Would trolling be considered bad journalism?

That dress must weigh a ton. It's somewhat ironic that a brand known for chubby, heavy phones will be used in an exhibition featuring nearly anorexic models.

Cheap, ugly plastic from Korea won't help anorexic models gain weight.

Dont mind if i do *sneaks by and grabs a 1520* haha

Anyways, the "app gap" is nothing to worry about. It's diminishing day by day

Not really. There are way too many overpriced apps in the store, too many knockoffs, and still a bunch of big ones missing (All Google services being in that group). Add to that the fact that the worst browser, by almost every metric in every environment, is the best choice on WP, and you have a serious problem.

WP lost the race, and it's time to acknowledge that. There wouldn't be a Nokia Android handset coming out if Microsoft didn't already know that, and it's time for the WP fanboys to face facts.

Ah! I was waiting for a fandroid troll to comment on the app gap. Didn't have to wait too long.
Please ignore such trolls (to WP users, fans & enthusiasts) and enjoy the article.

Nice try... IE is really good on mobiles, why would WP folks like me want google apps? I'd just use an android if I wanted google apps ( which I don't). Most "knock offs" are better than the real apps. BUT I'm sure if you weren't so close to google genitals you would see that not everyone wants google products.. Like android users say .. Choice is good

I've said countless times before, i'll say it again. WP is meant for Microsoft's apps and their ecosystem, not Google's. If you want Google apps, go to Android or iOS.

The problem is, everyone's needs are spread out, and few people rely on the services of just one company. It's a losing proposition to be tied down to just one. You go where the best services are, not where a vendor tells you.

As for IE, I've owned most of the WP flagships, 1520 included, and none of them could make mobile IE work as well as Firefox, Safari, Chrome, or Dolphin.

You contradict yourself. Learn to practice what you preach. Haters gonna hate. Besides, Google is evil.

Cool story bro.
P.S. If it weren't for M$, you wouldn't be on the Internet today. Give credit where it's due. Don't be a blind hater.

Who said I use all of Google's services? For that matter, who said I use Android? I do, but I also use iOS, where I mix and match Google services, BB, where I only use Android apps, and new WPflagships, which I don't keep long because IE sucks and too many apps are missing. On the 1520, I also hated that the experience was identical to every other WP, with an extra column and poor use of the extra screen real estate.

That's the most hilarious title I've seen on here for a long time!

Stop taking it so seriously people, it's a phone-related clothing pun. It has the wonderful The Onion feel to it!

The title is just a friendly poke at all those of you who immediately think "lol app gap!" when they hear of Windows Phone. :) Felt like I should clarify. Please don't take everything so seriously, and enjoy your phones.

Some of us who don't take it so seriously chuckled.

Alas, the fanboys will come, so you will never win, regardless of manufacturer or OS.

Welcome to P.A., just don't do anything real stupid like review a Jolla phone and give it a "2".
