Microsoft has just announced the long-awaited update will take a few Lumia and any other phone with the latest version of Windows (Windows 10), which will start to be sent via OTA update to the users.
The list of terminals does not bring big surprises, dominated by old Lumia and accompanied by two BLU and MCJ.
Microsoft Confirmed Windows 10 Update For Windows Phones
However, there is bad news for the users using Windows Phones with 512MB of RAM; Microsoft tweeted, “We do not have any plans to put W10M on devices with 512 MB”. Thus, some people would likely to argue that their 512MB devices ran Windows 10 Mobile just fine in the Windows Insider program; Microsoft did have to draw the line somewhere.

As we already know, you can upgrade to Windows 10 Mobile. It is also necessary to have Windows Phone 8.1 or a later version of Windows.
The download is at least 1.4 gigabytes, so it is necessary to have at least the minimum space available on your Windows device. You must have an active WiFi network to update your device without interruption.
Of course, it is also advisable to have more than 50% of battery since the installation of the new system requires more than an hour, during which we can not use the phone.
Here we have created a list of Lumia devices that are going to receive the OTA update:-
1520, 930, 640, 640XL, 730, 735, 830, 532, 535, 540, 635 1GB, 636 1GB, 638 1GB, 430, 435, BLU Win HD w510u, BLU Win HD LTE x150q or MCJ Madosma Q501.
To check if the update is available or to receive a notification when it is available, you can go to Settings -> Updates or download the application Windows 10 Upgrade Advisor.
Now it’s come back for Microsoft
With these phones and updates, Microsoft may raise its sales lately, but now it’s come back for Microsoft. Some may try the power of a Lumia 950, but there will surely be many users who may have enough satisfaction with Lumia 640 or 535 even.
Between this update and the manufacturers they are joining ( Vaio or HP ) or those who look set to launch new phones with Windows 10 Mobile ( as Alcatel ), Microsoft can regain the path and recover the market. They know they already have a good product, but now its time to explain and show the general public.
