In MY experience, I've never spent more than 45-60 minutes to set up a new Windows phone from a backup. That includes 640s and other low end phones. I used to dread hard resets but this Idol rips through the process in well under an hour with updates and all. Obviously your mileage has indeed varied.That hasn't been anywhere near MY experience unless we're talking about the BlackBerry Playbook :eck: Do have a few Android/iOS devices with 1GB (or less) of RAM with applying updates/updating apps being a far different outcome for me over WP/WM, less time and the least amount of user input.
Updates 2 apps! My Android/iOS devices can have 5 apps updated in the time it takes just to initiate the process on WP/WM, seriously it's pathetic. If it has come down to needing a higher-end CPU and more ram to accomplish this feat alone then something ain't right here.
I'm fully aware something less powerful will struggle more than the higher end, but if I'm seeing similar traits playing out on a W10 PC w/i7/8GB RAM/SSD then something tells me MS got things a little askew, on both mobile and PC, as to the proper way to implement updates... Guess though in this instance, since we got the upgrade to W10 for free, we get what we DIDN'T pay for, here too. :winktongue:
