mir, 19 Nov 2015That's what they said for wp7 and wp8. But keep going on and dwell in failure...ha ha...your reply is to the point bro!
jtrogr12, 19 Nov 2015Many people are forgeting that IOS and Android are also evolving so MS cant catch up just like... moreor maybe they will make lot of phone difference model with low price and good quality like other they have high end phone also not high end for people can afford....
may be in the next year hope windows phone will have great share in the market...
for me the reason why windows phone not earning to big or fast due to in some other country like small country asia, the windows phone not yet shipping and the smartphone cost high not people can afford.. and also we can count in our hand smartphone who are using windows phone. compare to android lot of smartphone running os android.. i do believe if some smartphone will use windows os it make them to earn or grow in the morket share...
the only smartphone using windows, of course microsoft,samsung tiv but this is for releaseing, acer, acatel, elephone, blu but not totaly sale ,and black berry but this is for negotation,now the
nokia not selling windows phone for sure they will share in the market less,,
maybe they will ship around the world windows phone which is all people can afford to buy aside the high end wp10.. i love windows os , not lag compare to other .....

Many people are forgeting that IOS and Android are also evolving so MS cant catch up just like that. If I buy an iphone I know it will be updated in 2 or more years, and with MS I will have to buy a new handset.
Like an comment below said, people bought the Windows phones because of the Nokia logo, and others did because of the LOOKS of the UI, but that cant keep you satisfied forever.
Whatever shortcoming is asked for in WP the answer is its on its way in WinMo10, people are getting tired. The OS keeps changing its focus and identity, W10 mobile is the last effort which might end the line if it fails. Nobody wants to dive into windows 10 promise with what has happened in the past years.
People bought windows phone just because of the nokia logo.. Just like apple.. Once the logo is gone people won't care about windows phone anymore..
they will only gain some sensible market share to compete for probably the 4th spot only if they get all apps on their system. Android porting seems to be axed. if ios porting works well and they get all those apps to windows os then that would help them some way. continuum on its own will not help as much as needed
They just fell too deep this time. Even if the new phones and OS will be the best "on the planet" the recovery will take too long and people just lost their patience. Been using the Os since WP7, had 4 top lumias, its time to try something new.
Is this world wide or US only? The article or data doesn't clearly says that.
In some European and Asian countries Windows Phone market share is more than of iOS. Android is the king in those markets and because of high price iOS failed to pass Windows phone. And some people are loyal to Nokia brand. Because Microsoft rebranded it some people think it is a Chinese clone (I have noted this in the way some sellers put ads. lol). It too could be a reason for the drop.
When it comes to the OS to an ordinary person it doesn't make much difference whether it is iOS, Android or WP. Regular apps are available in all these platforms (even on less popular OS'). But user the OS needs to be easy to use for the ordinary person.
