    I have to blame to MSFT we have paid for quality services, as they promised... yes I do help people here... but I gotta speak it ... hieghts.. waiting waiting coming soon, ... regional discrimination bla bla
    No, you paid for the absolute low end of the Nokia phone line which happens to be a remarkably good device given its limitations. I am sorry but this comes off like a tantrum about the fact that you purchased a device that is hamstrung by its hardware and you want it to magically be a 928 or 1020. Please find me an Android device with less than 1GB of RAM that isn't plagued by lag or OS bugs - actually just point out the low end 512MB Android devices at all or any (at any level) where lag and bugs aren't a common theme. Does the 520 fill its intended function as an entry level phone with app support? I think the answer is yes. Will some apps not work or be unavailable due to its hardware limitations? The answer again is yes and that is just life. If someone goes out and buys an Atom powered 8 in Windows tablet, do they really think it is going to run Photoshop CC like a Surface Pro 2 or Lenovo Yoga Pro 2?

    Unfortunately, the underlying logic is fatally flawed if you expect the lowest end device in the market will perform like the highest end. It is also not discrimination if a manufacturer cannot sell the high end devices in sufficient numbers to justify the market investment in some areas. They are selling what the market can buy and will bear. No one is in the business as a charity so they must be able to make a profit. App support is sufficient for the broad array of WP devices - not perfect but sufficient. If some things don't work at the entry level that is simply a fact of life. If your friends have different phones that meet the goal you desire then you have also already identified a solution to your problem....

    Moving on... Moving on is not free have to shell out money. I have complaints how they badly handling is Microsoft. Awesome os power is underutilized. Live tiles not live now we have 1 minute tile update but the way developers take this os gonna take year. I gues wp 8.2 may fix it.
    I don't think WP is under-utilized at all. Live tiles has improved by alot with WP8.1. And if you want instance notifications, there is action center for you now. FYI, Android widgets are not always running behind the scene either. It will kill the battery in no time if the tiles / widgets are going to work like you suggest. Moreover, is all up to developers for them to utilize the tiles. AFAIK, tiles are working fine because I do see tiles being updated when there are new emails or new messages.

    As a matter of fact, before hopping on to a platform perhaps you should have read all about the OS and its app supports first. If money is a concerned, you shouldn't have try a new platform but got for iPhone instead. Hence, I will say this OS is not for you at all. Move on. Sell your WP and get a cheap Android out there. I'm not saying as a fan boy but this is a very common response from everyone no matter which platform you are on.

    Majority of users want all these basic features.. they want apps too that's why there are so many apps... social app ?? look how bad is facebook app..., how bad is twitter app, foursquare app is pathetic... we have apps.. quality and functionality veryyy low..
    The greatest majority of users are not enthusiasts and don't care about foursquare. A 512GB phone will work just fine for them.

    If you are a student and play games as you say, you didn't do your homework when you bought the 520. You bought it because it was not expensive and expect the performance of a more expensive phone.

    I dunno what are you talking about? 630 can run Asphalt 8 alright.



    Try running this game on a same budgeted Android handset and see how it lags. Don't believe? Go ahead and try.

    Seriously, I don't find Facebook that bad. Have you see the latest Android version of Facebook app? The default new feed is no longer sorted by latest feed! You need to go to the advance menu in order to see latest feeds. Is so troublesome! At the very least, the WP version is still working like what we are familiar with. I can still check in, post updates, post comments, etc with the Facebook. So what's wrong with it?

    As for Instagram, Twitter, etc we have much better 3rd party ones. We even have better a MetroTube for YouTube. Sometimes, is not about official apps or not. As long as you can get things done, who cares if it is official or not??

    Actually, the FB app on WP 8.1 is way way better than the OFFICIAL one on the iPhone. I do have an iPhone 4, and the app is so damn slow (no freezing, just slowly loading). So there is nothing co complain against WP.

    I have 1520 with 8.1.
    I bought it few days before 8.1 DP started to roll out, so don't know much about FB on 8.0.
    I can see friends feed in my News feed.
    As I mentioned, the app on iPhone (at least 4) is much much slower.

    And BTW, Joe Belfiore wrote about coming updates for FB app. Please stay calm, everybody will be happy, I'm sure.

    OP. Do what I did. Simply move to Android. Spend more than $300 on your next phone. I had a L925. Very good hardware. Terrible app support. Such a shame.

    You were complaining that the app is slow, you confirmed what Joe said (performance improvements), and now you're complaining about 'no big updates'... You don't even know what's gonna be added/fixed in the update since there is no official changelog, or even a RUMOR.
    Try to understand, that if I CAN see my friends activity in the feed, then the app is capable to show anyone's activity in the feed. If something is working wrong on your phone - it might be your own phone's issue. I didn't check the entire forum, I'm sure there are other people who are experiencing different issues with FB app, but please don't generalize your own experience.

    I agree, some apps are lacking some features comparing to those on Android on iOS, but what did you expect when you bought your phone with an OS, who's market share is SMALL comparing to the same OSes? You will NEVER see a mobile OS which has EVERY feature in the world. But since you are complaining about something that you need and is lacking - you should change your device.

    If you really want to use a Lumia phone (or other Windows Phone, whatever), you should HELP the OS to become better. It's not only Microsoft's and developers' task, EVERYBODY are contributing.

    Good. Guess you found your solution. If WP is an OS which you need to tolerate, I suggest you should sell it away to recoup some cash and go for a cheap Android. Then share your experience with Android on a budgeted device. We will be waiting. :)

    So windows phone is for whom ??
    A lot of people if you haven't noticed you're on a WP users forum.

    What is your point now with this thread? You've made it very clear you don't like WP and are going to switch, do you want an apology or people to try to convince you to stay, because that won't happen.

    Preference of an OS is all a matter of opinion. App nuts should go on iOS and nobody would argue that. WP has all the apps I need.
