    Hello guys. I would like to ask you people about what is the next windows 10 mobile that we would get to see. We are not going to see any more Lumias and whenever the surface phone arrives, it would prove to be very costly. Which other OEMs are planning to release windows mobiles, particularly in the low and mid range?

    the best answer would be to wait and watch what happens in the next few months or early 2017 with announcement of a new hardware or new devices devices from regional OEM. Lumia series has been discontinued by microsoft so we might see a new range of hardware as we are expecting microsoft to hint at surface phone but with fingers crossed.

    But microsoft may not feel investing in the hardware again , and becoming a software only like blackberry.

    I wonder when other OEMs will begin selling windows mobile devices! The irony is that the OS has just started to bloom but there are only a few devices out there.

    I'm considering buying a higher end, older or used windows phone such as the Icon or maybe one of the newer x50 series (650?). I'll continue to use my buttery smooth efficient WP 8.1 phone, but I think Windows Mobile 10 might be ready for me to play with.

    nothing really, check ebay for cheap icons and 1520s in the US, other than that all we can do is wait for microsoft to realize this isnt working and start their new mobile push, again, its a cycle

    btw the most you can expect is dell and other microsoft friendly OEMs to put more X3's on the store at 800$, thats the new vision, no budget or even classic "flagship" phones apart from the odd no-name brand releasing a generic android running w10m, and thats very hard to recommend, w10m is no longer that buttery smooth efficiency wonder of yore, so be very picky with hard specs like cpu & ram

    Just go for an Android, You are based out of India If I'm not wrong in that case, W10M is just dead for you. Surface phone might come late 2017 or early 2018 and I'm sure it wont come to India immediately, just look at the history of surface device and band launch(or the lack of it) in India.

    Yeah I'm based out of India and I know that the surface phone isn't what I would be getting any time soon. :(

    So what you are trying to say is that there might not be any more mid or low range phones running w10m, right?

    Yeah that's one option that I'm considering too- buying a used high end phone!

    Look out for Cerulean Mobile, a W10M phone created by Windows Phone fans, for the fans. I think their company's name is Wharton Brooks? Windows Central posted a lot of articles regarding this company, and their interest in making W10M phones for the fans; US.

    I left W10M for fear of it dying for an iPhone, but I kind of regret it.

    I'm curious why you feel that way. For me, I missed customization. That was my only true annoyance.

    I was not dying for a iphone I had no choice if I wanted to have that one app. So it was between iphone and note 7. I did sway towards iphone which turned out to be the right choice considering the explosive note 7. And I actually like it very much.

    I customized the main screen of both my Icon & my 1520, to me it was fine.
    I could jailbreak my iPhone if I wanted to (it's on 9.3.2), but I really haven't found any themes I like.
    The app issue wasn't really that big of a deal for me but more me being worried W10M wouldn't be around/supported much longer.
    Sure, it "works", but I never had any issues with either 8.1 or 10.
    I just like the way the Windows phone "worked" better than the iPhone I have now.

    Microsoft cannot afford to sit back and just do software, we dont live in that world anymore. They have a great brand in the Surface. IMO they will:

    Surface Pro range
    Surface Book range
    Surface All in One range
    Surface Accessories range
    Surface Watch range
    Surface Phone range

    OEM's like HP will also create alternatives, something that MS wants and needs for them to do.

    Yup I agree that OEMs like Dell, HP and maybe ASUS and Lenovo should also step in and build some devices.
