Last week the software on my s6 died in mid browsing. I tried to boot it up but to no avail. Tried to flash through download mode. No joy there either. The rom would not boot. Took it to a mobile provider to be fixed. They refused to fix it. Instead I refreshed the account with a s7. Wonderful machine of a phone.

I had a stop error, the computer could not boot, not even with a repair. So the only resource available was reset and reinstall the system...best thing I did, with new functionality added to Windows, it is the best ever. Sometimes an error, however grave, we can get a benefit from.

The update to Google Play Services on Apkmirror.com is giving an update error loop. Please do not update
I had a stop error and trawled the Internet for a solution. There were several solutions but could only guide me to the final conclusion. I had for whatever reason installed a broadcom driver. Broadcom drivers do not go well with Windows 10. Uninstalled it. Now boots up fine.
BE AWARE BROADCOM DRIVERS ARE NOT COMPATIBLE WITH WINDOWS 10.

I have recently made the switch to Windows 10 whether it be mobile or PC. The architecture has matured and the interlinking is good. I love the email structure of both Mobile and PC versions. Mobile apps need optimisation to speed up their launch and data access. I have had 5 updates since I got the mobile. I love Android but Windows 10 has matured.

The new Windows 10 ecosystem is now more consistent than ever. The only drawback is the lack of apps and slowness of them in some circumstances. The only area I feel as a personal opinion that Windows 10 excels is in Calendar; email and Office apps. So far as 3rd party apps are concerned there is some way to go to offer that speedy app launch that you get with some Android apps. Just to say compared with how Windows 10 mobile started out and the updates that have brought extensive optimization Microsoft has a chance to regain Market share.

It originally shipped with Windows Mobile 6.5 Professional and although the handset is no longer supported by HTC, a very marketing malicious strategy, you can run Windows Phone 7.8 and yet you cannot access Live Services due to lack of a Activation Code from Microsoft. You can run Android roms also. Also Meego roms when they were all the rage.
When you consider that in 2009 the landscape was so much different with Android barely at Cupcake, when compared with Marshmallow today, who could have predicted the trajectory of a ground breaking OS that Android is. Whether you like it or not the Android OS is the only one that can take on IOS. Even Blackberry with their PRIV has conceded this fact.
The experience with the HTC HD2 has been interesting to say the least, in that I tried Windows Phone 7.8 but was stumped with the lack of Live Services, and yet performance was great. I returned back to Windows Mobile 6.5 with the use of a RUU utility which restored things.
I understand the cult following, how flexible a phone can be...this has to be it...so why would HTC or any other OEM want to leave behind possibilities which are endless...maybe the answer lies in the economics...hobbies are not for professionals, and they don't pay!!!

Come on Samsung!
I was assured that after testing Android 6 since 25th December and getting the 6.0.1 version I was assured that last week my s6 would be updated!
I was informed there were delays. Just wonder if the delay has to do with the launch of the s7. Not all of us can afford the s7 when it is launched.
Please update as promised.

There is nothing more annoying than crashing apps. To resolve without a hard reset try the following
1. Log out of the app and log back in.
2. Reset the permissions in Android 6.
3. Wipe the cache partition
4. Change your log on attributes in the offending app.
Hope this resolves

Just got this handset through the post. It is the phone launched just before the new Q10 and Z10 were launched.
The new software did not have the same appeal than os7.1. Email however cleverly arranged in a hub did not capture. So much so that Blackberry has adopted it's own version of Android.

I got a unit through the post yesterday. When you consider that Blackberry was king for its email services just 6 years ago shows the lack of today's innovation and the innovation of the competition. Blackberry was king and is no longer. It's time to innovate again.
