“Why I switched from Android to Windows Phone” 

Here’s an interesting article about Sydney Myers from Phonedog. She explains why she left Android for Windows Phone 7 :

I understand that with Android, the customization options are endless. I realized, though, that the only reason I spend hours customizing the look of my device and trying out different launchers is because I don’t like the way it looks. It’s a simple concept, I know, but I missed the point for a while. If I don’t like the way Android looks, why am I still using it?


In several ways, at least in my opinion, Windows Phone is better than Android. In some ways, it’s just as good. In a few ways, Android is better. I do miss multi-tasking, but that’s no big problem because it’s coming to Windows Phone this fall. All in all, I’m happy with my Windows Phone device. I have 14 days to decide if I want to keep it or not so you may come back in a few weeks and see an article entitled “Why I switched back to Android”. Honestly, I really hope I like Windows Phone because I just don’t want to go back to Android and my only other option is BlackBerry at the moment. (The carrier I chose does not yet have the iPhone or a webOS device.) We’ll see.

Definitly what I did with my Android devices (HTC Desire HD, Samsung Galaxy Tab, HTC Sensation…), and she’s right : whatever the skin you use it all looks the same and I was never satisfied of it.
