    I'm not hugely bothered by the fact that my 3 year old 925 won't get an official update, more that we were led to believe we would get it until the official update dropped and we were excluded.

    I understand the reasons for this, but (IMO) it would have been better to allow x2x users to upgrade at their own risk, with the caveat that although they get an official update to 10586.164, they won't get anything beyond that. Allows users to make the choice, as we have seen wildly varying performance on some devices.

    I know we kind of did get that, as we can carry on with the insider builds that we have, but it's not official so non-insiders won't get it

    Well, I hit the forums to complain as a 1020 owner, but on reading this thread, I decided to try the Insider way, it took a long while, but the phone is good with Win 10 on it now.
    Hi Pandaz!
    But how your Camera? How it's working? No problem with blur imags?

    This may be the final straw that pushes me over the edge to Android.
    Really guys?! were talking about 3+ yr old tech here. I know people that upgrade their Apple devices yearly.. not to mention, Apple will FORCE you to upgrade every TWO years by blocking their newest OS on older phones. Android and apple keep their "good name" by only supporting the latest hardware. I agree with MS following suit. That said, I also agree that WM needs to get its SOFTWARE on track, work flawlessly, align the user experience (UX) so people feel confident owning a windows phone. Building a solid brand will give them a "good name" with their users.

    WM is showing some refreshing innovations which apple has been copying for awhile now (EG: linking accounts was from WM7, long press actions, living images) the list goes on.. I think just yesterday they announced a (new) ipad that cant even compare to a surface 3! THAT puppy cost $200 MORE than the surface 3, the pen costs more, the keyboard ..more! People will act like its the second coming and line up in droves for it as ushe. theres your "old tech" right there.

    There's maybe coming 10586.200 next month

    About the death of Insider program, I guess we'll know something about during Redstone release on Preview ring... Maybe summer.

    Nokia Lumia 1320 - Microsoft - India
    I have my eyes open, maybe you need some glasses https://www.qualcomm.com/products/sn...kia-lumia-1320

    Now, SD400 is a SoC, not only the processor but every piece of silicon that is part of it.

    what happened to the firmware update for older windows phone 8.1 devices to run Windows 10 mobile? Windows 10 Mobile runs great on my lumia 920 it was great flag ship phone and still a good phone. I think Microsoft should release it to x20 devices as an option to download official windows phone 10 update.

    Bad timing by MS. Carriers are dropping phone subsidies, so people will hang on to their WM 8.1 phones for a long time (my 928 is perfect) , developers will now have essentially 1/2 the already small user base for the foreseeable future.

    When I saw the lumia 430 was getting the Win10 upgrade I was sure that my lumia 925 (daily driver) would run it, so I downloaded the windows insider app and logged in, selected the release preview ring and waited for it to update.
    I have a lumia 720 in the fast ring and got completely ruined, it is almost unusable. But I've been using the Win10 925 for a couple of days now and it's completely stable with no noticeable lag.
    I would totally recommend it to those who don't know what will happen to their devices. if it's got 1GB of RAM, it will most certainly work.
    Hope this helped some people!

    I'm a happy owner of a wp 8.1 lumia 820. But my impression is that Windows mobile is already dead with this hideous move from microsoft.

    I can understand your frustration, but you know it's not true.
    They wanted to update all WP8 Lumias but it was not possible, unfortunately.

    And they are doing it better than others:
    Microsoft can teach Android makers a thing or two about updates | Android Central

    But this is MS ...

    Tell me now at least one reason (expect release date) why sanpdragon S200 (2core lowend at launch time) can get W10M and Snapdragon S4 plus (2 core highend at launch time) which is outperforming S200 can not...

    I understand they wont give us possibility to upgrade because they demand from us to buy new HW ez as duck

    I've noticed that people that hold this opinion have an upgradeable phone.

    The 1320 has an S4 chip not SD400, same fate at the other x20 devices. ..

    1320 has the dual-core version of Snapdragon 400. S400 is released in two versions.

    Owning an 820, phone that's been launched over 3 years ago, and still receiving updates... i cannot complain. With Insiders i even got Win10M, so i even get new features. Overall for such a old phone, gotten a few major updates, still getting patches on win8.1 and now via insiders still getting (onofficial) perfectly working updates, i'm totally happy with that!

    For the future i prefer Microsoft focusing on getting win10 to work on modern hardware, getting it perfect, and attacking the current market, than supporting the few last owners of old phones. As long as they keep bringing security patches to all the x20 phones, they 've delivered more than reasonable support for the phones.
