This will be a good advantage to Microsoft over Samsung.
As far as software is concerned, Samsung Galaxy X will come with the pre-loaded Android OS, while on the other the Microsoft Surface Phone rumored to launch with Windows Core OS, thanks to CShell, which will comprise Windows 10 with the support of .exe on Continuum and with a completely scalable interface.
