Hands-on with Windows 10 Mobile build 10536!

Microsoft surprised many of us by releasing the newest version of Windows 10 Mobile for Insiders on the Fast ring. Although this build is long overdue, we were expecting Microsoft to push it out on Tuesday the 15th, so nice to see it get out in the wild.

After about a 90-minute installation, we have been able to use build 10536.1004 and are liking the improvements. Here is our hands-on video walkthrough of what is new and some quick first impressions!

Additionally, here are our notes from updating a few devices to this build:

  • Going from build 10512 you need to install build 10514 and 10536.1001; after which another update of 10536.1004 will be delivered.
  • This release is a slow update! We spent upwards of 90 minutes updating some of our phones with some erratic status indicators e.g., 0% for a very long time and then a sudden jump to a much higher number. Best to maybe update the phone and let it do its things for a few hours
  • The OS feels smoother and snappier although I would not say Microsoft is quite there just yet, there is still room for improvement
  • Quiet hours and mobile hotspot are working as they should
  • The lockscreen delay is gone, and it feels just right on our Lumia 1520
  • Photos app is better with some context menus (press and hold) and better pinch to zoom. Once again, performance is still not there for us. Even on higher end devices performance is much better but not amazing, so we are hoping to see more
  • Microsoft Edge feels relatively the same with blank white screens instead of proper loading ones

Overall, it's a good update but not exactly wow-worthy either. After all, there are no new features (besides the Photos app), just lots of fixes for existing problems. That is not a knock against Microsoft; it is just something to keep in mind. The best case scenario here is your Windows 10 Mobile device will feel almost as okay as your Windows Phone 8.1 one.

Hey, no one said remaking an OS was easy.

As to the million-dollar question: Is it good enough for daily use? We'll revisit that tomorrow after we had some more time actually to use our phones, including some impressions about battery life and any other issues. Stay tuned!

For now, let us know what you think about the update and flag anything we should pay attention to in the morning (for us, at least).

More coverage!

Need even more? Here is all you need to know, including some of our helpful guides to get you through this process!

  • Still at 0%
  • Mine was stuck at 0% for a long time too, just leave it on the charger and go do something else for an hour.
  • Mine is a slow connection at 4mbps...
  • How abt 100 kbps? (mine)
  • And also, do not overload the router playing Candy Crush (Soda) Saga! Or watching Youtube
  • Ha, I ended up flashing back to 8.1 cause i thought it had an update glitch. Took waaay too long and now i know i should have just been patient and let it stay at 0% for a while.
  • I had to restart my L930 to get it to work. I was also stuck at 0%. Now seems to be making progress...40%
  • I left it updating overnight and after 11 hours it was still at 0% on a lumia 1520.  Finally, at the 11th hour, it jumped up to 84%, 85% and then said preparing to install updates.  when the phone hit 7% at preparing to install, it notified me to restart to install the update.  I restarted and it is installing even though it still said 7%. The one thing I did which could be completely coincidental is free up space on my phone by deleting and moving apps, deleting maps, etc.  I started at around 3.6 gb of free space and was closer to 6 when I got done deleting stuff.  Around that time is when the update dl/preparing for update really started to move.  
  • putting the screen time-out to "Never" worked for me. not sure if it would work for all.
  • At least found the update available....
  • Lol
  • My Lumia 925 stuck at 0% for many hours until now. From morning to noon still 0%. Anyone experienced the same thing?
  • I left mine all night and never saw any progress when I unlocked it in the morning it said it was at 0% then jumped to the restart screen. They probably just didn't bother fixing the progress tracker for this build but it will install eventually.
  • same for me!  Try freeing up space on your phone storage.  Once I got over 5 GB free it seemed to move pretty fast.
  • Youre ryt:P my speed is less than a 160 mbites, its gonna take me the whole day i know that:/
  • Haha!! this guy here ^^^^
  • Mine stayed that way for almost 30 minutes and then jumped up to 60%. It was kinda random.
  • It seems like the lock screen is to blame
  • 0% progress or usability? ... or both?  </rhetoric> It's CRAP - usability = 0%
  • Still "Loading.........." on my Lumia Icon..........cmon man, I got sick of unstable ROM's on Android, and I'm really starting to get sick of the unstable Windows ROM's beta or not
  • Seems faster. Sorry. That won't happen again.
  • Actually, if everything goes well, it'll happen again, haha.
  • "Seems faster" said the man as he was driving downhill on a steep road....... towards a cliff!
  • Ummmmmmmmmmm,this damn build is fast as Shiznit!!! It really is... Especially with photos.. Bout damn time!
  • Yeah it is.
  • Since "shiznit" is a made up adolescent word, and not real at all, it must, therefore, not be very fast at all. 
  • Most adolescent are faster, and most sports players reach their prime in speed and agility before they hit mid age, we all know Ms is mid age so it's nice to see adolescent here
  • It's been daily driver worthy for me for the past two builds.
  • Same here. But I guess that just means we have a little patience. :-)
  • You're more patient than I am. So far every version is shit as far as I'm concerned. Not one release of Windows 10 mobile is even close to as good as 8.1.
  • Go back to 8.1 this is for people who wanna give feedbacks.
  • So just cause he thinks 8.1 is way more stable he can't possible be giving feedback and actually shouldn't even use it?? Nice logic... Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • no he said that cause he actually got mad that the os system has problems? like duh its preview thats why we need feedback if you cant on your daily drive then w8 for the RTM be patient :3
  • You can say "Thattagain"
  • Agreed
  • But!
  • Maybe that's because 8.1 is a released OS and 10 is in preview stage still under development?
  • This build on my M8 is good enough for a daily. So far nothing is a deal breaker. If it gets better from here on, this will be a very solid OS.
  • Do you have a reliable start screen and responsive on screen buttons? Both of those drove me back to 8.1
  • Yes to both. So far everything I have loaded on my phone works just fine. Maybe it's also due to the fact of the 801 proc in my phone helps with speed.
  • Unfortunately, I still have start screen problems on my 920. How many tiles do you have pinned to your start?
  • It hasn't been for me on my 1020. The "Loading..." message is shown repeatedly as it tries to load the start screen again and again. I'm sure hard flashing it and keeping the default tiles is the answer (other than Microsoft fixing the bug that has been around forever). Thankfully I use another phone as my daily driver.
  • Same on my 920. Still loading for the start screen. I'm not planning on removing any of my tiles so I'll once again hold off on loading it back on my One again.
  • Start screen has no lag now, and by what ik of, the buttons are fine
  • I use the M8 as a daily driver. I'll give it a shot, again, tomorrow. I really want to use the preview more.
  • This is the first build of WM10 I have ever loaded on my M8. Download and install for me was under an hour. Surprisingly. Once it rebooted, the only thing missing was IE, so I replaced my tile with Edge, which works pretty well.
  • It's great. I only need Htc Dot View working on this preview version
  • I really wish I seen your comment earlier. I installed 10, immediately checked if the dot view case and double tap to wake worked, but obviously not. When the cover is closed then reopened there is a yellow border. Kind of annoying, but 10 is already on it so I will test it for a week like prior builds then revert back to 8.1.
  • I am also experiencing the yellow border and I am noticing my tiles flickering. I do have the dot view case also. If I take the case off and reboot the phone, the border goes away. When I put the case back on and lock and unlock the phone the border comes back.
  • Why don't the geniuses at WC do a hands-on of the build running on some low-end device? I mean, wouldn't that be a better indicator of the stability of the build? If it can run well on a 520, it shouldn't have much problems on a 1520.
  • Fair point. I wouldn't mind a quick feedback on high and low end devices. W10 runs drastically different on the newer quad core devices vs the older dual core devices. It still pretty sketchy on my 1020 as of the last build. It ran decent on my 1520 and I sold that months ago... Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • Point taken but there's a tactful way of suggesting this without insulting everyone. No need for that.
  • I think the same. NL 535 or 730 with the latest build will be nice. As most of the market share of wp is by low n mid range devices. It will give more lucrative n relatable hands-on.
  • It would be nice to see a side by side comparison of a low and high end, opening photos etc... At the same time. Posted via the Windows Central App for Android because I am unfortunately with Sprint
  • Scanning those photos to see what leaks you might be hiding lol
  • His family picts i think
  • That a Crackberry Kevin nude I see? Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • anyone having issue its been 1hr and still at 0% got 3mpbs internet.
  • Well, the article says to maybe let it do its things for a few hours, so you should probably just leave it alone for a few hours and not worry about it
  • Mine is 25mbps and its still 31% from past 1 and a half hr. So, I guess u better start with ur daily chores n all check ur phone before u sleep ;)
  • Does this build preserve the start screen settings like apps and tiles from 8.1?
  • Yup. At least it did for me. Preserved everything including settings.
  • Awesome! Thanks
  • To my surprise, yes. I was thinking 'reset time' but I have not needed to.
  • MINOR Edge improvements? -_-  Come on...
  • HTC8X Start screen only countless rebooting.
  • Yup, I wish I could have warned you.  It seems to do it at random intervals as well.
  • The recovery tool can't locate software for the phone BRICK
  • I had the same issue, but just keep doing a soft reset and it will eventually finish booting. Be prepared for extrememly small text though.
  • Thanks for the info. I will probably leave it on 8.1 just for old times sake. I've got another one with a slightly messed up screen running 8.0 still. #neverforget
  • Does yours reboot randomly and have you tried resetting it?
  • Yes it was rebooting randomly when it was stuck at the installation screen, but everything started working after I did a factory reset. (holding volume down while phone is rebooting and then inputting button combo.) It now successfully loads into Windows 10 Mobile, but the font size is very small. I'll most likely try to downgrade it tomorrow.
  • Done the same. And everything worked great until soft reset. Then it started random reboots again (5-10 minutes if locked, 2-3 minutes if in work).
  • That's because Windows10 is yet to be supported for your phone.GabeAul mentioned in his tweet.Don't worry,flash back 8.1,thats the only way :) let me know if it works follow @gabeaul on twitter
     
