    Resuming is now gone. The apps simply restart and go back to it's exact position. Unless I'm getting crazy that's what I seen lol

    Hi guys, I searched the forum but couldn't find a list of new WP10 features to look forward to when the preview launches later today. Does anyone have a link?

    Edit: I couldn't find a simple list, so here's my version, with help from others in this thread:

    - new fullscreen background option on start, with parallax when swiping sideways but not for up/down
    - new large tile format: wide, square (2x2). Select MS apps only for now
    - a new full-featured file explorer!
    - more quick settings toggles in action center
    - improved settings menu (finally!)
    - Lumia camera app is now the default
    - hints that inking support is coming!
    - linear brightness slider instead just three settings
    - actionable notifications
    - synced notifications with Win 10
    - new universal calendar, photo's, email (swipe to flag/delete), word, powerpoint apps
    - changes to calculator, timer, stopwatch, and world clock, apparently
    - new music app (not included in preview)
    - dictation via keyboard anywhere you can type (Speech To Text, STT)
    - detach keyboard (large screen phones only?)
    - live interpretation of swype gestures
    - fine cursor button / pointing stick on keyboard
    - Skype and other messaging integration (again)
    - new browser engine with Apple HLS support (no Spartan yet, just the new engine)
    - device encryption option under Settings/System
    - phone reminds users of their next calendar item during shutdown
    - press and hold bluetooth toggle links to bluetooth settings


    Please post here if you spot any other changes.
    Bro, please add screenshots, which are not shown in WC articles,

    Added the new sound recorder app and screenshots of the calculator app.

    Edit: ok, don't laugh at me for linking to two post up. I swear, that info was in a separate thread before it got merged here!

    Please could someone with Win10 for Phones tell us a little more about the new Outlook Calendar & Email Apps...

    For example, do they have options to show more info on the live tile?

    ​By the looks of it - those apps aren't included yet.

    That sounds like a big improvement over 8.1.
    In 8.1 a single tap turns on WiFi, a second tap takes you to WiFi settings.
    I don't like that. No way to turn off WiFi in the notifications center.
    Bluetooth one tap to turn on second tap to turn off.
    It doesn't take you to settings at all.
    Not a very well thought out design.
    Edit.

    Sorry, not sure what happened it should of quoted Jugal's post.

    I prefer this method. I use it every day in my other phone.
    Its an Android phone made by LG.

    I don't think it's bad for Windows phones to become more Android like, as long as they implement it in away that doesn't distract from the Windows phone design.

    You could add that the settings app now includes an encryption option.

    So, if the "new" action center is supposed to be a complete copy of Android, couldn't they have done it with 8.1 already? Lol

    i installed windows 10 on my phone, to my surprise it had some of the features as described in the official video by Joe, but it didn't have latest office and mail client the same old previous, otherwise its awesome.

    I think, but this needs confirming, that when you use the edit box voice dictation, there is a nice feature:

    If it gets a word wrong in a dictated sentence, when you click on the word the auto-complete line shows other possible interpretations of the word for you to select to easily correct its mistake.
