    Wanted to start some discussion around the jump from 8.1 to 10 in here.

    Do you still prefer Windows Phone 8.1 over Windows 10 Mobile? Is so, which features from 8.1 do you miss that perhaps weren't included in 10? Is there anything Windows 10 Mobile does much better than 8.1, and vice versa?

    Sound off! Should be an interesting discussion!

    I agre with the good features mentioned ... but Windows Phone 8.1 SP2 run perfectly in my Dual-Sim movil ( Work + Personal use ).
    The problem with Windows Mobile 10 is that still have problems and issues. I stay 1 year with the stable version in one phone and the insider preview in other phone.
    Forget the insider preview version. Today we do not have a fully functioning WM10 "stable" version that run safe and sound in any movile.
    Windows Phone 8.1 SP2 accomplish that task very well. That is the point.

    @Daniel Fargnoli @faisalbaba - is a 'stable' version a subjective thing? Do you think others feel WM10 is stable? If not, what is it going to take to get there?

    A year ago I upgraded my 640 with WM10. There were a few nice things but they were trivial to me. As I remember, the big points for me were that it STILL couldn't print and when looking at am e-mail with multiple pics, you can't just swipe between them. That's something I deal with regularly. So after a week I recovered it back to 8.1 and I'm very happy.

    @nt40lanman - how do you find working with 8.1 on your phone but Windows 10 on your computer? Or do you run something else on the computer side?

    James, can you be more specific? I have a Win10 desktop, Win10 laptop, Surface RT tab, and Win 7 laptop.

    I think he is asking you to compare the windows 8.1 mobile on your smartphone to the Windows 10 on the pc.

    Cheers

    I'm not sure how to compare a phone to a computer but my phone interacts with all my devices about the same. I use Outlook.com, hosted exchange, and other IMAP mail, and also OneDrive and OneNote. OneDrive on Windows 7 isn't as integrated.

    Reverted back to WP8.1 on my L735. It's faster!

    Still 8.1 on my 930. Windows 10 didn't give me problems of any sort, and the performance were good, but not as good as 8.1. It may be just my impression, but Windows 10 does everything just SLIGHTLY later. And well... I preferred the design of 8.1. It was fun, easy, colorful and much more mobile centered. Windows 10 is just like my PC; not a bad thing per se, but I just can't see my PC on my phone. The only real downside is that without Windows 10 all communications between PC and smartphone are over: no more cross-device Cortana orders and cross-device notifications (which was bliss). So... It's give and take I guess.
