Although Windows Phone 8’s smartphone market share is still insignificant when compared to Android and iOS, the future looks somewhat bright for Microsoft – at least if we’re checking out the most recent Readers’ Choice satisfaction award given
According to the publication and its survey respondents, Windows Phone 8 is the top mobile operating system when it comes to customer satisfaction – with an average satisfaction rating of 9.0.
Apple’s iOS follows (with 8.6), then come Android (8.1), the aging Windows Phone 7 (8.1), and BlackBerry OS (7.1).
Of course, if you look at the graph below you can see that Windows Phone 8 customers also have complaints – related to apps availability (Apple is still king here), or the system’s overall speed (where Android seems to be the best).
Later this year, Nokia will announce a few new high-end smartphones based on Windows Phone 8 (including the Lumi) – and these could certainly help the platform grow. Of course, both Nokia and Microsoft should closely watch BlackBerry’s evolution, as the Canadian company may very well turn its fortunes with BlackBerry's.
