Anyways, you still have a long way to go before beginning your race & competition with Titans like iOS and Android...try to improve your store........
my options for now are blackberry and windows phone. But looks like i am moving to windows phone. hmmn
lashton, 09 Aug 2014Remove all the sound boards and fart apps and the itunes store will have only 300k appsGoogle play store too
70k flashlight apps (according to general destroyer)
1000's of fart apps
100's of uselss keyboards (android stock keyboard suck whereas WP word flow keyboard has entered Guinness book of world records)
1000's of keyboard skins
and atleast 1 pirate app for every paid app on play store
playstore has so many dead apps (41%) (old biased statistics done by android community - probably more than 41%)
Google doesnt even have a native Filemanager. there are tons of uselss file managers
dont forget malware
android lovers all over the world enjoy playing halo on their android...oops not available for android. neither is metrotube.
well atleast they enjoy 100's of "memory" games and tic tac toe too

robbs, 09 Aug 2014theyre celebrating with 300k apps, 200k of it are paid apps, and 80k is poor apps 20k is free ... moreany proof of your claims? You need to prove your claim because you provided statistics data. Not say statistic is absolute truth but still. gives us a source of data so we can verify it
there is a saying
"There are 3 types of lies
damned lies and
babakmansouri, 09 Aug 2014agree and the freeones are not open for all countries so have to use vpn to go to the storeHeard of AppDeal software or Storedeal. It alerts users of free software. i have got lots of paid softwares for free. personally i would prefer to pay for some apps them have stupid giant size ads (think subway surfer on android) which robs the joy of using a smart phone. developers earn more money thru ads then from paid apps. Google earned 90% of revenue last year from ads. poor android gSheeps getting sold to advertisers
cyborg.bit, 09 Aug 2014Right you're. I've no knowledge about technology. My bad I've wasted my 30 minutes. You wer... more0.75 second animation on 520 is better than 5 second blank screen on Galaxy s duos. Clearly u don't understand the meaning of lag. according to you S.L.A.K.E.R, Deus Ex, Halo and other games should load instantaneously on pc :D My cousin is frustrated with it. My girlfriend has a low end Samsung android and she wants me to gift her a new phone because it hangs all the time. it useless to argue with an android user who never used WP for even a few hours let alone 1 month. Only argument that an android user can give is Android has more apps. WP 8.1 Dont use too many background services like android. Background services slow down any os ...but Win 8.1 desktop actually benefits from WP apps. WP restricts number of background apps. And about wasted time ..only you wasted time huh? My time isnt important even thou it got wasted
cyborg.bit, 09 Aug 2014I use windows 8.1 update 1 in my laptop with Pentium quad core 3rd Gen. Without graphics card.... moreHaha fan of lag living in lag world. Update your computer hardware or buy a new one and free you mind hahaha

Apple built computers even before windows..and now windows is No.1..similarly apple launched iOS well before windows phone..while the latter one is growing (rapidly after cyan update) the former one is seeing dip in market...if this trend continues for few more years then its RIP iOS..however i do not want to compare both these beautiful OS with lagdroid...It looks like a chinese OS for me..ugly,unstable,unsecure...
theyre celebrating with 300k apps, 200k of it are paid apps, and 80k is poor apps 20k is free apps other is useful other is not, im a loyal Nokia brand user with poor and ugly OS ...
DannyC1982, 09 Aug 20141 second of animation is bad while loading an app on lumia 520? really is that fanboyism? the ... moreRight you're. I've no knowledge about technology. My bad I've wasted my 30 minutes.
You were saying about UI smoothness first,then when I said animations takes longer in WP compared to any other smartphone oses, you said that WP animations are cool (!!) is it not a fanboism. Now you're changing the topic. Good for you.
BTW background tasks starts when you first time start the app after switching on the device (regardless of oses) not before that.
DannyC1982, 09 Aug 2014Acer iconia lags more than a samsung galaxy tab :D Joke of the century bro because Acer iconia... moreDo read, then comment. You've enough time. Don't look silly when commenting.
I said, galaxy Y, put that in your mind, galaxy Y. Not tab. I'm not talking about features, nor about full or half fledged OSes. I'm talking about smoothness in user experience which you brought here.
I'm saying Acer iconia W4 lags more than a galaxy y. I think now you've got that.
DannyC1982, 09 Aug 2014my pc lag free "almost" yes because lag actually means stuttering graphics. My PC is... moreI use windows 8.1 update 1 in my laptop with Pentium quad core 3rd Gen. Without graphics card. It lags occasionally, but it's OK. What I'm saying is I've used Windows 7 & XP previously in a i5 computer but it lags alot. Windows have features that's why people don't like to go to Linux or mac. So does in Android. People likes features not unwanted smoothness.
cyborg.bit, 09 Aug 2014So now the animations are cool in WP. Shame on you man !! You've just set a new standard in fanboism1 second of animation is bad while loading an app on lumia 520? really is that fanboyism? the animations are faster on high end Wp devices like 1520 (almost half the time). :D sorry man that you dont know what background services are. you probably dont even use an android or have no tech knowledge
cyborg.bit, 09 Aug 2014My friend does have a Acer iconia w4. I don't know if it's a joke, but the tab lags more than ... moreAcer iconia lags more than a samsung galaxy tab :D Joke of the century bro because Acer iconia is running full fledged "Windows desktop os" while galaxy tab runs android os (Phone os) can galaxy tab play all facebook games? boo hoo. its not a pc you are limited to apps in the tab ecosystem
I would have got a dell venue pro but the acer offer mHDMI and that tipped the favour to acer even thou dell is better device and has active stylus. but then i got it cheap consider all the taxes that the governemnt adds to electronics. Plus i have 60 day return policy dont like it return to get another device. HP omni 10 is also an option too big thou. HD screen. any of these 3 devices is better than getting an android tab or even an ipad. Expensive toys
