According to new reports which should not come as a surprise to many, Windows Phone has reached 0% sales. The percentage proves that there are not many users who are now interested in buying Windows Phones especially when the company it self has stopped development of its own platform.

The percentage of Windows 10 Mobile has gone down and has now reached to nearly 0% sales in all markets which proves that the platform is close to being non existent in the Mobile market.

The new figures are for the quarter ending March 2018 which hasn’t changed a lot from the previous year same quarter proving that almost all of the Windows users have moved to either iOS or Android.

If reports are to go by, then the percentage of Windows Phones has dropped to 0.8% in Germany for the quarter ending 2018. The percentage in countries like UK and Spain has fallen to 0%.

The EU5 region has seen a decline from 2.4% in March 2017 to 0.6% in March 2018 which shows the fast declining of Windows Phones. On the other hand China has seen an increase in market share of Windows Phone whose percentage has gone up from 0.2% to 0.5% which is just 0.3% increase in the sales of Windows Phones.

It should not come as a surprise to many if moving forward by end of this year we see the disappearance of Windows Phone completely (if it has not already) since Microsoft has confirmed that they would no longer be supporting Windows 10 Mobile from mid 2019 which means that the company will not be pushing any security updates to the smartphone.

If users are looking to use most of the core Microsoft apps which they have used on Windows phones then the Redmond Giant has already made the core apps available on iOS and Android and is working on adding new features based on the feedback of users.

According to unconfirmed reports the company is working on a new mobile device “Surface Phone” which would be different from the company’s Windows Phone. We expect to know more of the mobile device in the coming days probably by end of this year.
