Butthurt Phone Fanboys

Recently I purchased a HTC 8x with Windows 8 and had a terrible experience. I returned the phone and got an S3 in exchange. Before I bought the Windows phone, I did a lot of research. I knew the market would be barren and all that jazz, but from what I read, the phone would make up for it. Seriously, I couldn't find a single negative review.

I had to rectify this situation, so I wrote a review on T-Mobile's page for the phone detailing how much of a pain in the ass the phone had been. It was straightforward and honest. I tried to avoid just flat out insulting the phone and only gave an account of what happened with the phone while it was in my possession. Yes, most of these things were negative, but no one else was saying them.

The annoying thing is, while a good amount of people have found my review to be fair, more people have said they find it to be otherwise. I think that's a load of bs. You don't find my review "unfair"; you find it contradictory to your fandom. You love the Windows phone so much, you can't stand someone talking bad about it.

All the positive reviews are the same dribble regurgitated over and over. "It's so fast! It's super powerful! Look at the pretty colors! Android sucks!" Then I go out on a limb and point out its obvious shortcomings and that makes me a bad guy.

Get the Windows phone's dick out of your mouth. It's just not that great. Just because I'm not delusional doesn't mean my review isn't fair.

I got a Lumia 800, I love it, it's just crap that the battery dies in no time.
It's fast and looks good - but seriously? Can't upload your own ringtones? You have to modify and cut them so they're 40seconds or less ._.?

I put ringtones on the HTC by hooking it up to the computer and transferring the files directly into the Ringtones folder. I didn't seem to have a time limit on mine. Hmmm.

Well you're in luck, the lumia 800 doesn't allow us to do it like that.
It's bullshit if you ask me, my old Samsungs didn't have a problem with it :shrug:

Yeah, that's weird. I looked at the Lumia T-Mobile carries (can't remember the model number, it's probably the one you have) and decided if I was going to go Windows, the HTC was slightly better than the Nokia. Now I just don't like Windows. Joy! :dummy:

Console fanboys are bad enough and now we have phone fanboys?

If there's a product on the market, there are fanboys.