  • 90 minutes? My 640 still updating after 4 hours! :D
  • Ouch
  • Same here on lumia 730, 4 hour and still going, at least wheels are spinning now :)
  • Ps. My phone's not seeing the update yet. Patience is a virtue, right?
  • I had the same problem. Fixed it by re-running Insider app. OK Now. Posted via the WPC App for Android!
  • Yeah, patience until LAUNCH day my friend. What you're missing is the integer that is seated snugly inbetween -0 and +1
  • Tried doing an integral.... Undefined. Lol
  • Can I upgrade to these updates using Mobile Data ?
  • Unless you have unlimited data, I wouldn't recommend it. Just use your WiFi and you're good to go.
  • It is running fine in my 830. Dirty updated from 8.1 and all apps are running fine. If it stays like that I'll be using it daily
  • How's battery life?
  • it will also run on lumia 1320???
  • No way.
  • Sweet... Will try on my 625 first which I am testing the update on. If all good will look at running the TP on my 1320. Then I'll be nicking my Mums 930 and trying it on that! :-)
  • Yes, I have it running on my 1320.
  • Can you please tell if the project astoria work or not?
  • please help
  • What's the problem, are you stuck down a well?
  • Favorite pinned contacts are live now!
  • What does that mean? They were before, just no notifications.
  • Contacts dance like in people tile now. I did receive notification on tile.
  • So no useful features like notifications or history but they dance?
  • Can I have a ME Tile?
  • So very thankful we now have an actual albums view (folder view) in the Photos app. It was so annoying trying to find pics when sorted by date. Anybody else having the constant OneDrive crash problem now?
  • I update but my photos app is still the same. No folders option or long press for menu.
  • same here  
  • I had the same problem. Then i checked and there was a update for photos app in the store and after that it is working fine.
  • Make sure the app itself updated as well. I had a bunch of apps updating after
  • Be interesting to see if this build degrades. 512 was running fine on my 830 for about 2 weeks then degraded to the point that I had to revert to 8.1. Others were having this problem as well...and not just the 830, it seems. Guessing it is a small subset of users though.
  • It's the new WP10 experience. This way it'll be more familiar for people migrating from Android. (Sorry. I couldn't resist.)
  • I pulled the trigger and ran it on my 925. It ran great with only a few issues such as the loading screen lag and slightly lower battery life with my Bluetooth on contacted to either my headset or my car.
  • It could be related to memory... what they've been able to correct on desktops may be different on mobile hardware and needing specific firmware updates..? =[
  • Just noticed that the ability to disable 'show more tiles' is back, and it actually works, bringing back two column, big tiles. I'm on the Lumia 830 and I don't know how long that's been available, but that's a nice option. 
  • Hooray! Be interested to see on my mid size phone...
  • Just noticed that the ability to disable 'show more tiles' is back, and it actually works, bringing back two column, big tiles
      Brilliant! I recently upgraded to a 640 from a 630 and the extra cols but smaller tiles really threw me. Being able to disable that in 10 counts as a big *new* feature for me.
  • Yeah, when I got my 830 I wasn't to happy about the 3 columns. The small tiles were really small. I looked for a setting to set back to 2 columns and there wasn't one on Windows 8.1. I since have rearanged all my tiles and folders for the 3 column screen. It took quite a while to get the way I now like it. I'll have to try the 2 column setting when the update finishes and see if I like it better. Am I willing to go through the effort to rearange everything again?  Maybe I'm to particular about my start screen... :)
  • My One M8 says .1004   Runs damn smooth though. I'm liking it.
  • Yeah, that's what I am trying to download now after the first set of updates happened, so I was abit confused when Daniel says .4000 1520.3 here  
  • I tried a manual 'update' and it claims I'm current, so......
  • Yeah, I think he just transcribed some numbers!
  • That new long press menu ...  did they forget that phones are phones and not PCs?
  • My guess it will allow for easier porting of IOS apps as they add support for force touch.  Force touch produces similar menus.
  • I can FINALLY upgrade my Lumia 435 to Windows 10 Mobile and it is running fantastically well, even with 18 apps updating in the background.  Previous builds were not installable on all 435s and Gabe Aul said the 435 would be able to be upgraded in the future, well today, atleast for me, is that day! The 435 with Windows 10 is an incrdible value to get some of the latest software features in the Microsoft ecosystem!
  • Yeah, it is the day! For me too...
  • Strange that the photos app is still the only one to ditch the hamburger menu. This, late its likely other apps won't be changed meaning yet more inconsistencies. But at least they are consistent about that.....
  • Ya leave hamburger and work on Windows swipe menu
  • I admit it guys, kinda miss wp. I wanna join I the fun too. Let's get my 1520 updated!
  • You only live once lol
  • Edge renders partial pages significantly quicker.  Not sure if overall page comes any faster but you can interact sooner.
  • That is extremely welcome. That was my one big gripe with Edge vs IE. How long it took to start rendering. Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • Is the print option supported yet?
  • I've been able to print directly from my 640 XL, so yeah I think its supported. You just need to be on the same wifi network that your printer is connected... I guess.
  • My 735 has problems updating. First it took a lot of time in preparing update and got some error. Then I did hard reset and tried to update again, this time it took much less time preparing, and at 90% updating it restarted and it is now in boot loop to the gears. I'm taking it now to the WPRT, will see later if I can upgrade it successfuly.
  • Messaging Skype Preview is greyed out for me. See if an update gets pushed out or maybe it'll just start up again... Also Edge is still not asking for log in credentials on some websites, just going directly to the "access denied" sceen.      
  • On the previous build Messaging Skype PReview would not work for me til I hard-reset and redownloaded. Just saying
  • I had the Skype issue as well. Soft reset solved it.
  • I like it. but still I wish RTM would come sooner.
  • That would be short after they announce the devices on Oct. 6th
  • FINALLY FOLDERS ARE BACK IN THE PHOTOS APP!
    sorry
  • The point is can we manage and organize them without going to file manager...... So that's not possible.. That means photos app is still poorer than beta app of an android phone.. That's true..
  • I updated back when 10136 rolled out (I think... it was the first week of July), and my WiFi would not turn on (sorry for racking up the data, mom!) and my GroupMe conversations would not open. I've since rolled back to 8.1, but has anybody else experienced either of these problems in the most previous builds? GroupMe is essential to my MGMT project and, obviously, WiFi is sort of a big deal!  
  • Connectivity was a huge issue for me back in July!
  • Please show these mobile builds on a low end device like 640 or 640 xl ,it will be smooth on higher end devices which is quite obvious now Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • Does Edge still suck balls? Haven't had a chance to update yet myself.
