Bill Gates has finally switched to an Android phone

Bill Gates has finally switched to an Android phone

"Why would we use Windows Mobile if everything good about it is already found in other ecosystems, while also enduring an atrocious app gap?" they wondered. It could also be that Gates is keenly aware that owning an iPhone might be somewhat damaging to Microsoft in this era of social media-perception is everything these days. In such a moment of crisis, the last thing Microsoft's executives would've wanted to hear was that company's founder and ex-CEO, Bill Gates uses Android.

That Gates would switch to Android isn't an unusual move for people who rely heavily on Microsoft software, many of whom enjoy greater freedom to customize it. Honestly, personally, I wasn't shocked at all.

The Android vs iOS battle has been raging for a decade.

When asked by Fox New Sunday's Chris Wallace what he thought of the new iPhone, Gates avoids answering the question but says, "I actually recently did switch to an Android phone with a lot of Microsoft software". Could it be a Samsung S8 Microsoft Edition?

Anthony Weiner sentenced to 21 months in prison
Weiner came under FBI investigation following the social media report about his online relationship with the teenager. His parents were in the courtroom but not his wife.

The phone is an apparent lone blot on a Microsoft landscape, but he is using it, so that means something.

Gates said that he "recently" switched phones so it is possible that he has taken on the Samsung Galaxy S8 that Microsoft has chosen to sell through its stores in the US.

Bill gates clearly stated in the interview that he uses an Android smartphone as his daily driver. It's also worth noting that at one point, in the past, he banned Apple's iPhones and iPad from the family home. More interesting is his choice of an Android handset over an iPhone.
