PC Advisor decided to see which is the best mobile platform by pitting the Nokia Lumia 620 against the iPhone 5, Blackberry 10 and Sony Xperia Z, in a test designed to see which phone was easiest to use by novices unfamiliar with the platform.
PC Advisor took four groups of users and deposited them in the centre of Edinburgh with a phone and a mobile platform that each had never used before and set them a series of navigational challenges, asking them to find and take pictures of famous landmarks identified only by cryptic clues.
Unfortunately we can not report that the team assigned the Nokia Lumia 620 did very well with the device, who in the end resorted to paper maps and emailing their pictures to Facebook instead of uploading them using an app, which they did not seem able to find.
The other groups overall did much better it seems, and I wonder if Windows Phone’s radically different user interface is responsible, or if the phone drew the short straw when it came to the capability of its team.
What do our readers think? Let us know below.
