    This question goes out to any one who used WP 8.1 for a long time and is now on Windows 10 mobile (preferably not insider).

    My original experience with cortana on 8.1 when it was fresh was very positive. I want to know what to expect from cortana on windows 10 mobile. So far my experience with her on w10 desktop is significantly worse than on wp8.1. Its so annoying that 90% of the time I should have just not bothered using it. My fear is that mobile will be just as bad.

    Virtually every time I use Cortana on W10 desktop I get the error, something went wrong, try again in a little bit, or the internet and I aren't talking, try again in a little bit. What is your experience?

    Generally I really like Cortana on 8.1 but I'm not ready to buy a new device yet even though my 1020 is becoming sluggish and problematic. Cortana feels like she's gone rampant. Even though on 8.1 it's "beta" I'm now more regularly gettnig the internet and I aren't talking, try again in a little bit messages. The most frustrating thing is that I get this a lot on reminders which isn't supposed to require internet.

    I've been a pretty loyal WP fan since day one, and I'm nearing my breaking point. If we don't get any exciting hardware this year, and especially if cortana is still broken as ****, I'm probably going to switch to android as a daily driver. I honestly wouldn't be surprised if cortana works better on android at this point.

    IMO, Cortana works just fine on Windows 10 mobile as it does on Windows Phone 8.1. I haven't noticed a difference between the two OSes. I'm testing W10 on my backup 635 & still have 8.1 on my 640 XL.

    I feel Cortana is very half=baked right now on the desktop. I give it another year(2 Redstone updates) before it becomes something that's a real destination for all queries.

    Cortana on W10M and WP8.1 are definitely different in at least one respect: the W10M version can't automatically silence your phone during calendar appointments, like it can in WP8.1. That is really important to me, and one of the reasons I downgraded back from W10M to WP8.1.

    I realise that particular feature may not matter to you; I merely mention it to show that the Cortana in W10M is definitely not identical to that in WP8.1.
