  1. I realize iOS and iPhones dominate, but I wish MSFT wouldn’t forget the Windows Phone users. They are last now to get the updates and new features. I no longer feel loyal to using a Windows Phone anymore and am thinking of switching to the OnePlus One phone. I’ve heard a lot of great reviews on it.

    In my opinion, Windows Phone would be a great buy considering Windows 10 update round the corner.
