Most notably, phones 5 inches or greater can now access a one-handed mode. It works similarly to Appleâ€™s implementation; pressing and holding the start button will cause your screen to slide down so you can reach the top of the device. Then repeat the same action or tap the blank space at the top of the screen to return to normal.
On Android, this feature is only accessible on certain devices through manufacturer customizations â€“ youâ€™ll have to use two hands or work some finger gymnastics on stock Android. Since Microsoft doesnâ€™t allow third parties to have the same kind of control over the OS, itâ€™s nice to see it baking the feature into the OS by default.
Windows 10 Mobile previously introduced a one-handed keyboard for large-screened phones, showing Microsoftâ€™s emphases on one handed usability with Windows 10. You can try it out by simply swiping left or right on the space bar.
Several smaller changes are also included in the update; refined UI elements, font and icon changes as well as performance enhancements to the camera app are included.
