    iOS 8
    (and it will not be unexpectable to see Metro UI app for ios 8 which will be developed by MS, or maybe most improved one like Office and Skype on ios)

    I'd go back to Android and customize it to work like WP as much as possible. Don't think I could give up the simply beauty of the UI that I'm used to in WP now though.

    Otherwise, Blackberry...can't do Apple. My daughter has one, and I just can't get used to their UI. (Even though its a good solid platform.)

    If it had to be iOS or Android, I'd probably go for a Nexus device as the absolutely least disgusting option and use Microsoft services to minimize the data leached by Google.

    In reality though, I'd probably go back to a Windows Mobile device like my old HP614c and tether it with an 8" Windows tablet like the Lenovo miix 2, or get a dumb phone and a tablet with a built in SIM.

    Definitely not iOS again. I'd go back to Android. IDK where people get lag from. I had a GS3, rooted with the bloat removed and it was smooth as butter. I even kept the stock ROM. Definitely a great experience.

    Had the iPhone 4 from day one, and in the first 6 months the phone OS was corrupted 7 times and had to be wiped and reinstalled. Lost everything time and time again.

    Android. While I'm a huge fan of WP, I've always been a bit jealous of the customization, app market, and freedom the OS provides. I have a few Android tablets and love them.

    iOS, I couldn't care less for. I bought into the iPhone hype once and regretted it almost immediately.

    I have multiple devices on all three OS. iPod touch and iPad on iOS. Nexus 5 and Nexus 7 on Android and Lumia 810, 925 on WP and Surface for MSFT tablet. If you want to leave WP please consider stock Android on Nexus devices. I had a Samsung before (actually two of them) and those are crappy, laggy phones along with a whole lot of junk piled on by Touch Wiz and carrier bloatware. Once you root a Samsung and get rid of the junk it does tend to run quite smoothly but everyone does not need to learn how to do that. The stock Android experience on Nexus (or any GPe device for that matter) takes care of that issue and tends to run lag/crash free.

    iOS is nice but even with multi finger gestures it is still a bit clunky to use IMO. I find a happy medium to be a WP phone and a Nexus 7 tablet. The iOS devices are primarily used by my other family members.

    I'd get a second hand Nokia E7 and go back to Symbian. iOS and Android would both get a single two finger gesture I can't repeat less I get banned..

    Personally, I would activate my Z10 and use that. I think BB10 is the most intuitive OS available, and the granular control is amazing. If you are leaving because of the App shortage, I would probably pick up the One+ One or the HTC One. I have been on android before and thought it was okay. My only complaint was the terrible wait and/or lack of updates to the OS. I'll reserve judgement on iOS8 until the devices are available. $700+ for a phone is a large commitment, so I tend to lean away from Apple Devices. Thankfully, I am happy with my Icon so I don't anticipate updating my device for some time (unless they release a variant with an SD card slot. <3

    iOS is more secure and first for developers over Android. So would be that.

    However no plans to move as enjoying WP too much!

    Back to Blackberry, its the only other platform that works for me. I wish I could have a Blackberry WP Hybrid :)
    That would be awesome! The security, notification light, encryption, etc of a BlackBerry and live tiles of a WP...a match made in heaven!

    meego was my favorite UX, on the nokia n9, jolla is ok, but doesnt quite flow as smooth and simple as meego, wp next, then IOS, then symbian last of all android, too messy / illogical

    so if i had to leave wp, the only modern viable alternative would be ios. (as meego to old now)

    I'd go iOS since it's just one of those things where everything just works and has a good design for me. Google play services to me are too intrusive. Now Android phones require Google play to be enabled to be able to open apps like youtube and maps. If I were to choose Android it'd be something like a LG G3 or HTC One, beautiful phones in their own right. But as of now, iOS for sure.

    Most of my data is invested in MS services and all of those work great on iOS platform. They work on Android, but for the most part developers still go iOS first

    I would go to Windows Phone because "iOS, but its so boring.....and I'd like Android, but it's so laggy and fragmented". If you can figure out Windows Phone is not for you, but you can't figure out what to do next, I'd say you are just being disingenuous. Looks like trolling to me.

    Honestly I'd go back to WM6.5 on my HD2.

    The HD2 can triple boot WM6.5, Android, and WP7. You can have multiple boots of Android even- one you know is stable, one for testing new and buggy things, etc. Don't know how much I'd go into WP7 though. Afaik Dodonpachi Maximum is the only thing WP7 still has going for it...

    I have been test driving the HTC One the last few weeks and love how stable Android has become - and realized how Androidish Windows Phone has become. This is not to say that Windows Phone is bad in any way, shape or form, but Android has come a LONG ways since I left it for WP back in the day. Here's my short list of pros and cons for anyone that cares though...

    App Race - As much as MS has closed the gap on Apps, there is still a huge imbalance of them. Probably my biggest complaint is how much better the Android Apps for MS services are than their WP counterparts. That said, there is still a big gap for my personal uses:

    My bank has an App on Android, but not WP... SwagBucks (a search rewards program) not on WP...

    Email Handling - I still prefer MS's way of handling multiple accounts, but Android isn't that far off. I just wish that they could get the accounts back to separate icons.

    Launcher screen - fully customizable with Android - they even have launcher 8 pro or whatever it's called that turns your droid into a WP...

    Overall, the Android experience is great, but it isn't as sharp as Windows Phone. You don't have access to the same amount of information on one screen. With the 6up tiles on the Lumia 925, I am able to see every piece of information that I want in one peek. A quick swipe up brings up all my common Apps and games at the bottom of the screen. Android's layout doesn't allow for that much info on one screen - nor do the icons replace live tiles. Even the emulator launchers don't hold a candle to the real 'power' of WP.

    That said, I will not go iPhone for the simple reason of - I will not use iTunes on my computer. I hate that software with a passion and just won't go there.

    Just my two cents - and I highly recommend a look at the HTC One M8 (or M7) if you want the best Android Hardware...

    I've been using android before (and still do on my tablet), and I've never used an iPhone, so I think I'd go with android. They are cheaper than iPhones (yes, flagships cost the same as iPhone, but you can't get an iPhone for 250€)

    I'm a big fan of vertical layout. I always use 3rd party launchers on Android so I can get vertical app drawer. Multiple homescreens confuse me much more then long Start screen. And I've used android before, but I was still getting lost on 3 horizontal screens, I never knew if I had to go left or right to get to the app, so usually I'd just keep going one way until I found it (continuous loop, very time consuming)

    Android, but only to a Nexus or Moto device.

    I moved to iOS and in less than half a year quickly came back to WP.
