    Well I will be using my Lumia 1020 until this fall, and get the surface phone, and if it doesn't get released, then hopping ship to iOS!

    I have a 950 that is the only phone I have wanted to break in half daily. I have been a windows phone guy from the beginning, but I think this 950 and it's battery, Bluetooth, wifi, app gap, and other issues is going to drive me to IOS.

    Why would it. McLaren got canned (in part) because it got caught up in the Nokia deal. It was most probably just a technology prototype anyway. Look at how much the 3D touch is talked about with the iPhones and how many people are demanding that feature here on Windows Central...

    I'll buy lg g3 this spring if things with wm10 don't improve. And then I'll be waiting for a year to see what's going with Surface phone, if it will be announced at all. Then if windows will have become better I'll possibly buy second generation ar used first generation phone. That's my plan, but I'm also waiting to see what Nokia will bring when deal with microsoft, which prevents nokia froma making phones, ends.

    Same sentiments. It was the fluidity and responsiveness that made me love Windows Phone. Give me issues and there's the app gap, what will make me love this device.

    They actually did rename the tech to 3D touch when the 6s/6s Plus released.

    If Surface Phone gets cancelled like Surface Mini, I'll continue to use my 640 and look for options (mid-range W10 phones, 4th gen Moto G?).
    But that would be the case anyway, Surface Phone gets cancelled or not :D

    The rest is at least partly OT, sorry for that ;)

    Surface (Pro) is something new, they say. It's a tablet that can replace laptop. I'd say they just put decent hardware in a thin tablet. Any well-thought and well-made convertible can do the same while keeping keyboard along all the time. Maybe that was the thing, stopping being cheap and seeing value in good specs and good design. Apple.

    Surface Book is again something new, they say. Laptop that can - replace your tablet? I don't know what to even think about that. The Hinge... Surface Pro with extra battery (and GPU in some models if not all?) in keyboard section + hype-class muscle wire locking device. Sci-fi airlock stuff without exploding bolts ;) I can believe OEMs thinking WTF when they saw it. Idea? Nice. Practival? Maybe. Pretty? No :D

    Surface Phone will be something new, everyone thinks. If MS can pull off something in the scale of Hololens (it's cool, potentially practical, independent and small; I want one for, IDK, something), they may have a winner. Dual rear camera at opposite ends of the phone so that it can take real stereoscopic images and overlay world and graphics in cardboard VR. If it's mini-Surface Mini or flip phone with The Hinge - Panos will really have to do his Jobs on the stage. They won't let that happen.


    I don't see Win32 as a reason to have x86 in a phone when small (comparable to Continuum dock) x86 PCs with full Windows are available and cheap. Common thing for both: external display, mouse and keyboard required. Same amount of stuff to carry. Maybe Surface Phone is phone + dock/PC with some fancy USB/WiFi/NFC wizardry that TheVerge cannot understand or appreciate. ARM + x86. Space-tech metal that feels and smells better than what Apple uses. Who knows :)

    I'll just stick with my Lumia 1520. Still arguably the best Windows Phone or Windows 10 Mobile device ever made. When the battery eventually craps out, I'll hope to be able to source a new one.

    To be fair, since sticking the Mozo cover in my 950 I am entirely happy, works great, looks great and will likely get the capabilities of the "surface phone" except maybe Full PC experience. It's good enough for next 12 months.

    Should probably take a good look at it anyway. That thing is impressive.

    I'll continue to use my M8 until the release of the Surface Phone and then consider my options.

    As the ole saying goes, I wouldn't hold my breath. I just stuck a knife in the life raft that I jumped in last week regarding the 950xl. The raft is now guiding me to the sony z5 dual premium. I am done with windows phones. I will still use windows services as they work better on android anyways. The camera on my 1020 will be somewhat missed, but the 30x zoom module for the sony phone will more than make up for it.

    I switched to a Sony Xperia Z5 Premium (chrome) as well from Windows Phone. I've since switched to a gold Galaxy S7 Edge. Liked the sony a lot, but love the galaxy. Never really liked Samsung phones much until this one.

    Still looking forward to a Surface Phone next year though, as well as Nokia's Android offerings.

    Nope. 2 years old in june. I buy off contract, my contract now is too good to loose it by getting a subsided phone. I had Samsung phones before and did not like them. So, I am trying the sony. One of the few I could get with dual sim. Also, I tried the zenfone 2 laser yesterday, nice phone too, but no happy on the build quality.
    THis should quell my 1020 camera lust. 20 mp 30x optical zoom, and no lenes to swap (although you can get one with SLR lens capability).

    It's actually a camera made by Sony that looks like a lens.
    I had the QX10 a couple of years ago I paid $150.00 USD for it when Newegg was closing them out.
    Kind of cool in a way the lens camera snaps a pic then sends the pic via Bluetooth to the phone.

    The QX camera lens works with any BT enabled device.
