Hands-on with Windows 10 Mobile build 10572 – The best one yet?

Lumia 1520

Microsoft surprised Windows Insiders again today with another release of Windows 10 Mobile – the second within six days. Build 10572 was released despite having the same upgrade issue as the previous build. This setback means to upgrade from last week's build 10549 you first to need to rollback to Windows Phone 8.1 and then take the direct upgrade to build 10572.

So is it worth it? You bet. Not only does this release bring many new features, but the performance improvement on our Lumia 1520 is out of this world. Dare we say – this is starting to feel like RTM territory? That does not mean all is well – especially for dual SIM phones – but this release feels vastly different than any other.

Watch our hands-on video to see my first impressions!

Here's what's been fixed and what's still broken in Windows 10 Mobile build 10572

Some of the biggest additions include:

  • Text from your Windows 10 PC through your Windows 10 Mobile phone to any number – This relies on Cortana, for now, and it works very well. Cortana even notifies you that the message has been sent. So far, it does not look like you can directly send through the Windows 10 Messaging app, but this is still a new feature.
  • Camera is better, faster - Although we had some hang ups with reviewing the images, all now seems to be working. The camera is finally faster and is returning to Windows Phone 8.1 levels of performance
  • Store Offline Maps on SD card - If storage is a concern, you can push offline maps to your storage card. This feature is huge news for devices with low internal memory
  • Revamped Storage Settings- Storage settings get a new look
  • Edge is faster, now has progress bar - One of my pet peeves is fixed as Edge now has a progress bar when loading a website; there is an option to change search from Bing to another engine, but it is not yet working; Edge overall feels more polished

There are still a few occasional hiccups. When we send through Outlook from Photos, the message is sent but Outlook hangs on the logo; some users have complained they can't set a background image, and there are few other oddities, but hardly anything show stopping.

Microsoft has also reportedly fixed the Cortana-power issue, meaning better battery life. We'll, of course, have to play with the build over the next few days to see how it holds up, but yeah, this is worth the trouble. Even the Store is supposedly fixed for stuck-apps.

Build 10572 is a big milestone for the Windows 10 team, and we are super excited about using this as a daily driver.

  • Really excited about this release!
  • It would be the best if i could update from 10549 but okay a newer one is coming soon!
  • As of the last build I have to say that MS proved me wrong, and gave us some really good new features that are actually useful.... I'm pretty impressed!
  • That is, I believe, the most positive message I have seen from you... not hating, just saying... good on ya!  
  • No shit. LOL Negative Nancy. I'm told that under the skin of every pessimist is a disappointed optimist. Maybe week see more change of hearts as things reach RTM quality. Would certainly be welcome. It's a drag to see negative comments all of the time.
  • Microsoft needs to do a LOT to improve WP10 before launch to get back to 8.1 levels of quality. Unfortunately, it looks like we're stuck with the shoddy UI design.
  • I would like a more 8.0 performance;). I don't like how 8.1 performes on my 1020... Just saying.
  • I thought 8.1 acted better than 8.0.. Of course I have a 1520, so my experience could be the opposite of yours.
  • I originally heard it as a George Carlin quote.  Inside every cynical person, there is a disappointed idealist. George Carlin He's not the only one that has those feelings. He's just very vocal about his and tells it as he sees it.   
  • True. Very true.
  • It's not about being negative.. It's about stating the truth, being realistic, and not being unrealistically positive..... It's about having true concern about improvement, and moving forward.
    ...............
    And, while some of you guys interject way too much emotion into all of this, it's that harshness that gets MS' ass in gear the most.. Soft fans that want to cover their ears to negativity hurt the platform the most...
    ..................
    The thing is that I have always given credit where credit is due.. If there is more negative going on with WP than positive, then that's just the way it is.... Nevertheless, I will always tell the situation just as I see it, wether it upsets anyone here, or not.... Like I've said before,, I'm not interested in padding any softies feelings around here... I'm interested in WP being the best it can be..... I'm a true fan.
  • "it's that harshness that gets MS' ass in gear the most.. " The worst part about this dumb shit is that you, and the whiners like you actually believe this is true. You've never heard this said my a person from MS, you have just decided this is the way to be. And it's bad for the WP community as a whole. 
    You haven't gotten MS in gear, all you have managed to do is fill message boards with garbage, and misinformation. It's actually hilarious and pathetic at the same time just how wrong you (and others) are with +90% of what you put out, but whatever... If you believe it long enough I guess it becomes the truth for you.
    Are you the only one here that does it? Not even close. But you are definitely one of the main ones. And again, it's sad. WP as a whole is and has been a terrific product. But it's people like you who make it their mission to throw shade because you think whining = winning.    
  • Thanks for your opinion, but no thanks.. I still stand by what I say. I didn't say what I said because I don't believe it... So, if you got a problem with it, then that's not really my problem... End of story.
  • What rodneyej is saying its true and it does more or less put their ass in gear.
