    Windows 8&10

    I was surprised to see Windows 10's Phone Companion allows iPhones and someone said it seemed to work well. I won't be using it on my iPhone, but some brave souls might.

    Win 10

    Although I'm not an Apple MAC fan, I have an iPhone6 and like it. I have one app that I wanted and it is only offered on iPhone. I had a Samsung Android it was constantly failing and having to take the battery out to reset it. It had lots of crapware apps pre-installed and I couldn't remove them. My Son and his wife both had Samsungs (different models that I had) and they had the same problem with them hanging up and having to remove the batteries to reset. They now have iPhones too.

    Having had a large number of Android devices over the last 10+ years, I have not had those kinds of problems. Sure, I've had the occasional lockup that required a battery to be taken out (at most once per year), but I've had similar problems with iPhones, iPads, and even traditional flip phones and what not. It's a computer, it's going to crash sometime... All of them do, in one way or another.

    There's a phenomena I have noticed, over the years... if someone doesn't like a piece of technology, they notice and remember problems they have (and sometimes remember more problems than they actually had), but if they like a piece of technology, they ignore and forget about any problems they've had. It doesn't matter if this is Windows, Apple, Android, PC's, Phones, Tablets... it seems pretty prevalent.

    I've never had that problem with my Samsung Galaxy S III. On occasion I have had to restart the phone to get my 4G working again.

    Windows 10 10586

    The iphone 6 taking 72% of ENTERPRISE activations this past year is just a random stat. android dominates the space with about 80% or so globally, ios is the rest and Windows Phone is a nibble. So basically, the iphone was deployed out more than android and Windows Phone this past year in the enterprise space. Why that is, one can only wonder. My guess is apps. ios doesn't really have a thing called Mobile Device Management that android has and Windows Phone as of now kind of has. Security wise, ios isn't that solid.

    We'll see in the coming years how that'll change with Windows Phone 10. A recent Citrix study reported that almost half of all IT admins that responded had an interest in deploying Windows 10 for tablets and smartphones. If you were an IT admin in an enterprise and had a client version of Windows that runs on literally everything and can be managed similarly, would you choose that or ios or android? I'd go Windows Phone for sure, apps aren't a problem anymore since corporate apps if on ios or android can be easily ported to Windows, why not?

    Good to see you, Cokie. Where have you been?

    Agree with you 100%, but it continues as Androids are still cheap phones and iPhones are overrated pieces of flaunting costume jewelry. I feel MS needs to get in the middle with pricing, which they pretty much have. BYOD and Continuum is really MS's ace in the whole. 10 platform across all devices is dead on IMO.

    The battery in my phone cannot be removed and this has never been a problem for me. I actually do have the external USB charger, but I never use it - the phone lasts more than 2 days and there are plenty of outlets around, including computers. Sure, I am rarely in the wilderness, but I doubt there will be any cell service anyways .

    The real problem with the non-removable battery is that the battery lifetime now limits the phone lifetime. However, these days I change the phones every two years and their lifetime is actually longer, so that's not a problem as well.

    Sorry for being late to the party! - Windows 10 Forums

    They do, the problem I can see being a hurdle in general with Windows Phone 10 adoption in the enterprise is if it doesn't have the Mobile Device Management Windows Mobile 6 had. I'm not too concerned about this, since when currently on Windows Phone 8, you can connect to a corporate VPN and that device turns into a business oriented device than something to kill the time. The thing I'd like to see is the platform being able to quickly and easily log out of accounts without a hard reset. That's the detriment here that android excels in at the moment where android KitKat can support multiple user logons and sign outs without a hard reset or restart fairly easily (that doesn't go to say the platform is best to use however). A lot of handheld devices you see used in stores are actually still Windows Mobile 6 devices that haven't been upgraded.

    If Windows Phone 10 has improved MDM support like that, with devices geared for the enterprise (which Microsoft has stated they're working on) or even the rumored Lumia 950 and 950XL that support Continuum, there's a good shot Windows 10 Mobile will permeate back into the enterprise space as it did before. Combine that with a corporate infrastructure being ran by Windows 10, life is made easier.
