While my experience on my Note 5 has been much better than that of my SGS6 Active, I am still not a fan of the Android OS. It is nice to have a phone with so many apps available... but the thing with Windows Phone was that you didn't need 100 little apps to make the phone functional. The thing just worked out of the box; and worked very well. And when an app was not available, the company typically had a mobile-sensitive website available to use, so it was rarely an issue.
That said, now that I have a work provided phone I am not keeping my own personal cell (moved my # to Google Voice which is working out well), so I am sitting this gen of Windows hardware out. But it still looks like they have a great product, and at a good price! MS done good on this one!
But, I don't see me ever using this dock in a desktop environment... I mean, what exactly would be the point? I own a very nice desktop, and that is not going to change any time soon. The phone has WiDi and BT functionality... so why do we need the dock in the first place? Why can't we just shoot the video out WiDi and BT to our peripherals? I would love to have this communicate directly to a TV, or projector rather than to a monitor. Even better, I would love to have this project to a dumb terminal 'laptop' style device! Something still portable, but good for productivity when I need a full keyboard, mouse and 13-15" display. These options seem much more practical than running a full desktop style setup.
Still, very interesting read, and so very glad to hear that it is working as advertised! Maybe when I eventually have my own phone again there will be a good Windows option to come back to!
