Any news about bbm on WP? Coz that is the only app, that missing from WP. Don't get me wrong, I am an ex 520 user, and boy I love the WP 8.0 amber back there. But in Indonesia, majority still using bbm as their messenger, so it kinda frustrating to me.
Poloni Guy, 11 May 2014The major problem with Windows phone, there are many popular apps are available in both Androi... morebro a average guy out there can't even name a app that is not in windows store with our searching for it in google. lol
tip- if you are reading this you are not a averag guy
Kronkus, 11 May 2014Well, I have an S4 and a lumia 920 and I might say that wp is ok but it is a closed OS like iO... more"can't install app outside microsoft's store and many other blocked things"
By that you mean you can't sideload paid apps right?
destro , 11 May 2014There's one thing Microsoft should consider: a Bigger % of windows sales (desktop not mobile) ... moreThey are already giving what people want! WP8.1 has action center, customized ringtones, separate volume controls for music and ringing, an extra tile column for more viewable area, file manager, etc etc etc! What else do you want?! If WP is so bad to you, go back to other OSes please.
Poloni Guy, 12 May 2014Another big big big catastrophic mistake made by Microsoft was to pay hardware makers like Sam... moreThat's baloney. Microsoft is already helping developers making apps for Windows Phone. Xbox is integrating to Windows Phone. They are doing that with Xbox games with leaderboard and Xbox Achievements. Xbox Music and Xbox Video services are also on Windows Phone. Xbox is much bigger name than Zune.
Another big big big catastrophic mistake made by Microsoft was to pay hardware makers like Sammy, Nokia,HTC to produce Windows phone!
Instead Microsoft should pay app developers to write popular apps that previously only available in both iOS and Android or either one in order to close the gap!
Microsoft also failed to integrate its X-box games to Windows phone/tablet.
In fact they should integrate all devices like Windows PC, Windows Tablet, Windows smartphone with the X-Box.
X-Box is something like Apple TV box and provide free membership to access the X-box live instead of charging people!
Microsoft should resurrect the Zune and rename it as Zune music store that selling either MP3 (320 kbps) or lossless like flac.
If not sure what I mean, study Apple's business model!
There's one thing Microsoft should consider: a Bigger % of windows sales (desktop not mobile) are oriented to business. I don't know other corporations, but the one I work with doesn't want to go into windows 8 due lack of interest.
The same can be happening to windows mobile, the darn thing doesn't want to take off, the thing should be about 20% market share and just doesn't.
Hence this advice to Microsuck: give the people what they want, not what yiu think is cool. You can copy best than apple, just remember windows origins and that should be it.
The developer preview of WP 8.1 has brought me to thinking aloud in love for my formal enemy company, MS...Anyway, those that criticized MS are in no doubt correct, but should know that change has made the company's WP 8.1 a beauty to behold of an OS. Kudos to the chief technical engineer that foresaw WP 8.1 to a reality. Haters, please stop hating, for the days of MS errors are over. From the look of things, MS's WP 8.1 and above will definitely be the future!
BTW, adjustment that suites needs to be applied on WP 8.1 to make it a perfect Christ of other OS'.
Hi dude, Install 8.1 preview and you will stop complaining about internal files. Some file manager like aerize explorer, pocket file manager, and windows phone explorer etc can now have a full access on your internal media files. But still important system files are hidden.
Kronkus, 11 May 2014Well, I have an S4 and a lumia 920 and I might say that wp is ok but it is a closed OS like iO... moreThe need to go to a store other than manufacturer's (os) shows something you miss. Great feature and a capability indeed! But It is an use under exception though!!! Atleast i never felt the need. Music... agreed.... but you could try third party moliplayer!!!
Kronkus, 11 May 2014Well, I have an S4 and a lumia 920 and I might say that wp is ok but it is a closed OS like iO... moreBattery issues?
Best endurance rating for a smartphone...
Hang issues? Never heard of it from any place with a Windows phone..
Kronkus, 11 May 2014Well, I have an S4 and a lumia 920 and I might say that wp is ok but it is a closed OS like iO... moreIt's a crime not to have a windowsphone 8.1 dev preview my god how can you live without installing it.
Joke lol the 8.1 update is very good but a little glitchy in some places which will solved in the final build.
Ulhaqpak, 11 May 2014Because you can't afford one. Few months ago even I used to be a fool like you but after switc... moreWell, I have an S4 and a lumia 920 and I might say that wp is ok but it is a closed OS like iOS. No option to see your internal files, can't install app outside microsoft's store and many other blocked things. For me WP and android are la windows 3.1 and windows xp. The only things that I like about Nokia is the camera which is one the best and there are a lot of good apps to play with. And that's it. ..jeje. In change S4 looks more powerful, the android is better polished and the ability to install apps from outside PStore, the infrared port which I use it often, the ability to play any type of music and videos ..makes it my first phone to use. Nokia still has problems with the battery, heating and some hangs without any reason. Hope the new windows 8.1 will be better!
Gelvin - Maximus, 11 May 2014I am at-least trying to correct the wrong concepts of a Windows Phone in the minds of sensible... moreYeah ...i agree, wp 8.1 is the best step forward put together by Microsoft... It is just amazing in every way. People must understand triple customization possible with background wallpapers... Glance, lock screen, tile background. This is just a customization possibility with your background... Other improvements were simply superb... Swipe KB, IE10, notification etc...
Poloni Guy, 11 May 2014This problem only happens to Sammy. No problem at all if you use HTC, Nexus, Xperia.Mr Poloni you are so spreading so much baloney about windowsphone without knowing anything about the operating system at all. This is coming from a ex hard-core Android user and lover and now a turned windowsphone lover. APPS are no issue cuz majority a are already available or we have some awesome 3rd party apps that are better than official one's. Customizability is full on with windowsphone 8.1 and you are gonna love it and file manager is coming in official build which is not big deal for me but for some it is. Enjoy and stop spreading baloney.
darknite, 11 May 2014Oh he needs a windows phone to understand it! He is just a person who just doesn't like window... moreI am at-least trying to correct the wrong concepts of a Windows Phone in the minds of sensible people over internet. I don't know whether he is trolling or really ignorant over Windows Phone's capabilities. I can at-least try to defend my favorite OS.
