Waiting for Lumia 640 XL OS Upgrade

I am not eagerly waiting for updating my Lumia 640 XL to Windows 10. As per various reference on internet. Windows 10 Mobile is expected in December 2015. I have not tried Windows Insider options as it may hamper my day to day use. But I am very much excited to see my Phone getting updated to Windows 10.

I am already loving Cortana and some other features which Updated Windows 10 offers on desktop. My laptop upgrade was smooth and hence expecting same with my Lumia.

Upgraded to Windows 10

I was planning to upgrade my Lenovo Netbook to Dell Laptop in recent future. It had Windows 7. My needs were browsing, emails, MS Office and little bit of my experiments with various applications. There was no urgent need to move away from netbook.

Mean while, I bought Lumia 520 in 2013 and recently upgraded to Lumia 640 XL. I realized that I am on right path and very soon need devices which sync with each other to reduce data duplication. Windows OS was perfect solution and hence I decided to wait for Windows 10.

On 29th July evening, I started downloading Windows 10 Upgrade as I reserved it earlier. I could not download it overnight due to lower download speed at my home. Hence continued it on 31st. Finally, it downloaded everything and started upgrade process.

The upgrade process was very smooth and did not need technical knowledge at all. It got upgraded overnight and I logged in to my netbook early morning. I am loving the new experience. Now, I am waiting for my Lumia to get upgraded to Windows 10.

I hope, I will not change my devices now unless any hardware fails.

My Lumia 640 XL

Recently I bought Lumia 640 XL. I am just loving it. It has got all the features those I wished for. Bigger screen, front camera, Windows OS, flash, MS Office and Cortana.
It will be upgraded to Windows 10 by next weekend. I use it mainly for accessing my emails, reading and editing Office documents. I enjoy setting up reminders using Cortana. I use time as well as location based reminders.
Another feature I enjoy is offline maps and navigation. I use Hindi voice navigation and it is really nice.
Now I am little excited to explore Windows 10 features. Once I upgrade my phone and laptop to Windows 10. I will be just synching settings between these devices. Also want to try screen projection features on TV or monitor screens.
