    Wow android fanboys got their panties in a bunch after 8.1 dropped. All type of hate is out there. Look at the comments on YouTube on every video about 8.1. I'm telling everybody right now give it a couple of years and Windows won't be number 3 no more.

    I have been using windows phone for a long time and find it pretty fluid and fun but that doesnít mean it comes up as a perfect thing. It does have some big flaws in too. And some of them arenít even solved or sorted in the updates or even in the newly talked about windows phone 8 versions. These are some basic flaws set right into the heart of the windows phone OS. These arenít some errors but actually loop holes which need to be filled in to catch more user attention and being a seamless OS.

    1- Multitasking
    Windows claim to have great and efficient multitasking. But in actual itís a pain and hassle too. Multi tasking may be efficient for processor but for the user itís a trouble. Apps like Skype even donít run in the background which just kills the purpose of multitasking at all.

    The go back button when pressed for long time does open the apps running in background. If you hit the back button by mistake your app will just close down instead of going back. Each app should have a close button to solve this issue. For an average person with not much knowledge the multitasking and closing down of apps is a big turnoff.

    2- Messages
    The message threads are similar to what other operating systems have but here at windows phone you canít delete all the threads at once or can select the threads that you want to delete. Again this is a frustrating thing. The message alert tops my list of most annoying thing by Windows. Every time a new message arrives it flashes on top of your screen with all the text glaring at your face. It beats your privacy to death. Also the live tile sync with messages is deceiving. You get tons of messages and you check the top ones and miss some of them than the live tile wonít show up if you have any more unread messages. This sometimes can be really a big trouble.

    3- Notification Hub
    The absence of notifications hub at windows phone is a thing which is a real turnoff. Although all the notification tiles do have their live feeds and that is far better than the other operating system. But the need for a central notification hub is very important you donít go to check each and every email account and its live tiles to check where you might have got a mail a central hub would solve that trouble for you.

    4- Social Media Integration
    Ok so when I found out that you can link a person email id, contact to his Facebook profile I was like wow. But the problem comes when you switch phones or get to reset your phone. All those profiles of your friends that you created and stored at cloud do get easily and automatically downloaded to your phone when you sync your email id. But there come tons of new contacts all thanks to the new profiles you created last time. Not only you have to sync all those profiles together again but also they are much more in number then the actual profiles were because of their copies being made on your outlook account and all of them being considered a new contact. This is a laborious task and a pain in head to tackle.

    5- GPS navigation is still a Mess
    To get directions on an iPhone or Android phone, all you have to do is hold down a button and say directions to,or navigate to, followed by the place you want to go. No such equivalent exists on Windows Phone. The closest alternative is to hold down the home button, then say where you want to go, then tap on the location in Bing search, then tap the drive option. Even that only works if you have a Nokia phone with turn-by-turn directions built-in, or you install a supported third-party app from the Windows Store (none of which actually exist yet, as far as I can tell).

    6- The Sleeping Wireless
    The wireless sleep policy is this: turn your screen off and the wifi goes to sleep after 30 seconds. If you receive an email or Viber-SMS you surely gonna miss that one. There is no way to override this setting.You turn on your screen it connects again with the wifi and then you get all those notifications.

    7- Media Sync
    One of the worst things about Windows Phone 8 is that it no longer syncs with the fantastic Zune Desktop software. That means no more auto-playlists, sync groups, wireless syncing, simple media management, etc. Windows Phone 7.8 still works with Zune and allows for flawless media syncing. You can guarantee when your music and videos sync through Zune that theyíll play on Windows Phone 7.8.

    8- The Bing Search
    Every time you accidently touch that search button on your phone it directs you to the bing search which totally annoys and the search isnít good either. Same is the case with the maps. Microsoft flagship maps are Bing that are not very accurately mapped with the locations.
    Although in the new Nokia Lumia handsets Nokiaís exclusive maps are going pretty strong.

    9- Internet Explorer
    Who gives a damn about it ? No one uses IE anymore even on desktops at least that I am pretty sure of. The same problems are here with IE on windows phones its slow itís not at all sleek or stylish. To move between the tabs is a hassle too.

    10- App Ecosystem
    To call them boring or few would be an understatement. Windows lack apps even the known big apps like quiet recently added skype or the Viber app which just got its update for voice call feature which was missing previously. This puts the windows phone user into a Stone Age era. The app suggestions of related apps are also missing. The marketplace sucks. Not the apps but the actual marketplace itself. Finding apps on it feels like such an effort. They need to make app discovery a priority because I desperately want to buy apps in the hope they will make me like my phone but I canít find any that seem worthwhile. Also, the market doesnít tell you whether youíve already bought an app or not.

    Yea, I have heard that too. I also have heard some almost "hate" from WP users due to major battery drain (think I got it under control for the most part).

