    They used to be. It was one of Windows phones defining features. On WP 7&8 it was as smooth as butter, very fast and fluid and all without big ram or processors. Now its more like Android used to be ie laggy, buggy and a resource hog

    Only if you drop it in grease. 😁
    Only kidding. I've only had slow down issues with devices that I've upgraded from WP8.1 to W10M. Also, when the 950s were released, I experienced some sluggishness, but my most recent 950XL ran super slick 90% of the time.

    Odd to hear a complaint about this. Most people normally find Windows Mobile to be smooth, so maybe it's a faulty build you're on?

    I'd get me a L650 if it had 3GB of RAM in there.
    Firm believer in hardware needs to be overkill to run the OS.

    Are they genuine or brand new? Have you been visiting or downloading rogue things?

    The build um on is not an insider build its new out of the box
    Have they been updated to the latest OTA official software version?

    I wouldn't say no to a better processor or more RAM on my Lumia 650. Still, it's been smooth so far but this is really a YMMV kind of situation.

    Hi there,

    I've moved your thread to the Microsoft Lumia 650 forum, since a question about how well a particular device is optimised for Windows 10 Mobile is out of the scope of the Ask Dan forum.

    Anyone who's been on WP since WP7 knows the OS is not nearly as smooth and responsive as it used to be. I think this comes down to quite a few things:

    1. Segmentation - there are so many different phones and hardware configurations that I am guessing this had to affect the fluidity of the OS.
    2. Windows 10 Mobile was designed to work on higher end phones. Yes, I know you can put it on older phones (officially and not officially) but it's pretty apparent that this is an OS that is designed to run on Lumia 950-ish and higher hardware.
    3. You are not really running a true mobile OS like WP7-8 were. This is both good and bad in that it allows additional functionality (for the most part) but hindered performance.

    We are in a rough patch for Windows Mobile (at least in my opinion) where they are trying to introduce new features into a mobile operating system with not much new hardware to keep up with it.

    Not to mention, the Lumia 650 is, arguably, a poorer performing phone than the 640.

    To answer your question as to whether or not W10M will ever be as fluid as WP7-8 were, definitely not. I don't really think it needs to be as fluid as it once was but I hope that as new hardware is introduced it will be on par with iOS and Android.

    I'm guessing the smoothness problem going from WP7 to W10M is due to WP7 having "native" C++ based UI while W10M they moved to C#/.NET based crap.

    I have a lumia 950 and it was a bit slow out of the box, but once all the apps and the OS have been updated to the latest version, it was (is) fine. Just get everything updated.

    I feel Windows 10 Mobile is adequately fast enough.

    Facebook and Messenger gives it a bad rep though. I have observed many people saying W10M is slow based on the Facebook and Messenger app which is sad.
