    No, 3 WPs now and its the same boring platform that doesn't get refreshed. Still can't get the main bank apps etc and I've had several hardware failures in a row. Going back to Apple next time.

    i've started to use this titanic os with a Lumia 620... the problem i had with that phone was the battery, slow to start and incomplete applications... so i said ok..buy 8x..it looks much more superior ... the problem got even worst.. Lack of Lumia apps,still slow app opening,getting hot like hell and battery. so i said ok lets buy lumia 630. atleast it's going to get support. big fail. 512 MByte ram was a jock and i couldn't even switch between two simple apps and hey... all the problems except battery problem was there i had lumia apps but my camera was a sad...sad jock. then i heard the ram problem is going to be much worst in windows 10. i was an unhappy user. every time i had major problems with apps quality beside all of the things. and still, i said ok it will be my last shot with windows phone. i bought a Lumia 640xl. and yes. it's the end for me. i've recently used some cheap huawei phones and they look fast, beautiful with no problem with laggs.. and funny thing is that i don't care about os updates anymore. the thing i saw there was so much better than anything wm can get in 4 or 5 years. so good luck with your funny os updates... i'm done buying another windows phone or recommending it to another one.
    it was a sad...long... full of disappointing moments road. and now every time i think of wm I'll picture the 2nd half of titanic movie

    Yes, I am strongly considering it. The 950/xl has to be $500 or less or really wow me on the reveal.

    Owned Lumia 900, HTC 8x, Lumia 1020 and Lumia 1520 before switching to iphone 6+ last year due to app gap.

    After 1 year with the 6+ it's not as necessarily smooth as I expected. imessage drives me nuts. Sometimes they come in as text to/from iphone users, other times it's in imessage. my g/f sometimes misses texts from me because they go to her ipad and not her iphone as an example. The only time I get any kind of data is if I'm on LTE. If I'm 3g, I get no web data at all. Occassional voicemail messages are unplayable, no idea why, the play option is greyed out. My g/f has the iphone 6 and gets better signal. She may have LTE and I will have 3g. It's just not the same experience other iusers say it is.

    ALso, I paid $400 on contract fro the 64gb version. IT's basically the same specs as my 1520 with a few design differences and it was so much more expensive.

    I have found I do not game at all on my phone like I thought I would so all the games I thought I wanted I never even launched after purchase. My most used apps are available on Windows Phone mostly so it won't be a big step back as far as app gap.

    Here's what I do like about the iphone. Finger print reader, hopefully Windows Hello is just as efficient. Apple pay, not many stores support it around where I lives still, but I like it. Passbook, I don't use it much, but I like it for boarding passes. There are a few apps I may miss: bank app, thermostat app, podcastapp and yahoo fantasy football.

    The 950/XL will not be under $500, I almost guarantee it.

    YYou do realize you are running an alpha edition? It's not even a beta lmao...
    Alpha? with only a month, max two before release? This means the final release will be still a beta...as all wp versions seemed to be.

    ALSO as you live in America
    I spent my first 21 years in Indonesia and now living in Japan; have never set a foot in 'Murica.
    don't presume something that you don't know.

    and you know what? Bing is also awful in both Indonesia and Japan, but I found it not that awful.
    I could still find >90% thing I wanted to search with Bing, compared to Google.
    and FYI here in Japan, not a single big carrier sells Windows Phone; the only way to get a Nokia/Microsoft is through online shops.

    and please define "this OS in the beginning was badly built"?
    was Android or iOS began straight out mind-blowingly excellent? definitely no.
    everything takes time, especially when you're experiencing a transition state (as Microsoft is going through at the point)

    of course... no one except OnePlus sell flagship under that price point
    heard murmurs on the internet that it would be priced at iPhone 6's lowest price, but my guess is that it would cost $600-750 unlocked

    .... I use office at school to teach with and as such use a windows based laptop, a SP3. Onedrive talks perfectly with both the phone and the laptop.. my 1520 using windows 10 beta seems to work well,... .
    You are aware that you can do exactly the same with both Android and iOS?
    Office and OneDrive is not unique to WP. In fact, the Android/iOS versions outshines what you get on WP.

