>>52334734 Yeah im phoneguy i had lumia 1520 and im still amazed of how people can use thia garbage, and how do they spread lies about this system and trick other people to buy lumias. Lumia was smoother than android 3 years ago, since then everything changed but people still claim wp is amazing..
Everything positive you read about wp is bullshit. I went to huawei mate 7 from nokia lumia 1520 and fucking everything is better. Shame to say that, but even huawei > lumia.
>>52335164 I mostly use Tweetium (twitter with gif-video support), 6tag for instagram, crunchyroll for muh animu, n7player for music, whatsapp and line. Dunno about the actual "no app support", but all the things I did in android I'm doing it on windows phone too
There are enough apps for a casual user. If I were to switch, which I never will, I would be fully covered. I checked out of curiosity, and all the apps that I use are there. I'd have no issues at all.
I had a budget one before I switched to something better (when I had more money)
I personally really enjoyed it, however, due to the shitty ecosystem it's just doomed to fail. If they get everything that other phones do, the OS is actually superior to at least android, so I'd get another one.
I had one. I couldn't stand that no first party devs supported the fucking thing. Also, Nokia Maps or whatever was just dead wrong half the time in my area (I live in a capital city in the US), forcing me to use a shitty browser based google maps replacement.
Windows can't keep the thing alive because nobody wants anything to do with them.
>>52335823 Yes it has. But its the same as on feature phones. 5 default media folders and thats all.
You cant for example create hidden folder on phone and put files there to prevent displaying them in gallery. If you create hidden folder, that retarded file explorer wont see it. A droid offers me full file explorer merging all the disks in 1 app. Full pc like explorer. Just like on symbian.
I have honestly been trying to switch from Android to WP. Got a Lumia 635 for free from a friend, came with WP8 not even 8.1 because ATT wouldn't push the update.
Tried to use a podcast app, they're all shit, the phone would just reboot because you looked at it the wrong way, decide to upgrade to WP10 through the insider program.
WP10 fixes a lot of problems but not all, phone still just resets just because, apps take for fucking ever to get something done, phone still reboots on a whim, and you're in permanent beta mode because insider program.
And yeah there are no apps, there is no multitasking, you can't for example, record sound and have your screen go to sleep, once it goes to sleep everything stops.
Windows Phone is basically the new feature phone that has really nice sound quality and a full html browser, don't expect anything past that.
Got a win8.1 phone (lumina 635 512mb) after my old android phone started BSOD on boot. (Pantech burst, some modem issue.) Absolutely hate this phone. The two pros to it are durable (Like my last phone) and a good screen. I don't use a case, and I haven't gotten a single scratch. Brightness is great in direct sunlight too. Apps are super lacking, and I can't really tweak the phone to be mine as I could with android. Also miss fun linux nerd stuffz.
Tbqh family its the only phone worth using. iOS are ghetto phones for blacks, android is only for white kids who like fixing and tinkering with incomplete software. WP has everything a productive person needs
>>52339085 You should probably flash it with non carrier rom. I assume your phone lacks the denim firmware since it's still in WP8. The firmware was a big improvement, and your problems with wp10 come from the lack of denim firmware. What's weird is that I'm pretty sure the 635 was released with wp8.1 loaded and it was the first phone released with 8.1. Try unbrand your rom, there are tutorials on the internet, that way you'll be able to get denim firmware. I had a 635 (before upgrading to a 640), and it's a very nice phone.
Bought it for €100 from Dutch Ebay because I bricked my Moto /g/ a week before I went on holiday and needed something to use for navigation and to take pictures. Couldn't have wished for more really, the camera is good and the offline mode for the maps app is great as well if you're on holiday.
Anyway on the long run it might be very frustrating though, apps get rarely updated and many apps are missing. It's a good phone if you use a phone as a tool but if your life revolves around your phone get something else.
>>52345580 >It's a good phone if you use a phone as a tool but if your life revolves around your phone get something else. Pretty much this. I like this phone because it does the job and is nicely featured. I guess if I needed more apps I'd go the android way, but I don't use apps except from a book reader and runtastic, so I'm ok with it. What I love is adless nokia mix radio, which is fucking great.
>>52341877 No idea. There's just people guessing the creator of Snapchat hates Microsoft. They believe that because the creator just send C&D to windows projects and not to the android/iOS ones. And if I can recall correctly, some guy who did a really great 3rd party snapchat app for WP confirmed he pulled the app out of the store because of the C&D he got
>>52345947 The rumors are that the x86 one might be a business oriented device.
I'm more referring to the fact that if they release a new generation of flagship phones next year, it'll actually be the first Lumia Phone wholly designed in house by Microsoft and Panos Panay - the guy who designs the Surface Book and Surface Pro.
The 950 and 950XL are the last remnants of Nokia design school.
>>52346333 Panay's Surface design team has yet to disappoint me with their industrial design. They've had over a year now to work on the next flagship device - completely with him and his team in charge.
I'll be very surprised if it doesn't have some kind inspiration from the Surface Pro and Surface Book baked into the next flagship Lumia device.
>>52346523 Do it. OW the Edge is much better than IE, FLAC support, actually organized Settings and Store app, more personalization options and other stuff I might not remember now. 630 here and runs no different than 8.1 denim regarding speed.
