    I have so many fond memories of windows 10 mobile. The reality is I still use it on my 1520 and 950XL. They still fit my needs adequately in every day use, for work and personal use.

    When they're both definitively dead I'll come back for a story tell.

    Yeah, but then the sales people spent thirty minutes trying to convince you that you should be buying an iPhone or Android.
    I remember I had already moved from a 920 to 830 running 8.1 Denim.. Walked into the Samsung kiosk which displayed the newest tabs, Galaxies and Notes
    .. There sat so lonely and neglected was an Ativ S, still on 8.0 .. Quite a beaut..
    I ask the sales rep... His reply in a nutshell " Oh this is our newest ... It has the LASTEST technology"

    At that time Windows Phone is loved by its good prices and the excellent camera.
    It was the 'deal of the day' in all the mobile stores nearby my house.
    My father received a Lumia 430 from his co-worker as a birthday gift. He actually liked the phone, then also bought my mother another one (Lumia 540). The next year he got another WP from a friend.
    Now my parents are using Android from Samsung, and the 3 WP come to me.
    Haizz, maybe I'll buy a Pixel in the end of the year.

    I remember when I was in China with a group of friends. None of us could read anything on any signs or menus, and none of my friends had internet on-the-go, so had it not been for my Lumia 950XL with its offline camera translator abilities, it would have been very difficult indeed! Then the camera... I know it's not about the tools, but it's got something to do with it, and combined with some finesse, I've gotten a lot of questions about what camera I have (same for the 920). Most of the time people were flabbergasted, because it always kinda kicked Galaxy and iPhone quality (spoiler alert: I'm disappointed in my Galaxy S8's camera).

    I fondly remember the house and car I bought from money made from my WP apps while my Android and iOS ones barely made any. I fondly remember the thousands of emails from engaged users asking for features and telling me what I got wrong.

    Now, don't get me wrong, my WP apps are still paying my bills and keeping me very well fed...
    Can I ask what WP apps you developed please? I'm interested. Two WP apps I really enjoy are Bookviser and Freda+.

    I have many memories and very good moments with my Lumia 1020 and now 950, best camera/pictures and all the apps I need... All my friends (who have Android and iPhones asking me to take shoots with MY phone, because they keep saying it have the best incredible camera)... and just updated to Fall Creators Update (right now)... It's strange how everyone are telling "dead" to a phone that still receiving OS updates and App updates, and works like a charm...

    I had good memories of the WP8.1 great interface, slick and sexy looks, the system always quick and responsive, it was a good candidate to fight the other mobile OS... but the w10m? For me that was the start of going downhill... buggy and slow, not so good interface and every day the numbers of devices diminished and only bad news until couple of week MS announced the death of that OS. Good thing i jump ship in early 2016 and spare the annoyance of dealing a dead OS.

    I still have my 1020 on Windows 10 Mobile and my other 2 Lumia's. My daily driver is the 950.

    What I miss is the build of the x20 series phones with the unique polycarbonate structure with the bright colours that would never scratch.

    My mum still uses a Lumia 800 and my dad has a 635.

    My first Windows phone was a Nokia 720. l loved it for the canary yellow colour and the fast practical nature of the OS. I last used it over the Christmas break last year as my Android of the moment was having battery issues... Unfortunately the mic was in and out because I'd had to downgrade from Win 10 back to 8.1 and there was a software issue unresolved. Still have that little phone though and I can't bring myself to get rid of it.

    720 is a gem of a phone.