    no..I've tried 625...htc 8x...630 and now i have 640xl. and i say it loudly... this will be the last time i choose windows phone. in these years we always talk about smoothness in wp... but honestly.. who are we kidding with? we can't even open an incomplete app without waiting 3 4secs. we see lags in OS every other swipe. no one cares about our apps quality..even Microsoftit self. so why do we have to stayand suffer here? i don't know why i gave windows phone this many chances..but everytime it failed me. I've recently tried some new ultra cheap huawei phones and they are amazing. smooth, beautiful, fast and without any lags. and yes,it was full of apps and lets be honest... who cares about OS update when android on these phones are 3 or 4 years ahead of what we see in Windows? we are waiting and wishing for Android and IOS things comingto our phones and yet we don'thave them. I've seen a lot of Windows phone updates. and every time i waited for something better i got disappointed.
    so yes. this will be my last try. i wait for 10 version of this ridiculous OS and i know that eventually i will move on.

    100% YES my Lumia 930 is the third windows phone I've had and they just seem to get better and better! yes lots of people complain the apps aren't as good as android or iPhone but I've not missed any of them at all! i.e snapchat etc. at the end of the day the 930 and windows phone are great performers and do what I need so why change?.

    100% yes! Miss using my Lumia 920, my LG G2 lagged so badly after the lollipop upgrade I had to load a custom ROM to make it functional...can't stand using an iPhone (having to help people at work with theirs) and android is just getting clunky....my next phone will probably be another Lumia

    well then go ahead and get an android. wp is not behind android in any os perspective it actually is ahead in many aspects especially security.

    we actually have also tried cheap huawai (desire 320) phones for base office use (oncall etc.) and went back to higher end phones because that crap is pretty much unuseable as soon as you have more than one app loaded, the lag was so terrible ... so i would be very interested in what ultracheap huawai device you tried that was so smooth this could save us a bunch of money.

    in my experience the low end lumias outperform anything from the android camp at the same and slightly higher price point by quite a big margin.

    I will likely buy if they have a package deal for a phone (mid to high spec), continuum dock, good camera, etc.

    I've been a Windows Phone fan since the launch of WP8 and Lumia 920. Before that, I've only owned Nokia phones since 1998.

    I got the 920 on the launch date, and I still think that was and remains an amazing phone: awesome clearblack display, first ever OIS on a phone (and a brilliant one at that!), wireless charging and really up-to-date internals on-par with Android and iOS competition.

    I got the 1020 on the launch date, and that was still quite an awesome device. Despite the slightly aging chipset, it had an amazing camera, two gigs of ram and a fantastiic OLED clearblack screen.

    My next phone was the 1520, which is to date the best Windows Phone device released. This thing was amazing! Not only did it have the awesome Snapdragon 800 chipset, its 6" 1080p IPS display took sunlight readability to the next level. I don't think that display has yet been surpassed by a smartphone on any platform.

    It's been TWO YEARS since the launch of the last flagship, the 1520. Between that launch on late 2013 and today, we've mostly seen Microsoft focusing on downsizing the mobile division it acquired from Nokia. There has been some new devices, but no new flagships. Innovation seems to have stopped completely, and once awesome and distinctive design gone down the drain. These new flagships look atrocious! Not only is the design totally uninspired, the damn phones are only going to come out in black and white! What the hell Microsoft, eye-popping colours were one of the things the Lumias have always against the competition!!

    I have had enough. I have jumped the ship to Android. Nexus 6 was my 1520 replacement. It is an inferior device, and the OS does not hold a candle to Windows Phone 8.1. However, the Google services are amazing, and unlike Windows Mobile 10, this platform has a bright future. It's only a matter of time before Microsoft shuts the last lights at ex-Nokia hardware division, and with it, Windows Mobile 10 will, for all purposes, cease to exist.

    desire series are nit from huawei .. they are HTC branded.
    i've tried honor 3c...honor 4c... g630... g750...try these phones. specially 4c. this phone rocks.
    don't try to use security card here... no one wants to write a virus for 3% of people with so many problems. that would be cruel.
    if you do not side load apps on android, security is almost perfect.

    "Same boring platform that doesn't get refreshed" thus going back to iOS... I see what you did there...

    And did you complain to your bank that not having an app for Windows Phone is an issue?
