Samsung’s Galaxy S4 Record Decimated By Microsoft’s Lowest End Nokia Lumia 520 Running WP8.1 WordFlow Beta (Video)April 4, 2014 No Comments
On January 16, 2014, Microsoft researchers and Windows Phone engineers set out to challenge the Guinness World Records fastest text message using a touch-screen mobile phone record. In the Shape-Writing Enhancements for Windows Phone video below we see the record being destroyed by the previous record holder using competing software and the Samsung Galaxy S4. Fun Fact: Samsung’s highest end device running Android ($600) just got beat by a Windows Phone, ($49) and the lowest end one available at that, in speed and performance. Check it out below:
Typing on a touchscreen device without having to look at the screen could be extremely useful in cases when it’s either dangerous, interruptive or impolite to text. Microsoft researchers developed a novel UX and robust decoder to shape write in groups of characters. To demonstrate the feasibility of this approach, the research team broke the Guinness World record for touchscreen and blind texting, and worked with the Windows Phone team to include the WordFlow feature in Windows Phone 8.1.
Ahh. What a PHENOMENAL time it is to be a Windows Phone user. Android users can argue plenty about the Windows Phone, but if its one area that they should never speak on it would be the great speed and performance that is delivered on each and every device running the OS. .
