    Yep we are still using Windows Phones, and while I cant order coffee as easily from my car I am glad we still use it. As far as I can tell WP still seems to be the best for our family's purposes, and since we have never had any kind of malware of any kind, not been limited or hindered from doing what's really important I don't see the need to jump ship to a platform that is less secure.

    Its sad to see how many people are influenced by negative bashing. I guess peer pressure is a really powerful force. Somehow it first affected developers so they didn't work on apps for the platform, then it got to the users at first just the wishwashy unsteady ones then Microsoft themselves because they didn't stand up for themselves and communicate all users have for information is the naysayers which led to more stable users to start leaving gradually more and more. Then MS not having improved in their marketing or communications skills announces they are dropping W10M without giving any indications of what the replacement is going to be making some of the more die hard users finally give up.
    Honestly if there was another option other than Android or iOS I might be tempted, but those brands have been manipulating people for years in a lot of ways and their hardcore fanboys have been a part of the problem so I will keep using my x3 until I find an option that works better.

    I am amazed how many people who don't like Microsoft are cruising Windows themed forums.

    It's become a sport. They now have Windows-themed pinatas so kids can get an early start.

    moved back to Android. but just ordered the Idol 4s for ****s and giggles cause of price drop.
    After using the phone for about a week, I am returning it for the same reasons I returned my Lumia 950XL. OS and hardware performance still not stable and long standing issues still not fixed.

    Slow Bluetooth connection. Cortana not responding, but perks up randomly. Slow, hanging, stalling. Edge performance is terrible. Very slow bookmark syncing still. Webpages locked randomly locked on desktop mode instead of mobile version. Nothing I've sent feedback on got resolved in past several years.

    I'm sorry to hear that the bugs haven't been resolved. 😞

    The January update has really thrown the OS into chaos. Here I was thinking they finally got things ironed out but noooooo.

    Outlook crashes are the most annoying. Phone logs are not keeping up with the actual incoming and outgoing calls. Bluetooth is having a hard time keeping multiple connections lit. No reboots or anything like that, just irritating as hell.

    Not everybody is on the same version. This month alone these issues have manifested on a 950, Idol 4S and Elite x3. I can safely say it's not hardware related.

    Interesting, my Lumia 650 and new Idol 4s are better than ever. I haven't had any of those issues either and I am on most current build.

    It works for what I use it for. 950xl takes nice pictures and the screen is great.
