Tech.analyst, 12 Feb 2016Yes i can see this moment from the binning. I dont know why Microsoft is thinking like this, ... moreSPeople I am businessman on the move between 4 offices. Android does not offer me my offices on mobile and PC. Windows does. That is why Microsoft movile will take over eventually. That is why Ihave a midrange mobile phone and decent W10 laptop. No use paying laptop fees on a mobile phone.
stop making countless varients of each phone, 640 now 650, and get the OS working
Microsoft should have purchased Motorola. Then they could have make some excellent ergonic phones. Their square edged designs are horrible!
Anonymous, 11 Feb 2016They shouldn't fire other employees. They should fire people who are responsible for marketing... more>They should fire people who are responsible for marketing management as they make decision and they are responsible for anything that comes out from Microsoft smartphones division.
These people are making firing decisions and I doubt they decide to fire themselves.
Windows Phone is the worst mobile OS in history. If we look how many money Microsoft waste, destroy Nokia (Symbian, MeeGo). When they bought Nokia they still have around 30% market. Even today its ~ 2% market share, after so many years so much money put in, sacrifice Nokia, Symbian, Windows Mobile (older version) and nothing. Shop is still empty, no apps, no games, and almost and nobody wants to use it.
There is nothing wrong with Windows Phone, i have used all 3, Android, iOS and WP. I find WP more responsive and does tasks with some urgency. The question is, just because a phone can run with a lower powered processor doesn't mean you should release the phone with that. Ever wondered what would happen if you pair up an octa core processor with WP 8.1 (WP 10 is still be alpha stage if you ask me), it would be awesome. Thats were WP falls behind.
Microsoft is a software company and it should have remained that way. Buying Nokia was the best worst mistake they ever did. They should give back Nokia devices and services and do what they do best, be a software company. That way Microsoft can concentrate on the software and let Nokia build the hardware. Microsoft has actually ruined the name of Nokia by building unreliable and plasticy phone. I have 1020 and 540, the difference is worlds apart. Infact Microsoft named Nokia Lumia 532 and Microsoft names Microsoft Lumia 540 are way different, the former has way better build quality and touch response. 532 has glance screen but 540 does not, why on earth doesn't 540 have a glance screen considering 540 cost almost twice as 532.
I have always been a Nokia fan and I still am, just waiting and waiting and waiting for Nokia to start selling their phones again.
Microsoft: please don't kill the Nokia hardware guys they are all awesome and they built reliable phone, if you want to blame someone for this downfall and fire employees, then fire the guys who initiated the purchase of Nokia and then fire yourself. This is purely Microsoft's fault.
Omar, 12 Feb 2016You must be kidding me... Windows Phone has the best platform ever for developers... Everythin... moreI disagree....
MS have plenty of time to estabilsh them selfes on the market but unlike Google and Apple, who knew how to atract developpers to build new apps MS was unable to atract new developpers....
Don´t get me wrong it´s one of the most beautifull and fast UI.
Don´t forget that MS has been around on the mobile industry for ages, (Microsoft Mobile) and they just sat and did nothing! When Apple came way after they decided to do someting....
So being late doesn´t necessarily mean an excuse for their losses....They dig their own grave...
Ms was just late at everything late flagship introduced late window 10 introduced and that also incomplete the newest flagship is ugly and iris scanner is beta ffs. Ms have great ideas but they implement it late and wrong while apple have the simplest idea but they implement and advertise it brilliantly I have window 10 930 and it sucks Soo buggy 950 was ugly Ian buying Lumia since day one bought that Lumia 800 first great phone though OS was crap 920 925 1020 all amazing phones 930 meh 950 meh Ia m quitting Lumia's pos going for blackberry there bb10 was amazing in q10 now priv looks sexy too. Goodbye Ms. stick to desktop sucker useless company have better apps for other platforms than windows
Tech.analyst, 12 Feb 2016its not app developer friendly....
yes you guys missed the most importat part... and you mis... moreYou must be kidding me... Windows Phone has the best platform ever for developers... Everything that is happening is pretty much because they entered the market last and when both iOS and Android are pretty much polished.
Android has the worst developer experience, just take a look at their emulator (thank God they made a new one), it was something completely unusable. It took too long too boot, was super slow..
Sometimes you just need to be at the right place at the right time, MS unfortunately missed the right time.
MS just sell the mobile div back to Nokia┬ů thats if they will have it. Hopefully we can get an android 1020
Yes i can see this moment from the binning.
I dont know why Microsoft is thinking like this, they are thinking people will love to see the desktop in mobile... and its not true as Microsoft thinks..people want something new and innovative like android.. and also there platform is like apple its a closed building.... no one can enter it , no one can understate what is there strategies in that building.....
very happy to hear this .... they should close this department... (currently i am having one Lumia)
its not app developer friendly....
yes you guys missed the most importat part... and you missed how google is making billions of dollars from android....
Stevie Flop, 11 Feb 2016Hopefully Nokia will acquire Microsoft mobile division. And then get Stephen Elop to be the.CEO.On 17 June 2015, Elop was laid off from his position at Microsoft as part of massive job cuts in the Microsoft Devices Group. So, currently he's not working for ms.
Windows Phone does not do the lag like android.
Windows is still strong and supported!
All Jealous lies started by laggy android users to hide the smoothness of windows phone
to say they have the smoothness OS.
mir, 11 Feb 2016You should go work on your english grammar first, before criticizing other people's knowledge.Your "english" is not that good enough in some point.
Dan, 11 Feb 2016Not really. Nokia failed to adapt to changes. Hardware wasn't the problem, software was. When ... moreYes customers moved to bloatware OS that requires 8 core 2GHZ to work smoothly while nokia achieved on last Symbian smooth experience with just 600Mhz processor and 256MB RAM. Think about that?! And what about if they used modern chipset in their smartphones? Experience would be amazing as Symbian is very light OS. If they made and redesign everything in last Symbian touch in just year, they could make big changes in OS later.
