    That's dead. You may want to check out Sailfish OS while Jolla is around ;)
    Maybe he likes MeeGo. Maybe it suits his needs just fine.

    Yes except it's very difficult to get since it's only available in one phone that is long discontinued and was never widely released. That's why I suggested Sailfish which IS MeeGo v.2.0 with the exception that it's still supported by a company (Jolla) and is easier to get (actually, you'll apparently be able to install it in Android devices) ;)

    I've actually just come back to Windows Phone from BlackBerry. I plan on trying it for at least 30 days. I'm already loving the native app selection and quality much more than BB10's.

    I had 4+ Android phones. All of them got laggy over time. Only way to fix was to do a factory reset then again over time it would get laggy then I did the factory reset. It was a endless cycle. My last Android phone was the Samsung Note.

    Microsoft is actually making it comfortable for me to move onto iOS or Android with all their superior software updates and OneDrive / Office integration.

    I can't send files with Skype and that just explains where WP is at. WP has all the essential apps but they are still behind in 3rd party hardware support. It took them from WP7-WP8.1 to add what, Cortana, notification center and some minor things that should've been out of the box.

    Apple has added quite a lot of features in 1 year (iOS7 to iOS8) and they could ensure I get all the updated hardware.

    Been with WP since WP7 days and I still love the OS but it could be time. WP8.1 is fast but support is just way too slow.

    I'd go back to BlackBerry or iOS.

    I haven't lusted after an Android device in some time. I work in cellphone support and the majority of my calls are Samsung devices that won't charge properly, LG G2 with partially dad touch digitizers, and HTC devices t that have SIM issues.

    Each of those manufacture's WP devices work great. Except for LG, I haven't seen their WP work yet.

    If i could only do one: iOs

    Out of the three of them Microsoft have the best track record for security.

    I'm running devices on two OS already, iOS and WP. So "leaving" WP would just mean dropping WP.

    I wouldn't even touch Android with your bargepole, let alone mine...

    If I had to leave today......I would hate it.

    Come September or November when the 5.5" iPhones come out,entirely different story.

    The Note 4 looks nice,but the new UI of Google's looks ugly from what I have seen recently.

    When I switch,and I will switch those 2 phones will be what I wind up with.

    Both will eventually get jail broken or rooted depending upon which I have after a few months so that there will be themes available for them.

    Both need to be customized imho,the iPhone to open it up more,and the Android to remove any carrier bloat.

    What concerns me is the direction Google is going with its UI..and getting passed any e-fuses they have installed with Knox. Apples iPhone you just have to wait until the jailbreak is available for download. My understanding is most all store apps work with it if already on it.

    Either way this fall will be interesting to say the least for me.

    Why.....I just don't have enough faith in Microsoft to fix WP current issues and will always having to wait for a update

    I don't HAVE to leave but I like trying off-the-beaten-path devices. It's part of the reason for having an ATIV S Neo, besides the fact that it's a wonderful phone with very little love shown for it. Anywho, I decided to go slummin' today and picked up one of those cheap BLU Android phones. I know it may only last a couple of months due to the unrivaled build quality of this latest Chinese creation. Be that as it may, it's actually quite good. There is zero lag and everything is snappy. Kinetic scrolling is fluid and I've yet to notice any hiccups. You have to wonder if OEM skins have anything to do with the documented issues on Android. Right now I feel like Mr. Phelps waiting for this phone to self-destruct in 5 seconds but so far it's a good showing for Vanilla Android. BTW for you youngsters out there, the preceding sentence was a reference to the original Mission: Impossible.

    Best track record? perhaps you don't realise that MS were the first ones to give access to the gov, here are the dates from the slides in the TED talk by Snowden:

    Microsoft: September 2007
    Google: Jan 2009
    Apple: Oct 2012

    I don't think this falls into the realm of what is usually considered "security". If this is your standard, then we might as well forget about security entirely, because nothing is secure if the laws in a country allow the government to access whatever they want. This isn't really MS' fault. Nor is it Google's or Apple's fault. They all caved. These are legal matters, not really issues related to IT security in the traditional sense.

    MS may or may not have been first. But I don't think that matters. The first company to cave will have been the first company who had NSA lawyers at their front door.

    If you are going to site this as a reason for MS products/services not being secure, you'd also have to site MS moving some of their data centres over to Europe as a reason for them becoming very secure, as that puts all the data in those datacentres beyond the U.S. government's reach. I'm not aware of either Google or Apple going to those lengths. But like I said, I don't think either is really related to security in the traditional sense.

    I do think Neo158's point stands though. At least in the traditional sense, security and privacy are both areas where MS excels in comparison to the competition, at least so far.

    after buying a lumia 720,820,nexus 5,nexus 7 and recently a blackberry z10
    id say BB10 and WP8.1 have got what i wanted and needed just right
    its user friendly and secure,simple yet powerful
    dont need high hardware specs to run(BB10 though needs 1.5-2gb minimum but other than that its fine and justified in the way it handles multitasking)
    android has alot of pros but for the end user its a super saturated complicated os(atleast in my honest opinion,everyone is entitled to their opinions about this :) )
    android may have more flexibility but its a drawback due to poor security etc compared to wp,ios and BB10
    BB10 really has me impressed this time,its even smoother than my nexus devices,only BB has a poor marketing strategy and BBOS 6-7.1 hardware issues caused a loss of trust but if it was released earlier it could have proved a huge challenge for google and maybe even nokia
    ios is great on the ipad but the iphone has never impressed me much
    in tablets yes,ipad is king followed by windows tablets(for now)
    the next few years are gonna be interesting

    I forgot to add that I am also interested in the OPO ( One Plus One). A high end, top specs phone 4G lte with 64gb for $349 or 399 is insane!
