Hi friends today(19-03-2016) I got update for my phone Lumia 730
Thank you GSM for this news....
Yes, now we have good android phones.. but what about the time when he bought Lumia 525?
LM19, 19 Mar 2016Can you tell me, did Samsung Galaxy A5 (2015), Galaxy S5.... get Marshmallow update?Most of the apps work on jelly bean 4.1
Meanwhile windows 10 apps doesnt compatible with wp8 at all and microsoft stoping wp8 apps support .
I expected Microsoft to be better but apparently they are not as good as Android when it comes to having the new Android version.
Android users can use a custom ROM.
No support for lumia 525/520, 530 and 640 is not a good decision.
I expected them to update the all devices from 2013. This didn't happen.
mir, 19 Mar 2016That's what you get for buying a lumia!Can you tell me, did Samsung Galaxy A5 (2015), Galaxy S5.... get Marshmallow update?
dexterHR, 19 Mar 2016And what you get for buying flagship Samsung??? 2 update cycles before you're free to hit the ... moreWhatever version the android phone runs, it will still get app updates. Currently the lower version that most apps (even google's) support is 4.1 jellybean. Some basic apps like messengers, browsers, maps can work on earlier versions.
If wp8 app store was dead before w10m it will become even worse for the excluded devices. Microsoft themselves stopped updating wp8 apps long before the official 10 release. Many important developers have pulled their apps from the windows store or will only support w10m. Spotify has completely stopped support along with win8's native map provider: HERE.
Microsoft's decision is practically a death sentence for the affected devices; samsung's isn't.
csrrz, 19 Mar 2016no you wont, along with 1020, 1320, 720 these phone wont get update so you better buy new wind... morems hasn't confirmed yet that the above devices will not get win10 . theres still hope, including 925, but yeah it might take a while like 2-3 months more. first wave devices may get updates soon.

mir, 19 Mar 2016That's what you get for buying a lumia!And what you get for buying flagship Samsung??? 2 update cycles before you're free to hit the wall with it!
Pete, 19 Mar 2016As a Lumia 920 user, am I alone in perhaps being slightly relieved by not getting the new OS? ... moreLot of hate for W10 mobile around the internet. Spotify confirmed that they will keep developing app for W10m. HERE dropped the apps. Maps are still used by MS and they are still free. Get informed before posting BS
