    If this is even close to accurate paints a dismal future for MS in this market segment.
    Although they do have the resources and tenacity to keep pounding away.

    Wow, that's odd I was thinking of get a Windows phone W10 ... I'm using a Google Nexus 4 phone now with Android 5.1.1 Lollipop which I hate . I should of never updated from the original Jelly Bean and I hate how I always have to update this or that from Google .

    I'm sure it's true. However, one has to realize that the majority of people buy a Windows phone when it's first released, and Microsoft does not release phones very often.. so when they are in the market for a new phone, there hasn't historically been a good upgrade path, so they're more or less forced to go to a competitor.

    I bought a cheap Windows phone, and it is a bit slow. I plan to move to a pricier one soon, but sticking with Windows. I will ensure it has W10 and update before I upgrade. I don't care about the camera, I care about the speed.

    Currently on T-Mobile.

    Windows Phone is a dead platform. Sorry Microsoft. But you were too late to make a mobile OS that people actually want to use.

    Windows Mobile was not intuitive at all in 2007, and Windows Phone isn't useful at all in 2015. I think Microsoft should just drop the whole "Windows Phone" idea, as well as all the "metro app" idea in Windows 10. Nobody wants "universal apps", people just want to use their own software. Just quit it, MS.
