Well, as someone who has an itoy 3, two android tablets (because I broke one), and two windows tablets, I use:

itoy:
- Not at all, I dumped it on the missus, who uses it exclusively for looking at websites about men's bums.

Android:
- Way better. Good for comms stuff and reading.
- With a decent file manager, it almost becomes usable as a computer, but the user interface makes it difficult to do serious stuff with it.

windows:
- The real thing. I use them for anything I'd do with a desktop or laptop -- In Desktop Mode. UWP mode reduces their usefulness closer to that of Android (if you don't count using the UWP start page or godawful "apps" list abomination to open desktop apps).


But that's me.

If your app is aimed at less techy, more casual users, UWP is probably OK.

Find a discussion group, or whatever, that has your target consumers, and ask them what they like -- a fair number of people on CP will say the same as me.

If it were me asking users, I'd also ask things like "What do you like buttons to look like?" (Although I'd be tempted to phrase it "Do you enjoy hunting for buttons, and tapping everywhere to see if there are buttons, or do you stupidly prefer to be able to see what you're looking at, you old fogey who doesn't understand the way of the future?"
I wanna be a eunuchs developer! Pass me a bread knife!
