Anonymous, 31 Jul 2016Yeah JF69, you live in the real world where your data is owned by Google. Congrats. And you live in a fantasy world, have you looked around you lately, how many people have you seen in the wild use a WP phone, no developer in their worth his/her salt will waste their time and effort on this DEAD platform.
Had bought a 730 for wife, the last with the Nokia brand name !! Wonderful phone with a slick Software and with all the necessary apps in store. But that was more than a year ago.
In the past year or so, haven't seen any real progress in the Apps department in the Windows Phone Store, more so with India centric apps.
India is going thru a start-up wave but sadly, all new start-ups are launching only IOS & Android Apps & ignoring Windows Phone altogether. Even the apps launched by the Govt. of India under its Digital India initiative are skipping WP, even after the launch of Windows 10 & the uniformity of its apps across Windows devices (India is still Windows centric for its basic computing needs !!)
Secondly, even after a year of launch, Windows10 update hasn't been rolled out for phones running WP 8 & 8.1 !!
I was seriously considering Lumia 950 for myself but due to the aforesaid issues, am now FORCED to look at alternatives with Android or IOS !!
MS can't believe their luck at having sales reach the millions to begin with. What to say of declining sales?
People use to buy Lumia because of its build quality. There latest lumias are ugly plastics. Even Samsung old plastic models looks premium. With all the new beautiful smartphones why would someone buy those shit bricks
The Monkees, 30 Jul 2016It's a shame, as we need diversity. Not just Android and iOS :( In the next few years consumers will go through IOS and Android fatigue. There will be no platform to jump to if Win10P will be left to die. Technology fatigue is already staring to set in with IOS by the way just look at the declining sales
Anonymous, 30 Jul 2016no apps, no other launcher only bricks like tetris, no camera apps, nothin custumizable!!
???... moreI once had a nokia 635... Till this day was my favourite phone, but the lack of Apps or Updates (lets say whatsapp Calls) make me change to android (laggy as hell).
I loved de UI of WP, but thats a preference.
No need of that much hardware to run the sames apps than android, ie. Asphalt
Excelent design, for being an all plastic phone!!
And the Windows apps are great, but as I stated before, the lack of apps was too much for me. But for an everyday ´hone its a great choice, after all you can always need two phones(wink wink)
Cause MS doesn't Respond to the major complain of the users and thats how they fall

Anonymous, 31 Jul 2016Wake up from your deep sleepWP is dead, put a fork in it, Microsoft has, what developer worth his salt is developing for the dead WP platform, I live in the real world, not the fantasy world you are living in.
Just die windows mobile just die!!!! So you can focus on making a good desktop os with no crap mobile store integrated!!!

And again, you said you could use it for productivity with a PC, but no. If you have a PC you could just use that instead. Its 2016 now and there are many seamless ways of moving data around, without using your phone as a PC when one is right there. So again, useless gimmick.
Grey1213, 31 Jul 2016Lol. In an age where you can seamlessly move whatever data you want there is no reason for it ... moreWhat project and big screen you do not comprehend? It is something to have it on your phone and other thing to project everything in your phone on a big screen. For others to see. Fraud? Have i claimed i use it in this manner? I said it is a really good idea. And yes i used it for projecting online movies streight on tv. And works flowlesly. So it is not just for work, you can also have a mini gaming/movie and whatever console wherever you go. ;). And then again. Fraud? Get a life man. Just cause is not your copysung that made it, not that they have ever done something without copying, it does not mean is not good. It is quite a great ideea and i can see business people or companies taking advantage of this technology in the future.

And I'm willing to bet you don't depend on continuum for work at all, if you've even used it before. Fraud.
Grey1213, 31 Jul 2016I don't see how continuum is actually useful. Its not like there is a shortage of desktops wit... moreContinuum is not made to replace a computer, nor is made to find somewhere a monitor without a pc, on the contrary. It is very well recomandet to be in a place witha pc, cause you can use it's keyboard, mouse, internet and monitor. If you don't understand this technology, don't spread the clueless to others. Continuum is made so all your work in your smartphone can be projected on a bigger screen. A work, that you will always have with you. The ideea is verry good, especially for a business man, or pleople that often do presentations. No more laptops but a small device and two cables.;). Samsung cannot came with this ideas, cause android is not a productive system. Android is made for what is used. Games, movies and pictures.;)
