    I don't remember if I posted this or not.

    One of my friends, a longtime WP and WM user, finally went with the horrid SGS8 and ditched his 950xl. He sent me a picture of all his Microsoft phone boxes lined up. Lots of investment down the drain:

    I could make a similar picture with a 620, 1520, 640XL and 950XL lined up. I now use an X3.

    I now use an X3 too. I think it is fine for what I need and a very competent phone overall.

    After a week of debating what to do I have today purchased a Lumia 950 with the sole aim of keeping me going for 12 months to the next decision point
    The battery life on the 950, oh dear, what have I done.

    I still use mine - only hooked up to the cradle and a 27" monitor

    I think its important to remember to not put words in Microsoft's Mouth, there's a HUGE difference in what Microsoft actually says and what the "Negative Publicity Artists" (aka NPA) are twisting and spinning. Remember that Microsoft has to compete in a CUTTHROAT business where release of information at the wrong time will get ideas stolen by the competition and/or give the NPA a new target. You have to admit there are a lot of NPA on the internet these days.

    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 too am a die hard windows phone fan! I have several and plan to reactivate one of mine with the broken screen. Why? For me it's easier to use. I also have an Android Samsung phone and I find Android to require a lot more work to use. I like the way my email accounts automatically connect on windows and the fact that I can stay with my MS accounts and move from my phone to my laptop with little effort. I'm sorry some of the support is gone for the MS PHONE.

    I am with you. And I thought that I was the only one out here. I love using the Windows Mobile operating system. I have tried ios and android and do not like either. I like how my phone syncs with my Surface Pro and my desk top. I like how I can do a power point presentation with the continuum app right from my phone. I like how I can open multiple browsers when using Edge, etc. What I don't like is how companies discontinue Windows apps. About a year ago I purchased an Alcatel Idol 4S with the Windows 10 operating system. It has 64 GB storage and a 21 MP camera and came with VR goggles. Love this phone and would like to try the HP Elite when the price drops a little, it is still $799. I noticed that the Microsoft Store is pushing Android to it's gamer customers. I keep hearing the Microsoft Mobile has died but then the other day Microsoft sent a large update to my phone and it gives me hope that they will not ditch WM.

    I pulled my Lumia 640 out of a drawer and moved off a 6 month old iPhone SE to go back to Windows OS. It is by far the superior OS. I am fine with the apps it has. Sure, having more apps would be a plus, but I make it work with no issues. At this time, I am here to stay. I may even buy that Idol 4s deal Microsoft is having.

    I am sticking with WP, my DD is a 950 with spare new battery, I also have 2 640's and a 640xl as backup. I agree the mobile web sites are a great work around for many missing apps. The apps I need are still working, audio book reader, marine navigation, MS Band, SmartThings, Waze, and the office apps, email, music player, and the rest I use are mobile web sites

    Battery life might be bad at the beginning as all the synching goes on, but my Windows Phones all gained battery life after the first few days once everything settled down. HTH

    In spirit, I'm with you, however my wife went over to Android (after her L830 died).

    She was all at sea at first, until I installed Nine Mail and SquareHome2. The combination creates quite the W10M experience. Thus there is life after W10M.

    My L830 is still going strong, and I can't fault it. I won't be changing over until this dies.

    Yes, according to the Chicken Little Society when one feature is removed the sky falls and you're pronounced dead. Groove is now just a music player for onboard storage or streaming from OneDrive.

    Old news. We all got Groove email back in September and it was announced they were partnering with Spotify.

    Now if only Itunes would stream from OneDrive.
