A big rectangular shape with similar shapes for a GUI?
In other words a brick?
Nice book end.

Wow, that one phone with 3 whole tiles is so useful. Not!

If you had a Windows phone you would understand that you can manipulate your home screen however you want, WP has many different faces. Judging by your constant bashing one would think you would have understood this by now, oh well.

Unpin all the tiles and you'll end up with just a list of all your apps. That should suffice a kid's smartphone needs, shouldn't it?

Windows Phone has wallpaper available on the lockscreen as clearly shown in the 1st picture.

+1

I own a GS5 and a Lumia 925 and I can say Windows Phone is just as functional as Android. It's just a matter of OS preference now.

I have one. Also Nokia X used a lowly Cortex-A5 CPU. I thought WP8.1 now supports cortex-A7 and above, and not a cortex-A5. So if they will support that low level CPU all the best. Just like I don't know why they released Nokia X with that crappy CPU in the first place.

In a country with a 3in screen, you don't need much more, considering you can scroll, it makes it so much easier as well.

Do you only think in one dimension?

I like the tile shape it makes facing screen down.
They got me there.

Why is it that none of the Lumia series look good? The concepts are not any better even,

The Lumia 630 and 930/Icon look pretty good IMO...

Some sort of dystopian Fisher Price. A square phone full of little square icons.

Drop the OSB and it will be better. Wonder what Lumia 120 would look like?

This Lumia is a colorful Xperia E with Windows Phone. I wonder what the Lumia 010 will look like, maybe a phone laggier than the original Samsung Galaxy (from June 2009).

Lumia 000 won't lag as badly as you know who.

I guess, because the OS is made with less top end features.
Will a Lumia lag with THESE specs?
ARM11 Single Core 250MHz Processor
64MB RAM
Too much useless Bloatware from Samsung, LG, and Nokia

Its not possible in today's date to make a wp with those specs. Dual core kraits are the minimum requirement for WP OS. That's one of the very few things I like about WP...

Did you even use an 2014 released Android phone to know personally that its lag?

The general public keep buying Android avoid wp8. This is true in even 2014. None of my colleagues uses wp8. Even offered free and there no taker.

Guess the world still preferred lag over barrel.

People buying Android don't avoid WP that is a big lie that many spread around. Android and iOS are major fans of WP aesthetically. No disrespect to them but people buy them because of Samsung and Apple names rather than the actual quality of the product. WP is arguably superior to them. Look at HTC one its an Android phone that looks like WP, magazine UI etc, Sony Xperia Z flipping tiles, look at how flat Android L and iOS have gotten. Clean, simple minimalistic with large panels and clean text, fonts etc. WP was the only OS like that, its a trend setter you Android fans hate what those who you love copy look at your device UI its Windows Phone influenced show some respect.

I do not wish to put down wp8. Please be respectful to Android users as we are the majority after all.

Your attempt to insult us only show your own lack of intelligence and the unwillingness to explore new technology and features.

Respect is earned not given.

As an OS there are great things about Android, I dont bash Android I clear up lies of obvious trolls and do so by comparing different aspects of both OS. WP is my OS of choice, to me it is a great OS. Lay off the hate haters and let choice reigns.

I'm all for calling out any OS on its faults thats partly how progress is made but their is a big difference between constructive criticism and hatred.

I have respect for those who I consider real Androids fans, they fans don't go around bashing others. Haters shouldn't pretend to be one of them.

Well.. I dint want to join this conversation bit since you mentioned how magazine ui is copied from wp .. I had to jump in.

Clearing the facts :
1. Magazine ui is BORROWED FROM FLIPBOARD.
2. Flipboard is older than wp metro style.

WP was launched in Oct 2010, Flipboard was launched in December of 2010. WP beta was also released earlier in the year.
