Indeed there is a way to downgrade your Windows Phone from 8.1 to Windows Phone 8.0

Did you upgrade your Windows Phone to the new 8.1? It is entirely feasible you did since Microsoft made it easy enough to do so...

"Lets not argue with this dumb little idiot"
You're more vocal today, aren't you.

"Let him enjoy his lagging crapdroid OS"
CrapDroid OS? I use Windows Phone OS, so if you're indicating that, then there is nothing to enjoy in that.

Now they're calling names when they don't like what's said?

You can't reason with fans.

Name one OEM other than Nokia that is doing well with WP. Nokia isn't even doing all that great either, every week there seems to be an article where they are giving away their phones with two year contracts.

I wonder how moto is feeling like after google took them...

It was no trojan ceo, it was the simple fact that symbian was a poor, but capable os, and meego was just as bad. WP7 saved nokia from software debt that would have cost them so much. Who would have saved them if the droid root didnt work out? Google? lol moto knows how that went, oh wait its now lenovo.

Two different companies with two different problems. Nokia's problem is they failed to upgrade and update Symbian. They also had huge potential with Meego but failed to nurture it properly.

Motorola's main problem was getting tied up with Verizon instead of spreading their phones out equally. While the "Droid" campaign was great, it was mainly focused on Verizon. It was also Google who started turning them around, the Moto X & G models sold very well. Lenova will continue with that success.

Meanwhile, Nokia is banned from producing smart phones for a number of years. Nokia is in a completely different situation than Motorola was.

Your right, nokia retains the patents, can make low end devices like the asha line, and then produce phones. Where as moto is gutted sold and maybe will be selling moto phones if not under lenovo, nothing is left of moto like at least nokia has some.

Meego was not just them, it was intel and amd and others and there was simply a lack of support and nokia did not have the funds to nuture a OS. Droid with basic droid is rather well just that basic, it requires 3rd party to get up, Samsung spends money on their UI, nokia did not have that.

MS provided a OS, a consistent UI allowing Nokia to do hardware and their cam software which was already good with their 808's etc.

Motorola has a chance to make even more money with Lenovo...

We will have to wait n see if Google selling Moto was good or bad for Motorola.

News flash, Samsung isn't the only Android OEM showing profits.

I don't see the mobile division of Sony showing any profits and the same for LG. And HTC are almost dead. Get some facts. Use the internet for things other than trolling.

Doesn't include the Chinese OEMS. Hard to find one that only breaks down the last quarter. If you have a link, by all means show it. Otherwise, you point is incorrect.

They are showing profits...maybe not as big as Samsung but its a profit...

HTC....dont know what to say about them...

And you dont mention the handful of other Android OEM's. That are smaller in scope so their profits could be larger in perspective.

No doubt. Without looking I can name the following: HTC, Samsung, Sony, LG, Acer, Asus, Motorola, Xiaomi, Huwai, ZTE, Lenova, Goophone (why not), Geekphone, and Oppo. There's probably a good half dozen more but NokiaFTW would have you think only one of them is making money. Kinda expect stupidity like that from someone who has an OEM + FTW as a user name (no bias there!).

After looking it up: add Alcatel, Casio, Caterpillar, Coolpad, Dell, JCB, Kyocera, Lava, Meizu, Pantech, Toshiba, and Viewsonic.

Nokia is only one who bring wp here. After all wouldn't have that much shipments or market share.
I agree, that's a true and clean fact. Everyone have to agree.

Pretty much...

In Android land....first it was Motorola and HTC ...now its Samsung and probably LG. But Samsung by a big margin.

In WP land...its Nokia or bust.

Windows Phone is surviving, and Nokia is on board with it. All else is speculation.

How much must it hurt you to know that, given your mindset of being a troll that longs to live in an alternate reality in which this is not the case?

Reinstall Nokia Camera from the store. That should fix it.

all camera apps? My 925 has no issues. try reinstalling the cam app, and making sure all updates are installed. Also download the diagnostics tool from MS, so you can send the bug in, you know like a dev would do.

Windows Phone 8.1 is amazing and this is a preview after all. Even with the small bugs here and there why would you want to go back? I'm really enjoying all the new features.

Meego was the huge wave that nokia bought into the market, Microsoft knew it and what they did they made a contract with stephen elop and made a no way to go and called Symbian "a burning platform" and he simply made it to windows phone. It was all pre-planned by Microsoft. To compete the market with goole and apple they needed a top share and phone maker which was Nokia themself.,they needed a best hardware company which Nokia was and you well know what happened.

Meego was actually a mess, between intel and nokia and even amd, it was just a mess.
