Maybe in parts of the world where the 17 chinese brands work, here in the Us you have the choice of samsung, motorola, or apple. HTC is useless, LG is gone, BLU is gone, HUWAEI is banned. And of those phones, we only get a handful of what samsung makes, same with motorola. We get their cheap junk, and their flagships, but not much in the middle. Brands like xaiomi are grey market and dont have full US band support, for the likes of verizon and ATT their phones will not work, period.It's quite the contrary, the market is completely saturated, and actually shrinking, there's absolutely no room for another player.
In the more sensible $400-700 high range market and in the $200-300 market there is a sore lack of competition.
Windows Phone's biggest issue was nothing to do with the OS itself and everything to do with MS's utter inability to follow its own updating rules, constantly alienating their customer base. If anyone but MS had it it could have stood a decent chance of still existing as an alternative.I'd really like Microsoft to sell him the rights to Windows Phone. Could he make it work or would Musk strangle it even further.
