    I don't think there is any less news than before. I think we've simply grown a bit more jaded towards the updates that do show up. And it'll be a while before there is more new device hype, I think the current batch is complete with the new 830, so not much excitement going on there. Though I do wonder as to the state of the app/game updates? I remember there used to be way more Xbox game announcements.

    Yes, there are exciting times ahead. But that's the thing, its always been "future's looking good" for a long while now. While there's no body addressing the seriousness of abandoned first part apps and lack of updates to our apps.

    I mean, you'd think a year ago that developers would take this platform more seriously now, but they still don't. It's been the case for as long as WP has been around. Always with the "soon".

    There isn't anything major happening on other platforms because in the audience's eyes they are complete. However WP users like myself still see a lack. I mean, I love WP and I'm sticking with it for the long run.

    Just that I remember going home after a long day at work and reading so many news articles about several things for WP. Now all I read are offers for new covers or such irrelevant news on here.

    I've become disenchanted after Microsoft broke my heart with the McLaren cancelation. Even though I know a flagship phone similar to that eventually will come, I now take all WP related rumors with a grain of salt.
    there never was a McLaren. The wife of the owner of the "reliable" source, made it up evleaks was wrong.

    There was a McLaren, the lead of the 3d technology that was to be in the phone was one that was laid off during the first round. He had an interview with a tech journalist that is on Youtube talking about the McLaren. The phone you are thinking of was the "leaked" 1525 which was all made up by a scam artist that bilked evleaks out of thousands of dollars raised to help with his medical condition.

    Again McLaren = was a canceled project that was canceled just days before the first round of layoffs

    1525 was NOT McLaren, the 1525 is a fictitious phone made up by the girlfriend of a scam artist.

    Lags (often disguised as "resuming") are often on my 1020 and 930 yet I've had none whatsoever on my Z3C.
    And while the 930 doesn't last me 20 hours of moderate use, my Z3C lasts me around 2 days of heavy use. So...so much for "Android's battery drain".
    The apps UI...it depends. Some Android apps do have an ugly UI. But so do many WP apps. That's the fault of developers with poor taste, not of the OS itself.

    MS announcement/release schedule is totally screwed up and is contributing to this lack of anything.
    They announce something so freaking early that is still like 3-4 months or later from release. Ideally you want it to be 1-2months at most, otherwise you lose all that fresh information/momentum/hype that you just built up. So by the time whatever it is they announce actually gets released, the next round of rumors and stuff should start finding their way around the interwebs.

    And now it seems like they are putting their stock into windows 10, but its still a long ways off. so what do they have in the meantime between now and april 2015ish (since that's usually the time build happens and when they announce the windows phones versions/upgrades)
    They need Something, ANYTHING as a stopgap to at least keep the users interested (could have a been something like a 'Lumia 935' which could be a smaller exact carbon copy of a 1520 but with a snapdragon 801, or it could have been updated office apps that match the new ios ones, etc) but they have nothing. Nothing of note to hold anyone's interest for the next 6 months or so. Or at least nothing that anyone knows of. All they've been doing lately is updating apps for android/ios and just raging the wp users who will have none of the improvements in those same apps because they're all expected to wait until windows10, and there is no guarantee of any kind of success or failure with windows 10.

    There's more to creating new phones than for the sake of us to simply rave about having the latest technology although most wont come close to using it. People talk about the Snapdragon 801 like its light years beyond the 800. Even the 805 under most operations doesn't show its superiority. It's simply getting over the impulse of wanting something new, for the sake of wanting something new. What benefit would MSFT have in bringing out a 1520, or 1020 predecessor now, with Windows 10 right around the corner? Especially when the 1520 still holds its own to the latest Apple and Android competition, despite being a year old?? Just to satisfy a few peoples lack of insight and willpower? MSFT is changing their paradigm when it comes to their phone and that takes time. The 830, 735, and 535 are all great additions that provide those with an amazing WP experience. I'm completely satisfied with my 1520 and don't think anything along the lines of a predecessor should come out until Windows 10 is in DP, so you can ship the new phones with it installed like the 830 and Denim. If you really feel you need an 801 or 805 processor now, than you should get an Android phone. They're big on specs rhetoric.

    Here's a great news for you: Windows 10 will be released in April 2015...

    ...April 1st 2015.

    Getting serious now, recently we got new great apps: Duolingo, WolframAlpha & CreditKarma (for the USers) there's always the upcoming GDR updates.

    Ads about Lumia are all over the TVs (at least here in Italy).
    Same here in Brazil. As well as on magazines.

    You are facing issues in WP - switch to Android
    This is 100% accurate. Now you'll be facing issues with Android, no more stupid issues with WP.

    If you read the forums people go gaga about the new features they got in developer preview updates. And talk about as if its already in the commonly used version of OS. Then all of a sudden everyone stops talking about it!
    Not everyone is interested in developer preview. Are you guys sure every Windows Phone 8 user got the 8.1 update? Or you just forgot because you are using DP version of it? 1 month back everybody was excited about folders coming to start screen and so many people showed off their screenshots. But now no one talks about it. But i don't remember reading anywhere about the 8.1 Update 1 actually being rolled out to any phones?!!!
    So Microsoft announce some new features, then release a DP version of it, all feature starving WP users jumps and get their DP version, then everybody including MSFT forgets about the real update?
    Sorry for the rant(I know DP versions are for the bug fixing, but stop talking as if you are using the real update version) but it upsets me that MS is ignoring the necessary updates. In my L630 dual sim, calls i make from primary sim always gets dropped at the first attempt. No matter which sim card i use. Its a bug and they haven't fixed it yet. It's really annoying.
    Microsoft should not announce updates a year before they do it for real.

    Everything wp is on a slow burn due to the upcoming windows 10. I'd imagine feb, the mobile world conference, and thereafter is where things will begin to pick up again.

    It's a shame things are on slow burn leading up to the Christmas shopping spree but that's how msft wanted to play it. The interim devices should suffice otherwise people have to wait till next year for the announcements. Hopefully there won't be a delay between the announcements and a release. All this waiting is off putting.

    If we are calling lagging the resume thing, I have the HTC One M8 android for my job. As much as I like the device, its not as quick as my Lumia920 when some apps resume. Even launching apps on the HTC One M8 isn't as speedy as what happen in my Lumia 920. The app that immediately comes to mind is one called FourSquare and especially its newly made independent counterpart, Swarm. There are plenty of times when it doesn't even know where it is to do check in's. Even the Chrome browser on the M8 is at times laggy but not the resume kind of laggy. I'm talking standard android laggy.

    But how did we get from no exciting news to talking about lagging problems on phones. Man, talk about mission creep. lol.
