This might just be the last straw for Windows Phone
I’ve long been a (slightly begrudging) Windows Phone user, in spite of its many shortcomings (few apps, unfixed bugs, sluggishness, etc…). I have a Lumia 928, which isn’t yet eligible for Windows 10 mobile.
I just recorded the last few minutes of a family vacation, leaving my grandmother, and took a video of us saying goodbye. Space was low, so I was worried, but I figured that Lumia Camera – Microsoft’s supposedly special camera app – would at least save the beginning of the video. Instead, the WHOLE VIDEO DISAPPEARED.
What the hell?!? I’m tired of Microsoft’s neglect of an OS that’s full of potential, and already has a large user base.
I’ve always liked Windows Phone enough to overcome these issues. It has a bunch of little features that I really like, features that surprise me in the best of ways, and some smart design decisions, but this might just push me over the edge.
Maybe I’ll buy an Android. I hear Google makes a line of their own? Goodbye Microsoft.
