    Used a Galaxy S3 before getting a Lumia 1520 and now regretting it. I can put up with the unresponsiveness of IM+ and the barebones gmail but two things are really making me regret the switch.

    - Blogger refuses to work on IE and UC browser or is it the other way around. Can't upload pictures and buttons are unresponsive. Wtf. Blogger works on Firefox and Opera but not IE?
    - No good Japanese dictionary compared to JED on android which is not perfect. Yes, I tried them all even the paid ones.

    Minor annoyances include missing the move the cursor left or right on the keyboard and how there are so many fake reviews in the store.

    I should have bought a cheap WP before jumping in the deep end. :(

    I don't know about the blogger but i think in windows phone 8.1 you can upload photos.
    and I use Tango Master and Eng-Jap Dictionary for translating.
    i would recommended Tango Master because it's more than just a dictionary.
    Tango Master - Japanese | Windows Phone Apps+Games Store (United States)
    and you can search the store for a lot of Jpanese apps.

    How was IE when you were on 8.0? You can go back to it you know.

    Just tap and hold on the word you want to edit, a cursor with a small circle in the bottom will appear.
    You can move that around to the desired spot and edit away.

    well may be windows phone is not for you. just leave if you feel disappointed in windows phone. windows phone works just perfect for alot people including me. am just tired of people complaining and comparing platforms like little kids. windows phone is still growing and android started the same way.if you feel other platforms works just better for you just move. its a free country.

    "Unfortunately, *Insert Any App* has stopped working." Never had this issue with my Galaxy Note 3 so it isn't common.

    Also I hate to repeat what the OP already said, but why wouldn't you buy like a $50 Lumia 520 just to test Windows Phone before you go and buy an expensive version of it.

    sad to hear that you are disappointed with windows phone. this shouldnt be hard i guess, just switch. we need people who can at least be a positive about with windows phone because there are Good sides of windows phone and not be biased.

    You make it sound as if I have a choice when IE just plain does support blogger! What has biase got to do with an internet browser that doesn't work like a browser? I somehow managed to upload two pictures but the blogger interface went screwy on me.

    I believe there's a word for being positive when things don't work and its not biase.

    Anyone have a solution for blogger and Tangomaster is not half the dictionary Jed on android is.

    Akira, you seriously sound like you need to go back.

    A lot of people feel like different is bad and having to re-learn how to do things they could do very quickly before is annoying. It's a big reason people don't switch too often.

    I really liked Android myself, but my Windows phone does everything I need it to do and looks better doing it. Overall it feels more fluid, intuitive and snappy as well.

    I think you're irritated enough at this point that if you found an app that 3-D printed gold bars and dropped them onto your desk you wouldn't be happy.

    It does seem you are unhappy. The only thing I can say is if our fellow WPC posters cannot help you solve your issues, you will have no problems selling the L1520 for a handsome price, hopefully enough to get an Android that will be better for you. My wife just picked up the 6" LG Flex and has been on cloud 9. Loves it.

    Android for me? Not my thing. I much prefer WP for how I use my phone and the integration it has with the services I use. It isn't for everyone,

    I appreciate you were open minded enough to try it out.

    It's not for everybody. Neither is Android and neither is iOS. This is why I don't like saying one OS is better than the other, because they're all different and fit different people's needs. If you miss the Android, then go back to it, but you're not going to get many people on here to try to convince you to stay, because we all came from another OS prior to WP and know that it's different strokes for different folks. I've actually told certain people not to switch from iOS to WP mainly because I don't think they'd get it. There are others that really love Android, and obviously those that love WP. I've went from two Androids (Samsung Moment, HTC EVO), then two iOS devices (4S, 5) then made the switch to Windows Phone and am very happy with it, but that's just me.

    My very good friend just went phone shopping yesterday at Verizon, and I actually mentioned to her to look at the HTC M8 since I know she is a big Android fan. She hates iPhones and just doesn't like the WP so I wasn't going to try to persuade her. It's Microsoft's job to sell their product, not mine. Not unless they start paying me or something.

    I love how all of the crap that happens in iOS or Android nobody ever mentions, but as soon a someone discovers one little bug or glitch in WP, it's "Why is this OS such a piece of crap!!???"

    Anybody that suggests that lagginess/apps crashing/screen freezes are a problem in WP but not in Android or iOS is just high. WP is far more stable across the board then either of those OS.

    Akira, every platform has its own pros and cons. If you need to do things from a browser then a PC or Tablet are the best options. As shared by me in the above post, blogger post can done through your email. All you have to do is register the email at your blogger account and send email to go@blogger.com from your registered email.

    The subject of the email forms the topic for your post in your blog.
    The body of the email forms the details of the post in your blog.
    Any photos attached to email, are posted to your blog also.

    That way you can easily post without much hassle.

    Hey dude, I see that you got help with posting pictures to Blogger... But I'd also like to recommend that you try to update to WP8.1. There are some minor problems with it at the moment, but IE11 sure works alot better than IE10 did on WP8.

    I hope you can work around the few quirks and haggles that this has (which every OS has in different forms) and find yourself happy with your device! It's never fair that a user that buys a $400+ phone ends up unhappy!