  • No, but it's quite useful if you want to browse the internet. If you need tennis court equipment, use Bing... 
  • So in this build it's now useful for browsing the internet? That is a change from previous builds.
  • I am on windows 8.1 on Lumia 525. I installed windows insider 2 days back and its asking to install build 166. I want to directly update to new build.. How can I do that?? I have already bricked my phone during upgradation process from 166 to 512 last time..
  • You will directly go to build 10536 if you are coming from 8.1. Gabe Aul announced that the single hops from 8.1 to the latest 10 Mobile build are back working. I updated my Lumia 435 from 8.1 directly to build 10536 without any issues.
  • For the first time I am liking Windows 10 on mobile. 
  • "I am liking"   Because the phrase "I like" was too short, simple and effective? ;)
  • Or "I am going to like" thing? :)
  • Using "liking" to mean "enjoying" is okay for informal usage. I heard people using this word when they ususally don't like something and suddenly enjoy it. I know it's not grammatically correct. :)
  • Or, maybe he is not liking your comment, or to make it short, simple, and effective, one could just simply say, ahole.
  • Is there things missing if you update to windows 10 mobile? Did I read somewhere Cortana doesn't work?
  • It works on my M8. Have yet to hear from others.
  • Cortan works on my Lumia 435, 830, 1020, M8 for Windows and Lumia 1520 and has always worked for me since the first build.
  • Is Cortan the male version of Cortana?
  • While it should work. If you have an international device there is a "chance" it will not work and you will get an error downloading the language pack (can be fixed by hard resetting your device for some). Couldn't get it to work for my German Lumia 1020 even with the latest build (installing English).
  • USB EEM doesn't seem to stick when I back out of it on my 920. Hmm...
  • Why is the list menue of all apps so small???  in 8.1 its larger font ?? i don't like that :(...... the keyboard also seems a bit smal or is it me?? yeah its a long way of 8.1 standards me thinks.. 
  • Is it still on the right? They need to match... =/
  • I hv installed insider preview and chosen slow ring. Pls let me know when this update will be avalable for slow ring. I m still on 8.1 n not installed windows mobile 10.
    Can I stop showing upadtes available
  • So there's no transparent action centre just like the pc version....
  • I'm on 10536.1004, am I screwed?
  • .1004 is the latest version. .1003 was the version with the upgrade blocking bug.
  • From the pictures Os looks lot polished I hope so does the new phones.
  • Seems faster. Can't imagine what Microsoft would be going through if I as a user is afraid of W10 mobile launch not going smoothly.
    But then again, polish, smoothness and fluidity are of no use if it cripples platform's development capabilities like what happened with WP8/8.1. If it gives developers enough power and ease to make apps as good as iOS and Android, and if those apps actually happen, then I might be okay with a not so polished OS in the start. But then again, if it doesn't happen, I don't think Microsoft cares enough to make it work for
  • I'm actually afraid that W10M at launch might be similar situation to Windows 10 RTM at launch, it won't all go smoothly which is pretty much unacceptable to mobile devices where the OS is pretty might tied up to the hardware, thus potentially cause bricking. Unlike PC where we can easily reinstall the OS safely and officially. Also Windows Phone got a nice repuatation of pretty stable, reliable and smooth mobile OS which is akin to iOS-like but with diversified hardware (not as much as Android though), unlike Android varies with device you got (some are crap some are okay). There is a good chance that W10M will loose the repuatation of reliable and smooth OS.
  • I didn't have a problem with RTM so maybe some but not all might have issues... everyone's different
  • True.. Example is MS didn't give permission for developers for background taking and downloading...
  • hey! what about on lumia 920?
  • working nicely on mine, better than last one :3
  • I think my Lumia 930 took about 3 hours to completely update. Quiet Hours is fixed. Some new setting called zStorage is present but when clicked it goes back to the Start screen. Still checking other stuff out.
  • Still wating to for updates, it's taken 3 hours.
  • still 1 % in one hour
  • How many approximately size in this update?
  • 219 kilobytes.
  • Well, it took a while but the upgrade worked well on my 1520. Decided not to hard reset this time around and will see how it goes. So far everything seems more fluid and ,yes, seems... Snappier! The only issue I noticed so far is a screen flicker of I switch from multitasking view to the home screen. The rest seems a lot more stable now. Looks like daily driver quality to me. Funny thing, the only app that now shows terrible lag is the Windows Central app.
  • Lol
  • This build is trash, so is every build that preceeded it. When you go to task switcher and then tap homescreen, it glides back... wait for ittt...... AND THEN JUMPS, clunkily into place. Also the weird text is back... WHAT? STILL? Nowhere NEAR ready. And they're pushing this junk out in a month or two? Yhah... no.  Look...  Had a play for 15 mins and then COULDN'T WAIT to flash back 8.1 into my 640 XL. UGH!
  • What do you mean? I've been using it in my 640 XL daily and its just great, some bugs which are acceptable, but nothing made me even want to go back to 8.1
  • Yeah i wasn't that thrilled going back cant use this daily id go nuts, maybe changes will happen with final. I might go android again not to keen on this 10, can i keep 8.1 forever if i want it???
  • Yes, just don't ever update. Win 10 is a mess. Sold my 830 and running a G Flex 2 now. I do want to come back someday, but it seems that MS is more intent on taking over Android screens with all the apps then they are actually releasing a decent phone OS. If they would have started all this many years ago they would have it nailed, but playing the catch-up game isn't working so well for them.
  • You should of gave it more time, In the first 15 after that update likely was doing some things in the background like updating other apps or other things. My 1020 was slow for the first minutes or so and now is as good as it was with 8.1. If your going beta test, need to be more patient. :)
  • You sound like me, I can't stand an OS that's buggy, that's why I never adopt until at least service pack 1 in older versions.
  • Or, you know, the actual release of the product...
  • I agree, it's like they are just stringing users along until they figure it out themselves.
  • Look at this CRAP: https://pbs.twimg.com/media/CO6RomlWIAAYpVk.png
  • Dang! What's that thing? Looks like a text-rendering issue of some sort. Please send it to the feedback and other channels to Microsoft immediately. It looks like an underlying issue with the OS and there might be more.
  • Change your language from elvish to human.
  • If I had to guess the string that hasn't been included in the local language set and this is a technique used to identify that for developers yet make the interface navigatable.
  • Kool!
  • I couldnt't see any new update when I tried to find it out through phone updates .. What to do ?
  • Hey, i just update my lumia 730 from 8.1. But the sd cannt be found? Have anyone had this trouble?
  • Screen now goes off when charging
  • Still waiting on the return of glance screen and Cortana feed to fit across 1520 screen