    -----------
    MS might have not said it but they did something even bigger and better; they put out an entire program for the world to use, so they can do just that: use their OS and tell them what's good and what's not - therefore looking for critics, not "florists."
  • I'm one of the harshest critics of Windows 10, having been one of the loudest chearleaders of Windows Phone 7, Windows Phone 8 and Windows 8.  I don't really care what you or others like you feel about those versions of the OS.  As far as I'm concerned, it's people like you who were stunted enough to adore Windows 7 and were enthralled to see Microsoft essentially go backward with Windows 10.  I'm not under any illusion that any complaint, any feedback I've posted via their system (and that's been PLENTY) is anything other than ignored.  I happened to be convinced that the fool Nadella and his little minions had it in their collective minds to go back toward Win7 and the only opinions they really cared about were those that largely agreed with them.  As for what's "bad for the WP community as a whole", I find it laughable that anyone actually believes there IS a "community" anymore.  There was a time when I did.  It started to splinter and disintegrate when we had to start over with WP8.  And then again the loss of MORE features in 8.1.  The final nail was W10.  So, yes, many of us DO hate the hamburger menus, the loss of pivots, the loss of real integration, the loss of real hubs -- the list could go on -- in favor of essentially moving the mobile platform (and, it seems, the desktop) more toward an Android-like concept. WP started as a great product.  Not perfect, but it was, from its very concept and user experience, better than Android or iOS, in my opinion.  But when Android and iOS lovers began to infiltrate Microsoft and people without the spines to say, "You know, we believe this is still the right direction to go, and we're going to improve on it and make the case" kicked out the innovators, I knew that would see the gradual decline into blandness that W10M and Windows has turned into.  Well, bland in that any pretense of being "new" is purely superficial, and maybe less bland given that Windows has turned into a Frankenstein's monster of inconsistency, conflict and brokenness. Before you cast me as of those whose mission is to "throw shade", where the heck were YOU when WP7 and WP8 and Windows 8 was the product and others were trashing it?  I'm guessing you were lobbying for the hamburger menus.
  • Could you please explain where is Windows 7 better thatn 10? What went backwards?
  • Do you people realise that no one gives a fuck about your stupid fights.We are here for the OS that we love,and not to bitch about what others are commenting and crowding the comments section with useless comments.this is not FB,or twitter.Focus on WINDOWS
  • That harshness doesn't motivate MS. Think about all of the things that have changed with MS products from OneDrive to the apps with the hamburger menu etc.... None of those tantrums amounted to a damn thing. MS took positive criticism of value and did what they could with it, but they didn't back step on things that were clearly problematic for their ecosystem.
  • The thing is that what some of you softies consider "harshness" is actually the most helpful constructive criticism that MS can utilize to make their products better... They need us to tell it like it is,,,, no less.... Sorry, I disagree with you.
  • I pointed in the last build that they can change the things drastically in just one build, and it happened. Near to RTM.
  • I've been pointing this out for ages, no one seems to understand how software development works )=
  • It's not about not knowing how it works, rather working with the information MS, and WC relay to us....
    .......
    They both said builds ago that WM10 was about feature complete, they said this over a month ago.. That's what fueled frustration, and left us hanging.. It just wasn't enough... Then, near the end, they dump some of the most useful shit on us...... Odd..
    .........
    Maybe, some of these features were meant for later on... Maybe its fans voices that fast tracked these latest features...... Point being,,, we should let others speak their minds... They are more helpful than fans that aren't on MS's ass.
  • Yeah, it happened with desktop.
  • If it's good, it's good, and I say it's good..
    If it's bad, it's bad, and I say it's bad..
    .....
    Here, there's (relatively) been more bad, than good.. It's that comparable part that concerns me,, because that is reality. WP must compete with Droid.
    .....
    I am not that person.. Not the one to sugar coat stuff... Never ask, or expect that to me.. That, my friend, is someone else's job here... Lol. He has his place, I have mine... But, I guarantee you we are BOTH just as big of fans as the other.
  • I can finally select 4K 30fps for video recording again (on my Lumia 930)!
  • Ye of little faith, lol ;p
  • rodneyej, Lets hope they got it right, always loved the OS but its the app support that will make or break the platform.  For work I'm on iOS due to work email and I absolutly hate it.  I hope the WP10 will support corporate email.
  • WP 8.1 and 10 support corporate email.  I am on it now using Exchange and Active Sync.   I get emails on my Windows phone before they hit my desktop usually.   I'm on Windows 10 Build just before this awesome release.  I'm waiting for the follow up release so I don't have to go back to 8.1.  Getting tired of resetting all my tiles and reintalling apps.      
  • Apps, and marketing... Two things WP has never had.. SMDH.
  • Same here Joseph. Have a S6 for corporate email. Other than the MS apps, Google Maps, and the camera are better, Android is just not a better experience.
  • Has anyone experienced that this build does not ask for your PIN when unlocking your phone? It only asks for it if the phone has been restarted.
