It is no secret that the vast majority of Windows Phones in the market are affordable lower-end handsets, with the graph above from AdDuplex showing no Snapdragon 800 handsets for example, suggest none of the 2013/2014 flagships sold more than 2 million devices each, and likely sold a lot less. This may be one reason why Microsoft disregarded the demand for a flagship – in the end its from a small but vocal minority.
On the other hand what we may be seeing is a self-fulfilling prophesy – if Microsoft is only releasing low-end handsets only low-end handsets will be sold.
We are however expecting a new generation of high end Windows Phones in the fall which raises the question of whether the devices will be a commercial success, unlike the Lumia Icon, 930 and 1520.
With that in mind, I though poll addressing the question will be interesting. Vote and let us know your intention below.
