    Windows phone are best phones i think. Because they give u a different experience in phone.its stylish,different like iphone. Happy to know that windows is coming back in the market with its cshell for phone which will revolutionize the era of smartphones.

    Windows is great. Application is less but that's good to use. You will get latest software to operate and most importantly you will use same software as your PC has.

    I find it hard to come up with compelling reasons to purchase a Windows Phone at this point and time. Going by what I'm seeing on this site (WC) as of of late, any substantiated "good" news has dwindled considerably. But then, if you don't mind living with uncertainty or on the edge, by all means go for it. Just don't expect miracle and know what you are getting into.

    Every time I fire up one of my WPs it don't take very long to see its shortcomings, pretty much can do the basics but beyond that, we're left out in the cold. Out of all the phones I have ever owned WM has been the most problematic bar none, 10 has gotten better yet many little things still crop up that diminishes my experience. Apps that act unpredictably, loading, resuming and generally, the overall lack of fluidity with the OS.

    Then there's the instances (for me) when a browser cannot take up the slack if an app is unavailable. Experienced this on multiple occasions and becomes very frustrating seeing "sorry, your browser/OS is unsupported". To-date we have found no solution/alternatives to getting around this, plain and simply we're left without and no recourse to resolve. Can't think of another device of late that has ever left me in the lurch like that, and these sites I'm trying to access are not fly-by-night ones being very well established.

    If you were to buy a WP my reluctant recommendation would be the 950/950 XL.

    Existing phones (probably, but who knows really) won't get the "next iteration of W10M". But does that change that much if you like W10M as it is right now? Even if the support for Lumia 950/x3/IDOL 4S will stop with the next update to W10M, you still have the OS and will still get all the app updates

    I like my Windows phone because ird different. I don't like how everyone u ever come across is running ios or Android because I don't see the differences. Unlocking either an apple or Android and both home screen will look the same... Windows phone offers us that unique customisable tile screen. Also just the way these phones look and feel. Fair enough windows isn't as evolved as other OS it still worth looking into. Rumors and news of new windows devices have been going around and I guess we will have to wait and see

    I think I've stated many times on this site that Microsoft should've kept IE11 as an option like they do on PCs. There are a bevy of sites that don't function on Edge but were "workarounds" on WP8/8.1. Edge has improved, but it's still the weak link on Mobile.

    Use the coc coc or Monument browser or Opera (via opera.com) if you need Adblock and data sparing.

    If my 650 craps out now, I still plan on seeing if I can get a 950 for cheap. It really does look like W10 on ARM (WARM?) is going to usher in a new age of pocket PCs that work as phones, and I'll try to hold out until then. I just don't find Android that compelling.

    I've used both, they're not much better than Edge and only Monument works with Continuum.

    Edge can not turn Javascript off and can not remove Ads.
    Opera Mini (Download via opera.com) can remove ads (but sometimes fills ads in) and has Data Compression - Coc coc and Monument can turn Java Script off for speed and Security.
    Edge i use only if i need Javascript.

    Not new but the 950 has a removable battery, NFC, quick charging and a good camera.

    Thanks fatclue_98, I like Opera and have never tried Monument browser. I haven't had any problems soo far with using Edge browser on my 950XL yet but I will keep those in mind.

    I was still using my Lumia 920 up to 6 months ago when it died on me! I wanted to upgrade to the 950xl but this was not available in New Zealand and with rumors that a Surface Phone may appear I decided to hold out on an upgrade and use my father in laws hand-me-down Galaxy S5. I really miss my 920! Anyone that tells you Windows phone is complicated to use obviously has not used one. There are a few apps that I will really miss when I do go back to Windows Phone, such as 3 bank apps I use daily, but I am hoping that with universal apps that it may not be a problem! My main issue now is, this crappy S5 is also on its last legs, what do I move to?

    To answer the question of his thread, I would go with the 950xl if it is in your market place. The price has dropped and the support should still be there for a while!

    Lots of good reasons! I'm waiting for a phone with a roll-out, or fold up screen so that it is big enough to be a tablet PC and do real Word, Excel, and Powerpoint Work... With my old eyes !

    Don't the phones won't be getting any updates soon, my opinion is to wait for new flagship phone from microsoft, and it won't be a windows phone family type.

    Skype is much better now. I have used WhatsApp a few last days... it feels so ancient after Skype.

    Also, 950/XL is great replacement for Your 925.
