There are reportedly 60,000 users of the Windows 10 phone preview

Microsoft's Windows Insider program has been pretty successful thus far, but according to a new report only a small percentage of those signed up are currently using the Windows 10 preview for phones. According to Neowin, these figures come with another significant bump in the total number of Insiders.

"According to an internal source who has had a good track record in the past, there are roughly 60,000 devices currently testing Windows 10 for phones. That figure includes Microsoft employees too, which means that the testing base, as of right now for the OS, is quite small."

That's 60,000 out of a now reported 2.8 million total signed up to the Windows Insider program. It's not overly surprising, given the initial list of supported devices. With the Lumia 830 being the 'highest end' phone to be included on the current build, the platform enthusiasts carrying 'flagship' class devices from the past and present are left out right now.

We'd expect to see that number increase pretty sharply once the number of supported phones opens up. And with Windows 10 on the agenda for this weeks upcoming Mobile World Congress, who knows what we might soon see.

  • No rush! I'll just get it when im ready :) that's still a good number of people though and it'll only get larger.
  • ... Just waiting on the 1020
  • Me too
  • Waiting for the 1020 and the bluetooth audio during video playback bug to be fixed (unless it is fixed already).
  • +1020
  • Right? My 1020 feels like a red-headed stepchild.
  • I think we are.
  • My awesome 1020 wants it too... Such an amazing phone! It definitely will get it, right?
  • So do I.
  • Using it as my daily driver on Lumia 635. I'm surprise it's quite stable.
  • same to me... quite stable. only battery increase heavy and buggy brightness. Have it on my 2nd device. Its nice. I think its more usable in case of lagginess on 1GB devices
  • Its stable on some phones and unstable on others. It's working fine on my 630 but on my 730 its riddled with bugs so had to revert back to 8.1. But both phones are dual sim and are having issues with that. Still a long way form being final release.
  • I agree on L730 its more buggy. Display goes off and can't see who is calling or operate the phone. Have to soft reset or click the power button few times. Cannot add apps to existing Live folder. Microphone for new keyboard not available. Cannot browse the SD card within other apps, only device memory is allowed to view.
  • Stable, yes. Although it's lacking a lot of features while adding features. So don't be too bummed about not having it. I love the new voice to text. Cortana has been temporarily downgraded. She can't even find local restaurants or navigate anymore. The Photos app is kind of really awful right now. It's super slow and sometimes even takes 5 minutes to find something that's on the phone. It might work better if the cloud sync was off. Anyway, I love 10 so far.
  • My friend rolled back from it, because it was too laggy. I know it's a preview, but if they want our feedback they're gonna have to make it usable. :D
  • The point is also to report negative issues back, and not just suggestions for features or give a thumbs up on what's working fine.
  • Right, but wouldn't the lag issues be detected and fixed during some internal testing at MS?
    Until they fix the lag, the feedback numbers won't significantly improve.
  • Totally agree, i am using L635, but buggy and lag.
  • I have always enrolled to preview for developers immediately it is made available..this time I want to skip being a beta tester /reason/ I am in love with denim update.. I have never seen my 1520 this stable and fast. Am gonna give my phone a rest
  • Agreed. Same for my 930. It's much more stable than before. Denim has actually significantly increased its battery life. I'll be happily waiting for the public release of Windows 10 for phones.
  • Please, how many hours do you get off your 930 with the denim update?
  • I think you asked the wrong person I don't own a 930, but I can say denim has made the respective devices more efficient
  • The battery life on my 930 seems to be worse, not sure though it is because of Denim,
  • If you have Hey Cortana turned on, that's probably why.
  • I don't have hey Cortana enabled.
  • I don't usually monitor battery use carefully but after job am usually left with 60%.. And I usually charge my phone(1520) before I sleep... In most cases I play games after job to take the power lower before I charge again..
  • Really it doesn't feel that for me since every apps been able to use more resources or it could be the screen brightness profile that they changed either way. Any chance you did a reset after updating?
  • I did NOT hard reset my phone, I don't hard reset my phones I usually have a lot of stuff in my phones that I can't imagine of a factory reset. You need to find out what it consuming your power because am sure it's not denim update
  • +930
  • Still waiting on Lumia 1520
  • Waiting on the 1520....
