    Can anyone tell, what are the features that we had in WP 8, but Microsoft removed those in WP 8.1?? I think we all should know this.. So, waiting for the replies..

    Hubs.
    Everything is now an app. (Does not necessarily mean its a bad thing)
    People's hub now needs an app to sync like facebook. No integrated syncing.
    Cannot post status updates from people hub.
    Removed messenger from messages.
    Games are now displayed in app lists as well.


    These are all I can think of now. If I remember more I'll post.

    Facebook chat integration in messaging was a great feature in WP 8. Really miss it in WP 8.1. I don't know why Microsoft removed that feature...😥

    I feel, placement of the cursor in wp8 when text editor open, was much better than wp8.1.

    The 'ME' tile is completely useless now.

    Twitter and FB integration no more, here in my country the first Lumia phones were promoted as the fastest way to upload things on Facebook and it really was... NO MORE!

    How about the good (but not as nice as the WP7 Zune) music player?, it sucks now, before 8.1 I've never had the necessity to find an alternative music player.

    In general WP8.1 doesn't feel butter smooth anymore.

    It was left in the dust/outdated. Didn't sync messages, no seen functionality, didn't connect too well (said i was on Web to everyone else) and an app is infinitely better. However, I still wish they could bring back the hubs.

    Multitasking is broken. Before i could leave games like Nova3 in the background for days and pick up where i left off but now after like 10 minutes, if I try to go back to the game it just restarts. Thats something they shouldn't have messed with. By the way I'm using a l1520 with cyan.

    It should provided that the entire functionality is available on it. We didn't have fb messenger back then so we were stuck with either fb app pr messages. Both failed to match the real one. But now we have and it works great.

    I'm using facebook beta rather than facebook. It has better design and more functionality. Still not in line with android counterpart but we can expect that it'll be "soon".
