    If you're looking for a good windows phone, I'd strongly recommend one of the newer models like the HP Elite X3 or a Lumia 950 or 950 XL. By now they aren't all too new, but they should at least have better support than the 1020.

    HP, Alcatel, and MS all have phones that can be purchased, although they are aging quickly. If you can wait, I'd suggest waiting until new devices are released. When will that be? Nobody here really knows for sure, but rumors suggest that new mobile devices are in the works.
    If you're ok with the state of Windows Mobile and you like the UI, you can't really go wrong with the three I recommended above. If you like taking pictures, the 950 series is the best of the three. Good luck with your decision.

    I know it had an impressive camera, but do you really want a phone released in July of 2013? Not trying to bash windows mobile I just can't recommend anyone buy a phone that old for a daily driver.

    hey welcome aboard! As long as you know the limitations of the devices they can still be really solid offerings. Plus, they can be picked up for pretty cheap these days. Good luck with your search and let us know when you find one!

    Anyone coming from Android will miss a lot of apps if that is your go to. if you can get by with websites running in your browser then you'll have less issues making the switch.

    Welcome welcome. It's a beautiful UI, with some great in built OS features.

    However the phones released originally with windows 8.1 mobile don't run as well on windows 10 mobile, as the ones released with windows 10 mobile.

    I'd recommend the 950/950XL or the x3. The 950's have the classic Lumia camera quality, and are good for that, and the x3, not quite so much, but its a beast of a phone, and has a very solid build quality.

    The 950's do have a plastic back (makes em really light), but if you don't like that there are all sorts of great covers you can get. Like the imak, or mozo backs.

    I'm sure you'll enjoy the experience.

    Just a thought - maybe tether your Android phone to your windows phone so you can still use a few apps. I'm lucky enough to have a work SIM in my 950xl and my personal SIM currently in my iphone.

    If you want, maybe get a 950xl so you can try continuum. While still a "1.0" release, it has great potential.

    I agree on that. The lack of apps is unbelievable but you still wants to jump on board I recommend the Alcatel Idol or X3 by their specs and mostly the good reviews.