  • yep next week
  • 10549 was rly great too in terms of performance and battery life :D
  • One advice: try to upgrade from build 10549 first. My Lumia 930 (UK) started to upgrade automatically from build 10549. I didn't have to revert back to win 8.1....I'm so excited and can't wait for the upgrade to finish.......yiiiii hoooooooouuuuuu! 
  • Hey, Thanks for that tip. please udpate once you were successfully able to update that way to the new buid. Waiting to hear from you
  • I did roll-back to WP8.1 and then updated directly to Build 10572. No option for build 10549 unless that was for Slow ring
  • They really need to fix that red hamburger menu in the news app. Feels out of place..i am getting to the point of being ocs about it ;)
  • This is not wrong, then why need to be fixed?
  • Im confused why cortana cards dont fill the screen on the 1520?Im wondering if this is a style choice or a bug? It looks unfinished, i hope they fix it...
  • We've been saying that for months....
  • I'm also wondering why the cards are ugly white when the phone theme is set to dark mode. I think that also looks unfinished.
  • Hope we'll get an dark/light option in Cortana.
  • They should use a very light grey.
  • Same issue with email on my Icon. Emails are unnecessarily narrow. 
  • It has to do with scaling only going so far. If you lower/raise the dpi settings in display, they will fill the screen. I would consider this a bug - seems like an easy fix to allow one more scaling mode.
  • I believe it's a style choice due to incorporating the hamburger. 8.1 didn't have a hamburger anx filled the entire screen.
  • I'm getting OCD about your use of OCS
  • So true...
  • This is the best one yet for my 920. Turning the dpi scaling all the way down gives 5 toggles in one row, four medium tile columns (kinda tiny but hey), and 1520 style multitasking (was broken in previous build). And most of all, it's stable as hell!
  • now Microsoft should allow split screen apps (just like the Samsung Galaxy phones have it) and W10 tablet mode
  • Dan, you should write an article about Microsoft new windows store search algorithm and how it completely ignores keywords to the detriment of indie developers. When apps are a problem this is sorely going to hurt windows as a platform. Microsoft have been zero help in addressing this either. Im happy to email you specifics and evidence of this.
  • Oh wow. I got two downvotes? is this reddit or something? or are people just not interested in helping the platform grow?
  • Who know their reasons, but this isn't the forum Daniel et al can't be expected to read every bloody post. Try the tip line or something.
  • yes, this is sad. WP8.1 store lists more apps in recent apps list. But W10M store shows just 5-6 apps in the list. Couldn't find correct app from the store. Also many apps are still not available in W10M store. Store on W10M really needs improvement.
  • Daniel I'm using current build 10512 can I received this build??
  • not directly ... but if you go back to Windows Phone 8.1 you can get it ..   no Windows 10 mobile build can update to this new version , all need to downgrade to Windows Phone 8.1 first
  • My Lumia 930 (UK) started to upgrade automatically from build 10549. I didn't have to revert back to win 8.1....I'm so excited and can't wait for the upgrade to finish.......yiiiii hoooooooouuuuuu!
  • Why dont you just read the article.
  • It's easier not to read the article.
  • you're such a dummy
  • I'm excited to see it running well on Lumia 1520 hardware.  Even though I'll miss a few UI elements from WP8, I'm looking forward to the day that my Lumia 1520 tells me that the official Windows 10 update is available for installation.
  • This is really funny because I was about to login specifically to post and see if anyone else is as suddenly excited about W10M as I am now. This is The Release that really shows what MS can do. What's funny is that they'e always known this was coming, it's just hard for us to see it as things progress. I remember when Windows 10 hit The Build -- I was sold. Same is true of W10M now. This is probably the best mobile OS I've ever used--and that includes the Nexus 6 I've been playing with for a month.
  • Reading you was somehow satisfying
  • Hey Daniel it would be really great if you shoot a video reviewing this build on a low end device
  • Reviewing it with phones that the vast majority of users use is Very rare. Why? Test it on one yourself and you'll know. They lag way behind 8.1
  • Yes thank you. Now how do I upvote your comment from this mobile app... Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • I think AAWP guys take care of these things.... Better head there.
  • If WM10 wifi is connected with firewall than u can't downlod any apps and games But u can download any app and games in 8.1 in same wifi except xbox games. What is the solution for this
  •   Tried it on my Icon and just got a windows logo and then barly lit black screen. Had to roll back to 8.1. Should I try agin.  
  • Same here on my 625. I'm getting a black screen after updating. 
  • there is a bug on some devices when the migrate thing starts, the screen will stay black, leave it alone for 5-10 minutes and you will be fine after that. I had this on my icon too but unlike you i read all the problems with this build and knew what was going on.
  • Thanks I'll try it again.
  • I got the black screen on my HTC M8, and i just waited for about 5-10 mins and it worked. Thanks for the tip.
