Windows Phone vs iPhone 4 Task Speed Test [Video]

The above video shows a task speed test between the iPhone and a Windows Phone 7 device (Samsung Focus), which included the following steps:

  1. Take a Picture
  2. Upload Picture to Facebook with Caption ("Check out my new hat!")
  3. Update Status ("I love weekends!")
  4. Find Directions to a Restaurant (Olive Garden)
  5. Get Movie Times ("Fast Five")
Unfortunately for our iOS friends, WP7 comes out tops due to it's simplicity and superb social integration. Does this remind everyone of the previous comparison adverts Microsoft released

Thanks James for the tip!

Windows Phone vs iPhone 4 Task Speed Test [Video]

What about the step where you need to adjust your camera settings because the WP7 camera app resets them every time the app is closed?

I would say the guy on the iPhone didn't use it very efficiently. You can take pictures within the Facebook App, you can also quickly find movies and directions with the 'Bing' app, which is a little ironic. As the Bing app on the iPhone is better then WP7. :-P

Matter of fact, with the iPhone Bing app you don't even have to type you can just 'say' it, and it displays the nearest Olive Garden as well as a 'Map It' button.

You can use voice search on WP7. Works extremely well for what I have used it for -- I imagine it works well on iOS too.
