    I have similar concerns. 3 years is way too less for a flagship device. It should be at least 6 years.

    I'm sticking with this phone (950xl), for at least another year, maybe even 2, even if it is not supported. I bought it at very very good value and it runs well for my needs. $400 Australian including the continuum dock. A bargain if you ask me.

    It's not slow at all....only dodgy apps such as the latest Facebook messenger struggle, and that is down to the developers not os or hardware!

    I love my 950XL. As long as the new flagship is ready and available. I don't mind selling the 950XL on eBay for $50 and dropping $600 for a new Windows flagship. I don't really care what OS it will have, as long as I have continuum, and the OS is Microsoft.
    You are nuts to sell at that price, let me know if you do, ill buy it.

    I really don't know, but remember -- Nadella said that MS is committed to mobile. That said, it appears that he has done everything in his power to kill the platform. Since they don't have many options right now, either they support through 18 or they will need to release Surface phone and allow time for people to upgrade -- I would say 6 months. Let's watch and see how honest his statement about commitment actually is.

    After a whole year seeing how my fav apps were falling down from my 950XL with no MS response, I got sick last month of this situation and jumped to a Huawei Mate 9. Nothing to regret. I recovered all my lost apps in 15'. Goodbye forever, WP.

    Yup, once Spotify, eBay and Tapatalk left the platform, I back benched Windows phones and made an iPhone 6s+ my daily driver.

    Thanks again ๐Ÿ˜Š for everyone's opinion! It's much appreciated!!

    Anyhow I'm a PC ๐Ÿ’ป Gamer! "300+ games" Steam, Origin, Uplay, GOG.net, Battle.net, list goes on and on... So I'm not dropping my custom build Rigs with Win10 Creators PC's....but I will have to intergrade all my info ๐Ÿ›ˆ and data from my MS Lumia 950 XL "Win10M Creators" into Google Pixel 2 XXL "Android 8" at yearend somehow??.....never jumped platforms before, like I said...was with Microsoft Mobile phones for 11 years!!! I have everything intergraded into MS....Movies and Music ๐ŸŽถ......Note One, Outlook, Outlook Calendar, OneDrive, Cortana etc etc....

    On the up coming Android 8 should be able to put all those MS Apps back on and have a functioning "NOT MS" very unfortunately working Phone again??....I don't expect to Love ๐Ÿ’˜ Android 8 coming from Win10M Creators! ....right now "Win10 Creators" & "Win10M Creators" are the best OS's on the planet! (2017) My opinion..... Quite frankly it Scares the crap outta me to jump platforms.

    I'm not getting rid of my Lumia 950 XL but will use it a a second backup phone or music ๐ŸŽถ player or something....it's still a great device if it's still working in 2018.

    I hope ๐Ÿคž you all enjoy you're next 7 months+ with our Lumia 950 XL as much as I loved it... and I would of bought me the Lumia 960 XL and gave the 950 XL to my wife if it wasn't cancelled last year! Was so hoping for the Surface Phone Pro too come this year but there's nothing on the road map for 2017??

    It's a very sad ๐Ÿ˜ข thing for me to say.....2018 Win10M RIP....2018 RIP?

    Blackberry went Android 6, Nokia went Android 7, Microsoft goto Android 8? ....I mean could there be a MS Android 8 devices? Or a software overlay something like Samsung TouchWiz UI but MS UI for Android 8 to download?? Would be interesting, not saying a replacement of Win10M OS but for us people that been with them forever...little something to keep Win fans little happier even on another platform ....like next generation Android 8??.....I'm still gonna use all MS apps and MS services on the upcoming Android 8 OS.....guess I find out in 6 months.

    Google project "Taimen" aka Pixel 2 XXL made by (HTC) or (LG). ....Google just gave LG $880 Million dollars for there new displays.

    Android 8 "Android O" OS
    6" 3K or 4K HDR10 OLED display (LG)
    Corning Gorilla Glass 5
    No bezel
    Snapdragon 836
    6GB of RAM
    128GB UFS v2
    MicroSDXC UHS I
    3 camera ๐Ÿ“ท (Dual 16MP back & 8MP front)
    IP68 certified
    Li-Ion 3800 mAh battery

    All rumored of course ๐Ÿ˜Š ....but this is what the leaks are saying ๐Ÿ˜‰.....very good hardware just wish ๐ŸŒ  this upcoming device (Google Taimen) was the Surface Phone Pro.

