Leaked Windows 10 Mobile build 10149 finally moves Edge browser address bar to the bottom

Windows 10 Mobile build 10136 may have just released to WIndows Insiders a week ago, but we're already getting a peek at what's coming down the line in future builds. Thanks to the folks at MSMobile.pl, some screenshots of Windows 10 Mobile build 10149 have leaked, revealing some minor tweaks and a welcome change in Microsoft Edge.

Perhaps the biggest change of note, and one that will make many Windows Phone fans happy, is that the address bar in the Microsoft Edge browser has been moved to the bottom of the screen. Edge also picked up an option for Mobile or Desktop view on webpages, along with a significant version bump to 19.10149.0.0.

Some other changes in build 10149 include new shortcuts for the flashlight and toggling data, an extra row of shortcuts in the action center, and some minor cosmetic changes on the start screen. MSMobile also notes that this build feels much more responsive than the current 10136 build as well.

While Microsoft has set a release date of July 29 for Windows 10, it's still unclear when we'll get a final version of Windows 10 Mobile. However, if MSMobile's impressions of this leaked build are anything to go by, it seems that things are certainly starting to shape up.

  • Flashlight toggle! Edge box on bottom! YAY
  • I know, those are both awesome (especially edge address bar).
  • I hope there's an option for edge, kinda liked it on top.
  • You're that one weird guy in the party, aren't you?
  • Having option, always a win win solution.
  • Maybe up to a point but look at how ridiculous it has become with Tablet Mode in Windwos 10. There is so much setting up to be done. 99% of users just won't bother and for the rest of us it will be a tedious chore.
  • Absolutely agree, I think it is more modern and looks and feels better at top.
  • Of course, there's the hilarious contradiction there because browsers have traditionally had address bars on top before smartphones became popular. You call the past modern. On larger devices, it's so much worse, as it makes one-handed use notably more tedious, especially if you have small hands (I don't).
  • Mmm Next Lumia flagship will have option to place address bar I air(3d touch). And will be named Lumia edge with free 3g speed downloading from edge mobile browser.
  • what does "it's more modern and feels better on top" even mean. A ui is about usability and the people who advocate control on the bottom have a pont. with large phones and the way people hold their phones, having important ui elements on the bottom makes sense. The half screen thing to access elements on top isn't very good. Apple did that when they launched their larger phones and I bet most people don't use it.
  • All it means is "I am used to Chrome so that must be the best".
  • obviously you werent around during wp7. address bar at the bottom is the biggest reason for me to stick with windows (after windows mobile 6.5.1) rather than jumping ship to android.
  • Indeed!
  • you say that now. later you will say that the OS is bloated, difficult to use, and uses too much storage space. sometimes you have to chose a direction that most people like and the smaller niche that doesn't like it will learn to deal with it. Apple isn't afraid to make these decisions. Some users might not like the ui at first but later they adjust to it.
  • Apple isn't afraid bcoz even if they sell shit people will go for it. Apple fanboys are just like brain washed terrorist.
  • iPhone 7 can be a 3g phone and it would still sell be sold out on day 1
  • Only in the US...20% worldwide is not at lot compared to >70% android.
  • Hahaha
  • What's your deal? He's open to opinion.
  • Actually I have to say, there more weird guys are out there than him. Like those people that won't buy Windows phns, cuz they can't get Snapchat crap app. Yeah, they buy those Overpriced iJUNK 6/6+ or Android phns, just for "1 app", and NOTHING else(like camera, screen, battery, NFC, MicroSD slot, Wireless charging, 4K recording,................none of that matters, except for Sanpchat). Now those are Weird people in the entire world. Thats 1 crap app i don't give a rats ass for.  
  • Man you always like it on top.lol j/k Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • Go iPhone if you want foolishness like that, I like it at the bottom like normal people!
  • Options aren't bad, "Go to iPhone" is a pretty egotistical type view, "My way or the highway." Well, if we want to be force feed one design style shared by all: We buy Apple and iOS. But if we want options, personalization and customization: We buy Microsoft, Google, Windows and Android. ;)
  • Telling him to go iPhone? Really?...i like the address bar on the bottom too, but please grow up..
