    It's been a while Windows phone is gone, most of the people have embraced either iOS or Android . Can we share the pros and cons. Also any body using more of Microsoft apps and services
    Let's talk

    Pros of Android:
    - More apps than Windows Phone (in WP you can't even find popular apps like MeWe).
    - Sites displaying better (for example, in WP you will see Google search look like early 2010s)

    iOS is more like Windows phone in how it is uniform, secure, and locked down (compared to Android).

    Android is very open, very customizable, and you can make it look and act a lot like Windows phone, if that is your thing. There is almost nothing you cannot do with Android.

    In the past, iOS has prided itself (and rightfully so) on how it "just works", but Android in the last couple years has become very similar. If you don't try to hack too much, Android "just works" as well. Put an iPhone and an Android phone side-by-side, out of the box, with minimal customization, and they are a remarkably similar experience.

    Microsoft is difficult to understand for most of the user mainly for noob or non-tech user and on the other hand, Android is a cup of everyone tea.

    I moved to Android as well. It has similarities to Windows Mobile and MS seems to support it more over iOS.

    Just made the jump into IOS. Ugh.

    The one thing that drives me nuts the most is the absence of the back space on the keyboard. That and no keyboard swipe. I see that I have to use an app for that, which is pathetic.

    The strength of WMP was likely due to its weakness in the apps deficit, which meant that MS had to really work hard to incorporate features that Apple leaves to others to develop.

    I tried an Android for a few months, hated it. I'l keep this iPhone 8, I suppose, but I am so gong to miss WMP.

    I was hoping to use Your Phone integration, but that only works on Android. I do hope MS is adding that to IOS soon. Could be a reason to move, as even my WMP allowed me to at least respond to SMS on desktop.

    In 2019, the mobile OS landscape Android/iOS looks pretty much the same. I’ve dual carried two devices for 13 years and I carry Android/iOS combination. Each has pros and cons but for me, it doesn’t really matter.

    I still think it's funny that iOS, at least the iPhone X I use occasionally at work, has to be turned off by an option in the Settings menu because holding down what used to be the power button (or what you would expect to be the power button) doesn't actually turn it off,

    Of course I am most likely just doing it wrong really! I am a Windows Phone/Android user.

    Yes, you are doing it wrong.
