    We know that Samsung, HTC and Sony have recently renewed their commitment to WP and will be releasing new WP devices in the near future. Personally I'm most excited about Sony especially if they can deliver something similar to the new Xperia on Android. For me they're the only company that could convince me to leave Nokia for my next WP.

    What about all of you? Your thoughts?

    I absolutely LOVE the HTC Windows Phones.
    I use a Lumia 920 right now, but I like HTC's signature design better. In my opinion, the 8X is by far one of the most beautiful phones I have ever seen.

    HTC have to support Windows Phone better than they do currently. Then their next WP flagship will be mine! *-*

    I would have to stick with Samsung although HTC have some good devices. I didn't think that Sony had made a firm commitment to Windows Phone yet though.

    Definitely HTC. The One has great hardware and I love the speakers. I wish they'd still would make WP specific designs because the 8x is still one of the most beautiful phones ever made. Hope they bring dual-cameras, boom sound (vers. 2) and all top notch hardware and I'd buy another HTC device.

    Nokia! I like nokia's colorful design. They are Great phones with good cameras. I like 8X also, but Nokia has a Lot of software inside :) Samsung's Windows Phone is more beautiful than all their android phones.
    Sony is not going to make Windows phone

    None of them have made a firm commitment to WP. It's as always... MS is sending each company a few hundred million in advertising support or offering other goodies in exchange for their participation in the WP ecosystem.

    IMHO that amount of commitment leaves no room for excitement. I'll judge the products when they arrive, but if history is anything to go by, they will all provide the bare necessities required to cash MS' checks and be done with it.

    On the one hand, since my original Focus, I've been criticising Samsung for doing nothing more than recycling their Galaxy line. On the other the newest GS is something I wouldn't mind seeing recycled as a WP device.

    This is why no oem excites me, they are all just doing the bare minimum. I'd actually like to see imate make a comeback as a partner, they had some crazy ideas but at least were thinking outside the box.

    Lenovo.... Need a good old Droid 4 with WP slapped on it to get a physical keyboard back on!!

    Otherwise, Samsung or Sony. Sammy has earned my respect for their devices. You will be hard pressed to get a bad from me or my family for the Focus S, Captivate Glyde, Note 1, or any of the feature phones we have used from them. I am glad they stayed onboard. I love Sony's hardware. I think it is fantastic. And until we hear otherwise, I believe Sony will work out a deal to be a part of WP.

    I'd probably stick with Nokia except with the ever increasing screen (and phone) size I might have to move to another manufacturer. I wouldn't have a problem with either Samsung or HTC if the hardware suits my needs. A buddy has a Samsung S4 mini which is nice phone and I had an HTC Evo which was also a solid device. I'm not too hot for Motorola devices and I doubt we'd see a WP device from them anyway. For me it will come down to size. I don't want anything larger than my 822.

    Damn... Well let's hope that changes because Sony when they want to can make some stunning pieces of hardware.

    Didn't Sony sell their Vaio line? Wouldn't their WP device's have been part of that line? I have no idea. I don't follow Sony. Just asking.

    Maybe they sold the PC division but kept the Vaio name, it's possible.

    This would be a "shut up and take my money" for my own use case. I heard they had a Droid 5 in the pipe so maybe instead with WP8.1? I can hope.

    I will likely be sticking to Nokia. They are the best and have earned the reputation as the best windows phone OEM for their support and dedication to the platform. I don't get excited as other people do about getting leftover android phones turned windows phone.

    However I may give Sony a look......but then again I am not sure I would buy it or not.

    People are considering buying these phones but we have no idea if they will be properly supported or not.

    Nokia= likely....they are the best.

    Though I will consider checking out the new windows phone from HTC or Sony because I did love the 8x when I had it.

    Samsung has its own OS to bother, so mostly it wont put too much effort to WP, but they are big manufacturer, so it can advertising it.
    Sony use android for years, they might switch to WP if it is good.
    Lenovo target to sells low end phone, WP is better option because it require less hardware speed than android
    HTC got my attraction when it has dual camera, you can take a 3D picture with it
    nobody care about Xiao Mi? it would be great if they do a WP, so it can advertise WP to china

    but still, im waiting for nokia with 3D touch gesture and nokia lumia 1030. only HTC is my second choice
