Pros and Cons of Smartphones running on Windows 8 OS.


Hello Hermoo,

I have done some research and found the following pros and cons of Windows Phone:


– It is very user friendly, your friend will not waste a lot of time in learning how to use it.

– It is a very smooth, lag free operating system.

– It has a very good integration system, you can get all you contacts and conversations from different places under one application.

– It receives updates more frequently compared to Android.


– Compared to the hardware the phone has to offer, it is a bit expensive.

– Android offers high level of personalization (Home screens, widgets, wallpapers), Windows Phone lack that.

– Android has a vast variety of applications many of which you can get for free, this is not the case with Windows Phone.
