    @Negative1ne: I still miss me some hardware keyboard as well. But I am afraid you wil be waiting an awful long time. There just isn't a demand for them anymore.

    I have stayed on WP7 happily due to the difference between the interface of Zune as compared to XBOX Music. I am liking the L1520 enough to buy, but am worried it will always be one of those "... yeah, I like it, but boy I sure miss Zune."

    I am out of contract, my L900 has a cracked screen, and yet I type as I listen to music and just worry....

    I also have my Lumia 900 as a back up phone. There are a lot of us who buy our phones unlocked/international version, so you end up paying the full price for the phone. It didnt make sense, after I had just bought my 900 to then go out and get the 920 at price.
    Besides, the Lumia 900, part from being WP7.8, is still a good phone. Apart from the battery life issue, it works very well.

    WP7 devices cannot update to WP8. It's a firmware limitation.

    Actually it is more of a hardware limitation.

    Well when lumia 820 is $235 which is the same price as 900 does it really seem that expensive
    Well when you already own a working Lumia 900 spending $235 on any phone seems expensive.

    well, thanks to ebay and amazon, i will not have to worry about finding older phones that are in good condition,
    and still work.

    someday, MAYBE someone will come out with a new phone (not android), that has a keyboard.

    How 'bout a Q10? Have you seen what they're going for on feeBay and Amazon? I'm just learning to wean myself from physical keyboards because of this. If only the Dell Venue Pro had Internet Sharing and a decent camera.

    One, because they don't have the money.

    Two, the decision to go multi-core by ditching WP7 too soon. I wouldn't say that going multi-core was a mistake but they should've done it earlier or they should've extended the support for WP7 for a little longer. WP8 got in time when WP7 was flourishing. Infact, WPs were getting popular at that time and boom, MS crashes in with WP8. Imagine the face of the people who bought a WP7 device just a few days before announcement? They were totally slapped or atleast they must've felt like that.

    I know that cause I got a Lumia 800 during that time. But gladly, I was able to pickup a Lumia 920. So, you see, there was lot of confusion at that time. MS should've found a way to encourage developers to develop their apps on single-core and load it for WP7 and WP8 as one rather than going for two apps. Games are games and WP7 users may not enjoy that but atleast they could cling on to their WP7 devices for a little longer.

    WP7 were to deserve the same respect XP got. It would've made the decision wiser.

    There are a handful of big names Apps that are on WP8 and not on 7.5/7.8.

    The reason I ask is because the HTC Titan 2 is still one of my favorite phones. If I didn't have the luxury of buying a few new phones every year I would be happy using a Titan 2, as long as the apps I use were compatible. The OP acts as if using WP 7.5 is cruel and unusual punishment..

    Yeah, I just came from the original Titan a few months ago. Now 1020. Even though the 1.5Ghz single core of the Titan didn't feel slow, at the tine, the 1020 definitely feel like a more powerful device. Beyond that, my Titan never got 7.8 and I didn't feel like chancing it and loading it myself. So 7.5 tiles feel a bit dated compared to the layout ability of 7.8/8. Beyond that, and the small handful of Apps I couldn't use, my Titan is perfectly usable. I'm sure I could hand it right to a less tech savvy family member and they'd think it was a great phone.

    But yeah, coming from WP8 and my 1020, I would be annoyed moving back now. WP8 is really nice.

    no thanks.

    only windows phone for me.

    i stayed with windows XP for 12 years+, and haven't updated most of my systems yet. only 2 computers i have run windows 7.

    i will stay with my phone until it breaks, and is no longer supported. until a few months ago. i had a feature phone
    that lasted for 4 years. i can wait another 6+ years before upgrading my phone if i have to.

    there is nothing compelling about switching to windows 8 phone at all. there are no apps that i use,
    or games, or anything else that only run on 8 that i would use. and besides, they'll probably be on
    windows 9 or 10 by the time i will think about getting another phone.

    You know what's funny about posts like these and the OP? They spend all of their money on the latest phones so they can feel superior to people on the interwebs. Yet in real life, they are in debt, they have garnished wages , bad teeth and live in their cars. I was stuck on 7 because ATT wouldn't let me upgrade halfway through my contract even though I have been with them when they were Cellular One then Cingular then ATT, basically since 1997. I just recently upgraded to 8 only because we now have instagram. If this platform wasn't getting it, I would have been a sheep. Sad but true. I know a lot of people who are still using flip phones and iphone 3's. It works for them. So be it. There are still people who don't have internet in their homes. But at least they can pay their bills and be productive members of society. If you judge someone by the type of phone they have, I feel sorry for your sex life, or lack thereof.

    Don't hold back, tell us how you truly feel.

    Ever stop to think these are young kids who probably still live at home and have no other responsibilities? Or, people who have busted their butts to gain a meaningful trade or a marketable degree and have good paying jobs? Not everybody is in hock to their eyeballs so they can afford some token luxuries. Some of us are wise with our spending and have access to some of the finer things without living in eternal debt. It seems you are judging a bit yourself.

    I'm allowed to judge. It's how the community is here. There's bashing of win 7 users all over this damn board. Who cares what someone uses? I posted on the 520 forum and asked if instagram worked on it and was immediatley told to get 6tag instead. I hate 6tag. I'm not going to suck a developer's **** like every else on here does. The only reason I stayed on WP was because of the vine's and instagram's of the world. If I wanted 3rd party apps I'd by a tracphone from Qvc.

    So because it's a developed by a 3rd party it must be inferior?

    I have to say that's literally one of the stupidest bits of logic I've seen today. Congrats, you win.

    I'm certainly not bashing you as I prefer WP7 myself (Titan). But I'm certainly not a meth-head on welfare living in a trailer park in Alabama.

    Hey, hey, hey..easy on the Alabama bashing. I was born and raised here. We may be 49th in education (thank God for Mississippi) but we can definitely play some football, right?

    Anyway, I prefer 6tag over the IG beta app.

    My apologies to the fine people of Alabama. But since I live in Florida, I had to pick a state with worse education. It was either you, Mississippi or Arkansas and I went alphabetically.
