Microsoft always conquers the market because of its fidelity throughout time and because it has always wanted to remain true and transparent to its customers. The big plan of Microsoft for the current year and those to come is to unify phones, tablets and desktops with Windows 10. This operating system is expected to resolve all those uncertainties of Windows 8 and put them aside, for the new era is here and there is nothing standing in its way. As a result, here it is: Windows 10 rolls out its first Technical Preview for smartphones.
The exciting event is fresh and spicy: only some Lumia smartphones are lucky enough to try it. The previews for computers have already been launched, and now it’s someone else’s turn on stage. Particularly, the guest stars are the following models from Lumia: 630, 638, 635, 730, 636, and 830. The build is available in 25 languages, even if some elements haven’t been translated yet, but the possibility of the new Windows 10 preview being used in a large variety of countries is quite promising. However, there’s a catch to it: the phone has to be operating on Windows 8.1 in order to upgrade to Windows 10. Fortunately, if the customer is not happy with his new choice, there is a rollback capability and the previous operating system can be restored.
Even if the preview has still a lot of bugs and unresolved problems, there are some huge improvements that have had a lot of positive comments. Firstly, one of the main changes shows up when you swipe down from the top of the screen to reveal notifications. Secondly, you can now enter text with your voice anywhere a text box is waiting for your input. This particular change wins over the iOS, because the impeccable gesture-writing keyboard or voice input are available and ready to start rushing through your veins. A third change that is very welcomed is the system of organizing iconography. In Windows 8.1, the list of Settings included about 42 different options, such as Start+Theme, Ringtones+Sound, Email+Accounts, Internet Sharing, Lock Screen, Notifications+Actions, Wi-Fi, and Airplane mode. The new Windows 10 concentrates all needs in a neat system that solves things faster and in a more organized way.
