I've tried all the major phone software platforms over the years; IOS, Android, Blackberry and now W10 on my new Lumia 550. I'd put W10 and IOS on par. They are both easy and intuitive to use straight out of the box and you quickly get used to them. My experience with Android was poor. I found it clunky and difficult; it felt like you had to fight with it to make it work.
Why did I buy the Lumia 550? I just couldn't face spending another £600 on a new iPhone but needed something that felt and looked modern and understated and would integrate well with my Surface 3 Pro. It does all that and for £75 it's a bargain. The range of Apps is growing quickly and I have found everything that I had on my iPhone. Microsoft should sell these by the bucket, particularly as standard business phones. At this price point it will allow almost every employee to stay seamlessly integrated with corporate systems on the move. They may have more of a challenge with the "chav, selfy, mall rat, Facebook" market that prefers blingy colours and cosmetics. There are loads of awful Android phones that will probably be more appealing to that crowd.

Windows is the best ever OS in Mobiles. No need of having antivirus.No need to free RAM every half an hour. Restarts phone in only 6 seconds. This is what we call the best OS for phone. Windows 10 and 8.1 the best ever
