Say Goodbye to Windows Phone.
Microsoft has finally accepted that their mobile operating system needs to rest out of mobile industry as their not going to focus on building any new hardware nor features on Windows Phone mobile devices.
Windows Phone are one of the mainstream OS for so many years from its pioneer bearer: Nokia specifically the release of Nokia Lumia 710 and Nokia Lumia 800. But as time goes by, the volume of users keeps on decreasing as developers have no motivation to create an App and companies have no reason to invest on that platform.
Windows Phone is not a bad mobile operating system but because of a limited applications and games on its Windows Store (Microsoft Store) than those on the Google Play or Apple App Store.
Microsoft did their best to keep Windows Phone alive, they even wrote Apps for them but because of that, they admitted to let Windows Phone put into rest.
A Nokia Lumia 1020 is a flagship phone running on Windows Phone 8.1, it is a great camera phone but for now the operating system lacks a lot of feature and any new applications that you’ll see on Google Play or Apple App Store won’t be on this 41MP camera phone nor even an update to Windows 10 Mobile OS is not possible.
Nokia realized that this will happen so they switch on making Android Nokia devices.
Lumia was turn over to Microsoft devices (with some other brands) and continue to market Windows Phone as well as updating some of the Windows Phone 8.1 to Windows 10 Mobile OS and making devices with Windows 10 Mobile OS out of the box to attract more customers but the concept failed to catch on.
In my opinion, Windows Phone is the best operating system for mobile devices (if Windows Store has full of latest Apps & Games).
Microsoft’s not so latest mobile device is a Lumia 650 which might be the last Windows Phone to be released by Microsoft which runs Windows 10 Mobile OS out of the box.
Windows 10 Mobile OS has a better features and GUI than its previous OS, but with the Windows Store (Microsoft Store) not having Apps & Games that end-users want to download, a phone with this OS might not be a choice of purchase.
Microsoft still continue to support the platform like bug fixes and security updates but this is the end for Windows 10 Mobile OS coming to any future mobile devices.
