>Your description of iOS is faulty: It is NOT a hefty premium for a lifestyle accessory, it is the fastest platform out there, period, so "deserves" a premium. Not to say that it is leaky, just like WP and Android.
>There is no secure phone OS anymore, since BB10 packed-in - it seems like you all want to share all your details with corps, faire enough. Thanks, I do not and will not have a choice, once my BB10 device dies ...
>WP will not survive 2017, 100% sure, I doubt it will be around in January 2017. I hereby declare that I will donate 50 euro to FSF if Windows Phone survives January 2017, and 100 if it survives December 2017. The donations will be made in the name of the RegisterComment@rds ... please do remind me, should I forget (I won't)!
>PS: "Survives" meaning Microsoft has not announced it will stop development on the platform.
>PPS: Can the register do something, here, for visibility ?
As for the cretins on here who claim windows 10 is "faster" than XP, on my company laptop, Windows 10 is slower than Windows 8.1, it keeps "hanging", upgraded yesterday, already had to create a folder (c:\windows\system32\config\systemprofile\Desktop) to get rid of an error message, AND, I already had to reboot, because the "start menu" would not come up.
Ohhh, and, slow as in, I can type three/four words on the keyboard before they are displayed in my browser, with 4 tabs open and nothing else running, except notepad and taskmanager.
This is a Core i5 4200, 16Gb RAM, and SSD - by no means a powerhouse, but "should" allow me to do basic browsing FFS ... with Windows 10, that is not enough ... YMMV.