  • YES same problem with me on my bhot devices L435 afer installing screen stays black for long time then i think windows 10 mobile is not installed i switched to 8.1 on lumia 435 than i try it on my HTC one M8 and screen stay black for 10 to 15 minutes than it start so... be careful
  • Got the same black screen on my 920, you just need to wait for 5 to 10 minutes and the migration process should begin afterwards.
  • And my lumia535 so!
  • I reset in order to not have the loading screen, but then updated to the last build... And then got the issue back... So I'll just stay on this build until this issues are fixed, plus reverting and updating is annoying long... Needs optimization for low RAM phones...my 520 runs red h hot every update, some drain the Battery causing it to fail and this in n need of repeat... I'll pass on that experience...
  • I got a really big battery drain for 2 hours on both my updates and then it goes back to normal.
  • Hi All, i am facing issue regarding glance screen. Not able to open its settings. Also motion data is not able to update. Any solution for same?
  • Same issues here.
  • +1 same issues
  • Does the phone still heat up draining the battery? that was the reason i went back to 8.1. 
  • At least there it heats up without draining the battery
  • "Resuming" when you click on messaging is still there :( Do you think they will fix this?
  • Hasn't been a problem for me, the longest time it's taken to load is 2-3 seconds, and usually its just instant (930), but I think for a lot of people anything that's not instant is too slow. There's only two things I expect to be instant all the time and that's unlocking the phone and going back to start.
  • on 10549 i only get this for about 2 seconds which i think is acceptable on my 1020. but if running in the background it load straight away, so maybe soon if not in this build they will improve it further!
  • Yeah if it runs on background it is almost instantly but would be great if it opens the same speed not running on background.
  • Will windows 10 mobile have new big features in upcoming builds or now Microsoft just improve performance of this OS as still dere is no Bluetooth folder where we can see received stuff :/
  • Hoping to see some improvements in battery life
  • Anyway the photo not opening after you take the shot should be due to the fact that you have rich capture on. It is processing it in background after you take the shot, then the circle will light up when it has finished processing. It was introduced in previous camera updated. In my opinion it takes too long and it is not clear for the user what's going on, they will change this behavior hopefully.
  • Stupid that texting from PC is binded to Cortana. This should simply be inside the apps.
  • How is your computer supposed to be connected to your phone without internet connection? Bluetooth? Local network? USB cable?
  • That's actually a really good point Posted via the Windows Central app for Android because it's infinitely better than the WP/ WM one
  • Me too Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • Isn't the performance increase basically down to them removing the Android emulator that was running on previous builds?
  • Still, not a dailydriver. I am in love of 8.1 more and with each release of WP10 Preview my love for 8.1 is increasing. A whole bunch cant fix basic issues, and to me they are left in each preview intentionally.  On paper, it looks awesome but on ground it sucks. Lags, Delays, Crashes, 10 Months and not a single solid build. Sorry to say but MS is wasting time and money. 
  • What makes you think Microsoft leaves bugs in their OS on purpose? Or that 10 months is enough to make an OS with no bugs? Some people...
  • Its been less than 24hrs, but so far this one has been very solid. Each build is getting better and better, thats how software development works. Final release will have some cool stuff, but likely wont be as polished as 8.1. WP8.1 was a refinement of 8. This is a start-over, so some ground will be lost.
  • wasting time and money? Y'know, EVERY OS goes through this exact same process - dealing with lags, delays, crashes, etc., for a good portion of a year - prior to RTM. We're getting a peek behind the curtain, yet we're surprised the actors aren't in full make-up and costume. Jesus.
  • Daniel sms backup not working with Windows 10 Mobile Build 10572? I have lost all sms message (2013-2015). :(  Bug?  (and i have restore 3 times my Microsoft Lumia 940 XL)
  • I have the same issue. Reported it on feedback.
  • Same. I'm on a 928 and had everything backed up on Verizon and one drive. Nothing. Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • Same issue here, I'm just going to be patient, I see them in Outlook.com, so I know they're there.
  • I have reset my Lumia 730 Dual sim a couple of times and my SMS backup does not restore.This is very frustrating.Hopefully the new build will fix the problem.Anyway i will stick with this build until a fix is provided.
  • (640 XL) :)
  • Lumia Camera app is back. And I thought it was only for Lumia 1020.  Also, just found out my favourites on MS Edge PC are now synced to Edge on mobile! Really lots of improvements...    
  • Lumia Camera is still lost if you reset the phone to factory settings! Pay attention!
  • I did a hard reset after installing the new build.  And Lumia Camera App installed itself.  I opened the app thinking it will have the old message to use Windows Camera instead.  But it is the full Lumia Camera App.  I have the build installed on a Lumia 635.
  • Thanks for warning us that most apps aren't reinstalled after rollback. And yes I did a backup! Looking forward to better things to come and for now holding off on ordering the Moto X Pure! #L1520
  • I have a Lumia 822, how well does this build work on my phone? Currently on 8.1 Denim. Last time I tried 10 it was a mess, albeit it was the second or third release. 
