Looking for the next underdog
Historically, my defacto phone is more often than not iOS based, simply because its the best at what it does. Now for some reason, it bugs me and not for the typical reasons people roll out when justifying not owning an iPhone.
It’s because its the best at what it does and for that reason it bores me. Its an amazing operating system coupled with beautiful hardware and yet it leaves me cold.
I think I’m a perennial underdog lover, after all it the platform you are on is already the best where is left to go? I find it much more interesting to go with a different platform as see how it evolves to try and better itself in this ultra competitive market place.
It’s why I am a webOS fan, its a great little operating system cursed by bad implementation, It’s also why I’m not a massive Android fan (in spite of just buying and embarrassingly cheap Xperia Play) because it just feels like iOS knock off in a lot of regards.
However I am not going back to that £10 Nokia I have been sporting and so I will stick with Android for now, but I am looking for my next underdog and it might just be Windows Phone.
