I love my Windows Phone. I’ve had it for about 7 months now, and I adore it. Except for the camera. Now they aren’t all uniform phones like the iPhone is. So it depends on what phone you have, on how the camera is going to be. But the HTC Trophy for Verizon, does not have a good camera at all.
I headed into NYC last Wednesday night for an event.The event was for the launch of the 2 newest Windows Phones. And they are gorgeous, and take amazing photos. They are the Nokia Lumia 900 and the HTC Titan II. Both phones are only available on AT&T, which I’m super bummed about. I want them! We have Verizon, and our contract is up in June. So I may be leaving them to go get the better Windows Phones.
For moms the camera is key on a camera. I don’t want to be lugging my Nikon around wherever I go, so having a camera conveniently on the phone is great! Just take it out and snap. And with the Windows Phone I don’t even have to have the phone switched to viewing to take a photo. Hold down the camera key on the side, and the camera will just come on and you can snap a picture so easily.
But I know the phones are better on the new Windows Phones. A Rep took a picture with one of the new phones, then I took a picture with my old Windows Phone, and yeah mine looked horrible. Compared to the HTC Titan II that I tested it out against, it was way below sub-par. The Lumia 900 also takes amazing pictures.
I’ve heard rave reviews of the Lumia 900 from numerous sources on the web. Mainly TechCrunch because that’s what I read almost every single day to keep up with my Tech news.
I should have taken pictures of the phones. But I was just enjoying myself, talking with the Windows Phone PR team (They are super nice and made me feel very welcomed) and learning some new tricks about my Windows Phone. (I can show you a picture of NYC from where I was standing on a rooftop deck though!)
People may be wary of trying out a Windows Phone. It’s the new kid on the block. But it’s going to be around for a long time, it’s just functional! You don’t have to go to one app to do one thing, and another for something else. It’s quick and linear. I’m sure other Windows Phones owners would tell you that they love their phone as much as I love mine!
