    I have never seen another Windows phone in person over the same 1 year period. It's so crazy.💩

    Excluding my phone, I've seen one person use a Windows Phone.

    It was a person who worked at my school... he's got good taste (totally an unbiased opinion.)

    There is a thread about this. . . seeing a WP in the wild. Around me I have seen several and I rarely pay attention on what phone everyone is using.

    i've started at my company as only person with a Lumia phone(at that time 920) ,thereafter many phones, 1020,830,640,650,950 and now 950 XL . I've converted so much people to windows phone ive lost count, now over 40 persons at workplace have Lumias, my assistant recently upgraded his 640 to 950 over xmas holidays, i'm to order 650 for another staff who even had Lumia 625 for quite sometime now, but cracked his screen the other day for that phone.

    In probably around 2013/2014, I was seeing them all over my city. 4 of my closest friends had them (by coincidence, we're aren't the cliquey type).

    Now, nada. I haven't seen a another phone in over a year other than my mom's.

    I used to see them all the time when the Lumia 920 came out, I haven't seen one here in Seattle for quite some time outside of the MS store

    In 4+ years only seen one other besides my own, ever, and that was my son's 920 which he no longer owns. Have seen the odd one on TV in ads and various shows.

    I see plenty windows phones out here in the Netherlands, but so far most of them are the NL830 and NL950XL. I've yet to see somebody walk around with the x3 though *grins*

    I have run into a few higher end ones in town (Portland, OR) at brew-fests of all places. One guy even had a Mozo wood backed cover on a 950 XL, first of those covers I saw in the wild. I still see 520s on public transit about once a month.

    How is your 950xl holding up? Mine is relegated to camera and night clock usage these days.

    I rode a bus a couple of weeks ago on my way to work and found the person in front of me using a Lumia 830.

    What's even more incredible is that he had it on W10M which is even rarer.

    My 9 year old son and I are the only ones left that I ever see with Windows Phones. My 2 older sons have both moved on to iPhones (5C and 7 Plus from 640 and 1520).

    I had a couple friends that used Windows phones (HTC M8 and Samsung ATIV) but they both left when W10 wasn't an official option for them.

    I still use my 640 XL and my 1320 (640 XL is on the Slow Ring and 1320 is on the Fast Ring) and have no interest in leaving W10M. Recently it seems that a lot of mobile websites have come into their own in terms of functionality compared to apps, so I just use Pin-It to pin the websites to my phones start screen with icons.

    Believe it or not, I just bought my 6th 950xl. I keep switching back and forth but now I'm going to keep both the iPhone 6s Plus and the 950xl. And...if you believe that, I have some ocean front property in Phoenix, AZ.

    I've seen a couple over the last year. I saw*at least one when visiting Toronto over the summer, saw another at the airport a few months later. I also know a couple people who use them as well.

    Likely there were more I've seen, but just can't recall off the top of my head. The design is generally pretty distinguishable for most Lumia's so it is obvious when you see one.

    If it were me I'd be keeping both, actually have all three platforms on-hand that way when we're tired of one we just switch out SIMs and off we go. Yes a tad more expensive but wouldn't think buying, selling, buying six 950XLs would be all that cost effective either no? Unless they were all returned within an allotted trial period.

    Two new from MS store; others from CL or Swappa; normally at a price that when I sold them, I was able to break even.
