I've used windows phone consistently for quite some time now. I'll be honest, I love it. The user experience from the operating system is unique and fluid. Its better in my opinion than Android and on par with Apple.
As part of a new series called Thirty Days Of Summer, I was challenged by my colleague, Roy, to try out the Android platform for 30 Days, as I own a Nexus 5 for development purposes. On Friday at Midnight I began my journey which began by picking up a micro sim card from the T-Mobile store (which was free by the way). I was expecting to pay $10 dollars. So I setup my Nexus device and began getting it all setup and once the setup process was complete I began preparing for the switch. I turned off my iMessage from my iPhone to prevent a bug which prevents messages to go iMessage from iPhone users.
Recently, I obtained a Motorola Moto G phone, and figured I might as well share my thoughts on it with you all. Before I got the Moto G, I was using two phones back and forth. The Nokia Lumia 521 (Windows Phone) and the Samsung Galaxy Exhibit (Android). Getting the Moto G, was like a step up to a powerhouse, even though the Moto G is an entry level style phone offered from Motorola. You can get the Moto G off contract for $179 for an 8GB model, or $199 for a 16 GB model. You can also receive an 8 GB model for around $99 on promotion from Boost Mobile, Aio Wireless, and Verizon Prepaid. However, I would recommend getting the 16 GB model, as there is no expansion slot to put a Micro SD card.
Until recently I owned an iPhone. I loved my iPhone. Alas, my phone bill was way too high, and with my wife and me expecting twins, I needed to find a way to cut costs. I went to a no contract provider called Metro PCS, and picked up the Nokia Lumia 521 Windows 8 Phone. I had toyed around with the idea of getting a windows phone for quite some time, and with switching providers, I thought it was a great chance to actually take the plunge. Let me be clear, I loved my iPhone. I don’t claim to say that Windows Phone 8 is better or worse than IOS, but it sure is different, and here are my experiences and thoughts.