  • I think the choice to launch the Windows10 preview on primarily low end devices, MOST(not all) of which were likely sold en masse, to price conscious individuals who JUST WANTED AN AFFORDABLE phone and weren't looking in particular for a Windows Phone, has little appeal for most of that demographic who are not likely yearning for the cutting edge updates. The successful sale of budget devices has put Windows phone in the hands of millions. But many of those low end purchasers are not enthusiasts. The initial launch of Win10 preview to that group has left those enthusiasts who would EAGERLY use Windows10 waiting for the partition update to be applied so that the higher end devices could take advantage. I think we'll see a bump once that happens. Just to be clear, I know that there are enthusiasts across the spectrum of devices. Statistically however the MASSES who have grabbed low end devices and are keeping Windows Phone market share relevant, are not statistically the enthusiasts.
  • That's okay though. I think it's great they are making sure it will run on the low end devices first. If they can ensure a great experience on what most people have then I know the flagship I'm saving up for will be overly adequate. I expect this version to be just as if not more efficient as 8.0 has been across the hardware spectrum.
  • Lumia 920 please!
  • I'm surprised the 920 wasn't included in the first run. Alot of 920's out there out of contract, so probably not their main phone.
  • I have 2 920s & was being smug waiting for 10 thinking I'd put it on 1 of them with no risk of disruption. If it was great then I was set. If it wasn't quite ready then I still had my other 920 running fine on 8.1 etc.
    :-) Then it turned out the 920 wasn't supported....so I did the only rational thing and bought a cheap 630! So, I'm using 10 on the 630 without a SIM at the moment. Seems pretty good TBH. Lots of great unsung features in the OS; the amazing calculator for instance. The 630 does feel a bit laggy, but then I've never used one before, so I'm not sure how much of that is down to 10 & how much is the phone. Am thinking of putting a SIM in it for the weekend just to try it out properly. Regarding stability, the only issue I think I've had is when viewing photos in the default app. I've been providing feedback as I've gone along.
  • I purchased my mum a 630 for her birthday a while back. It's obviously much slower to load intensive apps than my 1520, but swiping and tapping around the OS is not noticeably slower.
  • Thanks for the update. Informative Comments like yours, edshred, (& asylumxl) are some of the reasons I'm a member of this site
  • I 2nd this^
  • Thank you for providing feedback. I can't with my 8X but I appreciate those that are able to and are taking the plunge.
  • I got it running on my 920 while the "hack" was there. There's two bugs that bug me, the display brightness isn't accurate on auto like it was before and Word Flow doesn't register sometimes (it sees I'm dragging my finger, but sometimes where I end, it uses it as the first letter). Other than that, it's great and hopefully when it officially releases for the 920, it'll be better too. :)
  • Paltry
  • Yes.... This isn't a whole lot out of 2.8 million.
    ...........
    According to Cortana this is only 2.14%.... Lets see.
  • I'll only test it on the secondary device. If phones allowed dual booting, then I would test it on my primary phone.
  • What duel booting... Na never... :3
  • Htc hd2, not official I admit. But I had the option of windows mobile, android or WP7. Ah the good old days!
  • Yeah, I still play around with my old HD2 once in a while, for nostalgia. Still the best phone I've ever owned.
  • Didn't know there's such a phone from HTC! Seems interesting.
    Gonna check it out!
  • That magic phone that refuses to die.
  • No, he said "dual". I do not think this is a duel, with or without fighting gear ;)
  • Here come complaints about features/lack of features and bugs in Windows 10 for Phones....
  • It does have bugs. But it's beta I get it.
  • 8.1 got times more enthusiasts. Seems that WP lost most enthusiasts last year due to it's politics to be cheapest and slowest.
  • +1
  • That's because PFD is made available to almost all devices whereas WTP is made available to only 6 pathetic devices on launch.
  • I can feel you there, but pathetic devices? XD
  • I think he meant "a pathetic 6 devices"as in the number of devices supported is low.
  • I love the Lumia 730 and 830, they are killer mid-range phones. Gonna upgrade soon to probably 830 from my 520.
  • I signed up, but I'm waiting for my old phone, the Ativ S, to be supported. I'm not putting a beta OS on my new Lumia 830.
  • Would have been 160 000 if they actually got their partition stitching nonsense right beforehand... LoL
  • Care to explain more about this?
  • Look it up,
    .
    Here is something funny..
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z3nXHAQa-gQ
    ..
  • This is some hilarious shit. Had me in tears.
  • LOL, that explains it all.
  • Damnit! Where the hell did you get that from, mate? Had me fallen from the chair... LMFAO!
  • I was in tears the first two times I saw it. I found it in an article from the verge..maybe.