  • I think this is positive, but after some problems that I had with previous builds. I go back to W8.1. I will try again when they release a better and more stable experience (near the final product) I hope next month.
  • So many problems that I doubt it will be fixed next month.
  • Seems slower on my Lumia 830. Also has some app issues that likely require hard reset but I'll do that tomorrow.
  • What apps? I downloaded it on my 1020 and I don't have alot of apps on it. I want to download 10 on my M8 which has alot of apps. For instance, the AT&T app and device help won't open. Also, this build is faster on my 1020.
  • I never got "loading" no start screen and now I do.  Resuming is much faster no doubt.  One app in particular called pof for dating shows its installed but when i press it goes to the store to update, update fails and can't uninstall it as it's grayed out.  
  • Installing once again.. I hope this time I won't go back to 8.1
  • Running well on my 640.
  • Does camera still takes sometime to load?
  • hey...how much time it has taken for you 640. becuuse i also got 640 and am waintng from last 1.5 hour still at 0%. thanx.
  • It took me close to 2 hours on the 640. But was a waste of time with more problems then the build before. Back to 8.1
  • HTC One M8 - has sat at 0% for over 10 hours. Tried reboot - still no progress. Will just let it sit I guess.
  • I've been postponing to ask: Why "Quiet Hours" is tied to Cortana? While Cortana feels like more into providing deep Bing and regional services, Quiet Hours seems like a function everyone would use... :-/
  • Yep i need mine also, so had to roll it back..i like it but geez menue font needs an increase.
  • This is the byproduct of the engineering team being keyboard+mouse first users.  They've completely ruined the Windows Runtime UX layer by redesigning it for the Win10 desktop and then porting it to the phone build.  Everything feels cramped and out of place.   They made the dialer bigger in this build, so that's something.
  • Updating to build 10536 from last 1/2 hours still it is 0%
  • Looks good and really seems faster overall. But there's a bit of lag/pause with the screen screen right after the lockscreen.
  • Sounds a good news!!! Looks like a worthy to try out with less issues, I have to wait any news about any serious announced bugs though. But yeah looks like I can try W10M if all pretty much reliable. Lockscreen issue looks finally fixed, which is annoying before. The hold-down context menu is something I'm not fond of, its too desktop-like and doesn't blend well with the OS for some reason. It feels kind unfished implementation or something I'm not able to explain, feels not too right. I hope they will try to clean-up those menu, especially sub-menu which looks a messy UI for a phone and tablet device. It doesn't really need a pop-up style menu, rather just a touch-friendly menu that looks rather sleek looking, something page-like or sub-menu overlays on top like a stacked cards that shows hierarchy. I'll check for any news about this before I decide to install, which is also pretty long as Daniel states.
  • Mine was at 0% for close to 2 hours. Now it's at 32% and been stuck there for 15 min. So yea, patience is a virtue.
  • Mine took 3 hrs to go through all the updates :p
  • Fixed my problems in Edge from the last build. The photos app is a great improvement, but will remain to be seen if the camera saves any faster. I have been using WP10 in my daily driver since July, so the improvements are drastic, mostly performance. I'll know more later after a refresh on the charge and the long ride home.
  • It is so simple, but I really love the way apps open now. The way the start screen flys towards you looks much better than the "flip left" motion of wp 8.1 And great to see the improved speed when navigating the UI and opening apps.  Overall it's looking sharp. 
  • 0% ....
  • I have reverted it back to 8.1 from the past build.only bug fixes in new build.damm..i wont install it until we get some translucent action center n when making calls the caller pic should be full screen. Will wait till some visual wonder happens inside the OS
  • Is anyones project Astoria apps working after upgrade?  Mine load, say they are setting up and crash.  I may try reloading them tomorrow.I
  • I have exactly the same problem. After a few tries, it also causes the home buttons to freeze / become non responsive and cannot launh any other app afterwards as well.  
  • I didn't know that microsoft apps (weather, mail, photos) rotate when we switch to landscape mode. Is this new with this update?
  • No
  • 2 hours 2% wow
  • Same here... Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • I still can't figure out why when the start screen gets in a loop clicking the Windows button 10 times rapidly then clicking power off/on fixes the start screen. Still happens on the latest build, it's the one bug that I find perplexing. 7-8 seconds startup for the Lumia 1020's camera also (that might be normal).
  • Holy mole...they have a lot of work ahead of them to release in November.
  • My calender is blank on the live tile.
  • I need win centrals internet connect 2 hours and 0% this end.. I echo the above wow..
  •   Bricked my 920.  In a constant loop rebooting, showing sad face and dies. Restore to 8.1 tomorrow and try again. I have run every build since the previews started, but this is the first to brick my phone. 
  • So no one noticed the poster on the wall in the article?.... Lol, bunch of nerds we are.
  • "Going from build 10512 you need to install build 10514 and 10536.1001; after which another update of 10536.1004 will be delivered. That last one is very important as the xx536.1000 build is the one with the update blocking bug" Um.. isnt this wrong?  I'm updating and went through the first two updates and im sitting on build 10536.1000 and waiting for 10536.1004. In your other post, you quote Aul as saying that is the proper build order.. but this post caused confusion for me because it says the opposite, and will therefore probably confuse others as well. I'd like clarification as my phone has been downloading 10536.1004 at 0% for over two hours now.. so if 10536.1000 is really the build upgrade blocker(as you're saying here), then I should stop wasting my time and revert to 8.1 so i can get 10536.1004            
  • He's wrong. The one with blocking bug was 1003.
  • Oh thankfully, as I received .1000 also
  • Slow charging gone..? Or still there..?
  • Sir @DanielRubino, can we set the start screen to transparent just like on W8.1 now aside from having a choice of making it translucent like on the previous W10M builds? thanks.  
  • Watch the video
  • I watched the video before I was able to post this comment/question. I'm just asking for a confirmation here mate. ;) ​
  • Does anyone know if this build will work with VoLTE on my VZW Lumia 735? Also, just curious if on upgrade from 8.1 if the issue i had with 10166 where notification center had some very odd apps listed that appeared to be related to built in email accounts have been resolved.
  • Things I did to update my 640.
    I accidentally woke up at 3:50 am and saw that Gabe pushed the new build. Started to updating but been 30 mins still at 0%. So I slept woke up restart to apply update then again check for updates> downloads 10536.1000> I sleep again then woke up and again restart my phone to apply the update. Then again sleep woke up downloads 10536.1004. Sleep>woke up restart to apply the update. Now it's 10 am . gears are still spinning lol Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • Just Go To Sleep Again Lool
  • Looll Just Downloaded 90 % In 4 Mint Approx.. 40Mbps....   It Will Work On My Lumia 720 ?????
     
