Y'all need to chill. It's ok to like something no one else does. It's ok to like something everybody else likes too. How can we call ourselves tech enthusiasts and not have an appreciation for the other systems?

sorry, its not me who needs to chill, its the same people that like coming into these threads and telling us to drop WM and WM is dead and get on with it... but what they fail to realize its "THEM" who doesn't like when we are enthusiastic about WM and feel like staying/using our WM devices.... why isn't anyone telling them to chill? everyday I see posts of android and IOS users coming in here telling us we should "move on" or that android/IOS is so much better/superior/more robust or WM pales in comparison... then when we point out hard facts about how IOS and android have serious flaws and what those flaws are, then they just ignore them and can't acknowledge it or just blatantly tell us we're making stuff up, and is just laughable... seriously why isn't anyone asking why it bothers these people so much, that we don't wanna leave WM... why? please don't parrot the gazillion reason of WM is dead... but we're supposed to accept these other techs and live co-happily with them, which we WM users have no problem with, but it seems not for the other people... who just feel the need to tell us how inferior WM is...

Um, in case you didn't see my sig, I'm a Windows user. I just don't feel like I have to justify what I use. I could easily tell someone to eff off but that'll only get me a vacation from MoNa. If we were sitting in a coffee shop and someone got in my face then I'd go all ghetto, but this isn't the place to do so.

My post certainly wasn't pointed at you. Let the haters hate and you be you.

What was I looking forward to in Windows 10 Mobile?

Support. From Microsoft. From apps. But that never happened.

So instead of having a Pity Me Party - “I am done with Smart Phones and will buy a cheap little flip phone and stick to my tablet for other functions. I wont be manipulated into forking out the kind of money they want for smart phones and end up with a device I hate, I wont do it anymore, I AM DONE...” - all I am done with is Windows Phones.

I have moved on. I am never going backwards to Windows Mobile. The mythical folding device running Windows 10 does not interest me at all.

Windows 10 is not a mobile OS. It will never be a mobile OS. Its a barely tolerable desktop OS. It will never have mobile apps. I am not interested in running ancient Win32 junk in my pocket. Why this prospect seems to fascinate some people here escapes me.
Reading this I almost spit out my drink! Lol

sorry you misunderstood me, I wasn't at all referring to you in my rant... but replying to your post telling me to chill, I was pointing out or rather it was directed at the others here in this thread :wink: and no one is saying ESPECIALLY ME you have to justify what device you use, I just observe and feel its "US" WM users that need to justify why we choose to use WM10...

Ain't nobody paying your bills. Why should you or anyone else have to justify anything? I'm a Windows user and it checks off most of my boxes. Yeah it sucks sometimes because of the lost potential but I have other devices that take up the slack.

BWAHAHAHAHA... are you guys holding hands with each other as you write your replies?

that's funny the only "mocking" and "dumbing down" and "short comings" I see is posts about WM10 in every thread someone tries to post a positive thread about Wm phones (like this one) from the same peeps around here that can't stand that (always seems to be the same peeps) but then someone comes along and tries to contribute to said thread and then they have to vaguely make more cheap shots about poster and WM even though the poster is making valid and truthful points about these other OS's and they get bent out of shape and then try to condescendingly in the guise of being vague as to not offend the mods... but still overlooking and ignoring "facts" said about these other OS's and can't seem to come to terms with the truth... some of you may not like it but they still have to come to realization that a lot of us still love WM and will continue to use WM until our device cease to function. so get over it and enjoy your fruit kind of OS and your Droid kind of OS and let us go on with our fun and please STOP TELLING US TO LET IT GO OR DROP IT OR MOVE ON OR WINDOWS MOBILE IS DEAD ECT ECT... BTW the point that the same peeps don't get is that we've (us WM users) tried the other OS's and we have decided that we don't like them or choose to not use them for MANY good reasons. some users of the fruit kind try to excuse the shortcomings of the other OS's by saying they're "USED TO THE SIMPLE OS NOW" but in actuality they've just accepted the "fallacy" that SAID OS works better... and if it works better for the simpleton then that's fine and go enjoy it. but stop coming in these threads and saying nonsense like WM pales in comparison to the other OS's when in fact WM shines more and has more real world usage and is MORE productive than the other OS's.. that's a fact! WM users can point out a DOZEN ways WM is more productive than the other OS's which has already been done and proven in another thread but then again the same peeps went in that thread and starting posting and saying WM is dead and to move on.... like I've said before only thing the other OS's have is more APPS... thats it, thats all you got! yea other OS's are mature and been around longer than WM but thats all you got also... had MSFT started more early and stopped starting WM from scratch with each new release of a newer WM and just concentrated on updating and advancing WM then WM10 would've been leaps and bounds ahead of the other OS's... AND WE KNOW THAT! we don't need the same peeps coming in here and trying to tell us we're wrong and WM is dead and keep parroting the same line over and over... yes we know MSFT is dropping WM, but what you don't get is? we don't care! and some of us know MSFT is going to come out with something better whether that be Surface phone or what ever they release in the future, what I know is I wanna be a part of it! so best wishes to you other peeps :wink:

great reply.

and add it to this if MS had not abandoned win ce devices like original winmo. Then the picture will be really different that it is now.

It is still Microsoft mobile or nothing for me. No excuses, no interest in following the "in" crowd. No real need for anything else. I have been quizzing the people I know with those other mobile OS and most people don't know what their phones can do and only really have very very limited use of apps, maybe four that they actually use. Now, admittedly, I'm talking about the common everyday real people, not the techies.
I'm waiting for the next thing. Just like one of my old cars, my Windows phone still works and gets me where I want to go. I'm not a quitter or a follower.
Just my thoughts.

Best Wishes

This pretty much sums me up too. My Windows phone does what I need it to do. It is enough for me. Sure, other platforms may get all the latest apps and all the latest features but I won't use half of them anyway. If other people do use them, that's great, but for me, I just want what I have.

With T-Mobile's Digits, My Surface 3 LTE becomes a phone, a 10.8" screened phone. Picture if you will, holding that up to your head with the Type Cover dangling by your neck. Apparently, the Digits app for PC includes a dialer because I've never seen one for PCs.

I never hold my phone to my ear anymore except on rare occasions, but a Bluetooth connection or speaker from the device is what I use. So that's not a problem for me. :)

hey beman35, isn't it funny how many avid ios and android users frequent threads about an OS that they hate? Curious eh? What is really their goal of spending this much time and energy bashing and attempting to cyber users who like MS stuff. I for one don't cruise i-forums or droid forums wreaking havoc.
I am starting to think this is how marketing is done now days, just send your trolls and fanboys to sew seeds of contempt among the competition's users.
Maybe I am wrong, but I can't for the life of me figure out why they are here if they have indeed left MS behind.

They want others to follow them. But they need to understand that the world needs diversity. They need to understand that people may like an OS just because of its looks, simplicity, UI and the way things are arranged and work, even if some key apps are missing. But they don't. They want us to act according to logic and not heart. As far as I am concerned, both my heart and my logic told me to go for Windows phone. So I ordered a new Lumia 950. I mean 4k AMOLED display, SD 808 processor, 3 GB RAM, 4G band, wireless charging, awesome camera technology, OTG support on top of W10. Its value for money. I like to invest in quality products. Much better than those Samsung edge droids and overpriced iDevices.
