I am seriously considering Windows Phone. Microsoft is supposed to be responsible for athe OS updates, instead of the carriers. Also, Microsoft is dictating what specs the phones can have, so the Microsoft just uses the appropriate driver, rather than customising the OS for each of the various devices. Limiting the device specs is one of the things that keeps Apple from having many OS problems. I am also getting very sick and tired of the ads in everything associated with Google, and the way Google tracks everything to sell to third party marketers. Too bad, really, Android has a lot of potential.
I personally wouldn't recommend that somebody switch to a smartphone OS that has a 3% market share and dropping. And that 3% includes people that own old Windows Mobile phones and still haven't upgraded, an OS that isn't even really supported by MS anymore. Unless Windows 8 brings about a completely revolutionary change in the WP market share, I simply don't see the OS being long for this world.
