    They develop the same app since Windows Phone, eh! Where is UWP app? Seems like Windows 10 Mobile won’t be good for Microsoft. The most popular apps like Facebook, messenger or instagram have been ported from iOS platform. Lol. Good fail from Micro$oft.

        No, Facebook app doesn’t crash but works slow. Starting takes around 10 seconds on my Lumia 950 but when I try another, Android device, starting take nothing (maybe 1-2s). My android device is slower than Lumia 950 so this is the reason why ported app sucks.