  • I like this but 10572 still burn battery so much.
  • Too early for daily use.
  • In what way?
  • He hasn't woken up yet to install it :P
  • Ha!! In that case, I agree except, it is now too late. Maybe tomorrow. Haha.
  • lol. I wish I could reply to this tinfoil hat commenter over at PCWorld but for some reason it won't let me reply over there: "Did MS fix those two big gaping always open back-doors yet?? Oh wait! MS thinks those are "premium features" that will "enhance" your user experience even as they give themselves (and therefore the government) permission to rifle through everything on your computer and even copy, delete or block what they don't like." http://www.pcworld.com/article/2995465/windows-phone-os/microsofts-new-w...
  • I don't know what to make of this.. Is this click bait?
  • Only difference with MS data collection and Privacy is they tell you about it. All the others inc apple and android do the same and even worse but keep quite about it. Hell,  only this week apple had admitted about 256 or so apps were data logging back to china and have pulled them  but they wont tell the million or so  people who have allready installed the apps which apps they are.  But hey its apple so nobody is upset.  If Microsoft had allowed this there would be uproar.  It is naive to think your safer elsewhere and what the hell anyway, Have you got something to hide?
  • "Have you got something to hide?" Yes. My full name, family members names, addresses, phone numbers, account numbers, pictures of friends and loved ones, passwords used on web sites and  apps, and I'm sure other things that I can't think off right off hand. Really not so much a matter of hiding it, but controlling who has access to it. Don't misunderstand, I think I am safer with MSs OS(s), and MS, than some others. Some of the features we lack in WP are a direct result of the architecture preventing apps from having access that could compromise information they don't need.  It is a bit disengenious to think that you have no need for any security or privacy if you 'have nothing to hide'. It is more about what can be done with the information you don't need to hide, and by who (whom?), that is the issue. I  suppose you would have no problem with leaving your house unlocked so authorities could come in whenever they liked, since you 'have nothing to hide'. 
  • Maybe it depends on your phone, but I've been running it as my daily driver for a couple months now. This build seems even better. Yes, there were a couple annoying things in the last build, but it doesn't preclude me from using it. For the short time I was back on 8.1 yesterday, i was reminded how nice Win10 really is!
  • Microsoft Going Great Guns here ... Expectations are really really high...
  • About time! How much time get to be the official win 10 for mobile? Microsoft need to do this move as soon possible
  • Best current guess is new phones in November. Updates to existing phones starting in December.
  • USB OTG for phones, yes!
  • For real?
  • We have enabled the number one user feedback item for the storage settings page to allow you to install applications to expanded storage such as and SD card or USB drive on BOTH your phone and PC.
    Quote from Mr. Aul's post on the Windows Experience Blog. 
  • I'm afraid that USB drives are for PC that is mentioned in same blogpost and OTG support would be mentioned in bold as first major change if it is here. :( But I'll hope that I'm wrong :)
  • You can plug USB drives into the Continuum dock so USB OTG must be supported by the phone.
  • Verified.. USB OTG Not working. So No... no OTG support on phones yet.
  • USB OTG has hardware requirements, so I don't expect any current phone to magically get it with a software update. The new phones are USB-C connectors, and presumably support a good deal of what that implies, including host capabilities. Just guessin'.
  • What device? I'll try my L930 tommorow if I'll have time in the morning. Snapdragon 800 has support for USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 if I correctly understand Wiki page    
  • Though we don't know the prerequisites on it - e.g. only USB 3.0 sticks or Snapdragon 400 and above.
  • Dynamic live tiles for phones and 5 shortcut icons, upon opening notification bar, on every phone like that on 1520.
  • I wish get them live tiles flipping like on W10PCs
  • ^^^^This
  • Hopefully it gets released properly SIM. It's just not worth hours of resetting my device, updating it, getting my apps, then getting my maps and music back. They said it should be this week, so I'll go get some horses and hold them.
  • Yeah I'm waiting for the "upgrade release" too. My Icon runs ok with 10549 so not crucial to update. Glad to hear this is an improvement even over that build.
  • I'm still on 10536.1004 as it works on my daily driver and will sit tight and wait for RTM release.
  • 10549 is SO much better than 10536 though. Definitely worth the upgrade. If the upcoming 10575 can be done without reset, you need to get it.
  • I'll obviously get it then. However, the short-term benefit of getting it maybe 3 days sooner isn't worth the 5 hours of having no phone and having to restore content.
  • ^^^ This It's my daily driver and willing to wait for the RTM release. Otherwise it takes too much time to set up again.
  • Migrating data!! I'm so excited. (640xl) I noticed they said the pull down noti bar is smoother now. Honestly one of my only gripes. I guess we all have our little things. Still excited! Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • It was one of mine too.
  • Just FYI the pull down noti bar is VERY responsive now. (640xl) this build is the best by leaps and bounds. And I haven't performed a reset since migrating data from 8.1. Very nice Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • I want to put it on my M8 so I can get the full experience using my daily driver, but I'm a little apprehensive. I'm updating my 1020 so I will see how it is first, but I'm 90% certain I'm going to do it. I don't mind the recovery process.
