I've been using Windows Phones and Android hand-in-hand for a couple of years (iPhones? No thanks). And over time, instead of leaping over to Android, I ditched it last year. Sure, things look dark at times for Windows Phones and users, but soon our persistence will be rewarded greatly. I'm not so worried about the app gap (Yes, I have Snapchat. No, I don't use it). All I need is here with me. The experience is amazing if you only have a Windows Phone. Add a couple of other Windows-powered devices, and seeing how they work together effortlessly is awesome. Without realizing it, Microsoft was slowly becoming a huge part of my everyday life. I use my Windows 10 PC, a small Windows 10 tablet, my Windows 10 (preview) phone, Satechi's Cortana button in the car, the Xbox 360 but soon upgrading to Xbox One with Windows 10, and a Band 2 is on it's way. I have all this subconsciously, not planning to buy everything they have to offer or thinking about what Os it ran. I just enjoyed the experience. And I doubt any piece of this is getting cut off. That's what some people thought about Bing and Xbox a few years ago, but it's alive and well. Same with Windows 10 Mobile. It'll be alive and well in the future. Microsoft is heavily invested in all this, and we'll definitely get our fair share of this.
What a time to be alive!
