    I just took my 950 on a two week long trip around the "4 Corner" states and used the default Maps app for navigation, never looking at a printed map. I also used it take pictures, panoramas, and videos. During those long stretches of highway, I listed to Spotify through the car's Bluetooth. At night, I used it to check Facebook and emails. I also depended on it for the local weather forecast and alarm for the following day. It's my daily and only driver. I plan to keep it as long as I can.

    I have a Cricket 640 that I bought as a backup but have never enabled it. But it works great and I can use it to test updates.

    I use Elite X3 as daily driver and my wife recently used the 950XL until it broke as her daily driver. She had the option to go iPhone or another direction and she wanted to stick with Windows, so I got her an Elite X3 as well. Both of us are very happy with the OS and we also tie them together with our Surface products. great integration
    My wife and I both have an Elite X3 too. Best Windows Phone I have had but not the best camera. Camera is still good enough for me.

    My 950 XL is my daily driver. Does everything I need to do, and does it pretty well. The OS was a smoother experience earlier but lately it seems buggier. It is my trusted work communicator back-up for email and texting staff as well. Love the camera still.

    1520 with WM10 has all the apps I need: e-mail, office, Groove music, Spotify, LinkedIn, Skype, WhatsApp, Flipboard, Zinio, Kindle, Amazon, Photos app, good enough camera, using Cortana and Bing too. MS News and weather good enough. Then I cherish my Lumia 1020 for photos only. Can't beat 41MP camera. Keeping them updated as much as I can. However, my primary device right now is the Google Nexus 6. Just love great gadgets.

    I still use my Samsung Ativ S as a daily driver (on 8.1 update 2). I also own a 950XL that I intended for replacement of the Ativ S. It is on insider fast, and I use it to play with UWP apps and for the great camera, but it simply has too much battery drain for normal use. When I use Maps for navigation in the car the screen dims after an hour because of the heat it develops!

    I use my Lumia 950 for EVERYTHING! I'm a die hard fan, it's disappointing not to see any new features recently.

    My Lumia 950 is my daily driver.

    On the bus into work and coming home from work I use it to while away the time by having a quick look at Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, new articles on MSPowerUser and Windows Central apps, and then checking mTalk (for the Windows Central forums) and Readit. If traffic is particularly bad, I will also look at the BBC News website via Edge and maybe even get time to look at Flipboard!

    If I awake earlier than my alarm, and am fairly full awake and there's not long until my alarm goes off then, from the comfort of my bed, I'll have a quick look at Facebook, Instagram and Twitter then instead.

    If I don't go out at lunch time, then I'll sit at my desk and have a check of some of the aforementioned apps. They are my main apps.

    Sometimes I need to travel for work, so if I'm travelling by train I'll listen to some of my music via Groove.

    Not so long ago, I got a USB-C to HDMI adapter and a new monitor, so when I get home from work I plug the adapter into my phone to use in Continuum mode. I can do most things pretty much in Continuum that I could on my Surface Pro 4. This includes general light internet browsing, emails, using Excel, updating my money tracking app (Money Tracker Pro - I highly recommend, there's a free trial and it gets regular updates from the developer), even responding to these forums and Reddit via mTalk and Readit apps respectively.

    (I don't always use Continuum - for more intensive things I use my SP4.)

    When finished with Continuum, obviously it reverts to being a phone. I always speak to my parents every night (by the regular phone, not Skype), then there's WhatsApp conversations with friends. The occasional email.

    I use Cortana to search if something comes to mind, to set reminders, to set a timer if I'm cooking for example.

    I use an app called Smart Cart for grocery shopping lists. I like to plan my meals in advance and use an app called Recipe Keeper Pro (I believe this app is available on all platforms) which has a meal planner section - I also use it to store some recipes.

    Before I go to bed, I have a last quick look at Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

    When doing chores that take a while - such as gardening and ironing, I will listen to my music via Groove.

    My 950 and W10M does everything I need it to.

    What are you doing with your Windows Phone? What are you planning to do with your Windows 10 Mobile device(s).
    I am still using my Lumia 1520 which was bought on 26th September 2014. The OS loaded is Windows 10 Mobile 1703 10.0.15063.502

    Phone is a breeze to use and all my social media needs (WhatsApp, Facebook, Instagram & Twitter) are taken care brilliantly. All my emails, quick browsing, PDF reading, etc are also taken care very well.

