WP 7.5 - Core functionality missing.
I love my Lumia 900 - and always have loved WP7. The only thing stopping me from using it in the past was the lack of beautiful hardware available for the operating system. Thus - Lumia 900.
After using it for over a week, here's my take on some serious drawbacks (from an iUser perspective):
- Marketplace (duh). I don't use many apps - but the few I do use aren't available. (Web banking, app to control my car starter/alarm, NAVIGON Canada, etc.). It's weird since everyone says WP7 is stupid easy to develop for.
- Some sort of notification queue. I'd love to have a pulldown similar to that in Android (preferably) or iOS. Was waiting forever for iOS to get one similar to Android just to end up switching to WP7.
- Click-to-call. I wish there was data detection baked into the OS. I like to just click a number in the browser to call, or touch and hold to create a contact, etc. You can't even copy/paste the number into the phone app.
- Wallpaper. I would like to customize it at least a bit more, though I love the live-tile look so this isn't that big of a gripe for me.
I think it is second to iOS in terms of functionality (pre-jailbreak, pre-root) - but it isn't too far behind and I love that MS is trying to do something different.
