If W10M (if this is what you meant by win10) wasn't a bad fit, we wouldn't have users leaving it in droves. And it's not just lack of marketing, because if it was, existing users wouldn't be leaving. If it isn't a bad fit, it's at least a worse fit than the alternatives. I think your line above is more accurate if we modify it a bit and say that There are certainly people for whom win10 isn't a bad fit, and there aren't things missing, but for the average person, I don't think that's true.
I don't want to sound like a stuck record, but we have "been there and done that". By your own admission, you haven't. Your posts are the same thing we've been reading ad nauseam here for the last several years. There is all kinds of logic that would say you are correct, but unfortunately real life has shown otherwise.
We'll wait and see. What else can we do? :amaze:
Also not sure if this is true either. It's a common assumption, but does it match reality? IDK.
This may well be, at least in part, a conflation of personal experience, as I suggested, and also the conflation of marketshare with installed userbase.
comScore measured 2.7 percent userbase in the US, last year, when the marketshare was like now, well below 1 percent. There a lot of people on here with older 8.1 phones, and the newer Lumia's are over two years old, with no new phones available. The only phones still available are the 4s, which is afaik still US only, and the x3.
It's pretty hard to have a marketshare without substaintive new handsets. Certainly I am not saying some people haven't left. Certainly those who like new and shiny, will have probably moved on. But I think the number of people actually still using windows phones is frequently underestimated.
