Anybody can get win10m by being a Windows insider member. You will get the same version that is out on the market. Be proactive and stop complaining like a who.. . If you dont like it switch to Android and you will see the difference. None of the OS providers is perfect. You will not get a completetly new version of the OS on older/miderange or below phone.
GO MS, GO Win10m!!!! Awesome OS!!!
sr777, 19 Dec 2015I said for W10M, not 8.1. In case you don't know how Facebook and some other companies bui... morethis news is for windows 8.1 users who are eagerly waiting for win10 update and shocked to see that MS failed to keep their commitment...if you are a win10 user then you shouldnt comment here. i can understand that you are a windows fan..and what do u think about me? starting from windows first flagship Lumia 920 i have used few of them..me and my wife both use Lumia..So please dont waste your time commenting on my post. You can deliver your knowledge some where else. Thank you.
sr777, 19 Dec 2015Can you tell me a feature that lacks in 8.1 that makes it unusable? i didnt say its unusable...this is very much usable for them who want a long battery life, a camera that takes good photos in day light only (i m talking about 640XL, its low light image capture is awful) and smooth operations and a good display. But for apps and games lover this is not upto standard. in the same budget range Samsung J7 delivers much much better performance. If you gont get my point then i remind you..i am hammering only on the apps..not the performance..i have no problem with 8.1 version in terms of operation. but i hoped that with the latest update WIN10 and project Astoria we will be able to use the android apps in windows mobiles. thats my point..if they keep changing the date again anad again then there is no question of being stuck with windows phone. Time to switch to android.

sr777, 19 Dec 2015I agree with you on that. There are good Android phones.
This is about updates. Not whe... moreSorry my bad, correct term would be features that make phone more usable.
Yes MS do provide updates but most of them are tweaks and fixes to there previous blunders and a slow catch up game.
Building from scratch : this sentence i have heard a lot for MS. During WP 7 days, then WP 8 days and now WM 10. I hope that they do not start another building from scratch thing after next two years.

This is about updates. Not whether which OS is good. So far Android is the best mobile OS. W10M is created totally from scratch (not from 8.1), and it uses a desktop kernel, so there is lot we can expect from Windows Mobile. Universal apps is just the beginning. The Redstone build for Windows mobile has already started and we can expect it being released to Windows Insiders after the holidays.
Update from W8.1 to W10M will be a problem because of carrier restrictions. But once you get W10M installed, it will. be direct updates from Microsoft. Just like they update PC's.
I have a very good tablet with Android JB. And everyone else in my family uses Android. I don't see much different in usability (usability and features are two different things) between W10M and Android. As long as you know how to make it work for you.
sr777, 19 Dec 2015Good luck bro. Let us know if your budget or midrange phone gets the latest update.
Less ... moreWindows is behind the curve. With every update they try to catch up game. I was a Lumia 1020 user and recently moved to Redmi 2 Prime. Except for the awesome Pureview camera redmi 2 prime is way above L1020.
Yes Redmi 2 is still on KK but it doesn't affect my usability. Believe me use some good budget android phone and it will make your jaw drop wide open.
Windows is still way behind the top. But if you want just some casual internet and camera in your phone go with the Windows.
If you want whole another level of user experience move to Android.
if the update is not coming for my lumia 630 dual ...
so i will change the my device ......
its boring .....to use 8.1 more......
giriid, 19 Dec 2015Shocked..........time to switch to android phone.Good luck bro. Let us know if your budget or midrange phone gets the latest update.
Less than 1% Android phones run on the latest version of

More than 68% Android devices run on older versions of
Android. Good luck to you troll :p

Do some research before trolling. Yes overall market share is low. But in Germany, Great Britain, Italy it's in double digits and rising slowly. The number is more in south Asian countries.

ad, 18 Dec 2015So, is your phone unusable? My Lumia 1520 runs on WP8.1 Flawlessly and I have all apps I need.... morethey even dont have the official facebook app...windows phone are not for apps and games lover. they tried to capture the business class with mid range phones but failed to realize that the business class is already occupied by apple..they are way far behind to compete with iphone. the mid range class is occupied with android and now MS is nowhere...strangling with tiny little market share. if they dont update their app store, they will never reach double digit share..i have no question about the performance of windows phone..i have used few of them. hope u got my point.

XD There is already a Facebook universal a... moredo u think i m making fun? windows 8.1 update 2 doesnt have official facebook app..the app we are using that is developed by MS themselves and lack lot of features. i tried the pre release version twice and its full of bugs..not interested anymore.

More than 68% Android devices run on older versions of Android and here you're talking about a delay of Microsoft trying to update even older models to W10M : p