  • Yea... Watch that video, its hilarious, you see the reason Microsoft gave for not releasing Windows 10 to flagship devices like the 1520, 1020 and 930 has to do with how the OS partitions your phone storage upon installation. (personally I think that is not the full story.. But anyhow.. :)
  • Really expect 'em to release Win10 TP for the 1520s, since they are as cheap as the 830s now. If one's broken I will just buy another one easily.
  • I hope they release updates soon. This OS is so buggy but I'm not going to blow a fuse because I know it's beta software. Apps don't open, replying from notifications don't work, slow, and other stuff. #830
  • Just keep providing your feedback to MS. You can roll back to 8.1 if you find 10 unusable.
  • More stable build is needed, like W10 9926.
  • Hope it comes pretty soon, would be interesting getting windows 10 before denim
  • I fear that's gonna happen here too
  • I'm the one of 60k.
  • We are the elite few.
  • I thought it was much less than that! This is good
  • I'll refrain from pointing out the obvious
  • I rolled back to 8.1. Has some nice new features but a lot of bugs. Quiet hours don't work. Microsoft band doesn't work. Very slow photos app. Crashes, lockups. Will update again with next release of more stable.
  • Did you report any of those bugs?
  • How?
  • Using Windows phone recovery tool by Microsoft.
  • Just download Windows Phone Recovery Tool then install it( installation will consume about 160mb of data). Connect ur phone through USB to the pc. Now open the WPRecovery tool, it'll show ur phone model. Click ur phone model. It'll show u d latest firmware for ur phone in ur country. Click it. Ur 8.1 will be downloaded(1.65gb) now.
  • Yes and more.
  • When windows 10 for mobile coming official?
  • Not for awhile
  • Actual rollout might start around September.
  • M8
  • Taking in account the number of phones that are supported by the preview, this number looks quite good to me.
    Plus, this build is not that much significant and can be skipped.
  • It could be better the people who actually know how to pick out the bugs. We all mostly have the flagships. So the 1520, 1020, 930, 925 920, 820 being left out is leaving a huge chuck of people who know what to pay attention too out the loop.
  • So you are saying that people who don't have enough money to buy high end phones or don't have enough benefits such as the contract system to buy high end phones are not capable of testing software and pointing out bugs?
    Is that what you are saying?
  • I believe what Terrence A is saying is that the diehard Windows Phone enthusiasts, who are most likely to follow through with all the bug reporting due to the fact that they actually care about the success of the platform in the long term, are most likely to be carrying flagship phones. Currently no flagship devices can get the Technical Preview. Enthusiasts like myself... I'm waiting for my old phone, the Samsung Ativ S to find its way to the list of supported devices. Don't get butthurt... It's not slam against people with less money.
  • how daddy can not be updated of 830. my 820 running win10
  • Those numbers are sounding fudged, especially with the mention that it includes MS people... Though considering what devices are eligible the number probably isn't massive either.
  • I think it's pretty accurate, since the 730 and 830 are fairly recent devices, and only very few phones are currently eligible.
  • If i could install in my L730 i will install it, but when i open windows insider it say no preview build
  • Open Windows insider app, sign in, then check either day or slow. Follow the instructions then check phone update from the settings. First the phone will install latest update of Lumia Denim, then select slow or fast again from Windows insider app and then check again from phone update. You'll definitely get it then.
  • * fast or slow. I got confused for a second, lol.
  • Don't install on the L730, it's really bug on this device. I have one with the preview.
  • O, I hope for an app screensplit feature like in W8 that would be way too awesome
  • Installed it. Rolled back to 8.1 on the next day. Too buggy, laggy, apps keep crashing with no new features, except for the rearranged system settings. The settings become too small to read. In fact, things become small and thin, such as keyboard. Yuck!
    For those with no chance to install, you are lucky.
  • Shut up. It's alpha software. Plus, you have a choice of not installing it or installing it. If u installed an alpha software, then it's your fault.
  • It's the first TP build and it has so much bugs. So some of users has roll it back to wp 8.1 . May be second TP build will bring more testers.
  • There were some teething problems the first couple days but things stabilized after multiple soft resets. Still get random freezing, jumpy start screen and some apps crashing but most of the time is quite usable. It's preview software so you need to be patient and have realistic expectations on performance.
  • Yes, U r right.
  • Lumia 1320 please...
  • U guys should buy the another(cheap) device if u really wanna play with w10 preview. Don't use your primary phones.
