    I'm not reading this entire mammoth of a thread. But, Windows as a platform and OS is superior. The issue doesn't stem from OS level features, it stems from app support. Having used the iPhone for about 6 months now, it's terrible. The OS is a poor excuse of an operating system. But, it has amazing support and releases of first party apps.

    There is another feature IOS has lately according to my "all apple" colleague.

    Regular complete IOS9 OS updates to fix annoying bugs.
    So even with only 6 devices out there, they seem not to be able to manage that huge number.....

    It is. Except few comments on apps. As such many other threads aren't going well for WP here and may be on other forums too.

    Windows 10 mobile doesn't have pattern screen lock or slide to unlock option.

    Also there is no option to change unlock gesture, pattern lock or gesture lock or picture password.

    Windows 10 mobile also lacks silly features which any average Joe building can identify and put onto that os.


    Like if you do cortana search and if no internet connection found there is no direct button to hit TRY AGAIN and if u press back key accidentally whole search statement gets erased.

    I know that live tiles are strength of windows 10 mobile but it lacks in that part too.

    LIVE TILES by name are not exactly live and we were made fool since they only show periodic data at fixed intervals but they are not actually live .
    Meaning they do not show live news feed or live information like how much internet speed u r getting and u can see on that live tile.
    Also many more live info as suggested by Microsoft "live tiles" so called.



    Also no interactive tiles yet.

    I'm talking about now. It isn't there right now in Windows 10 Mobile. Also, note the underlined and italicized word "detailed". Battery Saver only shows what percentage of battery was used and a bar graph with In Use and Background. There isn't an EXACT numerical figure given for EXACTLY how long the app was running in the background.
    Also battery saver lacks aaverage Joe features .
    LikeIt does not show
    How much time phone will take to charge completely
    Battery drainage rate
    Battery charging rate
    and many more
    And also these features on the lock screen itself and with user interaction.

    With a Windows phone I never obsess about the battery as it always makes a day. Perhaps other phones require this...

    I think there are enough battery apps if you want that data though.

    No i am just saying about the feature too compete with ios
    I am also a windows phone fan
    But the biggest reason why windows phone battery makes the day is u cannot run multiple apps side by side like in android or Symbian or ios which drains battery less since u see a cramped resuming screen or the app itself gets crashed same with w10m.


    Alo u cannot start a download in uc browser and minimize the app and let it download over mobile network like in Symbian phones. Due to this reason w10m is not gonna takeover mobile world.

    Only things to talk about are camera and live tiles. Rest nothing. Look for top mobiles anywhere...you will never find WP in top listing. Nowhere I see where there is atlest some enthusiasm about upcoming windows phones. Except on windows only forums, nobody seemsto give a damn about WP. If WP was so feature rich, then why? There are now plenty of great camera phones with android. The best here maps are there for android. They are having more ram so no more lagging issues. Forget apps, butthe basics are so complicated and you need to keep going forwards and backwards. Its never gona improve ever. They will never learn. With these pace, windows will be forever behind android. And I do not see any basic stuff changes in W10. Dont start with continum, 3d touch and all that sh!t. Just basic. Calender, alarm, OTG, ringtones, emails, browser. Thats it. And I don't think these come under 'App'.

    But he is not talking about other apps but MS own apps. They should be included in the comparison... You can argue that Apple Pay is part of their Wallet/passport app hence should be excluded. I think Apps that are part of the base OS or even from the Company are part of the base experience... Apple is miles ahead here...
    Mail, Office, camera etc are part of the OS and MS seems to be doing a much better job with Office, Email & Skype on iOS/Android than Windows...

    - I don't think WP10 supports Slo-Mo, Panorama etc out of the Camera app.
    - Granular permission for Apps that are now also supported by Android M
    - MS apps are better supported (if they appear at all on Win) on iOS/Android
    - No Resuming on iOS apps
    - Siri is almost universally supported while cortana is restricted to few countries/languages.
    - Apple Pay
    - General OS/Apps performance. Look at Camera, MS office etc.
    - OS releases/updates are not hampered by carriers and good support of their devices as iPAD 2 and iPhone 4S supports the latest iOS 9.x. Same cannot be said about Windows devices. I am not sure if all WP8 devices will be supported by WP10. And lets not talk about RT devices.

    And Many of the features listed Talal are in Beta and many of them would not be part of the OS when WP devices are released..

    I have heard that Windows Hello will not be part of December release of Lumia 950/XL and would be part of a future update. And the whole update thing is yet to be seen and if MS would be able to provide updated in a timely manner to everyone. Before that, they have to launch the devices worldwide which I don't see happening this year... I think only handful of countries are supported at launch.

    WP10 is again a dream that MS is selling and continuing their tradition of Over-Promise and Under-Deliver... Its their Coming Soon TM approach to everything unless its the competition's platform.

    One feature that figures in both iOs and Android is the method of closing apps.

    On the Windows phone you press and hold the back key which reveals the current running apps - all good so far (and a feature that only appeared on Windows Phone 8). However the next step is different from the other 2 platforms. On Windows 10 (and 8) you have to press the cross that appears and, especially on smaller screens, that can be a small target and I find myselt missing and selecting the app instead. That means I have to go through the process again.

    With both iOS and Android you simply swipe the app off the screen therby closing it.

    That I would like to see on the Windows platform

    The ability to run apps side by side looks to be coming to the widows phone platform - the 950 phones will support it and it will probably roll out when we see the universal release in (?)December.

    Did you ever use the latest versions of W10M?
    In IOS I still CAN NOT attach any file from within the mail application....

    and I'm sorry, but a widget to monitor live speed?..... overkill.

    Man I am saying that these features are already understood means if u will be building an email application. Then u will add features to attach any file type and other handy management features.


    And also widget for live speed is not overkill for our century and this features was available yearssssssss ago in Symbian s60 Nokia os via netquin mobile guard.

    Also Symbian os was once pinnacle of os's
    Before android


    Ao u saying that this is overkill then Symbian was annihilation of os.

    Live speed? As in processor speed? Uh.. Why? Symbian was developed in a much different time for mobile hardware. The dorks who had phones like that were nerds who thought knowing those bits of information made them better devices. These are mainstream devices now. Speed is irrelevant, performance is key. I don't want any widgets on W10. Matter of fact, I don't want to monitor any technical specs. I want the phone to function and be supported.

    Also, Outlook is by far the more full featured email client you can use on any platform.
