Microsoft promises its existing lumia phone uses they will all be upgraded to win 10 mobile & then trows most owners under the bus, saying that your phone is not good enough. Just as they did to win 7 phone owners, they are doing to win 8 phone owners.

 

I have a lumia 925, which meets the hardware requirements & runs the latest win10 insider build, really well, but now my phone has an unsupported OS, with no upgrade options.

 

who in there right will ever buy a phone with windows OS, if this is the way Microsoft will continue to treat its users.

 

Bottom line Microsoft should deliver what they promise.

 

Llink to a pcworld article on this subject.

I'm not sure how this has made such a big news story over the past couple of days, I recall reading around a year ago MS saying 512MB devices would not be supported for Windows 10.

And even then, they would be trying to make it work but wasnt priority as such.

 

MS still havent finalized everything yet anyway, all I've seen is a first wave of supported devices with more to come.

Happily running WM10 on a few phones that won't be upgraded via insider programme - 520, 820, 1320 so not sure how this will impact on that situation.

 

This would not have been news had not MS said they would provide WM10 for many of the x20 Lumia models as neither Apple nor Google promise to keep devices on them latest OS. But when you make a promise.......

Feel the same way, got thrown under the bus with my Lumia 800 on Win 7 and now with my current phone.

 

I'm sorry Microsoft but I expect better. I can run Windows 10 Desktop on a 10+ year old PC without issue, yet my 14 month old phone isn't being upgraded. It's just not okay.

It's only going to affect ~3-4 Windows phone users though?

It's only that many if you include the CEO and 2 of the executive branch :)

Windows phone is the corporate standard at my current employer, and also my last two employers, and those are all 1000+ user enterprises.

 

Android and Apple are simply not designed for use by business/enterprise.

And yet the last two big organisations I have worked for (one a very large government department) and the one my wife works for now all have Apple as their corporate standard.

I'm glad that I went for the low-end 435 - it has 1GB RAM. I wanted a better phone but 512MB RAM just wasn't attractive considering that RAM is so often "king" when it comes to running apps.
