Maybe it is not the most developed os,but to call wp8 not intuitive...is an unfounded affirmation.if wp8's interface with that big and simple text is not an intuitive os,i don't know what else is.
Here, maximum comments are crap given by paid trolls.. Who don't have any idea about wp8..
Windows; what we need here is adaptability. People need to adjust with your mobile OS, know what they are getting new; just like they are with PC Windows!
It is well known that lumia device comes with great new feature but we don't know it until we have put our hands on it. Aggressive marketing on exclusive features posed by Windows mobile is all what is needed.
Ms think that they are very high class level and very powerfull. But in the end they already know that they are minority. It is very late but at least they do something to get back in to the game. But finally, we are the end customer will choose which one is more suitable for us and have great ecosystem os support.
Anonymous, 16 Dec 2013samsung windows phone ativ s very poor sales - why ?FEw Points:
No Marketing and publicity. Samsung never promoted this device seriously.
Lumia 520, a low end - midrange device is popular choice among WP buyers. Samsung doesnt have an equivalent model.
MS was too biased towards nokia till date, no special campaigns,promotions for other OEMs.

you buy it from the app store or illegally download that shit. so why do you expect different from microsoft??
Common Sensei, 15 Dec 2013I believe this would be a strategic & profitable move by Microsoft. Especially if they con... moreHigher end phones would be nice BUT, I didn't get my high-end Android phone only because it was high end. When, a Windows Phone comes with USB OTG and HDMI (I still hate MHL because...it's plain stupid but, that's what phones use now) support, I'll actually look at Windows Phones as posible next phones.
Please Samsung don't!!! That would be the worst decision ever made by Samsung. Windows present operating system sucks! For starters, it's no beautiful to look, it's not intuitive, etc. Windows please create a new OS, for me you failed, and if soon you don't start making changes I will have to change to Apple's laptops
I think now Microsoft planning to Buy Samsung after Nokia...LOL
if someone pay you to buy his product that's mean they are not confident on their product.
Samsung made ativ it didnt sell well just like HTC WP it didnt sell well to. I think samsung is wasting money in making WP. I'd rather see samsung improve there design because they all look same just like iphone and update there touchwiz ui because there are many bloatware and it lags.
Fellow Android users/OEMs.
Please just say HELL NO.
Let Ms wither on the vine.
We should all be disgusted
at Ms Nasty/unprofessional
ads on the Telly now. Why
support an evil competitor?

Developers are the sole reason why an OS gets ... moreApp revenue in Android is low comparing to iOS, in Android the apps with ads is becoming the only viable alternative to make apps profitable, people spend more money on Apple's App store.
So developers crave more for money and profit, more than if is a close or open OS.
MichaelHB, 16 Dec 2013 Thanks God that now i'm with SONY and Android. Now Samsung is the M$'s target, to force them... morewindows os is crappy dont post ur foolish comments here do u have hand experience..windows is better os they have some limitations it will.be solved their next updation 8.1..more applications comes every day....i have a android device Xperia neo l ...its a poor phone lumia 520 is better than xperia l at this segment...do ur work don't be stupid..
Samsung must produce WP and captured atleast 33% market. It's a future!
Sprog, 16 Dec 2013The Samsung Ativ S it is a great windows 8 phonesamsung windows phone ativ s. poor sales phone Samsung Windows phone is waste device..
This is why I would never respect WP as an actual OS. Android never had to pay OEMs to manufacture Android devices and I'm sure that would be case with iOS if it wasn't all Apple-exclusive. Microsoft, on the other hand, has to pay OEMs to make WP Phones and Developers to create apps for the platform. The platform itself never attracted anyone - just the huge price money.
to be honest, i was interested to lumia just because made by nokia.. not because of the WP OS
