Some reasons why I want a phone running a desktop OS phone(a modern-day OQO if you please)

Failed to open selected file (Samsung TouchWiz web browser)

Inability to flag comments on Facebook Mobile

Me: “I hate it when mobile web browsers zoom in to text boxes!!!!!” (Samsung TouchWiz web browser again, also applicable to other mobile web browsers)

“Browser size = 640×312 Screen resolution = 640×360” (I’m using a 1920×1080 screen on my phone(a Galaxy Note 3) but this web browser(and possibly Google Chrome mobile) lies about the screen resolution!)

Also, YouTube allowing Content ID users to block their videos from being played on any other OS except for their web interface with the Flash player. Talk about censorship! (Photo used with permission from Megamix Central's social media)

(Another reason which I can’t document as a photo here: Inability to change the size of elements on the screen. Android only lets you change the text size, and I know Paranoid Android may be able to fix the problem, but I would want a version of that that keeps the best stuff from TouchWiz(S apps, multi window support, air features and smart features as well as the large number of toggles in the notification centre and the ringtones and notification sounds))

Even when i turn on the user-agent spoofer, some websites still give me the mobile version. Another thing i don't like.

Here’s what I would want to use: (Digitizer pen, dock and other accessories not shown)

OQO model 3 basic concept

Or at least this:

Note3-Win8-Concept

Yes this is a photo of a Galaxy Note 3 with a Windows start page pasted on it. I personally use the black one myself.
