Some big news came out from Microsoft regarding Windows 10 updates. Apparently Microsoft has said that in the future they would be in control of Windows 10 smartphone updates instead of leaving it up to the carriers. Carriers will have some input but the control will be left to Microsoft.
That is great news if it is in fact the way Microsoft will be handling updates! I always found the update process through the carrier frustrating! Glad to hear this may be happening!
Seems to follow or mimic the "closed ecosystem" that Apple utilizes for their products and OS.
Definitely interesting! It was very frustrating to have to wait for updates, especially when you have to wait months for it! Luckily the Developers preview helped me get updates quicker.
I used to be a Apple user/fan. Then got bored with the tech. I've had my Lumia 920 since December of 2012 and I can't even think about going back to iOS.
Not a fan of Samsung tech, I don't find it reliable.
I think with Windows 10 mobile and the tools that Microsoft has made available to developers to port apps from iOS and Android that it will definitely make it easier and gain more support. The Candy Crush game on Windows Phone is the direct port of the iOS version apparently. So it can be done!
Hahaha no, not a developer at all. However you can sign up to be one for free through Microsoft. Download a app through the store and developer unlock your phone. So you get all the updates over the air and don't have to wait for the carrier to do it. I had the Denim update months before it was released in Canada.
Apple users will always talk about how their devices are superier. However paying nearly $1000 for a phone doesn't make it better. I can get a Lumia 1520 that is a year older than the iPhone 6 plus and has equal too or better tech in it for $300-$400 cheaper. Let the Apple users pay more for their tech if it make them happy lol.
My mother in law has one of the Samsung Notes, and she loves it. My fiance has a S4 but they have both had lots of problems with them. I would never get a Samsung phone but that is just my personal preference, nor would I talk someone out of it if they really liked one.
I agree though, Apple doesn't stand a chance against Samsung in the long run. iPhones are only popular in North America because its the only demographic that can financially support the devices price tag.
Microsoft has signed agreements with Samsung so apparently there will be more Microsoft apps and services loaded onto Samsung Phones when they are shipped. Hopefully that cuts down on Samsung bloatware.
