5 things Windows Phone can do that iPhone can’t
1. You can view and edit Microsoft Office apps like Word, Excel spreadsheets or PowerPoint. Not surprisingly Microsoft hasn’t written versions of its Office apps for the iPhone. Apple has its own Office-alike suite called iWork, but there are 1 billion Office users.
2. Windows Phone lets you customise your home screen by resizing Live Tiles. On iPhone you can’t customise what apps are on your home screen.
3. Live Tiles mean you can see real-time updates on your home screen of emails, Facebook or any other real-time app. iPhone apps can only show you the number of notifications you’ve received.
4. Windows Phones have Near Field Communications (NFC) chips built in. You can swap data by touching phones and make payments by waving the phone over any NFC terminal.
5. You can charge your Windows Phone using the built-in standard USB socket, and any standard USB lead (from the cigarette lighter in your car, for example) . Apple has its own design socket (called ‘Lightning’) that is more difficult to use and needs a special lead. Some Nokia Windows Phones can be charged wirelessly, just by placing them on the charger.