  • iPhone users ARE the normal people.... Being a Windows phone user in particular makes you an odd ball
  • Nah, Android people are 'normal' people.
  • Android is for nerds, and people who don't care about there privacy :-)
  • I own a 640 XL and if the address would be at the top of the screen, it would be a really really bad idea. It would be less convenient to reach. Not a big deal but I hope Microsoft will let it at the bottom.
  • Having address bar at the bottom is a good and convenient solution to large screen devices. I use 1520 and its very useful on it. 
  • This may be a long shot but... I would like to have the option to have it either on top or bottom. If on top, they could also give us the option to auto-hide the address bar when we scroll. I see they got rid of the status bar in the pics though; the browsing area currently looks cramped on my 920. Adding auto-hide would make it better for me. But hey, giving the user options might be not fun for them.
  • It's a responsive app, I don't think they can put a toggle to that. Buy who knows.
  • It's a responsive app, I don't think they can make it responsive :-) Whole point of responsive apps is that they respond - to screen size, orientation, input method but also user actions, settings, toggles and so on. It's like 10 lines of code to give us a toggle and moving address bar from top to bottom and other way around.
  • Having an option for top or bottom makes sense. Also an option for auto-hide when scrolling.
  • This!
  • option to hide with arrow icon.
  • Yeah, make it auto-hide like from Windows 8.X. At least just leave a thin black ellipsis bar at the bottom, or maybe none at all only when you tap the area at where the address bar is or when you scrolled to the top or bottom of the page.
  • You like it in the bottom huh?
  • Same here, I want it on top
  • With you. Address bar on top looks good for a browser. That said, having options is good. :)
  • not in favor of options any more, its getting out of hand. should we ask for keyboard layout repositioning for an option as well, because i dont like to click the "O" right were it is now?
  • Still needs custom sounds from notifications. In the notifications& sounds area I didn't find where to put a custom sound to my apps
  • yeah, like the alarm sound did, they give us an option to choose from music library
  • YASSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS
  • So we got it. Everyone wo doesn't want to roll back to 8.1, will have to wait until this build for getting rid of 10080 build. Wow!! And then microsoft says: You don't have to roll back. Yeah, but they will make shure you do!
  • Nice, for once they actually added one of the features I asked for in the feedback.
  • Cool
  • I understand its an insider preview and still a work in progress, but I'm not very impressed so far with W10 mobile. windows 10 for phones wont change everything, but i'm trying to be optimistic. please don't make me choose android
  • Just go to android then...
  • Who are you talking to?
  • U sound sad and depressed. Thank God u haven't used Skype yet... Thank God
  • W10m is changing everything what we have in wp8.1. Its a complete overhaul
  • If you dont mean "app-gap" , i dont think there would be much difference whether you choose android ,ios , or windows, since basic functionalities are more or less same on every platform,atleast with win 10 they are , for example notification center,toggles etc . I am not talking about finger scanner , curved edge because imo they are gimmick. I am not sure even app-gap is there now. So it actually depends on whether you intend to use high-end or low-end. For low-ends MS's phones are win-win, cant say the same about the android ones.
  • When major apps like Uber, Chase, pay2park,Tinder, google maps etc etc arent available for WP, that app gap becomes quit embarrasing. I have both android and WP. My WP is my primary phone since I like to be the weird one. And trust me it gets embarrasing when you dont have that app when people ask 
  • There's an official Uber app and 3rd party Google maps and Tinder apps.
  • Nobody has closed the door so it's wide open. I'd like to say my goodbyes now...
  • Better get some Depends because that is one hell of a leak.
  • That is a very impressive leak... Nevertheless, I hope the force close issues are resolved, and the Edge browser issues are fixed.. Dialogue boxes not selectable.. Slow rendering.. Unable to log into sites... These issues weren't apparent in the build before 136, but they are now...
    ....
    Oh, OneNote... Can't barely update pages because text won't render right... SMDH.. Lol.
  • I have 136 on my 920 and I haven't seen the force close thing. OneNote is working fine. Edge is a speed demon and pages render well.  What build\phone are you seeing those issues on?
