Windows A few days I switched back to Windows Phone 7.5 as my main smartphone operating system. Why? Well, because I can. I like to change things up every now and then, and blessed as I am with an iPhone 3GS (currently pulling duty at my best friend as her portable gaming device), Galaxy SII with CM9, and an HTC HD7, I have the luxury of doing so. Now that I'm back in the neat, tidy, and straight-lined arms of Windows Phone 7 - three long-standing issues really break the illusion, which all come from one source: the networking stack.

Sure, the N9 looks nice, but I'm not sure the buttonless UI is all that great. Good for being buttonless, sure, but swiping twice to get from an app to the events screen (which is where new messages, mail, etc. shows up) feels more convoluted than simply pulling down the notifications screen on an Android device. Getting to the home screen simply by pushing the nice, mechanical home button is also better than the more error prone swipe movement.
