Only shows how irrelevant WP has become. It could've been a good OS, especially when most people run Windows on their PCs, but it never got a much desired support from MS. I bet they are wondering right now, if there is any reason to release more Windows Phones. At this moment I don't think they can make any profit from this brand.
As a current Cricket subscriber, I'm able to get the 650 at the sale price without any problem. The store page says simply "$49.99 with activation," as opposed to "$49.99 with activation if you bring your number" that some of their other deals have stipulated.

I adore Lumia phones for sure. Android app is just common. Fake phones with this app are very common as well. Mwaaah! I love mu Lumia.
divis200, 08 Aug 2016Windows phone os is much more superior to android. From app optimization to ram management. Do... moreNot really.i have lumia 520 btw.apps are lag and load slowly like whatsapp, sometime it FC and unresponsive and it hang got to pullout the battery.
No good maps app because here map is gone.u cant find yahoo messenger the official apps. 3rd party apps with ads doesn't have a good layout and the place their choose to implement it just not right and annoying.
Live tiles didn't work on every apps kinda useless feature because nobody using it potential.
Keyboard sometimes it responsive sometimes it freeze for a while i could blame on the small ram or the hardcore fans who ignoring this facts.
Limitations are everywhere it almost like using beta OS like firefox OS and its been a decase Microsoft have been testing on this OS.
No wonder nobody want to buy it and nobody will spend their times to make apps for it. It just not a good OS. Even the head of wp using an iphone for his daily driver joe balfiore wink2.
Its not about the late player nor android or ios are too strong. Microsoft just miss the point for their OS that's all. They want it sell well but want it using their own rules not a customer minded OS but microsoft want OS. That's when it fell.
We dont want rectangular tiles, no you have to and you must enjoy it.
We want YouTube player, oh sorry we hate google so enjoy our phones without it.
We want google service apps, oh no you don't i told you that they are evil.
That kind of attitude that bring them down. And joe have been working for this OS for a decade and still not much improved that it archive. Is there nobody else in the Microsoft that have better vision or idea to swith for him?
Choose to battle in low end also a bad idea too as you can aspect a cheap car to perform like a ferrari it is just not posible no matter how you want to optimize it. Hardware have the limitations and it is the law of physics. Some can be fool to think that it is good but you can't fool everyone and windowsphone sell figures shown it all.
Bad strategies, bad head of department, bad implementation, bad apps repository, and no willingness to listen what actually the customers want. You just can't make it works it is finished for wp future

I found the relevant applications from the store to play media files etc. Fine. Now I can't set a default application to open a particular file type. It sucks. Has it got anything to do with developers? It is out and out an OS limitation. It really SUCKS!

Get it through your tiny mind that WP has completely and utterly failed, despite the best efforts of nokia and microsoft to make it relevant.

W10M lag far eorse than Android on identical hardware, and W10M i more locked up than iOS! W10M do not even have one acceptable browser and none with an ad blocker, Edge is unusably slow...! The problem with W10M is W10M, not the low number of apps! App developers abandon the sinking ship W10M!
so jealous of US right now.
why great cheap deal always in US, yet in my Country this Lumia 650 cost almost the same with Lumia 950.
I just currently lost my Lumia 640xl and wanting to buy 650, but after looking the retail price in here it cost around $400-$500
so f*cked up, it's like the retailer doesn't care anymore with Windows Phone.

It's always cheap in the US compared to Europe, as this example again proves it. It should sell here for less than 50 euro, then no single droid can compete against it. But I haven't seen any carrier sell this phone for 50 euro prepaid. Heck even the Lumia 550 doesn't go that cheap here.
