According to Lifehacker, Windows Phones and iPhones are easy to use and suitable for users who need only certain features without extensive amenities. Windows Phones are easiest for users who only want to text, use e-mail and browse the Internet, while iPhones are easiest for users who prefer using apps.
Overall, Lifehacker rates Windows phones as the easiest to use for those with no background in smartphone use. Windows phones have a self-explanatory interface that anyone can use without needing instruction. It also comes in numerous models for users who want bigger screens or different button configurations. However, the iPhone comes with a comprehensive app store, making it more suitable for users who want an easy-to-use tablet substitute.
