Windows phone, after selling 57% less than it did last year (which itself was a small number compared to sales of Android or Apple phones) is now pretty much dead, by any reasonable analysis.
TheVergeMicrosoft and Nokia have sold a total of 110 million Windows Phones compared to 4.5 billion iOS and Android phones in the same period. IDC recently reported that 400 million phones were sold in the recent quarter, meaning just 1.1 percent of them were Lumia Windows Phones. Microsoft does not have any compelling Lumia handsets, and the Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL were both disappointing flagship devices with unfinished Windows 10 Mobile software.
