Even for diehard Windows phone loyalists, it's getting hard, or at least harder, to stay the course and stick with Microsoft's mobile OS. Samsung's impressive new Galaxy S8 (GS8) smartphone is one reason why.

The phone is undoubtedly going to draw a lot of people away from other platforms, including Windows Mobile, and also Apple's iOS. But what about you? Is the GS8 the phone that will finally draw you away from Windows Mobile?
