I just bought a Lumia 640. It's my first time using a Windows Phone.
wrong with Windows Phone exactly?
I've had a wonderful experience with it so far. I have been able to find alternatives to all the apps I've used on Android and the interface is amazing.
Dead platform, MS CEO practically confirmed it's dead.
They have been subsidizing hardware costs the entire time to try and grab marketshare. If they tried to sell them without losing money marketshare would fall to 0%
MS CEO said they are trying to lower costs on their mobile front, not that it's dead. Their mobile front includes everything, even the tablets. There's still a lot of effort being funneled into the WP platform.
>windows store is terrible, for example searching for something general like music wouldn't get you a lot of music apps, basically searching for apps there is a nightmare
>windows store apps are lacking, which combined with the above makes it a huge problem
other than that, i really like it. i mean there are a few places where it shows that it's not mature yet but that's it, OS wise.
At uni we got to ask a m$ rep some questions after a presentation.
>"where do you see the future of windows phones"
Basically the guy noted their super lack of apps and piss poor acceptance, while noting they're going to die off they take off very soon.
Nothing is wrong with it...there just isn't anything interesting about it.its just one more boring ass slab of a smartphone. So if you've bought some Android or ios apps there's no compelling reason to switch really
Just more of the same as everything else.
