    I will use WIndows Phone 8 pretty much as long as they keep coming up with updates. I don't see a reason to stop. I use many different phones so I always have room for a Windows phone in my pocket. :)

    I am interested in smooth, stable OS, and big screen. Only Windows Phone has it. Sticking with it for now.

    I'll have to decide that when my 520 breaks, which will probably be in 5 years.

    Otherwise I don't plan on moving on until then.

    Originally I was getting sort of meh with windows phone tbh.

    But since getting my 1520, I fell in love with the OS all over again. Its the same software but the big screen is a welcomed new experience.

    For me I will be with windows phone at least until late summer or early fall next year. If Nokia and Microsoft have not come out with anything that wows me, I may wind up switching to the iPhone if It has a bigger screen.

    But we are getting apps faster now and I don't feel as left out anymore. So for now I am happy where I am. I just need Microsoft to start stepping their game up.....

    I will have to stick with Lumia 820 for almost a 1,5 year but what i will do than ? I do not know :D. I bought WP only becuse of Nokia . I will sit and wait to see what MS can do on their own. If phones will be good i will might stick with WP if not I will buy a Nexus device. I still miss my Symbian Belle :D.

    I've actually tried two times to go to android and once for iOS and come back every time. Yes, android has more apps but the OS experience was horrible. Freezes, random restarts, app crashes, and terrible slowdowns frustrated me at every turn. Stability and speed are worth a lot to me...and wp8 is the best that's I've used. iOS was better than android but I hated the lack of hardware choice and the apple lock in that's demanded of you. So couldn't be happier - nor could the wife who wouldn't give up wp8 unless they discontinued it.

    Android is only for high end devices because it needs high specs but wp8 is for cheaper phones . If you have a high budget then I recommend to go for a android phone and not WP for now. Hope to see a big improvement on 2014

    And with Nokia coming out with flagship phones that are the cheapest these days among its competitors, I think that just cements their place as the budget phone market...

    I have no plans whatsoever in moving from WP to another platform. It just works for me. The overall speed of the OS, Live Tiles, Office hub, SkyDrive integration, calendar and contact sync with Windows 8 etc. I also use Family Room a lot now. This just makes WP the best mobile OS for me. There are certainly things Microsoft can do to make it better and improve on current features, but I've tried the competition and know I'm happy where I currently am.

    I've had the 620, 820 and lastly the 920.Unfortunately, MS has let me down by not implementing usefull features in its updates, so I've moved on and got a Nexus 4.I'm so so sorry to say but I will not return to WP after spending 2 months with the Nexus.Since I got it, I went form Android 4.3 to 4.4 and 2 days ago to 4.4.2.Each and every update made dramatic improvements to my device, things that I was expecting especially from MS and they never delivered.With the last update, the Nexus 4 is faster, has much better battery life and the new UI looks very fresh.
    I still have the 920 so I often compare them side by side, to see how both platforms compete.(especially since they are both the same age and generation).

    Being a microsoft fan and the fact that I dont like google team behaviour, I dont think I LL switch to android ever, so the choices are ios or windows phone, its like 2002 world cup match between Brazil(apple) and Japan (windows phone) .

    I've made it a goal to use at least most of the OSes some time ago, from Palm OS, to iOS, webOS, Windows Mobile, Android, and now Windows Phone

    Unlike the rest it has never let me down, awkward pauses are minimal, love the design, and its unique compared to my peers. Its not perfect, but its the best fit for me, especially as I have been transitioning to MS services even before picking up my 920.

    I expect to be here for a bit.

    I probably would stay with Windows Phone, since there is not much I care about. I wont use iOS or android so Windows Phone would be my choice. I dont need much so its perfectly fine, even if it was the super more features in a phone ever (since some people seem to think its soo behind competition). I would still use it since I like the look of it, Im used to it, I rarely use my phone so it wont break easily. and it would work to make calls and some video games and listen to music.

    I want a notification center and a call recorder,filders, i want to change my background in whatsapp,desktop etc. I'm bored to have the same look in all aps,sms or whatsapp. If i don't get some of this i will go to iOs.

    lol... if you want all, that should I ask WHY you got windows phone then? I know Windows Phone will get new features and all, but why did you buy it in first place if you could have bought an android phone for example and have those features already if you want and *need* them so much?
    I just find it funny, since you dont know what the future will be, but you know the present and you knew windows phone didnt have all that stuff, and you have no idea if next update will bring it.
    next time I would recommend buy what fits your needs, so you dont have to worry if you will get features you want or not and when they will come, instead of thinking you will stop using something in coming months if you dont get what you want. I mean nobody would miss you but it sounds like a waste of money and time.

    you know, the logical thing, if something dont do what you want or need, you could just get something else that does it straight away, instead of waiting like if it was the end of the world, and/or expect something to come (in this case update) to change it, since you dont even know if it will come or not.

    Windows is future, but i hate the present..its disappointing..

    I regularly recorded my lectures through android phone, than i sold it thinking wp has better media.. But i am doomed, not a single recorder is upto mark.. Its is not that windows phone lacks hardware.. Surprisingly, recording on whatsapp and video recording is just awesome.. Microsoft dint made an inbuilt recording app?? Nor even nokia is making any efforts to make any stable recording apps.. Nokia makes crap nokia chat beta, which is a waste, why cant they make one stable recorder?? I wonder how WhatsApp and video recording has flawless audio quality recording?? I lost so many lectures without recording, i am doomed.. I have to attend lecture more 12 months.. Recording audio was only option as later i can recall.. But basic things are missing in windows phone.. I tried almost all apps in stores.. Poor quality of recording, it often crashed for long recording... My class lectures are long, 5-6 hours.. I can't miss recording for a single minute.. But... Leave.. M very sad.. Sorry guys..

    Moreover, MSFT is least bothered about Non-USA region..

    Scroogled campaign disappointed me about Microsoft behaviour. Microsoft choose to cut competitor instead of competing..

    Lack of quality apps, totally unstable, beta , betas and betas...currently and totally depressed due to over decision of switching to Lumina/Window phone, can't buy new phone either.. I have spend all savings for my classes...

    Just a better recorder could made me happy..

    First and last windows phone, Lumia 625...

    I'm waiting for WP 8.1. If that does not fix certain issues I have(pdf handling, XBOX music woes, etc.) then I'm off to try something else.

    I will stick to Windows Phone, but BB10 now has third party Instagram and Snapchat apps. Kind of interested in having a keyboard again. So may have a WP8 and a Q10. Also kind of intrigued by the Jolla phone.

    Here's an interesting turn which may impact Windows Phone use in the future.. Especially for me.

    I'm a happy owner of a L1020, past user of L920 and L900. I really like the devices but a recent policy change at my employer my impact my decision to remain on the platform. We are implementing a BYOD policy at work but only iOS and Android devices are supported. If I choose to let the company install security software on my smartphone, I can get my work emails, calendar, contacts, etc on my device. Most people would call that a curse but if if you sign up for the program, you get financially compensated to the tune of about $1100 a year. So in other words, I can switch to an android or iOS device and get paid an extra $1100 / year to do it......

    I'm not too thrilled about having all the work stuff on my personal phone but walking away from $1100/year is enough to think about moving away.... I'm not interested in carrying two devices as that is what I currently do. I have my L1020 for my personal stuff and a company supplied blackberry for work. The new policy would have you turn in your blackberry and then you get the extra cash... Something to think about??

    How many of you would give up $1100/year to stick with your current WP?
