    Since the last couple updates, my 950 is much worse. I use continuum a lot and that works like crap now. On one 950, it doesn't work at all. On the other, it works, but both outlook and messaging do not work. They launch on big screen then crash immediately. Just ticks me off. The other glitches i can live with, but this prevents me from getting work done. Argh!!!!
    Continuum seem more stable on my 950XL, works better with MSFT wireless display. But I lost the usage of mouse and usb-keyboard on host. The host being my Acer laptop. Anyone can confirm if its available on surface devices?

    But a bad idea
    If you mean getting another 1520....you've no idea!

    I drove around 40 miles to the woman's house who was selling it on Gumtree (the equivalent of Craigslist here in the UK), it was late evening so it was quite dark and the woman kept the lights off in her house so I couldn't get a super close look at the phone, my kids were in the car and cranky so I was in a bit of a rush anyway and quickly checked the phone worked with no obvious damage (apart from the missing sim tray I already knew about). I got home and quickly started to see issues. Glance didn't work, double to wake wouldn't work, the front cam would just crash when switching to it and the screen was springing up at the sides. It quickly became obvious it had been badly repaired at some point and the person had done some damage doing it. I took the back off to see what was going on and boy what a mess it was. I never paid a lot for it so it was always a bit of a gamble but that didn't stop me feeling so stupid for not checking it properly. I'm not even going to ask for my money back as it's my own stupid fault and taught me a harsh lesson. Lovely phone otherwise and just makes me even more nostalgic but I won't be getting another.

    That's a bad misadventure.

    I once bought a used red 1520, thru a local online site. The price was USD230, which is about what the market sales value was at that time, about a year ago.

    Met the seller at the nearby eatery. Upon inspection, everything seems fine. No dents. Took off the back jellycase, nary a scratch. It looked MINT. It ran W8.0/Denim. Took some test shots, launched some apps, GPS, etc... Nice and quite decent price.
    Upgraded it to W10 fast lane, and ran really well.

    This was actually the first of two 1520, I purchased on behalf for my brother. He's a OnePlus user, eager to pit his OP1 with a 1520...

    Anyway, I got to use it for about 6 months, when the screen suddenly began to die on me. Darn. It eventually was cannibalised for parts.

    Moral herein: One never know how pre-owned stuff turns out. I thought I got a real bargain, which lasted for only ½year!!

    This!!

    I love coffee, but seldom drink at Starbucks. A matter of choice to enjoy a cuppa at locally owned cafés. It costs about the same.
    Then there is the local coffee shops serving local coffee, at a fraction of what you'd have to pay at franchise outlets

    ... erm, what was this thread about??

    Really? Outlook is better on W10M? How so? Real question.....I'd Love to know.
    For starters, you can't pin multiple accounts to your start screen. That automatically makes it better than Android or iOS. MIME attachments won't open on iOS and there are no apps available to do so. On iOS, you can only use the built-in notification sounds but that may change if iOS 11 truly brings a full-fledged file manager and allows app permissions. Lastly, the tight integration with contacts and calendars is more robust than Android or iOS simply because they are extensions of the Office suite as opposed to independent apps on the others.

    Not sure how to take your comment :-)

    If the point is that coffee is good, and more coffee is more better, and like there's no such thing as too much coffee or bad coffee, then I suppose - spiritually - yes.

    But no. I think Starbucks coffee is overrated and overpriced.

    What dov said. I moved to an Iphone 7+ because my X3 on fast ring was rebooting too often. The latest fast rings solved that. The garbage collection is still hit or miss and a forced reboot every day is still necessary. Outlook is way better than on Android or Iphone. Still, there are glaring app holes (Starbucks) and other oddities.
    No offense, but the above is part of the biggest problem Microsoft is facing.

    First of all you're criticizing W10M based on an unstable fast ring release. That's just poor thinking. If you want stable you don't use the fast ring, you use the production build or whatever it's called.

    Secondly, it makes zero sense to first of all complain about the lack of a Starbucks app, then when people say it exists check it on an earlier Windows version than the one we're discussing.

    Even the first month I had my phone, last year, I was baffled by some people who would complain that there were no bank apps with specific features, yet I had it on my very phone. And there were other statements that were just straight up inaccurate. And questioning those false statements were considered confrontational or whatever. And this is before we even get into the question of whether or not people are having problems with the OS or their batteries (or other hardware such as memory cards).

    So, what MS is facing is a bunch of really bad information about the the OS floating around. That's its biggest hurdle in my opinion.

    It's definitely better on W10M. On Android, Outlook won't let you pin individual boxes to the start screen. The widget is awful. There is a combined inbox mode which is a total mess.

    There's a lot more in forgetting, but the thought of opening it back up is giving me anxiety.

    On my 950 I never considered looking for a different email app. On Android I could only deal with it for about a day until I had to find an alternative.

    Encryption


    I can't get my corporate email on the Accompli based Outlook in IOS or Android because the caching isn't encrypted.

    Isn't it because email is routed through a single MS/Accompli server? (or are we talking about the same thing?) I can't get work-related email on Outlook for Android/iOS because of security but any other Exchange-capable client is fine. (ex. BlackBerry Hub, Gmail)

    Yes. The Accompli client sent email unencrypted to their server. My organization will not allow unencrypted email.


    Here's what I get adding my corporate email....

    7.13.17: W10M is bait store buggy. Contacts breed (30+ at times), contacts and mail will not sync quickly and once they do sync they endlessly cycle, applications and account information randomly disappear.

    Looking forward to the fall. Not interested in going to another OS

    Starbucks coffee is highly overrated.
    I do not drink coffee at all.

    But, it's funny: no name coffee in my dead country with average salary $150/month costs exactly like coffee from Starbucks.
