The reason I am still using a windows phone

I use a Nokia Lumia 930 running the earlier Windows Phone 8.1 (could run WP10 but then I lose Here Maps) which I picked up on Ebay for £75.00 in mint condition, it takes pretty good photos, it has a dedicated shutter release button which will also wake the phone up and allow shots to be taken without having to unlock it. If I lose/break the phone I can buy another without any great outlay, nice screen, nice build, good battery life

Despite what people say, pretty much everything still works, Whatsapp, Here Maps, Soundhound, Email, my banking is done via the browser and displays just fine, Facebook

Image quality is OK for a 5 year old phone I think, certainly not worth carrying a £700-£1000 for what I use it for, even the higher spec Lumia 950 sells for around £100 now with 3gb of Ram and a slightly better camera again, I will carry on with Windows phone for a while longer yet
