Windows 10 Mobile minimum specs go even lower than Windows Phone
posted by Daniel P. / Jul 22, 2015, 6:47 AM
For starters, Windows 10 Mobile will be able to run on devices with 512 MB of RAM and 4 GB storage only, which is the same threshold we had before with WP 8.1. Here the bar gets lowered, though, as Win 10 Mobile handsets can lack even Bluetooth and accelerometer, and can sport VGA front cameras, while the WP 8.1 mark was at 2 MP.
those $80 handsets it is prepping to release, but don't expect Windows 10 Mobile to run the same and offer the same features from the lowest hardware specification to the highest.When it comes to processors, the Win 10 for phones will be able to run on every Qualcomm chipset under the sun - from the lowly Snapdragon 210, to the beastly 810, as well as Intel’s X3 Sofia LTE SoC. All in all, it seems that Microsoft has managed to optimize and shoehorn the new mobile OS for even the most basic of scenarios, perhaps in reference to

they better hurry up optimizing Windows 10 for phones, cuz preview versions so far on my old Lumia 820 suck gorilla balls and couldnt have more bugs

This will make sense if they can port WM10 in the first generation phones of windows.

I am going to guess he meant WP8 devices like the Lumia 820 and 920 and first generation HTC 8X and the Samsung ATIV line. If you still own a WP7 or Windows Mobile and are wondering about your next upgrade, you have both the patience of Job and the tech knowledge of my pooch who can't figure out that she can't get through the double paned window to chase those squirrels.

IPhone has mid to low end specs. Just look at the iPhone 6 display is only HD, dual core 1.3 GHz CPU, with 1 gb of ram, 16 gb of storage. Now with specs like on Android or Windows phone, you would put a phone like that in the mid to low end category with a price to match. Yet Apple charges flagship prices for something like that. Yet Android can use every processor known to man, because its a device agnostic platform. Something that Apple themselves is now trying to follow with their Apple Swift. Just like Microsoft as well with their Universal apps.

Great work Microsoft, really liking your moves to make great bang-for-buck products accessible to a wide range for consumers...unlike some fruits who mostly targets those who have more cash than sense. This is yet another proof that old hardware is no excuse for the garbage OS programming Apple keeps doing to render their old devices slow and obsolete...forcing it's consumers to buy a new one.

Windows Phone OS itself is fast and responsive on my device with Snap 400 but Games do really lag badly, but it didn't lag my old Moto G ( Same chipset and screen resolution)! Games take ages to load and graphics are very poor! It may be due to poor optimization on WP but still gaming is pretty bad!

OH I would so love to know how to crack the Dell Venue Pro and get that Win10M That would rock. Now they say 210 which means it should be able to use any process that is ARMv7 compatible which goes as far back as the single core S1 QSD8250 Win7 phones like the DVP came with.. :) I just REALLY REALLY wish someone made a DVP that was 4G with a good camera.. BRING BACK QWERTY dang it.

"as Win 10 Mobile handsets can lack even Bluetooth and accelerometer, and can sport VGA front cameras," Damn...are they goint to try feature phones too? And as always....there will be a form of fragmentation with any mobile OS. Especially when you target low end like Android and Win Mo. I assumed all universal apps wouldnt be available on all Win Mo 10 phones...this articles just confirmes it.
