If Windows 10 for mobile had all the apps/games I need, I would definitely choose it over Android. Also if the major bugs are fixed.

No Android Auto, No Android Wear, No Android TV
Why Windows phone ? I had it !?
WP is not compatible! Android is Better!

Honest question, why? You need to focus on just building two awesome flagship Androids that will sell and increase your bottom line. Create a great phone for the whole world not just some markets.

I Think WP is dead! No one makes Money on WP. 150 different phones in 4-5 years and no one sells!

maybe they want to taste dead or something, to encourage themself to work harder when creating their next android flagship..
all phone maker should wait surface phone to set bar for W10M, and other phone maker should follow
but if they make 12inch Mi Pad win10, it will be great :D

"Chinese firm has dropped a few Windows-running tablets in its recent past," quoted from the article and its absolutely wrong. They have released only one tablet that's running Windows, the Mi Pad 2 which went into sale for the first time on 26th Jan. However, this handset could really be a boon to the Windows Mobile System.

The phone is irrelevant. It's the ecosystem that matters. Nobody's going to GAF about the hardware of the phone if you can't get the popular games on it, your bank doesn't offer a WP app, The Fire Phone was a complete disaster, but I'd rather have one than a Windows Phone. Hell, I'd rather have an iPOSphone than either of those, because at least I'd know the apps I need would represented, nevermind my other feelings about Apple and iOS.

If that is true..Definitely its heading to India..In India u ll get all the banking apps and people do purchase windows phone. It will be an affordable WP flagship for Indians.

The ecosystem is huge in buying decisions. That said...in the past I said I would pick Win Mo over iPhone because of choice of hardware....but the ecosystem is a good point.
I've used an iPhone before and yea....apps really do play a big part with these phones.

May be its the reason MS is not going to release a mid ranger this year!

Windows 10 Mobile IS NOT Windows 10 for x86.
As such, all of the applications and appeal aren't there.
What is worse, many apps aren't up to date or are in a very raw shape.
Take this example:https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/store/apps/facebook/9wzdncr