  • I have 136 on my 920 too and I see a ton of problems with Edge.  It renders many pages incorrectly and many sites recognize it as an old or unsupported browser (automatically referring the browser to a page that says something like "We no longer support your browser, please log on from a supported browser or a computer to use our site."
  • I can't say I've been to every webpage there is to test Edge or the pages you visit but it sounds like your install is largely incomplete and unfinished. You shouldn't be having the trouble you've having with this build on the same hardware I have. Let me ask you, did you reset and remove everything from your 920, then install 10136?  I think phones like computers running Windows have the same incompatabilies when you introduce a new OS on top of another. The new OS will do what it can to make it work but a lot of systems will be weak and simply not run correctly.  Also,if you do the reset, clean install, I would avoid allowing the store to download all your installed apps and especially those 8.1 settings. WinXM will manage those settings differently so install them seperately. IMHO.
  • Finally pdf have an option to be opened...
  • This has been driving me nuts on the preview build. Not even properly redirecting to the INSTALLED adobe reader.
  • Imagine how polished the build after this will be...
  • The next build could be the build I will use next, after about one or two months with build 10080. Only reason, pdf!
  • That was an issue, but I haven't seen complaints about what I feel is the biggest deficiency, the mail client. There's no live tile, and its horrible compared to the previous mail clients on WP.
  • Hopefully the next build is more stable on the Lumia icon.
  • +Icon
  • +929
  • Weird how people refer to a Verizon Lumia Icon as the 929 making it seem closer to the 928 when it should be considered a 93X device. It should be called the Lumia 930i or Lumia [930] Icon...end rant
  • The only reason why 929 makes sense is because the Icon was released with WP8.0 while the 930 was released with WP8.1 The naming convention (generally) dictates that the tens digit increases with new software versions.
  • Yes please. Mms and voicemail please. Im ready!
  • When I updated my Icon to WP10 all it did was load the main screen. I restored the phone to 8.1  Now it refuses to accept the update from WP10. Lol Smart phone
  • Everything looks good. Adress bar at bottom Microsoft finally heard us. The only ugly thing is the on screen volume control layout. It looks pathetic,ugly horrible. The current one is tons better.
  • Yes, finally someone saw it. It's horrible. But I think it will be retouched. Especially after seeing what they did to app list, am very optimistic.
  • Or else we windows insiders still have to give feedback to them regarding that volume layout.
  • Hopefully this will also be implemented in "tablet mode" (barf) on win10, considering the cross-platform strategy it would be logical.
  • Is it still divided in two toggle ?
  • It all looks clunky and unclean. Current WP 8.1 everything is sharp and bold, clean and consistent. I dunno it might be the spacing or sizes it just looks very offputting to me. Hopefully there will be a gridding and aligning phase with guidelines for some symmetry. I like the features and changes being made its just the UI in its present state is really ugly to me..... But keep on trucking MS devs I have hope you can succeed...
  • Yes sharp and clean. That's the beauty of metro UI. Look at Bing maps while giving directions. They UI designed is impressive while reading route steps and it suits clear black screen devices too.
  • Microsoft, please make it more ugly.
  • So, what's ugly❓
  • The leaked build. Look at the volumes bar and the app list(search bar). 8.1 has it better.
  • Those are beautiful not ugly. Much better thn 8.1
  • Design will be better overtime. They need to focus primary on the functions and capability of Windows 10 Mobile. Apply design and polish whole Windows 10 Mobile will come later. But they are getting there.
  • There are still some rough edges and I'm pretty sure the volume controls will become beautiful. Everything else looks better than 8.1 to me. Please be optimistic and patient, uservoice is efficient and a real tool for MS and this has been proven a lot of times.
  • LMAO, and now the battery icon is even MORE smaller :D
  • Lol yeah! But its style has returned to normal, so I hope that the size is just an issue of resolution problems.
  • Awesome!
  • awesome! :) glad i'll be able to open PDF files!
  • You should be able to now.. with PDF Reader
  • PDF reader is good for viewing hut sending pdf sucks on it. Microsoft or Adobe needs to provide good support for word to PDF on w10 mobile.
