    One year ago, i had the same feeling with you. But till now, it's a huge difference. More and more people are using WP, you can see that through Nokia sale reports and MSFT statitics. Otherwise, i've seen a lot friends of mine using WP too. Although WP seems to be not popular like Android and iOs, but there will be another rearrangement of the three biggest OS in the huge smartphone cake someday. It will be true at all.

    Personally, I own a 8X and a 920. There are two other coworkers at the job with 8Xs (one likes hers for the most part, the other is "meh" about it), they got theirs independently from my feedback. One of my dear friends owns a Ativ S, we got his dad a 920, and I just bought my dad a 925 from t-mobile.

    Which one do you use more? Thinking about toying with an 8x because the form factor is so cool. Have 920 as well.

    why this thread is still needed?
    i mean, nowadays, i see win-phones everywhere.
    i found many people using WP whom i would never have imagined. when i asked them,
    they all replied almost same, Excellent battery backup, very simple and has everything we need in a day.
    apart from them, there are lot of people using WP with various reasons.
    i do accept that WP are few in numbers, but definitely not scarce anymore.
    in my family of 15, there are 3 WP, 8 androids, 2 non-smartphones( thats my granny & aunty), and 2 non mobile (thats school going cousins).
    in friends group, 2 WP, 2 Android, 3 iPhones.

    I suppose this thread was never needed, but is just a way to see how much (or little) WP is gaining steam...

    I still only know two people with Windows Phones, and have only seen one other WP being used by someone 'in the wild'. Most of the phones I see on a day-to-day basis are iPhones. WP may be growing but it still has a long way to go, but this thread is encouraging that at least it is picking up some steam!

    When I bought it, I was the first. One of the reasons for buying it was it was unique.
    When ppl see Samsung, its like, eh another Samsung. Very common. Bt when they saw my phone, they asked me that could they see it. :)

    I have seen 0 WP owners up to this point but have seen a strong handful of Surface owners. The handful of Surface owners who also pulled out a phone it was not a WP. Go figure.

    I have seen lately quite a few more 520s over here, around 5 last week. Of my inmediate family nobody has one but I might just have convinced my cousin to get one.

    where do you live, all of you guys?

    i am in India, and definitely WP is not so scarce here. at least 5 -10 % people are using it here. 520 was a real hit, but i can see many 720s n 920s.
    at least 5 people (non-family) have bought 720 after suggested by me, and they are happy with it.

    I live in Hawaii, a international tourism destination & I've only seen 2 in the wild. The city I live in has 3 cruise ships a week stop here, plus the ironman world champs, plus the regular tourists. We are out quite often & never see any. I am the only of my friends that have or even heard of Windows Phone. My daughter has a 822 & can't wait to ditch it for an iPhone.

    I saw a few people buy the 1520 at the Ala Moana MS Store. While there I also saw a lady happily upgrade

    to a WP. I've seen a woman at the mall with a yellow 1020. The minority for sure, but they're out there.
