Damn, it's just that Windows doesn't have such. I'm also very sure that you can do all that geeky stuff that you mentioned with you iPhone day in and day out, it's just that you can't do that with Windows, damn.
Take a break buddy, go somewhere outside, have fresh air. It's not worth sweating it out over on comments section of a mobile phone review website... Like all things in the world, each platform and each manufacturer have their strength and improvement areas. Not all users want all the strengths and possibilities and certainly not at the price points (that are exorbitant for iPhones and many Android flagships). So relax... choose what best you can get for the buck you have, then use it, have a wishlist and sit and wait till someday somebody releases something better to up your ownership to tick some more bullets in your wishlist for the buck you have then, and then again, sit and wait till someday........

I had a windows phone man, I am good in technology, Windows OS is nice but after few weeks of use my verdict is - NO MORE Windows phones until all Android apps and IOS apps are available on Windows Os and I can install , uninstall, reinstall,flash,re flash, brick, MY device as i want it not as Microsoft wants it !
Ankitm, 16 Mar 2016Windows phone is anything but complicated. I prefer IOS and windows any day over Android. Not ... moremy Nokia 1100 SMARTPHONE has better OS. it doesn't take 5 seconds to call a number.
Its really funny reading a blog from a blogger who have no idea how windows phone/mobile works, and then go on to read the comments left by people who have the same state. The new windows maps use same app data as here, and will continue to do so. They already created a w10m oriented UI for the maps app, retiring old w8.1 apps is just logical. There are considerable new upgrades coming to maps in the next insider build. Besides, contrary to what a lot of fools believe here, there are a lot of alternatives to here apps on windows mobile. They can use the common OFFLINE here data on your MEMORY CARD accross all apps, a thing which the majority of androids and none of apples can do. Just go to windows central, they have a huge article on atleast 5 outstanding apps and several minor alternatives.
Sby, 16 Mar 2016I hate Microsoft OS, to complicated, to much problemWindows phone is anything but complicated. I prefer IOS and windows any day over Android. Not sure which OS you find simplified as compared to Windows 10 Mobile
Good thing I decided to buy a budget android phone, instead of a lumia today.
Microsoft cheated Nokia, and now Nokia's time. What brilliant you are Nokia, day by day Windows support is going down from other companies. Nokia buried Microsoft indirectly.
All these comments just because of a navigation application that no one is using is leaving because it can't compete with Ms Map or gMap in Windows store.
Chen, 15 Mar 2016RIP My Lumia 1520 :(no no... now you can use as camera.... or ipod with Windows phone os. :D
MdN8, 16 Mar 2016Good one. :-) The memo says people can use Here on Android, on iOS and on Windows phones - b... moreBy the statement "with Nokia written on them" does that mean my lumia730 will still have here maps if i ever get w10m?
At the end of our hope , at the end of our time, we're canceling the apocalypse!
I can still remember when my first WP, which was a WP7 could not send USSD. That gave me a lesson not to trust WP for their lacked in cellular industry knowledge.
why do you say windows is a disaster? when it handles things very similar to IOS...... IOS and windows phone handle things pretty much the same way.
