    I just bought the Note 8 from the samsung website. It should be coming this week. I am currently coming from Iphone and before then was windows phone. I am fully ingrained in the microsoft ecosystem.

    1. office 365, including onenote
    2. onedrive
    3. outlook.com email.

    Where I differ on is I utilize icloud for contacts. I haven't figured out how to export icloud contacts into either outlook.com and or gmail.

    Are there any other suggestions you have with somebody who is coming from iOS and windows phone?

    I have used android before with the mytouch 3g, LG G2, and Galaxy S7 Edge. I didn't have them long due to either stablity issues or battery issues.

    My perference would be a windows phone but they don't make them anymore.

    Use smart switch to transfer contacts to your Note 8 and they will be backed up to your gmail once you log into it.

    Microsoft makes a nice launcher that integrates with their apps, that are also nice.

    I use DeX. Microsoft apps are optimized for it.

    I think you can go to Google contacts on the web and import from iCloud. Not 100% tho.

    I would like to keep icloud as my main contact center. Can you add contacts to icloud from the Note 8?

    I know you canconnect and sync contacts connected to a email in samsungs contacts, so I assume this can be done with icloud aswell. I can't test it has I no longer use icloud

    What do you use for contacts and calendar? I am using the BB Hub as well but feel the other apps are redundant. Thoughts?