  • I'd like to see the all apps list on the start screen be on the left side instead of the right, that way it kinda resembles its desktop counterpart more. Right now it still feels too much like Windows phone 8/8.1. I know Windows 10 mobile isnt meant to have a LOT of radical changes, but to me if they moved the all apps list to the left, it would make it feel different
  • Please submit your suggestion in the Windows Feedback app. I will shamelessly copy your words and paste it too so whomever gets it entered first can just upvote the suggestion. :) Moving All Apps to the left would make it feel like the desktop verision and would definely be in line with the whole One OS theme and how 10 Mobile is taking on 10 dekstop features.
  • I agree. Never thought of it but it makes sense.
  • Ya but that would be a hamburger button.. Which on WP start screen look ugly :/
  • Oh please, don't give them an idea. :P But yeah, I think it make sense if they make the All App list on the left. Also another thing to add, why not put Cortana at the right hand-side instead. It will same alignment as the Windows 10 on tablet/desktop where Cortana is virtually at the right of Start menu.
  • I wish Microsoft would just read these comments. It would save us all some time. How hard would it be to hire a few folks that cruise the internets all in the name of listening to your base. Of course these people would have to have good patience. "You say flagship again and you are dead"... Seriously, they should just publicize that they do it and they should even respond too, if they have info that they can share, then share it.. What's with all this hiding crap, lets be more transparent. All these damn companies are so damn secretive. .. oh yeah, good suggestion..
  • I want a 2nd start screen when I sepe left, my start is full
  • Thanks for all the negativity with alpha builds You could be moaning about why can't we see what you're up like in the old days.SHEEESH
  • They listened!!! Awesome!!!
  • ‎:D
  • I think I will miss IE when final build comes out..
  • this is a good joke :)
  • seriously?? -_-
  • Yes even I. ie 11 was nice and simple. :'(
  • Yup, sharp edges, smooth, simple and fast browser. Really liked IE 11.
  • Looks kinda boring.
  • I'm pleased. Let's hope for more bottom centric UX and rich functionality missing from current iteration of WP.
  • Nice. Might actually have to install this one. Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • 10136 has definitely been a mess for me. Looks better, is more responsive, but feels a lot buggier than 10080. SMS go missing, reboots on phone calls - had to go back to 8.1. Hoping for a new build soon. 
  • Totally agree.  10136 is way buggier on my M8 than the 10080 build was.  Apparently I need to manually reboot my phone in the middle of the day, cause with 10136 the celular and data stop working and there is no warning of a problem.  Just looks like I haven't gotten any calls or texts (not something that happens on a regularly consistant basis so easy not to notice them not coming in).  Tends to freeze for 10 seconds when the notification bar is pulled down, and the beta store sucks.  I keep having apps fail to download (new ones, but mostly updates) and the beta store keeps trying to download constantly.  It ate up a gig of LTE data in less than 2 days without me knowing...until I got a text from T-Mobile saying it was all gone.   I'm really hoping that the new build comes this week, or next, cause I don't think I'll be able to hold out as is much longer before going back to 8.1
  • Yep. My 830 constantly locks up, reboots, etc. Not really much it will do except sit there and look pretty - drawing me back in everytime I look at it and then, BAM reboot. Going back to 8.1 until the next build is released or maybe the one after that. Really looking forward to much more stability.
  • Wow it looks so good. Once again I will roll back to 8.1 and wait for this build on my 920. Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • Waiting intensifies.
  • Hope they've fixed the crashing caused by auto correct from the keyboard
  • Yes!! This is nasty bug. Really waiting for a fix. Drives me nuts.
  • Cool! Hope they bring the Large Square tile back next
  • URL bar at bottom and easily accessible tab button - great change!
  • Ya now wanna c three dots to function like wp .. I.e. Opening downwards than upwards
  • Settings pro app that I use all the time might be redundant with improved action center short cuts. Looking promising after Microsoft job on 8.1 smooth function. Exciting stuff.
  • Sweet! isn't it?
  • Is it an option??? Because I like it on top. Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • That's what she said?
  • lol Dan the man!!! +8XT
  • Hahaha.
  • xD. But srsly though is it an option or not? I'm guessing not.
  • XD Well played!
