    Well, these days I only use Android and WP8. So I cannot speak on iOS. I played with my friend's iPad Air and for me, nothing has changed. I don't knock iOS because is it very simple and easy to use. So you picking between iOS and WP8 is cool. Play with iOS8 (that'll be out when you upgrade) and WP8.1 before you decide...
    +1 I'm waiting for WP8.1, not too thrilled with iOS7. I did download the security patch this week though.

    Nice. I'm debating with this project 920 whether I should change the housing in addition to the screen. It is dinged up, but not terribly so...what you do think?

    I think I meant to say iOS7, the one with the refreshed design.

    And you are right, I want my phone just functioning and easy to use.

    We will see :-)

    Housing is quite easy and cheap to fix. The white one is available on eBay for $14 right now.

    And I also put on a new Body Glove case on it as well. I'll put a screen protector on it next week on Monday.

    If this wasn't a carrier model, I would be Ok in charge going the housing too. But I still have to go unlock the thing and I'm not feeling to spend a ton of cash on it...

    It's cool. Ease of use is always important. And that's why Android has made some of the changes they have in terms of stock Android. Still, I'm curious to see what 8.1 has, along with iOS8.

    Staying with WP would be the most convenient option anyway. With a better Spotify app soon to be released and a hopefully working VPN solution and a calendar that's not just a joke, I only need some nice new hardware and I think that will be it.

    I don't know if I will spend money to try out iOS8:-) My iPad2 will be too old by then:-)

    It boils down to how cheaply I can get it unlocked. Otherwise, I may just replace the screen only and use the same hosting. The dings while are as eye pleasing aren't completely terrible. Nothing that a case, new SIM tray and screen protector cannot address...

    Well, you've had your 8X longer than me, so that's fine to upgrade from. As along as I get the next round of updates, it should be ok for me to use for a good while. I'm not looking for anything spectacular hardware anymore. Just would rather see them mature the actual OS itself.

    The calendar is a joke. That's why I use Simple Calendar. If MSFT opened up the APIs for the Calendar app a bit more, then. The 3rd party offerings out there would be even better...

    I use Week View to make the calendar bearable. I add and change appointments in the built in calendar though, every other solution is just tedious without the APIs.

    I don't really like picture backgrounds on the tiles so far. Maybe I will change my mind though. Depends on how it is implemented and how it feels on the phone.

    I am also a little afraid readability will suffer, for example on message previews on the big tile.
