Re: Is it worth going for another Windows Phone or its dead?
MOST DEFINITELY - exactly three weeks ago from today I purchased what seemed to be the last available Alcatel Idol 4S Windows Phone in NYC at the T-Mobile Flagship Store in Times Square, aside from leaving Cricket Wireless and joining T-Mobile. I first anxiously jumped onto the platform at the debut of the Lumia 920 at AT&T (which I still sorely miss
....the phone of course, not the carrier) and left when I switched to Sprint and realized how horrible the Samsung Windows phone was at the time, then switching back to Android with the Nexus 5 which I finally just retired before going on a feverish hunt at several NYC T-Mobile shops and being fortunate enough to pickup the last one at the flagship store. And if I could've gotten my hands on a fresh Lumia 950 XL with warranty, I would have...
I have to say, aside from obvious improvements the OS needs, it's been a breath of fresh air for the past few weeks. Everything I missed about Windows Phone I came right back into, and honestly I'm doing pretty good not missing out on much after dumping once again our Android counterpart. Yes, there are things that can be better, but I am also, and have been for quite some time now, a Microsoft services guy all-around (Live personal email, MS work email, OneNote for notating, reading, saving EVERYTHING that crosses my path on the web, social media, and apps, endless Office functions both for work and personal) so my journey is way different than for the people out there who bash Windows Mobile for not being better at best, and at worst not being able to compete with iOS/Android. For the most part, everything works the way it should but I would never be foolish enough to act like there isn't room for improvement, just as in any platform or service.
I'm really looking forward to what Microsoft has in store for us in this space of tech, and will continue to support and utilize their offerings both personally and professionally! :smile:
