quote: First, Mango supports LTE. The problem is the OEMs can't deliver an LTE phone that meets Microsoft's battery life requirements. I was in the VZW store last week getting my wife a phone for Christmas and the salesman was explaining to a couple who were buying two Bionics that if they left LTE turned on they could expect about 6 hours of battery life. That's just not going to cut it, I need my phone to make it at least 10 hours without being charged. And I don't want to have to fiddle with radio settings to get it there. That's why WP handsets don't currently have LTE.And then there's the whole dual core ordeal. Why do you need a dual core smartphone? The only reason you need it with Android is because the OS is so poorly optimized that the dual core helps smooth it out but not all that well. A Droid Razr still feels clunkier than my 1Ghz Trophy that matches the specs of a Droid 2. So I'm not seeing the benefit. Not to mention do you think the average user goes into the store and says "I need a phone with dual core and more GigaHertzes"? No, they don't and they don't care. They go with the Android because that's what salespeople push and the commercials are cool. They go with Apple because it's Apple and they think it's automatically awesome.