  • So far so good on my 1020 :D
  • Can you change the Wi-Fi and Rotation Lock in the action center? I keep getting sent back to the start screen
  • Yes I'm able to change them all. #640xl
    Double tap to wake also works I may add and a little embarrassed but I never knew you could long press icons in action pull down and it takes you to the main settings page for said item. :-\ I always thought they were just toggles...
  • They've been adding this little by little. Not all of them did that on the first builds, and some it doesn't make sense...it is just a toggle. Works similarly on the action buttons in Win 10 on tablets/laptops. Wish you could switch the default actions.  WiFi for example I would rather a tap go to the settings, and a long press toggle. I am more likely to want to connect, or change connection than ever turn it off. BT same. More likely to want to connect something than turn off BT. Not looking for them to change for me, just add the option so those who like it the way it is can keep it.
  • the same like me...i  was suprised.... lol...
  • How is the camera software working so far in your 1020? Any speed diffrence? Thanks.
  • Running great on my M8. Do it. You won't be let down.
  • really bro? is the motion launch work on this build?
  • I need to follow you to see 640xl experience. I am on fence as I just got my device and will hate to reset it if builds are not updatable.
  • Is your 640xl dual SIM? Mine is, and I'm so afraid to upgrade to this build.
    Tell something!!
  • Mine is single sim. Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • From what i undestand, as long as you keep those second line tiles in your home screen, you shouldn't worry about it.
  • Im running it on my 535 Dual sim and it's running great
  • I guess I'll do some upgrading tomorrow.
  • Why I'm not getting any updates ? Currently on 10536 build, phone says your device is up-to-date.
  • Because you don't read the notes. You should go back to 8.1 if you want to upgrade to the latest build.
  • lol
  • you can only get this build if you are on wp8.1. For 10536 you'll have to wait a few more days or you can rollback.
  • still waiting for my 920 to finish updating. Seems like it's almost ready for me to install on my 830.... long enough to get a 950 xl :)
  • Been running several builds on my 830. Last one was pretty good. Reset now and still re-installing from backup before upgrading. Only thing I lost last time was the non-beta Lumia Camera. I had to install the Beta Lumia Camera from finding it in my app list. :-/  At least I could install and use it because I got the real Denim update by flashing back.
  • I was going to wait for the next build as the last has been really nice to use. But... Now you make me want to do it. Hmm..decisions, decisions.
  • Do it!!!! ;-)
  • Dont let your drams be dreams!!
  • Actually seeing it's Back To The Future day I really should be saying... "Are you Chicken!?!"
  • "Nobody calls me, uh, chicken"
    -
    -
    You win, I am doing it tomorrow :)
  • Good to see... My work is done here! :-)
  • It is a HUGE step aheadQ Go for it!!!
  • It really seems faster... Do you think I can use it now in my daily phone?
  • If you don't mind the photo sharing bug, and your phone isnt a dual sim, definitely. Just do a reset after you upgrade, always helps a ton
  • I am hoping the next build doesn't need a reset. As much as backing up helps, it is still a pain. Specifically app downloading. Not sure if this is the same experience for all, but tapping on an app that needs downloaded just launched the store. Not even to the page, just the store. Hope that is a bug and it actually works as it used to in the future.
  • Im thinking upgrading!
  • I think the concept isn't that it should bring you to the page for the app, but should bring you to the downloading screen. If you can see the app in your app list, that means it should be on the download list. So, while yes, I think it can be improved, I disagree that it should bring you to the page for the app in the store. Definitely should go to the download screen (same as it did in 8.1).
  • Right, that is what I am saying. It should work like it used to, download the app. What i was stating was; not only does it not just start downloading as it should, it doesn't even go to the app page.
  • Oh, I don't think I've ever seen an app listed on the app list without it being on at least the downloading list already.
  • That pink accent color looks really sweet.
  • Can't wait... Can't wait..
    Can't wait
  • Same here, this build feels amazing for me, better than 8.1, so excited to see how much better rtm is :D
  • Installed on my 930 Phone started blue MS sign then that was it could see the phone on my desktop but wouldnt turn on the screen ...had to do a hard reset ...just installing again now
  • Mine did that also and set there for a long while (maybe 10 minutes or longer) until it started migrating data finally. Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • up and running now
  • Same on my 830
  • its a bug in this build on some devices where the screen will stay black will migrating user data, leave your phone be for 5-10 minutes and the update will complete.
  • My 930 installed and migrated data but the screen is now completely blank. Not sure what to do... any advice? Thanks
  • Let I there for 5-10 min as others had mentioned
  • Thanks, it worked! :-)
  • I am out of look on the htc m8. I am stuck on build 10536. I can't get the device detected with the windows device updater. I can put my phone in bootloader mode, but the device updater can't see my phone.
