    I am seriously disappointed in Microsoft's customer care service and also in Microsoft.

    I bought a Lumia 535 and it has terrible touch issue. Even after all the firmware updates, the problem still remained. So, I went to the customer care(Gulshan, Dhaka, Bangladesh branch) at 27th August and they accepted my phone and said that if the problem is a hardware problem, then it may take some time to fix it since they may need to bring spare parts from abroad.

    Then 3days later they called me and said it indeed is a hardware problem(which Microsoft never confessed officially) and that within 15th September they would return the phone.

    At 13th September I called them and they said they may not be able to return my phone within 15th and they will return it before 25th.

    But yesterday I called again(since it was the original delivery date) and they said that the spare parts arrived and I would get my phone back within two days(within 17th September).

    So I called today again and now they are saying they will return it within 23rd.

    I became really angry and was kind of shouting at the guy who received the phone and he just hung up on my face..!!

    1. Why a reputed company like Microsoft need almost a month to fix a phone?

    2. Why can't they keep their own word? Why they are changing the dates every time I call them?

    3. And why is their customer operator's behavior so rude?

    3. Why would they manufacture and sell thousands of defected phone in the first place?

    4. Even then why did they never admit that it's a hardware problem?

    Now I wish I never bought a windows phone! I really don't believe them and that they will really return my phone before 23rd.


    SO NO, I HAVE LEARNED MY LESSON..!!! NO MORE MICROSOFT PHONE FOR ME..!!!

    Sorry to hear that, that's the only lumia phone that has touch problem, it's hardware failure. You should have replaced it by Lumia 540

    That's what did it for me...went from 920 to Nexus 6.
    The bigger deal for me, however, was hardware....there are tons of accessories out there that are IOS and Android only...I got tired of seeing ads for things I wanted, but could never use.
    I still have the 920, and have 10 on it just to see how it works...which is slowly...very slowly.

    I still prefer the Windows interface, but I can adapt....

    Well i have both the 535 and the 640, and i've never experienced any sort of touch issues except the back key one on 535, that's the only thing that glitches a bit.
    Except that, they're both excellent, especially the battery life on 534, which i once got to work for six days, i mean, SIX DAYS. As far as i'm concerned, if i had enough money i'd definetly buy the 950/950XL.

    Answering the topics question - yes, I would. I have a Lumia 620, which I've been using for two years now. It's my first and only Windows Phone. Before that I had a Nokia 5530, which ran Symbian. I got WP because I didn't like Android (and still don't) and iOS is way too overpriced. Was thinking on getting the Lumia 830, but now with the new devices so close, I might wait and see, what's up

    I currently have a Lumia 830, which is a great phone, but if I have to buy a new phone today, I would switch to Android. I mean, I really like WP but it lacks of a lot of things yet. After more than 3 years using windows phone (coming from windows phone 7.8) I feel sometimes like Windows is always a promise, but never a reality. It's always gonna improve, they will update this and that but at the end of the day, they are all promises. I have an ipad (a very old one, which still works incredibly well) and an LG tablet, so I can test this SOs too, and I feel that WP lacks of a lot of things. First, apps. Yes, we have enough apps to "survive", the main one are there, but there are apps in other SO that creates something, more customization, or covers a very small need and you're glad you have it, but there are no such apps on WP. I look for an app on the Google Store that does something, it doesn't matter how stupid it is, it's there.
    Secondly, notifications. Yes, they will change on W10 (another promise). I mean, yeah WP is really good and have potential but, how long is it gonna take? Three years to catch up google or ios? More?
    I will give W10 a chance, because I believe in what they are saying. However, if things don't change much and faster, my next phone will not be from Microsoft.

    Completely agree with you bro !!!! I was thinking the same. I mean WP has great potential to become threat to android and ios but the lack of customization and apps which ate becoming hindrance for WP growth.

    i only want one thing to improve. a tolerable, functional Facebook app.

    Other than that, app gap is nothing more than a perpetuated idea that mainstream media has pushed onto users making them think an OS is required to have millions of apps. When in reality, the average user has 25 apps installed.

