Microsoft announced financial results for the last quarter of last year and the figures related to the smartphones are disastrous. In the last 3 months of Microsoft previously managed the “performance” to sell only 4.5 million Lumia smartphones.
Compared to the same period last year when they were sold 10.5 million units, sales decreased by approximately 57%. This percentage is extremely worrying for Microsoft, given that these 3 months were included and boom offered during the winter holidays.
To reinforce the idea that these results are not honorable, should you know that in the last quarter of 2015 were sold worldwide about 400 million smartphones (according to this report).
Given that Microsoft has announced that it has sold 4.5 million Lumia phones, this indicates that during this period the market share of Microsoft in the smartphone was just over 1.1%. Even if we refer to the whole 2015 situation is not much different: market share is 1.9% Lumia terminals.
All this data shows us once again that Windows Phone does not like, do not attract. Many are still hoping Microsoft in smartphones Lumia 950 and 950XL, we must not forget that their prices are quite high and that many users still prefer flagship sites Android or iPhones.
Let this be a sign that Windows Phone is a project led by Microsoft or think Americans will continue to keep him afloat?
