    I've had one phone only, the amazing 1020. I have none now but that was and is my best phone

    I have owned the following:

    ...the 720 (excellent and tough device);
    ...the 830 (elegant but somehow did not catch my fancy);
    ...the 1520 (an amazing device - a favourite - though a bit impractical for me to carry around as a phone);
    ...the 640XL (another amazing device and tough as nails - another favourite);
    ...and now the 950XL (one of the best devices I have ever owned though I don't really want to test its robustness - I simply love its bland and minimalistic looks and the way the hardware recedes into the background when the screen is on - this is my current favourite device).

    I first owned an HTC Trophy, then a Lumia 822, and now a Lumia 640. I despise the sleek curved phones everyone seems to drool over, I want square edges. For this reason (and Windows 10), I like the 640 the best. Hoping a Surface Phone delivers me the ergonomics I'm looking for.

    920 - full of new tech (OIS/wireless charging). Felt good. Unique. Loved it.
    640 - super cheap, slim and light. A phone you can just enjoy
    950/xl - What Windows 10 Mobile should feel like on a phone

    Happy to be back to WP with my 950XL, but the 920 by far was my favorite. A lot of firsts came with that phone, must be the nostalgia.

    1. Lumia 920-- Battery was a waste
    2. Lumia 1520- Camera was AWESOME, the only thing lacking was apps + Ghost touch issue ( size was little challenging sometimes)
    3. Lumia 640XL - bang for buck. Storage should've been 16GB at least. Camera is good, lags sometimes (maybe because apps are stored in SD card instead of internal memory.

    Lumia's should have 32GB memory + SD card by default. App gap is not a big issue now a days, options are available. Looks MS is not interested in investing in it anymore.

    Actually had the dreaded ghost touch issue with the 1520. Replaced the screen (after dropping it on a bus one day😭) and the ghosting issue disappeared completely.

    I think the upcoming anniversary edition of Win10 DESKTOP and the latest Redstone build of Windows 10 MOBILE are so strikingly similar, that maybe they just don't need as many staff now as the Win10 versions have truly converged on one code base, and therefore less staff are needed to maintain all the different versions that there were before. Though I think most of the layoffs announced today are in the hardware division...

    Not only the underlying code is similar now, but if you look at the anniversary review of Windows 10 desktop on this very site, it looks very much the same as the mobile version too, eerily so, and much more than I was expecting, hence the reason I just signed up for DESKTOP insider builds so I can experience all the desktop goodness too

    Only had the 1520 and the 950XL as I don't think the HTC HD2 running 6.5 counts, but in our family (So phones I have worked with) we have had several more from the 7 series, 520, 830, 930 and I have to say the 950XL is just perfect for me, slightly more usable than the 1520 on size and just a great phone.

    Just to let y'all know...

    2 threads were merged. The older one asked some more pointed questions even though the intent was the same in both threads.

    Which Windows Phone do you like the most?
    Why for?
    Did you miss anything on it? If yes, what and why?
    Did you find anything frustrating on it (other than app gap)?

    An ordinary 10USD phone that has basic functionality - no internet, no touch screen, no gps etc. The Nokia 100 I think

    Maybe some of us should club together and raise some money to get you a 635 or similar...

    As much as I appreciate that, and I do, I rather wait for the right time and get one on my own steam. I got my 1020 through 2 months of competing in a regional competition and adding my own money to finally purchase it. I need to really be ready to buy one again or win one. I also want to be sure that I can be 10 times more careful and watchful lest it be stolen again like my 1020.

    Thank you for the idea

    Why for? The home screen, live tiles, and that camera made taking photos fun! Also the MS swipe keyboard was awesome.
    Did you miss anything on it? If yes, what and why? Of course there were apps from my bank and such that weren't there, but nothing that I couldn't get around.
    Did you find anything frustrating on it (other than app gap)? The music experience, though I was a legacy Zune and WP7 user for years.

    Lumia 1020, I miss that phone. After using its camera, I never found any camera that good on any phone.

    Lumia 928. Probably the best design: legacy Nokia N9 design+modern infusion, glance, camera+xenon flash and button, excellent screen, hefty construction worthy of a flagship, good speaker. And it was on Verizon. Did I miss anything on it? Perhaps better battery life. Anything frustrating? The screen would sometimes have phantom touches and non-responsiveness. Turning on/off resolved that each time though.

    My favorite windows phone was the Lumia 925 on TMO.

    That beautiful amoled screen felt so premium and the solid rounded aluminum frame just made that phone set apart.

    Great camera, but lousy battery life. Design wise Nokia knocked it out of the park with that one.

    I have 3 Lumia phones now.

    L640 XL: nice midranger, love DDtW like my 925 had. Big screen

    L650 : Honestly, the best overall performance with win 10 so far. I find I keep coming back to it.

    830 : Just got this 5 days ago. Nice premium metal band and running insider build .67 fine so far.

    Overall the 925 was probably my favorite with the 640 XL and 650 a tie for second.

    While the 830 is certainly a nice phone it's plain and utilitarian with a lousy hard to get on back panel.
    Like another poster said, the 925 design should have been on bigger screen phones.

    I agree 100%. That 925 was a beauty. Best screen, wonderful camera and real premium feel to it. My 550 runs WP 10 nice and smooth but I'll never forget my 925. That phone along with my old Tmobile Nokia E73 will always be remembered as my two favorite devices ever!

    That was another thing with the 925 I remember, that phone got quite hot often. Especially while charging and watching videos. I know phones get warm charging, but it was something I distinctly remember with the 925. Still the best windows phone I have had yet.