    While I hope they support it, I seriously have my doubts. Microsoft makes a big deal about saying that they support N-1 for their OS, but they have stopped supporting WP8.1 (even though their Lifecycle page says that mainstream support hasn't ended yet) and there's some really frustrating ones that they just won't even look at, saying to upgrade.

    Spotify is on there.

    I think in 2018, Microsoft will only support charcoal, and conche seashells, because we will have gone through the apocalypse.

    Also, steve jobs will be resurrected as the anti-Christ.

    In 2018 the fashion will be sweatbands. They will be very in.

    I think it will have some updates in the app store and so on. But for Windows 10 Mobile itself I think its basicly over with no new features etc..
    And I think thats are also the reason we will not see any new hardware with Windows 10 Mobile. Microsoft might do a total reboot in 2018 with some new stuff. But none of the current devices will not be able to update to that.

    I am happy with my 950 XL. Don't care about other platforms at all. My strategy is to use 950 XL until next MS phone.

    iPhones and Androids are just ridiculous to me...
    Same plan here! Will likely buy a back up 950 XL just in case.

    Spotify, Opera Mini and other Apps even if they are not listed in the store you find them via there respective Webpages.
    Webapps are also a often unused source.

    Windows 10 Mobile should be supported alongside Windows 10 PC, afterall theyre practically the same and pretty much up-to-date... Also, the developer Rings are still active so why not..

    IMO, Windows 10 Mobile will close when Windows 11 or 12 on the PC arrives, so it should last into 2018, no issues.

    As I mentioned in a post a few months ago.. Ide goto iPhone before I go back to Android, and the only Android exception ide make would be an HTC..

    You should be fine for a good while yet, Plus MS will notify WP users of End of support Long before they cancel updates :)

    Spotify, Opera Mini and other Apps even if they are not listed in the store you find them via there respective Webpages.
    Webapps are also a often unused source.

    This is actually very true.. I use eBay online and EyeEm webpages all the time..

    Many people hate on WP for lack of apps... but to me, Android play / Apple store has so many apps because there can be anything from 5 - 50 of different apps all doing the same thing.. if you dont believe me... check out a simple "Notes" app... there are dozens of them, yet all you need is OneNote or Evernote..

    So if WP lacks an App... theres probably a website somewhere :)

    There are many Android / Apple users who hate on WP because either theyre bored and enjoy Trolling or theyve never used one and are just going off what theyve read online.. Try to ignore this and just enjoy your 950XL...

    IMO, util MS tell me otherwise.. the 950Xl is still being supported :)

    for the most part, yes. I actually refuse to install most apps if not needed. On my Android and Iphone I do not have the eBay app or Amazon app or the donut store app.

    However there are some which just are convenient such as my banking app (which IS on WP but doesn't work a well as on Android/ ios) and Starbucks.

    We're on the same page then because Im exactly the same... I think eBay on Android is so confusing to use and actually looks poorly rushed out.. Never used Amazon app either.. But has a great Lloyds (UK) online Banking app...

    All i use my Phone for is.. My Business / Music / Photos and Video / News(RSS) and if im REALLY bored.. the odd game.. Dont do FB or Twitter on my phone either, my lifes tough enough without following someone elses..

    Hence why Android is a bit of a waste on me... I just like a simple experience :)

    Pretty much the same for me. No social ***. Don't need Amazon or eBay, since I am using that pages once or twice a month on PC. Candy Crush Saga when I am bored...

    Still, I have a freedom to change ringtones and simple synchronization, unlike in iOS.
    And I have beautiful and fluid design, without dumb advertisement and lurking, unlike in Android.

    So for you MS doesn't have to advance mobile at all, correct? No need for a surface phone, just security updates to the current OS.

    Tell that to facebooks win10m developers. A web wrapper runs many times faster than their bloated POS.
