Microsoft's in-store Android looks desperate but can Google stop it?

Re: It's dead, Jim

Yeah it should. As an owner of Lumia 640 myself, I'm reconciling myself to doing the unthinkable when it dies; Yes cross over to the dark side and get an iPhone! (not a new one, a 2 generation old hand-me down will suffice and and least someone else will have paid Apple's margin tax). Why not Android then? In a word, security! Ever since I read about dodgy Chinese manufactures loading spyware into the firmware of new phones, my confidence in this Linux distro has declined, and continued to do so with every security issue I have read about since. So damn, an iPhone it will proably be. Which is a pity because I actually like Windows Phone and the Lumia hardware has been solid.
