I'm a Windows Phone fan and will be to the end and even beyond, but I recently bought an LG V30+ to accompany my 640LTE so I can have a better-supported platform to jump on when I need it.
Note: I own an iPod Touch 5th Gen and prior to my new phone, an Android tablet and I like them both for their own reasons. My Windows loyalty is not exclusive of other ecosystems.
Seamless integration was and will always be the source of my love for the Windows ecosystem - something that may be familiar to Apple fans as well.
One account and bam. Done. No more logins no more having to set settings everywhere. Open up Word, pull up doc from internal, external, OneDrive. Open up OneNote, edit, pick up later on my PC.
My experience with Android (earlier on anyways) was janky and a bit piecemeal. iCloud was better within the Apple system.
And music and video management?
A friendlier system than Apple and its hook-in requirement with iTunes (in my opinion) - especially since WMA support was a no-go. Android was friendlier, too.
Since I'm an audio and visual junkie and one who likes to manage their own personal content in general without using apps, this weighed and still weighs heavily in my opinions and decisions.
Since I had no portable DAC, I ripped 'lossless' WMA and both my PC and phone could and can play it without fuss. If I want to add music or videos or any other content on a fly, just pop in my USB and transfer to appropriate folders. No iTunes needed.
The no-fuss save-content-to-expandable-external function beat both iOS and Android hands down for this exact reason.
Tell Windows Phone you want to save all content to SD and bam. Plug in and transfer all personal content including music, videos, downloads, docs on both internal and external.
Now couple this with everything else and that's why I am a Windows Phone and Windows ecosystem fan. It's not perfect at all, but what's important to me is what I love and so it works for me.
I love that system and I still have hope. But seeing as how expanding my ecosystem experience can only be a good thing, I now also own the LG V30+.
Because life is also good with a fantastic smartphone device coupled with official DAC support and on a more 'open' ecosystem.
My Windows Phone lives and long live all my live tiles that make up the beauty of my home screen.
