That's right!! We can use the same TV for 3 years, 5 years, or even 10 years. The same vacum cleaner for 10 years+ The same washing machine for 10 years+ The same refrigerator for 10 years+ Even the same wired phone for 20 years+ But we do change our phone faster than we change our girl friend

My phone is 5 years old. Only idiots get a new phone every year. At least wait every 2 years if Upgrade is allowed (I have unliminted Data so rather keep that and pay a little extra for a phone).

Mirrorless and RX series cameras sells well to me... DSLRs still has some time to catch the eyes of Canikon buyers. Of course thoguh, bravia will struggle as Sony seems to want to abandon it just like Vaio. No Ads, no special campaign and seems no new revolutionary tech. It seems that Sony is tired watching all that red numbers going year-after-year consecutively.

How are they going to pull it of? Sharp already have a phone that is waterproof and with small bezel. Sony is late again. They should improve their software if they want to make a dent on samsung's sale.

If you want thin bezels, go buy a Sharp. Sony doesnt let functionality suffer over aesthetics.

Custom launchers like Apex and Nova are great.

And lose UI functionality? LG's new UI is beautiful though.

Root and install Timescape. Delete unwanted apps. CM10.CM11. Friend has a LG2, I've played around with it and I really liked it.

this is how Android crumbled in 2014, while WP and iOS rose up.

Edit. this is how Android crumbled in 2014, while WP only rose up.

Wp rose cause of cheap L520, orelse stagnated around 3%.

lool..do you have any ideea how many cheap android phones are out there? Samsung lone has tens of cheap galaxy phones..Most android devices are cheap..if apple would make a 170 dollars product do you think that iphone 6 would still sell better? It is logical that cheap products sell better..

WP marketshare is still growing but Android is already market leader and still growing. IOS users switch to Android.

The reason of WP market share growing because Nokia need to make BIG number so that microsoft have the reason to buy THEM. Now, it's belong to microsoft, microsoft won't do the same. Microsoft won't pour money into the ocean.

I don't like that idea. It will be the same thing with little changes. Why?
