quote: I always thought Microsoft tied hardware compatibility into Windows Phone versions.
quote: And please stop being so hostile...
quote: They have to wait for Microsoft to update/patch the OS, which can be quite a long wait as their update cycle for Windows Phone seems to be glacially slow
quote: But according to reclaimer this can't possibly be true
quote: I'm 37 years old. Ever since I was a little kid I was watching things in 480p on TV and VCR tapes, and later DVD's. And we all thought it was "fine", and it was, until something better came along that is.
quote: 1280x720 may look better, but it will not enable me to do anything I can't do at 800x480.
quote: The problem is for the same money, you CAN get better specs and a better resolution.
quote: Please show me where the hell I said that or even implied it.
quote: Yes it's factually true that 480p is an inferior resolution that impacts image quality.
quote: Why are you acting so damn offended over this???
quote: Did you not read my post? I find the resolution absolutely fine, 4 years later
quote: Reclaimer stated that said resolution is not fine for today's hardware, even at that price point.
quote: And why is that a problem? Am I not entitled to say that? Do I no longer reserve the right to an opinion?
quote: If 800x480 was fine for a 3.7-4" screen 4 years ago, why wouldn't that be true today?
quote: The HTC Desire released four years ago. Think about it.This has lower resolution than a phone released FOUR years ago.Four years ago 480p was "fine" on a small phone. Today it's not, even at these price points.
quote: Unfortunately, Android as a whole requires more hardware than both iOS and WP
quote: even going as far as claiming wives love their husbands giving them Galaxy Tabs more than they would with Nokia 520s.
quote: First off why do you assume that's a "threat"?
quote: I hope you enjoy your new phone. Why wouldn't I?
quote: Well no offense, but that's just more FUD.
quote: If you couldn't tell I was joking
quote: the 630 flat out sucks because it has less display res than HTC Desire from 3-4 years ago.
quote: Unfortunately, Android as a whole requires more hardware than both iOS and WP. It's not tuned to run smoothly on the low-end hardware that phones in this segment are used to. It needs 720p, fast dual-cores or low-powered quads, lots of RAM and other stuff - not because they make for a "better" sell, but because they're absolutely required to not make the user experience suck.
