    I was a great fan of Windows mobile phone but somewhere I have lost the interest and planning to buy apple phone because I don't see any future of Windows mobile phone.
    Their app store doesn't have enough apps.
    Apps which are currently available, doesn't not compete with Android or iOs platform. Windows store apps are outdated.
    Rumours about Surface phone are still rumours and I don't see any future about Windows mobile.
    I am still using windows phone and going to give up.
    I am highly thinking for iphone7/8 and will take decision after 12 Sept 2017.is Microsoft going to jump back to phone business or have lost the interest.

    I am after a week with OnePlus 5 after 5 years with WP, 920,1520,950 xl and 550.
    I'm very happy and satisfied. I installed all Microsoft apps and services did not even import my contacts to Google.

    I think that Microsoft will concentrate on mobile services primarily like they are doing now. As for an actual mobile device, I see it as a side project at the most.

    They now dont even bother to develop apps for their own OS, so yes that tells they are not interested anymore.

    They are gonna continue their efforts for mobile devices, but they entered the mobile market a bit late. This is costing them and us alot. Microsoft has a future in mobile devices, i guess it's gonna take some time. Enjoy using the other platforms of your choice with sadly faced, and wait for the next generation devices to be launched by Microsoft, and grab them whole heartedly. I am not gonna give up my Lumia device!!!!!

    I'd like to see some proof of this. They are no longer making smartphones and all they talk about is "a mobile device that's not really a phone but can make calls". I don't think that's continuing their efforts in what most people consider and want in a smartphone.

    Agree with TgeekB. Annnnnnnd, I hate to be that guy, but if they want to take on the consumer market with this new, non-phone mobile device, they're gonna have to figure out a way to get developers on board. In today's market, apps are king.

    If I must be very honest, buy the iPhone 8. The way Microsoft has been not giving the slightest regards about future devices is beyond pathetic. New York City cops stopped using Windows Phones last month, and before Microsoft announces plans to make new devices, they just sit, eat cheese and do nothing. Sad. ๐Ÿ˜’

    I don't think MSFT entered the market late. In fact they were leading the curve, if anything. I remember using a windows 3.1 tablet way way back, and windows mobile. The main problem, i always felt, has to do with usability by non computer geeks. It is not there, even today with windows 10. I think winrt and win mobile 7 were the way to make inroad in that market segment. MSFT should have put non teckies in charge, and should have been more stubborn with these platforms. The current win10 single OS idea is wonderful, but the execution much less so.

    Windows on mobile is dead. A mobile Windows experience, if it ever sees the light of day, will not be in smartphone format. It'll likely be in tablet and computer stick format maybe.

    But moving to iOS is a terrible mistake as well. iOS has to be the worst, most incapable OS on Earth. Unless, of course, you enjoyed the Windows Phone 7 experience. If you didn't and you preferred WP8 or WP10, move to Android.

    Why would they make a mobile OS, when they already have a ubiquitous OS that they can just port to 6-inch devices?

    Windows computers can already do everything a smartphone can, and more. The only reason that smartphones exist is because current Windows computers can't elegantly fit in your pocket.

    I used to be that guy. "Oh iOS is terrible ". It's a great experience and something Microsoft could use and learn from. Maybe it's just me. I still love Windows mobile but it's dead.

    For most consumers, what matters is it works out of the box without constant reboots, resets, hard resets...
    Will be moving to ios next year after my current stink with android.

    Agree. While I'm still watching and interested in what MS might do, I've moved full bore to Apple and life has become much easier and efficient. People can hate all they want, but that doesn't make it terrible.

    I think Microsoft needs to focus on two areas strongly. App consistency and design aesthetics. I'm starting to feel like the flat dark design is a rather emotional drain. Same with the light version. It just doesn't pop

    For all intent and purposes Windows Mobile is done going by my standards.

    And for those looking to switch, pick your poison Android or IOS. You won't go wrong with either if you give it a far chance.

    Same here. I disliked the Iphone especially until they put in a lower case able keyboard. Still lame with the icons but at least there's force touch and a very stable experience.

    Only wish it had Miracast support and a driving mode. (I despise Apple Car Play.)

    For the most part the MS apps on Ios are better than on WM10. Notable exception being Groove.

    Haters don't pay your bills. Why bother with them in the first place?

    Move on and get some sanity back. Like many of us are doing you can keep up with what's happening (or not happening) with Windows phones on WC and easily jump back aboard later on if Microsoft ever make another go of it.

    Yup. You have to use what works best for you. Heck, I think all the people paying over $1000 for the new iPhone X are nuts, but it's their money. All this back and forth stuff about smartphone wars is just fun and entertaining. I don't take it seriously.

    I can't believe the fabled Surface Phone has been right under our noses all this time. Complete with magnetic detachable keyboard.

    This was one heavy SOB as I remember.
