With more ways to customize your smartphone and more apps to choose from, along with a host of other refinements, the latest-generation Windows Phone OS brings to life what matters to you.
- Cortana: Experience the amazing new personal digital assistant that learns your preferences. Cortana is ready to help when you need it, responding to your voice or your typed commands. With Cortana you can set reminders, manage your calendar, send calls and text messages, set quiet hours and your inner circle, search the Web based on your interests, take notes, and so much more.

- Windows reinvented: Enjoy the same experience on all your Windows devices—phones, tablets, and PCs. With services including Skype®, Office 365®, OneDrive™,* and Bing®, you can create, share, work, and play from virtually anywhere.

- Action Center: With just one swipe, view notifications from your favorite apps, your texts, emails, social media updates, missed calls, and more in the all-new Action Center.
- Word Flow keyboard: Save time and effort using the intuitive Word Flow keyboard. With shape writing, you can glide your finger over the screen to chat or type. You can also tap and hold for additional content.
