Hmmmm. Windows Phone will fail no matter what. Better jump from sinking ship early on.
But I don't mind HTC One M8 with Windows Phone. Having choice is good for consumer.
Would be interesting to see in say 6 months WP v Android sales for identical phones.
Anonymous, 29 Jul 2014Buy it and trick your friend that you can change OS heheYeah, that would be a good one.
DoctorVad Gers, 29 Jul 2014'PS: android on 80% of the phones out today, android soon in many cars, doesn't that sound to ... moresrsly? and how is my lack of options when it comes to future plans of implementing android in car systems about popularity?
this car implementing was just an example.
perhaps if you'd take the time to read the entire post and consider an objective point of view, you would consider that most important is for us, end-users, to encourage more than one OS to develop.
popularity is one thing, but considering that these days more and more people are closing themselves in little boxes and stop considering alternatives and rather call for preconceptions such as "WP has no APPS!" should alarm people who still have their own opinion, not only what they are served :)
Anonymous, 29 Jul 2014WP has no games or appps!!!!This is just fear setting in that WP is taking some of the beloved Droid market.
I think it's good, even with the lead Droid has over WP from a market share perspective, WP has to make a stand somewhere and grow into the market.
Best wishes for WP8.1 and future updates.
cyborg.bit, 29 Jul 2014255000 apps+games on WP store as of June 2014.
1300000 apps+games in play store as of June 20... moreAnd? So what if there are more apps. You can't install all of the 1,3m Play store apps+games on your phone can you?
I'm quite sure we can say that there ARE apps and games on WP store - like you say, +250 000.
Everything you need is on WP store.
That is that.
Good job HTC :)
Now for Samesung to also promote some WP handsets :)
I won't mind a Sony Z2 with WP.
Windows Phone has Best device...Lumia
does HTC win OneM8 beat Flagship Lumia No...
Cost matters..Htc sells mobile for price similar to iphone.Iphone is king of smartphones
because of its built quality and Brand value.
You have to respect that.
I wanted to buy M8,i saw its photos not good but okay for facebook but price...omg.
Fight Fight Fight!! :) I have WP8 device and there are enough apps and games. This is just the number. few 100.000 more or less I just don't give a F***. Everything I need is there so that's important to me.

You seem to be confusing monopoly with popularity....

So whoever thinks WP store has appz and gamezzzz is super-lame
The first good looking WP device in my opinion. Still wouldn't buy it, because of the horrible OS and I already own an M8.

cyborg.bit, 29 Jul 2014You liked WP 7.5 over Android ! Man, you're a genius !!! Even WP fanboys don't like WP 7.XWP fans don't like WP 7.xx? that statement makes no sense. WP 7.xx was abandoned by Microsoft... it was definitely wasnt hated by its users. Besides hating android is not very uncommon for low end android users.
cyborg.bit, 29 Jul 2014You just set a new standard for lameness he was trolling that troll. didnt really mean it :D that troll has been on the internet for a long long time. his profile pic is that of Data(star trek NXG)
Give this to Europe with gsm and i will definately leave my Z2 for this. I was hoping for phone like this and im glad HTC is up for it.
Anonymous, 29 Jul 2014WP has no games or appps!!!!Yoh, what pills are you on? Lame comment....
it's funny how obvious biased opinions are shared here from users who didn't keep up with the evolution of the Windows Phone platform. since the first example on to how WP is worse than other mobile OS is the lower number of APPs available, i have to ask: how many of the vast options of APPs in google playstore could an Android user try in his particular Android life?^^ so yeah, be glad Android and iOS have xxx.xxx.xxx APPs while any user will not even try 10% of them.
for anybody who is curious to see how the WP platform evolved, i would advise trying such a device at least in a store to see how the live tiles concept works and you can also try finding available APPs on the windows phone dot com store to see if vital software is present on WP :>
PS: android on 80% of the phones out today, android soon in many cars, doesn't that sound to anybody like monopoly? having more options, and users encouraging all of them to evolve, would only be in our advantage :)
