    So now that Windows 10 Mobile is officially been declared
    No longer a focus
    (i.e. dead), how about commemorating its existence by sharing a good time you had when using it out there in the world. Here's one I had.

    One day last year at our local coffee shop across the street where I work, I was eating lunch and had my Bluetooth keyboard and mouse to my Lumia950xl.
    A few minutes later, an older couple at the table in front of me start whispering and sneaking glances at me. I could tell that they wanted to ask me something. The lady finally turns around and asks me about my keyboard and mouse and what kind of phone I am using. I mention that it's a Microsoft phone called Lumia 950xl and that I got the keyboard and mouse from Amazon. She gives this slightly surprised look on her face and says: I didn't know that Microsoft's phones could do that. We thought you just happened to have a really small computer tablet.
    It made me smile.
    They started to ask me more questions about it so I told them of all the neat things it could do. They appreciated and thanked me for answering their questions.
    As I was paying, the barista said: I wanted to ask you about your phone too. I thought it was cool how you were using it like a little computer. I think I'd get me one instead of a laptop.
    I agreed and gave her my thanks.

    That was my good experience, what's yours?

    Not much happened with Windows 10, should focus more on Windows Phone as a whole.

    Most memorable experience was my first time owning a Windows Phone (HTC Trophy). I remember how 'alive' Live Tiles back then - the sleek zune tile, my Xbox avatar popping in and out, my most recent status and notifications flips on my very own Me tile, heck even the boot screen was alive! I loved how Zune would constantly change my wallpaper based on what music is playing, how facebook messages and Hotmail messenger threads with SMS conversations, when hubs were 'hubs'. I remember Bing Vision, Audio and Local Scout were really simple and useful. The basic camera and the easy gesture to swipe to view last shot. The ChevronWP and Nokia partnership and the launch of Apollo really were the times when it felt like This phone is designed for me and me only, and there's nothing else like it.

    I tried WM10 on a couple of low end and older phones.
    Smiled after I rolled back to 8.1 or maybe it was 8.2...

    I loved the cameras in the Nokia Lumia Windows Phones I had (900 and 920).

    The best memory is on my trip to Ireland in 2014.
    Three of us went there for work. We decided to go see some sights around Kilkenny and in County Waterford. I had a Lumia 810 on TMO which I had downloaded the map of Ireland. My two coworkers were on Sprint and had iPhone 5 devices. We used my phone as a GPS tooling around using signal but no actual data and my colleagues were wondering why they couldn't do it with their iPhones.

    Fun times, indeed.

    I've had a lot of good times with Windows 10 Mobile.

    Since I've mostly been with my Lumia 950 since launch, it's become kind of a game for me to challenge my co-workers to camera shoot-offs whenever they get the newest flavor of phone. The iPhones (even the plus) get dominated very easily because they take fast, low-res pictures that get pixelated very quickly when zooming in, and even when the droids take an impressive pic, they usually concede that my camera experience is better as soon as I start showing off that dynamic HDR.

    There was a huge moment in restoring my faith when SMS Relay finally dropped too. Being as I'm always on my Surface Book with the 950 in my pocket, being able to send messages from my laptop (or desktop) was a game changer... that was Apple losing exclusivity to a very big feature.

    I think the most fun memory was a short while after getting the NexDock I supported when it was being kickstarted. I got that and a multi-language compiler us #NotificationSquad Windows Central devouts all know as #Code , then decided to test it in the programming class I was in at the time. As I'm setting up continuum and loading my LinkedList project, the kid next to me is giving me all kinds of looks. Then as I compile, he says very loudly "You did not just ******* compile that on your phone." which gets the attention of everyone in the class and has them crowded around me with my Lumia 950 and NexDock, asking all these questions. I was absolutely loving the reaction.

    I still have good times with my 950XL. I don't plan to change my phone, except for maybe an Elite X3. Windows 10 Mobile meets my needs.

    No great times to reminisce about with W10M; it's been a rocky ride. TONS of great memories with WP8 though. Too many to even start. :(

    I can't say I've had any memorable experience with Windows Mobile. To be fair, I can't recall ANY memorable experience with a phone. I can't race one, can't fish from one, can't fly one and certainly can't bungee jump from one.
