    Just got a new Lumia 640 and using it for sometime. I was adding new accounts [Microsoft, Facebook, Gmail, Outlook] and I received a mail when adding gmail. It said "Your email id is used to sign in a new device, review it here". I went for it and saw something hilarious. Google identified L640 as Samasung Galaxy S II. How comes they say a Windows phone as Android? Also, it is showing my old device L520 using a PC icon. This is something, I want to share..

    They see my Lumia 620 as Galaxy Nexus. It still showing Nexus even when I'm syncing with Email App, open gmail in IE or UC Browser.
    But I can't remember what app I use in April 21, since I only has 1 phone.

    Yesterday at 20:34 I used Google ID to sign-in. Today morning I synced my Gmail account on my L730. It's strange to see my L730 as both Nokia and Android

    Meanwhile, opening the WC site on a WP in IE, and clicking the ad to install the WC app takes us to the Play Store. :| Google/Android is everywhere.

    Isn't that because IE fakes the ID to load webpages correctly in modern look instead of some old version compared to Windows Phone ??

    It's because of Google and other products, they don't "see" IE or WP as a modern browser, so you cant load the latest version of their web apps. Microsoft figured that out by making their browser represent it self as an Android or iOS device.

    Only one who can fix this are the developers of the webpages by allowing IE to be shown as a "Modern" browser.

    I'm not sure that this is the case here, but it's a possibility

    Looks like lots of Windows devices are wrongly identified by Google. Does they id the Android devices correctly?
