Statistics of the Windows Phone Dare to Live UK tour thus far

The Windows Phone UK team has been busy taking the Dare to Live challenge on tour throughout the UK. They first began the challenge marathon at Westfield in London and has since arrived in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Birmingham, Newcastle and Sheffield, challenging the public to see if their smartphone can beat a Windows Phone at common tasks. From uploading a photo to Facebook to publishing a status update to social networks.

The team were also present at the Into live music event, which took place at Proud Camden last night in London. So, how about some statistics? According to the team, they've enjoyed a 98% win rate with 22,782 wins under the belt, accompanied by 568 losses (similar to the Smoked By Windows Phone competition's). A week breakdown is also available under the graph.

Not too shabby, eh? Check out the calendar for details as to where the team will be next, we'll revisit the Dare to Live campaign once it's finished in July.

  • For the losses how are we getting beat? What is the most common scenario and what is the user doing differently
  • We'll look to dig up some more information on this, should it be available.
  • This is great but how many of those 22,xxx people got a windows phone afterwards?
  • I'm guessing no one will switch right away. But if this get them to talk about it or consider it in their next upgrade. That's already a big win.
  • Definitely, it's great to get the Lumia (or any other Windows Phone) out there and in the public eye, drawing attention to the OS itself by showing how quick and unique the platform is. It's all about building up the brand.