  • who will claim ladder screen  to touch ,in large screen size devices like 1520
  • Notifications center still not transparent:s
  • I'd like that! That's not a bad idea. Make it like a blurred, dark transparent. Suggest it in the Feedback app (or press power & volume down for feedback)!
  • Why you people have no postponed patients at all
    They did it on windows 10 pc already that means it is coming to Windows 10 mobile is well but you people want all the things at same time
    Have patient my dear friend
    ....
  • I actually not sure about that, we need notification/Action Center that looks clean and having it transparent will be a visual clutter, especially when you already dealing with notifications. I actually don't like on some Android custom UI making their notification transparent.
    But if they will make it blurred same with iOS and on current Windows 10 build (I hope it will be more blurry than currently), then I think it looks cool and fine.
  • Sweet!  Now that's some winning news!
  • Am I the only one annoyed by the font they're using now? It looks especially bad on all the buttons for the quick toggles... Honestly.. can't stand that font.   Guys...... the font..?
  • Same here.. That font looks awful.
  • I hate this font!!! And why are they using small letters? ALL CAPS was good for toggle buttons. :-/
  • Good news that they finally put the address bar down at the bottom but the rest is still a visual mess and that's being kind. Just take a look at that volume controls. Unfinished or not it takes some effort to make something that unattractive. It's like they took 8.1, hollowed out the icons, did some needless rearranging and hit the UI with a shovel.  
  • This kind of things are the last one to the finished, same happening with PC.
  • Completely agree. It is obvious they are going with this wire frame design that reminds me of android. I absolutely despise it.
  • Leia o final do post do Michael , diz que essa versão e quase tão estável quanto a versão final do 8.1
  • Will wait fir the final build
  • I can't believe how ugly is Windows 10 mobile... They ruined the few pretty things w8 had
  • It even ruined your grammar! :D
  • It definitely cannot get any worse. These last two builds were big smelly piles of shit. I can't even login to Windows Central with 10136. And granted, the app hasn't been updated since October of last year. Perhaps that has something to do with it.
  • "And granted, the app hasn't been updated since October of last year. Perhaps that has something to do with it."
    Yeah, the fact that our app works on WP7, 7.5, 8, 8.1, 8.1 Update 1 and 8.1 Update 2 is negated by the fact that it stopped working on a beta build of an OS that is still in the early/rough stages of development. I mean, it couldn't possibly be this build of the OS, no way! That's the ticket! SMH Also, I have mentioned elsewhere that our new universal app is due in late August. Not that it affects this issue.
  • Yeay !
    That's a great news.... ^_^
  • But these are nice improvements
  • I dont like the address bar on the bottom or top, move it to center.
  • Oh yeah, that's the stuff. And make it about 200 pixels thicker. For "touch-friendly orientation."
  • Lmao :D
  • Inability to add other keyboards, additional email accounts, and slow performance in general, are what keeping me away form installing it on my main device yet.
  • I have two emails accounts.
  • I have four and they work fine.
  • Are they outlook ones? Because I have same issue....
  • Ugly Music icon, please get rid of that!
  • Agreed, very ugly music icon
  • Same.
  • Lovely music icon
  • The new icon looks more like a vinyl or a CD. It's a bit weird decision rather than just stick to more recognizable icon like music note or even headset. Especially the fact that Music app on desktop doesn't even support playing CD/DVD.
  • They need to fix battery omn lumia 930 it was and is really bad whichmade me go back to 8.1 after 10136
  • Dear Microsoft Thank you for becoming a company that listens and responds. Thank You
  • Hopefully the tiles are more responsive. There's still noticable lag from touch to launch compared to 8.1.
  • Looks better. They are starting to polish some UI elements which is always welcome. Like the new all apps layout. Love the address bar location (no more wasted space).
  • Fark yeah!!!
  • Windows 10 Mobile is looking great. There's still some glaring ommissions in design and functionality and obviously plenty of bugs to work out but it's coming along great. Microsoft Edge improvements are great...but option would be nice. I, personally, like it at the bottom, but there's nothing wrong with having the ability to change it.
  • You know, I can see valid reasons to have it at the bottom but no valid reasons to have it at the top. Options are fine but there needs to be some use-case to justify them. In this case, I really can't see any justifiation at all.
