This happened not too long after I posted my last iPhone update, but I forgot to blog it until now.
I made the decision to get rid of the iPhone. There were a few things I liked about it, but overall, I found the user experience for core behavior and integration was just nowhere near the level of excellence provided by Windows Phone. Yes, I could have probably solved the problems I found by purchasing additional apps – I noticed that for the most part, the better apps are not the free ones – but it wouldn’t have solved the larger problems of each piece being just a piece, not part of a larger hole.
So, I ditched it and replaced the necessary functionality with a 4G access point. I still have the tethering when necessary but now it’s not driving down my phone battery, I only have one device to handle – one that I like – and I still don’t need to pass out my personal cell number, by simply giving my customers the option to call my main Lync number and forward the call to my cell.
So it was interesting, but ultimately…iPhones aren’t for me.
