You're completely right, honestly having had an Xperia running WM6.1, i've used the stylus minimally. The main times are when I write notes, which i can do with my finger but they're not that accurate. This is the same when I try and hand write on an iphone with my finger tip, why, because for the rest of my live i've used an implement such as a pen to write, so why not use a stylus when on a screen.
ANYWAY, its not the best admittedly, however I'd much rather have the sometimes difficult GUI than having the complete locked in and locked down world of the iphone.
Can I install any applications without having to get someone else to approve that I'm allowed to do so...... yes
Are there thousands of applications out there, which can all be found with that highly difficult 15 second google search rather than having to search through 15,000 fart applications to find what I want...... yes.
Can i customise how my phone software looks completely, again as I wish rather than as Apple tells me...... yes
And the best one, I can change the battery and add more storage rather than having to buy a completely new phone.
Also, please don't just respond with some irrelevant junk about 2 billion app downloads (1.9 billion of which regressed human intellect just that little bit further past the last fart app) or how the latest Iphone is quicker than anything else in the world.
