Well you can't call that 0xffff guy and that greekgeek guy a fanboy. They are basically conspiracy theorists.

Could that be possible that you're actually making a mature statement?.... No, you must work for MS, don't you?...

So if Windows software was on the S5 it would be immature to vote for it because you like Windows software? Makes sense lol

It has Sense, which is such a blatant copy of WP as we're told by liveitup and others that it's actually better as android. You can switch is looks at any time versus not so much. But if you want to stick with just one look, WP has got you covered.

Fun win for WP. If I were to guess, it is the idea if a new phone based on a very well received phone with great looking hardware. WP is only hated by a handful of posters who as far as I can tell have their self worth rolled up with their phone. Most Android fans do not worry about WP and realize a healthy 3rd OS will continue to drive improvements to their OS. A successful, HTC WP would be a great motivation for Google and Apple to continue to kick things into a high gear.

Its does not matter i follow real marketshare. Android marketshare is still increasing over the rest.

Like a good sheep... Never mind personal needs or quality; just follow the flock.

for example you follow a thief because he doesnt act like the mass ? dont be fool. if android and ios tops and wp flop it is for a good readon.

Wow!.. That's exactly what I was thinking.. Seriously!

Yeah because following the majority gives you better developer support i.e. Apps and games, more 3rd party accessories and a wider community. So yes, following the she€p flock in electronics is a good thing.

True with the accessories and games. Better developer support is highly theoretic; certainly OS support is no guarantee, seeing how fast Android devices end up obsolete. Wider community is also of questionable value; Greekgeek and others certainly demonstrate that there is no inherent value in numbers on this front. I'll sacrifice obscure apps and accessories every day over functional and streamlined UI, build quality, camera capabilities and sunlight readability...

I think this is seriously hilarious... WP is no threat to Android yet so many are acting like they have to defend Android... ......... Don't worry Android fans... Tomorrow everything will be back to normal.. WP with .5% market share, and Android with 300%... There, feel better????... Lol!! ............. Hey, I gotta have some fun every once in a while...

Sorry, we just like stating FACTS.

Well, the facts regarding this article Shows WP beating Android, and fandroids whipping out the conspiracy-card; guess facts are only applicable if they support your take on reality...?
