Unfortunately, while many are excited for Windows 10 Mobile, not all devices will be able to upgrade. Microsoft made a bold statement by excluding some devices from the Windows 10 Mobile upgrade. As you might know, some of these devices used to run Windows 10 Mobile during the Insider program, so excluding them seems a bit unusual.
According to Microsoft, this upgrade will introduce a variety of new features, meaning some older devices might not be able to handle them. Microsoft stated these features could impact user performance as the main reason for its decision.
Microsoft’s ultimate goal is to deliver the best possible experience with Windows 10 Mobile, and as such certain sacrifices had to be made in order to do so. We don’t know yet how many users are affected by this decision, but they’ll unfortauntely be forced to stick to Windows 8.1.
