    What are you doing with your Windows Phone? What are you planning to do with your Windows 10 Mobile device(s). What do you like to do with your Windows 10 Mobile? I am curious to know who all is still curious, thriving, or enjoying the Windows 10 mobile world out there...

    -Are you one who is rotating between the two or three you own ( that's what I do usually :] ) wishing one had aspects of the other?

    -Are you using them to the fullest? Meaning are you into tweaking it or customizing (Interop Unlock or reg editing / Developer Mode)?

    -Are you content with where you're at in using your current Windows 10 Mobile device?

    -Whatever you want to share?

    Ease of use is great on W10M. Email is superb. I like also that Microsoft has opened the door to development and the ability to access the registry for us technies, enthusiasts and do-it-your-selfers. These and many other things about Windows 10 Mobile has me latched and keeps me around too.

    Well, it's no longer my primary device so I just try to update it every couple weeks to keep up with changes and see if anything exciting is happening.

    My 735 is currently my only mobile device, use it everyday. It's somewhat under powered but don't see any reason to change right now.

    My 640XL is a music device now. The Green Beast, my 1520, is just something I look at and admire from time to time. Just installed a new battery in it yesterday, so it's a brand new machine again. Probably going to attempt to sell them both pretty soon. The old man, my HTC Ttitan, serves as my alarm clock. I wish I could somehow get W10 on it. 😁

    I got the 730 when it was launched. It came with the grey back when I got it and I later changed to the lime green option (looks awesome in my opinion). Its my secondary device and I have it updated so that I know I am not missing out on any new features(if any). Honestly, its better than the initial days of W10M.

    I have had my 640XL for more than 2 years. It still works, mostly, and I am too cheap to buy a new phone.
    The email and texting works. It plays music. The camera sucks and crashes a lot. I will probably spring for an iPhone when it becomes completely unusable.

    I use my 650 for music and podcasts. I do update it when there is an update and I check for app updates weekly. Even though I now I have workarounds for the apps that were lacking, it's battery life is not enough for me to use as a daily phone.

    My 950 is my daily driver. Does everything I need to do, and does it well. My wife's 1020 is her daily driver and she loves it, she is still on 8.1.

    640XL, my screen is dying. I am leaving Windows 10 Mobile soon. Used it for 2 years. In a very sad situation now. With no new devices I have to move on to the Nokia 6.

    keep fixing it! My 950xl is in pieces right now hoping the ebayer will give me a replacement screen cause the one I got, the touch stopped working :(

    Maybe I'll just keep using the screen smashed up cause I'm finding the 650 is really a step below in capability. I guess I do use my phone heavily! The update yesterday may help the 650 though as it seemed to be more of a memory management issue.

    Update my 830/650/950 whenever I feel energetic, other than that they have seen minimal use in the past 1.5 months - did try using my 950 just over a week ago but its lackluster performance became trying within 3-4 hours so back to bed it went. Then there's the app store that has gotten my goat from day one, literally despised it then and to this day.

    So essentially we have three reasonably usable back ups (calls/text/email) if the need arose and guessing that is where their status will stay in the short term.

    Well, I just bought the X3 used just to keep as a fun play toy in case nothing new comes along. I had no intention of making it my DD; have the iPhone 6s Plus for that. BUT: updated it when I got it late last week and the new release today temps me to give it a try as my DD to see what happens. 6" screen, 64 GB's, SD card, 3 GB internal memory and a fast processor. How could I not give it a chance. The 6s Plus is a great phone and I don't intend to give it up so like a kid at Christmas, I'll play with both my toys for a while and see how the MS wind blows over the next year.

    I have a Lumia 640 because I was too stupid not to go for 640XL. The question is what this wonderful phone can NOT do. More than 2 years after it was released, only 1GB of memory and the damn thing runs the latest W10M build more fluently than W8 when it was purchased. Also some problems that used to have (battery life, minor camera issues etc.) have been magically eliminated after some updates. I use it everyday as my main phone for music, movies, torrent downloading, chatting on 3 different messengers, GPS navigation, photography (panorama mode is very good), surfing and e-banking (oh edge is great isn't it?), tethering (it's a WiFi hotspot as I'm writing this now), email (4 accounts in MS Mail) and I don't want to extend to cloud file services and text editing because the list will be too long. I don't know what to do if it breaks or lose it. 950 disappeared from stores so maybe a cheap android waiting for Microsoft's next move.

    I use my 950XL as my daily driver. Here is a typical working day.

    I have the phone in a cradle next to my bed so get to use 'Glance' to see time. I'm woken up by the Alarm app.
    I typically look at news, financial news, twitter news, weather and traffic report for my trip to work.
    I then check the London Underground status and Railway status for my trip for delays (all via apps)
    I quickly glance at my email (Office 365 (work), Outlook and iCloud) and check my meetings (Office 365) all via Outlook Mail and Calendar app
    I drive to railway station and use Waze for directions / traffic
    I buy parking via the Parking app
    I use the National Railways app to check for late delays of my train, platform information and so on.
    On train, I use Groove for music, Film&TV for shows. I also have an iPad mini I use to watch shows
    I keep in touch with my family via Skype, WhatsApp and normal text.
    I use Wunderlist to check my to-do lists for the day.
    I may some saved Youtube videos via myTube or play some games like Candy Crush Soda saga
    Typically on the way home, I do the same as above but in reverse.

    When I'm overseas, I use Microsoft Maps with it's offline maps mode for Sat Nav.
    I do use the BA app but only if I'm travelling alone.
    I check into hotels manually at the front desk as I find I get best option for upgrades etc.

    I could go on and on e.g. check my car via the OBD Auto Doctor app and my OBDII bluetooth adapter, Read the Guardian newspaper, Watch live TV via the TVPlayer app, call a cab with Uber, see what wi-fi is available using WFi Analyzer, at a public hotspot, turn on my NordVPN connection etc etc.

    Basically, I use my 950XL fully - as does the rest of my family ( 2 x 930's, 1 x 650)

    Last and definitely not least, I take fantastic photos with the 22MP camera. No point losing great memories due to poor camera spec - the 950XL is great - even at low light and the Video is fantastic. If this phone broke - I'd buy another.

    I'm still enjoying the only malware protected os on the market for starters.

    Apple patents for what the devices can do while powered off and with biometric data makes it highly untrustable.

    Android is google, google stopped being google a long time ago and is imo a government data collector.
    So equally or even more untrustable.

    Windows when it dies will be my last smartphone.
    I'll move to GPS specific devices for travel and my PC for the rest (with Linux if they try to force 10s and a cloud based os on us) And get back to acknowledging the world around me with a straight neck and spine lol.

    I still have all the apps I need on this device, social, travel, artistic, management and otherwise.

    It was really sad that this phone had things like tap to pay before any of the others but it never really got put to use. By the time the eco system caught up the other companies took over.

    It was never about producing an apple competitor, Microsoft lost focus (nice one nadella), all it had to do at any point was support app developers, and don't try telling me ms couldn't afford to give a little in that respect.

    Sad days but I've learned my lessons and being a connected drone is not part of my future.

    Convenience will be the death of us all.

    950XL Fast Ring. Daily driver. All day. Every day.

    Got a 635 and a 1520 sitting in a drawer collecting dust. I'll probably just toss 'em. Shame cause I really loved my 1520. Stupid phantom touch.
