The apps weren't as good, nearly as many, or totally compatible with the Apple or Android ones, and you were left out of most of the new ones. Left out of the groups of people who's phones could run the latest apps.

And they failed to deliver a real windows os on the phone, even though they had it on lower powered tablets like the HP Stream 7 that had an atom and 1 GBram.
My daughter has a Leagoo T5c that has twice (8) the atom cores that can run at the same speed as that tablet and 3GB ram and the battery life is normal for a phone.
The Zenfone 2 also had hardware superior to low end windows tablets and the Windows desktop os was never made available.

Windows mobile was always fake windows like a windows RT version 2. That also failed in tablets. You think they would have noticed.
