I have now in a couple of weeks been testing a Nokia Lumia 930 phone and it is soon time to return it. Importantly that need to be said here is that I have been using iPhones since 2008 and also for a short while I used an Android phone and quite quickly went back to the iPhone.
The iPhone and Apple has been very successful with their devices since the first came out. The amount of apps available for IOS is huge and companies and governments also have adapted and created usable apps for making the life of the user smooth.
The Windows Phone in it´s earlier versions have had its ups and downs and I have not seen it as a possible replacement before the version 8 of the OS and later..
Now as I have lived with the phone and tried to adapt I can really say that I like it.. the build quality is magnificent and the screen looks great, it is fast and I can manage my daily tasks, it is obvious that the development of the OS have got some attention and Microsoft have thought through how the phone should work and with the new features like for instance Cortana it is in the edge of Phone OS development..
Still I miss my banks app but they say that it is coming this year so when that one have arrived I can buy me self a beutiful Lumia
Some of the apps I have installed:
- SAS Scandinavian Airlines
- SVT Play
- Amazon Kindle
- Easy Park
- Facebook Beta
- Instagram Beta
- Lync 2013
- Office Lens
- PC Remote
There are of course more apps that would make it into the cut and the development of new apps go blazing fast so just because your favorite app right now only exist for Android or IOS that will change in a near future. I think we will see a fast changing map now that Microsoft owns the phone division of NOKIA and can make the momentum for devices and solutions that would attract new users that most likely could have been stuck with an iPhone before..
So when you are going to change device next time, think twice and look at the Lumia phones!
