DealBreaker, 22 Apr 2016I begin to think that people who are buying Windows Phones are just not capable of using a and... moreI repair, config and develop for both IOS and android but my main phone is a Lumia 950 XL.
Windows mobile was always going to fail, will never be able to compete with Android, it's just too far behind. Nokia should have moved to Android when they had the chance rather than choosing a failed OS like Windows, they must be regretting it as well.
Kuro Tsu, 22 Apr 2016just how much ms paying you?He's not getting paid by MS ...he just smokes too much weed!
I begin to think that people who are buying Windows Phones are just not capable of using a android or a IOS phone at full potential.They praise the windows phones because they are simple phones that they can use,put a android in their hands and they will be lost in it.How else can you say that a windows phone offers more then IOS or android,I had windows phones like lumia 910,lumia 735,lumia 640 they were nice when talking about hardware design,camera,call quality ...but when it came to UI,OS and applications they were just like feature phones to me!
mario82, 22 Apr 2016elegant, snappy, logical ? thanks for the laugh.... :) 640XL was the worst phone I ever bought... moreStill faster than any Android phone with the same specs. (and even faster than most higher-spec-ed Android phones)
When they just have a finger-ful of upcoming devices left to release this year and if they are ever planning or going to release new models next year, till then why don't they begin to concentrate and spend maximizing their time on developing or bringing in new apps for their ecosystem for every idle moment they have for the rest of the year instead of idly waiting for fiscal reports to see if they've improved or underperformed?
Sikorsky, 22 Apr 2016Actually, Win 10 for phones is elegant, snappy, logical, secure OS and doesn't need PC hardwar... moreelegant, snappy, logical ? thanks for the laugh.... :) 640XL was the worst phone I ever bought, it crashes and is dead slow for even the most basic tasks , even an os update can take hours ! And I wont even start to mention the abysmal app store....
After all the problems with my sueface peo 4, a 1000 euro tablet i will not buy anytime soon harware from microsft
Muthu, 22 Apr 2016Dude, fanboys exist everywhere. Every fanboy supports his choice of OS/OEM whole-heartedly. No... moreActually I'm not even a Windows fanboy. I'd ditch my Windows phone in an instant if something that works better came along.
I am driven by performance, reliability, productivity and security. I don't care which OS provides those, as long as I get them. It just happens to be the case that Windows phones usually offer all of those (not in a perfect way of course) while other operating systems don't.
And this is not just an opinion; it's the truth. Truth because facts back it up.
Well, everyone give Mr. Elop a round of applause. Everyone knew he was just in it for himself and that's why he took the money and bolted. Microsoft + Lumia was never going to be a winner.
MS living in fools paradise.............if they think they can sale mobiles without improving their app store
SDKforLumia, 22 Apr 2016A very well deserved failure indeed.well said
Kuro Tsu, 22 Apr 2016just how much ms paying you?Dude, fanboys exist everywhere. Every fanboy supports his choice of OS/OEM whole-heartedly. Not everyone of them gets paid. If anything, this WAS the domain of Sammy. No real proof came out of other OEMs.
There is no need to ask how much you are paid to each and every fanboys of different OS/OEM. Accusing someone without proof is just not good.
Know y? Because m$ never care of their mobile business! This is y their previous mobile line up, kin was failed! And also they r just simple wants nokia phone business to die!
when you promised us that all those apps were coming to the os we bought the phones and then found out it was a lie or that it was gonna take 25 years and sold our lumias never to come back until you match IOS and android app to app
Ive bought lumia 950, the battery, camera and applications way less than my previous phone
