I'm glad I switched OS and phone for something more stable and durable

@FireEmblem_Man: 'Twas a wise decision, my friend. Those happy with the feature phones of old will likely be satisfied by android and the devices upon which android chugs along. The power users will likely find more solace in something more a long the lines of the enterprise friendly iOS or Windows Phone.

Yeah, I realize that Google doesn't really push their OEM's to update their low to mid-range phones, and then drop support to old flagships for new ones. It's hard for a Galaxy S IV user to have a stable OS when support goes to the S V instead. That's the reason why I switched, when MS cares for their low end and entry phones with optimizing their OS to run on 512 MB and a duo-core. Surprisingly WP 8.1 is very lite, so it fits better with them, only issue with those low end phones is that some apps won't work on them as games and photo/video editing software requires at least 1 GB of RAM, and then later would add low end support.
