    as if the navigation solution would put me on another system. was this the reason you joined WP in the first place.
    With all the flaws and problems so far.. I am with Microsoft windows phone systems since 2005 so yes.. I will stay with them. have faith.. :) will just take a few years till they start to catch up with the market

    I love Nokia's hardware, but the lack of apps means I need two phones.
    No XCSOAR, tophat, Viewranger, etc. And I know from emailling the developers that this apps will never appear on WP.

    I just switched over from BlackBerry and I'm happy with WP. As always, I look at everything when I buy a new phone, but I'll likely be staying with WP in the future too.

    Are you talking about staying with WP even though HERE is now available on Android? This would assume that for those users, HERE was the last thing keeping them on WP. For me, I moved from WP to Android over a year ago, although I didn't totally drop WP. I keep a couple around and use them, but not as my primary device. HERE was an advantage to me, but it wasn't enough to be worth what I felt were bigger trade-offs.

    I installed HERE on my Nexus 5 a couple weeks ago. I love it!

    Tough call Imo. No real flagship has even been mentioned by Microsoft (930 doesn't could as its almost a year old already under the name icon) my contracts up soon and im really considering the z3. If a new flagship was announced I might be tempted to stay but currently nothing and im not getting the ****ty 930 (tiny upgrade from the 920)

    Aren't they only licensed by Samsung so far?
    You couldn't pay me to tolerate again the mess that is TouchWiz.

    930 not enough why ._. it's quiet close with Z3 actually expect 4 storage and RAM

    32 GB is enough actually

    I'm still pretty happy with my 920 ,but I use Skype all the time and so Microsoft needs to up its game with this app. I will wait till 2015 and see what new phones they have and how it's going with Skype ...

    Off-topic but does the Skype app take forever to load if you tap a Notification to open it on your 920? It started doing this on my 925 and I am wondering if this is a widespread issue or something?

    App selection will not be the reason i decide to leave WP behind. Hardware will be the reason.
    I might have to look to a new carrier because T-mobile is not providing any reason to keep WP fans on their service.

    Not sure my contract is up next September going to have to see what Windows is up to at that point, it isn't the Apps or games it would be what hardware is available at that point

    Already left and Here Maps wasn't the reason. I've been a paid version Co-pilot user for years and have no need for something else.

    We'll one navigation application can't make or break your experience with an OS, I doubt people cling onto their Windows Phones just because of HERE Maps, because there are lots of other reasons why Windows Phones are great.

    With that said, a key part of why I left Windows Phone was "navigation" in general, HERE Maps is great but if your country isn't supported(like mine wasn't), tough luck because the rest of the navigation apps on Windows Phone are in short, terrible.

    I've been using Sygic for as long as I can remember, it's a paid navigation application on Android that offers great coverage for most countries and works offline.

    HERE Maps can be installed on any Android smartphone, the HERE Maps for Android does seem like a better version than the Windows Phone one, but I still have the same problem: MY COUNTRY ISN'T SUPPORTED. 😧

    On the fence. Have been happy with my Lumia 925, but it is showing it's age and I really don't see any flagship devices that I want. That, and the lack of apps and app quality compared to iOS and Android is starting to bug me more and more. The slow camera too. Going back and forth on this topic every day. Will probably stay, but ...I realize that MS is trying and I applaud their effort, but my enthusiasm has subsided lately. Then again, it's just a phone :-)
