An equivalent lumia 900 that was released on 2012 runs wp7.5 and I highly doubt that it can even remotely run any app made on 2016.

There are some great 3rd pary apps as well! Ex. for Youtube there are more then 5 clients wich looks way better than official app. I have old Xperia S so I know how official app looks.
You really should try before you judge. Not try for a week but try to use it for some time. I had numerous Androids and one iPhone (5s). Would never go back for those two. Androids because of lags and unsecure OS and iOS... I don't like it.
AnonD-180402, 25 Mar 2016Ok, what's use of app updates if OS stays outdated and insecured?You can actually use the thing? If I can't use any apps why not just throw it away and get a dumbphone for 15$? It will surely have better battery life too...
Most people don't care about security anyway. They want their facebook/candy crush/viber/gmail to work and thats it. Things barely work right now for wp8 and it's about to get worse. Also, app updates can increase the security of an individual app. You can build security independently of the OS.
It's nice to get OS updates but yet again, people don't care about what OS they are running. The whole process is a hassle for them and as it can break things they try to avoid it forever.
Thank you Gabe Aul and Mary Jo Foley ... how many "Icon users" are in the US?
SEVERAL business associates in the UK - with the help of the Windows Phone 10 Upgrade Advisor *** as now on Windows 10 *** said it took 1 half hour and another "upgrade pushed successfully" within days !!!
THEY LOVE Windows 10 ...

I bought Lumia 630 they promise to give win 10.now i decided to change to ios.windows sucks
We were told that the 1020 would be upgraded to W10, seems that have been scrapped. and was hoping to see what W10 is all about. I am Android bound now, Samsung!!
If MS can work out a deal with Verizon to do direct updates for W10M on ICON, there is no reason they can't support L950/XL on Verizon either.
If they can't support smartphones with 512MB, what about smartphones with 1GB? I have lumia 1320 and I want windows 10 upgrade! Otherwise I already had bad experience with Microsoft and I will change to other ecosystems.
dukaki, 19 Mar 2016Whatever version the android phone runs, it will still get app updates. Currently the lower ve... moreyes. you are right. microsoft is evil. they dont care users who still use old win 8.x devices.
maybe.. microsoft will stop supporting win 10 apps as well by the time win 10.1 released.
"considered" means it will not be updated.
lol. you better switch to ios or android.
