Huge fan of phalcon at heart. But I need to accept, using phalcon on production was a risky move. Essentially, as a phalcon developer you are handicapped in many ways 1. Debugging phalcon 2. Community support (except for 1person Andres, who I think is over stressed)
I have faced problems ranging from mysql LIMIT 0,10 not working to complex ones like here https://forum.phalconphp.com/discussion/6543/phalcon-20-segmentation-fault-empty-response#C23207
Based on my judgement, Phalcon is a risky call and an unstable framework and my experiences for last couple of months are moving me away from Phalcon.
