Curious to find out what peoples preference is these days.

I have been using Windows Phone since WP7 was released on a Lumia 800, I came from Previously using Symbian on Various Nokia handsets. I'm currently using WP10 on a Microsoft Lumia 950XL but the handset is getting a little tired now and I feel Microsoft is pushing me elsewhere!

Im back using Windows phone currently using the 930 but missing my 950. I did go back to Android for a few months using an Lg G4 but swapped it for the 930.

I fancy the 950XL so you'll need to give me notice when your changing Martin ;)

of course I will! To be honest I love it recently fitted a new genuine battery so its back to good as new, and am really set with Windows Phone its just a shame that the App gap is getting worse when it had gone from being poor with WP7 to getting much better by the time WP8.1 was around then so much promised for WP10.

I can live with the lack of Snapchat and a few others but when they pulled the eBay app that was a poor move (although the eBay app was miles behind the iOS and Android version) then the MyEE app went as they no longer offer windows phones.

The strangest one yet was this week they have pulled the LinkedIn app (now again the LinkedIn app was poor compared to the competition yet MICROSOFT own LinkedIn.

the rest of the apps are fine, but I just have a feeling that my mobile banking app may be next to go and that for me would be the final nail.

Overall though Windows Phone is such a well polished OS, NEVER crashes or causes issues, its so easy to use, I love the way it all syncs with my machine at home, but I just feel Microsoft is doing everything possible to kill it off, which really baffles me, one of the worlds richest companies giving up so easy.

Yea I must admit Windows phones do lack on the app department. I used the eBay app but as you say it was pulled. this was around the time I went back to Android.. I just couldn't live with Android and went back to Windows.
I must admit im not a big app person.. I use Whatsapp and facebook and then just use basic stuff on the phone.. I miss having a large screen though..

I have a Note 4 with a very unspectacular stock android 6.something...
It's the only piece of hardware I never modded (not like my first real smartphone, Samsung Galaxy S+ with Android 4 on it and a bricked LG G2...)

Ive moved over to Android recently with a Nokia 7 PLUS - really enjoying it, especially since it runs stock Android 8.1 Oreo - light years ahead of when i tried Android a few years back on a samsung.
