    We get to talk about phones all the time around on the office.
    Most people uses android and we joke about the few that us that use windows phone.

    Today my best buddy joked that his next phone wont be a lumia or even windows phone.
    He got tired of whatsapp not working, apps paid that are free on android and the such.

    We joke around but i feel so lonely now! and when i see the android devices the other people have, they look so ugly lol

    Are we outcasts? lol

    I make my mind on where I spend my time, money, and who I am solely on me.. I don't care what others think... If anything, I am a rebel by nature.

    People who talk and put so much value in things are the ones empty and wanting attention /satisfaction from the object they are holding your feet to the fire for... They act like you are some poor or uninformed sap sucker. I chose all I have, not based on money or being dumb. I did for mw and I have had all major platforms in many areas... I still do me... Will always do me... I don't care what others do. It keeps us rounded...

    If anything, I am sick of everything having to be fought about.. The stupid fans do more fighting than the companies...

    This is what I really want to say to all who fight out there.

    The real losers are those who aren't happy and have to bash others for their platform choices just to gain some joy. Or should I say, schaudenfreude. I think I spelled that correctly.

    Preaching to the choir my brutha. These people actually believe the companies are listening. Companies listen to shareholders. End of story.

    Well stated. Unfortunately this is happening more and more on WP Central. I am constantly amazed at how much time and effort some people put into trying to convince others that their preferences are inferior. It's a glaring sign of personal insecurity.

    Certainly not the consumers. BB thought they could survive with just Enterprise customers. They could if they had realized that these same customers also had spouses and relatives who were buying phones. A niche player is ok if there is a larger fallback involved. For example, Motorola still produces the ES400 for its logistics customers. This is a Windows Mobile 6.5 device and it still receives updates. Can you imagine if this was all Motorola had to offer?

    I have to say, I've had many phones, Palm(Pre, Pixi and Pre 2),iPhones(first gen to 4), Android(too many to count!) and Windows Phone (Lumia 1520). I went from my Galaxy Note 2(LG OG Pro as backup) to the Lumia 1520 which is an awesome phone! It was great but for some odd reason I felt like I was missing out on something (all of my friends and family have iphones or androids). Well I swapped my 1520 for a Galaxy S4 (and some cash) and purchased a Galaxy Gear watch and all I can say is that I really miss windows phone!!!! Most of us have this need to fit in some type of way and mobile devices have become such a big part of our lives that most of us feel that we must have what everyone else has (same thing with cars, clothes, houses and even tattoos and other things). The app gap on windows phone is not really that big, I easily found third party apps that worked just as well for the things that I needed. Windows phone is great!
