I used to be a huge Nokia Fan that said when they adopted windows phone which was always low on spec and features compare to android so i choosed S3 over L920 i loved google services.
Somehow i became MS fan, i shifted from Gmail to Outlook,Gdrive to Onedrive (alias Skydrive), started using onenote and word, bought windows laptop, bought L1020 followed by L730,L930,L535,L640,L950XL with display dock..
i taught satya was very strong and will lead MS into new direction, his quote “cloud first,mobile first” made every MS fan happy we taught Windows mobile will start to grow, UWP apps, Continuum, Onecore, Nokia team etc looks promising.
Windows mobile was always slow to catch up with ios and android..at first they used to be low on specs and features so no android user wants to try plus no apps so no ios users wants to give it a try…
Finally came L950/XL with high end specs on par with opponents in ugliest design possible with unstable,unoptimized windows 10 mobile with high asking price including gimmick called continuum (yup i said gimmick instead of buying all this cumbersome keyboard,mouse,dock,hdmi cable,L950/XL one can get high end pc/Laptop).
Then MS started releasing Office apps, Garage apps, windows mobile core apps to android and ios...they are good sometimes great in quality many times not available on windows platform...those apps never made there way to windows inspite of all UWP, Porting ios app tools..so if MS doesnt want to make apps for their own platform why would any other unkown developer waste his time bulding app for windows or using those tools.
Many people are suffering with volte problems on L950/XL unbranded..i mean if a user buy iphone/android mobile unlocked or locked he can use volte on any carrier where if he buy L950/XL unlocked they dont support volte on carriers that said at&t L950 support volte.
L535 released with touch isuue (hardware) but MS released software patch.
Out of 100 more than 50 L930 facing microphone failure problems MS ignored..
In this week, i heard they are going to kill Lumia brand and going to depend on 3rd party OEM’s...there is rumour of so called surface mobile..MS fans fed up with all these events, yesterday, we came to know MS going to kill band i think i had enough of 3rd class treatment from my own provider.
MS Loves android and ios so do i, that said i’m not going to use any MS services on them so i’m shifting all my accounts back to gmail from outlook, i moved all my 9gb data from one drive to google drive and dropbox, i stopped renewal of office 365 started using google docs, i’m planning to use evernote instead of onenote, started using itunes instead of groove, love chrome from start, i will make sure 950xl is my last windows mobile dont care about 3rd party oems or surface enterprise mobile mostly my next will be Iphone or samsung.
If ballmer taught to cut loose surface team at initial failure there wont be surface brand, if he stopped at vista/win 8 failure there wont be win 7/win 10,if MS beloved company apple stopped making devices after their so many downs there wont be iphone..
Under satya leadership lot of job cuts, killing lumia and band,removing apps like radio,lumia refocus,lumia cinemagraph,blink,lumia selfie not working with nokia treasure tag, buying many apps merging them with ms services then releasing those merged apps on ios or android platform.
I never taught i will say these three words
> I MISS BALLMER