    Other than that, the value of a Windows Phone far outweighs the hefty price tag of the other devices, especially with how functional the low end devices really are. An Android is not worth owning unless you purchase the latest flagship and iPhones are just plain expensive.

    Android - yes, you can. And battery life will vary depending on the device you pick, just like with everything else. My Xperia Z3C lasts me 2 days on a single charge and moderate use.
    HOW? I have a Lollipop tablet, never seen that option.

    I think the question should be "Why you don't buy Microsoft Mobile"

    Palm Treo 700WX
    HTC Touch
    HTC Touch Pro
    HTC Touch Pro2
    HTC HD2
    HTC HD7
    Nokia Lumia 810
    Nokia Lumia 1520

    As much as I like Microsoft, the mobile version is always in beta. Now, after everyone beta tests W10M, you'll have to buy a new phone because W11M won't be supported on your old phone.

    Yeah, and you probably got them both for a third of what an iBanana costs.:)

    Love my WP. Android / iOS, been there got the t-shirt. Low / midrange droid devices struggle to live with the OS, and has been said, iOS is just too expensive.

    Love my 640xl. Dropped back to one from Lumia 930. Glance screen makes my life easier.

    Bad news... I won't be buying another one.... One of my regular taxi jobs is a guy who works with Microsoft. He is giving me his 1520 (?) when he receives his new 950xl!!!! Sweet. He is a nice guy and I pick up lots of snippets from him. Etiquette means what happens in the cab, stays in the cab. I do quite well out of Microsoft and him, fare wise 😁. It kills me sometimes when I see things, and I can't respond. No, I am NOT a BS jockey. If I had to, I could prove it.

    Long time WP fan who left for good earlier this year. Tried IP6 hatted it and dumped it on Ebay. Tried GN5 hatted it and sent it back.
    I think the phone I want does not exist. I'm currently using a Lg g Pro2 and really want a next flagship LG 5.7 inch + phone.

    There's no compelling reason to stay. There's also no compelling OS to leave to as the competitors are also garbage.

    100% yes. Ditched my iPhone 4 for a 928 and and haven't looked back. After my 928 I upgraded to a 1020 and now own a 830. I'm patiently waiting for their flagship phone.

    Depending on which OEM you picked, the place where you control it in the settings will vary. On Sony phones you can control it either via the "apps" option on settings, via "power management" or via "data usage".

    Now you mentioned you have Lollipop so there I can't really assured you as I refused the Lollipop update on my Z3C because I won't be putting up with the new horrible designs it brings. So if Google shuffled that around I can't say.
    But you can always head over to the Android Central Forums and I'm sure someone there will be able to help you with your specific device case ;)

    I wont ever go under contract (AT&T) for a Windows Phone again. If they build a true high end flagship I may think about it. These new phone dont qualify as high end.

    My problem with Window phones is so many helpful apps are created for Android and I-phones,
    but not for Window phones. I send email to the companies and don't get an answer if they will be
    creating one for Windows. Chase bank had one, and decided to drop it and don't expects to
    have one. Bank of America also pulled their app. I have a Windows 10 test phone, and glad I
    have a main phone to use, because the windows 10 phone has a BIG problem with (resuming
    and loading) when it should be displaying the start screen after the phone is unlocked. When
    a phone is picked up for use, it must show the start screen right away after unlocking, for me
    what if I have an emergency or a friend has one, the minute waiting for the start screen is critical
    so 911 can be called.

    Yes, and for a simple reason. WP is easy to use and hasnt let me down.

    I don't like to change platforms. Only about 1 year ago I gave up on blackberry just because I wasn't able to get a BB10 device here. I don't really favor Apple and for some reason I find it hard to work with android. Specs and jingles aren't important, reliability is. Apps can be annoying, but then again I come from the blackberry world where apps availability were way worse and I never got a chance to see whether the google stuff worked well or not on BB.

    WP is not perfect but nothing is. As long as I can manage files, personal office 365 and work office 365 for business without problems you don't hear me complaining.

    The ultimate phone for me though would be a blackberry quality build, slider with keyboard, note 5, with windows phone os. That's one thing I have to give Samsung, that note series with pen is impressive. But after a full year I still miss the BB keyboard (I struggle with touch) and I am pretty happy with WP os
