AdamBoy64, 23 Apr 2014Nice troll comment.It wasn't trolling. Windows Phone is nowhere near being a smartphone OS, since it fails to deliver some basic functions. This is just the ugly truth which we all have to accept when buying a WP device. I've had a Lumia 800, 920 and will never ever buy another one. The OS isn't good enough yet. It's fast, but there's just too many things missing.
Dear windows Phone,
please update unread mails, and messages option for windows phone and smart dialer option both options are most required features for every phone...
so for my english
Aerize Explorer is recent fil manager for WP 8.1 try that

Abhishek0061, 23 Apr 2014Is there any one who can tell me that can we download songs or any things from internet explorer 11Yeah you can. IE11 lets you choose between "open" and "save"
Abhishek0061, 23 Apr 2014Is there any one who can tell me that can we download songs or any things from internet explorer 11You click on a song, it will ask to Open or Save. Super simple. There are other browsers let you save files like UC Browser and GetThemAll
Mistake in the review:
"The Dialer's call log also got two long awaited features - a dedicated shortcut to go to the contact's page in People Hub and call time duration. Yes, it took Microsoft years to add that, but it's good that it's finally here."
The dialer has always had a way to access the contact page. The only thing that has changed is that the phone button was replaced by a contact button, and now by default, pressing on the contact initiates a call instead of going to the contact page.
Is there any one who can tell me that can we download songs or any things from internet explorer 11

Anonymous, 23 Apr 2014Still no file manager and I'm forced to upload whatever things that I downloaded to Skydrive. ... moreFile managers already possible. Why people say stuff they have no clue about and never used WP before?
Still no file manager and I'm forced to upload whatever things that I downloaded to Skydrive. (what's a point of supporting SD cards when I can not access to them)
WP is not a smartphone OS, it's a dumbphone OS. Fact.
N9_808, 23 Apr 2014So i takes only 5 years o introduce radical changes in Windows Phone ? But this changes in WP ... moreSymbian had lots of features but worked and ran like crap, much like what Android OS is. WP8 works and run great out of the box. Now they have added more features in WP8.1. It's a win win situation. If there wasn't Windows Phone, I would have bought Blackberry instead. iPhone's 4" in screen won't cut it especially with that low refresh rate. Android is just a mess, not consistent, and buggy OS.
So i takes only 5 years o introduce radical changes in Windows Phone ? But this changes in WP at the same time are basic functions in all other OS. Ofc to expand store we need time but for sth like Action Center, install apps on SD card, separate sound control or support dual-SIM they really need so much time ? This changes cant be introduce even in WP7, where is problem with separate sound control or install apps on card ?!
It's not new functionality, all these things are the basic functions, WP fanboys shout in the forums what a great things they got...sure xD Ok now WP looks better, but still missing many functions and true multitasking have only Symbian and still WP dont give freedom of choice for user. Microsoft know better, "user are stupid" - we must lead them by the hand...good they know how to call using smartphone ;) Well, it's a pity MS must kill Nokia to make place for WP...
TheAgent, 22 Apr 2014You can connect your phone and charge through USB and at the same time get Internet access thr... moreYou should try it yourself, WiFi sharing on any phone is extremely power consuming. It will drain faster than it can be charged depending on activity. Some phones the charging comes to a snail's crawl, it does charge but the progress in getting back upto 100% is so aggravating that it is an exercise in wasting the laptop's battery charge on a power guzzling phone.
When you use USB tethering the phone is only using up power for the 3G/4G communications, even this is power intensive but when you throw in WiFi hot spotting, it is just wasting power. USB tethering exists for good reasons.
