    So all I got from that OP is you are bragging about how many WP you had. I want to chime in too..
    Samsung Focus
    HTC Titan
    Lumia 800
    Lumia 900
    Lumia 710
    Lumia 920
    Lumia 925
    Lumia 720
    Lumia 1020
    Lumia 1320
    Lumia 630

    ​I win.
    Ha ha That was not the point at all. I understand how it might have looked like bragging, but that was not my intention. I was simply trying to demonstrate my WP loyalty. I did include a sarcasm clause at the end of m the post hoping to lesson the negative reactions.
    Glad to see you are a big WP supporter though.

    Yeah, but I think of it as more of a class thing. People who prefer Apple products feel that they are in some sort of exclusive group where they are better than others who prefer Android or Windows.
    As I agree with you it WAS like that years ago, as Apple had some good marketing and make that image but, in the marketplace as I see it, it's faded. What you have now is the fanboys, the Noobs and the clueless (not all 100% dumb people, they are just clueless on mobile phones and someone they know has one, so the "default" smartphone)who get iPhones.

    That high end feel that the iPhone used to have is gone, It died with a lot of innovation with Steve Jobs. Trust me, I hated the guy (stories I read he was an a$$hole) but, no question, I respect what he did to the mobile marketplace and how it woke it up. RIP

    I wouldn't count the amount of phones as a win.....more a sign of a Tech Junkie ;-) or someone who likes to have a new phone each day lol

    I would look at Length of time in the trench of the phone/os war.........

    My start with a semi-smart phone was Windows Mobile 2003 SE on an Audiovox SMT 5600 (HTC Typhoon rebranded).....however my very first Windows based phone was a device that was never even thought to be worth support by software makers. A Casio BE300 PDA running Windows CE 3.0. What a fight that was to get a CF GSM Card to run with an old MIPS chip device....when even Audiovox wouldn't help with support for a device it never wanted it's software to work on.
    picture_008.jpg

    Pocket PC Phone Edition
    Then Windows CE 4.0
    Windows Mobile 5
    Windows Mobile 6.1 and 6.5
    Windows Phone 7 and 7.8
    Now Windows Phone 8 and 8.1

    I think I have carried the banner of Windows Phone long enough to retire a Happy camper from the o/s war and relax in peace with my Windows Phone in hand knowing I did all I could to bring attention to the cause :-)

    A well-armed gang of WP forum thugs/fanboys/fangirls has formed ready to attack or troll the ios and Android forums. I mean, obviously, things are looking up for the little os that could that is WP. So, after juggling all of this progress, I've decided not to leave Windows Phone. It's definitely not the best phone os (opinion), but each Windows Phone that I've owned has fit my needs...and that's all that really matters. I'm sure my sarcasm will be overlooked by a few people, so I apologize in advance..
    To me this is quite simple; Until IOS and Android deliver a better user experience for my needs, I will continue using WP as my daily device.
    I'm not a loyalist or supporter, and I'm not calling Microsoft my religion but WP is definitely the best phone os for me right now. I even find the others inferior to WP because they don't give me what I want, the way I want it. Still I will occasionally and gladly recommend both Android and IOS phones depending on who's asking because I know this is a subjective opinion and a matter of taste, image and needs.

    I wonder why you find WP not to be the best os in your opinion when it fits your needs? Why not go for the best.

    Anyway, thanks for your post. It was refreshing reading

    I guess what I was trying to say was that it wasn't the best....as in it's really impossible for a device to be considered the best overall because everybody's wants, needs, and opinions are so different. My 1520 is the best phone I've ever owned. It is the best for me and fits all of my needs. I guess in my attempts to keep things lighthearted I got my thoughts jumbled. I think Android and iPhone are great operating systems, but they just aren't for me. My wife, however, loves her S4, and I'm cool with that. I wish she would come over to the WP side of the force, but she can only use Android or iPhone where she works. I wonder how many other WP users are in that predicament???

    Once 8.1 breaks out and is fully updated with the Corporate security fixes in place, I would bet dollars to donuts most IT people will be shocked how well a Windows Phone will fit and set up in that environment !!!!

    I'm kinda wondering if I should go to more Microsoft products like windows phone and surface pro 3 because I'm liking MS products more and more. Right now I'm using mostly Apple stuff like iPad, iPhone, and Apple TV. But I do use PC. How much better would the integration be on windows phone or surface?

    My first smartphone was a Samsung Galaxy S Vibrant, I liked the looks but didn't enjoy O/S, My next Phone was a Nokia Lumia 900 I was just so intrigued by the simple smooth O/S that I felt like this was home and where I belonged, then in Feb. of this year I picked up the Nokia Lumia 1520, I was really fine with my 900, but I had taken stock with what I use a phone for, the least is actual phone calls, so the larger screen made sense to me. and I have been really pleased with Nokia build ever since day one. and I point that out to everyone that says Ive never seen anyone who owned a phone like yours. I have not downloaded 8.1 on my phone, I'm patiently waiting for the formal release. but my Windows phone is still the best experience I have ever had on any o/s, so their is no need to change. Hail Hail Microsoft.

