    Unfortunately, as it improves, more bugs seems to appear sometimes. I actually hate Windows 10 Mobile on my 640, because it seems to be slow and buggy. The experience feels better with native W10M phones (to me).

    Ohh okay. You are correct on those counts. Instagram has been updated quite a bit though.

    No Instagram Stories on 6tag though. :( I need (and look forward to) my stories. At this time, the W10M app is able to do most of what it can do on iOS and Android.

    It's a somewhat new thing that allows people to post stories that only last for 24 hours. I would suggest downloading the official Instagram app to see for yourself. Not sure how to explain it, but I can almost guarantee that there's someone that you follow who has posted a story today. They appear with a colorful ring right before you look at the photos on Instagram.

    On the plus side, the mobile web finally for a lot of sites now is really a lot better and look nice on edge. I'm glad I don't need to download a bunch of little apps for a lot of websites that's really just browsing.

    I travel a lot for work and the airline check on web is convenient well formatted and well thought out.

    I'm sure a lot of the sites are annoyed at maintaining apps for browsing the web and can appreciate the savings they can have with a standards compliant site.

    Feels like html5, the supposed answer for everything web based it seems for years now is maybe finally ready to take center stage.

    Interesting, I've returned to use the Lumia 650 and 640(bought it for wp8.1 upgraded to w10 since) also. I haven't used it Windows 10 for quite done time but find it to be really pleasant to use now. Amazon is a Web version based app without opening the actual browser, if you feel it needs improvement, leave feedback. Instagram has come a long way and as for Facebook, you have two choices now. Microsoft and Facebook have their own Facebook app so I'm sure you'll like whichever one.

    What do you mean "you have two options for Facebook"? As far as I know you are forced to update to the Facebook Inc one.

    6Tag I find frustrating because it's very difficult to post a photo from camera roll or an album. Almost every time I pick the photo and it just resets to the camera. One in 50 attempts it actually holds onto the photo. Instagram is similar but it just crashes when trying to post a photo.

    Microsoft's FB app is no longer available. If you still have it installed it will work so long as you don't have the FB version installed. If you uninstall the MS version you cannot install it again. Just says not available for your device.

    The Facebook version is utter garbage. Totally unusable. Crash, hang, slow slow slow, crash, crash, crash. It doesn't sync contacts, doesn't do live tiles, and doesn't do live video. Oddly the desktop app they have done is far better. Fairly reliable, live tile support and does live video. Quite nice to use on a tablet.

    You make a good point here. We have lost a lot of big apps in a short period of time. I was and still remain a WM faithful, but now carry two phones just to be prepared in case this situation continues to deteriorate.

    Ah I never uninstalled the Microsoft fb app and use both of them. The only problem I have with the Microsoft one is that it occasionally doesn't update the newsfeed

    Not sure about the so far part if MS still cant get the basics down pat. As for holding on, suppose if retro is your thing you will stay put yet believe most live in todays world where they keep pace with technology, dont see WP being it.

    Being that the 950 here in CAD starts at $550 plus taxes that is pretty steep price to pay for uncertainty, and there’s no guarantee that my experience will be anywhere near to yours’s due to WPs well documented inconsistencies, even on the BIG guns.

    And what happened to “Windows doesn’t need the hardware compared to the competition becaue it'll run fine on "most", even those w/512KB ram”? Many stated those facts and it was all the rage not too long ago, amazing how that one fell through the cracks isn't it.

    depending where you live, you can find some still practically brand new for $300...

    I swear to gawd nadella is a double agent working for Apple LOL just the dumb decisions he's made against windows mobile and letting it fall to pieces like it is heading, I swear its done on purpose... its gotta be or he doesn't know WTF he's doing in the mobile dept. if MS or someone intelligent and knows what they're doing in the mobile dept. would be making MS BIG BUCKS if they just gave a sh!t about W10M and could actually see the direction it could be taken into! #1 get moving on hounding devs by giving incentives or profit % ontop of their money income from what the apps/games generate, just in the beginning to get all the big devs in their pocket. #2 start hounding the programmers to get continuum to fully be mature and start wowing people (and devs) to get people wanting W10M into it! #3 get that bloody Surface phone into the market and into the hands of us folks and I'm not talking about some cheap version like L950/XL is, but something substantial and premium like the Elite X3 (talking about hardware spec. wise) #4 get w10m fully polished and working flawless and stable like w8m WAS. then I can tell with 100% certainty that W10M will be the next big thing that everyone will want!

    EDIT: oh, and if MS would advert. amazingly like they did with the SURFACE STUDIO and showcase what you can do with w10m and continuum, then deeyaaam, watch out!

    Yes but still too much in my opinion considering one could be latching onto to someone else's problem(s), it’s not only the software that has been inconsistent.
