Went to the Other Side...for a Minute
Lately, I have been looking at Windows Phones. I bought a Nokia Lumia Icon, updated it with the new Developer's Program version of windows, and was really pleased with the performance of the device. The display is beautiful and Cortana is really fun and useful. I was not happy that any of my Android apps, which Windows also had in their store, I had to either pay for again, or my data did not transfer, such as Riptide GP2, but I could live with that. I thought I had a winner for certain. The one thing that I was not pleased about was the weight of the Icon. Although it feels solid, it is fairly heavy. It kept nearly falling out of my shirt pocket. I work in an emergency room and I just can't have that. The Icon reminds me in a lot of ways of my G2...sharp screen, fast performance, wireless charging, nearly the same dimensions, but it is heavy. It takes awesome pictures too, just like my G2. If there was a Windows tablet that gave a similar experience, I would probably convert to Windows across the board. I am back using my G2 for now as I am still trying to decide which direction I am going to go.
