Shaun Moroz, 01 Nov 2016The phone looks very nice and has great specifications, but no phone powered by Windows 10 Mob... moreIt it worst... look on Alcatel's Idol 4S specs, LTE bands only 2,4 and 12. If we will compare this phone with ZTE Axon 7, the last one has better display, 2SIMs, better battery, batter sound and better price ($399)! And, has Android 6.0.1 from the box.
AnonD-446902, 01 Nov 2016For those are saying the OS won't receive support. The wp used to update once or twice a month... moreCorrect dude, it will be laggy over a year. I've seen the majority of android devices only get double updates after that you need to buy a new one. If you buy running with kitkat max update mostly to marshmallow, only a few (flagship) will get nougat. We directed to become consumerist people
The phone looks very nice and has great specifications, but no phone powered by Windows 10 Mobile is worth $470. Maybe $300, maybe. Windows 10 Mobile looks nice, but it isn't polished, and the Microsoft Store is... well, let's not talk about that.
May Be Widows Phones Market 1% or 1.5%......... But take example of android galaxy s5 which is best selling phone now u buy @10k (150$) Newly which was launched @51k and in just one year more than half price drop................ And after 2 years u can see those who purchased @50k crying like a baby same will happen with S7 users they will also cry........ Smart Phone market always come with high price starting only after months they decrease price (Whether it is android, IOS or Windos)............ Some will say that IOS or Windows have lack of applications but ur android phone is coming with 1tb Memory? 16 gb enough for u ? 32 gb enough for u? Why u buy android phone if u can't directly download all applications to SD card ? U have many choices in android but i never find a single person who even use 5% of applications........ In my galaxy S3 only 50 applications which i downloaded which is less than my windows phone 300 applications......Windows 4 lakhs applications more than enough for normal users...... Android have more than 1 million applications most applications waste... Quantity doesn't mean it is better than quality :)
AJ_74, 01 Nov 2016You're as delusional as Microsoft. Windows 10M market share is effectively zero not because of... moreThe UI is what makes windows 10 so awesome. See again, you are just ignorant and assume things. The customization they added allows for icons or anything.
Quick example with nothing but going to personlization area. http://i.imgur.com/nqt1bCw.png
Anyways, there's soo much you can do. And I agree right now the features aren't there. They started all over and a lot of things that were there are just getting put back in and new are being added.
Continuum is actually pretty cool but right now it's not as close to the Desktop as it can be. The newest release they showed off at ignite is like desktop with windows and the UI translates over better. The w32 executable apps will eventually be translated over to UWP. It's just an API that is growing in features and will be taking advantage of newer hardware which developers will want to do. And just like w32 exes you can host them on websites and wherever.
Again that's why I mentioned it's for the fans as it's not quite where MS wants it to be. MS knows this too that's why they sort of fell back on pushing hardware and marketing.
AJ_74, 01 Nov 2016Unfortunately for MS, 99% of smartphone users worldwide disagree with you. I know a lot of android users that would go over to windows 10 mobile if it had all the apps. It wouldn't gain insane shares but even when it wasn't as great as an OS at windows 8.1 it still had shares that overtook ios in some countries like Italy, Germany, etc. But back then it had more hardware and availability.
Also windows 10 mobile isn't really ready yet. It may be better than say 8.1 and the other os's but it's not as stable as a result of starting fresh. I don't have issues but I read about a lot of people having them.
Most people that give it an honest try and realize the power do end up liking it. Whether you want tiles, icons, pictures, anything you can customize the heck out of it right out of the box.
Why is the Win10 version with SD820 not specifically listed on this website
Please tell me that Alcatel will release a android version of this phone so I can use it for vr as well
I'm actually kinda of excited for this one, I've yet to see such an affordable Windows 10 handset with a Snap 820

Now, mr Troll, give me a link, where MS officially declares 'ending' Win 10 Mobile'.

Check this out my dear and tell me your opinion

Windows 10M market share is effectively zero not because of a lack of compelling hardware, but because W10M offers an inferior user experience compared to Android and iOS.
They're still using the same terribe Metro UI they cribbed from the ZUNE HD, and forcing developers to integrate it into their apps (gee, I wonder why they have no apps?)
The market has flatly rejected live tiles on every Windows platform that's used them (mobile/tablet/PC), yet they continue to push them as the front-end interface in every Windows mobile platform.
Continuum is a complete joke. "Hey, remember that Windows RT thing everyone hated on tablet? Let's use it on mobile!"
Fucking genius, Microsoft. Imagine the surprise of the ignoramus who tries to install Intuit Quickbooks on his Continuum-connected smartphone so he can be "productive".
Now they're pushing the all new VR-capable Windows 10M. Wait, you mean there's a third-party app on the WM store that does something relevant? No way...
For those are saying the OS won't receive support. The wp used to update once or twice a month. What about 99% of androids devices?
KMB877, 01 Nov 2016Just can't believe this.

w10m is the best OS just lacks the apps. So while MS builds out their windows 10 ecosystem through initiatives like VR/studio/etc.. It will be in the dark for a while. I use my iphone 6 if I ever want to try a game not on w10m. I use my asus zenfone 2 android phone if I ever need a coffee coaster.
