What I really want to see for WP is some better multitasking.. I want to be able to have split screen on my larger device, and be able to float mini apps on top of regular apps on the screen.. IOW, I want to be able to bring up a minimized calculator from the action center and drag/position it anywhere on the screen, then longpress to send it away... Small floating apps like these work great on the Sony Z3 from what I've seen, and I'm sure MS could implement this well.
WP threshold needs to ramp up the multitasking on WP... It's the only way to stay competitive, and keep WP fans having the most useful devices.
Never question technology, and good engineering.... MS, and Nokia will always make technology work to some advantage on our devices..
1). You want 8Gb of ram on a phone running a 32bit OS.
2). How would fit the OS (nearly 3Gb) on a phone with only 1Gb of internal storage?
3).So what now you expect OEMs to start giving out 128Gb SD cards for free?
As for 8GB ram, for WP 1GB is more than sufficient...
I don't think so. I think it is still 32 bit
Oh, and don't tell me because it's low end. I also had a Lumia 920 and on that i got the COGS OF DEATH!
devices...dats y its not getting traction in India
Lets keep up the verity!
