Speed of Windows 10 Mobile Build 10549 and Windows Phone 8.1 compared in video

Last week I wrote down my personal pros and cons about Windows 10 mobile and concluded that it does not offer as high-quality experience as Windows Phone 8 did. What I found to be very good, however, was the performance.

From my experience Windows 10 mobile is the snappiest mobile OS Microsoft has published so far. Due to a lack of phones I have not done a side by side comparison, though. So a lot of you guys did not agree. While most of you agreed with me saying the latest build has an enormous performance boost compared to earlier builds, you found Windows Phone 8.1 to be overall better performing.

For sure this will be a matter of which phone you use and what settings you have applied. So a general statement about whether Windows 10 mobile is faster or not may not be possible just yet. Anyhow, this did not prevent the folks over at OneTechStop.net from making a video comparing Windows 10 mobile Build 10549 and Windows Phone 8.1 in terms of performance.

Their results are pretty clear: Windows Phone 8.1 is still the better performing OS on their Lumia 930 phones. Still, the differences are only small and the superiority of Windows Phone 8.1 seems to be minor. It gets pretty obvious, on the other hand, that – at least when it comes to the Lumia 930 and 1520 – Windows 10 mobile became a quite well performing OS with the latest build.

What are your experiences with the latest Windows 10 mobile build? Do you find the performance as good as the guys at OneTechStop.net and me or would you disagree with us? What phone are you using the software on? Let us know in the comments below!
