I loved Windows phones. my first one was the Samsung SCH-i600 back in 2004; beautiful phone. after that one more Samsung and HTC window phones. Unfortunately for Windows the Apple and Android era came very aggressive. Apple (fancy) became huge and Android was ok. windows didn't develop apps and lost the competition. Even though my last windows phone was the Lumia 950. very nice phone with no apps and no battery. Yup, the battery didn't last 4 Hrs and for a working phone its was the worst. I am super happy with my Pixel 3, waiting for the 4.
I agree, with the comments praising Windows phone. I had a Windows 6 and then 8 and 8.1.
The experience of use was so much better than Android and iOS which I now use. The reason I moved to iPhone was an app I rely on daily was no longer updated for Windows phone and there is no equivalent on Windows mobile platform. I also agree that if MS had gone ahead with the running of Android apps I would not have changed. Download on Android and Apple and it can be very difficult to find the files. Win 10? Download Folder. I would like it not to RIP but to be resurrected with Android or iOS app compatability.
AFD, 28 Jun 2019What a shame. I am in the process of going Android after many years of Lumia 820/930 and 950.... moreI know. This is so sad. I love the windows OS. Microsoft should have kept going with the Android app bridge. This is a great phone. It's perfect if you don't use a lot of apps.
Are these phones still available in Kenya. Currently amusing Lumia 535 and I need an upgrade. Windows phone so far are the best.
northof62, 18 Jun 2019Just got an update as of 17th of June 2019. This phone still has some good specs compared to ... moreAgree with you, I also received the latest update. The camera can still fight with newer Android smartphones of today. App gap is also not a problem for me and I love the fact that I can disable a certain app from running on background. Try to do that on standard Android.
What a shame. I am in the process of going Android after many years of Lumia 820/930 and 950. I will always remember what a nice operating system Windows was and how I enjoyed the phones. Android is a necessary evil to me! Will try my best.

This phone still has some good specs compared to todays phones.
Very good 20 MP camera and 2K Amoled screen. Still copes well with most tasks and battery & heat problems are long gone. In 2015 it was ahead. Of course I'm missing out a few apps but using a website usually works and I dont have to worry so much about permissions.
Have had this phone for a short while, love it. I'm going to keep using it as long as i can, until it can't do its job anymore. I'm hearing that MS is killing Win 10 phone support in June 2019, and that apps will start going dark. It's a shame, as this is a really good phone, aside from the usual MS glitches. The 20mp camera is one of the best things about it. I think that if MS had stayed with mobile phones, especially with the great specs like this one, they eventually would get a bigger share of the market. Guess that's what we get for corporate greed.
Still using my Lumia 950 in April 2019. I'll eventually have to upgrade to another phone (probably a Nokia Android) by 2020, but I love this phone so much it will be hard to let go. The 20mp Zeiss Pureview camera and resolution quality are what keeps me on this platform. Even compared with my wife's iPhone 8, the Lumia produces better quality photos and a much more natural HD mode. After I find an upgrade I am probably going to still keep this around just for taking pictures.
Microsoft Lumia 950 and Nokia: The first phone in 2015 with Type-C charge, iris scanner, wireless charging, continuum, glance screen, double tapping on screen for unlocking and relocking, and many other technologies, who came later in other operating systems. This Great 4 years old Phone i still using everyday as a daily driver. I waiting for the next level of technology from microsoft with a surface phone...﻿
No matter what happens I'm still using my windows phones. Perfect for pictures and only specific apps allowed... very secure.
I have loved windows phones for years. I am not big on apps, so the lack of selection there doesn't bother me. However, I do take a lot of pictures. The way that windows handles organizing pictures by month and year, being able to navigate to any given month/year by just tapping, is invaluable to me. Also, the way the cloud works to back up all my files is awesome. My word, excel, and pdf files sync seamlessly with my surface tablet and desktop. Whenever I switch phones, I can use the "transfer my files" app to transfer contacts, and text messages. Additionally, the live tiles on the home screen make things much easier to navigate. I still have much love for the Windows phones!
This phone would have been really good for 2015. It's just Windows 10 Mobile itself that ruins it. Very much a disappointment. :/
i love windows phoneit ver strong so windows shouldnt stop cuz am a great windows fun