  • I wonder if the update to the recovery tool has something to do with it. I think I was on that build, if it has the yellow border, and it worked for me, but that was prior to the update. Maybe I won't try this build on the M8
  • I just did mine last week so the files are there. Good luck.
  • Sweet, then I guess I'll still do it. Are you using the current build? Yellow border gone? Can you change the Wi-Fi and Rotation Lock toggles in quick action? Is double tap to wake working?
  • I've used it several times I go back and forth, nearly killed it try a different Usb cable ivd found it very picky about data and power. Mine was stuck
  • For people who want to upgrade, he said early next week (Mon-Tue.) on twitter... Word is build 1575 He quoted by Tuesday.  I was going to go back to 8.1 but, I will wait it out, dont want to lose a few save games...
  • Your going to have to revert to 8.1 to get that build anyway
  • Nope, it has been reiterated many times now that next build doesn't require reverting to 8.1. See also tweet by Gabriel Aul: https://twitter.com/GabeAul/status/656589710626652161
  • Why are people going around stating this when Gabe has said the opposite multiple times... I've seen no articles or tweets or anything to support this claim.
  • Still no preview release for Samsung ativ se, this is getting really annoying
  • But think about time you saved by not messing with beta builds.
  • Blame Samsung. They're not providing roms for the Recovery Tool so it looks like we'll have to wait until December. I'd like my ATIV Neo on 10 too.
  • Now I might be able to install on my wife's 1020.
  • What about the IAP(In App Purchase) problem?
  • Yes, this is becoming a problem for me. That and disappearing apps.
  • In some cases it's so annoying, but in some it is advantageous. You know I can purchase items in Frozen free fall for just tapping 'buy' and not even opening the wallet!
  • I have Lumia 1520 and when am i getting it?....
  • Right now if your on 8.1, earlier next week you'll get 10575 if your on 10549.4 or earlier (I think 10572 as well not sure)
  • Can anyone demonstrate what how a GIF sent in the messaging app functions? Does it animate inline or do you have to open it to see it animate?
  • Animates inline ;)
  • Oh! I'm excited for this! Haha
  • Is that only to Skype contacts or SMS too?
  • Believe it said in the messages app. So, I'm assuming that's SMS. 
  • Really impatient now for official windows 10!
  • Owner of a 2 year old Lumia 925 here, you can absolutely install it on your phone. Compared to the previous build it feels like a completely different OS. Amazing work, looking forward to a new one.
  • Thanks for the info, will try it out on my 925 as well
  • 925 here, should I take the plunge!? I need good battery life, I know its too early for you to tell me BUT is the phone getting super hot? or has it drained a lot since you finished the install??
  • Oh my, I look forward to 575 on my L920 now!
  • Changing the default search engine in Edge does work!   It shows Bing as default. Navigate to Google.com, then go into your Edge settings and change the default search engine. Google will appear (eventually - mine took two goes, or maybe I needed to wait!).
  • I don't want to roll back... That's the only keeping me back.
  • It don't take long at all
  • It's not time that I'm worried about. I don't have any free spots on Groove music availible, and had to delete one the other week so I don't have any way to download the music.
  • Reseting ur device doesn't take a groove music spot the name of the phone may change but device is still the same and u can call tech support to get past the 30 day thing I do it all the time
  • That depends on where you live and how much time you have. Where I live, I'll be lucky if it takes less than 10 hours for the entire process (I've done this now a couple of times), because internet is soooo slow and cuts out all the time, which seems to give the updating processes and things hickups (they freeze (potentially for hours) and then I have to start all over again, provided the phone doesn't also need to be recovered using WP recovery software).
  • My Lumioa 640 restarted then just stopped.... Hmmm. After a five minutes (or so) it fired and is at the "We're Getting There..." Whew. Thouight I killed it
  • My phone just said another update needs to be installed (just installed current preview) and is (cogs turning) installing now!?! Is there already a fix or is this normal? Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • Just a config update.
  • Thank you! For everything you do! Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • Daniel please tell MS to send the update regular, BC I got Windows RT and I can't roll back
  • You have a voice too, try uservoice. Dan doesn't work for MS
  • That looked to be a seriously quick camera load time.. Certainly piqued my interest..
  • This is good news. I feared Win 10 Mobile was far from complete, but it appears good progress has been made. I rolled my 920 back to 8.1 because it's my daily driver and even the most current builds were very clunky. I'll stick with 8.1 for now, though. I stopped at the Microsoft store today, but they didn't have any 950s to marvel at.
  • rolled back, upgrading in progress...    
  • Now the real question is, is this build daily driver ready? My L1520 seems to be screaming at me... UPDATE ME!
  • I'm running the last build as my daily driver on my 1520 and it is pretty smooth already. If this build improves on that, I'd say it is daily driver material (if you don't have an issue with the few know bugs that is).
  • The last build was pretty smooth but had immensely horrible battery life and apps would take a very long time to load after crashing or being force closed. This time around everything is a massive improvement on the already good build. I suggest it highly.
