    As heard, google is launching nexus phones later September with Android 6.0 Marshmallow and after that somewhere in October Microsoft is also launching windows 10 mobile.

    So what do you think guys, what will be the best feature of windows 10 mobile where it will overcome Android 6.0 Marshmallow?

    Bagdad Bob, is it you? ;-)

    Is something wrong with what I wrote?
    Does not Microsoft release more apps for Android 6.0 than for W10M?

    As a matter of fact, no. No they don't.

    You're absolutely right; Microsoft releases *better* apps for iOS and Android.

    *yawn*

    Come on now, let's use some logic here. Microsoft's core products for Windows phone are under development for Windows 10 mobile. Because the OS is not done, the apps are buggy and incomplete. This is unavoidable.

    And it's not always the case, Outlook for iOS is terrible for example and Excel on an iPhone is nearly unusable (maybe on a 6+, I haven't used that one). And the Xbox app & Maps app are so much better on Windows mobile... that they don't exist in the others.

    Come on can't we stay on topic people, are we all 5 years old and laughing at each other's moronic childish statements

    I'm excited about Continuum on WP 10. For android 6 a much more polished 64 bit encryption experience should improve user experience.

    Continuum is a huge reason I look forward to Windows 10. The software will come flowing like ambrosia.

    Android 6.0 Marshmallow better not be an embarrassing wreck that makes Donut look premium.

    You're crazy. I have a 6 Plus and multiple Windows Phones sitting on my desk in front of me, Outlook for iPhone is way better than the WP version.

    Come on, "outlook mail & calendar" is a joke. Settings reset at each update (colours, visibility of calendars, signatures in mail, etc.) ; no possibility to block remote internet content. And thanks to UWP, we have the same "features" on PC and mobile. Whilst I agree that W10M isn't out yet, W10 PC has been released end of July. And their mail&calendar app has still major issues or even security flaws, like the aforementioned impossibility to block remote content.

    So agreed partially, but you can't take the mobile OS as an alibi as the PC/tablet versions are now official and yet inferior to their opposite numbers on android and iOS.

    That is nothing than just wishful thinking to see Win10mobile with RTM status in october. Yeah maybe they push it out tho but then it will be a continous construction site with painfully slow updates. Plus there is no officialy statement about october.
    I will go with one of the Nexus we see by the end of this month. Tired of waiting for something that will never be finished.

    Not having a 6 plus on my desk, I'm curious why this is? To me the WM10 Outlook is pretty usable now. I'd like unified inboxes back and as we had that I'd assume we'll get it again, but it all seems quite usable now and more powerful than the older mail client on WP. How is the iOS one better?

    It's not secure and supports only a few email account types. Which literally makes it useless for many people, including me. And yes, I have an iPhone as well.

    The "Hello" unlock function , this is catching up with androids location and camera based unlock features but hopefully will be much better and more reliable......

    The only good feature on windows 10 mobile that we know of is continuum and universal apps. Right now it hurts to say it but mobile is looking pretty barebones and really just refinements of WP 8.1. I'm REALLY hoping the internal version of 10 mobile has some new features that they haven't put on the technical preview yet that they show off on the 6th

    Already has it, I think. My mobile network shows my speed, E, 2G, 3G and 4G. I'm on a 920, in UK. Is that what you meant?

    bought Android phone two weeks ago
    and What I find that Microsoft apps are way better than WP.(specially Outlook)

    I think you should try Android phone first and see MS app.
    Even some Moderators use Android phone to use Microsoft services instead of WP.

    Anyway back to topic

    I am very interested to see which OS is more faster than others in performing task and multi-tasking
    also
    unlocking phone - Finger print scanner vs Hello Windows
    Which OS has better battery life ?

    Can't wait to see
    Nexus 5X vs Lumia 950
    Nexus 6P vs Lumia 950XL
