What does iPhone has that Windows Phone doesn't ? Nothing anymore.
I've been a Apple dis-liker for some time now, I don't hate Apple by any means (significant difference between not liking and hating) . They are a brilliant company, world class products. iPhone is a brilliant phone. It is a very subjective thing to say, but I kinda feel that the iPhone has a certain harmony to it. Hardware, software, and ecosystem just merges together to give you a powerful device in your hand. But again, I don't like it. Why ? I don't know. I've been using Windows since I started using computers. Got a chance to use a Mac one, didn't really give it a try to explore, so, whatever.
Me and Nokia/Microsoft
Now, the Windows Phone and Nokia.--I have a history with Microsoft and Nokia. As I've used Windows throughout my life, I've used Nokia as my cell phone company. Nokia 1100, Nokia N70, Nokia N95, Nokia XpressMusic 5800. Nokia N8. Lumia 800. I wont lie, Symbian was a pain to use but still a functional OS. Got you the job done, but wasn't easy. When the N8 came out, new Symbian^3 platform, that 12 megapixel monster, I had my wallet ready from day one. Got the phone, as usual, nice hardware, software still in the woods.I even bought Zune HD, nice device, served me well. Bought Lumia 800 next, basically, without any research, just saw a brief YouTube video. I used both devices(N8 and L800) side to side. Only then I realized what I was missing. Windows Phone 7.5 for me was a super fresh gust of air. Fluid, responsive, intuitive, that said, it was lacking horribly. I almost banged the phone against the wall when I listened to the music quality through the headphones(N8 was light-years ahead). No equalizer was a further shock. No screen snap, what ? Can't be true. It indeed was. Camera ? I wasn't expecting it to be a N8 but still it was pretty bad. Never been an app junky, do lack of apps was never a concern. No way in hell it could compete with iPhone 4/4s
All the problems stated in L800 have been more or less rectified in L920. Sexy piece of technology. Actually gave me goosebumps when I saw a picture I took in my hallway with almost no light and it came out to be quite visible. Equalizer , yes, screen snap, yes. Frontfacing cam, yes, nice apps, yes.Hefty? Can be, for me, no. My lumia 800 definitely never had that harmony that I noticed in iPhone, Lumia 920 definitely does. Nokia has done something right here, I can't pinpoint exactly what. I really wish Nokia makes a come back, pushes Apple and Android to innovate more and inturn benefit us all.
