I might be a Microsoft blogger, but like many other people around the world, an iPhone is my go-to mobile device. Sure, I do own a Galaxy S8 as a “side phone” for testing apps and other Microsoft products, but after Build 2018, I’ve been thinking a bit in retrospect. Is Apple’s walled garden causing me (and maybe other Windows 10 users) to consider choosing Android over iPhone, or ditching iPhone completely?

Factoid: I actually was once an avid Android user, but I switched to iPhone last year after a disaster involving my phone deleting all my photos from the May 2 Microsoft EDU event. There’s an explainer at the bottom of the post for more on that.


I really think this article is true if Microsoft would have started doing this 10 years ago they may have captured a large mobile user base on Android.
