    First, the Lumia 822 (Died within 18 months. I think the micro-USB port was bad. Couldn't charge the phone.), then the Lumia 928 (I had 3 of these, a couple of cracked screens.), now the Lumia Icon. It has been 4 1/2 years in total. Sadly, the Icon may be the end of the road for me. I blame Verizon (in part) for the demise of Windows on phones. I would have jumped to the 950 or 950XL, but they weren't options on Verizon. It was easier to just to stick with what was available then to switch carriers. If it was just me, I probably would have switched, but I have a shared plan with my wife. It may not have mattered if Verizon did support the OS more, but it would have had a better chance.

    Going way back on the mobile devices.....

    Pocket Pc
    Sharp Pocket Pc > Viewsonic Palm PC

    Windows Mobile Phones
    SMT-5600 > SDA > Tilt > Tilt 2

    Windows Phone
    LG Quantum (WP7) > Lumia 900 > Lumia 920 > Lumia 950

    And I always surprise people when I tell them I had a tablet PC in 1994, the Compaq Concerto.

    Oh... And I have never broken any of my phones, not even cracked glass.

    I've been using nokia phone's since 1998 and my first phone was Nokia 8110.
    My windows phone history is pretty short. I will put on the list Nokia N9 64gb, even thou it's not windows phone, but it was released right after microsoft bought mobile devices from Nokia.
    My first actual windwos phone was Lumia 1020 and now I'm using Lumia 950.
    I'm looking for to get my hands on Lumia 950XL DS.

    I went from using Symbian phones, to Android, to Windows phones starting with a 1020, then 1520, but finally came to iOS (for personal) and Android (work issued SGS6)

    The 1020 and 1520 were great, stable devices, and the 4K video with 8 mp image capture on the 1520 allowed me to take some great shots on a Caribbean vacation.

    Gotta say, articles like this, seem like a platform swan song and remind me of the final days with Symbian. I don't think we'll ever get an "it's over for W10 Mobile" from Microsoft, due to contractual obligations with partners, but it's effectively kaput. On the bright side, I still use the 1520 in my drawer as a home stereo mp3 player and take along camera, when I want to conserve the battery on my iPhone. From what I understand, Windows phones' software progressively worsened, in stability and performance, with W10 mobile.

    Who knows what's next?

    My love affair with Windows on a phone started with the T-Mobile Shadow (HTC Juno). It was a much simpler time, when you could load programs with .cab files.

    T-Mobile Shadow - 3 Years
    HTC HD2 (Windows) - 2 Years
    HTC HD7 - 1 Year
    HTC 8X - 2 Years
    Lumia 1020 - 2 Year
    Lumia 1520 - Still Rockin it!

    I actually never knew about Windows Phone until the Surface RT was announced. I saw that Microsoft, like Apple, offered their services all platforms (phone, TV, PC, etc). Now, at this time I had an iPod Touch so I needed to choose between jumping ship from Apple or staying. Since wanted a tablet, the Surface RT seemed like the better pick for school (Office wasn't on iOS yet). I couldn't get myself a phone since I didn't have a job in highschool, but I followed Windows Phone Central reading about these cool looking phones that I really wanted to try using. For me, live-tiles were a game-change, and I couldn't wait until I could get one. Unfortunately, I live in Canada so a LOT of the phones I'd read about were not available for me. By the time I finished highschool and got a job, the Lumia 950 was just released and I've been holding onto that since. Hoping my wait to join the party won't end in disappointment.

    I haven't been here very long. In fact before I had a Windows phone, I made fun of it a lot. Then last year, I got a Lumia 640 and I was hooked. Then this February I got a Lumia 1520. Now I'm just waiting to see what's said at Build so I can decide whether to stay out leave wp.

    All my phones I have ever owned have been Windows Phones, since 2013 it's been:

    Nokia Lumia 520>Microsoft Lumia 640>Nokia Lumia 930>Microsoft Lumia 950>Microsoft Lumia 950 XL. Question is: Will my next phone be an Android or can I still stick with Microsoft?

    This journy of using WP was pleasing but not without frustrations due to many inconveniences.

    My WP history: L620>L640XL LTE>L950XL

    All three are working fine. All three phones were used in Windows Insider (Fast Ring) program. None bricked.

    Lumia 830
    Lumia 1520 (white)
    HTC One M8 for Windows
    Lumia 950
    Lumia 950XL

    I use my Lumia 950XL and Continuum daily, even typing this reply via Continuum.

    I would like to get an HP Elite X3 or at least a Alcatel Idol 4S for Windows to have the added CPU and GPU power/battery efficiency of the Snapdragon 820.

    Work: Lumia 630 > Lumia 640xl

    And now iPhone

    The 930 was my favourite but 520 deserves a mention, that was a hell of a phone for £99 and Windows Phone 8 absolutely flew on it.

    I'm due an upgrade at the end of the year I can't see Microsoft turning it around by then. I wish they would just explain what's going on.

    I went from various "world phones" to finally a few iPhones, then hopped on ship with a 1520. Loved the size and the camera. Then I started getting phantom touches and eventually the screen shattered so I got a 640 to replace it because it was $30. Used that until I was tired of the slow processor and bought a 950. Definitely bought that phone way too early. It was NOT ready for consumer use yet. Had that for a while, cracked that screen, bought another 640 because I gave my old one away to a friend who needed a replacement phone, then eventually got my 950 fixed. I've been using it now for about a year straight and I'm just finally fed up with the stress from constant app crashes, freezes, and in general things that just don't work. I picked up a OnePlus 3T because I've read that its OS is as smooth as butter and hardly ever stutters. I'll see how I like it when it gets here this week.

    Prior to cellular, the dream kicked off at work in the late 90's with CE 2 on my NEC MobilePro and at work with the first iPaq. Then in 2005 they let us purchase HP iPaqs 6315 with Windows Mobile 2003 PocketPC Phone Edition.
    For personal windows phones, in 2009 I purchased an HTC Touch Pro2 Windows 6.5 Pro, 2010 HTC Surround with Windows 7, 2013 we purchased Lumia 520's for the whole family, 2014 my wife and I got Lumia 1020 and from the beginning of 2016 until now, my wife got a 640 and for myself, a Lumia 950.
    Back in December Microsoft Store had a fire sale on 650's so we purchased spares for the kids and so I can run Insider rings.
