    please add Compass

    As you noticed, the hardware is missing for a compass. Because Microsoft Mobile does not re-add hardware after the phone is sold, please, go for another phone model.

    A word of caution: Currently, Microsoft Mobile does not sell any phone model with a hardware compass. If you rely on a real compass which is not derived from SensorCore, I recommend to go for a

    Lumia 730
    . This is the only Dual SIM phone I am aware of, which offers a compass. Even the current Lumia 550 and Lumia 950 (XL) Dual SIM extract the compass from SensorCore (which does not work for my uses).

    You posted this question in the category ‘Continuum for Phones’ which is about the new big-screen experience for some Windows 10 Mobile based phones. Therefore and to increase the visibility of your question, please, edit your post and change its category
    to: Mobile Devices » Lumia » Software update » 500-series.

    My brother has one and there's no compass in it although you can find directions using GPS.

    If you try installing a Compass app (there are plenty) you will soon find out. For example, I found my phone does not have the appropriate sensor (clear message from the app).