  • i am hoping that those testing are giving MS possitive constructive feedback. And wishing again that MS would do something on the issue of the humburger menu accessibility when using one hand. i myself, i prefer the status quo, (those three dots at the bottom)
  • Positive and constructive can't both be used when referring to feedback for Windows 10 Technical Preview for phone.
  • well i hear your point, i should have said constructive only, 
  • 60K is still boatload of testers. Will be 600K real fast once higher end models are supported.
  • bring us Denim and we'll give Windows 10 a break. Lumia 920
  • Still and still hoping again and again wondering when the denim nor wp10 comes to my device. If you want to increase the number why the update takes time.
  • I actually purchased a Lumia 635 just to test the OS out. While I have yet to run into any major issues, the OS kind of reminds me of early android versions where menus were incomplete or the esthetics clashed from one menu to the next. It's fun to see the OS materialize before my eyes, but I won't put it on my daily driver 920 until it's far more mature. Hopefully by then we will actually have a new flagship available to purchase!
  • Ha! I did the same. I purchsed a 635 from Amazon for $50 to install the preview on and kept my 920 on 8.1.  
  • Looking forward to donate my 1520 to the experiment :)
  • My lumia 925 is waiting..
  • Way too buggy to actually use as your daily driver. I put it on my 830 but just to test. Still use my 930
  • Waiting for Lumia 535
  • No 930 yet
  • used it as a daily driver on my 635, but now i've got the 535
  • I don't have a suitable device to use it on. I'm hoping it will come to the 520 soon as I have one of those as a second device (Audible player - as that app sucks on 8.1)
  • If it brought something mildly different to the table I'd test it but as it now stands I'm skipping.
  • Yay, 60k free beta testers.
  • I wish to help but i only have the L1520. I cant risk it as it is my main phone and only wp.
    I have the sg note as my secondary though.
  • If you got the Denim on your L1520, no need to rush for W10. Enjoy your Denim better, "it gets more better as it gets older". LOL (denim?).
  • Dont have Denim yet in PH.
  • Uh oh. Sad.
  • Yes. So sad. And im drunk.
  • Using as my daily driver (yes there are bugs but no show stoppers and besides that's what the windows feedback app is for), I am suprised some people are talking themselves out of testing. Am looking foward to the next build though and more new features, good so far but they have some tweaking to do.
  • Not everyone has two phones like myself, so I'm not willing to download buggy software, no free tester her MS. I will let everyone throw their phones against the wall in frustration with their buggy phones and wait until the final product is released!
  • you should only join if you want to give feedback to help tweak the OS and to suggest features/improvements its not necessarily for the masses. (misread your comment sorry, thought you had Two phones), I only have one compatible with the W10 preview a Lumia 830 and although it's got a way to go is working well on my phone :)
  • Exactly. "Update at your own risk" is the important message here.
  • Any news on Lumia930 when MS will launch Windows10 TP. I have recently buy 930 and I want to sell it if w10 isn't rolling out in higher end devices
  • It will be released to all high end phones
  • What's the basic reason behind your decision to sell it, bro? I too use a 930, I may help you out.
  • And you would have more if you make it available on other devices
  • Ill wait for bug free n stable version of win10 before updating it..
  • Same here...
  • I tried using it for a day on my 830 and froze on me 4 times. Went back to my 1520.3 for now. :-)
  • I have had it freeze but only a few times in three weeks and days apart a new update Is due this week/ early next week as I understand...
  • Haven't even set to the preview, mine freezes sometimes. Lumia 930 :(
  • Only
  • :) well when testing these things are minor blips, the new update will get this sorted.
  • I would have expected a higher number
  • This should be more than
  • Without Me 59999
  • Is it available for Lumia 930?
  • Not yet.
  • Darn!
  • Waiting for my Lumia 520
  • Waiting for Lumia 920
  • This time I would not download w10 and wait for developer preview or finished Os
  • Waiting
  • Flagship users were excluded and are now very irritated. Another epic error.... Ms want to loose the battle :(
  • On my Lumia 535 please!
  • Still waiting for L930 :(
  • +930
  • Your typical consumer, or those purchasing the low end Lumia phones in other markets are not likely to install the preview. This site, despite its broad scope now is for enthusiasts. The vast majority of those owning any phone are run of the mill consumers, including a large number who have never installed an app, let alone a preview OS.
  • -
    +525
  • I like windows 10 apart from the new style. It looks too much like the competing os. The new style makes the OS feel cramped. Where WP 8 feels roomy and bright, windows 10 feels heavy and archaic. I hope they will change that and stay with the current metro style.
