    If I switch my OS, I'm also switching a lot of services. Like OneDrive, email and anything else related. It's a big move.

    why not just keep using oneDrive? It works great on Android. As do most other Microsoft services.

    When my 928 power button took a dive and my contract was almost up I made the switch to Android. Picked up a Nexus 6P and so far I could not be happier. Like some other has stated, it is good to finally have APP's which are written for everyday accessories. Plus now that I have a phone that is not locked to a particular provider ( ATT) I get updated much quicker. I did like the WP interface on both my 920 and 928, plus I liked the wireless charging. The new USB-C is really nice on the Nexus 6P, fast charging is a plus. If or when this phone craps out I may give WP another look, it all depends if there are good APP's written for consumer accessories.

    I am happy with my 1520 and still do Not see anything to replace it with . I will wait another 6 months . The lack of Apps will eventually force every one to go with Android . Every new technology coming to market has Apps for Android and IOS . Even Tim Cook said Apple will offer Apps for Android . MS has to do something to turn the table and believe they will . Otherwise why would they spend millions on Maps to improve on it . Also Google has started to offer auto update OTA with its new phones which is a huge deal so when I switch that is what I will get and NO Samsung which takes forever to put updates through .
    So let's see MS will do

    I was one of the lucky few to be given a 950 and display dock by Microsoft, i have tested 10 mobile for a long time but alas no more. It's not good enough and they are not trying hard enough, so I sold it, bought an Amazon fire phone, rooted it and installed slimkat 4.4 and I don't think I will need another phone this year, brilliant hardware and software for 60. Just a real shame, gave Microsoft all the chances and they did not come through.

    You are an ambitious one to do all of that. At least you got to try before buying with the 950.

    You can try searching for Bing, and Cortana will be a suggested app.

    After 3 years with WP I jumped over to IOS and the difference is night and day. The final straw as an insider fast ring was the constant crash/reload of browser, some apps, the lagging performance, and the hotspot issue that never got fixed over the last four or five updates.

    Wow. Yeah, I see this in apps myself, including one that I use everyday. As I told my brother, it's hard to want to go back to eating the crust (since it's all you got), when you have a choice to eat a whole slice.

    Went from an 8x to a 735 recently so figure I have a year or two before having to make the decision of staying or going. I would like to stay as the OS does pretty much everything I need and I like the way it works (and some thing even better when I had an 8.0 phone), but MS just doesn't seem to want me to stay.
    After my 8x, which I would have had to replace anyways because they're not releasing W10m for it, even though it's about as good as the 735, I would be hard pressed to go third party again... at least MS is trying to release W10m for as many W8/8.1 phones as possible.
    Unfortunately it's looking like there isn't going to be an MS phone for me to go to on Verizon. If that holds true when it comes time to replace the 735, I'll be looking at an iOS or Android phone. I guess the good thing is that by then the other os' might have live tiles and any MS software I want to take with me will be available as well.

    Finally gave in to despair. I've been dealing with random reboots, crashes, and app freezes over the last few months. Having to charge the phone multiple times per day, usually twice. I traded my 950 in for an iPhone 6s today. After moderate use today I'm just now slightly below 50%. I'd be at around 30 or less on my 950. I like the screen and hardware but I'm not going to keep paying to beta test the os anymore.

    We jumped over to the iPhone 6 a couple weeks ago after experiencing the same issues. I like what MS is attempting with features that IOS lacks but it is just too problematic. The last straw for me was the ongoing hotspot issues.

    The 6p arrived a few days ago.first android and its a bit confusing. Some apps can be deleted others disabled. Some widgets are ugly as heck and don't update very well, good thing there's many to choose from. Settings are a bit messy, all over the place really.

    what's the purpose of having 3 home screens? Also, square icons are ugly, it looks kinda outdated really. But the phone is fast, smooth, gorgeous display and the stereo speakers are pretty nice to have, it enhances videos and games for sure. Overall I have not decided whether to keep it or send back. I do see what people mean by app gap though. Banking is much easier and so is using social media. Google play is huge but looks like alot of duplicate apps. Google was big help setting it up. A tech took me through the process. That said, as of now I still like WP better, so far.
