    - Lumia 735 with Windows 10 Mobile Insider is chugging along nicely, thank you..
    - I'll stick with mine, it does everything I want it to..

    - everyone who sees it has to look twice, 'cos it's a really neat piece of kit..

    I could be wrong but I one the things that I have noticed since getting a WP (first a BLU Win HD followed by a Lumia 640), is that a lot of people that have been using them for a while aren't getting a new phone ever year or less like a lot do with iPhone and Android based phones. That would certainly have an impact on the year over year sales of phones.

    Like I said I could be wrong but from looking at other sites there are a lot of people with 2-3 year old Lumia's waiting for W10M to drop, instead of buying a new(er) phone.

    Those are the smart people. They don't throw away what is a perfectly good piece of gear.

    Couldn't agree more. I tried to do my part to help with the lagging sales, I picked up for 640's back during the Black Friday sales. Never had a high end phone and never will, but so far the 640 is far and away better than any previous Android phone I have had. Also prefer Windows Phone/Mobile over Android by a long shot. Took my wife a couple of days to adapt to Windows Phone from Android, but I have heard less complaints about things not working since the change.

    Also haven't been affected by the so called "app gap" as any apps (except for the odd game) that I was using on Android I have found the same or equivalent, and quite a few of the equivalent are better that what I was using on Android. As far as apps go, pretty sure this link has been posted before,

    While Windows has some apps, games, etc. they are not what I call productive applications. On my roomies iPhone or my Android phone, we can buy tickets, buss passes, pay at the cash register with our phones, banking, mobile deposits.. I mean truly useful apps. My roomies use their iPhones as their bus passes. Their is a Windows Uber app, but most of our local taxis have only iPhone or Android apps. Windows simply doesn't have the sophistication of business apps. If I want to go to Ellen DeGeneres, or Justin Bieber sites, fine, but really nothing very useful.

    That is it's Achilles heel..

    So, no big deal I can do all that with a bank card with out paying a fee, or spending $400.00 for a over priced Phone. . .

    I'm very happy with my Windows Phone. I for one plan on staying with a Windows Phone for as long as I can. I never had any problems with my Android Phones, I just like my Windows Phone Better.
    Same here. I'm on my 2nd Windows Phone (Nokia Lumia 920 through AT&T, now on HTC M8 with Verizon) and I love the phone, just don't like the lack of support by Microsoft.

    Windows phone is the only smartphone I've ever owned (Win 8, 8.1, and testing out 10 preview). My wife insisted on the *shudder* iPhone and my kids got Galaxy phones. I've played with them all and WP is still my favorite. I've never felt like I was missing any apps that the MS store didn't provide, and only 2 games on Android that I would like to see (Fallout Shelter and SimCity Build It) on either Win 10 and/or 10 mobile.

    I've been using my old Lumia 521 as a Win 10 mobile testing device and have a Lumia 640 as my daily driver. While, I'd love to get a 950 or even a Surface phone down the road, I just can't justify any more than $200 for a cell phone.
