More screenshots of Windows 10 for phones pop up, hint at several new features
With every day that passes we are getting closer and closer to the release of Windows 10 for phones, a software refreshment that is quite anticipated by those admiring Microsoft's work. We've already have a pretty clear understanding of what some of the more notable features will be, not to mention that we've saw a surplus of screenshots from the upcoming Windows. 

Guess what, we have a new host of screenshots from the upcoming version of the OS that are showing us even more aspects of the interface. What's more, we seem to be hinted at some new features. For example, certain devices (Lumia 730, Lumia 735 and Lumia 930) will be able to utilize the on-board LED light.

It also seems that you'd be able to remove your existing Microsoft account without resetting the phone to default factory settings, much like Android and iOS function.You'd also be able to import and export your contacts to and from the SIM card. Some of the icons have received some love as well. 

Take a look at the screenshots right below.

I don't know about you, but with moderate usage, I got pretty far into the day before it needs to be re-charge.

with good usage throughout the day, I get on average of 10-14hrs out of it. Not to bad. I am rarely out of charger range for more than 10hrs. And the times that I am, it means I am doing something, in which case my phone has lasted to 40hrs with some usage. At 16% and states 2hrs of usage left. I know if I didn't charge it, and slept, I could wake up to a phone that wasn't dead.

Ease of access...change text size in people, phone, email, sms, lock screen and some webpages. This will certainly make its way down to w10 as well.

Right now I think Microsoft is hot and heavy getting Windows 10 for Desktops, Laptops and Tablet/Tablet hybrids ready to be sold on devices coming out this 2015 school opening season in September. some insiders say this is the big goal at Microsoft is for it's OEM partners. I think they can do it but the Windows 10 smart phone OS may be slower in development because of the rush to have Windows 10 up and running on devices Microsoft makes more money selling licenses on.
