The Microsoft Windows Phone and the Metro UI was unbridled soul and I will forever be mad that Microsoft abandoned it.

The Microsoft Windows Phone and the Metro UI was unbridled soul and I will forever be mad that Microsoft abandoned it. They were sitting on gold and squandered it.

The Windows Phone and Zune truly could have competed against Apple's UI and design philosophy, but were both killed.

Who was responsible IQfy? What idiot exec made the call?

      People did buy them. Microsoft just didn't want to go through the hardship of building the base from the ground up, like Apple and Android did. They just imagined it'd be an immediate success and take 70% of the market overnight.

      Soulfilled phone man. I still use my Lumia 950 from time to time.

    They had tons of great ideas, then one day everything vanished, around the same time poos took over, weirdly enough.

      Microsoft does not innovate. They steal. Look at the origin of Windows NT for an example of theft.

    Previous Winphone owner here. While Windows Phone was still current, Microsoft were releasing apps for Android before Windows Phone. Additionally, they promised Win10 upgrade for lots of phones that shipped with Win8, but then walked back on that promise, angering customers.
    But I agree, the UI was wonderful and I still miss it.

      They did the same thing with Win mobile 6.x to win phone 7, and with win phone 7 to 8. Only absolute morons bought win phone 7 and up, people coming from win mobile 6 mostly went to android.

    What is this revisionist cope?
    They abandoned both because the exact opposite was true. It was not squandered gold, it was squandered billions on products nobody wanted.

      Not revisionist at all. People did buy them. People did want them. The thing that mostly hurt the Windows Phone was no apps. Zune was killed via stupidity and no large storage sizes and a finicky store.

        It fricking sucked compared to Win mobile 6.1.

        It had no apps because MS said "frick you" to all existing windows mobile applications.

    It was a great product. The problem is Microsoft keeps trying to trap developers into their ecosystem and this time developers were too wise to fall for Microsoft's bait and switch and decided not to develop any apps for it. Thank god they let it die.

    I used to see Jr. High School students at the Sammamish Starbucks, they all had Nokia phones. Their parents dumped those phones on the kids while they got an iPhone.

    Nadella and his "hit restart" bullshit. It was his idea to turn every iPhone and Android into quasi-Microsoft phones.

    lack of proper social apps like Snapchat and Instagram killed windows phone.
    there were unofficial versions for each, but snapchat would ban anyone who used the windows phone version.

    that's really it. it could have been the perfect phone, but not having snapchat killed all appeal for normies.

      It is sad, but this is the real reason Windows Phone died.
      The founder of snapchat had / has a vendetta against MS because his gf left for a MS software engineer. Seriously.

    I bought a ruindows phone and sold it in two months, it was on par with chinese android phones where the phone overheated to death, the OS was piss poor and unstable, it lagged like hell on every fricking animation and the battery didn't even last a full fricking day of use.
    I bought the top of the line lumia at the time and with an sd800, then when I sold it I bought an xperia z3 compact and the experience was like night and day.
