    I've been on Windows Phone for a little more than 2 months. I LOVE the OS. But it has so many things that have been nagging me. Today I pulled the trigger and picked up the Note 4. I'll have 30 days to try it to return it if I don't like it... I'm tired of Android, but when I picked a WP I thought, quite literally: I just want a phone that works for calling, messaging, and pictures. I found myself really happy with call quality, and taking pictures. Pictures on my 930 and 1520 are FANTASTIC! But messaging for me is a big one. I mostly use Line messenger, and it's REALLY far behind in terms of updates. I have been chatting a lot with their developers, and it's really frustrating. Also the notifications don't clear out for most apps after checking them if they have multiple tags. The fact that it doesn't keep apps in memory is also quite bothersome. I can't freely use my phone for those three things as I'd like. I can't share video over messaging systems either! I don't know... I LOVE SO MUCH live tiles, the OS, how fluid it is in general... But the app situation (hey, NOT the app gap), and how the OS treats applications (load times, background tasks, backups, keeping it active in memory even if they're paused) is frustrating.

    I'll keep both phones for a while... Let's see!!! I'm sorry to leave so soon, but hopefully I'll be back. Goodbye Nokia 1520, you'll be resting my drawer for a few days while I decide your fate!

    You don't have to give up Windows Phone if you try another type of device. I swap Sim cards into different phones constantly. If a great new app or game comes out for iOS, I'll simply use my iPhone for a while to try it out. Phones are cool, why limit yourself into using only one religiously?

    For continuity reasons. I like to keep backups of conversations and such. For example, with Whatsapp on Windows Phone and Android (I have no clue about iOS) you can backup your conversations and then when you change devices, you keep where you left off. You can't carry the backup file between OSs but YES between phones (from WP to WP, or from Android to Android). This is true with most software that allows backups, in fact.
