    One year and a half with the "flagship 930" and besides the very good camera, and beautiful amoled screen, the gift of a bluetooth speaker and a 20 voucher I really think my choice of living without google did not really pay off. WP 8.1 and 10 is a constant beta. My bank does not have a WP app. Neither my semi prof photo camera manufacturer. Of course they do have it for iOS and Android. WM10 is a copy of iOS the buttons the styles the fly-out of the tiles aso. Cortana's stupid regional settings are infuriating. British Cortana sounds like a female Hawkins simulator combined with a depressed BBC presenter. The list is very long and mostly boring. Now my question to you all, who had either of the flagship models would you go and spend another 4-500 or equivalent in any currency on a new Microsoft Mobile? Please put your hand on your heart and be honest. I will start by saying NO.
    Well with windows 10 mobile you can just side load the Android apps. Or download them if they are in the store. 2/3 major problems solved?

    Waiting for something with sd 210/410; USB mobile data tethering, two separate radio channels for dual sim and the ability use contacts on the sim cards.

    Intel is another option.

    Of course! I love Microsoft and its products and Windows Phone is my favourite mobile OS. As long as Microsoft continues to develop and support Windows on mobile, I will buy phones running Windows.

    Lagdroid is horrible, it lags too much, has a lot of security and performance issues and the UI and apps are too ugly. Plus, Google spies on whatever one does on his/her Lagdroid device. iCrap is too elitist, niche and overrated. I was a fan of Blackberry and its OS, but with the new Venice device running Lagdroid leaked, it is likely that that company may ditch its OS for that Lagdroid.

    No, but only because I wouldn't $500 for any phone. That is an insane amount of money for a handset.

    Now, will I wait 6 months and see if I can pick one up for $300-350? Absolutely. If I have to wait a year, I'll do that too.

    Phones are too easily ruined by getting caught in the rain, or a drop while fumbling with your keys, or getting snatched from your hand by a thief, or any number of other things. I don't $500-600 to throw away. I suppose if that was pocket change, I'd pay it. But it's not, so I'll wait.

    If your question is - will you stay with WP, then the answer is absolutely. The wife has Android, and suits what she needs. The kids all have iPhones. As soon as snapchat ports to WP, they are coming over. They love my phone - they just can't live w/o a few of their stupid social media apps.

    If WP10 allows easy porting, and expands the store, the kids are in.

    No. Granted I got my Lumia 640 for 99 dollars at Walmart but just as a backup to my Nexus 5. While Windows is nice it does not interest me that much to make it my flagship device which shall be a new Nexus 2015 :D. The apps are missing and the apps found are sub par, browsing experience is awful (IE is terrible) and it isn't up to date with lollipop and ios 8 even Marshmallow and ios 9 but it is there in Windows 10 which was goo and awesome but what 8.1 should have had already.

    What a pity that BB is even doing this, BB10 is still my favorite mobile OS. BB is making sure I'll stay with windows phone.

    I have the Lumia 920 and 925 and really love Windows Phone 8.1, but no - I am joining you by saying I wouldn't buy another WP flagship. I honestly don't have interest in Windows 10 Mobile (I would probably give Windows 10 a chance on my laptop if it weren't 5 1/2 years old). I may get flak for saying this, but I'm planning on getting the iPhone 6S in September. However, I'm not completely leaving WP because I still adore the Nokia Lumia 925 and will be swapping the SIM (in a SIM adapter, of course) out on occasion to enjoy using it. I may get rid of my 920 and 810, but the 925 stays with me. The only negative about that phone is the storage. If it were 32GB, it would be perfect - but I'm definitely not upgrading it to Windows 10.

    Well... Since Android and Ios is both so much behind on the UX and functionality of the device... Neither has the perfect blend of UX and personalization and both lack any kind of alternative to Live Tiles, I would never go back to Android or Ios.

    I endured Android for two years and I help friends with mobile repairs and from that experience I really despize everything Google has "done" for those phones. I can't even describe how horrible the experience is overall compared to what I am used to with WP.

    By the time sd 210/410/615 would come in Lumias, the Android phones would have Snapdragon 212/412/415/425/618/620. Windows mobile always 6 months/1 year late to use latest Snapdragon processors, Lol.
    HTC 520, 526, 626 already have Snapdragon 210, Moto G 2015 already has 1.4 ghz quad core Snapdragon 410, latest Micromax Canvas Nitro 4G E455 already has Snapdragon 415 1.4 ghz octa-core processors.

    That's the kinds of conclusions you draw when you make an assumption about someone without actually knowing anything about that person.

    I'm mostly in it because of me being in their ecosystem. I have an Xbox, office subscription, Groove music subscription, movies, and I have a PC. I honestly would rather have something that can all sync up faster than own an android and download Microsoft apps. If you're a child and you need to tinker with your phone, u have those two other options. Microsoft phones are an acquired taste. You clearly don't like it, so don't bring us to your bandwagon.

    Has Microsoft ruined Live Tiles in the Windows 10 mobile technical preview?

    Even high end lumias are not as 'productive' as Android. Lumias have the style, quality and looks + the camera. But they will not get the work done.
    Seriously ? No.
    What is productive for you ? What do you use your phone for ?

    what job android does and WP doesnt? I am very much productive with WP than i can ever be on android. having off a load of wallpaper and theme changing doesnt mean productivity. for me android is still a toy and new version of Symbian thats it. WP gets the job done and well.

    I've seen the new note 5 and man they can do so much more than windows phones. Sure they also can make calls ,text and browse web like windowsphones can but they can do much more. The notes multitasking is so serious.

    Absolutely yes. The Microsoft ecosystem integration is excellent and central to my needs. My 1520 is superior to all my friends' phones and the camera quality is unmatched. There are no missing apps that can't be easily handled with a pinned website icon. And I love Cortana!

    I would without a second thought. Having originally owned an iPhone to android to WP7, I absolutely love it. The only thing that I really miss in WP8.1 is the deep integration which WP7 has. Hopefully some of that is making a come back in W10M to some extent.
    Most people complain about the lack of apps but I have all the apps I need and more. I've been using the 1520 for almost 2 years and the 930 for over a year now. Absolutely love them especially the looks of the 930 :)

    So yes, I will be buying the next flagship, 950 XL (or whatever Microsoft call it).
