    There's some interesting wording here which wouldn't be used if it were a hardware constraint

    http://forums.windowscentral.com/e?l...token=wjhHkYwL

    The following Lumia devices currently do not support double tap to wake up:
    ◦Lumia 550
    ◦Lumia 650
    ◦Lumia 650 Dual SIM
    ◦Lumia 950
    ◦Lumia 950 Dual SIM
    ◦Lumia 950 XL
    ◦Lumia 950 XL Dual SIM

    If you would like to give feedback about this feature, please use the Windows Feedback app.
    Notice it says "does not currently support", and then leads the reader to use the feedback app. My guy in Espoo told me that the wording here is intentional and exact. But you can make your own mind up about that...

    What the hell is "vibrate on pickup" ?
    :(

    And then, how a software could pop up a unexisting led on the phone?

    I agree. I'm wondering why Abhinav requires four ways of notifying or otherwise finding out the user that there are notifications while being able to turn the phone off completely while it's charging.

    I guess I'm old fashioned in that I'll notice a notification banner or I can just tap the power button.

    I suggested the switch off mode as this is a common feature on many phones....causes less heat and faster charging
    Four way notifications are only some suggestions i gave as i wrote in the first post atleast some features should come on windows 10 not all...

    I found that on Wiki on late afternoon. I voted it as The most unuseful ever >.<
    I have many friends they got a Galaxy, never told me such a nonsense feature.
    OMG there are a lot very imore mportant features we need, as a big low battery icon as old Nokia screensaver app.
    Not that stupid "vibrate when pick up"

    Heat when charging... OK let's look at that.

    The phone will heat more if you use it and charge simultaneously, but you want the phone off so that isn't an issue...

    Fast charging such as on the 950XL will increase heat period. Off or on it will be hotter than standard charging. No way around that really.

    When not in use and on a standard charger or Qi stand, my phones don't get more than slightly warm...


    Faster charging?

    When idle with the screen off or just Glance, the phone really isn't drawing that much charge. How much of an advantage do you presume this is? 1% to 2% extra an hour would be my guestimate.

    Here is a screencap from my 1520 which has been sitting idle in my pocket (so no Glance running) for a couple hours. I just unlocked it and opened up Battery App. Note the discharge rate of a whopping 1.01% per hour.

    Not every device will have the features all others have. We'd end up with everyone having the same phone.

    I think you are making mountains out of molehills here. "Nice to have" is much different from "Much Needed Addition Required ASAP" and not everyone is going to see these as "key features" that will make or break the UX.

    Just trying to inject some rational facts into it.

    IMHO, trying to make a new OS conform to what you are familiar with on a previous one is a quick way to a headache. They all have their own feature sets, behaviors and ways to accomplish tasks. When I switch between platforms I try and train myself on the ways of the platform rather than trying to tame the device to my old habits...

    Can't say any of them is a big miss for me. I HATE the glance screen and it's the first thing I turn off, I know lots of people like it but to me it's a nag.

    DTTW is of no consequence to me either, in fact I only ever tried it on my old 925 when people with 950/xls were complaining about not having it. I now have a 950 and would far rather have flip to silence and weather on the lock screen back.

    Well, I don't have a 950/XL, but I wonder why my cheap 535 has Double-Tap-To-Wake while the Microsoft flagship doesn't. That makes no sense to me.

    I would have killed for a LED in the front of the device so I don't have to check the charge by turning the screen on every xx minutes. But MSFT decided to save a couple of pennies and didn't put a LED light. Oh well...

    The 2nd-gen Moto E turns the screen on "a la Glance" when you pick up so you can see the time and some notifications. That would be an useful Win10 feature. Not all phones have Glance or a LED. Mine has neither.

    I definitely agree with the accent color from background. I use it on the desktop W10.

    that's obvious, but when you "upgrade" and find you now have missing features... cmon who wouldn't like to see Nadella whipping some lazy devs

    Only really care about 1: double tap to wake. And I already have that in Windows 10. I think that's a firmware/phone issue, not a Windows 10 since it works fine on my 1520.3.

    I also slightly care about another you listed but didn't make it to the poll (run out of options?).

    Its not make or break but I would like a battery indicator up on the top ribbon with a number in percentage of battery. Most battery add on apps are not very accurate and seem to use more power than they are worth (even if they are free) and the current charger icon is way too small for older guys like me without squinting with my spectacles. Loving my week old 950!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.

