Last week, Microsoft released the official version of the Windows 10 Mobile operating system. But a lot of users were left unsatisfied because the upgrade is available on small number devices than was originally expected, launching an avalanche of negative reaction.

Microsoft’s official list of devices compatible with the Windows 10 Mobile upgrade Only features devices with at least 1GB of RAM memory, making devices with 512MB of RAM ineligible despite the fact that many Insiders claim that Windows 10 Mobile could work on devices with a lower amount of RAM without problems. That’s not all: some devices that are actually eligible for the upgrade when considering their specifications are not going to receive Windows 10 Mobile, either. One of these devices is HTC One M8 for Windows, a device that features 2GB of RAM — an amount of RAM that makes the HTC One M8 more powerful than most devices on Microsoft’s list.

Microsoft hasn’t specified why this phone won’t receive the upgrade, but the HTC One M8 is hardly the only device not receiving the upgrade despite proper specifications: Microsoft’s own Lumia 1020 also features 2GB of RAM and is suffering the same fate. Microsoft explained the reason for Lumia 1020’s ineligibility was due to user feedback claiming Microsoft’s OS didn’t perform well on this device — perhaps the reason why the HTC One M8 isn’t getting the update, either.

A glimmer of hope for owners of HTC One M8 does exist, though: HTC has stated on its forum that the upgrade for this device is indeed pending and that the company has plans to upgrade it eventually. Only time will tell if this is true.
