Even if Blackberry has microkernel and is more reliable, Microsoft is doing it better with Windows phone. Elsewhere, I'm interested for Microsoft band even price tag is kinda unexpected. I was using Android years ago, but I'm really tired from adapting by custom rom, wiping data and cache, etc. As iPhone is great, but spare parts are also expensive, I'd rather not take huge invest in something which could easily be broken.
Highly satisfied with my windows phone (L930) so far and I don't feel I miss anything that android/ios might have to offer. Definitely staying on windows for the years to come.
It's amazing to me that so many people using that buggy Vista alpha OS called Android. OEMs keep pushing bloatwares down the users' throat. WP is about 20 times more stable and faster OS.

Still that doesn't means I been shopping Winphones.
Want small phones that can be carried in ones pockets
And I really prefer S40(Nokia) and A200(SonyEricsson)firmware, than WinPhone as a simple OS.
On the contrary.
I am very satisfied, with my, now old, Samsung N7000 Note, from 2011.
What I have been doing this last years is replacing Windows computers with Android Tablets and stationary Android computers.
Because Android is more stable and faster than any $### Windows computer
More and more people cry because they dont receive android update after 2 years (or 18 months?). More and more people notice that windows doesnt lag on mid/low-end devices. More and more people notice microsoft keeps updating their "old" devices with the new os even after 3 or 4 years of use.
So we'll have Android-ish apps running on windows? that sounds bad. really bad.
Good to see android's share is dropping. The laggy OS isn't much of a good OS. People use it because of the hype, not because they actually know why they use it. Probably they now realize the OS they have used so long really sucks big time.
No surprise that US market share is shrinking. Most people I know that had one have moved on simply because there isn't a new and compelling high-end phone available. I've had my Lumia 920 since launch, and it's tired now. I'm patiently waiting for a worthy upgrade, though it's wearing thin...

That's the one that better fits your bill.
Meanwhile others realize that app support is important, so much so that even Microsoft realize it was going nowhere if it didn't manage to (somehow) bring the apps from Android and iOS into WP.
-- Maybe it will be interesting in the future, but definitely not now.

AnonD-200220, 06 May 2015It's more like a significant loss for android. While apple and window enjoys the loot.Yes, it's good to see android over takes ios in Japan, and despite iphone 6 release, ios keeps losing market share in US.

I am a WP user and many friends have WP's as well and they are using those phones like an Android or iOS device because it's a smartphone after all and can do many things because of that. I don't have any issues with the device because it's so responsive. Android lacks this responsiveness unless I pay a lot of money on a device which is widely recognized for being responsive. The only device I would search if I would want the same responsiveness is the iPhone but I don't like its UI.
