Windows Phone started off life as a promising alternative to Android and iOS five years ago. Microsoft positioned its range of Windows Phone 7 handsets as the true third mobile ecosystem, but it’s time to admit it has failed.
It’s a shame to see, really. I was (at one point) really interested in the Lumia 950/950 XL before settling on my current Android phone.
In a world where Google releases new Nexus devices every year to great fanfare from Android die-hards but little recognition otherwise, Windows phone (in some form) could continue to exist.
