Windows Phone 8.1 |OT| Update 1

Did the same on Friday.

I'm quite happy with the Note 8, it's a great phone. Android has also come a very long way in the last few years and with the Microsoft launcher it's quite nice to use. I'd still come back in a heartbeat if the opportunity presented itself, which it won't.

That foldable Surface might come next year. Don't lose hope.
 
If it really has a holographic display as rumoured, I can't see it happening before 2019.

Of course, by that time progressive web apps might have taken off and it could be a viable option.
 
Resetting my 950 for my dad (currently on my old 930) - wow the bezels seem huge and screen small (coming from Note 8).

Oh the Iris sensor on the Note 8 is mint. I use it so much more than the finger print sensor (that may be conditioning from the 950 though).
 
Went for a Nokia 8 as it is only £400 in the UK at the moment. Zune HD, surface 2 and windows phone. Done with Microsoft. A surface phone wouldn't change anything at this point.

Anyway a few things that are annoying me about android so far.
- Why doesnt android read aloud incoming text messages over bluetooth in my car?
- Why no forward/back swipe in Chrome?
- Why do I need to press confirm when entering my pin, one extra needless press.
- Why does Facebook not contact sync pictures?

Other than the above I'm liking the much quicker and more up to apps and the ability to customise everything. Already moved chromes url bar to the bottom for example.

Hold on, friend! I'd love to share with you some swell news about the Windows 8 Metro UI! Wait, where are you going?
It was funny seeing a Windows Phone is the last episode of Brooklyn Nine Nine. Not sure why they're still doing product placement. Although only the screen/UI was shown, not the device name.
