Scott, 23 May 2016You're damn right. Google PlayStore is all about quantity but the quality of apps is horrible... moreAt last! Some sensible comments about the app situation! Quantity does not mean quality!
All Microsoft apps works brilliantly over the Android and IOS.And it fails to perform its own Windows platform. For example -/Microsoft office having so many limitations in Windows but works without any Limitations in Android phones.
Scott, 23 May 2016You're damn right. Google PlayStore is all about quantity but the quality of apps is horrible... moreIf Windows phone is better than Android and Google play not having quality apps.Then what about Facebook and Instagram apps in Windows they just pathetic.You can't see complete piccture in Instagram you have to install 6tag to view complete picture.Stop all these arguments. Windows market dicreasing day by day now it comes to 1% from its earlier position 2.8% and finally Microsoft give up its mobile business.No Lumia devices in comming months and Surface phone put at the hold.Don't blame Android.Android is most successful OS in Mobile world.In terms of Stability and security then no OS will compete with IOS .You don't know Microsoft making money only by supporting to Android and IOS with their apps.No doubt Microsoft is the software giant and still leader in Software development. But in Smartphone they just fails at least till date.I hope they do something good in future.Today's mobile market complety captured by Android and IOS.
A Game, 23 May 2016Does anyone know why the MS Camera app only shows 16MP for a quality or size level but the cam... moreIt depends on what aspect ratio you choose. 16:9 is the default aspect ratio and hence, a little lower megapixels are used
Well, I finally got mine, my own Nokia Lumia 1520, it was a bit pricey for what i was used to handling before, however it was all worth it. I had been looking for this phablet for almost a year and now I got it, and god damn I love it. Its all and beyond everything I was expecting, Its basically a beast, my first flagship phone ever. Only drawback I find is that I'm currently running Windows 10 on it and it drains battery like hell eventhough it's got a huge battery 3400. Overall, I'm more than happy to own this beautiful piece of tech. Hope they release the final windows 10 soon for my flagship.

Google PlayStore is all about quantity but the quality of apps is horrible.
While on Windows Phones the apps are no doubt lesser but all of them work better.
I recently updated my 1520 to Windows 10 Mobile and I was quite surprised to find the ScummVM app in Store. And the most astonishing fact is that it was the latest 1.8.0 version of ScummVM while Android is still stuck on old 1.7.0 release. Not only that it had more options like resolution scaling, texture smoothening which aren't available on the Android version of the app and unlike the Android version of ScummVM the sound on Windows 10 Mobile version doesn't crack even at high gain.
Does anyone know why the MS Camera app only shows 16MP for a quality or size level but the camera is supposed to be 20MP?

Anonymous, 06 May 2016I am also experiencing the same problem...do i have to change battery or should I do somethin... moreIts a software bug in the windows 10 OS, I recommend you to opt out from upgrading your OS to 10 until there's a bug fix for the battery drain. For the moment, my advice to you is to download the window device Recovery Tool and downgrade to Window 8.1 denim.
BobBi bLaNkSoN, 16 May 2016After updating to windows 10 my battery 🔋 drains easily The battery drain is due to a few bugs in the OS, I suggest you try updating your phone again or use windowsphone recovery tool and recover the os to 8.1 denim and continue using it until windows phone come up with a stable OS with battery drain bug fixes.
So many ppl keep talking about not many apps on Windows Store, I get bugged I recently exchanged my Nokia lumia 1520 for OPO-1+1 device and noticed except for a few apps which work on Android OS most other apps are just utter crap to sum up everything in simple words.
For starters, there's 5 version of Youtube downloader app in Android Appstore but of them only one app actually work while the rest is crap, secondly the amount of advertising in the application can drive people insane I hate using an Android OS, in comparison Windows Mobile OS has ads but they don't pop up like they do in Android OS. Some vitals app are missing from Windows Store like snapchat, Instagram, facebook, messenger (Fb-available on window store, but aint that customizable like on android.) WPS office which is better than, Microsoft office and allows the user to save files as PDF which isn't available on MobileOffice offered by windows phone.
Then I also hate the fact that I cannot download a game and play on the device without adding an account with Google Play services which can get irritating. Some apps work much better than on Window OS than that of Android OS for example: Facebook Page Manager Pro, Whatsapp, 6Tag, they have superb integration on Windows OS than you find on any android os. Thirdly, Android suck in battery life Lollipop or Marshmallow, every time you keep your hands on the screen and type you'll notice that battery charge going down and when the battery level reaches 50% or less the battery begins to drain faster which is quite strange and I've noticed it on many android devices like samsung, oneplus 2, Xiaomi, LG G3 and even on HTC devices, that's kind of freaky. I thoroughly enjoyed watching my favourite movies and tv series on my earlier NL1520 with a few specific apps and after switching to Oneplus One i've noticed finding a decent app that offered me live streaming of recent movies and tv series in next to impossible, apps like boxtv is utter crap, the same goes for apps like Hotstar which offers some decent movies and series streaming but, you don't have access to HBO content or Netflix original content.
