    After being back on Android for 3 days (S7 Edge) I am impressed with how far Android has come since I left it. I miss a few things from WP, mostly Cortana deep integration and the app management, but for the most part, it is such a better experience, I am sad to say. Samsung has done a really nice job.

    I am considering selling 950xl and going to Samsung - what do you mean by Cortana Deep integration? Doesn't google now do same things?

    I'm guessing that they meant that if they specifically want to use Cortana, it doesn't work as well as on Android?

    I'm not really sure what Google now doesn't do that cortana's does. My phone does have to be plugged in or the screen on for Google now to work. But Google now also automatically searches your screen (like a webpage or app) when I turn it on in marshmallow and can unlock the phone with my voice when the features are activated. Otherwise it predicts my activities the same and so far does the same things, sometimes better. Yesterday I asked it "is restaurant x open now", and it instantly spoke the answer "no". I don't remember cortana working quite that well.

    I agree with you. But I wonder:
    Is it the hardware?
    Or just a crappy OS?
    My experience was probably a mix of both. No time to alpha test a product and OS.

    Just said "Hey Cortana," and woke her on my 1520 (10.0.10586.218) from Glance screen. "Is Happy China open now?"

    I got the verbal reply "Happy China is open until 10 PM," along with this information.
