New Updates Turns Lumia Mobiles Into Full Windows PC
Although Microsoft has completely abandoned Windows 10 Mobile, those who still have a Lumia smartphone want to preserve the unrealized dream of a full-fledged Windows for as long as possible on a mobile device. However, now those users who have a Lumia 950 XL or even a Lumia 950, this dream has become almost a reality if they want to take the plunge.
One of the developers who make Windows 10 on ARM work on these two Lumia smartphones has released firmware and instructions that give at least experienced users and adventure lovers a chance to experience full-fledged desktop Windows in a smartphone. Just imagine Windows for PC in your pocket!
Why is this even necessary? There are many potential applications, but the very possibility of running the OS for computers on a smartphone is important. On the other hand, Microsoft itself has also improved the usability of Windows 10 on touch devices and ARM-based computers. What is a smartphone, if not a small ARM tablet?
The work on porting the ARM version of Windows 10 to the Lumia 950 XL has been going on for quite some time, but in a form that only a few could have tried. However, with images of firmware released by Gustav Mons, now any user with Lumia 950 XL, Lumia 950 or RX-130, and RX-127 smartphones will be able to install and run Windows 10 on them.
Of course, there are quite a few cautions when installing and using this port. First, it completely destroys Windows 10 Mobile on Lumia smartphones, and there will be no more way back. Secondly, this solution cannot yet offer dual loading of two versions, if, of course, this is generally possible in the long term.
In addition, there may still be pieces of software that may not yet work fully, and users will be forced to change a fully usable smartphone to a partially working smartphone. Nevertheless, the prospects of launching a full-fledged desktop Windows on a smartphone may be sufficient reason to encourage the owners of Lumia 950 XL to download the firmware to their smartphones. Also, no one bothers to find a suitable smartphone and turn it into an additional pocket computer on Windows.