    I am contemplating for a new phone by year end or early next year and cannot find a suitable replacement for L1520. Primary criteria is 6". Don't know when new Windows 10 Mobile handset will be available in the market. So this time going for Android.

    Microsoft should have making more 6" mobile phones by now.

    Cheers!

    Lumia 930 is my secondary device. I love the ad free experience of Twitter, FB and Instagram, and have removed those apps from my main device.

    The only apps I would actually use if I wasn't on W10M are WWE Network, the app for my local YMCA and my bank.

    The bank has an adequate mobile site that gets me by, but the other 2 don't work without apps.

    The WWE Network website says "Download our app" and when you click the link you get a "Not compatible with your device" message.

    The YMCA website is bare bones and doesn't include any of the info that the app does.

    I use my old Lumia 535DS as an alarm clock, for internet browsing and as a secondary device with the sim card of my alternate mobile number. My son uses it when he is home during a university break.It is on Creators Update through Insider Release Preview.

    Yes, I do rotate between phones. Privately, I own a Lumia 950. A have a Business iPhone, too, which I am also allowed to use privately. But still, I try to separate private and busines Task. BUT: E.g. Facebook is so annoyingly slow on Windows that I use my work iPhone for that. And I don't like the Twitter Clients for Windows 10 Mobile, so again I prefer the iPhone. But for the rest of my private stuff, I really prefer my Lumia: Mail, Calendar, RSS-Reading, WhatsApp, Taking Photos, Listening to Music (streamed from OneDrive).

    I hope I can survive with my Lumia until 2018, when that Jesus phone, the "Surface Phone" is rumored to be published.

    What is it you don't like about Twitter on W10M? I prefer it to my iPad or to the web browser.

    My 950XL is my personal phone. I use it for everything...

    I have an Galaxy S7 for work. Not really pleased with Android. In fact, since my work email is mobile enabled, I found a way to get my work Account on my personal phone. Now my Android phone is used more as a hot spot for my 950 nd my Surface while commuting to work via train.

    I use a HP Elite X3 for work and it's brilliant, but my 950XL is currently just sat powered off. I update it when the latest builds come out. I have a 1520 as well which I keep updated but sadly don't use anymore.

    I'll take that 950XL if you want to give it a good home! ;)

    I have a Lumia 640 XL(Windows 10 Mobile) which I use as my primary and only phone. I do everything on it from browsing the web to playing 'Age of Empires: Castle Siege', and also I don't download much apps and games now, so the availability of less apps is not much of an issue for me. I STILL LOVE MY WINDOWS PHONE!!! ;-)

    What are you doing with your Windows Phone? What are you planning to do with your Windows 10 Mobile device(s). What do you like to do with your Windows 10 Mobile? I am curious to know who all is still curious, thriving, or enjoying the Windows 10 mobile world out there...

    -Are you one who is rotating between the two or three you own ( that's what I do usually :] ) wishing one had aspects of the other?

    -Are you using them to the fullest? Meaning are you into tweaking it or customizing (Interop Unlock or reg editing / Developer Mode)?

    -Are you content with where you're at in using your current Windows 10 Mobile device?

    -Whatever you want to share?

    Ease of use is great on W10M. Email is superb. I like also that Microsoft has opened the door to development and the ability to access the registry for us technies, enthusiasts and do-it-your-selfers. These and many other things about Windows 10 Mobile has me latched and keeps me around too.
    ShyAmkuMar G: There is one special in windows that nor iPhone or android can do that is downloading anything without the help of uc browser or other, as in windows mobile 10 OS with Edge app, we can do any download its same as PC. Am still using Lumia 830 from 2015, now still it's my Best phone till date, i have iPhone its OS is good but not special as windows mobile. Am patiently waiting for Surface Phone with many features such as using it to play xbox one games, second in build storage of 512 GB, 16 GB of RAM, (hey don't think its not possible; Microsoft can do this if they can build windows its nothing for them), screen 5.7 inch, 64 bit and with Microsoft own Processor. I still play Age of Empires castle siege game till date., thirdly I have more than 36 GB in total of 64 GB microsd card.
