  • It’s funny you show a pic of Windows Phone… used my old Lumia 1020 the other night and marvelled at how good (and, better!) the keyboard was compared to my iPhone 8.

    And Cortana still works better than Siri.. just lots of small things that worked “better” than the iPhone.

  • Windows phone… You were meant to be the chosen one.

    I miss my Windows phone every day. I don’t miss the complete lack of support or the increasingly buggy “updates”.
