My wife has a Samsung J5, it is working 0-24 stable, i admit it(W10M can in the most unexpected time restart...). I can simply not understand, it is Marshmellow, but was Lollipop pre-installed. It has only 8 GB space, i bought an SD card to expand it. Everything is relocated to the card, i could not install the apps to the card, so i have upgraded the system, because i have red, that the MM will let us install the apps to the card. Of course not at Samsung.....
She isusing only tumblr, here maps(with 500 MB offline map), and Viber. The phone was allways crying because of the lack of space. Every photos, music, etc have been moved to the card. It isfrustrating.

41days without any app crash, zero no respond with my marshmallows. Android is not nightmare especially from Sony.

Regarding W10P, MS focus on android and ios app, maybe to gain some funding for new W10P,(at least what i think), if W10P rise back, competition in os will be more fierce and may finally, push android to bring more improvement, and benefit us, consumer with more os to choose from,

This Sony can not be repaired in Sony Austria, because they are not selling it in Austria...That also means, that if you had bought in Japan, you have to send it back to Japan, to repair [i didn't make it, i had exchanged letters with Sony Austria already]).
But, back to W10M - they are spitting at us, only promises, and with every update, the phone will be worse, there will be more bugs. One step forward, two backward.
I like the easy, clear platform, for me the Android system is a nightmare, but it seems, that for MS, their own OS is not important, they are focusing at iOS and Android. I am sad, that i have to change, but maybe, in the future, i will come back...
About the camera: I had made several night sky photseries, and to do that, i used a car holder to keep the phony steady. Later on i made gifs on PC from the photos. Now i found an app, which can make time lapse videos in great quality, even in 2160p.

Regarding window phone, to me window phone is amazing, advanced software and hardware support, (read lumia 1020) and 4s is long enough in a smartphone,
Sad, app support being the downfall of window phone, maybe surface can flip the table
L0lip0p, 29 May 2017I know right... but it's ok since this is a phone, not a proper cameraI know also, but i will leave te Windows platform in the near future, and it grants me 4secs, and i heard that there are Android phones with 30 secs.
Sztyepadzso, 29 May 2017That's sad. :(I know right... but it's ok since this is a phone, not a proper camera
kimof, 25 May 2017To anyone who owns this phone, at which format are the super slow-mo video recorded?720pHD
Sztyepadzso, 28 May 2017One more question: How long is the maximal exposure time? 1s
I see everywhere only the dual SIM variant, with 64GB Memory.
I red, that it has a hybrid card slot. Does it mean, that altrough it is Dual SIM, i can plug the microSD card into the phone(using the 2nd SIM slot)? So i will have one SIM card, one microSD card, and 64GB(- apprx. 13GB) of space?

"Business operations related to consumer sales of Sony-branded USB batteries, alkaline batteries, button and coin batteries, and mobile projectors, as well as certain other products, will not be part of the Transfer."
So, as written above, Sony is only being involved in CONSUMER SALES of some Sony branded batteries now.

"The sales price is appr... moreMurata Manufacturing Co., Ltd. ("Murata") and Sony Corporation ("Sony") today announced that they have signed a binding definitive agreement to transfer the Sony Group's battery business to the Murata Group ("Transfer"). Murata and Sony had previously announced on July 28, 2016 that they had entered into a non-binding memorandum of understanding regarding the Transfer.
From the perspective of each of their portfolio strategies, and in order to increase the competitiveness and ensure the sustained growth of the battery businesses while also continuing to secure appropriate investment to achieve such competitiveness and sustained growth, Murata and Sony determined that it would be mutually beneficial to transfer the technological strengths and business experience Sony has accumulated in the battery business to Murata, and for the business to be operated within the Murata Group.
Under the definitive agreement, Sony will transfer to Murata the battery business conducted by Sony Energy Devices Corporation, Sony's wholly-owned subsidiary in Japan; Sony's battery-related manufacturing operations located in China and Singapore; and assets and personnel assigned to the battery business at the Sony Group's sales and R&D sites in Japan and worldwide. The sales price is approximately 17.5 billion yen. Murata is planning to offer the approximately 8,500 Sony Group employees who are involved in the battery business employment within the Murata Group upon the completion of the Transfer.
Business operations related to consumer sales of Sony-branded USB batteries, alkaline batteries, button and coin batteries, and mobile projectors, as well as certain other products, will not be part of the Transfer.
Murata and Sony are aiming to complete the Transfer by early April 2017, subject to required regulatory approvals and other conditions.
Could you read fully. Sony do not transfer all the battery business to Murata.
Ali Bashir, 23 May 2017Do your research before posting nonsense, it is not selling, it is transferring. Murata web site states the sale price of Sony's Battery business.
"The sales price is approximately 17.5 billion yen."
To all you non native English speakers, a transfer of business can mean a sale of business also.
