Steve Wozniak (Co-founder of Apple): Windows Phone “intuitive and beautiful” – Picks Lumia 900 over AndroidApril 28, 2012 1 Comment
Finally people are starting to come around when it comes to Windows Phone and we can thank the Lumia 900 for that.
Super-geek and Co-founder of Apple, Steve Wozniak always keeps himself buried deep in gadgets and he has muliple Android and iPhone devices. Recently he purchased a Lumia 900 and he had this to say on aNewDomain.
Just for looks and beauty, I definitely favor the Windows 7 Phone over Android.
I’m kinda shocked how every screen is much more beautiful than the same apps on Android and iPhone.
I’m just shocked, I haven’t seen anything yet [in Windows Phone] that isn’t more beautiful than the other platforms.
It’s more intuitive and beautiful.
As far as eyes and visual, the Windows Phone is beautiful. [...] Especially compared to Android, it’s just no contest. The iPhone has a lot of beauty and simplicity, and you don’t get lost as much in it, but it’s more awkward to use.
It [the animation and design] just makes me feel like “oh my gosh, I’m more with a friend than I’m with a tool”.
He later updated the article via the comments section and wrote:
Wrong. iPhone is my favorite phone. I did give my opinion that the Windows 7 Phone had superior visual appearance and operation cues that were also more attractive. In my opinion, it sets the mark for user interface. I would recommend it over my Android phones given that it doesn’t yet have the breadth of apps. I surmise that Microsoft hired someone from Apple and put money into having a role in the UI and appearance of some key apps. I also surmised that Steve Jobs might have been reincarnated at MS due to a lot of what I see and feel with this phone making me think of a lot of great Apple things.
So he still prefers the iPhone but only because it has a larger library of apps. He did however say that he hasn’t seen an app that doesn’t look more beautiful on Windows Phone than the other platforms. Hopefully his geek cred can convice others to give Windows Phone a go.
