Fact and the matter is that there is no competition in the smartphone space as of October 9, 2017. And the price points of the best smartphones on the market prove my point.

I never really liked the UI the mobile version of Windows offered, so that's why I never made the switch from Android. Funny how many others seem to actually prefer WP's UI.

High end windows phones had great design, durabil7and cameras. Also a lot of great features, but lack of apps killed this platform.

abigfanoftechs, 20 Apr 2018You're getting 2 days because you don't have any apps on ru... moreI would not go so far to say that. But I am not a gamer or some social butterfly sucking my battery dry with facebook tweets and what not...

I usually have 3 exchange accounts syncing. MyTube, I stream Groove music from onedrive, I use mTalk every day for forums use which has 3 accounts, not to mention daily calls and messaging. On a good run I get 2 days worth of use on a charge. The standby drain on the 1520 has always been crazy good. Even better than the 950 XL IMO.

Some forget how well Windows 10 Mobile allows you to manage Apps and Services. You can turn almost all apps off either in the background, data, etc...
If you interop unlock the phone you can uninstall any app and if you want remove legacy junk like HeyCortana or others that don't run well on Windows 10 Mobile.

Are we to expect a new device then? (Because... stock clearance?)

Lumia 1520 has a quite old 28nm processor vs OnePlus 5T has the latest 14nm power efficient processor, while having similar display and battery. OnePlus 5T wouldn't hold a candle to the 1520, if it had the same processor as the 1520.

Also, he is talking about Windows 10 mobile, if we compare Windows Phone 8.0, it would smoke the hell out of your OnePlus 5T in terms of smoothness and battery efficiency on the same processor.

And so what if you get that much battery backup out of your phone? I get even more with my Redmi 4x. Does that mean it's better than your beloved OnePlus 5T?

Aslipundit, 20 Apr 2018A tragic end to a modern, user friendly and smooth mobile O... moreWhilst W8 had no issues, W10 during the testing phase crashed ALL Windows 8 phones and simply behaved like malware even in the 950 on which it was supposed to run out of the box

Instead of not releasing W10, Microsoft did just that
Imagine Apple releasing a bug infested ios..
Windows 8 could have been incrementally updated, W10 could not even after 2 years if trying

As you can see there is no updating any W10 device as that implies a fix

Windows 8 is viable and still works, indeed W8 can be upgraded, W10 can't

Microsoft stopped selling phones as this added to the complaints

Had Microsoft bit the bullet and not released W10, Windows phones would be alive to

A vast majority of features promised for W10 simply failed and we're removed

Through all this remember that Windows 8 phones are 100% secure no monthly security updates

I never liked Windows Phone (aka Windows Metro) but I see this as bad news for everyone. We've come to a point when buying a phone the choice is either Apple or Android, nothing else. Two never make a healthy competition... see: Intel vs AMD, MS vs Linux etc.

Jerbust, 20 Apr 2018Such a shame that Windows Phone is dead. Windows phones ope... moreI agree. Windows Phone used so run so smooth, and it was beautiful. It was a great and unique creation but the lack of apps was that one big problem. Microsoft shot themselves in the foot by killing off their Android app porting program, which could've seen APKs run on WP. I used to have Nokia Lumia - it was the most perfect phone one could ask for, but lack of apps eventually made me move to the droid.

XP Embedded POSReady is still supported and patched (and you can enable XP 32-bit to have these patches).

Yes I want to avoid Win10 as long as possible
