Anyone else out there still using a WP7 device? I'm still under contract with mine for a few more months.

 

I got my HTC Titan back in Feb. 2012 and back then it was amazing to me, now it feels lonely and forgotten, but still does the job. I know I'm missing out on a lot of apps that have made it to WP8 like Pandora and Mint, which I would really like to have.

 

I've come really close to picking up a 520 just to get me through until I can get a fancy upgrade but I've held off so far with my trusty Titan.

Amazon had the 520 on sale SIM-free a few days ago at a low price.  You should see if it's still available because WP8 is really a great upgrade over WP7.

Still on my L800. Sure, I might be missing on a couple of apps, but since I'm not really an app person, I'm fine with it.

Still using my Nokia Lumia 800 with 7.8 update and going strong. Though the battery life has started to last only a day. Only thing I am holding on is the announcements of WP9 so I can choose the correct upgrade path and not stuck with a device that can't get WP9.

Still on a Lumia 900. I'm not on a contract but I am waiting to see what the WP8.1 phones are like before I upgrade. I would ideally want something like the 1020, but with SD card slot, quad core, 2gb ram, latest graphics.

Still using my HTC Titan after 2 years, and in no hurry to upgrade. It still works very well.

I've started noticing battery issues, sometimes battery saver won't come on at all.

 

One day last week I set my alarm, but by the time I woke up the phone was completely dead, it hadn't switched battery saver on either.

Sorry, by why are you fretting over graphics on a phone?
