What does end of support for Windows 10 Mobile entail?
As of December 10, 2019, Windows 10 Mobile users are no longer eligible to receive new security updates, non-security hotfixes, free assisted support options, or online technical content updates from Microsoft for free. Third parties or paid support programs may provide ongoing support, but it is important to recognize that Microsoft support will not publicly provide updates or patches for Windows 10 Mobile.

What does end of support mean for customers?
End of support means there will be no more product or security updates for the Windows 10 Mobile operating system (OS).
After the end of support, automatic or manual creation of new device backups for settings and some applications will continue for 3 months, ending March 10, 2020. Some services including photo uploads and restoring a device from an existing device backup may continue to work for up to another 12 months from end of support.

What should Windows 10 Mobile customers do now?
With the Windows 10 Mobile OS end of support, we recommend that customers move to a supported Android or iOS device. Microsoft’s mission statement to empower every person and every organization on the planet to achieve more, compels us to support our Mobile apps on those platforms and devices.

I probably buy a plain Android phone without vendor's own software layer on it, because I want to receive security updates each month. Google had to force biggest Android phone vendors to update the OS at least each quarter for the first year and (unspecified number of times) in second year. It helps that Micorosoft apps (Outlook, Skype) are available on Adnroid.

Thanks @Spawn for the update.

Personal I feel a bit lucky as I'm getting a Samsung S8 Plus for free in a few months so that prolonged the use of my precious Lumia 930 but several apps that I should use is now dead and it's a bit pain and hassle. Well well it was nice as long it lasted...
