Windows 10 phones are not dead yet. Acer, Alcatel OneTouch just made some new ones


Re: My phone should work like my Windows PC

> Is that what you want in a phone? No. What you want in a phone is that when you put it in your daughter's hand and say "if you need me, call" that when she has to call the thing will ******* work immediately on the first try.

And you are suggesting that, if it does the above, it can't do anything else?

In the specific case if giving an offspring a phone, I would imagine it will less likely be the continuum-capable high-end anyway.

However, unlike some other OSs, WinPhone will update the phone location regularly and allow locking, ringing etc. in case of loss. These are useful things to have and they are there out of the box, along with maps etc.

Oh, and the phone calls from my Nokia are high quality indeed.