  • Do share your experience of new build 720...
  • I cant see any update on my 920 with 10166. And also i cant update my store, its really getting on my nerves that it cant download or update any apps. What to do with this?? I dont have computer as of the moment to backup my files :( im stuck with this crappy build. Please help
  • Reinstall WIndows Insider and choose fats ring. Often this needs to be reselected to kick things into gear.
  • The problem is when i uninstall the insider the store won't allow me to download it again. I also have problem with updating the store :/
  • Best build so far for sure. Almost at 8.1 level. One more month of optimization and we should be good to Go. Running 920 here. I didn't even do a hard reset.
  • Ok, Gabe Aul needs to chill, the Win 10 Phone OS is improving at a glacial pace, the OS isn't getting any faster or smoother, random freezes after unlocking, Live Tiles don't update email Store is still to slow to load, blank screen for a few minutes. Also, those complaining about games, movies and other irrelevant secondary apps: it is a PHONE people! Not an entertainment device, Phone, Email, Text, Contacts, Calendar...everything else is irrelevant, MS should not be pampering you fixing your stupid Zombie Killing Ninja B.S.
  • All Phone manufacturers will disagree with you. If it is only a phone, why do we have quad core CPUs and a powerful graphics chip? You are stuck in the nineties pal :P
  • why not having a phone and a multimedia in one device? BRILLIANT!
  • If that is all you want to work thats fine... but quadcore cpu... a gpu... a gps.. compass and sensors I can't even remember the name of ... forward and rear cameras in my icon and you say its just a phone? if it were not intended for some gaming then why would it have a gpu? Just curious to your answer for that.. I dont game much on mine either a game will catch my interest now and again but im not gonna be short sited enough just to call my icon just a phone lol...
  • GPS working in apps now? It wasn't for me in Runtastic and Fitbit.
  • It always worked fine for me, even in quite older builds...
  • Hey !! Do you know if Microsoft band is supported in this build ?
  • For me, it works and I can sync the Band but I only recieve some and not all notifications.  For example, notifiations from action center are not always delivered.  I think it depends on the application.  LINE messages don't get delivered to my Band in this build but Facebook and email does, although there can be a little delay. Hope this helps!
  • My daily driver requires proper mail and calendar functionality at the very least. That alone is reason enough to stay on WP81. Even beyond the final release of W10M I'm afraid.
  • Hi Daniel, my daily driver is a windows phone 8.1 for Lumia 1520. Would you recommend if I upgrade my phone to the latest build of Windows 10 mobile? Thanks.
  • I have been using it for the past 2 months. Should be good :)
  • It is up to you. I have been using since 10512 as my daily driver on my Lumia 930 and yes, sometimes it drives me crazy. I don't complain, not because I can't but because I am fully aware that it is a Technical Preview.
  • Ahh
  • cant figure out how to set the notification sound for text messages, it no longer shows up under notifications. The mail and calendar apps are abysmal.
  • Go to notification settings, scroll down to the list of apps and click the word messaging to get to change the sound. You might need to receive a text before the app appears in the list, that happened to me on previous build.
  • messagvging and several other apps finall showed up under notofications. All is well now. Quite a good build so far on by 830
  • Lumia 930
    Home screen loading problem still there.
    Apps taking too much time for loading.
    Home screen scrolling, in app scrolling is not smooth its just like jerking
  • Hard reset?
  • so cortana works without internet again? for things like notes and such ?
  • Transparent action center is must.....come on ms listen to your previewer
  • How come I didn't get the folders or the menu when u touch and hold a picture like in the video O.O
  • Is this build can use as daily purpose or for testing purpose only.? I.e performance
  • update is working fine in Lumia 730
  • Isn't it "Stay tuned everybody"? or was that "Hello Everybody"? Maybe both...
  • "Stay 'Hello' [or halo] Everybody"
     
