    it's the end of whole Microsoft ecosystem based on UWP apps and everything - this is what Belfiore stated.
    No, that's really not what Belfiore stated. It might be what you read into it, but it isn't what he stated.

    I still like this platform. Nokia brought me here in late 2012 with my first smartphone,..the NL 810.

    Was a great phone and operating system under 8.0. Now 5 years later I have acquired a Nokia 6 in July and liking stock android. I also use an Idol 4S when I switch back to Windows.

    I love the live tiles and the pin to start screen and also favorites. Very easy to use .

    Android with the Windows 10.launcher makes the android experience pretty good though.

    I hope Microsoft really has something thing up their sleeves but it is highly doubtful now.

    At least with the Nokia 6 I have that legendary build quality again. Such a solid and well made device which is getting the oreo update.

    If anyone goes android, get a phone that supports updates. I will keep the 6 for a while until the 7 comes to the US ( I hope!). No regrets here . Everything on android works. I have had no screen freezes or apps crashing or sluggishness. Not yet at least.

    Who else is with me? Till the bitter end we stick together, we will make it through, and we know good things come to those who wait.

    My 1520 finally crashed and screen shattered, I'm now looking for a 950XL as an upgrade or if I can find an HP x3 for cheap that'll be great too.

    I don't think WM is a burning and a sinking ship at all, I just think we're in a transitional phase, and there's absolutely no reason why MS isn't doing something secretly in their Research Lab. They're most likely preparing for the post-smartphone era that's about to unfold in the next couple of years or so. I'm very excited to finally see the "foldable phone" they've been working on for quite some time now, and I'm sure it'll be great.

    I would totally understand why you are leaving this platform, and it's absolutely within reason and totally justified, I won't miss you though because I know deep down inside, you've got a special place for WM and you'll eventually come back to us when a new spark has been ignited.

    But for us who are staying and sticking through this long haul, we're going to be all right. Everything is going to be all right. We shall make it through and reap the rewards when the time is right.
    I just bought an HP Elite x2 and Alacatel Idol 4S - new. My Nokia 930 had a screen issue - while still functioning...it's unusable. I think I am in mourning. However, the OS is still solid. Like Symbian (yup, ran a Nokia N8 till Nov 2014) I will be here till the end.
    I would like to stay with MS and am hoping 2018 will have another device. Maybe even something my two 'new' phones can support....Hoping...

    Unless someone kidnaps the entire MS management team I wouldn’t bet on it.

    I'm with you abel920, I'll be sticking to Windows Phone no matter what. I'm happy to see Microsoft developing Windows10 for all kinds of devices, and I'm waiting for carry-on always-connected PC's in the shape of a phone to continue using Windows10. I'm very interested about the upcoming Andromeda device!

    I’m curious about the folks who are pining for the Andromeda device as to whether they will use it as a primary handset. Sure, it will supposedly have telephony but will y’all put that brick to your head to talk? I’m assuming people still have voice conversations right?

    In South Florida we have this marvel of nature called the beach and I promise you that a phone that size doesn’t fit in swim shorts. Further, I also guarantee it will grow legs within 10 minutes after you walk more than 10 yards away from it. The same could be said if you’re at the tennis court, gym or any place where you wouldn’t normally have your phone on you.

    Just some random thoughts on a lazy Sunday afternoon when your team doesn’t play. For a Dolphins fan that’s not necessarily a bad thing.

    I’m wondering the same thing. I’m not saying it wouldn’t have a use, but would it replace most people’s phone? I don’t see it.

    Unless it’s like a flip phone that has a small secondary display that allows you to see who’s calling and allows you to answer the phone without having to unfold it, no. I don’t see it either.

    Based in the rumor today from Brad Sams, it's not a phone. So those waiting til the end..... the end was here when they killed the Lumia line, and again when they publicly stated they are no longer actively working on the OS. It's D. E. A. D. dead. I was one of the hold outs. Going to finger a pixel 2 this weekend and see how it feels.

