Windows 10 Mobile to be Released for the Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL
When Microsoft has announced its Windows 10 OS, the world was taken by surprise because this platform brought a big change to the way the technology works, because it was going to run across computers, tablets and smartphones. Between July 29 and November 20, many desktops have been upgraded to Windows 10, but the fans were waiting for the release of the mobile version, in order to upgrade their Lumia smartphones running on Windows 8.1.
Finally, the first smartphones that came preinstalled with Windows 10 Mobile were Lumia 950 and 950 XL and now, the users are getting ready to receive a new update.
The owners of the Lumia 950 and 950 XL smartphones have been complaining about the performance of these devices, which experienced battery drains when using 4G LTE connectivity. Another issue was related to the camera application, which prevented the users to click pictures on time. The developers were informed about these problems and they will fix them in the next Windows 10 Mobile update.
Also, the camera will receive an improved HDR feature, which will allow the users to control their devices better, because until now, they weren’t able to change the way this mode was functioning and they couldn’t click HDR photos any time they wanted, as there were only two options they had access to: auto and off. Windows 10 Mobile will bring improvements to the Skype app, as well.
