I'm a Verizon Trophy user. I've become eligible for an upgrade recently when lo and behold the Laser is announced. I currently have 7.8 on my Trophy and have never had any problems with it.
I'm wondering if current 8x/822 users would have upgraded if they knew this phone was coming, or would you have upgraded to your current phone anyway?

For me, the 8X was jumping in head first to WP, ditching iOS. I'm happy with the device, and the OS.
I'll get the "laser" and give my wife the 8X though. Better camera and Nokia exclusives would be nice.

Nope, got the 822 and love it. Good way to stay proficient with an OS to is try and stay up to date. When, and if, the Laser comes, I'll have 80% of the OS working or me and won't have to learn anything but the new stuff. Up to now, I have bought off contract but depending on the specs of the Laser, I may go for a contract. This is based on me not using a majority of the WP8 capabilities now so probably wouldn't use all the new stuff anyway.

I told my self from day 1 that I was not going to get an 8x (not enough storage/ wanted the Nokia apps) or a Lumia 822 (it would have been an awesome phone in 2011), and that I would wait for either a 922 or a Samsung flagship.
Then the Samsung was never announced and black Friday came where I got an 8x (loved my Trophy). The phone is really nice but the aspects that I like are OS based and not phone based. 16 gig is simply not enough storage.
Long story short, yes I wish that I had waited for a "total package" to be released.

It pisses me off that Verizon keeps this all hush hush when they know their customers want a high end Windows phone just so they can sell the lower end models. I guess Verizon would rather loose customers than to tell its customers hold on we're getting a high end device if you want a high end device, be patient I would have been if I had even an inclination of what was on the horizon for Verizon. (notice my clever rhyme). But I had no Idea so I bailed out and moved to at&t. Makes no sense to me. I would have liked to stay with Verizon. . .

As for the 8x, I love it. I'm not upset I didn't wait.

If I didn't have a Surface I would buy it off contract in a heartbeat! But now that i have a tablet device i carry with me everywhere, i use my phone so much less! 8x probably being much lighter and smaller than this laser device, I'll keep the 8x.
still very interested in the laser device though, just won't get it.

Probably not, had my trophy long enough and I was able to use my update. I honestly could not wait at all. I preordered my 8x the day I was allowed to. And got it once they told me it was in. I also do not regret it one bit either. No problems at all. I knew it would be awhile until Nokia released a high end Lumia. If there is a high end Lumia when I am able to update again I will most likely get that. For now, I will enjoy my 8X.

I'm in an area with their upgraded lte service. No area has been upgraded 100% so it is spotty at best. Plenty of dropped calls, poor voice quality, inconsistent data, and weak signals.

I am totally satisfied with my 822 no need to change at this point. My phone does what I want it to do and it does it well..
