    Talk to me folks.. Is that a pipe dream for a Windows 10 Mobile device? I don't need beastly specs. The above is midrange at best.

    This: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects...dows-10-mobile

    I'm pledged for exactly that spec except a 5" screen and only $280 USD delivered. Gotta wait til November though and the kickstarter is not doing well so this beauty might not make it out of Japan after all.


    Take a chance and sign up. Nothing to loose really since they don't charge you if the goal is not met... And if by some miracle Trinity (the maker) decides to honor the pledges anyway... Your dream comes true.

    You can try to get a 930. It's a bit old, but still performs quite nice. And you should be able to find it quite cheap.

    But it has only a 5" screen. I need at 5.5" screen. I deal with alot of emails daily. So the extra screen real estate is required.

    Really the main issue is the spec you quote for the money you are willing to spend.

    For W10M, the OEMs are generally smaller and running less production. It's hard for them to compete with the spec/$ on the two large platforms due to not having a high volume discount on parts and not occupying the top tier of the supply chains to get the best parts first.

    I'm not sure that many people factor this in when they look at phones, they just see the disparity without examining the cause.

    Makes sense. I just thought about probably I can get a Lumia 1520 and update it to Windows 10 Mobile. Its officially supported. Has a great 6" screen and decent specs. I'm sure I can get one really reasonable now.

    I look at my 1520 as still highly relevant today.

    IMHO, it is still the most capable all-around device ever made for this platform.

    Think that's the best bet for me.. Had to take a stint with an Android device cause my L1320 died.. Gosh I miss Live Tiles.. I miss WM. Even with the power of the Google Play app store at my disposal, I still long for my WM device.
