Questions and Answers

Why Lumia is very bad phone? it does not have any good app?

It does not support good apps. It has no good photo editing app. Most bad phone I ever used.

It is a very subjective opinion, but in the favor of your opinion, it can be said that Nokia was one of the best companies undermined by the usage of Windows instead of Symbian, which as far more superior. After the release of Microsoft Lumia, Microsoft has been cutting and laying off the staff for Windows Phones dramatically. When Nokia was bought by Microsoft, Microsoft realized that the phone business is not too lucrative. With the release of the latest flagships, Microsoft strategy was a bit unfavorable by software developers: Lumia 950 have exclusive carriers in Europe and the USA. Therefore, all software development has been focused on iOS (mostly the USA) and Android (mostly Europe) phones nowadays.

However, Lumia phones have its fanbase. Windows may subjectively have a lot of advantages over iOS and Android: its interface with live tiles, Continuum for Windows 10 that allows docking the phone to mirror it, Cortana (the voice interface) is ahead of Siri and Google Now, etc.
