    I'm anxious to try the new Office Lens, and if it works as advertised, I may go back to paper notes and capture them with Lens.
    This app is great!

    I have been using Nokia from way back and replaced my 920 with 1520 and like it . However, any time I go to buy anything the app is for IOS or Androids . I was going to buy security camera at Costco and all three models had Apps for IOS and Androids only . Also, I wanted to buy an item from Kickstarter and the same story as if Windows OS does not exist .

    I have been strong user of Nokia for the HERE allowing off-line use and also Androids for not being clean and stable .

    Well, today Google announced shortly every one would be able to use their Maps off-line with enhanced features and also Google announced Androids M which will offer very clean and stable OS with lot less clutter and host of other neat Apps like Photo which allows free unlimited photo and video storage and on & on .

    I am excited about Windows 10 but aren't we deprived from the rest of the world of technology .
    IP Cameras? There are apps for those in the WP Store ;)
    If you wanted to go the android route you could always cop out and get an Xperia. Remember the Nokia vs Sony Ericsson wars? lol

    I never get these kinds of posts where people have this fake surprise of what is happening with the platform and ask should I leave? I think you've already left OP. Been gone. I think the story is some fascination with offline maps as if they don't exist anywhere but at google and here you are here to promote google over Microsoft. Period.

    I've recently been looking into something to replace my 920. On AT&T, I appear to have 3 or 4 Nokia/Microsoft choices, none of which interest me at all. Do these guys even have a flagship feature phone anymore?

    I would love to have something like the 1020 with a bigger screen, improved camera & wireless charging. At this point, I'm guessing that is never going to happen.

    There are two devices in the pipeline for this fall. If you want a phone like the 1520, you could still find them on Amazon and Ebay.

    If you are really switching to android, make triple sure you go for high end devices. you dont want to miss out good performance ,atleast for a year or so , at the expense of apps .

    Great advice! I use devices running Windows, Linux, Mac OS X, WP, Android, and iOS. (Did I miss any?) There is really little downside to it.
    Probably ... Jolla's Sailfish.
    ...Symbian, Meego, Maemo, webOS, Tizen, Firefox OS, Ubuntu Touch, many Linux desktop flavors, Commodore and Amiga, etc...

    No list of OS's used will be comprehensive, time available being a finite quantity.

    Thanks guys, but I was talking about OS's that I use, not what are or were available!

    LOL... I was sticking up for you. Zoran doesn't want you to have any time away from testing OS platforms.

    It started with my American Airlines app disappearing, and then out goes Bank of America. Then I see "coming soon" for over 3 months now at the ATT site for the 640XL. I can't get any release info from the Windows Store or AT&T as of yesterday. With my 2 super major industry staples not waiting, I would rather switch to Droid than change to United Airlines and Wells Fargo :# and live on a prayer that somehow the Windows Phone will survive long term. Switching to Sprint and using my old / never used Palm Pre spare #right before the day HP shut down the servers required to activate them... yes, I still love and miss webOS# since the non-replaceable battery gave up on my Lumia 920 several months ago, fighting expired security certificates and a slow at best, unsupported web browser at worst, it is adios to webOS and WP. Being a heavy user of navigation, at least I can obtain the latest free Here Now app for my new Droid. With my user history of watching HP destroy my very long loving history with all of the Palm phones, my faith is weak in WP having a future. Hopefully their users will be assimilated by Droid, and not iPhone.

    Multi device user here. If you want the convenience of apps being available you're using the wrong OS. Though the Windows app problem is starting to (slowly) improve, we're (Windows) still the underdog in the mobile space. We have an app problem that won't be fixed until developers take a leap of faith and test out the waters. Most app makers don't feel Windows low market share justifies making an app for which in reality is redundant because with the Universal Windows platform they can target desktop/tablet/phone and those combined equal a ton of users. Also, people aren't willing to buy Windows devices because they're favorite apps aren't there for them to use. At the end you're the only one who truly knows what works best for you. I currently use a Lumia 640 XL as my daily device, a Lumia 435 to test out Windows 10 builds, and a Moto X through my job. On my Moto I've basically disabled all Google apps, aside from the Play Store and Google Play services, and replaced them with Microsoft and other apps. I basically use my work phone for just that (work) and occasionally for when I need to download an app not available on Windows. Shoot you can even pick up an inexpensive Android phone like the Moto E ($79-$129) or a Blu phone ($69-$99) if you just need it for the apps and stick with your Windows Phone.
