    Well its too early to say because currently there are technical issues which i think both blu and microsoft are trying to solve this problem.Did you run upgrade advisor app? i did it and currently it says that it is not available and they are determining this issue. So let's hope for the best.I think they will give the upgrade since win hd lte is has latest hardware.

    It is quite strange and I feel frustrated and let down by MS. Why X150E was ruled out after promising the upgrade? What is the difference from X150Q? I can see that 150E is dual sim and may be the LTE support bands are different.
    Amazon India is still showing it as up-gradable to Windows 10.


    I must also add that I bought this HD LTE in last week of Jan. I was looking for Lumia 640 but found that it is not available online (did not check with any retail shops for old stocks). Later I learned that MS withdrew it while launching L550. I was definitely looking for Windows 10 but did not want 550 due to its low end h/w spec. Then looking for alternatives, I came across this Blu Win HD LTE (I had not even heard about Blu before) and found the h/w to be amazing and it was up-gradable to W10. So I bought it without a second thought even though I had read about screen issues.

    Now all kinds of thoughts flash through my mind - no universal apps, no apps that are released only for W10, no direct speech to text in apps, switchable keyboard layout.... oh man..... really pissed off. won't recommend windows phone to my friend who is planning to buy new phone (I was one of the windows phone defenders (out of a total of 2) in my office. the other has 640)
    The only difference is that the size of the recovery image file for both x150q and x150e. I have both the recovery image files. x150q is about 1.67gb which is downloaded via WDRT(didn't know that it was for US variant.) The other is x150e which is about 1.76gb. I believe somehow Blu skipped the E version for no reason. Let's hope they provide necessary firmware and recovery file image to MS.

    After a bit of playing with the firmwares (cross flashing) and as confirmed by another member in another thread about x150e, the difference between x150e and x150q appears to be in the device firmware (I suppose they are using different radio chips), however remembering the amount of time it took MS from the release of x150q image to WDRT and then to the release of w10m on it, I think that w10m won't happen on x150e by the end of March.

    x150q appears to be running lower firmware version, while x150e runs on a newer fw version, so from the development perspective it looks alright, however if you look into WDRT for all the blu models it lists the variant except for WIN HD LTE, that might lead to a suggestion that BLU is trying to join up the firmwares (as can be recalled from older registry hacks, even unsupported devices could run w10m and MS did warn that it might cause the device to end up in a non working state, however it worked and it suggests that correct drivers were included for all the lumias, thus not bricking the phones), so IMO there will be a firmware upgrade from BLU (maybe they'll even fix some bugs like the touchscreen issue) and because of that it takes more amount o time to release it to the worldwide audience and BLU is simply following One-Some-Many update approach (issues in a specific area are better than worldwide) as MS did with all the releases where one means internal testing, some - release to a group of users i.e. US variant (or Insider program from MS perspective), and then worldwide upgrade should follow and possibly with the firmware upgrade which could also explain technical issues between MS and BLU, if my assumptions are correct x150q should get fw upgrade before we will see w10m on x150e, however it should be way more stable than what x150q have now.

    I think win 10 for global variant will come after several days like factory image. Maybe Blu likes to soft release update in American market before releasing for global variant.
    Unfortunately BLU is not in charge of this update. It is created and delivered by MS.

    if BLU is not in charge to updating, why they feel secure to advertise this un-correct information? If you are able to do this, then publicize it.
    If not, please...be correct, and cancel this wrong message (= publicity in order to sell more...)

    Hey...that's awesome news! I can say that the US version has some stability issues as well. I wonder if its because of the language localization issues other phones are having...

    Let's hope for the best. I called on blu india helpine today and what they replied that their techincal support team is currently with MS through Microsoft timeline. I think they are already testing insider builds and hopefully solving the bugs. Currently US model has some stability issues.Who knows we might even gets a better smooth stable build. And by the way REDSTONE 1 build is on the way to the win 8.1 devices. We might get RS builds with tone of features. So let's wait and watch.

    I've also heard that Blu is currently working on a solution.
    There are still some issues to resolve. Earliest date to be the end of March.
    I'd rather wait and have since then a stable system.
    The same should also apply to the EU version of the Blu Win JR LTE.

    That is great...I also spoke to customer care representative (BLU India) and he said that the topic is under discussion with Microsoft and you will definitely get the promised update.

    He was not confirmed but anticipated it at month's end or first week of April. So fingers crossed :)

    Well that's the only rumour. Take it as a grain of salt. It's not confirmed yet. Only win 10 upgrade advisor app can tell the truth. I think they are working with MS.

    Good news! Blu confirmed that Both Blu win HD lte and jr lte of Europe version are eligible for windows 10 upgrade. Currently Blu win HD (non lte) is only eligible for upgrade. Whereas Blu win HD lte U S has many bug fixes and they are solving these while e version update is on hold.

    Hello,
    is meant the EU version of the smartphone.
    The upgrade comes for all X150e, not only in Europe.
    and the Blu Win JR LTE Eu version has more memory than the US version.