    My only reason for it is this scenario:

    You have a great phone you use as a daily driver and a Lumia 640 you mess around with on the side. You don't want the L640 to run on empty the next time you use it to run or listen to music or whatever. But you forget that you had set an alarm clock or you get some email notification in the middle of the night because you plugged it in and it won't stay off. It is a very small annoyance, but it actually reduced my use of the phone.

    Was that a Nokia add on? Probably disappeared with the merger like many of the other Nokia apps.

    LED notifications are a nightmare for me. As a taxi business owner, and driving myself, I find the LED flashing VERY distracting. It sits there flashing away, and sooner, or later, you just have to check it otherwise it just continues. I was told once to choose a colour for different notification. You then end up on the M25 trying to remember what colour means what, and there it is again, nagging you, tempting you to deal with it and running the chance of bumping in to the Traffic Police for using your phone whislt driving, just to kill the damned thing.

    Glance is way better. But then again, so is Cortana. Glance just sits there, with your notification highlighted, but not nagging you to deal with it. Then after inactivity, glance fades away. I have no reason to check notifications all the time because if it's a text or call from the office, Cortana is hard to beat. For any other stuff, my band 2 takes care of it. A quick glance and I know whether it is spam or work related.

    My biggest beef is double tap to wake. I jump from phone to phone at work. We've got 14 devices for drivers etc.My 'flagship' is missing the best feature of the 640's, 640xl's 930 etc...Very frustrating when I grab my 950xl and sit there like an ***** tapping the screen

    Once you have used Double Tap, you WILL know what all the fuss is about. It's great for me, in the office environment, I just tap the screen and I haven't even got to pick the phone up to use it.

    When my drivers are out on the road, they can leave the phone in the car holder, tap, and the phone is awake for checking job details etc.

    For something so simple, it does make a huge difference. Once you've tried Tap, Tap, there ain't no going back

    Your phone is sitting flat on the desk. You get a notification sound. It is slightly easier to double tap the screen to open the phone than to push the button on the side of the phone which requires semi picking it up. If you start using it, it is annoying not to have it. I forever accidentally double tap my SP3 trying to wake it up.

    Its like having a touch screen lap top then going to a macbook pro. The mac user would say, "why do i need a touchscreen, i have a track pad that lets you scroll and resize everything." But once you use the other technology, you just know.

    I'll write down my opinion about your requests (that you should do to Microsoft, not to a FanPage):

    1) Led Notification support: This is very important as one cant check the phone all the time to see if their is any missed call or messages
    I don't know all Windows Models, but AFAIK, the only one with LED was the Lumia 730/735, correct me if I'm wrong.
    2)Double Tap To Wake Up: This feature was much loved in the 8.1 version then why remove this on the windows 10, bring it back
    Aww Yeah!!!
    3)Vibrate on pickup: This feature is present on most of the phones nowadays, when their is some missed calls or new messages or any other notification, when the phone is lifted the phone vibrates indicating that there are some notifications ready for you.
    That would be nice, but knowing most people, they're phone junkies, they can't keep their faces off the screen, not even with their friends/family.
    4)Glance Screen: Glance screen is a gr8 feature but what will make it more useful is the feature that will make it flash every 10 seconds when there are some missed calls or any other notifications which will be quite useful when we cant reach our phones and can see the notification flash from far away, instead of going near and checking the glace screen by swiping our palm over proximity sensor.
    I think a device with a notification LED is more than enough, people will be complaining about battery life.
    5)Battery Indicator: Indicate the percentage of battery on the screen itself so that their is no need of swiping down the menu bar.
    Not really necessary. What for?
    6)Charging On Switch Off Mode: This is surprisingly not present on lumia 950xl, this has to be added as charging the phone on switch off mode is a very common feature, the phone automatically switches on.
    It happens with every Lumia I know.
    7)Pick Up Accent Colour From Background: Automatically pickup accent colour from background is a feature present on the windows 10 desktop then why not the mobile, pls add this great personalisation feature.
    Would be awesome!!
    8)Incoming Call Screen Management: When we are using our phone and suddenly a incoming call comes up, whole screen is occupied by the caller screen and one cant use the back button or home button or complete the pending work or just close the application you were working on, so instead of covering the whole screen it would be wise if only a part of the screen is covered so that if the call isnt important we can just continue with our work.
    Ignore the call?
    Add all these feature and the windows 10 will be the best platform, at least add some of these features.
