IT Home News July 27 Many technical experts believe that Windows Phone is a huge failure, and some even believe that the death of Windows Phone is the biggest failure in Microsoft's history. Some people, including Terry Myerson, the former head of Windows and Windows Phone, expressed their views on the serious mistakes made by Windows Phone, so that Microsoft had to kill it.

Recently, a former Nokia engineer tried to come up with a new answer. He worked for Nokia before and after the acquisition of Nokia's mobile phone by Microsoft. Although the former Nokia employee believed that there were many setbacks that never let Windows Phone climb the ladder of success, it mainly pointed out four reasons, which are the key to Microsoft's smartphone failure.

The former Nokia Engineer said,

There are many well-known factors leading to the disappearance of Windows Phone, but none of them can make it disappear, but these factors are most prominent to me:

Underestimating Google: Apparently, Apple was very hot at that time. Microsoft knew that, but Google was a novice in the operating system business. They really didn't take it seriously enough. Android was rough at the time, but the real value was in Google's services. When Google deletes YouTube, Maps, Gmail, etc., it does make Windows Phone look cheap.

Bad Windows 8: before Windows 8, Windows Phone made a lot of people curious to try. After Windows 8, there was a bad impression of linking the two, and even if these teams were very independent, not doing well on Windows 8 did not reflect the Windows Phone experience. Even when it comes to Windows 10, yeah.

Microsoft's reputation: It was still terrible at the time, which meant that young people who hated Microsoft were assisting other platforms.

Loyalty: By 2014, people will be very satisfied with iOS or Android. Even though Windows Phone has some applications and other missing features, there is no completely convincing reason to replace them. Even now, the number of replacements between iOS and Android is fairly low.

He also put forward an interesting apocalypse. According to him, the coding of, Windows Phone is always better than that of Android.