  • I'm still waiting for Denim
  • Hopefully msiscoming with a new update of the windows 10 for phones showing some new features with feedback implemented. A happy 830 user
  • Just release the OS to us we need to test it as well
  • If they officially allow 520 for Testing, then the number will goes to million in a week
  • So are those 60000 testers includes hacking on non available devices like mine or not???
  • I hope support otg USB type B
  • Because not available for my Lumia 530
  • I am one of it, happy with w10tp
  • M nt one of them... Believe me that hurts right here at the bottom of my pectoral muscle :D
  • After Belfiore demoing with 1520 and then 1520 being left out I wont be busy installing preview if/when it will be released. I would usually like to follow the 'beta' from the beginning to spot issues and now as its not possible better just wait RTM.
  • Please for Lumia 535
  • Just for laughs.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z3nXHAQa-gQ&sns=fb
  • You want all windows insiders to download win 10 preview, release it for low end devices asap!
  • First allow people to install W10 on their devices and only then complain about low adoption numbers.
  • I think next up is the S4. A lot of lumia's are powered by one
  • Waiting for it, for my Lumia 520
  • Me too
  • of I talk about windows 10 pcs and laptops im happy that Microsoft has improved a lot now and its very much stable like an original version. dont know about wp10 how they will cope up. windows 10 technical preview as seems ready to be launch officially. hope wp10 becomes like it.
  • Guys do any one know when will do denim update gonna roll out in india...Microsoft said that by the end of Feb they gonna release denim update to all Lumia phones. But I think that they have failed to release that.. Waiting to see update on my L1320...
  • Lumia 520, please!!!
  • Mistakes over mistakes.... Many flagship owners feel joked and are flaming Lumias all around....
    Another opportunity ruined by some marketing monkey at Ms....
  • Ruined by J. Belfiore
  • Marketing ?!
  • Then again, w10 is not ready for premium devices, it's very crude.
  • Unlike other OS ... MS is good in making headlines only I guess.
  • In my opiniom wp10 is trash , looks ugly and 0 New geatures , reinstalled to 8,1 in a few days
  • I will install W10 preview only if OTG supported. Are they gona support USB OTG any way?
  • Since, according to AdDuplex, 0.2% of phones that accessed their ad network were running Windows 10, this means there are at most 30 million Windows Phones in regular use. To put that in perspective, Apple sold 10 million iPhones in one day alonelast year (yeah, it was iPhone 6 launch day but you get the picture).
  • And those were high end devices, and the owners are usually more willing to part with their money. No wonder devs still prefer that platform even if the store is a discoverability nightmare.
  • 60.000 devices but several models are excluded in those numbers. What about them ?
  • Should hear more at MWC I imagine.
  • I'll wait for the official preview for 1020/920
  • My L930 is waiting :)
  • And the rest are 5times more than this!
  • 60k across the globe .... It's a shame for MS.
  • Not really, I highly doubt you understand how o/s development works.
  • I would like to try it on my backup phone, nl925
  • I still use in my 630, looking forward to next update
  • When the 1520 for att get there's
  • That number would double if only they would release it for the older 8xx and 9xx etc etc. My Lumia 820 needs Windows 10, so that I can try it. Then I can decide if my next phone will be this platform or another.. Bit disappointed that MSFT have not moved to take on other devices. Been over 2 weeks since launch.
  • At this phase only one or a handful of models are tested on. Plus it is usually conducted behind closed doors.
  • Waiting for it to come to 920 or 530...
    Doesn't want to use the 1020 to test
  • I'm signed up and waiting for Lumia 920 support.
  • Plz support for L525
  • I´m signed up but i´m in no hurry to get this on my 920. Im hoping WP 10 will be good enough around mid/late Summer. Then i can have some time to play with it and see if it meets my expectations. If it does i´ll wait a couple of months to see if microsoft comes up with a true flagship. I´d like that to hapen since im also planing to buy a new 15inch performance laptop (a freaking good one) before christmas so i got a lot riding on microsoft this year. If W10 for phones sucks ass im gonna buy one of the android flagships (Galaxy S6, LG 3, HTC M9, Sony Z4) or i might even look further into the Xiaomi, Oppo, OnePlus which are making excelent phones at very reasonable prices. Although google is behaving like assholes thowards microsoft, an android phone anda windows pc are still very "compatible". The other option would be a jump into the whole apple ecosystem but thats NOT for me.
  • Only time will tell and if they keep Windows 10 this resource efficient beyond RTM. Then it would be lighting fast on a high spec machine.
