    Fair play for taking another stab at WinMo but I think it's near-death :/

    I'm not sure it's near death, doesn't help with MS putting EVERYTHING onto Android and iOS first, but I can see it going MS Surface only and being aimed at businesses.

    The funny thing is I'd actually pick a mid range WinMo phone over Apple or Android because of the rest of my MS integration at home/work but the one I'd be looking at seems so overpriced compared with the same spec Android phone. Admittedly I'm not a snapchat or similar user but for my usage (telephone calls/texts, navigation, web, email and 'office' stuff) it would suit me fine.

    I loved my Windows Phones, but the platform was dead for me when (during an absurdly long OS redesign which apparently still isn't complete) they announced a guarantee that the app gap was over - that virtually anything on Android/iOS could and would come to WP, thanks to a cross-platform authoring system. The deployment window came and went, and Microsoft shrugged and pootled on.

    Nobody can dangle a carrot that large in front of its audience and not deliver. Its already small base suffered an exodus of people like me who had had enough of being treated poorly as customers. It's a shame, because it's a truly lovely OS in many ways, but they got into a whack-a-mole situation with bugs, and the new bugs that raised their heads were major. At one point, I couldn't reliably make or receive calls for a month and a half - an ability which a lot of people would say was a key reason for buying a phone in the first place. This bug resurfaced later, multiple times.

    The last phone I had was a flagship of its year, the Lumia 920. It had a serious overheating issue affecting all owners. There was a solution: turn off Bluetooth, turn off NFC. But even as this became clear, MS never admitted it was a fault. It was more important to them to keep selling a phone as having NFC/Bluetooth functionality than to consider the customers who, after suffering a phone getting to cooking temperature while idle in their pockets, would go to Android and never look back.

    It's dead as a platform. Apps are being discontinued left right and centre. Amazon app has gone, facebook app is months out of date. Lots of other insanely popular apps are not available. You actually tried to buy one recently?
    Old puter - still good enuff till I save some pennies!

    Agreed. I have a win8 phone from work previously, and enjoyed it. Don't want games/social stuff on there, and the other stuff was easy to use and fairly intuitive.

    The one thing I would like working is Lync, and on my Andoid phone it was such a bag of pooh that I gave up trying to get it to work and uninstalled it. But then it is pretty dire on my Windows laptop too, so consistent at least. I just don't think I could trust MS to give me a working device.
