    I like the part of "Native Pen Support".

    Wonder what tech they're using. I'd make the switch just for that.

    If I wasn't so rooted to Google environment... And the apps like Amazon, eBay, Walmart, Tapatalk are so undercooked. And apps I use on a daily basis (all day long for some of them ) don't exist yet on Windows: MyScript Calculator, Deezer, StarWalk, snapchat, instagram...

    I'm pretty sure it will use the N-TRIG Digitizer.

    What are usually the prices for these high end Windows phones? The Samsung Galaxy Note series always cost between USD 600-700 for the international version with no plan.

    Any idea who's getting them? If Verizon doesn't get them, I'm done with them. Even though it's larger than I would like, the 940XL is my next acquisition.

    I used to love Winows Phones. I started with a Hitachi G1000, then an HTC slider (can't recall name), and ended up with another HTC Touch. Then it seems as if Windows Phone lost a lot of steam and everyone caught up...

    Having said that, I've been on an iPhone 4S since it launched. The high end iPhones are 64GB and now 128GB.

    I'd really like to go back to Windows Phone.

    But why are high end WinPhones limited to such a low amount of storage? 32GB doesn't seem like much for a high end flagship phone.

    Can you run applications from mSD cards?

    Windows phone carry no SD slot?

    And yes. On Android it's native to transfer apps to external storage or keep its data there (E.g. A game is prob 100 mb but game data is over 1GB). And the latest development I read was that it's also possible in Windows now.

    Most of the flagship 8.1 phones didn't have an SD slot until around the time of the 1520 and 930 when Nokia came around. In Windows Phone 8.1, you could move apps/games to the SD card, but the feature will be new to the 'full' version of Windows 10.

    The use of the Snapdragon 810 has more worried as some devices with the 810 are running hot and has to be throttled. While the 808 is issue free.
