I recently put my sim card into the Redmi Note 3, the mid range, budget friendly smartphone from Chinese manufacturers Xiaomi, and have been enjoying the Android experience. I am still a Lumia/Windows 10 Mobile fan, and the plan is to put the sim back into my Lumia 830 which is running an Insider Preview build of Windows 10 Mobile (version 10586.36 in the video, before the recent 10586.63 update which does speed things up a bit). So thought I’d do a speed comparison video of the two devices. It is worth noting that the Redmi Note is running an on an Octacore CPU compared to the 830’s quadcore, and was only released back in November 2015, while the Lumia goes back to September 2014. So I appreciate the Lumia 830 has an uphill task to beat the Android Lollipop device. Never the less, speed comparisons are fun, so here it is:

There has been a launch date set for the end of this month for Window 10 on computer but there has been no word as of yet when the mobile version is coming.  But now according to slides from a Microsoft spokesperson the OS should come in October, or “possibly as early as September”

1_windows_10_mobile_launch_story

Sadly this doesn’t mean you will be getting this on you device in September or even October.  This information was suppose to be for the carriers.  This means if your carrier slow on testing new updates you may not see Windows 10 this year on your mobile device.

While Windows Mobile is taking off in emerging markets here in the states it’s a different story.    Window Mobile lost a million users in the past year.  While that number sounds big it’s actually HUGE.  Since the number only started at around 6.6 million a drop of 1 million users is 15% of users.

Why would this be?  How could the OS do so well in other countries yet so freaking poor here in the states?  One word flagship.  That’s right Microsoft bought out Nokia and than didn’t produce a flagship device since then.  The last Windows Mobile flagship device was in 2013!!  Yup the 1520 is that old.

In an age where you can upgrade your phone every six months to a year if you are not cranking out a flagship device with new features every eight months to year YOU WILL sink.  I know Microsoft is waiting for Windows 10 to come out later this year however they are paying dearly for the wait.  They have missed two or three upgrade cycles for most consumers and they have moved on.  Think about how many flagship Android devices have come out since than.

When you are the underdog OS and you worked sooo hard to get users why throw away 15% of your user base just to have a new OS on your flagship?  We all know that all Windows Phone 8 devices will get the upgrade so what’s the excuse Microsoft?  You didn’t give the mobile community anything to get excited about in the past 18 months and now you are hemorrhaging users.  As a Windows Mobile user I beg you to release whatever flagship you have now and stop the bleeding.
