    Thanks friend! I give it my best shot. Team work is always good! You are always welcome on threads that I'm helping with! Are we getting close to 150K?? LMAO!
    I don't know any thing about phones, and at the moment I'm not interested in learning about phones; but that could chance any moment!

    Well, I'm busy freezing my posterior off in Minnesota. It is only 17F outside right now and the wind is blowing at a pretty decent clip...

    Was going to ask how is it there. Wow that's cold. No snow yet, right?

    So my contribution for now, aside from replies, is a phone rant, which may or may not reoccur

    Of course, of course.

    I got a Lumia 650 2 weeks ago and I'm having second thoughts about it now. I like it but that battery life is bad for me. If I could change something, it would be that. I have serious battery anxiety with that phone.

    On the other hand, the 640's camera became worse with W10M and it feels slower to me? It seems like something is always broken and I have to hard reset to fix it. Doing that a lot is tiring and I don't get how people are okay with weekly hard resets. Somehow the Weather app broke and I have two of them (one that is a blank tile) so here we go with the reset again soon. After said reset, I'll probably try to use it as a phone for a day.

    As for the 950, battery life was also bad there for me as well (even after the AU), when I had one. Still had battery anxiety with it too, even though the cameras are great. Even so, the thought does occasionally cross my mind to try it again, since there have been 2 updates since I last tried it. At the same time, is there really a point?

    Also got a 550 2 months ago that the honeymoon phase has ended for. The size was really my favorite thing about it, even though the cameras are sufficient, but awful in non-ideal lighting situations. Battery life on that isn't great either, but can't remember if it gave me anxiety or not (this is what happens when you try too many phones haha).

    There seems to be no Windows Phones that are 5.2" or smaller that meet my battery life and camera desires. I hate just dealing with stuff if I have control of it. The funny thing is that my other non Windows phones meet my battery life needs well. I'm only choosing to deal in the name of being a fan, which sounds crazy

    I have too many phones, and I hate it actually. I just like having one of each.

    It's too cold, frozen flurries from sky being blown around everywhere but no sticking snow yet.

    950 battery life has been okay for me. 640 on WP8.1.1 was the king of battery life. A sub 3000 mAh battery with a qHD screen doesn't cut it.
    Right now I would argue Moto Z Play and LeEco Pro3 are the reigning champs for battery life and the 640XL on WP8.1.1 😁

    Wow. In your case, not sure if the snow not sticking is a good thing. To me, it would be haha.

    I can believe and agree with all of that. I wish that there was a "baby" Play for people like me. I totally agree about the 640's battery life on 8.1. I think about flashing back occasionally too to that, but then I'll miss the few apps I have gotten used to having.

    It's really interesting that you say that about the specs of the 950, considering that the Honor 8 has similar specs (for those 2 things) but better battery life in my experience.

    With the LeEco Pro3, how are you dealing with the headphone jack missing? I have heard a bit about their phones, and if they were to make a smaller one, it would be fun to try possibly. I have been trying to be good and not buy a phone this month...

    I believe that the Honor 8 uses a 1080p screen so that probably helps with battery life.
    LeEco Pro3 comes with a dongle just like the new iPhone, so you get the idea...

    Will it be the first snow or has it already snowed before this season there? How do you feel about it? Indifferent?

    Ah okay. My mistake, I always assume qHD=/=1080p on phones. Oh, so then it sounds like you have adjusted just fine.

    It feels like 7F with wind chill. I went for a short walk outside to take a picture of the frozen lake across from the hotel and it was brutal!
