Oh, I loved you so, Windows Phone. I was certain we’d be happy together forever.
To be fair, there were minor issues from the start, but we either minimized or worked through them together, as young couples should. However, when we began to have serious problems, I consistently felt more committed to the relationship than you did. You know, sometimes I’m going to pull more than my half, and sometimes you’re going to pull more than your half. But if I’m pulling 65-70% all the time, that’s not sustainable.
It’s over. I’m sorry.
The final straw was Christy getting me excited about trying to give Instagram another go, only to discover that there isn’t a single decent Instagram client on Windows Phone. If all of the features worked in any one of them, I could have made do. Alas, no. The best one I tried wouldn’t reliably repost to Twitter.
Couple that with the fact that my phone hasn’t been able to properly handle my local 60GB music library in over a year, and I’m done.
The Instagram client on my Fire phone works fine, and I’m excited about having Amazon Prime music back again. I don’t see the Fire and me together long-term, but I’ll pal around with her for right now.
No problem with that, as long as I’m being honest with her.
