    and why does my IE11 keeps on crashing on every webpage i open in desktop view especially wpcentral threads
    Alright, after reading everything I have to say Google images suck on a Windows Phone, but I don't have any other OS to try it, so that bites too. However, I see the crashing as a bigger issue here, so lets try the first step in anything - a soft reset.

    Hold down the Power and Volume Down buttons for about 10-15 seconds until the phone vibrates, then see if that helps.

    Go to the data sense app and check if you did anything there. Also, you do realise that 500x500 is low quality right?

    People argue that it is not microsoft's fault if it doesnt have proper apps for facebook and other services. Agreed that facebook is a ***** but that doesnt concern me. What matters here is that i am unable to use facebook on my windows phone and if i buy an android or iphone, i can use all the services easily. So a consumer being selfish for his own good, will never ever chose windows phone if he cant do things which he can do on android.

    You are all supporting microsoft although you know that the windows phone would never proceed in being as big and good as ios and android. So you could ahead and keep on supporting and keep on using apps and games that are outdated and not upgraded with a sucky ui and features that are important that are not found on the version of windows phone. and search for apps and you realise that it is not available in windows phone so u use sucky apps for alternatives a youtube app is not even available on windows phone till now its 2014 people . GUYS WAKE UP you are supporting something that is not gonna go anywhere its a lame excuse for a phone im sorry but they are going nowhere. Here are the screenshots for the low resolution pics and they are all taken from google images.By the way IE11 has crashed on me three times on my phone when i tried to post this message via my phone i had to post it via my computer this is how bad it is.Attachment 83433Attachment 83434Attachment 83435Attachment 83436Attachment 83437

    I use IE11 on my WP all the time without issues. Every once in a while a particular site will crash it, but then it loads up fine the next time.

    Reading through all your posts, you're just on a childish rant, applying your peculiar issues across the entire platform.

    WP will be replaced by Windows 10 in less than a year.at that point it won't matter what device it's on, and the features will be beyond Android and iOS.

    But at the end of the day, if you don't like it, just leave. Stop wasting your time ******** for 4 pages at people that like the product and don't even share the same issues you are having.

    I'm sorry but the op is right. On some websites, icons/images really are on low resolution for no reason (like the google logo on his screenshots). With my website it does the exact same thing, and for many others too.
    I really don't get it.
    On the other side IE11 doesn't crash at all in my 930...

    That's because those images are not high RES enough to display sharply on a high pixel density screen. I'm a web designer and all the images I use on my websites look great on WP because I use large enough images that when shrunk dimensionally on a smartphone with high pixel density, they look sharp.

    I'm not being childish I'm just saying that this should not be acceptable by Microsoft that their phones are causing such issues these are the things that make u regret buying a windows phone. Man its 2014 and this cant be happening if they want to go against phones like samsung and iphone. I should be given a great experience so that I could stick with the os and advice others to use it. My internet browsing experience is just awful. Well you could wait for windows 10 but don't come back and realise that Microsoft didn't change sh*t .

    Man when I search google images all the photos are like that not just some

    Very sorry to hear that your Nokia hardware and Microsoft software are taunting and conspiring against you! There are other browsers you could try, like Maxthon or UC Browser or even Opera Mini, which, even if it doesn't cure every website you visit, every bit of flash you encounter, so that it all displays flawlessly, may be enough to send you back into the welcoming arms of IOS. There are at least 4 choices -- WP, IOS, Android and BB10. So it makes sense that you would prefer one over the others. Boldly go and make your personal choice! But not one of the options do everything better than all the rest, It is possible that once you are safely back with IOS, you will continue to have twinges when you use some app that runs better on Android or even some overlooked feature of WP that you have taken for granted. I do not share your view that WP is app-poor or that other browsers do not also encounter lousy or buggy websites, or especially that Microsoft is not working on continual improvement. That is simply not the case. 8.1 and Cyan have been big improvements. 10 is coming as well. I have had more than 250 WP apps. I have everything I currently need on a phone. I get a pretty steady stream of app updates that are all in the good-to-better direction. I don't know but you must have a peculiar set of apps, that your developers work to put out updates that make their apps worse. That does not seem good.

    It's simple, if you don't like the experience, leave. Venting on here isn't going to change anything. I personally have a pretty solid browsing experience on my Windows Phone. I like the UI, I like being able to pin websites to my start screen. I like that my browser doesn't use 40% of the screen with the UI like Safari does on iOS. And for the most part the websites render well.

    Each OS has it's particular issues. I use iOS and frequently at work and it drives me nuts. But I don't go on iMore forums ******** about it all day. I simply don't buy the product.

    You "shouldn't" have to buy a new phone every 6 months to get the newest version of Android, but you do. It's just the nature of the platform.

    Everyone on this forum has known for years that WP has it's issues and short falls. But the good things about it are enough to keep us on board until MS catches up. They've done a great job with 8.1+ getting it close to on par with others. And Windows 10 will be a massive boost. Just think of all the features in Windows RT that will then be in phones next year.

    At the end of the day, don't like it, don't buy it. Move on. ******** on this forum is not changing anything. Just wasting your time. You're not going to change anyone's mind with your rants. Those of us who want WP, will keep it regardless of your rants. I've been with WP since day one of 7.0, I'm never switching.

    Is Data Sense off in both places? It's under 'settings -> data sense' and under ' settings-> applications-> internet explorer'. Under internet explorer it is specifically for images. I believe it only works with IE because the data has to go through Microsoft's servers to be compressed. That's why UC Browser and others would be full res.

    Microsoft has confirmed a 36 month support cycle for all WP8 devices, though.

    Which means that the 8/920 will be eligible for all updates until November 2015, the 620 will be eligible for updates until February 2016, and so on.

    When oh when will the WP community finally realize that the support cycle has absolutely nothing to do with being "eligible for updates".

    Being eligible for support means that, for a price, support staff will be available to help (usually only of importance to corporations, not individual consumers). It doesn't mean MS engineers will work to update your OS during the entire support cycle.

    WP7 was within its support cycle up until last month! However, WP7 hasn't received an update in years.

    I wonder if some web applications may be reducing image quality automatically if they detect a mobile browser that is neither iOS or Chrome. Anybody know?

    Unfortunately yes I disabled data sense and nothing seems to change about that issue... That's actually the main reason of why I use UC browser instead of IE11, and I regret it because IE11 is really nice !
    Does everyone have this little problem or only some people have it?

    Long story made short.

    WP platform is lacking overall. Been discussed in here tons of times. I agree on IE being a terrible browser and on Microsoft being slow.
    However, if you are on a DP version (as i am) it's not that you're not allowed to vent your frustration (as i did in here tons of times), but while you do it, also inform Microsoft of it through appropriate channels. Chance is huge numbers of users reporting frustration may change things. DP is a test version and we are guinea pigs, volunteers.