  • I think W10 Mobile is in much better shape than Windows 10 itself. Yes, there are a lot more bugs that need to be squashed but at least it is moving forward, where W10 is going the other way. I'm already using W10 Mobile on my daily driver and I can't wait for the RTM version, whereas I have no intention of putting W10 on any of my PCs until they can come up with something that is better than W8. Going by its current state, that could be a long, long time.
  • Sure. Windows 10 Mobile is in much better shape. Sure. How can you even say that. It's a mess. Lot of function is missing or not working correctly. Design elements are not even half way done. Start screen is working like shit and yeah i'm using it on my daily driver L930 (clean install 10136 without backup). Windows 10 desktop on the otherhand is quite usable on PC without much of problems and yes there are bugs, but they are almost done, so in July RTM version would be awesome, but mobile build will still be half way there.
  • Is there any full screen mode in edge?
  • Let me install this on my 8X please God
  • oh my... thanks Microsoft, finally showing some mercy to us wp fans and our wishes
  • It's useless thing, of w10 phone can't be used for my main phone daily activities.
  • What did you expect? Wait for the final build.
  • Seriously, the problem to select one default App for open something from WP8.1 is still in W10 Mobile... I cannot believe it!!!
  • Putting the address bar at the bottom is great, however, they should consider giving us the option of putting the address bar at the top or bottom AND putting the same options on the the desktop. I actually liked the IE address bar at the bottom in Windows 8. I also liked the look of the modern IE in Windows 8.
  • I really hope we get to choose how many rows of quick actions we have, and customize those rows. Four rows is kind of ridiculous, especially when a lot of people won't use half of them.
  • Address bar in the middle for me! And make the keyboard consistent, for munhu's sake...
  • 10080 build user directly jump to 10149?
  • Oh I love the new letter picker in the 4th image. It reminds me of my Zune HD!
  • Who need "Screenshot" toggle in action centre..........
    Plz feedback it....
    I hope we all want this toggle.
  • Now we can die in peace -_-
  • I like windows 10 Mobile. Loved it using it for a day. But address bar at bottom on edge is not what I care or find important. There are many awesome things that need polish but I liked address bar on top. And it doesn't get moved when keyboard is shown like happens on IE today. Not big deal but I hate looking at it and them Boom in other place because keyboard pushed it up.
  • Adress bar at top is not usable for devices with larger screen, you could argue with "reachability" feature. But that will push half of the screen down and other half is not used, so you are not seeing any content. It makes much more sense for adress bar to be at bottom for user experience. Control should be always at the bottom on large smartphones. You want to switch tab or reload page ? Why would you try to find that command at the top of the screen ? Just doesn't make any sense.
  • After downgrade to 8.1 now I am waiting for PFD release.too much buggy now;(
  • I don't think there will be any Preview for Developer. Sadly.
  • Thank you Microsoft!!!!
  • MY BODY IS SO READY!!!!!!!;
  • Death to the gray background!
  • Skype crash it's in the 520 slow as hell, the browser address bar at the bottom, is fine just makes easier watch the whole site instead of the bar at top and getting it watch each time you watch up the site
  • too many options on the expanded view.  Personally 2 rows of buttons would be more than enough for me to chose from.
  • What about the laggy start screen. This is a real probleum.
  • For the people that say they like the address bar at the top, I think they'll soon realise its bad usability when they actually start to use the browser dozens of times a day. At least Microsoft can provide the option to set the address bar location that would be ideal
  • This will please a lot of people. I'm ok with top or bottom, tbh.
  • Why are the status bar icons all different sizes? The battery icon is so damn tiny.
  • Windows 10 mobile sucks....
    Long life to Windows phone
  • Right now (Insider Preview 10136) it sucks more than a Windows Phone. But will get better overtime. Windows 10 Mobile will be at the end so so much better than Windows Phone. You'll see.
  • I hope the have been working on hey!! Cortana and Cortana live tile too. ALSo I hope I the next build that don't get an error "can only view or add to calendar from PC or phone". This is the error message that I am getting when I ask Cortana to show my full calendar for the week or day
  • I'm I the only one getting this Error Code 80072f8f each time I check for Updates on Windows Phone 8.1. If Any one knows a workaround, please let me know
  • i want double height live tile
  • we need transparent notification centre not black background like the 8.1
  • Best news ever!
