To Exchange, or not to Exchange?

Android - Windows Phone Central Forums - forums.wpcentral.com
Hi,

I've finally reluctantly taken the plunge and bought my first Android phone (a Pixel 2) after being with Windows Phone/Mobile since day one.

All my email, contacts, calendar events, cloud storage etc etc are in Microsoft services. I have a Google account with a gmail address but it is just a shell for their services, any emails are forwarded to my Microsoft account and I don't store anything on my google account.

I want to setup my new Android phone in the best way possible for using Microsoft services. In particular I'm trying to work out whether I need to add my Microsoft account at the OS level (which I understand should be added as an Exchange account). There are some threads that mention this but I've not found anything conclusive.

I've installed Outlook and this seems to have synced my contacts so I can use them in the phone and messaging app. However I haven't really tested it much. I don't want to find new/modified contacts appearing in my Google account while my Microsoft account remains unchanged etc. I don't really like the Android outlook calendar compared to Windows Mobile, especially the loss of a week view with the whole week on screen.

I can carry on with trial and error but would really appreciate people's thoughts and experience on whether the Microsoft account should be registered at the OS level for the best use of Microsoft services for email, contacts, calendar and storage. And perhaps what people use for their calendar.

Thanks for your thoughts!

Andrew
