Default The ten (small) things I love about Windows Phone

I know its a bit random but I figured Windows Phone deserves it.

Here is my top 10:
1. The UI
2. When I receive a text the screen doesn't turn on until it recognizes light.
3. Music Player
4. Zune sync
5. Easy developement
6. Easy to use
7. Automatic Brightness works better than others (iPhone)
8. Contacts sync online, no need for backups!
9. FaceBook + Twitter integration
10. IE Mobile
Phones I've Owned: Note 3 N900W8 (Current), Motorola RAZR HD, Xperia SP, Galaxy Note II, Xperia ZL, Nexus 4, HTC 8X, LG C900, HTC Titan, HTC HD7, Desire Z, iPhone 3GS (SUCKED!), Samsung Focus, Galaxy S Vibrant, LG Optimus One.

Also the SkyDrive integration with office mobile, very handy with OneNote. It will be a killer feature when Windows 8 is released since it revolves around SkyDrive

This Feature is great. I'm not sure if ist based on the Ambient Light Sensor or the Proximity Sensor. But it sure saves some battery when I have the phone in my pocket.

Another thing I absolutely love is the Office/SkyDrive integration. I set up the SkyDrive App on my Windows PC and added a Folder called "Synced Documents". Then I added this folder to my Documents Library. Now I can easily save Documents on my PC and they are automatically synced to my WP. I then can edit them on the go and review These changes back at home.

Hmm my phone (LQ Quantum, c-900b) does not behave this way.

What phones do not turn on the screen when they sense they are in the pocket? (i would guess it would be proximity sensor not ambient light)

Default Well mine is a bit nerdish

I love the fact that the calculator changes functions when you turn in from different orientations turn left trig turn right hex, bin calculator pretty cool imho.
History have had plenty of Pocket PC's, and other PDA devices.
Samsung Focus (Custom Rom) and Focus S (Interlop Unlocked) and Transformer TF101 w/Megatron and 17C (Stable for work use)

Nobody does Office like MS. Skydrive Browser for Android, has anyone used this abomination? Even Windows Mobile 5, 6, 6.x synced tasks, can't say the same for Google. Quickoffice and Documents to Go are capable 3rd party solutions for iOS, Android and even webOS, but none give you the same experience as the "real thing".

I love, Love, LOVE that I can write something up on my laptop and save it to a SkyDrive subfolder, and within a few minutes have it appear on my phone. The SkyDrive update was one of the most amazing things to happen so far.
