The justification comes down to feedback and operation, with users saying the “encounter did not fulfill expectations,” Microsoft noted.
In a different tweet, Microsoft said the HTC One M8 WOn’t be receiving Windows 10 Mobile either, although the business didn’t offer an explanation.
@ MarvelBoyRed We do not have any details to share on upgrades for that apparatus at this time.

Since declaring Windows 10 Mobile, Microsoft has continuously moved the goalposts on which apparatus will get the improvement.
It seems Microsoft will not make good on that strategy either. Unless users choose to put in evaluation builds through the Windows Insider application they will be stuck with old software.
As for which mobiles are receiving the upgrade, right now it is a subset of typically the most popular versions, including the Lumia 1520, 930, 640, 640XL, 730, 735, 830, 532, 535, 540, 635 1GB, 636 1GB, 638 1GB, 430, and 435; along with some third party mobiles like the BLU Win HD w510u, BLU Win HD LTE x150q, along with the MCJ Madosma Q501. Microsoft hasn’t yet assured upgrades for some older main handsets left off the list, such as Lumia Icon and the Lumia 1020.
Why this matters: Not getting the newest smartphone operating system mightn’t look like a large dilemma–hey, Android users deal with this all the time–but the trouble in this instance is that Windows 10 Mobile includes yet another independent program ecosystem from its forerunners. As they go onto the Universal Windows Platform, some programmers are already left their Windows Phone 8 programs, and users who can not update will be excluded.
