    The Win HD LTE is slated for W10M official. It will get the OTA direct from BLU and be independent of the Lumina update schedules.

    What matters is when BLU gets an RTM build and tests it.

    I can't wait. Shame the recovery isn't available to try W10M...

    That list is not worth worrying about. Blu, the manufacturers themselves said that the Win HD LTE will be getting the update. I would think the manufacturer at said company, would have more of a say over a random person. I believe also on their product pages, it says that it will be upgraded to Windows 10 when available. Win HD LTE

    Scroll down to read it for yourself.

    As others in the very thread you linked have pointed out... Those lists are old and contradict current information from Microsoft.

    I'd just like to point out that:
    1. the XML file containing the data that is the basis for this "news" was posted on Microsoft's site for download back on October 23rd.
    2. I noticed that the (BLU) Win HD LTE is "UpgadeState: 3", same as the HTC 8X; meanwhile even today, the Win HD LTE's page on MicrosoftStore advertises "Win HD LTE will be upgradeable to Windows 10 when available."

    So in other words, as usual with Microsoft, wait and see.

    After using windows 10 build .29, I had to roll back to 8.1 .. So sorry to say the feel of windows mobile 10 is nowhere near as good as 8.1 . By the feel i mean general responsiveness and fluidity .. I always felt a gap between a tap and corresponding action. Its simply not in windows phone 8.1. Battery drain ( my main reason to roll back) is simply alarming ... And in general needs alot of polish here and there. I think it would be wise for Microsoft to hold the update until its ready. I was a pro windows mobile 10 guy. But my experience as of yet has been sick.i am really surprised that Microsoft decided to ship 950 with such a buggy build

    ^^ This is the very reason Microsoft isn't releasing W10M until "early" 2016. There are still some bugs to exterminate and Orkin is on vacation. Hold tight fellas, it's coming.

    Roll back to 8.1 using recovery tool and then you get the official win 10. W10M official isn't for insider but people with official updated 8.1 with denim. Its not like off and on u can get out of an insider. You have to use the recovery tool which involves hard reset and flashing and install updated 8.1. You will lose the apps in this process, not sure about the data, depends on how much you backed up.

    Further, even though the insider and the official build is same, you get your software warranty when official builds shut down your device, the same doesn't apply for insider builds. Been an active insider in 8.1 DP, true hardship

    There is no Recovery Tool for BLU phones. Do not get on Insider unless you wish to remain there. You have NO way to revert.

    BLU does not have Denim. Denim is Lumia Firmware and BLU is not a Lumia. BLU Win HD LTE is at 8.1 Update 2 official (OS version 8.10.15137.148). The Firmware revision number is 00150.04717.20001.15008.

    He may be referring to the BLU being on Update 2 vs a 930 on which the user did not see Update 2. My BLU has the new Settings Menu and my 1520 does not.

    Yep, exactly. I actually prefer the old way vs. the Update 2 categorized lists...

    :o Interesting. Can I ask why?

    Trying Lumias that had the first version, made me sad after having searchable categories.

    Yeah, Sure. Some options are simply in categories that differ from where I think they should be categorized...for instance, Brightness I would believe to be a 'personalization', but its in 'system'...'update & backup' category is a system function...but its not under 'system' but instead broken out into its own category.

    Essentially, where I'd expect them to be...isn't where they're at. Since I'm not in their often enough, I find myself hunting for them...the old way, I'd flick up the list and stop it when I saw the option I needed scroll by.

    I also would have put 'personalization' first with accounts in that category, and put the network second...

    In a nutshell, it doesn't make sense to me...again, that's a personal preference so I totally get if they make sense to you...they just don't to me.

    Has anyone yet been able to install Windows 10 yet on their Blu Win HD LTE? I'm in the insider program, and updated to Windows10 on my Lumia 535 without problems, but on my Blu there's no insider update available yet, not even in the fast ring...