  • Daniel, what about battery consumption? Im ok with glitches and a bit of slowliness, but what is killing my 925 with the slow ring windows 10 mobile preview is the super fast battery consumption due to screen or system usage...not depending on what I'm doing with the phone. After 4 hours I have to put the phone on charge.
  • Same problem with my 925.
  • Anecdotal evidence here.  Lumia 830, off the charger for 8h and still have 40% with moderate app usage. not as good as 8.1 but better than the previous W10M build.
  • where do I get that Cortana poster?
  • Anyone missing the messaging app?
  • I was missing this too. Turns out you need to download the new "Messaging Skype Preview" app. It's the old app with added Skype support.
  • I wish this article was posted 5 hours ago!! I restarted my phone dozens of time:P
  • Quiet hours without Cortana? And openvpn support?
  • The MS Band finally works with win 10 mobile on my 930. Oh happy day!
  • 1020 still is slow to pull down notification shade after boot/waking. WiFi slow to connect after boot. Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • I now have it running on my Lumia 1520 and it's smooth as butter...
  • It's fucking slow....
    This morning I (still) had the "loading" bug.... And my alarm didn't ring !! I was in late for the school (children) ... Grrr
    Congratulations Microsoft
  • Congratulations you just insalled a PREVIEW build you should know some bugs are still here not Microsofts fault your fault.
  • Congratulations for relying on a preview version as alarm. Maybe running preview versions just isn't for you?  
  • a great and noticeable feature is the "folders" view in the Photos app
  • Launch windows 10 mobile final official upgrade please
  • I did a hard reset after the uptade for a clean install and now the messages app is gone :/ I can't send txt anymore.... Anybody experiencing the same????
  • Looks promising, can't wait for a official release... I wish they would offer a final build as a developer preview to get it sooner. 
  • Nothing changed on my photo app
  • I'm on the same boat :/
  • Store, check for updates ;) and enjoy!
  • update from store  
  • Hey guys some problems hear.......... I'm using Nokia Lumia 720 with wp10 tp. New both updates ( 10514,10536) download and than shows preparing to install.......after some time it shows an error......... Now what should I do......plz reply.........
  • Recovery tool, restore to 8.1 and direct upgrade to 10536.1004
  • Any one who has downloaded on lumia 730, please share their reviews bcause this is my daily driver so based on your suggestions i will download it :) Thanks
  • I updated my phone but I still got the old photo menu and no folders showing :/ .... Is there an option to enable or is just my phone fkin with me **cries**
  • Use messaging Skype preview (your earlier question). As for this question, go to the store and check for updates. The new photos app is not included in the build. You will have to check for updates in the store and it will find it.
  • After 5 hours, still at "Downloading updates 0%"......
  • Close the setting app from the multitasking view, wait a few seconds, open settings, phone update again. Is it still 0? There is a bug that sometimes happen where it doesn't update the number automatically. It is still working in the background.
  • Do third party apps work on this build? I'm thinking of taking the plunge with this build, what problems have people encountered with third party apps? I.E Facebook, Twitter, Plague Inc, Microsoft Health/The Band.
  • the new browser edge works, Facebook works, Twitter works. I don't know about the band as I don't have it. Pretty much all normal apps work. One comment above says that the band works on his 930.
  • I have an issue where I cannot save photos from TheChive app, but I'm hoping a re-install of the app will fix that.
  • Stuck on 0% :(
  • Does this build have openvpn support? And quiet hours without Cortana?
  • I took the plunge and I managed to get W10M on my 640XL.  With this latest build it is fine on my main phone (daily driver).  I only have one issue which is that, for the Band, even with the option to receive notifications from the action center I don't get all notifications (e.g. LINE messages on my Band).  I have tried resetting my Band countless times so I think this is OS related - can anyone else confirm this or do I need to reset my Band again? I didn't factory reset either after upgrading from the last W10M build to this one.  Would this make a difference?  It works fine as it is right now, even if some icons do flash briefly on the Start screen after being unlocked.  For me, that is not a deal breaker. It's definitely getting there, for me at least, and it's far better than the trainwreck that many people make W10M out to be.  But before anyone says it, yes, I know this is preview software and yes, I know the experience differs on each device,  I am just saying that for my own personal use it is fine.  Others may not feel the same.
  • Three hours, still at 11%....
  • In what version did the one-hand trick come in? I got a 930 with 8.1 Denim and it dosn't have it.
  • W10 mobile feature only
  • It's a Win10 workaround for putting the Hamburger out of thumbs reach.
  • Lumia 925 "successfully" updated to 10536.1004, delay of the losckreen still present on my device, same thing about the loading issue on the start screen, still present! Someone else has encountered same problems?
  • On my 925 lockscreen delay is there but way less than the previuos build. Plus i have the same loading issues. Lets wait 1-2 days and let the build settle in.
  • Instagram still not able to run and graphic game layout rendering overlapping causing not only the edge not visible but also the touch position inaccurate.
  • Left my phone to update overnight, still stuck at 30% ... Lumia 930.
  • Mine is still on 0% even after 4 hours. anyone else expierencing the same issue
  • Has the LANDSCAPE KEYBOARD been fixed on this update (for phablets like the Lumia 640 XL)?
  • stil stuck at 0%
  • Can I update from 8.1 to this build directly??
  • 34mins so far. Both updates downloaded, 44% installed. Pretty sure I'm going to have to hard reset either way, but lets see. Just the lock screen fix alone will feel better.
  • Windows 10 upgrade is too stressfull and time consuming. From downloading to preparing to installing. They need to work on this before rtm
  • This is why we participate.  To make it better for the general public.
  • No good on my 925. Forever loading the start menu after switch on., can't pin apps to start and most apps I try to open crash straight away. Sadly it looks like I'll be going back.
  • L930: Took three hours from start to finish. Other than the lock screen delay the phone is very responsive. Alot more polish etc etc. Don't expect new features.
  • Checked for updates and my phone (Lumia 735) sees build 10536.1000 as an available update, which is weird since that build was already known to be faulty. What should I do in this case?
  • That cortana poster! Damn I want it... and those toys o.o! I'm a geek I suppose...
  • Oh. Where can I get one of those Cortanta posters in the picture? :)
  • i am facing few problems since i downloaded first few builds. Most importantly, Start Screen takes infinite time to load. even after rebooting and soft reset i never get into that so every time i install builds, within few hours and day i had to revert back to 8.1. i tried hard reset also but while doing that my phone becomes dead and blue screen appears with error. So, in that case also i had to revet back to 8.1. Secondly, there are no Albums except Camera Roll and Saved Images. My all photo folders which were visible in 8.1 disappears. If there are maps already downloaded in 8.1 then why WM10 asks for Maps downloads. Few apps including Dropbox does not work. Calender is again a pain. it comes with Outlook. My Yahoo mail comes integrated with outlook. I can not make saperate icon for that. everytime i have to go to its settings, account and switch between accounts to check mails. Now, either i get wrong or older builds everytime or my phone does not supports WM10 ( i have L920). I tried last week also. i got same problems. Requesting help.
  • mine was at 0% and loading start screen was annoying me. so soft reset. hopefully this wont effect the downloaded file?   also in and out of WiFi as i am at work. really hoping the download goes well! when will download 3 happen? after its installed the first 2? or do you need to go into update phone to find it?
  • Groove music pass still not working!! The only issue that was really bugging me...
  • Installation files downloaded, stuck at 6% of preparing to install and then error 0x800705b4, unable to install on my 1020.
  • I cant install mine. Can anyone help me, I am using lumia 535 with a build 10512, im done with downloading the update. Its say Build 10514 & 10536.1000 are available, im sure my phone finished dowloading the required files, i didn't see the percentage progress from 0% to 100% but the button below says "install now". But the problem is, once i press the button. The screen will going to the installing progress then flashing back to the the original screen were i have to press the button again. Its always like that everytime i am pressing the "install now" button. Anyway it took me 6 hours before i finish downloading the files (or i think a damage files) Anyone with the same problem??? anyway sorry for my english
  • Ohh.. Right now finally, after pressing the button for (i dont know how many times), its stay in "preparing to install updates" screen. And i am thinking i have to face this scenario three times. i think i have to do it at night were theres a few network traffic.
  • 3 hours and still 0%................
  • 9 hours and still 0% my 920 is going to melt :(
  • At 0% for 3 hours on my 640xl! Any advice?!
  • Seems to run better but still inferior to 8.1 in terms of aesthetics and UI. It's like if you took 8.1 hit it in the face with a shovel and rearranged what was left. It also doesn't help that the apps function and look like cheap mobile websites. Can't wait to see the final build running on on the 950 and 950xl. That should be craptacular.
  • Daniel, if you feel like 90 min is a slow update, try 6 hours. :). That's how much it took mine to update to final build. And no, Quiet hours is not working as it's supposed to be. Quiet hour based on Calendar status is not working yet. That's one of the best feature of windows 8.1.
  • I upgraded, and then hard reset.  I cannot install language updates for speech.  It always says error downloading.  It used to be fixed by downloading the Preview for Developers app.  now, there seems to be no way to install speech languages at all following a hard reset.  No Cortana = No joy.  Rolling back :-(
  • Guys m stuck at 8% while upgrading to 10536 anybody face that plz suggest me.i have tried twice making hard reset but every time it stuck at 8%. What to do
  • Just updated but my Photo app doesn't have the new menu changes. Lumia 635 10536.1004
  • Who's all doing master reset at the end Is it needed? Can anyone make start screen folder's dropping one tile on another. I'm not able too
  • I went straight from the previous preview version to this one on my 1520, without a hard reset,just to see how it performs. So far, I havent found any negative impact of not performing the reset, but it is still quite early to tell. Overall, I believe a hard reset after a preview is always a good idea. Dropping app tiles onto each other to create folders works fine for me.  
  • this new menu sounds we are going to have pressure sensitive screen also. :)
  • In old update wifi n hotspot not working then how can i download the latest update plz any one rply via mobile data updates cant be downloaded hell with microsoft
  • Successful update with AT&T Lumia 830. No difficulties encountered except for update time length, very slow. All is well. Known, published issues are confirmed, no other issues noted yet. The 'myAT&T" app is still not functional in this build, but that is ATT problem, not Microsoft.
  • Is it possible now to upgrade from windows 8.1 to windows 10??? bcoz I haven't done upgradation ...
  • Should I not be able to move the keyboard around on a Lumia 930 ?
  • Those who installed this successfully pls give some tips on how did u installed like u did hard reset or soft reset or how much memory required in phone. Pls respond asap as I get same error unable to download updates
  • I thought it was a bug when my 1520 displayed only half the screen... It's a FEATURE!!!
  • Lol.. Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • Build 10536.1004.
    1.Well first things first , the lock screen bug is better. still takes about half a second maybe less to show the time/etc.
    2.The swipe up to unlock is still little jittery, not as smooth as the 8.1 OS but cannot call it complete either.
    3.The photos app is still buggy but FAR better than the previous build , zooming in the photos clicked by the camera (Lumia 1020) still lags alot ,   maybe its the size of the photos or its just the app.
    4.Since the build has been just installed on my daily driver the Lumia 1020 a few hours back i really cannot comment on the battery life.
    5.No heating/over heating issues so that's good.
    6.Quite hours has been fixed.
    7.The "Resuming..." and "loading" bug is still present at some instances, usually occurs when you keep the phone idle for long periods of time, but yes it has occurred in normal use as well. (Note i have been using this build only for a couple of hours so this CAN PAN OUT)
    8.Still no lumia camera app (at-least for the Lumia 1020) and have to resort to using the default camera app, which is quite horrible.  
  • Mine was stuck for 5 minutes np :D
  • Hands on? How about hands on shit! This has been the biggest piece of crap in a while. How about writing a god damn article on the best way to get this piece of shit.
    Not a hands on article that only 4 or 5 people can appreciate. Bad move, and even worse timing. How about telling these people that their best best is to go back to 8.1, and go on from there. The gall of some people.
  • Go take a nap and come back when you are not as grumpy...
  • Won't happen. I'm old and married. I have earned that right.
  • unless you're married to Microsoft, the fact of you being married doesn't earn you anything in that regard :)
  • Go away
  • If u hate windows OS
    why not switch to apple or android

