Im thinking about buying an Android phone (probably Samsung S3) and have some concerns about Android. (I am also considering Windows Phone 8, and while I like many things about it, I am disappointed by the slow progress in getting basic features, and in particular the lack of a user-accessible file system/store.) 1. I am used to excellent Microsoft Exchange functionality from Windows Mobile (email, calendar, tasks, SMS sync, etc.). On Android this is provided by Touchdown. My only concern is that Touchdown is not native, so the native contacts (for example) will be different from the exchange/touchdown contacts. Are these properly synced? I want to treat my exchange contacts as primary, and I don't want Android to interfere with them, except correctly when I update information. 2. I don't mind having a google account but I don't want to use any google services (gmail, google+, google voice, etc.). Will Android try to force me to use any of these, for example by automatically syncing to a gmail account? 3. How good is the Onenote app compared to Onenote for WP8? 4. Other people's android phones have extremely busy interfaces and huge collections of icons etc. and not much order. I want my phone to be streamlined, with only important information on the home page (exchange emails, calendar, tasks). Is that possible? 5. Is android logical to use? Is there a consistent way to do simple things in the OS and in apps (back, forwards, select, menu, close, and so on), or is it a free-for-all? Thanks for reading my long list of questions and thanks for any input!
