I just know one thing that ear piece quality of nokia lumia 520 is excellent but ear piece quality of nokia xl and 630 are extremely poor. Nokia is saving money on vital components. All nokia people kindly do not compromise quality on ear piece and mic. save money on back cover plastic, headphones chargers. but not earpiece and mic.

MS is not gonna abandon WP eventually it will come to Windows9
a shapeshifting os which adapts itself to whatever device it is installed on. [Fragmentation problem solved]
now to gain the marketshare and to expand the ecosystem of microsoft services MS is going into android. [now thats a smart move to sustain longer] unlike crapberry and other OEMs who holds on to their OS.
Now the comedy in the 2016 market is Nokia start to scare the shit out of Samdung LOL with Lumia droid pureview phones and phablets

Nothing new. For decades, Microsoft has always been testing a minimum of three builds ahead. No matter what the product, this is standard procedure.

WP8.1 has been done and dusted for a couple of weeks too, and it's now about OEMs finalising firmware and carriers testing bloatware. It seems like ages because of all the leaks and hype in the media before that but that was none of Microsoft's doing... not officially anyway. ;)
