    Virtually every Windows 10 PC can get the Creators Update, but phone owners won't be so fortunate. Microsoft has revealed that only some Windows 10 Mobile devices will receive the Creators Update when it's ready. The company's own Lumia devices are covered, naturally (from the Lumia 550 and above), but it's slim pickings beyond that -- the Alcatel Idol 4S, HP Elite X3 and VAIO Phone Biz are some of the few third-party examples that qualify. If you ask Microsoft, it's all about setting performance expectations.

    Not getting the latest update can be disappointing to some Windows Phone users. But, it is somewhat expected that cheaper and slower devices can't handle newer operating systems.

    I agree.

    Sticking to Android Phones lets user root their phone, and update their operating system to a newer OS, or downgrade back to an older version of Android. Users can also pick from many Custom ROMs which also don't contain pre-installed/bloatware apps like the Calculator, Calendar, Gallery, and other unwanted apps which a user may never want to use.
