Google So yeah, Google totally just won the conference showdown by easily beating both Apple and Microsoft. Not only did Google announce Android 4.1 with some really cool new features, a cheap but non-crippled tablet, and a new Android device called the Nexus Q, but they also opened up pre-orders for Google Glass. So yeah.

I'm glad after throwing a quad core CPU and a monstrous GPU its almost as smooth as iOS and Windows Phone.


My SII with CM9 is just as smooth as iOS, perhaps even smoother. WP7.5 is smoother *in some applications*, but in most, it's a total turd sandwich due to how WP7 handles networking; everything starts to stutter and comes to a grinding halt when networking is slow, which is all the time on WP7 - even on wifi backed by a 120MB connection.

I'm sorry, this is completely wrong. In fact in the article where you complained about this no one agreed with you.

Uh, I think you need to go back and re-read that thread.

It's a fairly common problem. Some have fixed it with system restores, but that's not an option for me.

The issue occurs when you have cellular and wifi data enabled at the same time. Even if you have great cellular connection. Thus, if you're using wifi, disable cellular data. For now at least. It also gives a great boost in battry life and the phone runs cooler in my case. By a lot.


I've had intermittent networking issues with my HTC Arrive on Sprint, both on WiFi and EvDO. Not quite as bad as what you've described though; mostly the web browser inexplicably unable to load a site via either connection method while the PC I'm at, connected to the same WiFi network, has no problem. It's very random and has only happened a few times in the past six months I've had the phone.

I've also occasionally had live tile update issues, but only with certain third party apps and the "Me" social notification tile.


I have a Samsung Focus, and have had some of those same issues. I almost never have a problem with the built-in stuff like mail, but some 3rd party apps give me problems on live tile updates.

[...]

And occasionally, even on WiFi, it'll tell me that it's having trouble getting updates from Facebook, which I usually take to mean that maybe instead of looking at Facebook updates on my phone, I should go do something more useful than look at Facebook updates, anyway.


Now go and look around the web. I'm not alone.

how vehemently you defend Microsoft, I hope there is a nice pay cheque for you at the end of all of this..

Wp8 announcement proves how crap the underlying subsystem of wp7 is. No support for dual core cpus, no support for high res displays etc. Poor Nokia, they dumped Meego, they dumped the N9 which was apparently half baked, to lay in bed with Microsoft and sell Microsofts half baked OS and no update to wp8 ... :facepalm:

There is a reason wp7 appears smooth its running on a low screen resolution, on a mainly text based interface, it doesn't multi task properly it doesn't do half the stuff Android does, its live tiles are mediocre compared to notifications. The notification systems on Android and ios do this task _much_ better and the newer updates for jelly bean only serve to widen the gap.

Next time for some surface bashing, 10" too big for a tablet too small for a laptop.

I cant imagine getting any serious work done on a 10" screen, Cant use the keyboard on anything other than a table, as it doesn't support the weight of the screen and will just fall off of your lap. Can you imagine sitting on a couch watching TV and using this thing while trying to use the keyboard ? It makes the keyboard absolutely useless.. All that bull about the noise of the hinge who gives a flying monkeys. The whole point of a tablet is to use it away from your desk, while travelling, while walking around, Microsoft just doesn't get it, seriously they are completely clueless.

To anyone who is now going to post but you don't need the keyboard attached, again let me state what is the point of the keyboard if you can only use it at a desk ? the place you are least likely to use your tablet.
