I never doubted this. My Lumia 830 has received at least five sizeable updates in the last five months and my Lumia 640 has received even more updates on Redstone. There have been at least eleven OS updates for Windows 10 Mobile over the last five months.

Lol Microsoft said the same thing about continued support for windows RT back then and look what happened... The support was pretty much discontinued one year later. Sure Microsoft, I believe you.

Apple had the opportunity to put MacOS on that 4GB iPad and did not do it. I am sorry for you but iOS is a very closed OS with minimum possibilities for the user. It also has a very ugly, boring and incomplete interface so...Quit the BS and face reality: iOS and MacOS do not have anything in common and are actually very separate. The only company that has the possibility to unite the Mobile and Desktop OS right now is Microsoft. The rest is just an iSheep fake story.
Still there are some people who like the tile interface. I really like my Lumia but too bad it didn't get the W10M update. I have no problem with using it, as long as there is myTube and some important apps. Even on my Android tab there is nothing more than Kindle and Firefox.
As far as I can tell Microsoft won't add customization features like Android.

I bought a Redmi 2 for $130, 2GB + 16GB + SD card + LTE + dual sim, and thanks to the modding community it is running Marshmallow with latest security update smoothly. Android has improved a lot since the days of Gingerbread.
If MS is having problems in developed market, it has no chance in emerging markets, where the growth actually is.

Original galaxy note started with Android 2.3 (gingerbread). It got updated until Jelly Bean (4.1.2). The HTC 8X doesn't even survive longer than that (Stuck with WP8).
So in the end, Windows Phone is worse than Android. At the very least with Android, if it's no longer supported, I can rely on the custom ROM community. Windows Phone is worst of both worlds, closed system like iPhone without the apps.

I will consider MS liars and quitters, till they give support to hit mobiles of nokia era. For instance the countless 808s, N8s, lumias out there.
in the 90s and early 2000s apple continued to invest in macs even when they were not selling and as we speak now they are a top brand
First of all, Microsoft should stop releasing real low end phones like the Lumia 650 running on a SD212 processor with only 1GB of ram. It's a smartphone! People run more than just a OS on it.
A political statement, MS have destroyed is reputation by itself. Change design, specs and aluminium body is must. What the he'll 15 months of bickering ending up in confusion. Still no final vanilla final version out. Sales and marketing lowest ebb.Surface need to be launched now to save its goodwill.
Microsoft should take a lesson from both Apple and Samsung. From Apple to build less models i.e. low, medium and high-spec and from Samsung change the build quality (like Lumia 650 + better spec) modify the price tag too, accordingly.
MS need a foot in the mobile arena..
MS got strong desktop OS / but weak mobile OS - draw the shortest straw..
Android got strong mobile OS / but weak desktop OS - luckily saved by Windows and popularity of mobile devices.
Only Apple have strong desktop / mobile OS ..
For example: Apple released continuity feature on OSX / iOS.. Samsung's Flow feature cannot even complete evenly... because they have to cross develop on Windows.. and mod Android OS.. leading to buggy and uneven experience.
