The problem is that Microsoft is struggling to find a way to be successful in the mobile market. I have to say that I am on my first day using a Windows Phone (a Lumia 950xl), but I am not sure if I can continue using it as my daily driver. The OS is good and integration with Windows 10 is really great, but the app situation is disappointing. Somehow I think Microsoft shouldn't give up on Windows Phone so early. While we all know that the future is based on Windows 10 cellular devices, Microsoft is taking a big risk here. By the time we get a Surface Phone Microsoft will be completely irrelevant im the mobile market.
What risk are they taking? They currently have 2% of the market or something like that. They are attempting to reinvent the market, which is what innovators do.
I'm sorry you are finding Windows mobile is not meeting your needs. The app situation is not new and well publicised. It certainly meets core functionality though and the 950xl is a nice phone. Maybe give it a little more time. Best of luck to you.
