If eroded market share and poor hardware options weren’t already enough to throw the last bit of dirt on Microsoft’s mobile operating system, the company just made it even harder to love.
Granted, specs change all the time – supposedly for the better and to support more modern capabilities and hardware – but the Microsoft’s new specifications for Windows 10 Mobile eliminates low-end options.
The official doc on MSDN has changed to show that the minimum spec for RAM is now 1 GB. This is contrary to original plans. Microsoft originally made a lot to-do over its plans to ensure that Windows 10 Mobile could run on smartphones with only 512 MB of RAM.
The specs increase is a sign that Microsoft is working to build the best experience possible for its mobile OS, however, this might mean that any hardware running Windows 10 will be premium with premium prices.
