Was a Windows 10 Mobile phone ever a good choice for you? Find out why I enjoyed my Windows Phone—and why I’m sad to see it go. Are we now stuck with iOS and Android?

Introduction to Windows 10 Mobile

Apple’s iPhones and the endless selection of Android phones first come to mind when you think of the word “smartphone.” In addition to this, you may have also heard of Windows 10 mobile—the OS for Microsoft’s Lumia smartphones.

Indeed, Microsoft has had a jolly old time in regard to mobile devices—in past years.

With the introduction and widespread usage of Android and iOS, though, Microsoft and brands such as Nokia suffered; from Windows Phone 7, 8, and 8.1, to Windows 10 mobile, they never quite obtained a significant market share.

Elaborating a bit more on Windows 10 mobile—that seemed to be another attempt to claw back your interest. Windows 10 mobile, after all, was designed for an ultimate cross-device experience.

Furthermore, with the Universal Windows Platform, Microsoft really wanted to appeal to developers and consumers alike: the prospect of a single application that can run on multiple Windows platforms, with no problems?

I must say, that idea appealed to me, thus I dabbled in UWP app development for a while.

What’s more, when I went to buy myself I new phone, I looked at Windows 10 Mobile. But why would I do this?

In this article, I’ll be outlining several reasons that pulled me into the Windows 10 mobile platform.

By the way, I’m using the Microsoft Lumia 640 (upgraded to Windows 10 mobile).
