what phone you were using before?
i was using htc mozart, nokia 530 before switch to android because of xiaomi introduction to android market (with high spec hardware) enough convince me to change. but i did like windows phone ecosystem more than android.

I had an Asus 565P and HTC Diamond, which were my first smart phones before turning to the dark side with iPhone 4 laugh.gif

After that I’ve tried Lumia 525, 735 and 1020 but to be honest none of them had the adequate battery life for me, despite having better power management than Android phones.

App support is crucial for survival. They realised that too little too late.

Once the apps start becoming unusable then you might be forced to reconsider.

Meanwhile, as a Windows Phone/Blackberry 10 ex-user, I just ditched my Android for a Lumia 830. It should arrive next week, I'm strangely excited for a phone that's losing support in 7 months lol.

Good luck with your purchase and don't worry man, Windows mobile devices will carry on working after this December. I'm still using a 4-years old Lumia 735 on a daily basis.

And Lumia 830 may have lost support (i.e. monthly OS security updates) already, not sure. Anyway, there's a hack to get on the most recent version of Windows 10 Mobile, which is 15254.566 (as of May 2019).
