MS what you really need to do now is give back nokia what it should be and leave the mobile world, eos.
I dont give a cr** about the apps.
I need new windows phone that have physical camera button and have flash. I have lumia 520 for over 2 years by now and i like the phone. Sucks that it does not have flash. I dont need it to make pictures i just need it for torch. And wht do these dumb peopele at microsoft think that they come out with new OS phone and all go rushing in ? it's been 2-3 years of windows phone and now they close it cause it failed in some point ? It has not grown to a point to fail they just wont give it a chance cause they need money fast and now. I need to buy old phone cause new one's dont have camera button and im aiming at lumia 830.
What are these apps that everyone need on there phone ? I use my phone for answering calls and making calls and sometimes if im bored i surf the interweb and thats about it. Ok i play yatzy to but so far i have not needed any app. I didnt even need any apps on my old Android samsung or on my nexus 7 2013 tablet. Yeah the 4" screen i have is a bit to small to get work done on it when needed but it's still not slow for me or anything. And it has support for every new update that android phones dont get. IOS phones are weist of money and cost to much with outdated hardware from stone age of the touchscreen phone area. And everything is pay to have on apple products or all stuf you want to get you need to have specifically for apple product and pay extra for just the apple logo. And dont talk about reliability they are mass products like rest of the phones so it cant be more quality for them then other manufactors give.
bedong, 09 Jul 2015Is there android or iOS replacement? Not upto pureview level but still android flagships like G4, Note 4 with OIS awill be able to take some decent shots...the only thing Lumia offer is Pureview( 40 mp one) rest things are much better in Android.
This means WP and Lumia series was a failure. This is the one way to admit it.
I told CEO many times that the major problem with windows phone is the apps!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
For Android/iOS users can easily change to iOS/Android and vice versa.
The problem there are many apps are not available in windows! This make Android/iOS users very hard to switch to windows phone.
Do you get it mr, Satya?

I want microsoft to work on their own mobile phone processor, I hope microsoft get amd
Haplok, 09 Jul 2015Very true.
Also, where would a 1020 successor fit?Flagship of course.
They need to double the RAM, storage space with microSD and of course processor to handle the big images and vids. OIS, and better night sensor. That would make it fit to be the 1030
droopy, 09 Jul 2015Lumia, a ZERO SALES phone, obsolete. Good decision to discontinue that brand.How could you say that?? Windows phone sales is growing in Europe countries, it grows slowly, but steady
I m fed up with windows phone, i wouod buy wp again only if they release proper successor to Lumia 1020
Doug, 09 Jul 2015Having flagship and business categories sounds redundant.Very true.
Also, where would a 1020 successor fit?
Get the apps and people will buy, that the only problem with Windows phones, the OS is good but the lack of apps that is killing them.
Windows 10 might be the shining beacon of light they much needed, it be alot more open than what Windows 8.1 currently is, plus with advent of both Android & iOS been easily ported over to Windows 10 the apps market might start to fill up with decent apps instead of half arsed crap.
Only time will tell.
elzorro, 09 Jul 2015Android lollipop lags and has meny errors. windows 10 will allow customer to download apps fro... moreI fully concur- droid lags. Period. In a couple of years MS and (maybe) BB will be the phones/OS on the rise. MS can pour it on at anytime, cuz they have the cash.
Tho never an Apple user, their product will surpass all of droid combined. Their phones just work. No endless configuration/tweaking hours wasted...
