    Do you guys agree? I think many have waited for the next WP flagship. I somewhat disagree because I am waiting for the rumored Surface Phone. If that fails to impress me, I give MS 2-3 yrs and I'm finally out.

    Microsoft will have to approach W10m Differently than it has in the past. They have to communicate a different value proposition than they have In the past ,The message is critically important, as is the marketing , like the surface pro 3, it has to provide a different sent of values. If they can do this, the platform and phone has a chance.

    Continuum is a good selling point but it shouldn't end there.

    Yes, it's pretty vague.. most probably deliberately as it looks like the author is hedging his bets.

    It'll take much more than a device, in simple terms they need to ramp up their advancements otherwise they'll always be on the lower rung or worse. Can't say I've seen much in the way of a "popularity" improvememt towards WP since 2012 and 100% certain I've not seen another in the wild since then either.

    PocketNOW?? smh Those charlatan at that website are the most hateful anti Microsoft hookers on the net. They used to be all about Windows Phone up until google cut them a check. I don't know if anyone remembered the video Pocketnow published on Youtube recently about Windows Phone TP they were forced to take down, it was so hateful, it was pure hate.

    I never understood what's the deal whenever someone says stuff like dead or last chance or whatever. Windows 10 mobile is just getting started. The worse that can happen is restructuring to reduce investments but Microsoft will continue to push with Windows on mobile for as long as they can. Also, restructuring means that since there is a single unified Devices and Operating Systems Group now, all its financials will be seen as such and not as an individual department bringing in the losses. A tactical move to fend off uneasy board members and investors. As long as this group keeps on producing profits overall through whatever, either XBox or Surface line or Windows, they will have a cover to work on loss making stuff like Windows 10 mobile or lumias or whatever.
    About penetrating the market, persistence is the key. They did it with XBox line and recently with Surface line and the way they are going with this universal windows under Nadella, they can certainly do it with Windows phones as well. A sound product always trumps the public perception or market trends. And although, I myself don't consider W10 mobile to be a sound product, yet, I honestly believe we are getting there.

    I've seen most of Pocketnow videos and I can't say I spotted any of what you talked about, they gave it more than a chance but it failed, look at me a hardcore Lumia fan that switched a year ago because it couldn't take it anymore...
    until WM10 is out Microsoft deserves all the negative publicity it's OS deserves.

    Two things here: 1.You cant speak to the issue I'm referring to if you did not see it. 2. Still holding a grudge? You switched platforms right? Are you here to defend the Pocketnow story or what?.

    Last chance?

    How many times has that been said by internet hacks over the least few years? Countless.

    It's not over until Microsoft days is over. They have no delusions it the flagships turning market share around, they've basically said these flagships week be for enthusiasts.

    1- You're claiming that it's an attitude that Pocketnow is following but I didn't notice it, hence it maybe that you're exaggerating.
    2- I switched platforms but this site is still called Windows Central and NOT mobile central, I use OneDrive on my Galaxy S6 along with Outlook mail, I own an Xbox One and a Windows machine, I have every right to be here but even if all the above wasn't true, Are you going to censor anyone who doesn't agree with you or something? :)

    Censor? No, not at all. Not my objective anyway. I'm pretty much used to comments like yours on Windows Central. You attempted to bear witness to my comment and as it turns out, you don't even know the video. A very atypical response but that was the thrust of my comment to you. The rest was absolution

    Expensive does not immediately equate to accuracy. It's just a more refined praying. A hypothetical prayer.

    If they can't get the same apps most user have in iOS and Anrdiod, Yes they are dead. I have been a windows phone user since the first Lumia 900, but always got back to either Android or iOS based on the lack of APPS. I'm currently using an iOS device, wanted to switch to WP the other day, but after a quick search of the apps I'm currently using, I decided not too. WP still missing all Google stuff (Youtube, Photos, Gmail), Uber app is crap, Snapchat, Facebook just like in iOS and Android the WP version is just not the same.

    No but I think Microsoft should only provide the OS, and have a nexus type of device (aka Lumia) to show what the platform is capable of. Microsoft should only release 1 high end, 1 mid, 1 entry level... Only to raise the level of Windows 10 Mobile

    Do you mean that video of that new Asian dude who reviewed the preview software? That video? because every point he mentioned seemed solid, I maybe disagreed with a point here or there but I also disagree when someone says "ah um no one needs multitasking anyways"

    I don't understand that mentality that great reviews should be a given for any product. Has Microsoft managed to impress any reviewer in the past three years?

    * thick phones, big bezel
    * one to two years behind spec wise
    * camera phones that has magnetic OIS that shook even when the phone was steadied which created worst shots instead of blur free shots
    * terrible low rangers which they tried to market as flagships! and asked for way too much for it too
    * premium prices for phones that had terrible touchscreen issues and very flimsy plastic (I have two Lumia 1520s each had a problem with either the buttons or the Sdcard tray!)
    * not to mention the **** Microsoft pulled off when it provided the Lumia 1020 with the worst processor ever (because it was too slow to support better processors and didn't allow an image processing chipset either) and then they managed to say Oops this is a phone with terrible hardware we won't be updating it with all the cool features!

    All what Microsoft did in it's mobile business is hype few features and then sell at premium and later abandon ship.
    wasn't it enough that the Lumia 830 was launched without all the camera features the announcement event hyped! Even funnier that the head of imaging didn't even know that this actually happened!

    I know Nokia introduced lots of innovation through Windows Phone, but after all people were always excited for Nokia's firmwar.
    Amber,Black,Cyan and Denim were the things we waited for and not the artificial advancements Microsoft pushed every now or then! (remember GDR3!)

    When Microsoft doesn't believe in it's products and still provide better experiences on competing platforms than that of which they own, I wouldn't get mad if any reviewer bashed the crap out of "Resume OS TM"