    Funny thing is, their hate is because the features are cool, as quoted in this thread "jealousy". I will continue to show Cortana off to people and every one I show is blown away. I'm not shooting for a full number 3, I'm going for a #2..... bye bye Apple :)

    8.1 has the feature set that could make on the crying Android users happy, so come over to the dark side, we have cookies :)

    We just need the marketshare so we can get ALL the apps, and we will be golden...8.1 can do that

    I am guessing it goes like this:

    - 8.1 drops, a lot of reviews arise
    - most of these are very positive (mashable even said that 8.1 is, in many aspects, a better OS than Android or iOS) -> WP 8.1 gets more attention
    - Android fanboys get jealous and start criticising everything they think is not sufficient or ripped off of Android

    I have yet to hear any WP user say that he thinks that 8.1 is a bad update. So, as long as we - the core WP users - are happy, that's what counts. A lot of people are frustrated that there's lag - what do you expect, it's a dev preview. Problems like that will be ironed out soon enough. All new features are awesome, and only some changes are strange. Some people don't like the new Photo Hub, but I do. I suppose it's taste, but a lot of people seem to get winded up by very small things and don't see what a huge improvement the update is overall.

    [INFO]As you said in Previous post "it has Hardware Limitations". You have heard about 8.1[/INFO]

    1- Multitasking

Each app should have a close button to solve this issue. For an average person with not much knowledge the multitasking and closing down of apps is a big turnoff.
    [NOTE]Close button is there since GDR3 and new WP8.1 update brings slide to close and fast switching between apps[/NOTE]

    2- Messages
    The message threads are similar to what other operating systems have but here at windows phone you can’t delete all the threads at once or can select the threads that you want to delete. Again this is a frustrating thing. The message alert tops my list of most annoying thing by Windows.

You get tons of messages and you check the top ones and miss some of them than the live tile won’t show up if you have any more unread messages. This sometimes can be really a big trouble.
    [NOTE]To delete threads you have to click on the left of the message thread and by this you can select multiple threads also[/NOTE]

    3- Notification Hub
    The absence of notifications hub at windows phone is a thing which is a real turnoff. Although all the notification tiles do have their live feeds and that is far better than the other operating system. But the need for a central notification hub is very important you don’t go to check each and every email account and its live tiles to check where you might have got a mail a central hub would solve that trouble for you.
    [NOTE]Same again.. WP8.1 brings this feature with notification center, custom notification and control on toast or banners for messages[/NOTE]

    4- Social Media Integration
    Ok so when I found out that you can link a person email id, contact to his Facebook profile I was like wow. But the problem comes when you switch phones or get to reset your phone. All those profiles of your friends that you created and stored at cloud do get easily and automatically downloaded to your phone when you sync your email id.

This is a laborious task and a pain in head to tackle.
    [NOTE]I had no issues with contacts and have used it easily. May be its different for different people with different expectations[/NOTE]

    5- GPS navigation is still a Mess

There is no way to override this setting.You turn on your screen it connects again with the wifi and then you get all those notifications.
    [NOTE]Clearly you havent gone through settings for WiFi which makes me feel you are trying to TROLL here WiFi settings has options to keep it alive when screen locked.[/NOTE]

    7- Media Sync
    One of the worst things about Windows Phone 8 is that it no longer syncs with the fantastic Zune Desktop software. That means no more auto-playlists, sync groups, wireless syncing, simple media management, etc. Windows Phone 7.8 still works with Zune and allows for flawless media syncing. You can guarantee when your music and videos sync through Zune that they’ll play on Windows Phone 7.8.
    [NOTE]I dont know how to sync and still feel WP Desktop app does it.[/NOTE]

    8- The Bing Search
    Every time you accidently touch that search button on your phone it directs you to the bing search which totally annoys and the search isn’t good either. Same is the case with the maps. Microsoft flagship maps are Bing that are not very accurately mapped with the locations.
    Although in the new Nokia Lumia handsets Nokia’s exclusive maps are going pretty strong.
    [NOTE]I could agree Bing Maps are weak. But Bing search could be bad if you are expecting google search results.[/NOTE]

    9- Internet Explorer
    Who gives a damn about it ? No one uses IE anymore even on desktops at least that I am pretty sure of. The same problems are here with IE on windows phones its slow it’s not at all sleek or stylish. To move between the tabs is a hassle too.
    [NOTE]New IE11 is much much better[/NOTE]

    10- App Ecosystem
    To call them boring or few would be an understatement.

Also, the market doesn’t tell you whether you’ve already bought an app or not.
    [NOTE]Apps are coming and ecosystem will grow. New market place interface is refreshing.[/NOTE]


    [TIP]I know it is not benefiting OP, but added these so that newbies wont get confused whether these are WP limitations or not.[/TIP]

    I wonder if you are really trying to troll, nothing of what you list there is an issue.

    1. Works fine, apps run in the background just fine.
    2. I don't know what you're smoking but I can select all threads just fine.
    3. Action center working perfectly fine.
    4. Social integration is the best on this OS. And with the new option to integrate pretty much any app into the people hub, the sky is the limit.
    5. GPS navigation works perfectly fine on my phone.
    6. Still smoking the same thing. WP has had an option to run wireless when the phone is off for a long time now.
    7. Some people miss Zune, fine, but it is not coming back. Xbox Music will get better and better now that it is a stand alone app.
    8. I love Bing and plenty of us do. Not getting scroogled here!
    9. IE still has a lot of user share on the desktop. On mobile it is still growing because it depends on the growth of the OS. IE11 is looking pretty awesome.
    10. There are exactly zero apps that I want and I don't have.