  • Waiting on the Lumia 535!
  • +Icon
    I'm happy to wait because I know it will be more stable by the time it's gets to my phone.
  • I like win10, and I'm using as my daily drive albeit do have a a main to fall back on I'd necessary. Can't wait for the next OS update
  • I've been trying to get a second hand 630 for cheap on ebay to check out the preview.... Bloody bidders keep putting £40 to £60 at the last second lol. Not spending more than £20 on a second hand 630.
  • That's sad! Not even 50 percent! :(smh waiting here 1520
  • At least I have denim on my 1520.
  • I think, In March 2nd batch of Phones will support Windows 10 for phones, As below - 520,525,620,820,920,925(mine),1020,1520   Then the Test base will increase in good proportion... 
  • Unfortunately, by the time Win10 does come out to our devices it'll probably be May and we'll all have the new Win10 phone anyways. haha
  • Waiting for 1320....:-(
  • I have a 1020 and 620 waiting to install the Windows 10 preview...
  • ^ yes! I did too with a 635 for $50. It's a tad buggy, but I swap the sim with my 920 when I need a stable phone. Can't believe I'm in such a small group of testers, very cool!
  • I want it on my 1020 and 920. No go yet I guess!
  • Are tyenheating problems gone? that's what made me go back to 8.1
  • I am waiting for 1320 update !!
  • Had it on my Icon for about a week. Just was a battery eater compared to just having Denim. Your background pic doesn't slowly move when you scroll down or up. No cellular toggle, laggy on notification pull down and if you have other apps up when you long press the back button. No battery saver toggle and also the "more tiles" option had ni difference but maybe that was for different resolution model lumias.
  • How to switch on hey cortana my lumia 925 after denim doesnt has a option of hey cortana pls help
  • microsoft, please keep the parallax effect like in wp8.1 or give us the option, at least. i don't like the start screen on wp10! :/
  • Well if they provide this update for 512 ram as well in future like 520,720 etc.. Than numbers will rise faster than ever.. Well waiting when I am gonna check it on 520... Hope I will get it in future...
  • That's because its only available to low end devices!!
  • Running it on my 830 right now and it's slow as shit. You guys are not missing much, and I'm getting ready to roll back if an update doesn't come out soon.
  • Yes it's not optimized yet but the first update should be within a week or two and I think I read the plan is monthly updates until rtm unless I read wrong. It's working well for all the things I use. I am sure the performance issue will be the first thing they tackle.
  • You gentlemen test it carefully and give proper feedbacks to help Microsoft to make it perfect. I will wait for the final release :-)
  • I Will install it on my 1020 Lumia when it will be available.
  • My experience has not been bad at all enjoying the OS .
  • They should get the 530 in on the action then I can but the cheapie at work for a testing bed.
  • Well if your not gona allow your flagship users early access to win 10 phone preiview you should expect low figures, its not a difficult conclusion to get to.
  • Its good to know as a 930 user or a 1520 you cant have a say in the win 10 phone build lol.  The very people microsoft should listen too are all left out on the windows developer 10 preview.
  • Waiting to get it on my HTC one m8!!!
  • Too buggy... I had it installed in my wife 830 and to many bugs
  • I used it for about a week. Then ditched it when I learned that my 635 was no longer supported on the Windows Phone website.
  • Lumia 920 forgotten
  • Bought the 50$ 635 just to try it out. Pretty nice -- it feels slower than 8.1 (8.1 is super smooth). Great features though. The overall effect is beginning to feel more modern but its lacking the universal apps (mail, messaging, xbox, office, etc...). Most that I've been able to try out are the keyboard features, settings reorg, background w/ transparent tile, updated action center (Nice job, not 100%, but close), file explorer (which once it's finished will be FANTASTIC!), Photo collections (incomplete, but the concept is better than original Photos app), Lumia camera app as default, and updated Phone & Alarm apps. The whole makeover with Windows 10 Phone for this Tech Preview is barely 20% complete with a trail of some broken things. I have an IP6 and S5 and am pleasantly suprised with this little guy. Been using it for over a week now as my daily driver and the core functions I use work well (phone calls, speaker phone, nav, onenote, facebook, spotify, messaging, camera, shopping apps). I'm looking forward to the next update! Ordered my tempered glass screen protector and SD card cuz I'm keeping this one.
  • Lumia 1020 please
  • How many of the 2.8M have Windows installed on a PC?
  • I have Lumia 630 but when I press the "Get the Preview Build", it says "No Build" for my phone.
