    I just bought a Lumia 640 as a holiday present for someone. She's not a power user at all and will be perfectly happy if calls, texts, maps, and Cortana continue to work for another year or two, and in the meantime she gets to enjoy the simple and good looking interface. I'll try to keep her on 8.1 as long as possible, or at least until WM10 gets the bugs ironed out. For myself, I'll stick with my older Lumia for awhile on 8.1 and see how things shake out. I'm never one to jump through hoops to get new software or hardware when it first comes out, and it will be interesting to see if WM10 improves and gains traction. Meanwhile, 8.1 does about 90% of what I want and about 98% of what I need.

    Definitely would - if it was Verizon compatible. But alas! What is the old saying....Oh yeah: "I would if I could but I can't so I won't."

    Bought a Droid Turbo 2 last week to move on from my Icon....

    Wont buy anything else as long as I can. As a person who oversees 12+ phones for their family...guess who calls me the most for issues...its not the windows ones.

    This holiday season we added another 5 to the fold. Thanks to the 640 sale during the holidays. You simply couldn't beat the phone, regardless of app gap for 30 bucks. MS needs to push the 640 at low prices like their life depended on it. Flood the damn market, put it at Walgreen at the counter, walmart, everywhere!

    This is true. My mom is always having Android spam and suggestions of apps to download coming her way. My dad on the other hand, he usually asks me if he doesn't know how to do something. It's never because something broke or some app is suggested for download.

    Now that the APP store is finally starting to see some attention and they have all the apps I use now... I think I would now finally buy a windows mobile device.

    I'd buy another Windows Phone. Managing Windows phones is a breeze compared to IOS (Nag OS) and Android (LagDroid). It's even easier with OneDrive and Full Windows support also.

    Your grandparents and relatives forgot their IOS device PIN code? Look on the bright side, it's a very nice looking paper weight and doubles as a door stopper! At the right angle, you can even use them as ice scrapers!

    I see Android as a walking billboard, tracking device, malware hosting machine, that has a niche ability called a 'phone', whatever THAT is.

    I would. Bought this 640 last year for my first WP, experiencing the smooth feeling I've never had on android phones.
    I'm really looking forward to buy a 650.

    I have a note 4... Had an icon for a bit, but returned it because at the time, people were saying how it wouldn't be updated... But loved the OS.. Would definitely buy a Windows phone.. I don't have a Windows phone, but read this site every day... Lol

    I might consider a surface phone and ideally I would like to have a 950XL but I won't get another Lumia. I never came across the famed Nokia durability. My Lumia 810 had the speaker blow out. My Lumia 925's second mic died. My Lumia 930 second mic died and the proximity sensor is all screwy due to screen lifting. After reading about some of the problems with the 950's I don't trust their reliability either.

    Nope, not really. Twice burned here.

    Enjoying my iPhone, I got all my apps that I use for social, and for work. My Microsoft apps work nicely here.

    Just to reiterate, the Lumia 950XL is the best phone I have ever touched, without question.

    If I was a professional photographer I might still think the 1020 was a better camera, for what I can tell the 950XL is better there too.

    Regarding apps, if there's no app available and the website doesn't work, I find something else to do besides wish I had an iPhone.

    Not my next phone. After this Lumia 930 Il probably jump ship to iPhone. I dont like android from what little I've tried from it. I think iPhones just work and that's why I would go that route. Plus they're actually big enough for my preference now. The fives and lower were too small for me. After the iPhone I may jump back to windows if it is better than now and if the surface phone is good.
