    I say no. WP8 still has a way to go till I would ditch iOS or Android for it.

    It's only out of boredom I suppose. I've been with Apple since the 3G getting every iPhone each year.

    The prospects of the 5S looking exactly like the 5 made me think of trying something else.

    For such a low price the Ativ S is a lot of phone. Still...

    I wonder if I'd just regret it? :eek:

    Just a suggestion...

    You might want to make it a practice to read a few of the posts preceding yours...the "dare you" thing has been done...and overdone already.:D ;)

    I knew if we dared, double dared, etc. it would get you!

    I must say that your decision indicates that you are a total wild man...living out on the dangerous and ragged edge!:cool::eek:

    I hope you enjoy whatever phone you choose!:D

    Why not a cheaper Lumia 520/620 to test the WP8 waters? :D

    No. To much of a compromise.

    With te Ativ S I can get it all out of my system.

    Larger screen.

    720P screen.

    AMOLED.

    Different OS.

    Plastic made to look like metal.

    It's all there in an attractively priced package.

    Finger still hovering...

    Was it WP8 or the phone itself or both? If both which one was the deciding factor?

    It was WP8. The phone also had a terrible power button which was really flush and hard to use but it was WP8. I had most of my apps or alternatives so it wasn't really that but I just felt limited in what the OS can do. Small things like how to switch to silent and vibrate and hoe there's no system wide rotation lock annoyed me too much.

    Do it!

    Don't be a wussy!

    Chicken...chicken...

    You'll feel soooo good when it's done.

    Or, possibly, you'll regret it for the rest of your natural life!
