As a WP8 user, I can sure think of a few issues, but many are fixed in WP8.1 .
What exactly is that hassle you are talking about?

Just an observation and I hope GSMArena.com folk and others don't take it the wrong way.
Why is the unreleased iPhone 6 featured under the latest phones when it hasn't been released?
And secondly why, when placing the Windows Phone logo on graphics (see the graphic used for this article), the old logo is used? The logo has been changed for months. Surely the correct logo should be used not just for Windows Phones but for all devices.

The market is good for all 3 companies right now. I'd like to see WP8.1 eat some of Android's share in order to become more competitive in terms of Apps. It is a brilliant OS.
Anonymous, 27 May 2014People are waiting for WP8.1 devices too :)Windows Phone is an amazing OS. 8.1 will bring it in par with Android and certain updates after that will allow it to surpass it in features. Android will never be as smooth as WP!
People are ditching Android in France Spain, Japan and Australia. I didn't expect that...
Its amazing that the media have went with this and never looked back. Market share is a flawed concept when comparing Android to iOS to WP8.
If Apple put iOS on $5 alarm clocks tomorrow and tripled their market share, everyone would point this out, saying hey, those shouldn't count, but that is essentially what is happening on the low end of the Android smartphone market, which is driving sales.
Also, after 7 years, the total lack of interest from Apple in producing a cheap iPhone should, addded with ever increasing sales, should prevent the "Apple is doomed camp" but nope, that's going on as well.
Whatever makes people happy I guess.
Wow! Not really much to say.
Men lie, women lie...numbers don't.
All hail Android!

chee bc, 27 May 2014apps r not free, thats what the consumer cares of, not the OS itself free or not.Windows Phone store has free apps too. I don't that matters much. What matters is OEM support. Android has biggest OEM support right now. Windows Phone is getting that from the OEM since they announced WP going free not long ago. Just look at PC and Linux. Linux has no support from OEMs. So it will always stay at low marketshare.
