Windows Phone 8.1 will allow certain Lumia models to send HD pictures to OneDrive
While those with certain Windows Phone 8 powered Nokia Lumia models can shoot high resolution pictures in conjunction with the Nokia Camera app, only low resolution photos are sent automatically to backup on the Nokia OneDrive. But with Windows Phone 8.1, this will apparently change. Settings have been found in the newest build of Microsoft's mobile OS, that allow owners of specific Lumia handsets to have their high resolution snapshots sent automatically to OneDrive.

For example, let's say that you're wandering around town with the Nokia Lumia 1020 and you snap a picture of a sword swallower with the 41MP PureView snapper. Two versions of the photos are actually taken and are stored on your phone. There is a smaller 5MP shot, perfect to share with your social networks, and a larger 34MP version that can be used for editing or re-focusing. With Windows Phone 8, if you set your Lumia 1020 to auto-backup your pictures, only the 5MP image of the sword swallower will be uploaded to OneDrive.

But as we said, this will change with Windows Phone 8.1 and certain Lumia models like the Nokia Lumia 1020, Nokia Lumia 1520, the Nokia Lumia Icon and the Nokia Lumia 930. With those models, both the smaller and higher resolution photos get uploaded to OneDrive with the auto-backup setting. The only downside to this is that the larger resolution photos will cause your files to fill up faster. If you're using high-quality and auto-backup, each photo you take will eat up 10MB to 12MB of your storage, as opposed to the 4MB to 5MB that is currently filled each time you auto-backup a lower resolution shot.

Don't think that turning off auto-backup, and deciding for yourself which photos you want to send to the cloud will make a difference. When auto-backup is disabled, only the lower-res picture is sent to OneDrive even with Windows Phone 8.1.

Microsoft and their best buds at the NSA love to see the action in full 41MP high definition.

But MS actually has been awarded top honor's for blocking government prying...

Most of the blogs have had a non-stop laugh-a-thon regarding that EFF report.

Many of us got a lot of gold stars when we were little kids. And most of us realized when we were a bit older that they didn't mean anything. They were just fake things to make us feel good at the time. Kinda like this EFF report.

Why only Lumia models?
There are other WP handset makers.

The option will be on all Windows Phones, but the problem only existed on Lumia models with 20+ megapixel cameras and raw photo (DNG) capability, because those file sizes are larger. No other WP manufacturer has a 20+ or RAW shooting camera.

Fragmentation

What do you expect from MS

Wp7 can't be upgraded to Wp8

All the other users left in the dust

Really not fragmentation, available on ALL Windows Phone 7, 8, and 8.1 phones already. Just added for the 20+ MP DNG-capable cameras that were up until now only able to upload JPEGs due to size of the DNGs.

Yeah, so...good luck with that misinformation campaign Arte.

Google: "KitKat supports 512MB of RAM & older hardware, but we'll not update the Galaxy Nexus which has a dual core processor and 1GB RAM"

Samsung: "Even we will not update the Galaxy S3 , our flagship from 2012, to KitKat, as it CANNOT RUN KITKAT due to it having ONLY 1GB of RAM"

HTC: "we cannot update the One X & One X+, our flagships from 2012, as they have ONLY A QUAD CORE CPU & 1 GB RAM, to Android 4.3"

I don't you crappy fandroids should comment anything about the word fragmentation, since Android and its OEMs are LIVE examples of it.

Custom Roms and root is available as well as Xda

Wp does not have any of those

Wp even has no jailbreak nor Dev support

What a good for nothing hated disliked platform even by the design who makes apps for its own platform

About 5% of all android users want to or know how to root their phones and flash customs ROMs. What about the remaining 95%? What about my mom, who uses a GS3? Why shouldn't she have the update? Why should she root her phone, when she basically uses her phone for calling, texting, checking Facebook and the occasional browsing? What about millions of users who just buy the phone for normal work. Don't they deserve to get the latest software, when their phone is perfectly able to handle it?
Custom ROMs are NOT the answer to OFFICIAL software updates.
Why should any one root or jailbreak their phone and void the phone's warranty? Can't they get the software update, especially when their phone can perfectly handle it?

And coming back to WP, every single OEM is copying its flat and tiled UI.
EG: HTC with their blinkfeed, Samsung with their Magazine UX.

So don't complain about WP's UI, as your beloved Google is also going flat with Android.
