    I agree but also realize that individual app providers should be able to collectively bring more resource and therefore more functionality than any individual corporation can.

    Multi share goes some way toward allowing a single tweet to be sent simultaneously to Facebook.

    Although the original Windows Phone was a design tour de force, it had to eventually face commercial reality.

    What I find absolutely hysterical about this is when reading a typical WP complaint thread (and there are thousands of them) the most consistent argument you'll see for adding this or that feature is "Android can do this". Now WP is too "Android like". Unbelievable.

    I know! It's like they want WP to be ahead of Android in the market but they want it to be stuck on wp7 feature list. Smh

    The main issue for me is how we now have to micro manage apps. Something which we didn't have to do in wp8.. I agree with you there that it's becoming too much like android..

    It's the, "I want my cake and eat it too" mentality.

    Me personally, I never used WP7.x so I don't know what I missed. I just jumped to WP8 back last summer and yes there were some things I missed on WP8 (and even WP8.1) that I could do on Android. Most if it though had to do with apps (or lack of), and VERY little to do with the OS itself. Now that WP8.x has matured somewhat and the so called "app gap" has been narrowed, I can do EVERYTHING on my Icon that I could do on my GN2, expect for ONE item. And that is connect to my camera's Eye-Fi card with my phone. Since that is an APP issue and not an OS issue, I can't blame Microsoft or Nokia.

    I find that WP8.x OS is a whole heck of a lot faster than Android, it is sleek and polished, and it is different and new. Like I said previously, if Microsoft wants to increase its market share, then it needs to convert Android users first. Not because iOS is better, but because the majority of the world (and Microsoft is thinking global) uses Android powered phones.

    Actually since KitKat Android is just as fast ad any other OS. WP is not some special case for speed. At that the speed differences between each OS (iOS, Android an WP) are so minimal that you have to focus on more than just speed as a selling point.

    Then you have to take into consideration what does WP do that is so different from Android? Its one thing to do something different but so far WP just does the same things but it just looks different. Because WP is definitely not there to get hardcore Android fans away from phones like the G3, M8, S5 or Z2.

    But just so you know, micro managing apps is now unnecessary on Android for the most part. Like I've said before, WP & Android have switched places!

    Actually most of people here are forgoting the core of wp itself. Wp has not lost it uniqe start screen or UI. Notif center fine by me since i won't be able to read multiple notif at same time. It would be nice to have more clue than just notif on live tile. Second the wp 8.x core are windows NT. It make lot of good compatibility with windows PC. some compatible app that have been purchase are available for both wp8 and win8 device in single transaction. I don't see such relation between Android and Linux and if you talk about ubuntu mobile it never came close

    The whole reason why wp 8 had it name because of windows NT kernel. If not it why bother create new OS. Just develop wp 7 it would be more efficient than create new OS

    It not about the UI that make wp it about the kernel seriously
