Google sucks because they just don't release it for WP right??? Lol....!!!!!! M$ service is good but stating google sucks without adequate facts to back up ur original statement is pure immature (no offence).

He's just angry because WP sold 7.4 million devices in Q2 and its market share is down to 2.5% now. Its bad enough that the app situation is bad on WP, but to decline in sales for the third quarter is a kick in the crotch. Android sold 255 million devices and iOS sold 35 million. If Googles services sucked then don't you think Googles services would be declining. But we all know which services suck here and its not Google's

What's the basis for this comment? Or is it pure hate cause windows phones cat get these items?

And they never will. Neither Google wants to or will. They will be relying on halfbaked fake wannabe apps.

Are you the new JakeLee/PapaSmurf?

Elaborate because I don't hate WP. I just hate how T-Mobile never caries a high end model.

No, I wasn't talking to you, I was talking to Locutus since he was being a JakeLee like-Guy just saying that Windows Phone is better.

As an individual trying out a Windows phone, I can tell you that it is the only reason I will not in fact be using my L1020phone, just to take great quality photos. Google voice is free. Skype costs a monthly fee. I could go on and on but let me just put it this way: if I buy an iPhone from the Apple store, I can use VoIP to make and receive calls without a plan. With this Windows phone, I'm stuck. I usually use Google apps every day! I use Dropbox every day.

Cool... Okay now please release these apps for WP. I know they've been disrespecting you with scroogled campaign or other ways but let alone those hate and show them(M$) that u don't mind these childish activities and show them ur maturity, respect the enemy/competitors & be friendly even if they don't ("keep your friends close but keep your enemies closer" Vito Corleone ) . I really miss many google apps since I've been using them for ages, i know many other who misses them too but for us please release them. More the people uses ur service increases the revenue.

Just don't use WP and you will have all those great Google services. Not to mention a much better ecosystem. Problem solved. Its not like there are a ton of WP users out there to begin with.

Oh god I remember when Google used to be a search site in the WINDOWS WORLD ..Without WINDOWS PC'S Google will never become this Google ..the mighty company ..

True but they both need each other. Without google those windows user couldn't have find anything on Internet. Google is arguable the best search engine(my opinion) as windows on pc is arguably the best desktop os(my opinion).

There were other search engines. Many of them weren't bad, but they work well enough.

True true. But there were other operating systems too and they weren't bad as either but Windows was the dominating one just like google were in search engines.

You said without Google [...]. I'm saying that they could have used other search engines if there was no Google.

No no u misunderstood what i meant was google helped for M$ success and M$ did the same for google too.. And there were alternatives for both like mac amd Linux versions for windows. yahoo and bing for google. Hope i made myself clear.

I didn't misunderstand your comment. Your post was clear enough.

So let's be honest here shall we. Microsoft is a greedy company. Bing only started up in 2009, even Yahoo uses bing. Now iOS uses bing for its search. Not to mention the latest version of WP only uses bing throughout the system. What kills me about bing is when you need information on any other OS other then Microsoft's OS's, then bing sucks.

"True but they both need each other. Without google those windows user couldn't have find anything on Internet. Google is arguable the best search engine(my opinion) as windows on pc is arguably the best desktop os(my opinion)." Windows is a dinosaur that failed to evolve. Google is a mammal and we all know that mammals don't need dinosaurs. The world would be better off with Microsoft. There is no positive value proposition from this toxic company, just parasitical patent trolling and various "taxes" due to their monopolies on desktop OS and office apps.

Actually the absence of Google apps is really hurting windows phone. My Lumia 1520 most a times feel lonely.

I for one don't use any Google services, and I don't need to. Microsoft's services should fulfill anyone's needs. They're awesome. No Google apps = No problem!

Yeah, FOR ONE. Platform with many million users has sub-par experience with services of the most popular and arquably best search engine. Most WP users bought WP for Nokia and they aren't nescessarily M$-fanboys, so for them would be great if Google bought their services to them.
