Windows 10 Mobile First Impressions

I've been wanting to try out the #Windows10 Mobile Preview since it was first available, however I didn't want to try out the unstable OS on my daily driver, the #Lumia 1020. That all changed yesterday when I picked up a new Lumia 640 XL and immediately opted it into the Windows Preview and now I am sitting here with a Windows 10 phone next to me.

I was expecting a slow, frustrating experience with Windows 10 Mobile but you know what, so far it's been great. Granted, I've only been using the OS for a few hours and it's running on much newer hardware than my 1020 but the thing is fast, you might even say "it's fast and fluid".

I am liking the new apps (especially Outlook), the new animations (People hub and opening apps) and the improved Action Center (still not a fan of the name!). This most surprisingly positive experience so far is being able to use the same app on my #Surface and Lumia, it's immediately familiar despite being on a much smaller screen. Of course I knew this would be the case but there's nothing quite like seeing it in practice. I imagine this will be very beneficial for those who have Windows 10 running on their PC and then try out/buy a Lumia.

Over the coming days and weeks I will share more of my experiences of the new OS with you and look forward to seeing how it and the apps develop. If you have any questions about the Lumia 640 XL or Windows 10 Mobile then ask away.

Can't wait. I'd love to see lots of pictures/screenshots along with your thoughts and analysis.
