    Currently using a Lumia 710 running 7.8. I don't at all get irritated/mad about new 7.x apps, I'm happy for WP8 as a platform and that it's getting a bunch of quality apps. I even purchased my Lumia knowing that WP8 was coming, I disliked my android device that much!

    I'm still on an HTC HD7. It's a bit of a bummer to miss out on some of the apps and not to have any attention really paid to my device.
    That said, I'm currently planning on holding out until Blue, if possible, so I'm not that bothered obviously.

    I'm on a Lumia 900, and even though I should've waited the month or two to get a 920, I'm still happy with my purchase. A part of me is glad I didn't wait because of all the debacle that everyone is saying about Xbox music. Unless those are just the minority? :P I'm still rooting for WP though and am looking forward to see what "Blue" or whatever it is called will put on the table.

    I'm a 7.8 user and that was pretty much by choice. I really did wanted a Lumia 800 just on the basis that it's stunning and that I had a fascination for WP since the early days and I felt the 800 was the first Lumia and it was the beginning of something really special and I just had to have one. I like WP8 and I know more exclusive apps will appear over the coming weeks but I don't think I'll be switching soon. I'm sure in a few months when I'm ready to move on some really cool hardware will be out and I'll be able to say I had the first ever Nokia Windows Phone for the rest of my life.

    More to what the author of this post was saying, more people still have 7,x devides compared to Windows Phone 8 and we still want some of the good software and some of us bought our devices not so long ago and even though software is sometimes like that, we are still no second class citizens.

    Much Love!

    I just recently purchased a Lumia 900 and am waiting for it to be delivered. I had an HD7 about 2 years ago so I am not as up on my WP apps. What are some of the more important apps that are not supported on 7.8? Just wondering what to expect for my Lumia.

    i love my L800. It's just... Updates splash in so quick that it makes me wonder if whether there'll still be updates for 7.x users. 'coz its a bit sad to see 7.8 being left behind that quick.

    Try restoring your phone back to factory settings then re-do the update procedure? Idk, it worked for my phone.

    Same exact boat as you, I've had my HTC HD7 for over 2 years now, stuck on a 3 year contract which ends in March. I'm planning on switching carries though when it ends, or gets close enough to be willing to pay out the contract.

    Running HTC Trophy on WP 7.8. I knew about the apps, but still "downgraded" to this phone from iPhone 5.

    Not really frustrated, but I am excited to see what the next big thing will look like! :)

    Yup. HTC Titan II with a LG Quantum as a back up. 7.x by choice. I don't like any of Nokia's WP8 phones and the 8X's screen is too small for me since I've started using the T2. Until Samsung brings an ATIV (or ATIV Note) variant to AT&T or HTC brings back the Titan style phone, I'll be sticking with 7.x for the foreseeable future.

    One thing I don't understand is, why do devs who don't use WP8-specific APIs don't build their apps for 7.x/8. It's so easy in Visual Studio/Team Foundation Server to create your initial app as 7.8 (which also works for 8). Afterwards, if you want to use 8 specific APIs, create a new branch for development, change the target platform to 8, then build and release from there.

    I got my Lumia 900 about 2 months before WP8 came out because we needed a windows phone to test on for work.

    I don't qualify for an upgrade anytime soon, but I'll be getting the EOS the day it comes out.

    I've had a Lumia 710 for 1 year. Yeah, it kinda upsets me that so many apps are arriving only for WP8, specially games like Temple Run and Jetpack Joyride that I wanted so badly to have in my phone. Still, I have most of the fundamental apps and the good thing is that we're already confirmed to getting the new Facebook and YouTube apps. Plus, my Optimus L5 has all the Android games I could need that aren't available on WP7. My contract is up in January so I'll probably get a WP8.

    710 here with 7.8

    Not to concerned about whats available and whats not. I've moved on from that phase and could frankly care less. I realize I just use the phone for 3 basic things. Communication (text/phone), internet and games. And then even the games I play I don't even care what they are. So in that sense WP is fine for me, im not bowing to the pressures of other OS just because everyone else is using it. I will give WP one more chance with WP8 or blue or whatever comes with the Nokia EOS (contract expires in November). I like WP but if there isn't any signs of improvement (feels like nothing is happening on the WP front in terms of improvements cuz MS works so goddam slow) I may jump ship after the Nokia EOS.
