Windows Phone 8.1 now on over 5 percent of Windows Phones
Another month has gone by since we last looked at Windows Phone statistics from data provided by AdDuplex. Last month we looked at the Windows Phone ecosystem for the month of April 2014. There we learned that Windows Phone 8.1 was already on 3.1 percent of all Windows Phone devices. How did that number do for the month of May? Read on to find out.
Windows Phone 8.1 now on 5.2 percent of devices
That’s right. The update only available to ‘developers’ and those with the Lumia 630/Lumia 635 has crept up to over 5 percent. Windows Phone 8 comes in 77 percent and Windows Phone 7.x drops a little to 17.8 percent.
Lumia 520 still on top, but losing share
The Nokia Lumia 520 is still the most popular Windows Phone ever. That said, other devices are slowly gaining popularity and eating into the Windows Phone device market share that is commanded by the Lumia 520. About 33.7 percent of all Windows Phone devices out in public right now are the Lumia 520, followed by the Lumia 625 in the number two position with 6.7 percent and the Lumia 920 in third with 6.2 percent. The surprise is the Lumia 521 (exclusive to T-Mobile here in the United States) jumping seven spots to take the number four position with 6.0 percent.

And what is happening with WP8.1? RTM was released about 6 weeks ago, 4 weeks later we got a major bug fix update, now manufacturers are doing their mods... this is normal dev cycle stuff, and I expect to see WP8.1 released for most devices within the next month or two. Those of us with Lumia devices will take a little longer because there is WP8.1 OS update and the Cyan firmware update to deal with rather than just a simple OS update, but that is the price you pay for having a device that gets more active support.
to the apple store. Its not like iPhones never break....
The online Care teams obviously not doing their job correctly. I once was in a similar position and had to send in my phone because of the gears of death issue after atempting to update. I choose to fill out an online repair request but after a week they said It was my fault and wanted to charge me (Nokia certainly made a wrong choice with their care partners), I demanded to send it back and that I will report this. The phone was send back without a comment and I was going to the nearest Nokia Care Point (sadly they closed the one that was available earlier in Amsterdam so I had to take it with me on my vacation to Berlin, Nokia Shop Neuköln, these guys are awesome) and they then send it in with the demand to have it fixed.
I am sure there are a few people out there who only play non-add games, but most people are going to log into at least one over the course of these quarterly reports, and that is all it takes.
And she's naked!
It is a NL920 btw, and it was sent to the Szombathely Nokia repair HQ something.
