    1st I'd like to dedicate this to all the fanboys ( of the 3 platforms) out there including the inept Cnet staff that pushed me to write this .

    " Liking a platform and preferring it is totally "cool" , but liking a company and thinking it's superior / more ethical / better / smarter / cooler is NOT."

    So let's go right to the point :
    Answers :

    1- Competition is good ! Even though Android feature wise was a lot more advanced than WP feature wise ( the difference is less with WP , but still is there , mainly because of rooting ) Without the competition and the difference from WP 7.5+ , Android would have nevr considered the UI and the general user experience to be a priority , heck Androids would be stuck with an interface reminiscent of GB and a very similar user experience with a few features reserved for the geeks among us ; and beautiful design improvements in iOS 8 and Material design which are more or less inspired by WP would have never existed . Disagree ? Read articles , Use windows vista , go to eye doctor to get a cure for the Bsod-blindness , re-read this paragraph ,repeat if necessary .

    PS : this is the best reason I could think of right now , blame insomnia ;p and now is your turn guys ;)