  • I don't hate Windows OS. I hate the PEOPLE behind it. Those who think 3 updates, are better than having one that has the issues fixed. And I'm pissed BECAUSE I do like it. But apparently you can't make the connection. I have tested off and on since Windows 3.1, and I can say, not even Windows 95 was this bad. And wpjoe, bite me.
  • New build doesn't seem to recognize the custom ringtones in my ringtone folder, tired a couple different things but with no joy. Not a real issue but a bummer anyway.
  • Dat Cortana poster.
  • 6 hours and still 64%... :)
  • Do third party apps work on this build? I'm thinking of taking the plunge with this build, what problems have people encountered with third party apps? I.E Facebook, Twitter, Plague Inc, Microsoft Health/The Band.
  • Dirty install on L830. I can say this build is snappier. If it is improved, its gonna be a very good os for sure.
  • Dirty?? Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • For some reason I still experience the Start Screen weirdness on my Lumia 1020.  Right after a boot the Start Screen will not display.  But if I go into apps and start doing things (via Cortana) eventually I can get the start screen to display.  It also happens randomly during the day especially if I have multiple apps open in the background.  Definitely some sort of memory issue.  Not sure whats different in my environment.  I have a good number of tiles on the screen.  PLUS I use folders.  Maybe something there which is tripping up the OS.    By the way, Folders still don't work for me.  I can use the folders that were there when I upgraded to W10 from W8.1, but I can't create new folders. 
  • Agree, the start screen is still horrible specially when the phone is unlocked after a while. using the 1020 as well and yea so is the camera. wonder why did they throw away the Lumia camera app, one of the main reasons for me to get the phone has made my phone a paper weight, photos appear washed out arnt as sharp as the lumia camera app. hope microsoft is hearing .
  • Oh yea, that's right.  The camera freezes and performs badly.  That hasn't changed with 536 either.   Either you and I are very unlucky, the 1020 is not supported well, or MSFT is full of BS with their "Known error" list.   Not sure who they think they are fooling.   No matter how many times you tell me the sky is green I know it's not true.  I'm looking right at it, right now, and it's blue!
  • Battery feels better, almost on par with 8.1. However, the Start Screen seems to have to lag when loading (unlocking, minimizing apps...). As for performance, seems to be slightly faster when switching apps, just as fast when opening. Some small issues with connecting to mobile data.
  • Android apps not working on latest updates
  • I still cant see updates :'(
    Tried to reinstall the insider but the store is having issues as well, wont allow me to update any apps and the store itself. Please I need help with this, I'm just new with this. Thanks in advance
  • Well. The "loading" bug at the start screen is still there. Waited 10 minutes to see my start screen just a moment ago. Every time I reboot my phone, same problem. They didn't fix it at all.
  • Yep.  And many other bugs are still there.  I don't know what's going on.   Hey it's their product and their future as a company, but who benefits from lying.  Just say it.  We only have 3 guys named Mo, Larry, and Curly, working on this and we've really done very little in the last month.  Sorry, we suck. :)
  • Stuck at 15%
  • Has anyone found out if Treasure Tags work in this build? http://www.windowsphone.com/s?appid=026c771b-473d-4593-b5db-e43cc8a3117b
  • Downloaded overnight and it bricked my 1520 this morning on completion of update. Took an hour to flash it to get it working again and now back to 8.1. really want to install though, not sure.
  • Android and iOS updates hardly take half an hour.. This bloody update downloaded in 3 hours, started preparation to update and after an hour it reached only 6 %.. Then all of a sudden update page crashed after opening it again now it is showing downloading updates 0 %.. Wtf.. Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • And I am still stuck at 0 % after 4 or 5 hours second time.. Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • I'm happy that progress is being made on the Windows 10 build.  I'm sure that, in time, this will be a solid OS.  For the time being I'm underwhelmed.  It's like getting into the driver's seat of a Porsche and finding out you cannot get past the second gear.  It looks and feels good, but after a while you aren't getting anywhere anytime soon.  I figure once Microsoft is happy with their bug squashing, they will start tuning the OS for better performance.  Well, let's at least hope so.  My impression is this thing could really fly once its ready.
  • LED notifications?
  • this is the best build so far in terms of performance in my lumia 730!! (took approx 90 mins to install)
  • The store purchase bug seems to have been sorted.  A few days ago Brilli Gallery Locker, mentioned that MS would sort this out in a few days, after I had forgotten about this issue and asked them why it's not recognizing the purchase ...I tipped windows central with their response as well.   After updating to the latest build today, it indeed did recognize that the app has been purchased, so it seems purchased apps are functioning like they should again ...that said, I havent tried all of the purchased apps yet, just a few.
  • First impression after installation in lumia830: It becomes very slow (up to 8 sec) to open up the news feed pages in this app.
  • Exactly..... I uninstalled and reinstalled the app.... Still...
  • After update my photos app is still the same on my M8. Anyone else having this issue?
  • Uhhh, my phone updated (took 6 hours) but I still have the old photos app.  Uh oh.
  • Is anyone else having issues with Facebook not being able to refresh the news feed at all with this build? I know its an occasional issue with the app, but since updating yesterday, it hasn't worked at all.
  • After upgrading to the latest version of Developer Preview my 1520's power button stopped working. I can't even do a reset holding power and volume down. Just used Recovery Tool to roll back to 8.1 and Power Button still doesn't work. Any ideias guys?
  • I'm having a terrible experience with this update: Download​​ took forever to happen (whole night) Phone Update settings page won't open. Restarted the phone, it asked for more space to finish the update (fair). Installation took forever to happen and it failed. After retrying installation, it's currently in step 1 again, downloading.
  • Hi, installed on a 1520 and a 535. I have different results on both phones. On the 1520, lock screen bug is gone, however, the start screen loading bug is still present. On the 535, no start screen loading bug, however, the lock screen bug is worst, now time and date don't show at all... On both phones, performance is a little better, and also on both phones, there are settings items which are not translated.... Bad enough not having cortana, I also have to deal with an os not translated (using portuguese language).
  • Update: Found out what is causing the 535 lock screen problem. It is the double tap to wake feature. If I wake the phone using the power button then the lock screen is ok, if I use the double tap the the lock screen is nok. Strange because I'm using the double tap without problems on my 1520. I've already tried to turn off, restart phone and turn on again the double tap, but problem maintains... Hope this helps to someone also using the 535...
