    I’m apparently selling them on here, and also looking for a Lumia 950 to use with a data only SIM in the car for distraction free driving.

    Pandora or Spotify + Waze, and no notifications to interrupt my journey!

    I sold my 950 a year ago while some people still believed in Microsoft. Took the money and bought an OnePlus.

    I will put my 920, 1020, 1520, 950 and Elite X3 in a pillow case and ask my wife to hit me with it hard every time I think about looking at anything consumer from Microsoft ever again.

    Now, on a more serious note: I will keep them, just as I kept all my Palm Pre's.
    They are cool memories of good times.
    And a reminder on how to not do business :)

    My son is loving the 950 for taking pictures, Skype with the family, play some games,...

    I for one am about to switch from my S8 back to my 950xl to see how it goes.

    Love the amount of apps on android but that's just about it...

    My Lumia 620 is absolutely outdated, but it still works properly & is pocketable. So, when I go outside & need a phone for basic phone functions, I use it. GPS & maps work on it faster than on W10M too. Also, it's nice to be used as an alarm. I use My Lumia 950XL as daily driver. I don't need any special apps. Websites satisfy my need. I don't need an android phone right now. So, I can bear with it for one more year. Then, probably I will switch over to Pixel kinda phone. In short my WPs are still in use.

    I use my 950XL as a constant reminder to thinks twice before buying Microsoft hardware in the future. So, it serves a good purpose for me...lol

    I still use mine just to confuse people and hear them ask "wow you can get Windows on a phone? When did that happen?"

    My kids get to use a few 640s.
    I still use my X3 a daily driver
    My 1520 sits in a drawer fired up once a month or so.
    My android Nokia 6 sits on the desk for when I need to accept rent payments via venmo or do eBay stuff.

    What can you do with your MS abandoned 950xl or other W10M device?

    What other ways can we use these bricks?
    Personally I think of it like a pocket pc with wifi and a half decent camera. Still like having a camera button.

    So I have my Android device and Pocket PC. I can tether it to get some communication going too.

    I would prefer if it was a phone and still being developed but it isn't so it just slips in a bag as a Pocket PC.

    I.... literally had no idea. :(

    I was hoping they would have a UWP app to use a 7” tablet in the car for a larger screen GPS.

    Waze hasn't been updated on Win Phone for a few years now. Obviously it won't be for the future, in fact nothing will be.

    I still use my 950XL when I get frustrated with Android and when I go on vacation because of the superior camera and because I like it so much more than my G6. It still does half duty. The 650 is for sale.

    I bounce back and forth between my IDOL 4S and Nokia 6. I can't ditch windows completely. Just the look of my lock and start screens are more appealing than my android screen though the Nokia itself has a beautiful screen.

    It's the live tiles that do it for many of us.

    Neither of my phones takes the pictures that my old Lumia 950 or even my NL 925 did but they are very good. Camera tech in general on these phones has gotten much better overall.

    Not as big a deal anymore to the average user I guess.

    950xl to read emails, family calendar (native outlook can't be beat), watch YouTube via edge, office lens for scanning, CBS news app to watch their shows... no ads!!! (Android version has ads), read windows central, oh and check the weather...finally, it's my bedside clock and alarm. Glance was on windows phone years before Android, and the selection of alarm tones is second to none.

    I had bought the protection plan on my 950XL and took it back to the MS store for repair so I could sell it for what I could get out of it. But because they didn't have any more to replace with they refunded (well store gift card) my full original purchase amount.

    I am a pretty happy camper!

    Use my 920 as a stickup IP Cam. Use my 1520 as a dedicated viewer for my door Ring door bell. Keep my 950 in the jeep for great cam pics.
    Use my X3 everyday as my phone and light tab (lapdock) in airports.
