    I never heard of windows phone until 2011, I saw someone at my church with the HTC Radar running windows 7,that's when I do research on Windows phones and got myself a Lumia 620 and felt in love with it, then brought a Lumia 1520 unlocked but now the Lumia 950 and 950 xl is a IDK or I don't think I'll buy neither of the phones, I'll stick my Lumia 1520 for now. The 950/950 xl render make me thinking twice.
    First: On Screen Bottoms give a feeling using an Android phone.
    Second: Can't replace the Lumia 1520,930,The Icon and 928 or the 925.

    Nokia was Nokia.... Microsoft is Microsoft, only reason wp gained life was Nokia goodwill... Wp7 was so **** , even wp8 , no ability to download & upload via browsers ... Don't think Microsoft can do work better than Nokia .... Actually today's windows 10 phone should hv been os when Lumia 800 or 920 was launched...

    Yes. I like the os. It does everything I need. I love my 930 and it is mint so no 950 for me yet. I'll wait till they are cheaper I expect.

    Yes! I recently purchased a Lumia 640 at Target for $79 and I'm enjoying this phone.

    I probably will. I started with an L520 which was cheap, then bought a L1520, which after year felt just too big so replaced with an L930. I will wait until I can see the WP950 in the flesh until I decide on getting one, but it wont be immediate because I'm happy with my current phone and I'll wait for a promotion or buy used. The 950XL seems as if it would be too big again so I'll avoid it.

    Get the 950 instead (the non-XL version). I will be getting either the 950 or 950 XL on day 1.

    Yep! looking forward to it... Unlike mny people, I have not felt shafted or deprived. I can do all I want ans need.... But I also have a lot of devices, so I am not trying to make my phone more than I expect... I have an android phone on the side that I thought would be nice for the apps I am apparently missing out on... But I never use it... I only use it when I am fishing as.if I drop it off of the kayak or boat, I wont miss it... It is to protect my precious windows phone, not replace it.

    Apps and games... I just don't realistically have time for the hips social crap. I love real life, not behind some phone app.

    Off course! WP may not be perfect, but it's a lot better than the two alternatives. I bought the L1520 after years with the cluttered mess called Android, and IOS just looks like Candy crush. Yes, they have far better developer support, but those OS'es still feel like generation one touch OS'es, basically a desktop with bigger icons. To me WP feels like the next step, no desktop, just icons.
    Now with Win 10, it seems like MS is finally managing to combine all of their ecosystems and giving us far better value than Android or iOS.

    Probably not at this point.
    I want to trust Microsoft to stick with it, but i just don't know. I like windows, I have 2 surface 3's in my house. I am hoping they will have a version I can put on my Android phone. I don't trust them enough to buy another windows phone (I hate saying that).

    That's stupid... Most people don't even use their phones foe voice calls.

    Apps, for people who are always hearded around like sheep after the latest craze, yeah... Go get the phone with the most apps... I mean I blame you for buying windows phone... With all the information out there, you new what you were buying and not buying.

    I buy windows phones cause I dont particularly care for how messy Android is and how locked to apple IOS is. I like windows phone cause its simplicity is power. I get all I need from a phone with very little nonsense.

    I have had many android (have one now), had many iPhone (may get another)... But windows phone feels the beat to me... I would rather buy an iPod touch than get an iPhone. Same with my little motorala phone now... It is a sidekick to my windows phone.

    Why make a war... It your money, buy what you want. My very close friend works for apple, not retail... Not one time has she said anything about my windows phone... And she gets paid by them... But like she said, she does not drink the koolaid... And in my experience, most people in the industry dont care... It's the consumers making war while they are making money...
    For me it is not necessarily who's better, it's about sustainability, if I invest in a platform my hopes are that it will garner features, updates and new hardware in a timely manner, as it stands now I haven't seen anything concrete that is going allow WP to gain momentum to the degree it needs.

    I highly anticipated when the 950/950XL hit the streets it'll be the same old here in Canada, carriers "may" stock one or the other (likely the lesser of the two), and if colours are a choice that too will be of their choosing, they've seen nothing that indicates WP are going to be a big seller.

    Too many issues with Lumia / Windows Mobile, similar problem with my bank, they have Android and iOS app but no WP app, I was using AirDroid on Android, there's no alternative on WP, same for Airfoil, they don't have WP client, TTPod, VLC, MX, Twitter and many other apps are 100 times better on Android. An other issue is data speed, on same network, same location, same time, on Droid Mini I get 5-6Mbps while it's hardly 2Mbps on Lumia 535 with WM 10 build 10512 installed and on WP 8.1 there is no option to choose 3G only network and it keep switching between 2G and 3G, totally useless. I like Windows Mobile but because of these serious issues, honestly there's no future for WP :-(

    Oh Hell Yeah! I started with the HTC 8X then 920 then now I'm on 830 running the Windows 10 Mobile preview build and I'm extremely happy about the user experience. I enjoy it. Please don't talk about the OS copying iOS or some BS like that. For all I know from a design persepective is that the UI stands out on its own. Unlike iOS and Android who's UI are similar on most fronts.

    I wait for Cityman. I buy Cityman!

    I actually didn't realize that Windows phone had such a die hard fanbase. I have faith!

    I would buy a another windows phone I just upgraded to a 640 from a 620.My wife and I both have windows phones my daughter was visiting yesterday and
    said her whatapp app sent a cryptic message to her top 5 contacts including my wife. I said it was probably the stagefright exploit that has affected over 900 million android devices. She was very upset that her device was not patched so much so she might get a windows phone as well.

    Well said, you took the words out of my mouth. But I didn't know that maps lost the offline navigation option. That's frightening. I'm going to hold on to my 920 for as long as I can.

    I commented earlier on this thread that i'll dump lumia and get a Moto X play.
    However, Now i am seriously thinking NOT to dump my 640 Xl ;)
    The phone is nice, no lags, super battery backup, very good camera just to name a few points.
    I think i am falling in love with it :P
    I have only one gripe- the vibrator- only vibrates twice & NOT continuously when i get a call.
    I have used iphones (5, 5s, 6+) and Android (Nexus6, Note 3 etc) and frankly i didn't like either of them. Iphone feels like a toy(a very costly one) and android- is very unpredictable. One bad update (like kitkat) and the device is gone :P
    I will probably wait, see what MS has to offer in W10..

    I learned a long time ago... Never update your Android tablet or phone.... In my experience, they always get worse and so buggy... I mean, in the past ot was the same with IOS, but that has gotten better...

    With windows phone, that has been so different... Yeah, the spinning gears suck, but I have been able to get all updates and be very happy.

    You can't count the windows 10 betas as this is test software and not release. .

    Windows phone gets my praise for its efficiency with all it has... I mean, 920s are still kicking... If I had not broken the sim pins with an adapter, I would still have it.

    My first smartphone was a Win7 phone then a 920 to a 1520 (drowned in a river) and now I just grabbed a 640 xl to hold me over till the City XL comes out. So personally I have only been on a WP but then at work they gave me an IPhone 5 to use, this was my first experience with another phones OS. After using the IPhone at work I am still scratching my head as to how this thing became so popular and pray WP never dies!

    Issues beside people adopting and getting more apps is the phones themselves since MS took over. Yes I am looking forward to the City XL but it still does not look and feel like a high end phone. I loved my Nokia phones but this 640 XL feels cheap, runs clunky and does not excite. MS go grab some more Nokia designers and trick these things out!

    Windows Phone Forever!

    The offline maps are the same. There is offline navigation.
