    The UI is good bt theres nothing much tht we never seen before except the background and transperent tiles... For the action center i was looking foward to see it transperent rather than a dark or light back ground...settings look very good and has i cons as well. Microsoft did a wonderful job on this project

    I just want interactive live tile as i was expecting, if i got that then i would be bit happy!
    Live tiles are not widgets, stop asking for this. They are live because they give you live information pertaining to the app, and the only action they should do is take you to that information (which in my opinion is the feature you should be asking for, MSN news for example shows you an article, but takes you to the landing page when you tap the tile, not the article itself). That's it, no interactive, you have other ways to do the things you probably want to do, and they are more efficient.

    Windows 10 for mobile announcements was pretty disappointing. It just seemed like an afterthought compared to the attention to detail Microsoft has put for the desktop version. Hopefully this changes before the release date of the OS.

    So what's so wrong about wanting interactive live tiles? It would be way more efficient to use interactive live tiles than having to open the app to do everything.

    Why should they stop? Microsoft wanted to make live tiles interactive with the mixview concept. Both customers and Microsoft have shown interest in this so there is a big chance of it happening.

    windows phone 10 will be arrives soon, and i'm sure every windows user (phone, tablet, pc etc) can't wait this moment, and i'm pretty sure, all of you really expecting a massive changes in windows phone 10. Yeah! so do i. I divided the topic into 5 point, which is what i really expecting there is a big changes like the user interface, additional tools and many more. So let's get into it.

    1) Store.
    I really looking forward on windows phone 10 store. I wonder how does it will look like. I hope they change the user interface, make it better as well as put some trailer or video for every app like the one in android. I'm sure it will be totally amazing, i mean we can just preview the app before we get downloaded. Other than that, it is vital to have user account in store, which mean it will recorded all the user's activities and so forth. I do hope Microsoft would concerned about wp store. It looks so simple and little bit pathetic, compared to ios/android in which it looks so attracted.

    2) Tiles
    There's a lot of windows phone 10 concept that i had watched on YouTube or any website. Most of theirs concept story come out with the new tiles size such as, we already experienced a small, standard, and large. But a new tiles size would probably be like a long square (not sure if it true) like the one in windows 8.1. I hope there's a new tiles size though.

    3) xbox music
    We experienced a lot of changes of xbox music since wp 8 to 8.1, like the missing of live tiles. I have no idea what to expect a new features on xbox music, but this is what i really hope it would be: 1) xbox music should have user account. 2) xbox music should have xbox music store in which user can purchase or download music. 3) please change the UI of xbox music like walkman xperia. Walkman xperia is one of the UI of music app. i'm so envy toward xperia user. I do hope in windows phone 10, microsoft would change the xbox music to be more powerful and amazing app ever! Note* the account should put on the left screen. User can just swipe out the account on their left screen.

    4) rotate screen
    I've been asking a lot of people, can we rotate screen on start screen? i mean, will start screen rotate too? or it will just stay still like the original? I hope it can rotate, because it will make screen look even bigger, than vertical.

    5) app
    You may asking people around ya about wp app, and they will reply you wp app are a bit far behind compare to android and ios. I really hope microsoft would collaborate with android and ios in order to standardized the app that available in android/ios would available in windows phone too. pleasee.

    So, i really hope windows phone 10 can be so much better than wp 8.1, and i hope too there's a massive changes on wp 10. thank you

    I know all of us Microsoft fans would like to see the phone market share increase with the release of Windows 10, but I believe its something that won't ever happen. I say this because people are stuck in the OS that they are already using and don't care enough to move away from IPhones or Androids to try something new and once you pay alot of money for apps and then have to pay again for the apps once you move over it's not worth it. Windows 10 percentage won't grow much in my opinion.

    I can't remember ever disagreeing with you rocky! ;-)

    I'm definitely on board with that! You're welcome to use and improve whatever parts of the post that you find useful. I'll gladly help out too if you want. Just give me a shout.
    I don't agree. No!

    In that case another group of moderators, ambassadors, famous personalities like the pope and King Jong Un, should be formed to lobby in support of these good changes that Microsoft is implementing.

    I'm part of this community, don't try to be my voice and say things I don't agree.
    See, this is the beauty about this community. We have those veterans who still remember how magnificent "The gutter" was in its time. We have those who still remember how Windows Phone promised "Glance and go OS". Then there are those who never heard of Metro UI and there are those who think Modern UI is a copycat of Material Design.

    I think if those who disagree with say something popular we pick up on various boards of this forum and put it as a poll - can always vote as "I disagree" and then ONLY after our community has spoken, we decide to get it trending on social media and on uservoice to bag the votes (or not).

    This will be helpful in two ways. One - new ideas to make Windows 10 better for all. Two - we can discuss. You can't do that on uservoice. You just add idea and people add comments that are not a dialogue. Here we can discuss an idea and then as a community decide to push it forward or bury it.

    Of course, I won't be the voice of anyone. "The voice" will be votes on these boards, discussions as well as Microsofties that have joined us recently on Windows Central.

    BTW, what do you like so much about hamburger menus?

