Using Windows Phone as an Ex-Android User
So I recently bought the Nokia Lumia 920, windows phone, after 2 years of using the HTC Aria a nice phone, though became a bit slow and was too small. The Nokia phone is great in terms of design, specs and design. I was convinced to buy the Galaxy S3 because I really liked Android and Google in general, until I was wowed with the design of the windows phone and the nice specs (+100 dollars cheaper).
A few things about the OS.
Apps, Apps, Apps. Windows phone is greatly lacking in apps. This is something it needs to work on. I miss the abundance of apps with android.
Google Maps. Simply the best. Has more info than nokia maps. I miss it.
Gmail/Gdocs integration is not seamless at all. I use gdocs a lot for collaboration.
Would like a dedicated google+ app.
I like the tiles a lot, but I kind of miss the nice widgets.
Just some of my thoughts as an ex-android user (though I still use google products).
