    I share the same sentiment, the Facebook and Messenger apps are giving Windows Phones more bad rep than it actually should.

    I have read reviews of Windows Phones, and a lot of them judge the OS based on Facebook's stability. The OS should be taken on it's own and it's good but many folks link it together.

    My girlfriend too who uses a Lumia 640 was very close to throwing away her phone until I pointed her to SlimSocial which helped in terms of speed and stability.

    It's just a web wrapper tho what's the use of a web wrapper app when I can use the browser for most of those features feels redundant to me

    Yes it is a web wrapper but for those who simply want to easily and quickly browse and view their news feed, it works.

    It's not even worth debating man
    Let's just say it's preference (it gives that "app feel")

    We have a official and stable Instagram app it's probably one of the most updated apps in our Windows store it's pretty much on par with other platforms as far as features

    I'm surprised @Sedp23! So, I guess Microsoft did the work for Windows 10. I am using 8.1. Instagram do have an official app but it is full of bugs and it has just a few of its features. Lack of post editing, video uploading, landscape photo, GIF support and more. So I discovered an other app covering all the features like other platforms Instagrams. It is "6tag" Gratefuly someone did it. When I get to WP store I still see the same old Instagram. Maybe because my registered 8.1 device, it filters it for me. Thank you for the information about windows 10.

    We have many many reasons. Instagram, Photosynth, banking apps. WP is complete disappointment. They don't love their job and they don't have will. They don't mind satisfying people or becoming a leader platform.

    Year is 2017 and many years passed since WP has born but we don't even have an official, stabel and working Instagram App. Can you imagine that? Unbelievable. UNBELIEVABLE!
    Is UNBELIEVEBLE the fact I know only what is Instagram from listed above?

    Yeah I don't use Facebook much either. But my wife does. And so do lots of other people. As of the fourth quarter of 2016, Facebook had 1.86 billion monthly active users. It IS important to an ecosystem!

    Facebook is major to alot of people and most people trying out Windows from android and ios will be disappointed when they can't do their favorite features they've been doing for years on other platforms.

    I still have hope since Facebook on Windows 10 Desktop is up to date with all the features just like Instagram.
    So, I guess it's a matter of time...

    No, super slow Facebook and Messenger apps are the big reason to leave WM 10 (not WM10, not app gap or any other reason). I wrote here already that NO real Facebook users use WM 10 phone, they just want get rid of it asap. (all 1.86 billion monthly active users) ...

    Yea I will be leaving, FB is not the only reason but a big part of it. Waiting for Mobile world Congress at the end of the month. Nokia 8 and 6 look great and have good specs but maybe to big for me. Also the new BB might be good as well.

    I just opened FB Messenger app on my i7 desktop and it took a good 10-15 seconds.
    I just opened Facebook Messenger on my Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge and it took <2 seconds.
    1. Cold start vs. resuming. On the desktop etphoto probably started the Messenger app for the first time (cold start) so it had to load everything. tgp probably already used Messenger before so it was just suspended in background and did a quick resume (Android does it too).

    2. FB uses osmeta framework for Windows apps. They are built from iOS apps. iOS and Android appr are most probably native. That's another reason for the speed difference.

    You are right. Just tried cold start (after restart cp) with my old Huawei P8 Lite (Kirin 620) - result: less than 3 seconds

    Refusing a clear performance problem does not help. It should be fixed asap.

    Facebook works, not that I care. Our lives don't circle around facebook or any other apps.

    Use and support Microsoft Windows mobile phones, if you like them, or be part of the problem.
