His phone was jail broken and modded to hell and back only to be fast at this ONE task. It proves nothing except you can mod your phone to make it a weather station able to show weather a fraction faster than a multi purpose phone.
Call me when he can do it faster on a OOB phone.
To be honest it doesn't surprise me that you would reply like this because you defend Windows Phone a lot and own one. I own an iPhone but if Apple did this I'd call them on that **** in an instant. What they did was wrong. The guy won fair and square and this isn't the first time this has happened see post above this one from Am_I_Evil
And in my opinion Microsoft cheated anyway by not only setting up the competition with rules they knew ahead of time but by having their screen widgets already setup to show the time in two cities so they knew they would be the fastest. How many people really look at the time in two cities? I bet quite a small proportion. They are just sore losers because this city test was obviously one they believed they would win no question as probably a safety one against people they thought showed intelligence and might actually win.
Also FYI he says his phone is completely stock not rooted at all and the lock screen deactivation is a built in feature he didn't need to root for it (nor is his phone rooted or modified)
