....would be an iPhone for the easiest for starters with the Android in second. Afraid that I have never used a WIndows phone so I can't offer advice about that OS.

For a smart phone one generally chooses between an iPhone, an Android phone, a Windows 8 (or the older Windows 7) phone or (maybe a Blackberry smartphone. All are fine.

Since you're already plannng to buy a Windows 8 phone, it seems you've already made your choice.
If you're not using one currently, you don't have any issues with differences between your current one and your new one.

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
