As far as 'smart phones' go, I've only ever had 2 Windows phones over the last decade. A few weeks ago, the last one took a tumble and spider-webbed the screen. While it still worked, I decided it was time for a new one. I settled on a nice android phone (LG G7) yesterday. The pics and music were all on the microSD so no problems there, but the contacts were another story...I had to export from outlook (which was synched to the WP) and import into the gmail account and voila!
It will be nice to do mobile banking again...my bank discontinued support for WP a few years ago. Also, through the last decade, my wife and I have accumulated a variety of iot devices that never had a WP app. I can finally control the temperature of my coffee mug for instance!
WP 5.1 for DOS rules; see markup by pressing F11. Pressing F5 to save.
WP 5.1 was the same era as DBaseIV, which was my first real programming experience. Lotus 1-2-3 was the thing of the day. In those days, Windows already had a color-scheme for people who can't see as good. Windows was ahead of its time with its accessability features.
Things and times have changed. Most websites can't provide what Windows did 20 years ago. Some unnamed companies will go to court to having not provide an alt-text for images

I've got a pair? of QCs (wired) and ready to try out when I can find enough time. I did plug it up to the Bose bookshelf system this morning after seeing this post (the Hi-Fi Quad DAC was enabled by default) and it sounded really good even at low volume but hard to tell if it was much better than what I had before...maybe the headphones will reveal the audio superiority of the new phone! Looking forward to it!
It's an ESS Sabre DAC. (You find big brother in Mark Levinson)
Personally I find the sound quality from the Bose headsets that I've tested to be a bit underwhelming. (Noise cancellation is great though)
Bowers & Wilkins P7 have really great sound, but are not very comfortable.
I bought a couple of Sennheiser Momentum Wireless instead, that I use with the wires. They're not best at anything, but they are a great compromise.
Interestingly enough, they sound better with noise cancellation than without.
And ironically they add a bit of white noise that you can hear when you are in a quiet room.
