While most people would avoid making the switch to the Windows phone at all cost, there were a few brave soul that took the risk and ended up regretting their decision. One user went on Reddit explain why he finally gave up on Windows Phone and it looks like he is not the only one.

According to the original poster, he got the Lumia 900 and then made the switch to the Lumia 925. He commented that he enjoyed the smartphone but the apps were really one of the biggest issues. He commented that they did not have much apps to offer and those that are on are usually buggy. He pointed out that the Facebook and Messenger apps both had some issues that needed to be fixed and how frustrating it is to have the Instagram be on beta for such a long time.

Other said that while they since they are not a heavy app users, they were pretty satisfied with what the Window Store had to offer, the Lumia 640 also commented on how his reliable the device was since it could last for 2 days but he still ended up getting an Android device as a backup device.

How many of you Windows Phone users have actually given up on them?

    I’m still using my Lumia 1520 with the latest Windows 10 and I’ve never been happier. Why should I change? I own the Lumia 950 XL. Windows 10. But I always find myself going back to the 1520. It’s just so much better. In my opinion, apps are nowhere near as important as the primary function of the cell phone itself.
