Windows A few days I switched back to Windows Phone 7.5 as my main smartphone operating system. Why? Well, because I can. I like to change things up every now and then, and blessed as I am with an iPhone 3GS (currently pulling duty at my best friend as her portable gaming device), Galaxy SII with CM9, and an HTC HD7, I have the luxury of doing so. Now that I'm back in the neat, tidy, and straight-lined arms of Windows Phone 7 - three long-standing issues really break the illusion, which all come from one source: the networking stack.

I agree - I really like WP7.5 too

I also have a variety of phones, though on Verizon. I have a Droid Incredible, Galaxy Nexus, and an HTC Trophy. My order of preference: MIUI rom on the Incredible, WP7, and Galaxy Nexus (though I'm enjoying the MIUI launcher on the Nexus right now).

I keep thinking I'm going to go back to the WP7 phone except that I like the larger screen and form factor of the Nexus over the 3.5" candy bars (Incredible/Trophy).

WP7 is a great phone with just a few minor issues, though my issues differed from yours; mostly lack of auto column width/rendering when zooming in/out on browser and lack of voice commands during navigation.

WP7.5 IE does have auto-width column zooming. Double tap any column of text, and the column is zoomed in or out to fit the screen. Or are you referringto some other functionality?
