Down Side: Not all the application support Windows Continuum, so it won’t convert like MS Office application, and you can’t install .EXE application/tool/software’s while you are in desktop mode, so still it is a windows mobile not a full-fledged desktop yet, long way to go for Microsoft on this and definitely this is a trump card to bring back the windows 10 mobile OS back on track and compete with Operating system like Apple iOS and Google Android
