Micromax will no doubt release excellent Windows phones at affordable prices. Go Micromax!

Looking forward to seeing some WP flavored handsets from Micromax.

Goodbye WP8.1! I can clearly see that Microsoft wants quantity rather than quality.

I was referring to MS partnering with Micromax. I wanted WP to be limited to quality OEMs like Samsung and Nokia, not s**tty companies like Micromax and Lava who don't give a f**k about their customers. I know because I am an Indian and I have seen how they treat their customers.

Well I get it... but you cannot say goodbye to an entire OS because of one partnership.
Also sh**ty is a relative term. You may not like Micromax, but your neighbor, friend, person across the globe may find a device they make appealing.
I, for one, am not thrilled with Smasung. But that's jut me.

Only an ignorant person can like Micromax. I wish all Indians could see past their devices (which are no doubt great for the price) and see how rotten their After Sales Services are.

Well I love Micromax, well if u think about after sales services, only Nokia is still holding good on that part, Even Samsung has S**ttyy service.
Apart from that Devices are the first thing to worry about. Most of the time you dont need to go for after sales service from any Vendor. This holds true for all the phones.
Samsung sell two different models of there galaxy devices, the one for GLOBAL crowd and one for 3g only crowd at the same price.
Search for " Indian galaxy s5 slower than global version " on google and have a read.. can not post URL due to a new account.
JUST TO ADD: Microsoft has a MINIMUM STANDARD requirement for a device to run the Windows Phone OS. This is the reason windows phone OS is so responsive. And I dont think Microsoft is going to change those requirements. hence the quality of the device will not dive as you think

"Microsoft has a MINIMUM STANDARD requirement for a device to run the Windows Phone OS."Minimum standard for After Sales service?? No they don't.
For God's sake stop whining about the S5 Octa. It hasn't even been released yet. Talk about it after it comes out. Don't talk with rumors as reference.
You clearly are a MMX fanboy. You completely missed the words "After Sales". I am speaking from experience. My family has like 10 Galaxy phones on total and not one of them has a major issue.

An independent Nokia would have continued to trump them all...SMH...

Nokia definatly would have, but the time would have been long and Windows Phone could not due to stiff market hold by Android.
