    Hi guys, wanna share my review on this apps, so far i notice that it usually takes up to (unbelievable!) 20 seconds to load up the apps, and quite frequently sudden force closed while scrolling, typing etc. Did you guys had this experience like mine too? Please share your thoughts, TQ so much!

    the experience is horrible, glad that my lumia is secondary device and primary one is android. both fb and messenger apps are laggy with stuttering and random crashes. i couldn't even recall the last time i updated any of the two apps. its been a while and its hurting us badly.

    For me, Facebook, WhatsApp, Instagram and other major social media apps Microsoft or Dev must take care of seriously, if they want to stay in this mobile industry for long time...

    It takes 16 secs to load up on mine and I thought that was already too long, lol. Facebook messenger is the same. Waiting that long to read a message is just too darn inconvenient.

    What the hell Microsoft talkin bout Redstone, Whitestone, Flintstone, major upgrade/update, Snapdragon running W10 but at the same time cannot (ask dev) to fix this damn slow loading, crashes and stuttering? Can you get it? This is the official apps man? Everybody will download and open it every seconds in this planet? Don't ya ever care? For god sake can somebody with 3GB of RAM (950 & 950 XL) tell me there's no lag, slow loading or random crashes on your devices? TQ...

    For me the Facebook, WhatsApp and Instagram apps quit while using, typing. Too annoying. FB app takes ages to open and crashes anyways. WhatsApp shows resuming and resuming and more resuming before actually opening. Once opened, it goes back to home screen in the middle of typing or after clicking a picture via the app. Instagram quits when trying to post pictures.

    I have two devices Lumia 640XL and Lumia 950. In L640xl , many apps (mainly FB) crashes many time While the same apps in L950 is running smoothly without any issue. Its happening only due to sufficiency of RAM available. Apps will run quite smooth if such apps fulfil the system requirements mentioned there.

    2Gb of RAM for a social app is a joke. Not even most 3D games need 2Gb of RAM. It all resumes to bad optimized ios port. On 1Gb Android devices it's the same, lag and crashes. Mark is just a lazy guy isn't he? 😄

    We need to keep in mind that w10 is desktop os and MS customized it for mobile os. I am using windows 10 desktop and laptop . And from the 1st w10 build mobile os released by MS am using. MS optimize and fix heavy bugs. In near future every problem will be resolved. Whereas android is originally mobile os, i think there is no probability to come in desktop .

    On my 950 the FB app takes about 7 seconds to load. However, sometimes it does take longer and about 1/3 of the time the first attempt to launch it fails after grinding away for 10 seconds. It also sometimes randomly dies, but not very often.

    Other annoying things: Scrolling feels... sticky? It doesn't glide along as far with a hard flick like most screens. And the keyboard doesn't quite work right either. Like, if I try to highlight a previous word in an edit box it doesn't let me. For FB or Messenger. So certain kinds of editing don't work, like trying to go back to a word and select a different suggestion. Also, this one's a huge battery hog when running for me, as is Edge.

    Besides all that, the app's actually pretty awesome...?

    I haven't experienced all of those problems in terms of crashing. My FB app opens all the time with Yes a long lag at times. Posting isn't a problem either. I also like how all or most of the control buttons are on the bottom side of the screen.

    But Yes, android and ios are smoother and more developed. Overall the experience is...ok IMO. Could be better

    I hard reset my phone my Lumia 640XL on Windows 10. After that the loading time of Facebook app reduced but it still crashes sometimes. But the overall experience has improved. The same goes for messenger.
    WhatsApp never has crashed on me. So that's okay.

    If facebook app installed on phone memory/ device memory then the app will work fine without any crashes. and if the app is installed on SD card then the app will crash on loading time.

    Everyone was shouting about having the official Facebook app, here we have it and it's so bad. Buggy slow and as for the messenger app I've never seen such a slow app to load in all my time using windows phone since getting a Nokia Lumia 900. The Microsoft Facebook apps were a lot better.

    For me having it on SD card or internal memory is the same, I see no difference in performance or less crashes. Maybe this applies to slow or bad quality SD cards.

    The facebook app is rubbish. I scroll and it repeats the same 20 posts(approximately)...scrolling for over and minute and the same 20 posts. On my phone. Very disappointed. Messenger disappeared today for windows 8.1 phones(using a nokia lumia 920). No warning on that. Disgusted as got new phone and cant do messenger. Would have loved a warning of some type. The app also doesn't do much. Cant delete posts. So many issues. I know its not the phone as i had a previous windows 8.1 phone (nokia lumia 520) and the app was rubbish on that too...upgraded for nothing...windows u suck
