    What are you doing with your current device?
    I made sure my lumias are perfectly safe by hiding them in my cabinet

    i did dig my 1520.3 out of a drawer to take a picture of the eclipse - made the mistake of updating it to the latest 10 mobile build, which broke 80% of my apps - even after a hard reset

    rolled it back to windows 8.1, which apparently is no longer being updated or supported, took a couple of snaps with it, uploaded them to the cloud, switched off the phone and went back to using my iPhone 5s --a phone OLDER than the 1520 thats STILL supported and working on the latest IOS)

    for shame Microsoft, for shame.

    finally made me realize windows 10 mobile (and windows on a mobile phone in general) is dead .. done .. over with.

    What apps didnt work, if you dont mind me asking? My 1520 is on the fast ring latest build and the only thing I have been having problems with is my camera.

    It's my primary device. But I'm like a super edge case. All I really care about is texting, calendar and youtube.

    I'm a masochist though because I put up with not even being able to send or receive mms due to my ****ty unlocked idol 4s not working properly on ATT. It's hard to know when to blame windows and when to blame the device/network connectivity. Sadly I have a blind loyalty to this platform.

    I do have an android device that I use rarely for this app called whisper but that's it.

    I still use my Lumia 640 along with my Galaxy S7. There are just some things that still work better on Windows phones. It is easier to text and easier to use in the car.

    I use my Idol 4S as a daily driver for work and personal. I can get an IPhone 7 plus for free from my company, but continue to decline since I don't want to handle two phones and don't like Apple. Unfortunately, it is becoming more challenging with Windows 10 mobile since critical apps aren't available or not working properly. I travel frequently, so airline apps are a must. Luckily, I primarily fly United and that app still works. Not so for other airlines. I jumped ship from Android (jumped onto sinking ship) in February 2017 and haven't looked back. I prefer Windows 10 over Android or IOS, so I will hang on for as long as possible. I'm considering switching to a 950XL because my Idol 4S is becoming unstable at times.

    My Lumia 950XL has been my daily driver since may 2016. Just replaced the battery and it's running smoothly. Have all the apps I need and will probably be using this phone for at least 2 more years. The camera is so amazing. Have two mozo leather backs and a Nillkin amazing H+ screenprotector giving the phone a premium look.Also have a lumia 925 (now my backup phone) running WM10 AU. Tried android when my lumia 925 screen broke but didn't like it, was constantly afraid of installing new apps, a lot of them seemed obscure and insecure. The android os also quickly seemed to use up memory and system resources. Replaced my lumia 925 screen and its still fine. If I would loose my 950 XL I would do everything to get hold of another 950 XL using my spare 925 in the meantime. I also have the display dock and a wireless display adapter but I rarely use continuum. I dont use social media so I dont miss any apps atm.

    Lumia 950 is being used as a coaster on my desk. Works great.

    Well, I was going back to my Lumia 950 as my daily driver quite often. However, with the bluetooth issues still around, I just could not continue using it anymore. When trying to use it with my Dodge Dart UConnect 8.4, the phone who call, switch to the phone, I try to transfer back and it does not work. I cannot be messing with something like that well I am trying to drive.

    It stinks too because I literally hate Android for personal use. (Not in general, just for personal use.)

    Well, I lasted a day and now I am back on the Lumia 950, again. :D I did finally get the Android phone to be at least usable for me, a single page of icons, daily scripture verse, 4 subreddits icons at the top from Baconit and a completely dark theme. I had also removed or disabled everything I could and it seem to work much better.

    Oh well, maybe when the Fall Creators Update for Windows 10 is released, I will go back. (Cortana will have proper integration then.)

    yes, this, for sure. I hate the hands free setup on my S7A. I sent a text this morning, and it worked, but not as smoothly. Plus, every time I've unlocked my phone it says "message sent!", even though it's already told me....
