Windows is definitely a viable option. However went to Android because I can't afford $850 after tax for phone.
I was hoping to get more use out of my Lumia 920, but it finally gave up the ghost last Thursday (the crack spread) and I was forced to get a LG G4. I don't like Android, but the price was right ($0 down). Like others on this board, I'd love a Lumia 950 XL, but without carrier support and a monthly payment plan it basically doesn't exist to me.
My Lumia 920 is still running, but very slowly after the last update.
I got the Nexus 6P with Marshmallow and I've got to say that I'm impressed. I'm sure using stock Android helps with that and not having to deal with extra OEM garbage on the device. I miss windows phone, but the 6P was available on subsidy to me for $100 almost a month ago. I'm going to save my money over the next two years and see where windows phone is at that point or even still in existance. Happy for everyone who was able to get a 950 or 950XL!
LG G4 got good reviews and you can't go wrong with $0 down.
I'm in the same situation. Was really hoping for a carrier subsidy to be able to afford it. I know better now though. going to save money for my next phone so I can take it anywhere if I'm not happy with my current provider after 2 years.
Good luck with the G4!
That is terrible. I also may move away from Rogers for this reason. All of us use windows phone and we don't want to switch to something else. Specially for the elderly in our family who have learned the OS and don't like to re-learn something else. They find windows very user friendly and simple. I think at least ONE option should be availble to customers. This is a terrible decision, Rogers is NOT a money-bleeding discount brand and expecting at least one phone from each of the ecosystems is not out of line by any means. Please bring this matter to your buyer team!
Hope you are correct. Have been using Windows Phone since the start (Samsung Focus then Lumia 1020) and would love to keep using it. Don't really want to change carriers either.
