    Americans seem to love iPhones, and don't want to change. I really thought WP was supposed to be growing...

    It's growing, but still being outpaced.

    Absolute growth is still a relative loss.

    They report and measure different things. ComScore reports proportions of devices in use, the previous report shows sales during a specified period.

    People are using whatever report fits their agenda.

    It seems as though that while WP sales are up, the smartphone market continues to grow and WP is not keeping pace. I feel that low end devices in other countries will be WP's saving grace. Hence why there's a handful of flagship devices and a ton of low-end WP8 phones.

    No, they measure and report different things. It's that simple.

    I'm talking about the posters, not the writers. Though I wouldn't say all of them are agendaless neither.

    comScore's numbers are derived "an intelligent online survey of a nationally representative sample of mobile subscribers age 13 and older," which loosely translated, is a user poll. And like any poll, the results may or may not be indicative of the actual population.
    I wouldn't put too much stock into any of these types of statistics that rely on gathering data from small sample sizes - whether they favour or disfavour WP.

    If it's a representative sample, then sample size doesn't add much beyond a certain point. Question is whether it's representative.

    Nope. Not if you know the distinction between absolute and relative. If I buy 95 green Legos and 5 red Legos, then red Legos comprise 5% of the total. If I go buy 48 more green Legos and 2 more red Legos, absolutely I have more red Legos than before but now, relatively, the percentage of red Legos has declined to 4.67%.

    Maybe there were still some Windows Mobile users that migrated to other platforms. I hope this is the bottom and the growth start next month.
