  1. “Yet Google still has them beat with the way Android auto-backs up every picture taken via your Google+ account.” SkyDrive performs auto backup of pictures, videos, music, texts, settings and app lists. Its seamlessly integrated. How exactly does Google+ beat that?

      It’s been changed. There is a better point to be made actually. See end of last paragraph.

      Google Drive VS. SkyDrive is a good debate. Grist for the mill, that one… But the auto backup from Android devices to Google+ is more seamless than setting up a SkyDrive account and so forth.

      • I am not sure what you’re referring to that has been changed. I have used both platforms extensively (just sold my HTC one). Setting up a Google account is no different than setting up a Microsoft account in my experience. Are you writing assuming the reader has a Google ID already? Or is this a review for Android users?

        It seems a little tilted to knock a platform because it doesn’t integrate well with its competitor. Not to mention, the lack of Google support is Google’s lack of interest in developing for Microsoft products, I’ll let people draw their own conclusions on why that’s happening.

        I would assume that if someone is using WP for real, and not just a demo for a review or something of that nature, they will create a MS account, the same way I assume people will create a Google account when moving to the Android platform. At that point, the user gets a backup feature set from MS of everything I mentioned above, and when comparing against Android backup features, I just don’t see how you can say Google has them beat?