    Xbox is getting Nadellaed too with not being able to watch television at the home screen, and also killing off of the kinect now. The whole idea behind the Xbox One was supposed to be exactly that an entire entertainment Hub Center for everything. I'm seriously starting to believe that everything's being sabotaged by people that just think that they are fans or let these companies know that their fans, and that's just not the way it is. It's like great idea let's kill it.

    I'm looking at all the Pixels. Will be in a case, so the color is irrelevant to my wife and I. Prob a 2 for her and a 2xl for me. And yes, it will be a husband and wife simultaneous fingering if the Pixel 2 line at the Verizon store in Pflugerville TX if anyone wants a show.

    I'm not sure if it will replace my phone, given that it's rumoured to be a 7 inch device which is going to strain at most people's pockets - but it could, given that I don't take phone calls very often and I don't really need to have a phone on me at all times.

    Either way I'm happy to wait and see. I'm not all-in on the Surface Pocket but I have no quarrels with my 950, certainly not enough quarrels to make me spend £500-£1000+ on a replacement of similar or higher specs. No app is worth that.

    I too am standing my ground. I'm using a Nokia Lumia 730 dual sim and a Microsoft Lumia 650 dual sim as is my wife. I just bought a 950 XL and waiting for it to come in the mail. I will buy replacement batteries for all of them to keep'em running as long as I can. I have no problems with these Phones and have all the apps I need. WhatsApp, Telegram, Line, WeChat, Viber, Skype, banking, maps, weather, metro. Instagram still works but won't update because now it needs 2GB ram and I'll have that on the 950XL. I used Android for 2 years before I bought a 730 and I never got used to it. For me their way of doing things just didn't make sense. I don't like Google as a company and stay as far a way as possible too. I think I could hold out for at least 5 more years with Windows Phone.

    fatclue_98 , I like the beach too even here in Michigan, yes you are right I wouldn't leave it out in the open. I would use it with a smart watch, Fitbit waterproof and stay connected in those situations. I might use the speaker phone a bit more also depending on the size. My 950XL is a good size for now. Just hoping they come through and make it by the end of 2018. :-)

    After nearly a month of bouncing between iPhone 7 Plus and Galaxy S8, I think I may soon be returning to my Lumia 950 and sticking it out with you guys.

    None of the "W10-style" interfaces are as good as the real one, the Lumia camera experience is unparalleled, and... I miss my mobile Xbox games.

    ...and though MS doesn't care about us anymore, I see my app updates keep rollin in.

    I'm certainly not gonna rush out to buy a new phone. Absolutely loving my 950xl. The primary reason for me using the Windows phone was for the truly superb interface. I'll happily stick with this platform for as long as my phone lasts. Thankfully there is no need for me to change. I certainly dont feel betrayed by a computer company. Lol, we're not friends I'm just a consumer and I like their products.

    Fools! Go ahead and leave! You'll be back! But if you were Microsoft Fan boys you would know that Microsoft had to end W10M platform for the same reasons WP7, WP7.5, WP8, and WP8.1. They hit a wall in what they are trying to do. "universal OS. For those uninformed So called Microsoft fan boys....They will continue to develop phones. Just not under W10 mobile. They scrapped it to reengage With W10 OS ("WCOS"). This will do away with Fragmented W10 OS's. No more W10 mobile, W10RT, W10 pro, basic, home...etc...etc.. . Instead One Universal OS which simply will be known as W10. Single OS that can be used by OEM's to choose specific features to be installed on to a device which best suites it's purpose. In other words. Hp designs a notebook and builds a phone for example.... They don't have to purchase the phone OS and a PC OS. Even better...they don't have to design the notebook to run one OS and design a phone to run another. So, go ahead! Jump ship...I'll see you and ask you how the crowe tastes...lol.

    Said farewell to my 950xl about 6 months ago but I'm really starting to miss it. The shortcomings frustrated the hell out of me and what ultimately made me move back to Android but all the nice things about it are the things that's making me look around for another. I won't be using it as my daily driver but I'll use it as my work phone again and for nostalgia most likely.
