>>47689476 imo BB10, lack of apps aside, >Gesture base UI perfected >The Hub >Not a resource hog >Battery efficient (Even on small battery devices like the Z10 I got 18hrs of medium use with a 1800Mah battery) >The Hub >Secure >The Hub is fucking amazing.
Cons: >Lack of many apps that make it onto other platforms (the apps we do have are really really good though I must say) >Lack of animations that make iOS/WP/Sailfish fun to use (Android's animations are just time wasting)
>>47689476 Which are the top-right and bottom-left?
>>47689654 I remember reading a while ago that one of the new(at that time) BB firmware updates allowed for installation of android apps without needing to convert the apks which should mean that almost all the android apps would work on it.
I'd go for bbos as >>47689654 anon said It's secure, it's not flashy, doesn't look childish.
Has a huge drawback of not having apps at all which it compensates by android compatibilty layer which works but works not like you'd want it to work so it hardly counts/ That being said i use a mobile banking app written for android on my bb and i haven't noticed any issues.
What i like about bb are those bult in social media apps like twitter and facebook. They lack few functionalities which is sometimes aggravating and development of them seems slow (like eveything with bb right now) but i like the fact that they fucking work and fb while running uses 16MB of ram and not fucking 120.
also - hub all notifications in one place and the ability to work right inside that place. It's mint to the point where i wonder why noone else copied it from BB pic related
>>47691472 Do companies change layouts and shit just for the sake of changing it? Like even if the design is perfect they'll still change it for the better or worse for no apparent reason. I guess they just get payed for pointless updates.
>>47691569 They're changing it because of bullshit made up things like having to have the same design across desktop and mobile. I'm just sad because I'm on a 2 year contract and Microsoft is most likely too proud to toss the shitty inconsistent ball of "design" a.k.a MDL2 in the garbage and return to Metro that has been praised over and over again for its usability and intuitiveness on mobile.
As of January, there are now more applications in the Google Play Store than there are in the Apple App Store. Further, there exist a number of quality applications on Android that are not available in the Play Store but which may nonetheless be run on numerous Android devices without needing to exploit a security vulnerability on the device.
And the lack of devices capable of running modern applications is the fault of hardware manufacturers, not the OS.
Is there some OS that has a lightweight keyboard? I can't tell if it is the scheduler, the runtime or what but android takes forever to load the keyboard. It is a lot worse on slow CPU's but even the fast ones have a large delay every time you open a menu or the search...
And people who claim to never notice this are either lying or haven't used android...
GPS is a proprietary format and uses it's own frequencies for operation; it has nothing to do with any cellular technology directly.
What you want to focus on is A-GPS (Assisted GPS) which uses cellular tower info (provided by the carriers) that works in conjunction with the GPS hardware in your smartphone to get a location much faster since cell towers are terrestrial (read: on the surface of the planet) compared to the GPS satellites roughly 23K miles in orbit.
With A-GPS working correctly you can get and maintain a solid location fix without much hassles. There are other assisted forms of GPS as well (using Wi-Fi hotspot data in a similar manner).
Smartphones today can do pure hardware GPS but they do tend to work better overall with A-GPS (GPS + cellular location data).
