    I've got a notification from Appraisin that regular FB app for Mobile just got a new UI and some fixes, my store however still cannot find the update. Tried changing region, doesn't work. Got Lumia 950. Just a random question - does anybody else have the issue where they have more than 2 GB ram on their phones but the store says that they don't when they're viewing the facebook app (non beta version)? If so has anyone managed to solve it?

    Its true that the minimum specs for Facebook app has changed to 2gb ram but the company is still supporting and will deliver updates to 1gb ram devices as well. I haven't seen the update yet on my Lumia 730 and its normal rollout could be gradual and will be visible in a few hours also make sure the poster in appraisin is credible enough and is not bogus update as i have experienced in on appraisin myself.

    There were several people commenting that the update is right there, but also several having issues with downloading it. Not sure if it's relevant but screenshots in store show slightly different UI than it is now.

    I have the Idol 4s 4gb ram and it says I have the required ram. I checked for updates there's no Facebook update for me. Not familiar with appraisin how reliable is it for app updates? How are people seeing a update there??

    Actually it works like this: when people spot an update they post about it on appraising and then they get raises (upvotes) for their post, and while it's true that anyone can say anything there it is quite reliable.

    Yeah, the new Facebook app is just like the Facebook Beta app. Meaning, it crashes on startup most of the time, and the other times the UI is so unresponsive, you can't do anything. I wish I could go back and install the older version, but unfortunately, once you go new, you can't go back.

    I mean, I'm on a L950XL! I would think an app that makes it through the process would be able to run on my phone. I just don't get how the current app made it through QC

    I'm on a Idol 4s and Facebook never crashes. I'm using the beta, still haven't seen the update for the main app

    No update yet on my Lumia 730. The fact about appraisin is that you could post about an app even if it is not updated. So until the poster is reliable most of the news are just attention seeking.

    I'm saying the features coming to the main app are already in the beta now and really the beta is still a higher version number than the main app whenever that update releases

    Yes, my 950 XL has 3 GB RAM, but the store seems to think it has less than 2 GB RAM. The app installs and runs fine as far as I can tell, but I haven't used it extensively.

    Now here's my question. Is there any reason to choose one of the 2 (non beta) FB apps over the other?

    Not entirely sure what do you mean by that as I think that old MS's apps are no longer supported. If you are still using MS app, you'll get more features and (subjective) slightly nicer UI if you download the FB app developed by FB inc., but it is likely that it will load slower (for me it's not really slow but many users say that it's slow for them).

    Yes, that is what I meant. I've been using the old Microsoft FB app all along. Yesterday I downloaded the official Facebook app out of curiosity. And today a very funny thing happened. When I started up the Microsoft FB app I was greeted with a message saying that the app is outdated and that I should use the other FB app on my app list. I don't know if this was a coincidence or if it was triggered by downloading the official app.

    In any event, the official app is working at least as well as the old Microsoft app on the 950 XL even though the MS store doesn't know how much RAM the phone has.
