Here are my experiences with all the smartphones I have had since 2007:
- Blackberry 8703e by Sprint - Sprint has awful coverage - would not go into 1X EV when I was on college campus .... and doesn't even have a camera.
Result: Had it in June 2007, then got rid of it in August 2008.
- Blackberry Curve 8330 by Verizon - that is a lot better .... has camera .... problem is the QWERTY keyboard and the trackball deteriorating over time.
Result: Had it in August 2008, then got rid of it in Nov 2009.
- Blackberry Storm 1 by Verizon - first touchscreen phone I had. Battery life deteriorated over time and the BB Storm's hardware just bricked at the end.
Result: Had it in Nov 2009, then got rid of it in July 2011.
- Droid Charge by Verizon - tons of apps to download now .... got a lot of games. Downside? The friggin battery always going low. Had a ton of processes in the background and clearing the RAM (373 MB!) doesn't help at all. Took a LONG time to charge it to 100%.
Result: Had it in July 2011, then got rid of it in Dec 2012.
- Current Phone - iPhone 5 by Verizon. Charges faster than Droid due to the new Lightning charging connector (4/4S has 30-pin), downloaded a few apps from the App Store so far. Downside? Can't transfer contacts and photos from Droid to iPhone so I had to manually rebuild my contact list and email a few pics to myself then save them to my iPhone.

This is to your last point.
If you had a google account on your droid, which i hope you did, you could of just set up Google Sync to do the work for contacts. Google did Sync via EAS now its done through CardDav, regardless you didnt have to rebuild the contacts by hand. Photos you could of copied to your computer, and then drop them in the DCIM folder on your iPhone.

I already tried that. Sadly the iPhone is in a different file system (DCF) and the Droid is a FAT32, I think.

Complete and total FUD. Not even a hint of any merit to this post. How about some actual troubleshooting steps taken or some non-anecdotal evidence to support your wacko theory? Google is intentionally slowing down their OS to force you to upgrade? How exactly are they doing that? Why isn't it happening to my family's 5 android devices or any of the 20 or so people at my workplace where we maintain their android work cell phones? Completely unintelligent and content-less statement.
Simply put, you apparently hate Android for some reason, so you will support whatever silly theory you see that is anti-android. Your wifee's Windows phone will probably slow down over time, too. And then you'll make a post saying that Windows Phone blows and you'll get an iPhone for her. congrats.
I've used Windows Phone, Apple, and Android smartphones over the past 4 years. My experience with Windows Phone is limited, admittedly, but I like them all for different reasons. I prefer Android for the much heightened ability to tweak and customize... which is not something you will ever have in anything Apple. We'll see about Windows Phone... they're still too new to decide.

That doesn't matter.
Copy paste of PC. Copy paste to new phone.
