For you it might not be a problem switching to the Windows ecosystem. Your wife on the other hand may have some issues depending on what apps she needs. If a good camera is imperative look no further than the Lumia 950. It's only slightly larger than your current 6S and are on sale for $250 at the Microsoft Store. Let us know what she requires and we can go from there.Hello,
Currently in the situation that I'm leaving the apple eco system. This basically started last year when I bought myself the first windows laptop ever. Before used mac's. Since I cannot justify the costs anymore. 2 young kids. Prefer to give them so now and then a box of Lego.
Little bit situation what we do:
We both (wife and me) are using an iPhone 6S. And using apple music on the device. And iCloud.
On the both phone's we are using 1 general account for the iCloud photo's / purchasese.
Means when I take an picture, it shows up in the camera roll with my wife, and vice versa.
The biggest problem we have is that when we delete an photo on the iPhones this picture is deleted from our iCloud photo library. Our kids are growing, and they have fast fingers. So we noticed that we on regular base have to view if there are photo's deleted.
Since past summer I tried to use OneDrive on my iPhone. And must say, that works pretty well.
Have disabled iCloud photo's on my device. Good part is that the photos deleted on the device are still kept at OneDrive. That is how we like it.
My wife really like her iPhone. She is using plenty apps. For me, I'm not using really much apps. Basically what is build in. In the past I had for work an nokia lumia 920. And really liked that windows on an phone.
Currently thinking to switch completely to windows. Last step for me would be an windows phone.
Important for me is that the camera is great. My wife and me are taking lot of photo's and videos.
For example I was thinking to get an Lumia 950. It is not that expensive anymore.
What do we use from Microsoft at the moment:
Since some months we are using Office 365. And that is working pretty good.
Our documents are centrally stored.
OneDrive for photo's. Only my wife need to swap. Will happen as soon we are ready for the switch to Microsoft completely.
Extra payed iCloud storage, 50 gb.
I understand that apple music is no go on windows phone. So most likely we need to switch to Spotify. As far I understand there is an windows phone app.
Currently using Spotify (free) on the PS4. That switch is not that big.
Just want to know if anybody see some issues coming for me / us if I make the swap to an windows phone. Things we should pay attention to. Any help / suggestions are very welcome.
I consider myself user. And not technical knowledge. It must work out of the box basically.
Was always an blackberry lover. For work I got blackberry devices. Since iCloud that is basically no go. Because we want an complete eco system / Cloud functionality.
Android, is not my thing to be honest. Can't really describe why, but it is not my thing.
Thanks for reading and helping out.
I'm finding the dual SIM particularly interesting. I've been able to lower my monthly bill by taking advantage of a "family" plan with each line having separate data. Then switching which SIM uses data when the other nears its limit. So for me the experience has been great.
What an interesting idea!! Can anyone else share how they take advantage of the duel sims?
(moderator, perhaps this should start a new thread?)
btw there is no stock available (lumia 950) at the microsoft store here in the Netherlands. Hopefully they come soon, since they are cheaper as in an retail store here.
Do you still recommend it after the time that has passed since you posted?And I got one from another store. Pretty cheap to around 300 euro (Netherlands).
It is an amazing experience compared to the iPhone 6s. Really like it. Especially the camera button. Very handy.
Do u physucally have to change the sim card or can u just do it.in settings?
LOL - I have used Android since Eclair and still have a SGS6. (My son *had* a Note 7 but now has a SGS7.) It just always seems like it is blurry and the colors don't stand out.I understand how people get all excited about Android, with her fancy apps and zillions of different phones, but after a while I get bored of her.
