    saw a white 930 exactly like mine yesterday at my classroom. Another student also swapped his 630 for a black 830. Not rarely i also hear WP notifications sounds around.

    WP is really catching on in Brazil, especially with iPhones priced ridiculously high. If we had a Snapchat app (not essential for me, but insanely popular among young people here) i believe it would help turn any other OS into old news in no time.

    Aaand saw another WP today, a 640 this time, at work. Looks really cool. The owner told me he was looking for good battery life for GPS and that it sounded good on this aspect.

    A friend of mine (who i sold my old 925 to) bought his mother a WP too. I just caught a glimpse of it, but looks like a 430.

    It's great to see these things everywhere 😁

    There are now 4 WP users where I work. Two 640's and two 830's (one is mine) -- sold my other 830 to a co-worker (first smart phone for him).

    Edit: Forgot to mention Paul (another co-worker) sports a Lumia 925. So that makes 5 Windows mobiles in the shop where I work. Also, got another one interested in buying my personal 830 (I'll use the M8 till I get ahold of a 950)

    Popped in to my local Carphone Warehouse yesterday and spoke to a sales rep about getting a cheap full-screen phone for my 70+ father. He did try pushing me to a dumbphone but when I said I wanted full screen keys, said he'd either recommend Windows Phone or iPhone for "their ease and simplicity". I asked about Android, he said they're too complicated for a basic user...

    He promptly whipped out his Lumia 930 and a Samsung Edge, and said he used the Windows Phone for daily work driver and used the Samsung for games and other things that aren't on WinPhone. Though he did have a massive scratch running down the 930, which he blamed on his kid!

    So nice to see a mobile sales rep understand a customer need and not simply push people onto a given OS based on their own bias or preference...

    Yes. Recently I've seen many people with WP. The 535 and the 640 XL have sold a lot

    Months before I ever had a WP, but after I had looked into them and decided to save up for one, I went to Busch Gardens on Halloween with my girlfriend and saw a random guy in one of the lines talking on a Lumia 1020. I also had a friend in another state who had bought a Lumia 520, but he switched back to Android because of an app that didn't work well on WP. Other than them, I convinced my mom and her now ex boyfriend to get Lumias when I bought my first one, but they both quickly went to Android after finding WP to be too confusing for them.

    I've seen a few people with Windows Phones in my life but very very few. As many as i can count on my hands.

    The market share over here appears to be something like

    iOS 80%
    Android 19%
    Windows 1%

    I saw one a few days ago, not sure the model.
    The guy said his company just switch from Blackberry, and his IT department said Windows had the best security after BB.

    Oddly enough for the past couple months I've seen someone once a week with a windows phone. Mainly Lumia 635s. I did see a few Icons and someone with a 640 XL. Saw a woman at the airport with the Samsung Ativ SE.

    I've seen plenty around town. Mostly 530's and 640's. About half of the people I know have a Windows phone.

    I see lumias daily. At least 15% of smartphone users have lumia devices.

    I use public transport daily and every time I always hear the distinct message tone for lumia in the vehicle. I already know 3 of my friends who have lumia 1020 and so do I.

    MS should really invest more effort in developing markets where people actually prefer lumias to other brands. The developed world market won't be good but the developing world has a huge potential. Majority of people had Nokia phones and they want to go with the same brand since they're loyal customers.

    MS need to make sure that support exists for lumia users in the developing nations such as availability of chargers, usb cables, covers, customer care centers, accessories and lumias of various colours, not just the black model

    Plenty, actually.

    Whether I'm at the university or working my second job, Lumia 520s and 635s are mf'ing EVERYWHERE. To a rarer extent I'll see 1020s, 920s, Icons, and 1520s too... and an increasing number of 640s.

    At my primary job the IT leads all seem to have formed a 1520 guild, and two of the people I trained this quarter were packing WPs - one with a 520, the other which had an Icon with a cracked screen (who is apparently an avid user here!).

    Obviously Android still has the largest mobile presence (with iPhone being an extremely distant second), but it's become lots easier to find other WP users in the wild compared to two years ago.
