Good: The Interface is very good
Bad: my version runs out battery
Comment: I think MS have done a great job. This is MUCH easier to use than Android. Everything seems very intuitive. I like the way the phone adapts to angles so if your talking on the phone and you remove it from your ear it pops up the close call dialogue. It also is quick to pop up keyboadr when needed. Overall the best phone I have ever used.
Good: Smart, simple, intuitive
Comment: I have the HTC Mozart on Orange. I swapped from an iPhone 3G and mainly used it for email, Facebook and some web browsing. The Windows 7 OS has great integration of contacts from Facebook and my Windows Live account, all in one place and stored online so no need for back up. Its fast on the web and simple to use and navigate. I do not often use apps so the limited market place doesnt really bother me.
From having an iPhone for 18mths, the biggest challenge was getting used to a totally different interface, I must admit that the first hour of using the phone I deeply regretted switching from the iPhone but within 24hrs I find myself loving the simplicity and potential the phone has. The iPhone is great but wasted on me. If all you use your phone for is calls, texts, email and Facebook, then the Windows 7 OS is perfect!
Good: Seems like a nice user interface
Bad: I don't use any components of the MS ecosystem
Comment: One the main attraction of the Android platform was for me the integration with the cloud services google is building and of which I use mail, contacts and calendar.
There is no such attraction for me in the the MS Live world as I use none of it. The OS would have had to be as ground breaking as iOS at its debut for me to consider and it's not but I am sure it'll find a public.
