    They probably don't want to add it yet. I mean, this is Apple they do things gradually.

    ios is an older OS, ios 8 is a minor update despite them calling it a major update
    wp is newer,wp8.1 is a major update in the true sense of it
    WP8.1 still has less features than iOS 8 regardless of whether you call it a major update or minor. Windows Phone is not that new, that needs to stop. Windows phone has been on the market for almost 4 years now.

    Samsung demand isn't reducing. But worldwide they are still the biggest electronics manufacturer and in real life (not on paper) their popularity or money flow is not going anywhere anytime soon.

    Yes I don't see motos in Chennai atleast there are all Samsung galaxies.

    Lightning cable > microusb cable, by design only, I love how in the dark I don't have to worry about plugging in my phone wrong.

    Feature wise I find iOS has many more useful features than windows phone, android is on par for the most part, I love how my iPhone works great with the Microsoft and Apple ecosystems. I have owned a windows phone from
    Oct 2010 until now, and I love my Lumia 920, but my issue with windows phone has nothing to do with the OS, and everything to do with apps, (missing, quality) sometimes third party apps cover for missing apps (metrotube, instance... Etc) there are some feature I like with iOS and Apple ecosystem like airplay and airdrop.

    The feature I am most looking forward to is being able to make a call from my Mac. I am not sure how useful this is going to be until i can try it. I was more impressed with the next version of MAC OSX than iOS8.

    I don't by this excuse anymore as well. In October it will be 5 years.

    No excuse, they just can't innovate fast enough, and this is funny because windows 8.1 pro is the best OS on any device (my opinion)

    It's not like iOS and Android are stagnant.I really don't think you'll see WP catch up until its merged with desktop Windows.

    Which will be after the fact Google merges ChromeOS and Android, and after Apple seamlessly integrates iOS and OS X. All this waiting for Microsoft and it's competitors are moving ahead. They need to do it this year instead of next. Next year it'll be all "That's cool, but iOS and Android can do the same thing, so why should I switch?". If they fix Xbox Live on WP and get some Google Services and apps, I will have no problem switching, but I am a minority other will see no compelling reason to switch at all.

    Yes, very sad with ios 8, why can't my Lumia 720 have it.

    Didn't the GNex get kicked out of Ubuntu for Android? I think the Nexus 7 (2013) and Nexus 4 are supported now because of the same specs. Either way, Ubuntu is going to have it's own devices late this year and next. Verizon (my carrier) is also signed on as a potential carrier for Ubuntu phones as well. I can't wait! Ubuntu is what WP should have been from the get go, a Desktop OS and Phone OS that is the same through and through.

    I've been a windows phone user for about the last month and an iPhone user since iPhone 3. Stop trolling bro bro.
    Being impress or unimpressed by all the ecosystems is a very personal and subjective matter. Just because you and others aren't interested in what iOS 8 offers, doesn't mean others aren't very excited for what's to come.

    Just because you don't like it doesn't mean iOS 8 is a worthless update that has nothing to offer.

    You mean Android? Because iOS 8 goes OTA around the same time as WP8.1 and even then iOS 8 still has more features.

    iOS 8 goes OTA this fall, likely Sept. if previous schedules are being maintained. WP8.1 starts rolling out in a few weeks.

    Yeah, they eventually kicked it out because apparently a 1.2ghz dual core and 1gb of RAM just can't run their supposedly lean OS all that well. And that's sad, because people are expecting entry level phones to work well with the OS. :\

    And something tells me next year Windows Phone might get a slide when they talk about how many people upgraded to iOS 8.

    I know I wasn't. Ubuntu is supposed to be your phone and computer and you need beefy specs for that. I hope they don't come out with phablets though, that will kill all my excitement.

    I still find it odd,folks don't understand just how big IOS 8 really is.

    I was talking to a of my non technical friends who use iPhones,and all seem pretty stoked about it.

    While many of the features may seem insignificant to WP and android power users,to many others they are a real big deal.

    Myself.....I am interested in what their flagship phone will be and if they will release the 5.5" with 128 gig memory. If they can be convinced to do this then I know I'll get one,and then wait for the next version of the 1020 replacement for the wife. I don't ever see a better camera than that one coming out anytime soon that she will need.

    I don't think it will here in the Midwest

    For me as I have told the folks at Apple, cloud integration is awesome if you have it available or a unlimited data plan with a good signal,but,old farts like myself,who likes to keep tons of bluray movies,extensive music collection,and complete maps with them the larger phones with larger memory is vital.

    I've had my fill of bad sdcards if late and am tired of the hassles of trying to get them replaced but I've grown so use to having the extra on phone storage I can't give it up.

    Streaming is nice,but nowhere as efficient as internal memory.

    Your quote pretty much sums up what people are saying. I for one wouldn't say iOS8 wasn't a good or solid update, but there was nothing that left people with their mouths open. Lets face it, the real interest is the devices that will be boxed with iOS8 and that's the iPhone6 with multiple screen sizes reflecting what other flagship screen sizes. That is what people are looking at. Who wants iOS8 by itself for Christmas...no one. Who wants an iPhone6 with it...now you have something.

    Then you have those iPhone fans wanting to upgrade but questioning the value of the phone for the price versus the line up of WP and Android phones. Not to mention to fully utilize iOS8 you want other Apple devices. A hard sell when there will be MSFT products at very price conscious devices.

    No doubt about this...which is 1 reason why I just got a new Imac for the desktop last month..while Yosemite will be a great upgrade I'll also have the option of using Boot camp and dual boot with it. Sort of the best of both worlds so to speak.I personally would rather be tied to Apple and Microsoft than the other alternatives. The less I have to rely on Google the happier I am.

    I've been trying to see how both platforms are working together right now and it's okay,hopefully it will be better.

    As too needing a new iPhone just to use IOS 8 it probably will be the best way to get the most out of it for sure,but my friends and coworkers who have the. 4s and 5's still are pretty happy to be able to get it for what it is going to bring to it. Most all aren't questioning the cost of the upgrades at least those who have the 4's aren't since they all want improvements and bigger screens and plan on upgrading to get them,and no they aren't considering Androids or WP alternatives....they like their iPhones.

    Seriously? I'm not an iPhone user, but you're completely out in left field with this statement. iPhone is the biggest seller here in the U.S., and with carrier subsidies, no one thinks about the cost of a phone. I also never see people buy or use Windows Phones, never at concerts or events, or clubs, or any place where there's a large gathering of people.
