    (“missing system.img” ERROR..)
    I think it had to do with Google having the flash-all script that comes in
    the image package trying to flash the .img files in the update using the
    ‘fastboot update’ method, which appears to be failing for some reason for
    some people. Im still looking into it. Here is a great link with some info
    on it for everyone with the issue.

    I have a Nexus 5 and after factory resetting it on Android 5, all the soft
    keys are gone, the statusbar is gone and the brightness cannot be change.
    Developer options are also gone. I tried getting it to the recovery mode by
    pressing and holding power and volume buttons. But now it wont even turn
    on. The screen is black and i cant get back into recovery by pressing the
    same keys

    I’m having an issue where fastboot.exe keeps crashing right after it
    flashes the bootloader. I’m using Windows 7. Has anyone else had this issue
    and found a solution?

    Hey Jamie, I am stuck. When I type flash-all I det this message:

    ‘flash-all’ is not recognised as an internal or external command, operable
    program or batch file.

    I already checked if my phone was connected using adb devices and it showed
    the serial number and authorised.

    That is a very interesting VS you guys did. Now if only the M8 would get
    out of exclusivity and land on another carrier then we’re golden for some
    Windows Phone competition ;)

    Don’t all these comparisons just boil down to personal preference? That’s
    how all these videos end in conclusions anyway. At least state what you
    prefer and why.

    Windows Phones are great. iphone and Android came out almost 10 years ago
    so naturally people adopted them first. Windows Phone been out 4 years and
    so no surprise that the App market is a little behind. In my opinion
    Windows Phone OS is the superior mobile platform. People just aren’t
    willing to switch over yet because yes of the lacking app market but that
    will change with time.

    I personally I have tried both iOS and android neither of which I liked at
    all, simply clunky and slow. Windows Phone OS is smooth and perfect.

    @KornelLaksander The Lumia 929 doesn’t exist, but the 930 does. The Lumia
    930 is just an international version of the Lumia icon.

    MS has vowed to provide updates for Lumias through Windows 10, while HTC
    has kinda sucked considering updates. The HTC 8X isn’t even on 8.1, while
    the Lumia 520/521 has the latest updates. I admire HTC’s ambition, but if
    you want support in the future, I’d suggest the Lumia.

    Fantastic review, full of facts, direct contrast and great insights on the
    phone. I particularly liked the video comparison which shows beyond any
    doubt how much better the capture from the Nokia phone is.

    Thanks Michael !

    The Icon’s(930’s) screen can reproduce totally pitch black. I’ve tested it
    by turning on full brightness at night and setting up an image with a white
    square while most of the picture was black. Then I covered the white part
    with a book and, to my surprise, the black portion was actually pitch
    black! Unlike the S3’s which I previously owned.

    I really wanted to buy an Icon, but I am worried about the updates. With
    Nokia ceasing to ‘exist’, will there be anu updates for the Icon (like,
    Windows Phone 9, etc)?