    It sounds like you're heavily invested in the Apple ecosystem. If you're running 8.1 on your PC, you'd find WP looks very much like it. Microsoft's goal is to get us to a universal OS in which a dev can build an app and it will run on Windows PCs, tablets, and phones. We're already seeing some apps, like Reading List, that sync the PC and WP content. Outlook desktop, web-based, and WP content is, of course, synchronized, including contacts, calendars, and task lists. But you probably have something similar on the Apple side of the street.

    Integration? What are you wanting to do? You already have tremendous integration amongst all your Apple devices. Are you looking to swap out your tablet and phone? If so, you can sync settings across devices with a single MS ID login. If you're looking to stream wirelessly from your Surface to your TV, I believe there are apps for that and with an Xbox, you can use your Surface as a keyboard and screen controller. As for integration with Apple devices... probably not.

    I'll be 3 years on this HTC Radar this December, my first WP. My next is more than likely than Nokia McLaren. And my next 2 after that in 6 years or so after are more than likely WP 9 & 10 beasts. I'll give it two monster WP's later, and then we'll talk about jumping to any other platform. I was a Blackberry guy before this. :)

The "Jerry Maguire", only worked in the movie and nobody cares if you don't like your phone. You made the decision to come to WP, you can find your way back to whatever herd you wish to be with.

    My 1st was the HTC Arrive, now sporting, a Samsung Ativ S Neo with 8.1 preview on it until the update comes out. Not seeing myself move anytime soon. Also waiting for BBM to be released for WP.

    Has anyone noticed anything like this:
    I was riding my bicycle back from the mailbox a few blocks away.

    I noticed a flaming fireball entering the atmosphere.
    When I retrieved my Windows phone out of my pocket to snap a photo aiming at the fire ball the space debris shifted course slightly to the West.
    I believe this may have diverted a regional disaster because the Windows phone may have a hidden feature affecting gravity which may have forced the object off course sending it into the Pacific ocean.

    Has anyone seen anything on the news about a space object splashing down between Japan and California?

    After 1 year on the WP platform I will....well...I don't know. I left the Android world and replaced Google services with the MS equivalents. For the most part it is okay - don't get me started on XBM though...

    Missing a few key apps. Overall sub par app quality. Good device (L925). Waiting on the Onedrive/XBM locker service. If that doesn't happen anytime soon I am gone. I will go with the platform that works with me not against me.

    That LG G3 sure looks nice...
    I just sold my 1520, tired of waiting for the screen issue to be fixed, and picked up a G3. Just an amazing device if you are considering it. I will buy another WP when they have a 5.5" screen, but for now, this thing is crazy fast, battery lasts 2 days, and the screen is amazing.

    I don't know. I do like the OS of windows phone a lot. Main thing are apps. While it has most if what I use, I'm concerned with app support as well. A lot of apps I use haven't been updated for months. Another thing is I'm still unsure what direction the OS is going to go in light of recent rumors.

    As far as replacing my iPad, I'm not sure because it seems like the surface pro 3 seems to be the only thing is like and that would act as a laptop as we'll. there just doesn't seem to be a lot of windows apps.

    In regards to your integration question, I was mainly talking about if all the Microsoft services would sync across apple hardware well? Like calendar , mail , onenote , one drive, and etc.

    One of the reasons why I ditched my iPad mini was that I've only seen two types of people who use Apple stuff: the n00bs and the fanboys.
    When I purchase a device, I don't worry about what other people are using. I certainly wouldn't stop using a device because I thought it was popular with "noobs" or "fanboys".

    well, it hasn't been 4 years for me.

    but nearly 2, that i have switched from a feature phone, to windows lg optimus,
    running windows 7.8

    i don't need pure touchscreens, so i will never switch to 8/8.1 unless they add
    a hardware keyboard.

    also, i don't care about apps, games, or the camera.

    as long as the phone works, and it can do text messages i'm good.
    also, the music player is rock solid, and works almost as well as
    my previous zune HD player.

    so until this phone breaks in a couple of years, i'll stick with windows phone.

    i'm not worried about android or ios, all my programs are windows based,
    and i have a surface pro.

    i'll stick with windows regardless of what changes occur.

    later

    I have always been a big fan of Microsoft since the days of MSDOS. I had Android phones, they were ok but I always felt that something was missing and when I switched to WP, I felt like I came home, very comforting feeling and it has everything I need/want and felt nothing missing like I felt with Android. I HATE apple, never used them and never will.
    Why you hate apple? if you never used any of apple things?

    I mean it's one of the reasons. iOS 7 screws up performance, and the screen is just terrible for its price.

    I received my 1020 in May this year, as a gift from my fiancee, for my birthday. I wanted that phone since it came out for it's camera (i previously owned an N8). The camera is amazing (as you all know) and windows phone fits all my needs. I didn't upgrade to 8.1DP and still waiting for the official release and my phone is rock solid and runs smooth. I belive WP is here to stay, and i can see the potential it has. I can't wait to play around with WP 8.1 and all the apps for it. I wouldn't change the 1020 with anything on the market today.
