    Maybe, just maybe, this is occurring due to the fact that the Mobile version of the OS is now being aimed at the enterprise market? If I used them in the business world, which I actually do, what is left is all that's needed. All 14 devices run the bare basics. No third party apps, no twitface, don't need the fm radio as most car manufacturers supply them ;-) etc.

    Kids corner I'm a bit miffed by though, although the store does now include age ratings for games etc. Again, this seems to be "clearing" out the junk for an enterprise environment. Good or bad? Who knows, but from my perspective, W10M is great as a business tool, and the RS builds are another step forward

    But unfortunately telemetry data does not include the delight and smiles on peoples faces when they see their favourite moments and memories.
    Perfectly put. Everytime they remove a delighter or unique feature, they use the 'underused' justification. But, if you design an OS that way, you will end up with the most boring experience ever. It is reasonable to focus resources on what people use and need the most, but, an OS is a design processs, which should be informed by metrics but also by art, smarts, and heart. (Unfortunately, I'm pretty sure they laid off all of those things.)

    Great subject! Where should I start? And I'm holding an HTC Radar 4G version 7X, Luma 830 version 8.X and a Lumia 950 in my hands right now doing a full comparison. Windows 10 doesnt even measure up to the previous versions not by a long shot. Sure there are new things with WP10, but what has been removed has made it as a loser iteration. I miss the good ole days of OS updates. At least you had hope knowing each year you would or might get some significant updates. This notion that you can get updates quickly now is so incremental it doesnt feel anything substantial is happening. But here are some of the things I miss from previous versions.
    1 - Photo Hub
    2 - Built-in OS Music & Video Zune
    3 - Rooms
    4 - METRO UI (Ellipsis based OS) without Hamburger menus
    5 - Game Hub
    6 - Wireless file transfer
    7 - Groups (previous version much better) better content
    8 - Travel App
    9 - Email system (previous version better (IMO))
    10 - ME App
    11 - Marketplace - The Windows 10 version is bad.

    I miss the removal of any feature that originally sold me on Windows Phones. And most are, in fact, gone. Social integration: gone. Me Tile: gone. Pivots: gone. Clean, beautiful app and UI experience: gone. Here suite of apps, including City Lens: gone. Performance: gone. Hubs: gone. Kids Corner: gone. FM radio: gone. My enthusiasm for the platform: gone.

    I can't believe I forgot to mention the volume control issue! I HATE that I have to spend half and hour adjusting flipping volumes when a simple press up or down on the volume control fixed it all. What you have to do now is just retarded.

    I also can't believe I forgot to mention the built-in QR scanning AND TRANSLATION!!! I live on the Texas border w/Mexico and there are times I really found the ability to immediately translate some signage or document was very handy.

    This new iteration of Windows Phone (WP10) is a shell of what the original version was. It sucks! I can't blame Windows Central for hyping and pretending Windows Phone 10 is good. They have to eat too. But damn, I wished I had never started with Windows Phone 7 then I wouldn't know what I was actually missing. Windows Phone 10 is a total crap in terms of the OS behavior. It truly pains me when I use WP10. As I was doing an actual comparison this afternoon with all 3 iterations, the original still stands out as number 1! Sure it needed some additional improvements but it didn't need to be gutted. I agree with you 1000% ScubaDog!

    And that's why I first stated "some" of the things I miss from the previous versions, because there is so much to miss you can't get them all! :(

    Agree on many of the above, including the FM radio, QR scanner, and even the 8 Metro interface. To me the Metro interface with the bigger font makes Windows phones unique. I still find myself recover back to 8.1 and amaze how much better the phone and apps run. I guess Microsoft is really pushing with UWP, so that anything that's unique to a platform gets scratched.

    Windows Phone was love at the first sight for me. I was using a mid range Xperia, which had its own problems like lags and freezes still worked ok for most of the time and I was pretty happy with it. And never thought something could be better. Then one day at a crowded place, I saw a person with Lumia 710 who happened to open the dialer app in front of me. I was awe struck at the fluid animation and the clean UI. So much that I bought a Lumia 920 which was a flagship back then. Sadly it got stolen some days ago and now I'm with my dad's Lumia 520. Windows 10 is so unstable on it that I can't use it as a daily driver. I miss almost all the old things like Metro UI and all the hubs.

    I miss updating live tiles for Groups for notifications for emails, texts, and calls. In Win 8.1, I could glance at four group tiles and quickly assess status with sixty-eight critical contacts, including executive management, clients, staff, and members from two different Boards. Am I supposed to ask all these people to join GroupMe? Riiiiiight....

    Maybe what I miss most of all is hope that the platform will still be around in a year and/or starting to pick up steam.

    I also think there is too much customization of the start screen. When I signed on with Windows 7, it was such a clean and unique looking experience. Now with small icons and larger screens, the home screen often looks like a cluttered, disorienting mess. That started happening around Windows 8.1 and has gotten worse with Windows 10. The Start Screen is starting to look like one of those old desktops with every shortcut pinned to the desktop if every icon would just randomly flip around with no clear timing or interval.

    A good change would be the ability to swipe live tiles sideways to cause them to flip. I hate when I miss the information flipping around.

    This is a trademark of Microsoft especially if it's a feature that users like they will cut it in the next OS. They have never been big on new features and usually just add back some of the basics that were there originally in the prior OS calling it an upgrade. They will spin their tires in the mud meaning we will be much more grayer before adding new features if at all.
