By the way, my Lumia even received update to Windows 10 I don't use it as a daily driver because it doesn't have fast internet, not even LTE. There is a refreshed hardware, Microsoft Surface Duo, but it's bulky and impractical. I don't like foldable phones. Besides, Microsoft had killed it's mobile market, and nobody is going to invest again in developing apps for it.
This is nothing to do with TCL nxtpaper11.

Nokia off loaded their phone division to MS, which (Nokia) had started going off the rails in 2003 with abandoning S80 for the poorer S60. They sold it because the switch to Windows Phone and MS messing around on changed from Win mobile 6.5, to 7 and disaster of Win 8 meant that Windows phone was doomed. Nokia still exists (the Nokia badge is licensed to TCL) doing Infrastructure. MS destroyed Windows phone trying to converge things that couldn't be.
Final nail in the coffin. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Window...dows_10_Mobile

Windows 10 Mobile emphasized software using the Universal Windows Platform (UWP), which allowed apps to be designed for use across multiple Windows 10-based product families with nearly identical code, functionality, and adaptations for available input methods.[59][60][61] When connected to an external display, devices could also render a stripped-down desktop interface similar to Windows on PCs, with support for keyboard and mouse input.[62][63] Windows 10 Mobile featured Skype message integration, updated Office Mobile apps, notification syncing with other Windows 10 devices, support for the Microsoft Edge web browser, and other user interface improvements.[53][64][65] Microsoft developed a middleware known as Windows Bridge to allow iOS Objective-C and Android C++ or Java software to be ported to run on Windows 10 Mobile with limited changes to code.[66][67][68]

With the diminishing interest and application development for the platform, Microsoft discontinued active development of Windows 10 Mobile in 2017,[19] and the platform was declared end of life on January 14, 2020.

And, no, I'm not a fan of iOS/Apple or Android. But Windows Phone by 2014 was rubbish and with Windows 10 Mobile in 2015 they destroyed it.

Note Alcatel was one of few Win10 phones. Alcatel phones since the start have been TCL.

After many user complaints, Microsoft started allowing users to downgrade from Windows 10 Mobile to Windows Phone 8.1
and the money:
Quote:
According to Microsoft's 2016 fiscal year,[100] the revenue from the company's smartphone division was $3,358 million, a 44% loss when compared to $7,702 million in 2015.
It wasn't sustainable. No-one wanted it. It was rubbish.

My best phone was my Nokia N9210i Communicator (S80, the last Nokia Symbian phones were the inferior S60). My old Sony Ericsson Z1 Android 4.1 finally lost Playstore access this year and it was the next decent phone.

Once MS had 50% in USA with Win CE phones and PDAs. They threw it away. They bought the Danger Sidekick and messed it up too.

Anyway, none of this is anything to do with TCL Nxtpaper11

Do you use the reading mode (the black and white mode)?

At first it made me laugh, but I've started using it for reading. I guess the difference is not pronounced at all when you're well-rested/not-tired but I've tried it once after a few hours of work with computer and it felt better. I still don't know if there's any science behind this, but now I prefer the B&W mode for reading. Somehow the color mode feels like 3D image, where the B&W makes it really flat easier to focus on ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

EDIT:
As for the science part: There's definitely nothing special about the display. The "Reading mode" can be activated on any Android device via developer options "Simulate colour space: Monochromacy". In fact when I toggle the reading mode it affects the developer setting. One thing I'm curious about is that the dev setting is applied instantly whilst the reading mode has a long transition. It seems to be just a fancy effect to let you believe there's something unique happening.

Nonetheless I'm surprised but the Monochromatic mode feels better for reading.

Does anyone know what upgrades (as far as display tech)we will get with NXTPAPER 3.0? From what it sounds like it’s only a brighter display and a higher resolution.
