    Welp... This is it, I'm jumping ship to Android and leaving my 950 XL in the dust. It's been a fun journey on Windows Phone/Mobile/Whatever for the last 10 years or so but the time has come to an end. I wanted to go down with the ship but I just couldn't take it anymore. My wife got a Samsung Galaxy a couple weeks ago and I have been playing around with, it's just better... it's just better. I ordered a Sony EXPERIA XA2 Ultra and am ready to dive into Android. Good luck to everyone who is still hanging on, you are troopers. See you all on the flipside... Eventually....

    Just a matter of time before the inevitable happens when one is hanging onto hope w/Windows Phone. I left some time ago and gained so much more than just apps, consistency and stability were the biggies plus the piece of mind that what I have today will be there for me tomorrow.

    Anyhow, all the best in your new endeavours!

    I am sticking with my 950XL so far, and do not plan to change it just yet. If eventually it comes to change, it definitely wont be Bugdroid.

    my sentiments as well... but its still far far off in the future... and it'll be Android without bugs (now you get what I mean by far far off in the future!!! hahaha)

    I moved to Android last year, after about 7 years with Windows Phones.
    I certainly wouldn't class it as 'Bugdroid'.
    It runs Android 7.1.2 and is a lot more stable than my Windows devices were (and I loved my Lumia 930).

    For the folks sticking with WM, why? I just find that apps I use most don't work that well (netflix, pandora, hulu, edge) and the OS seems to be getting less stable by the day.

    I'm using Excel & Powerpoint and continuum.. a lot. There is absolutely no alternative out there

    And the camera on my 2yr old 950XL, is still a able match against current new phones.

    I do fair bit of photo editing on my phone. Using a cheap capacitive stylus pen with my favourite Fantasia Painter app... A killer combination

    Next question?

    I have a rare condition called CephaloAndroiditis acuta (possibly I am the only person in the world) which means, I get sick even when I think of an Android device. Writing this sentence down, and also reading the previous posts, made me go to the toilet several times... Yikes.
    I have owned iPhone 3G and 4, and got bored with it. For me, Windows has absolutely no alternative. I will use my 950XL till it can be used, and then sadly will move back to Apple. I refuse to have a bug-lag-whatsoever-droid and thats it.
    Now, excuse me, I gotta empty my bowels yet again.

    Well, friends, I finally reached my limit of watching WM wither and die. As much as I love my 950 XL and its camera and Live Tiles, today I ordered a Pixel 2. I'm tired of waiting for whatever Microsoft has planned for Andromeda. The plans for Andromeda seem to be constantly pushed further and further back as well as evolving into something of interest mainly to early adopters. I have been a Microsoft early adopter in the past. But those days are behind me now. I've learned my lesson.

    I came to Windows Mobile from Android because of the camera on the Nokia Lumia 1020. And then I grew to love the whole environment. I'm hoping the combination of the Pixel 2 camera and the Microsoft Launcher will ease the transition back to Android. The level of support Google provides for its phones is similar to Microsoft and iOS and superior to the lackluster support I experienced with the Samsung and HTC phones I used during my first Android period and apparently their support has not improved.

    I really don't want to give up my Live Tiles, but at this point there's really no choice. What I've seen of the Android imitations just don't fill the bill, and I think they'd just be depressing reminders of what Live Tiles can be.

    The lovely Apple products really aren't a viable option for me, because I don't want to live in such a restricted environment. So Android, here I come.

    If you're just now leaving, then you went down with the ship a long time ago.

    Congratulations on not torturing yourself any longer.
