Review: Microsoft Windows 10 Mobile

Intro Major Features Minor Features Tweaked Wrap-Up Comments  7  

Windows 10 Mobile is a fine operating system and most certainly the best yet from Microsoft. On a feature-for-feature basis, it is nearly equal to what's available from Apple and Google. The biggest issue facing Windows 10 will continue to be apps.

The fresh design of Windows 10 is a welcome change and improves the day-to-day usability of the platform immensely. Only Microsoft can claim to offer an operating system that functions the same across phones, tablets, and PCs. That's a major advantage, though Microsoft hasn't yet figured out how to market it effectively. Universal apps might help close the app gap some, but that's entirely up to developers.

Continuum — turning your phone into a full PC — is genuinely cool and something other platforms don't truly offer. It's a shame this feature is limited to just the newest and best hardware.

Windows 10's greatest strength rests with Office and Outlook, Microsoft's productivity tools. The refreshed mobile apps and their cross-device compatibility are excellent. Toss in seamless syncing via OneDrive, and Microsoft has solved a major pain point for mobile professionals.

There's no question Windows 10 Mobile is a powerful and feature-rich operating system. A few remaining bugs aside, Windows 10 Mobile has more potential than any previous smartphone OS from Microsoft. If you're a die-hard Windows fan, you've probably already installed one of the technical previews. If not, I recommend checking it out as soon as you can.
