Hi there everybody.

 

My old phone is already on the verge of withstanding so it's time to think of a new one. And here the question is asked. Which platform to choose? On my old phone android runs like crap (probably small amount of RAM. Only 1GB and snapdragon 410). I was thinking on two devices:
-Alcatel OneTouch Idol 3 (4.7-inch)
-Microsoft Lumia 640 XL DS
All the time my thoughts revolve around Lumina. Never had a smartphone with Windows Phone. But I do not know how it is with applications on this platform. Can someone write something on this subject (as with applications, system stability, updates, etc.)?
On the other hand, Alcatel is on android. 5.5 inch version has a Snapdragon 615 and 2GB of RAM, so in theory should walk quickly and smoothly (I heard that 615 is not significantly different from 410. I may be wrong)
 
So, which phone would You choose?
 
Thanks for any interest.
Peace.

Sorry for my low english, but I'm trying my best  ;)

Can You give me specific details of why lumia over Idol? I heard that the WP has some deficiencies in applications (particularly care about Youtube. Others are not so needed me)

As an android fan, I'd say the Lumia. The Lumia 532 that I tested for a week was much quicker than the same Android phone in its price range (Xperia E1), and ran brilliantly. The app ecosystem is a big issue, stuff like Snapchat, Soundcloud and Steam don't have native apps for the platform (but there is fan-made apps). Windows Phone is easy to get used to (my grandpa with a Pentium 4 machine can use it :)) and feels fluid and smooth with no noticeable slowdowns when I used it. My device had a Snapdragon 200 quad-core and 1GB of RAM. The 640 would perform a hell of a lot better.
