Would you buy a phone with “Microsoft” on the front?

Here’s a question for your Friday morning. Imagine yourself in a mobile phone shop. To your right there’s a stack of iPhones with the instantly-recognisable Apple logo. To your left, some Galaxy handsets with the Samsung branding. Then, in the centre, a phone with this written on top..

Would you buy a phone with Microsoft on the front?


Would you buy that? Would you consider it? Would you regard it as a cool brand or would that not even come into it? I ask because this is the question that Eldar Murtazin tweeted this morning, and it’s a good one.

We’d love to hear your thoughts on this because, if we take a look at the PC market as an example, so much has changed recently. Many consumers are choosing to purchase a tablet or Chromebook instead of a desktop PC and, unless they use Windows at work, we’re probably looking at the classic Windows flag and Microsoft logo a lot less than we used to.

Are you keen to get away from Microsoft? Or would you choose to carry a device emblazoned with their logo because of the huge amount of experience they have with software and services?