  • Glad I have a backup Icon to use for these updates! First try blew up after 2 hours and I had to start all over again. Then it said I had latest update for an hour and it was only on 10166! Now it's downloaded the 3 updates and is "preparing to install".... been here before, hope it owrks thins time! :>)
  • I got the update but oddly my photo's app is unchanged? How about that.
  • I downloaded it n a L920 and a 930..the 920 was already running the previous build and went through the three build installation the 930 was much quicker from 8.1. I had do do a hard reset in the 930 because my mail wouldn't show up despite it saying my account was loaded. Now both phones are great,running fast and smoothly needs a bit of polish in places but a fantastic build.
  • Still no Photo Roll? one of the coolest features on WP7, I wish some dev would develop it as an app
  • My two cents: Lumia 1520, updated from 10512. I like this update..a lot. The last update had quite a few enhancements but lacked polish on those updates. This build certainly puts a lot of polish on things that were naggingly choppy And unfinished. Much smoother, pinch zoom works nice again and the phone reacts quicker overall. But, the biggest thing I've noticed is that all of my in app data transferred over and apps successfully open, don't crash and are signed into properly. Music pass and all of my music, playlists, purchases in Groove Music are all there. So, at this point, it looks like I won't have to do a hard reset, which I had to the last time. Maybe that's why the update took longer, more info migration. I don't know, but so far I like this update and things feel on their way. If they could only get rid of that constant capitalization of the word "And" in word flow!
  • 0% !! After waiting more then 12 hrs
  • I started last night at 22:00... and still could not make a single step...  
  • "Preparing to install..." for the last hour or so.  I don't recall previous builds to take so long to download and install.  This one is taking absolutely forever.
  • Backup Assistant Plus does not work on my 928
  • Pinning and unpinning tiles seem to be buggy in this build on my L735.  Tiles disappear after pinning and unpinning sometimes has no effect.
  • Yeah it's buggy on the 640 too. Microsoft shame on you more than enough time to NOT have these kinds of bugs.
  • Working well on my 930 daily driver, didn't seem to need the hard reset I performed after finding 10512 was flakey. Functionally, it seems to be equivalent to maybe iOS6 or Android Icecream?
  • Hahaha... iOS 6 was better, I think.. Don't know about Ice Cream sandwich.. Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • That Cortana poster in the image is awesome.
  • I still have home screen issues on my 930. Loading.... And it wont come back umless o do my secret fix to get it back. So that is not gone in this new build. Bummer cuz every thing else seems better.
  • Installed on my Lumia 640. Took 6 hours over WiFi. Then I installed updates for my apps. Everything is working well and running smoothly except Spotify. Changing playlists was slow on 8.1 and remains slow on Windows 10. I suspect the problem is Spotify, not Windows. Based on the past 4hours, battery life seems improved. I listened to Mix Radio all morning and used less than 10% of the charge in 4 hours of streaming music over WiFi. Phone calls, texting and email are perfect. The 640 is my backup phone but I would be comfortable using it as my primary. Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • Returning to WP 8.1 to stabilize the 10. Say NO to guinea pig!
  • You said YES when you signed up for preview builds. Dude, If you don't want to play guinea pig, the Insider program is not for you. It's really that simple.
  • Where is messaging app in 10536.1004 ? My message app is missing.
  • Films n tv app full screen option fixed in this update!
  • Could someone clarify this for me - which phone is this on the pic and in the video ? Text says 1520 - and in vid icon - I haven't touched any of the two (I'm still on 1020 and love it : )) btw. the new update looking pretty good to me from the video.
  • Unless you are using English, text labels overflow and being cut everywhere.
  • Well they have replicated a bug from Windows 10 – the mail app is broken with rackspace accounts, it can receive, but not send. Same error as the desktop app occurs. Bug report with multiple users here: http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/insider/forum/insider_apps-insider_mail/mail-app-gives-error-when-syncing-an-imap/0bad34d1-5278-4738-a74e-50b77f639a90   Previous builds were ok. The draw back of a universal platform - universal bugs.  
  • so on my 640 photos app remains unchanged. Runs like silk, no delay and everything else works fine, just no "Folders" or new menu. reasons as to why?
  • Thanks for the Hands on
  • Starting to wonder if it will ever be done.
  • I am getting the below error while installing the build 10536 in my 620. I tried 3 times but failed to install when the progress bar showing 6% while preparing for updates. There were some problems installing updates but we'll try again later. if you keep seeing this and want to search web or contact support for information, this may help: (0x800705b4) Any idea how to resolve this issue?    
  • Here in the Netherlands. Tried downloading the update since yesterday morning. Still 0% for first update. The update UI is a bug or download servers are overcrowded at Microsoft. Perhaps they should not offer the update to all at once. But if I don't get it today I'm thinking of doing a rollback to windows phone 8.1
  • I have one problem. I swtiched from slow ring to fast ring on my Lumia 630 and I went to update, I got stuck a 0% but went to 51% after a hour or so, and now It's stuck at downloading Windows 10 10.0.10512.1000 and 10.0.10536. Then I wen't to Explorer and there is only 129MB of internal storage left. So is there any way to dowload this builds seperatly?
  • This build wont show the sim pin screen and wont be able to call. And whatsapp will not install eventhough the save to internal storage setting is on. The theme seems to change on it's own. Did a hard reset 2 times because some apps will again not install. I know it's a preview but the problems keeps stacking and doubt these gets fixed in time. (Lumia 640)
     
  • i traid to install build 10536 from 10512 no use ..so i flashing back to windows 8.1 and i updated smothely.
  • I've been using mine as my main phone since the last build. At first I thought the update had screwed due to the length of time it took to update. Then thought that the update started reinstalling because of the .1001 to .1004 update. But after nearly 24hrs of use on my 930... Smooth, yes. Stable, yes. However I have notices that it seems to drain my battery slightly more than the previous build. Also I've noticed that live tiles don't update as quick as they used to do. I can get alerts for things such as emails and txt's. But they don't show on the tiles. Then after I've read any email, they still show on the live tiles. So for some reason there seems to now be a delay that wasn't there in the last build. Other than that, so far so good...
  • Great build! but my god does the windows central app suck on this. BTW are we getting a Universal app soon?
  • Ringtone maker or custom ringtones are no longer working with this build
  • This is undoubtedly the best build released so far, least laggy of all. Not complete bug free but will get you through without the constant annoyance of previous builds. Haven't had to do soft resets in the last 2 days, previously had to every hour. Battery life on my 1520 is lesser than on 8.1 but that's a trade off i dont mind. I have an OCD of marking all my mails and texts as read, wish they add a select all option and then mark as read in outlook and text messages.
