Windows 10 for smartphones works fine on smartphones with 512 MB of RAM
According to the data that AdDuplex was presented in turn, Nokia Lumia 630 smartphones, as well as 635 smartphones are quite popular smartphones that are popular all over the world among different age groups. All this is certainly good, but it has only recently been said that far from all Lumiya smartphones can get a full version of Windows 10 for smartphones.
However, from the words of Gabriel Aula, it became clear that the preliminary version of Windows 10 for smartphones works on the aforementioned models not only smartly, but also smoothly, which cannot but please the owners of inexpensive WP-smartphones. Actually, Mr. Aul said this in his twitter account.
For those who are not in the know, Garbriel Aul. is the head of the development of Windows 10. Therefore, all his words. give us hope that the new universal operating system from Microsoft will work equally well on all smartphones. Regardless of their RAM size.
At the same time, I would like to recall that a little earlier Joe Belfiore said that at the given time, developers from Microsoft are doing everything in their power to ensure that Windows 10 gets absolutely all smartphones that are currently running Windows Phone 8.1.
But at the same time, he warned in advance that it is possible that on models with 512 megabytes of RAM, not all the functions and capabilities of the new OS will be available. And we can only wait and hope that with this appeal he has secured us all for everything in case the developers still fail to port all new functions.
