    Is it a hardware thing? I thought the 930 and 1520 have pretty decent hardware?

    Thanks,

    We don't know. Sounds like a matter of age and wanting to wash one's hands of those phones sooner than later.

    Because they're 3 year old phones and support for them has ended and seized to exist. Sorry for the inconvenience, but remember, on these forms are steps to get the Creator's Update, and any update after.

    According to this, The 1520, 930, Icon, Ativ SE and One M8 have a compatible SoC. Considering the Samsung and HTC never got W10M in the first place, it'll be up to the hacksters as usual to get these fine handsets the love they deserve.

    WP8.1 is about to be EOL and there's an even greater app gap there. Bricking or not, they will be fairly useless soon.

    So it's the hardware on the phone - that's the issue?

    Hardware isn't an issue at all but the duration of support has expired.

    I'm not defending MS here (Because I wish my 1520 can officially get the Creator's Update)
    It's business as usual which is sad.

    official support is one thing, letting one decide if they want to install newer software on their own is another thing. As far as I understand it sounds like the phones will be actively blocked. If that isn't the case then great, insiders can keep throwing whatever they want on it right? Call it the unsupported ring if it makes them feel better!

    I put windows 10 on my lenovo x200t, works fine and I'm under no illusion that someone needs to support it still.

    I have a 635 it has 1.2ghz quad core snapdragon 400 512 mb ram and I can install 14393.953 and it was supposedly would not be possible. It is a slug to say the least on that build, the 10396 build, or whatever, it ran pretty decent.

    But I thought I remember reading that it would not be possible to install. Now I unbranded it (an AT&T) and it is running the T mobile ROM. Maybe that's it.

    I looked at the 930 specs and I would thing it would run fine, but it may need a workaround.

    If the reason is because these phones are three years then MS should not be updating Windows 10 PCs as well because my desktop PC is more than four years.

    It's likely Microsoft trying to get people to buy the newer phones like the HP Elite X3 or 950 series.

    During of support for the 930, 1520 and 830? I thought MS supported the OS. If it can run on the hardware (minimum system requirements) - what is the issue?

    That is what I am not clear about. Basically I am reading MS want to kill of the 930, 1520 and 830 - none of which are made anymore, but still meet the minimum system requirements.

    !520 - awesome phone - I was really hoping there would be a v2 of it!

    I agree with you! I've got Windows 10 running on my old Dell Vostro 1500 - it's 10 years old! It runs fine. I'm not sure when my Dell support ended...the unit came with Windows XP....

    Sad reason. But I wonder why - because they are Nokias? The 830 is not?

    Interesting.
    Why would MS promote a phone by HP?
    The 950 - are they still making them?

    Nope. The manufacturing capacity that Msft purchased from Nokia was idled. Ironically, I think it was then sold to HMD global Oy.

    IMHO, the time for 1020, 1520, Icon/930 and even the underrated 830 as daily drivers waned with 8.1. Sure they run W10M, but now they have been pushed aside. Revert to 8.1 and use them for special purpose.

    I have a 1520 and a 1020 reserved just for camera and travel duty. http://forums.windowscentral.com/gen...-new-post.html

    I'm wondering what will become of the Acer Liquid Jade Primo? Considering that there was never any official path to the Anniversary Update and 1507 will no longer be supported after May 15.

    Apparently Acer chose not to give it the AU so I guess that is end of line too.

    this was the final straw for me, not supporting their own flag ship after a poultry 3 years is the last slap in the face I care to take. Now I'm guessing when is their next reboot and then the one after that and after that and so on. No gestures mobile, 11 months to get a weekly view in calender after it was officially released, 12 months for a linked in box, and nearly 2 years to nearly get skype right and then reboot. Microsft is terrible company to put any faith and trust in. Shame cause if they had supported gestures mobile, if they had kept releasing new flasgships and if they supported those flagships even with all those missing apps and theres loads, I would have stayed on windows 10 mobile, but hell, no more. At least in edge our new tabs wont open to our own default pages, as if we want to browse the way we want. Well done again microsoft for force feeding failed attempt. All I want for chrismas now is android or apple to make serious inroads into pc gameing market and then I can leave microsoft products fully.
