Re: A Windows Phone Fanboys Review of iOS 7 on the 5S
Not everyone (meaning myself) wants to have a cluster of notifications constantly going off. I prefer the "delay" that WP gives and how I can purposely have a select few of apps be in my constant sight for notifications.

Don't. Just don't. Anyone who has been with Windows Phone knows the situation with updates. Go ahead and list all the updates your phone got and the features that were added. Go on. Show us what Microsoft does for its users.
To you it's inferior, for me it does a better job than my iPhone did. I'm not looking for an argument and I'm not looking to be right. All of this is subjective, but you are getting on the OP for being biased but seem to be doing the same thing just cause you had a bad experience. I could write off the iPhone as a piece of crap because the battery life was horrible FOR ME, but I know several people personally that can get through a full day of heavy use. And BTW, the OP didn't advise anyone to go buy a Windows Phone, so that shows you didn't really read his original post
I have been on WPCentral and you are simply using rose-colored glasses while over there. With all due respect, open your eyes and take off the glasses. You are posting like this and don't expect people to respond to you? Should we all bow down to your logic and smash our iPhones and go out and buy a clearly inferior product?
He didn't insult ANYONE in his original post, so why don't you log off for a minute and chill out? Again, open your eyes when you go back to WPCentral. You admit you insulted people and you expect them not to defend themselves?
Really? Yes. Apple is always heading to something revolutionary that the others attempt to adopt. Android leads to revolutionary things which others attempt to adopt. Yet WP8 and BlackBerry? Nope. Sorry but if you're not seeing anything extra with all the shortcomings of Windows Phones then you will never switch. I'm sorry but as you stated in your OP, you are what they call a fanboy and will never see anything revolutionary because you don't want to. You want to stick to a brand out of loyalty not out of functionality and how the company keeps its promises and how it delivers.
As far as the "shortcomings" and the "non-revolutionary" things that WP is doing, I see a LOT of metro influence being adopted by Android and iOS7 so.....
And WP8 was enough for me to switch from Apple AND Android (had an iPhone 5 and an Optimus G)
