Windows does have poorer battery life than Macs, but for cost-conscious consumers, they can buy an $800 XPS 13 and get a more powerful OS and better battery life, versus a larger, much more expensive MacBook Air. Obviously, if battery life or trendiness are your main concerns, and you don't mind spending significantly more, Macs are the way to go for notebooks.

Personally, I appreciate the Windows ecosystem, and that I can customize it to a greater degree than a Mac. That said right now price is the only thing keeping me from getting a Mac as a secondary device, I just can't justify spending that much that could go to something I would enjoy more.

Does the Swype function work in the store and on edge for u guys ? it does work for me in other apps and messgeing except those two so I am wondering is it happening with me only

I know sometimes Windows 10 store shows odd errors like Chronology cannot be downloaded because my phone Lumia 930 doesn't support 720p or higher display????, well to cut long story short maybe the app doesn't support the OS coz even when i downloaded the game, it refuses to go beyond the mechanical spinning wheel to denote its loading.

Same here mate! Autocorrect in wp8.1 was just something else. With w10m after I send something I have to write something again to correct a mistake from the previous text. Such a pain!

Lumia 640 IS 5 inches large... how come it doesnt have those features? :/ probably have to be larger than 5, not 5

Nice tips for WP81 users as well since almost all of them work there too. I didn't know tip 2 still works in W10M, you need to start swyping quickly to make it work, very useful tip! Tip 1 is an option at keyboard language level (since WP81 or before).

That is true - to help speed up typing this should be:

12 Swype
13 Text Suggestion

11 won't work in most languages.
And how about fixing the (missing) auto-space after common words when using text prediction, like "the", "and", etc.
And how about fixing the quotation marks function, so it'll only negate the auto-space after the second quotation mark, not the first as well.

You're right they are not comparable, The 950xl is a small computer the iphone and Note 5 are giant toys. As for the Note 5 security Android has more holes than a string vest...

Taping and holding the top row keys works on my 640, but just as good as #2 which doesn't work on my 640.

Microsoft could have multiple groups working on various HoloLens technologies. There is no point in continuing with a technology that another group may have improved upon.

Do you think maybe they could team up with Adobe and have Adobe go back to releasing MSI inatller/update packages for us network admins that have to make sure their security-challenged FlashPlayer software is updated every 3 weeks on dozens to hundreds of computers?  Jeesh.

At what point can we tell this non-security friendly, non-buisness friendly, prima donna of a software campany to take a hike?

MS should be partnering with another party that might acxtually appreciate the opprotunity to grow into an energing market.

I can't move the keypad to left right or top, using L830. Am i doing anything wrong. I have not that setting either. Please suggest

Same thing here  on my 640. They say it works with all 5'+ displays, but yet, i can't get it done, neither do i can resize the keyboard by holding it.

Probably black friday/cyber monday pricing.  I went ahead and grabbed it because I enjoy Hitman but wish this had achievements too.

I want the option to move the mic icon to the right side. I hold the phone in my right hand and my thumb can't reach across my 1520 screen to use it one handed.

Well, depending on what you mean by that, you may be disappointed. It's somewhat like 8.1, but they removed most of the touch-friendliness.

Could have made a Video as well to demonstrate the tips. That would be really helpful.

Portuguese BR doesn't have the microphone... When I switch to US-ENG and it's on Bluetooth of my car and try the microphone it says: "Calling Cortana". Someone without Cortana can confirm that you need her to have this feature?

Oh, it's just software that Microsoft doesn't own and needs to have an agreement with the music labels, movie studios, and app developers for every country to distribute that content. And if a developer of one of those apps didn't sell in a specific country, or didn't localize into every language in the EU then people would be screaming that Microsoft doesn't cater to you. And of course it is perfectly fine if you get a deal, even if it is hardware, that other countries don't get because you are special, you live in the EU. You must be able to get everything that the entire world gets, but when it goes the other way then other countries don't deserve your deals.

And yes, you are whining.


I'm guessing it depends on screen size, my 640 doesn't have those features either.

Changing the size of the UI might make them show up as well.
