Anyone here got both? I have PS4 (CUH-1216A) and Xbox One S.
Is it me or the Xbox One dashboard sucks? Microsoft are software giant but boy they have been put to shame by Sony here.
Xbox One vs PS4;
Xbox: Game installation from disc slow (without update).
PS4: It has better installation from disc without update. Even with update it will install from disc far faster and at the same time the update will download in the background.
Xbox: Limited to one download at a time and no time indication of remaining time left for download.
PS4: You can literally have 3 files on download same time it even tells you remaining time left.
Xbox: Fan noise on these Xbox One S is a hit or miss. I've had it replaced three times and finally have non faulty one. These Xbox One S have this known buzzing noise from the fan.
PS4: My CUH-1216A PS4 is quiet but it does get a bit loud when you play high graphics game like Uncharted, DOOM.
Xbox: The entire dashboard looks cluttered still. The store is a mess so many different versions of the game and the entire store UI is shambolic.
PS4: Nice, clean and fast.
Xbox: Microsoft servers are ****. I mean seriously. I have fibre 40Mbps. Downloading digital games will be throttled by Microsoft. It will say download at 38Mbps then randomly boom 1-3Mbps. Quantum Break Episodes Pack (75GB) stops at 1% and says installing, no mention of download speed. (after 40minutes still on 1% doing nothing).
PS4: No problems downloading three files at same time. Even downloading a single digital game I get the full speed of 38Mbps constantly!
As a test these were done via ethernet. I connected Xbox One S downloaded games. Nothing else connected to router via Wi-Fi or ethernet. I did the same for PS4 (disconnecting the Xbox One of course). Nothing else connected to router apart from PS4. I am on Sky Unlimited so no fair usage, non of that speed restriction or limit.
