    I have a really large family and the day after Xmas we meet to exchange presents. So there comes a time when we do a group picture and all the phones come out, out of 41 Mobile devices two Windows Phones and one BlackBerry. My 68 year old cousin had a Samsung Omnia running windows 6.5. REPRESENT!

    Other than my mum, I have not encountered another living soul with a Windows Phone.

    Perhaps someone in my neck of the woods could open a local Windows Phone Appreciation Club chapter. lol

    Me and my family was traveling home for Xmas from Dublin two weeks ago. In the plane was sitting my wife holding 950, then me holding 930, and a strange guy holding 950. We looked each other and smile.
    what a chrismas spirit

    Yes!! I finally met someone in my local coffee shop with a bright red Lumia 720 including a red wireless charging shell. Got chatting and he told me that after 3 years of use he wasn't planning on changing any time soon as the phone was still in pristine condition and working without any problems. Was a guy in his 30's and changing OS was not an option.

    I haven't been that astute about the phones being used around me, so I may gave missed one, but I've never seen anyone else using a WP.

    1. I was spotted by a friend of a friend (a 25 year old) who as soon as he noticed I have the Lumia 950xl was very impressed for the high end device. He dropped his jaw when I showed the pics and videos but what Got him crazy was Windows HELLO and IRIS unlocking he thought it was only stuff of the movies 😊. He has an android midranger and claimed he would love to get a windows phone. By the way I see kind of one in ten people in NY with a WP...
    2. Those watching SHERLOCK might have noticed that on the current season 4, Watson uses a 950 and shots of incoming calls to Mycroff are of WP8.1 incoming calls probably a 830 or 930

    My friend at work has a 1520, but only because it used to be mine. Nobody else, except me, has a Windows phone where I am based.

    If you watch the TV series "Bull" I have seen 2 occasions of Bull using a 950 to Skype his girl friend and to make calls. Maybe Microsoft is a sponsor? Love my 950 XL.

    In my office its sea of Android, the odd iPhone here & there. Just me, my missus and a colleague sporting WP.

    There used to be 5 users, but the 720 & 920 gave up on their owners

    My sis in law just got a 525
    (running W8.1/Denim).. small but really really zippy!!

    Here it is next to her brother's 720, and my wife's 1520...
    There is suppose to be 640 around, but it in the shop for servicing
    Amongst a sea of bland B&W or faux metal android/apples.... yellow easily stands out..

    Yeah, the NCIS series seems to always have them running around.
    I revisited this thread, because I saw someone at my son's pre-school graduation running a windows phone, taking pics. I couldn't make out the model, but it had a clear case on it, and I could see the windows logo. I tried to track him down afterward, but didn't spot him.
    Of course, last night reinforced my dislike of my current 950, since it decided not to save one of the videos I took. "Oops, looks like something went wrong!" Yeah, I bought a 950... Such BS, this is the second time it failed to record an important video for me. Once on device storage, once on memory card storage, plenty of room on both. The only common thing between them was they were over a minute long. Unacceptable.

    Although I an no longer using a Windows phone I was with the girlfriend today at a diagnostic facility and the older gentleman sitting next to us was using an HP Elite X3 in a beat up case (not sure what case it was). I first noticed the live tiles then the silver ring at the bottom of the phone. Very interesting to see because I very rarely see any Windows phones in the wild much less a non advertised HP Elite X3.

    I did notice he was struggling to open facebook, terrible opening time still on the official facebook app I take it. Seemed like he tried 3 or 4 times and then just gave up.

    His struggle experience aside, that is very cool! I have never seen one outside of the internet before lol.

    At one time most of us here were using Windows phone, but now I'd guess that most of us are not.

    I'm still using my 640 and 735. Sadly, I had to upgrade the 735 from WP8.1 to W10M. :(