  • We need open links in background tabs
  • Nice but what about send button? Do the still use the ugly "Android" versions? I want do old one! And i want be able to change zoom level i edge like i can on tabkets and desktops awesome feature for making bad mobile sides more usable espacially i landscape mode.
  • Yeaaah.... Thanks Microsoft love you..... Please also remove that hamburger menu.
  • Why Microsoft loves purple and dark blue.
  • Guys don't you think fb integration in wp and square pics for contacts was awesome...ms is just worsening it's people app....the fb integration was the reason i could show off my wp to my frnzz..and it was awesome too..
  • Facebook integration in People hub continue to work as expected. Because it's done via app model (Facebook app). You have to install Facebook app and connect it to your People hub. Everything get's synced and work as you know. Square vs round that is really a question, but my personal experience is that you'll get used to it. I didn't link round pics, but i get used to it and now i don't care :-)
  • Well round contact photo I think is fine, quite refreshing to look at and if done right it actually does look good. What I just don't like the implementation of it is on the area where the contact photo should shine.
    Example on Calling screen and on Incoming Call screen, contact photo is better if it fills every space as possible (near fullscreen) since in context it is the person is the focus of the current task, similar to current UI on WP8.1 calling and incoming call screen. Even latest Android and iOS version adopted full-screen contact photo on call screen, while Android have a nicer UI for its Peoples/Contacts app where contact photo isn't circular but a banner-like. Windows 10 is unfortunately just use the round contact image everywhere and it looks odd and sometimes ugly on some areas.
  • Great!!! Thanks MS!!
  • Looking better, slowly getting closer to the point where I'd accept having it on my phone when it finally releases (I'm not getting involved with the TP). Still don't really like the background image on the start screen myself, it loses that classic WP feel, but as long as the tile skin option is available then I'll be happy. Edge looks much better now, much more like IE for WP which I have always liked. Battery icon could do with being bigger, though, and the notification icon looks disproportionate to the other symbols, but hopefully these'll be sorted out as they're quite minor changes.
  • Wow, the letters in the app list look beautiful!
  • I never thought I'd see the day where they ignore the other platforms' bad usability design and listen to their community when designing W10! Happy times :)
  • Yeah! You are right!
  • God Sake! The Browser looks perfect. I missed the Buttons for the tabs. The IE11 from in WP8.1 is nearly perfect. Just add more compatibily and Speed.
  • Anyone notice the breakdown of the battery usage into System, Display, Wi-Fi? A nice thing to have IMO, the more details the better
  • They are listening afterall.
  • ... Swiftly shaping, as glorious flagship hardware awaits the launch.
  • Fake pic,,, there isn't any app named "nokia camera" presently its "Lumia camera"
  • Still laggy as fuck
  • Lagfest! Agree!
  • ON SCREEN BUTTON! Please... i am so depressed L730 OSB is so buggy
  • Finally cellular data toggle is back..
  • cellular data toogle is back, flash light toggle, edge browser, address bar in bottom.. great
  • It's almost like a second screen with tiles, only they're not live ;)
  • I just want Microsoft to add an option for hiding apps that can directly hide apps from the menu not like kids corner or app corner
  • Assuming August Windows 10 mobile insider update is fine for update.
  • Seems faster
  • Nice news but haven't hear about any improvement from Lumia camera?
  • Pls improve the people hub and dial pad function to search people contact thru number.
  • i can use 2 hands this isn't a big deal to me.
  • Guys i notice Dialpad at the top, how do you all feel about that? , I'm gonna test it on a lumia 535 that's coming shortly to test it out
  • Outstanding news!
  • i hope we are also able to change/edit things like  Mobile 1, Mobile 2, Work 1 etc on contacts to our own likings,for example i may not want to save my friend's wife's phone number as a contact on its own but i would want to save it under her husband's name and able to change Mobile 2 to just Wife
  • I just wish they make a nice pdf reader that has smart zoom on double tap
