How old is the 950? Cant grow if you abandon your platform
Continuum ft great SurfacePhone is last hope! So Mr.Nedella hurry up.... Common man do something if you're really serious to saving wp (windows mobile)
sohail shafayat, 18 Jul 2017Who cares about the market share percentage of Windows Phone! Windows Phone is dead. Microsoft... moreThat's what we have been hearing for the last 10 years + and all of we have actually seen is MS sinking further and further in to the mire.
Well that's no surprise. Haven't heard of anything Windows phone related in a long time. It's like Microsoft forgot about it and other manufacturers like LG, HTC and Samsung haven't made any new Windows phones either (at least not that I've heard). WP was already a shaky market. If they don't try innovating and pushing their phones out what do they expect?
Who cares about the market share percentage of Windows Phone! Windows Phone is dead. Microsoft is working on Windows Mobile 10/Surface Mobile and Microsoft will back in the market with a blast.
Boebus666, 18 Jul 2017Is it just me that can't bring myself to trust brands like Oneplus, Vivo, ZTE, Oppo, Meizu etc etcNah, same here. The only one is Xiaomi because they are dirt cheap
That Indian guy at Microsoft is killing Microsoft. Steve Ballmer spent tens of billions getting Windows Mobile to 8~10% market share and he just killed it when he become CEO. It is only a matter of time before Apple and Google's own Office suite and cloud service take out Microsoft
Despite these factoids, I still like Win Phone 10 OS.
Tom....., 18 Jul 2017I'm glad that Sony never face this kind of fate and will never be faced. Sony is a brand, not OS. Android's not going anywhere anytime soon, yes.

As soon as I search for something on Google I see an ad related to the search.
Aadrian, 18 Jul 2017That's logical, Microsoft doesn't invest in Windows 10 mobile at the moment and it's their int... moreMicrosoft is winning the game without a mobile OS. They have services and apps for all the top platforms.
It's now an almost extinct species
Person next to me is using windows powered mobile
And after they pissed us of with the spyware-happy new windows, they are doomed either way, both desktop and mobile platforms will fail. Well unless they change their minds and come up with something we actually approve. Trying to force people to use windows 10 without actually liking it won't get them very far.
Effectively Satya Nadella has just joined
Stephen Elop and John Chen as another mobile phone platform killer CEO.
Now I hope no more killing fields of this kind will happen again in the future (there is nothing left to kill) until the smartphone itself becomes obsolete (like some fax machine or a CRT TV set).
I own the Nokia Lumia 1520 (currently bricked by firmware while upgrading to Windows 10 Mobile), the Microsoft Lumia 950 XL and HP Elite x3.
Despite many frustrations, NO REGRETS. Thanks for the memories. Just holding that HP device and listening to music directly from its speaker is worth it for my feel good factor.
ATM Microsoft isn't even producing phones nor focusing on mobile. They announced that Redstone 3 will be all about mobile devices though, so I expect a surface to launch around that time. A Lumia 950 XL user here, I have no complaints thus far.
Windows phone sucks completely and all those 0.1 % who are using it also sucks , Android and iOS are the best and advanced operating system in the entire world right now , windows phone and it's operating system should shut down by now ... Android and iOS are the best when it comes to multitasking , user interface , customization and as your daily driver device ...
Anonymous, 18 Jul 2017Its because worldwide market never trust Windows mobile OS. Windows mobile has hybrid ability ... moreThe main reason for WP's demise has mostly been the lack off app. support. It really doesn't matter how good the OS and\or hardware are if the apps. aren't there to back it up.
Thats because Satya Nadela have a different vision for mobile. Far different from Steve ballamer. He wants to create a different catagoery of phones. Look at the surface devices now. Everybody's making 2 in 1.