    My honest feeling is that windows 10 is far from finished for final release. A lot of work needs to be done. Some features need more refinement, more relevant features need to be shown or added, a lot has still to be done to get consistency in design, use and ergonmical use of apps and design, and certain features (in my opinion absolutely) need to be get rid off or polished away.

    I really like hamburgers, but beyond that, I was asking for this change since before the event, the adoption of the UI elements of the successful mobile platforms, in particular Android, and the consistency of the UI through all the Windows devices. So, I'm happy with the changes.

    I think the purists fans should wait for the insider preview and experiment with the software, only after that the feedback will be taken more seriously.

    Agreed. Back in the WP7 days there were enough problems with IOS and Android to have a chance. But MS has spent the last 5 years unifying their platform instead of making the best mobile OS, and now it is too late.

    As long as you have money, it's never too late. It just takes far more effort and luck to make a dent in the market. Ten years ago Apple was nothing. Things change...

    The mobile market is totally different today. The only way in would be to have a revolutionary advantage (like Apple had then with their finger-friendly UI and simple operation). Today, minor UX differences in the app launcher just aren't going to make people switch. Then you add the lack of buzz and apps, and it makes it even less likely.
    MS is spending a lot of money, but they don't even seem to be taking mobile seriously. How can it be that their services are all focused on the US, and yet they have almost no retail presence here? If I want a new Windows Phone in the US I have to accept a low-end prepaid or buy grey-market from a camera store or look on eBay or pay double what other countries do to buy it direct from MS ($500 for L830 that won't even do LTE on my carrier). That is ridiculous.

    I found it interesting that the new UI ditched Metro with the exception of live tiles. It looks a lot closer to Google's Material Design, which I think is good. The best Metro has ever looked was in the old Zune desktop app. Everywhere else it looks a bit too spartan for my tastes.

    That said, the rest of the demonstration just looked like a .1 increment rather than what I'd expect from a full version upgrade.

    My biggest concern is with the carriers in the US. Specifically, Verizon (which I'm on). They've treated Windows Phones pretty poorly. They're currently not selling the Lumias or HTC models, and they've been painfully slow with the 8.1 update. 8X users still haven't received it through normal channels.

    I love the Windows Phone platform, but if they can't maintain a variety of devices or quicken the updates with Verizon, then it's really all for not. I'm actually going to jump ship to Android specifically because of those reasons. I don't want to, but I don't live in an area that has good coverage by anyone but Verizon, and I'm tired of getting the short end of the stick from them because I prefer a less popular platform. I honestly hope that W10 phones take off, and that when I'm due for a new phone in 2017 or so the platform's ecosystem is a lot more robust and stable. I will definitely come back if there's a future in Windows Phone.

    I find it highly amusing that some people are acting like what was unveiled is the final RTMed product...

    The official launch for Windows 10 is months away and things could change drastically for the better (or worse) between now and then.

    Personally I am liking what I am seeing and finally MS have confirmed what approach they are taking - "Windows Best", so people need to understand a finely tuned product takes time to be developed.. as the saying goes "Rome wasn't build in a day".

    As long they remain true to that philosophy I am happy to wait.

    I'm happy to wait by going to a better phone than what I'm currently using in the interim. And, again, in my particular case, my concern is more with how Verizon will treat Windows 10 Phones than with what Microsoft is doing on their end.

    Yes, and so is almost every other part of the consumer electronics market. Seven years earlier it was completely different again, and seven years from now it won't look at all as it does today. Like I said, things change. In a market that is so volatile and exposed to innovation and change, as long as you have money, anything is possible. That's the point.
    I agree with all your other points.

    I tried WP8 with the L930. Enjoyed the experience at the time, prior to iOS 8.

    The problem I had was a) camera was too slow and too fiddly to take good photos in my experience. - I want a super fast camera that takes great pics and the iPhone 6 does that
    B) apps. I'm sorry but there just isn't the same app ecosystem on WP than android let alone iOS which is the best.

    As good as W10 looks and as functional as it gets it doesn't matter to the masses because of your key app isn't there, or isn't updated then what's the point?

    Xbox gaming on this is cool but again most mobile games are not Xbox style and Windows misses out.

    Until the situation is fixed, I don't see that happening, then MSFT will have a very hard time imo

    I want it to succeed as I dislike android but it does not have the polish of iOS and the apps. Case in point monument valley which is a gorgeous game, fantastical brilliant calendar app and many many more

    This is actually one of my biggest disappointments with the WP platform. It's completely inexcusable that the only platform that has Xbox Live isn't the leading mobile game platform. It is such a wasted opportunity.

    Yeah totally agree. I love my XB1 and its crazy that they did not capitalise on their existing gaming platform. I also believe they should've done a portable gaming device but that's neither here or there

    You can't really come to a conclusion based merely upon what was displayed on the screen that day during the Win 10 event. That was just a part of "sneak-peek" you can say. Hopefully they will add more features to the device when the final software is out and later we will obviously receive more updates.
    All I can say is, lets wait till the preview is out.
    Cant wait for the first week of Feb :)
