    I agree with you there. It's often best to simply ignore the noise of negativity and simply help people who need help. There is, however, an overwhelming sense of gloom about the place that does make it hard to maintain motivation.

    Yes you are right Pete. Whenever I log on to Windows Mobile Forum, it is only gloom here. Even the trending posts on the home page are also about gloomy windows mobile posts.

    Example below is the "popular discussion" on home page today.

    I hate ads ads ads everywhere in Edge browser. This was never the case in the old browser. If I wanted an ad ridden android experience I would have gotten an android phone. Argh!

    Looks like you have misunderstood, I didn't say one group of users can post and others can't.

    That would be highly illogical .

    I said people who have problems / issues will look for solutions therefore will invariably post about their experience.

    Whereas people who do not have problems / issues will not therefore may not post about their experiences.

    I hope this clarifies what I said :).
    It seems I did misunderstand. All good my friend

    WM10, in it's current state has a lot going for it when you actually think about the short comings of WP8.1. There are plenty, however I won't list these as there is really no point dredging up the past.
    I think that depends on your point of view. For me 8.1 worked. Search worked, my browser actually loaded pages, the photos I took actually reliably uploaded, the phone didn't randomly reboot, I could control updates, the people hub worked purposefully, the tiles actually updated reliably, my e-mail arrived properly, I could actually get the images and attachments reliably, and so on and so forth, it takes FOREVER to "just finishing up" when you're just trying to view photos, you can't see what's changed in an app before you update it, the tiles regularly just "disappear" so you have the background but no visible tiles (and the background "scrolls" as far as the tile depth as if they're there), it doesn't always activate the camera from the dedicated button.... I would go on but frankly, you get the point. I've now owned this device for a few months and it is just as poor as the day I stupidly bought it.

    On 8.1, it would have been nice if... I could upload in the original quality without Wi-Fi with photos, and if the camera was a bit nippier to get on with it... and that my friend was all that was wrong.

    True, it does depend on your point of view and it also depends how you used the phone as many I doubt would have used it intensively for work, personal use and gaming. Then found solutions or workarounds that helped their work flow / make the device work for them. (here's a freebie) For collab work, sharing OneDrive links was much better than sharing attachments .

    I'm not going to dredge up the obvious oversights in WP8.1 since yammering on about it will not change anything for 8.1. If you want to know what I'm referring to, send me a PM and i'll happily point you to an example :).

    The issues you are having on WM10 are the by product of rebooting the O/S once again almost from ground up combined with the new WaaS model.

    However once the ground is steady, WM10 is going to be pretty darn good.

    I got to play with the 950 yesterday properly (which was set up properly) and it was ridiculously snappy. I couldn't even force the darn thing to micro stutter (I got my cousin's brand new S6 edge to micro stutter by simply opening the email app and scrolling up + down horrendously fast - paper tearing, table scratching scribble fast . Plus won the bet that it would be the same on any demo unit - we tested 3 - different carrier outlets / phone shops).

    Oh you can pin different folders... although it is not obvious (Press the hamburger icon, just tap and hold the account / folder in question then tap pin).

    In terms of issues, I didn't find any.

    Once my L920 is fully charged, I'm putting the slow ring insider build on it :).

    In regards to being able to upload original quality over mobile data on wp8.1, I agree it would have been nice to have that option although there are rather obvious draw backs :).

    Finally got to play around with black 950XL yesterday. I want it, damn. Nice fit in my palm, W10M zipped about with apps opening like greased lightning. The only problem is I can't justify getting a upgrade from a barely year old 830. It cost USD720 retail (and no, WPhones never get carrier subsidised here) with no dock freebies. Maybe I'll re-jig my personal budget and reconsider it again a few months down the road. ... sigh...
