    well it has been years now since windows mobile lost its reputation and the situation goes still bad everyday.We dont actually know whether microsoft listens to us or is just putting aside but we are still loyal from the day1.I still use my lumia 520 and i dont think it is deserving a change with any software or hardware but friends of mine who believed microsoft and apparently became fans and use the lumia series and have no
    patience anymore with the platform.They are rather waiting something to change before they lose their last hope on Microsoft.There are people who complain about apps,poor performance and many things.Is there something done by Microsoft or is it just ruining the platform

    I am still loyal. I am happy with my 950XL. It does what I need to do. I am not interested in the latest apps. I just want a device that works for me. If others prefer iPhone or Android then that's fine too. Everyone can choose what they prefer. I think Microsoft won't abandon the platform entirely, but they won't revive it either. Instead, they will focus on providing their services to iOS and Android more and more. If that's the way it goes, because there won't be a Surface phone, then I will be on Windows phone for the forseeable future.

    I am loyal in the sense that it currently fulfills my needs better than the competition. It is the best OS to me and brings continuity as I use it on my phone, tablet, and laptop. They are continually updating the OS and are looking forward creatively.

    I've never been loyal to any os. I love to try them all out. They all have absolutely wonderful features and things about them and I like to stay current with each.

    I'm open to other options, but haven't found any updates on other platforms to make me jump ship yet. So for now, I'm "loyal" and waiting for the next big thing that's coming, soon.

    I would agree with what TgeekB said, but also add that the reason I'm hanging with it is that I just don't care for Android or iOS. So, unless I'm forced at some point in the future, I'm hanging in with WM10.

    I will keep using my Lumia 640XL for a year more, after that i will look for a new Windows Phone that is better and still within my budget. I'm not looking for a premium phone nor I'm looking for a budget phone. I just need something from the middle class. (640XL is a middle class, not a budget phone)
    When it comes to loyalty, i just need something that is stable and that fulfill my needs.
    My 640XL does lag and sometimes the app crashs. This is frustrating sometimes, but it does still what i want it to.

    I think I'm loyal but not narrow-minded. I still love Windows phones and I keep coming back because it does still draw me in and I miss it when I'm gone (back to Android or iOS). I've just picked up another iPhone 7 plus and really enjoying it again but not totally dropping Windows this time as my 950xl is now my work/backup phone so will still be used daily and I can keep enjoying it and keeping up with events in here

    My wife just surprised me with a new 950XL DS this past week. It is an upgrade from my trusty 640, and so far it's been rock solid for me. I've messed around with my step-son's Android phone and I just don't like it as much. Maybe because I'm just used to the layout in W10M, or I prefer a more professional appearance (IMHO) to the UI that I choose it over Android. I don't care about the so-called App Gap, as my phone has everything installed on it that I'll need. So until both of these phones finally stop working, I'll stick with what I know and am comfortable using.

    Yeah, loyalty is an odd word. I'm not bound to Windows Phone in any sense but Android and iOS currently offer me no significant reason for me to spend hundreds of pounds on a new device. Windows Mobile does everything I need and does it well.

    It might be more loyal to ourselves than WM.
    The platform, though not perfect or complete, performs as we like and is more pleasurable to use than Android or iPhone. We don't cave to the masses and use what everyone else does because its popular.

    They all do sometimes. Not one single Android user can say they've never seen "Unfortunately, "insert app here" has stopped working" or "Google Play services has stopped". iPhones are stupid fast but some of that is smoke and mirrors with fancy animations. The new iOS 10.3 allows users to stifle those animations and frankly, I'd rather see "resuming" than a frozen screen.

    I hear you. This is a partial shot because my HP Touchpad and Palm T/X are in my work bag and I'm too lazy on Sunday mornings.

    The pic was taken with my Idol 4S.

    Do you use the Passport much anymore? If so, what for?

    Many things. The main feature is Blend and the best file manager in the business.

    I just sold me Passport SE off on Crackberry. Already miss that device and find myself buying one every few months. You can't beat blend, the wide screen for e-mails and browsing. Really loved that phone.

    Not to mention the virtual trackpad. Only a laptop or Surface with a Type cover beats the Passport when working on an Excel file. Smartsheet on the web is also a pleasant experience due to the wide display and the real estate is always available since there's no vkb to hog up the screen. I'm not trying to cause you any trouble but how soon do you expect before you get another SE? :-)

    Ha ha I'm not sure. I'm exploring the windows mobile world right now and sorting my way through those devices to see if I find any that are a fit or meet my needs.

    There's something magical about the Passport that always brings me back but I think I may be done with the BB10 system.

    The biggest issue I found is I was usually using a 2 phone system when I had the Passport and due to the size it wasn't the most friendly to haul around with a secondary phone.

    Troublemaker! Haha.

    I owned one. Too big to carry around as an everyday device but wouldn't mind playing around with one again if I could get one cheap.

    There I go again. I need help!

    Yeah they're terribly expensive right now since shop BlackBerry sold out. I think once the KEYone is released prices will filter down as a bunch hit the market but who knows.

    I generally don't pay full price for my devices but buy them slightly used. Looks like you can get one for about $150 on the Bay.
