quote: Nothing stopping Microsoft from putting pressure on the carriers to get the updates out there.
quote: That's the extent that I agree with you. But still the AVERAGE user doesnt know this. They think because its a windows phone, Microsoft is the one liable. could write you an analogy where some joe six pack buys something and thinks the manufacturer is culpable for maintaining it, but anyhoo I really can't be bothered to explain.Keep on thinking tho. That when people buy phones. They think its all the carriers fault!

quote: Nobody is using Windows Phone, so nobody is DEVELOPING for Windows Phone. That is a legitimate problem
quote: The 635 was built to be low end, the S4 was high end just older. There is a difference between a former flagship and a device built for the low end.
quote: And he's comparing a budget phone to a year old flagship.

quote: I have been running droid for a while, from Moto-x, to LG, and to S3 recently.Yesterday I left sprint and jumped to T-mobile, and got myself the new Nokia Lumia 635, and it was crippled. I don't use many apps, and I don't game on my phone. I mainly use google maps, Gmail, dropbox, NPR, NYTimes, calendar, calculator, camera to take photos while mountain biking, and winamp for music. The Nokia 635 didn't have dropbox, couldn't add a playlist onto the phone, the camera sucked, no google maps, no firefox.I couldn't take it anymore, so I returned it and lost $50 for restocking fee and got myself a Samsung S4. I have a big smile on my face now.I'm sorry Microsoft, I tried your product and I'm not impressed. The hardware was perfect, but the software really was lacking.

quote: Hey Captain Fanboi, even the iPhone can run Google Apps and Google Now. Why can't Windows Phone?
quote: We're not talking Angry Birds here, Dropbox is a pretty big one. You can't seriously expect people to NOT call out the lack of an official Dropbox app for Windows Phone!
quote: How dare people have expectations and think Microsoft would have a competitive platform by now!! They should just use ALL Microsoft apps and be happy, right?
