    Is here someone using a Microsoft mobile phone e.g. Lumia?

    I am using a Lumia 650 with Windows 10 Mobile and several other Microsoft apps and I think it serves my needs.

    No need for an iPhone. And never owned one.

    I used to own an HTC Touch Pro but that went to a Sprint customer in 2013 so he could keep his SERO plan.

    Right now I am considering the Huawei P10 Plus, but that's Android.

    I have a low-end Lumia 520 that I used for quite a while. Loved my "Zune" phone. It had insane battery life, upwards of 5 days of heavy usage. Now i keep it around as a companion media player alongside my Zune HD.

    I have an old 520 too. Don't really use it much though, it's a back up. But I've had all sorts of windows phones, 720, 725, 1020, 1620 and a few others. I still have a Surface 2 as well.

    Had Lumias in the past, mainly out of brand loyalty to/ love of Nokia hardware. The software was actually ok up to WP 10, at which point Microsoft just seemed to no longer care. I was floored by how little effort they put into catching up to iOS and android though, it always seemed to be an afterthought to them, not a platform they were actually trying to get to a self sustaining market share.
