    Here is my question to you, what features would you like seen added to your Lumia phone?

    LAN support that is integrated into File Explorer

    Extensions (ad block) for Microsoft Edge

    Dynamic background colours for icons to keep the same theme

    Have access to remove preinstalled applications

    I miss features that were available on WPh 8.1, like Project My Screen over USB cable, Static IP for WiFi connections, FM radio, and apps like Here+, Here Maps...

    I was never apart of the W8.1M so I'm not sure of the differences between W10M

    The suggestions I made were the features I would have like onto the Lumia phone, I was just curious what other people wanted

    Well, I mentioned mine...

    It is very sad to watch how is MS dropping good features and apps that existed in previous OS versions. For me that is enough to get an android phone. In spite of, in my opinion, android being synonym for chaos, it will be much less painful to get used to it than to stay with W10M and see it regress instead of progress.

    I was there for W8.1m and W10 is the better OS hands down.

    The loss of an FM radio does not make it inferior. Actually I may have abandoned Windows Mobile, had W10M not been around the corner! It improved on the in built browser, the interface became much more intuitive and modern.

    An FM Radio can be added back in the future, but just like on PC Windows 10 is definitely much better than previous OSs. Just because you are not entirely happy, does not make the other OSs comparable.

    ^ and just because you are happy with W10M doesn't mean it's better than WP8.1 either.

    W10M is a mixed bag. There are areas where W10M is objectively worse, like UI consistency, performance and stability, and there are areas where it's objectively better, like UI information density or the rate at which the OS is updated.

    There are some areas which are largely just subjective opinion. For example, you think the UI is more intuitive and modern. I think the W10M UI is an innovation free Android look-a-like that is less efficient to use and far less fluid than its predecessors.

    I think both favorable and unfavorable views are valid. It depends on what each of us values in a phone and how we use them.

    But loss of "Project My Screen over USB cable", "Static IP for WiFi connections", and "Here+/ Here Maps" definitely does make it inferior, IMHO of course.

    The only thing I really miss from the L920 is gestures - flip to silent/speaker seems like a basic feature that all phones should have, but being able to answer without touching any buttons was really awesome - I guess its hard to explain if you never use this feature, but I found it really useful.

    I think we REALLY need 'night mode' like the iPhone has. I find the Lumia 950 screen to be quite bright even if turned down.

    I think you can still use Project my Screen, it worked last time I tried it on W10M anyway.

    I'm fine with the Microsoft Maps app personally, but Here+ is more of an app issue if anything now, Microsoft don't own it so it can't ever be a missing "feature" just a missing App

    I cannot use Project my Screen over USB on my L950.
    For Here+ i stated "and apps like Here+, Here Maps...", so no need to mix them with features...

    Btw, Google and Apple also don't own Here Navigation but their phones can still use this (for me the best) navigation...

    The biggest missing feature for me is "Extensions (ad block) for Microsoft Edge"

    You can actually still do that with Windows 10 mobile - done it with my Lumia 640 XL upgraded to Windows 10 Mobile quite a few times. I've just tried it with my 950 and it worked (there was some strange behaviour of the tiles on the start screen at beginning, but then it worked normally).

    It works on my 950 but whats the point of it, the phone screen is on anyway, why project and have phone physically on too? In continuum for example you can turn the phone screen OFF and still work on the big screen.

    If you don't see the point it does not mean that others do see it and use it.

    I use it to check all my pictures and video on a MUCH BIGGER screen before saving them or deleting the ones that don't satisfy me.

    I don't use those features, apart from Here Maps and I find the current Maps to be similar actually.

    So in the areas that I actually use...yes Windows 10 is better! I would probably have left Windows Mobile, if Windows 10 had not come out.

    W10 is the best OS Windows has created on both PC and Mobile IMO

    and I find it strange (On PC and Mobile), how people always have a nostalgic recall of the strengths of previous OS, without remembering their flaws!

    For example on Mobile, I remember quite clearly that 8 and 8.1 had terrible browsers (Explorer), while I would not nominate Edge for awards, it is much better than its predecessor. Explorer was very buggy and just wouldn't work properly.

    Same thing goes for PC, where everyone seems to remember only the good things about W7 or XP etc. If you look at things without any biases, W10 is Microsoft's best work on both platforms.

    W10 is not perfect, but the solution is to improve, NOT to think that going a step backward is the solution. Anything you miss on the previous OS, lets hope it can be implemented in W10. There are things I hate about W10...like forced updates and privacy issues, but the strength of its UI, its overall stability and consistency...is greater than anything I ever experienced in Microsoft before. And I have been using Microsoft OS for almost my entire life!

    I don't want Windows Phones to succeed because of some nolstalgia. I have only been using Windows Phones for about a year (Maybe a year and a half), the reason I love Windows Phones is largely because of PC and W10....I believe Microsoft has the best OS in the world and that should be available on all platforms! It should be in Car navigation systems, it should be in fridges, it should be everywhere...if it were up to me.

    A lot of people think of W10 as a poor competitor in mobile, but for me....without Windows, I am only settling....for something that I don't even want. Apple's philosophy about software and hardware is inherently flawed IMO, and Android has never wowed me....so without Windows OS, it isn't just another Blackberry or Nokia losing prominence, for me....it is like I don't even have ANY option in the mobile sphere.

    I hope Windows Mobile does not die, because if it does...so too will my interest in Mobile Phones. The great thing about Windows 10 is that it is a legacy. Unlike other OS in the mobile sphere, this is an OS that has been decades in the making. The UI is not natural to use because of some dumb luck, it is natural to use...because Microsoft spent decades cultivating Windows OS. There is NO alternative to Microsoft and that is what people need to realize! Windows Mobile is truly embedded in the Windows ecosystem that began in 1975, iOS is NOT a true synthesis of Mac OS, and Android well it is just a random OS that has been floating around.

    So let us support its growth and evolution....and not look backwards. Lets call a Vista a Vista, but lets respect a W10 when we see one.
