Android - Galaxy Nexus. Great smartphone, lousy phone. Call issues drove me over the top. Thought I'd give a new user experience a try, as the innovation curve on iOS and Android has rapidly flattened (improving speed and mirroring one another's features seems to be what they're up to these days). Microsoft jumped in the deep end on this, so I figure I'll give them a shot...

I tried Android for several years but the OS was too buggy from device to device and updates sometimes made it worse. My favorite was BlackBerry but with the new BB10 coming in February and the announcement that the trackpad and BB keys were gone I just figured it was time to find a new platform. I had the Trophy but the font size was way too small for me.

Count me as a write-in vote for WebOS, a great platform which I'd have been happy to stay with if HP hadn't given up on it. I tried a Droid 4 and thought Android was like a disorganized house -- everything was there somewhere but it didn't hang together very well. So far so good with WP8 and an 822.

Came from the original HTC Incredible, jailbroke for the last year, most recently running JB ... WAY TOO MUCH WORK to keep the phone running. Very happy so far with WP8 on my Lumia 822. Looking for a case ... hope some show up soon, before i drop it.

I can't vote - I used Windows Mobile for... I don't remember for sure, but thinking it must have been 4-5 years? Then I got Windows Phone (Sprint Arrive) on the day it launched (3/23/11) after giving up on Verizon, but ported back because Sprint's coverage was horrible. Then I went to ATT after again giving up on Verizon and got a Samsung Focus, but alas, ATT isn't good here, either. I put up with it for a couple weeks, hoping I could learn to deal with it, and then Verizon made their announcement on 5/19/2011, and I had my Trophy on 5/26/2011, after more than six months of aggravation waiting on Verizon!

Like I said above, I'm coming from an all Microsoft background, and given that, I'm pleased to see so many coming from Android and Apple who are liking the Windows Phone. Not to start any "ours is better than yours" debates, I believe that we need competition to foster innovation - I just want to say I'm happy to see people from the other sides enjoying what I've enjoyed.
