    Most of those items haven't been "removed". They were never part of Windows Phone.

    essentially, you're trying to compare features or apps that you find in another platform with that on windows 10 mobile. Which begs the question - how long have you had the phone? It looks like you've just started using it

    There is no continuity between Android and Windows Phone. Features Windows Phone never had can not be "removed" regardless of what Android has. To use "remove" it must be there first to "remove."

    If we could do that, do you think we would be talking about the app gap right now? This was used to be called |Project Astoria|, a Microsoft vision to bring android and iOS apps to Windows 10. Well, you could ask them to tell you why they stopped working on something so much needed and asked by users. And in Microsoft, they know a lot about c#

    no my man that's not how it works now, back when nokia was throwing colors around that was the case, not anymore, you cant go more generic than the 950's design

    if you mean special by software, you can achieve the same looks using android launchers, or get a xiaomi mi 4 or something, they can sideload w10 along with android "I think" so don't believe me, do some research to be sure

    btw you're a little late to the "we special few" party

    Unfortunately, you won't get those missing apps anytime soon. If that really is a deal-breaker for you then unfortunately, as others have mentioned, you had better return back to Android. And no, you cannot run Android on a Windows Phone. The fact that you asked that question means your heart still lies with Android and so you would most likely be much happier going back there.

    Sorry to sound negative but Windows Phone is completely different to Android. It has benefits and drawbacks and the biggest drawback is the lack of popular applications between the main OS platforms (Windows Phone, iOS, BlackBerry & Android). Those applications aren't going to come to Windows Phone, if at all, such as Snapchat. If you can live with that then Windows Phone is a great platform, and arguably better than Android, but, sadly, it's the apps that sells devices and drive marketshare and Windows Phone just doesn't have them.

    This gives it a low market share so no developer even thinks to try to bridge the app gap and put their app on Windows Phone. It is a double-edge sword and it is how it is and probably will be for years to come.

    Just log into https://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/windows

    And start looking at the huge amount of tutorials and information that's there.

    However, you won't be able to port your popular Android apps (like Snapchat) to Windows Phone because those companies own that source code and the rights to those package files (Astoria was cancelled because people used it to download pirated APK files and install them).

    You have a simple choice. Do you want the Windows Phone, or do you want the Apps?

    You can't have both. There are, however, alternatives for some of those apps (there's plenty of YouTube apps around, for example).

    Or just adjust to the new way of using Windows Phone.

    I didn't get you when you said Microsoft needs money - there's no payment for signing up as far as I can see
    So how will you use it then?

    What's good about a windows 10 mobile device is it's security, unique live tile interface, app management, continuum for some newer devices, word flow, camera software, ease of use with windows 10 devices etc

    That's a fee that you pay once and you're done. In USD it's about 20 which isn't a lot considering you can publish as many apps as you like
    In comparison, you need to pay 25USD for publishing in android and 99USD every year for IOS

    There's a good reason why there's no Snapchat clients in the Windows Store, they get stopped by Snapchat.

    Windows Phone and Windows Mobile, have great looks, not complicated UI and better UX than iOS and Droid. Android lags, hangs, freezes, has few updates, silly names (lollypop etc) and does not evolve. Neither iOS does. Windows is way ahead in many terms, and competition just has the apps. Less specs are needed in order to run Windows, while Android hogs a ton of memory and CPU power. Cheap devices run Android for a few months and then lag, I have NEVER experienced that on ANY Lumia device i have had. Lumia 800, 925, 1020 (current). I do not like being left and abandoned by devs, but that is not an END OF THE WORLD scenario. Search for alternatives to Snapchat, or ask the developer to show merycy to us, WP users. OR, take a Lumia and a Galaxy phone, glue them back to back and you have the perfect 2 in one phone. A windows phone, with all the apps you need. Just flip it LOL!!!
