    Hey there, Microsoft & Windows lovers!
    I'll make this introduction short for you.
    Two weeks ago, I finally made the move and left Google. For real.
    I never thought I'd do that, but I did that, and to be honest, I am very
    happy with Microsoft and their services, and especially with my Lumia
    1320. Seriously - 1 GB of RAM yet it still runs smooth as hell, and that's
    just incredible!

    Oh, and the name is Shawn, in case you're wondering.
    Glad to be here and glad to be a fan of Microsoft.

    Welcome, Shawn.

    I too have severed anything Google from my devices. Annoyingly, YouTube remains hard to get away from as everybody links there. I try and avoid that as much as I can and won't stay on there surfing. And I always look for alternate hosts for what I want when embedding, but I'm sure you see the difficulties.

    Anyway, glad you made the switch and are digging it.

    I have your phone's big brother, the Lumia 1520.

    Welcome to our side of the world Shawn :) Don't think I'll ever be able to leave Google fully and youtube is a good example of that. They provide their services and I just make sure, those are of value to me :p

    Hello Shawn

    You should try 512 MB ram devices like 635 I'm sure you will more surprised with it's performance.

    Anyway at MS platform we have extremely low official apps with great support. But 3rd party apps really fill the hole.
    I recommend you to Try LINE chat apps. One of the best around and they offer great support. Recently they bring an LINE game to windows phone called LINE CubeHeroes be sure to check that.

    I cut myself off from Google completely as well. YouTube is still persistent but I only really watch one YouTuber and he has his own website so I go there instead to watch his daily videos.
    After my Gmail was hacked, I no longer trust Google services. I fled to Microsoft services in seek of comfort and found a collection of fantastic services that suited me far more than the Google alternatives. Not to mention my two Windows Phones and Insider PC.

    Avoid YouTube? How is that possible? You'd pretty much have to avoid internet videos period to ignore YouTube lol...

    MS should totally buy YouTube imo

    There are great YouTube apps on Windows... MetroTube and PerfectTube apps are pretty good.

    To OP: Welcome.

    Welcome Shawn,

    this community somehow feels like a family, soon you will get used to the avatars, people do not change them much, to the point you start to think that you know them.

    and what ever you face, most probably the people here know how to fix it, so don't hesitate to ask...

    enjoy your fantastic device.

    Not going to happen since YT is owned by Google.
