At Windows Central, formerly known as Windows Phone Central, we've used and reviewed a ton of different Windows-powered mobile devices.

In fact, it's probably safe to say that combined the Windows Central staff has used the majority of Windows phones ever released. And when you use so many different phones, it can be fun — and a bit challenging — to try to look back and remember your path on the platform that led you to your current phone.

There's a lively discussion going on in our forums on this topic right now.

Thought it'd be fun to share our Windows Phone histories with one another. Doing so is simple, just follow the format I use below: Example: Dell Venue Pro > Nokia Lumia 510 > HTC 8XT > Nokia Lumia 822 > Alcatel One Touch Pixi 3 > Microsoft Lumia 950 XL > HP Elite X3 (my personal history is a lot shorter!) lol What's your WP history!?

The concept is simple: try to remember every Windows phone (or other phone) you've ever used, and then list them using this simple format: Windows phone 1 > Windows phone 2 > Windows phone 3 > Windows phone 4.

It's that easy. So pop on over to our forums and chime in. You just might remember a gem of a phone that you'd forgotten you ever used.