  • Better than the last build? It must really be off the chain.  This last build keeps a smile on my face.  But back to 8.1 I go.
  • This indeed is the best build yet. I had each build since day one.
  • It seems better than previous build.
  • Anyone knows what whether app was that on Daniel's phone in the video? Was that MSN Weather?! Seems different, and pretty.
  • Might be weather channel
  • Yes weather channel starts off with "it's amazing out there"
  • Weather Channel. "It's amazing out there" confirms it for me.
  • Not being able to review a picture taken was also in the last build.
  • yup, and the build before that, at least on my 1020
  • How's the Lumia camera performance on 1020, now that you can keep it with W10M?
  • Well, I'm patiently waiting here, too early for daily use, but by the way, when Windows 10 Mobile will roll on for the Lumia 925, anyone?
  • Same question.. 925 users here
  • Microsoft has said that upgrades for existing devices won't start until December. I imagine that depending on the carrier it could be months after that unless you go with the Windows Insider program.
  • I see, thank you, MP3Mike. Let's hope my carrier roll it out soon...
  • anyone try the USB OTG ?
  • I'll wait to RTM for my L1020, but I'm putting this on my 920 now
  • Looking good! December is shaping up to be a magical month indeed. Star Wars in theaters and W10 on my L640! 
  • Did u see the latest star wars trailer? im so hyped!!
  • Oh yeah! Like 50 times already... :D
  • This is not a turning point if every update (before RTM) requires us to revert back to W8.1... before our phone kaput ?
  • the next build which will be available early next week will not require you yo revert to 8.1. That being said its a good way for MS to test the update path from 8.1 as we near rtm and if you are a true tester you wont mind reverting back to help them out with feedback.
  • Thanks for the info..glad to know tht..
  • Don't mind rolling back myself but my usb port is flaky and so i don't trust it to reflash properly as the last time I had to use the reboot loop to force flash whilst holding the usb cable at an angle. So my advice is if you do roll back with a flaky port... wait until rtm lol.
  • Please update it regular....i have a RT
  • W10M Challenge: How not to share photos really fast.
  • why wechat on windows 10 mobile hangs when using video call?, anyone exp. it?, thats the reason i always roll back my phone to 8.1.
  • Downloading........
  • And about android??
  • My first install didn't go so smoothly but I did see some changes in Settings and the Storage app that looked a little off. They didn't match the rest of the OS style. I'm doing a second try and will hopefully have a better look.
  • I didn't get my voice mails and text messages to carry over like before. Grrr. Luckily I still have on my other phone. Anyone else text and voice mails not sync?
  • Whoops they just showed up. I turned off message sync restarted phone and went into messaging and turned it back on and they came back. YIPEEE
  • I can't roll back my M8 the tool never finds it!!!!
  • Mines does perfect even locked mine before in bootloader, my m8 has had every issue, not charging, bootloader not recognized, drivers quit working, yet it's here like a champ, that I hate- miss my 1520 that I bought and paid for
  • my acer m220 is still stuck on an older build and wont update.
  • Maybe I'm being paranoid but notification center had still some latency period from the time of interaction to when it flies out. I mean it should be indiscernible to human eyes the way it is on my Lumia 730 which even has lesser ram and slower processor than 1520. I'm just being nitpicky I guess. I'm sure they will fix most bugs out before official release to the masses. Everything else looked wonderful though.
  • I just rolled back to get the previous build and don't feel like doing it again, so I'm waiting for 10575.
  • The difference is that is is actually worth doing for this build. It's simply streets ahead of anything we have seen previously!
  • Maybe its a mis-type, but Edge already has a progress bar above the address bar. I'm on build 10549 and it's there. Is it different now?
  • I also got this in oldier builds. Seams like an A/B test.
  • I think the progress bar was always there, but it filled too quickly to be noticed in most sites (I don't know the progress of what it was measuring???), especially on a fast connection.
  • That's what I thought. I remembered it being there. I feel like it was measuring connectivity to the site maybe?
  • Is "Change my name" in Cortana fixed? It crashes on previous builds.
  • Tried just now - I have no problems on L930
  • Anyone tried this build on Lumia 920?
  • Update killed my 920, I'm currently running through Device Recovery Tool again.
  • Updated my 930 and did a hard reset straight after but having an issue with not connecting to my MS account properly. I have no e-mail, calendar or contacts.The only thing I've done different to usual installs is I didn't connect to Wifi during setup and setup connect just to my phone network. Tried a few things and nothing seems to be working. Will hard reset and connect to wifi and see if that fixes it.
  • I just got the same message after a reset
  • i did another hard reset and all ok now. didn't connect to Wifi either so that wasn't the issue. Something funky must of happened the first time.
  • Still having an issue looks like it's MS I have no problem browsing through IE, apps try to update but can't without an account being setup URGH!
  • I had the same issue and remedied it the same way. 
  • This build is fantastic
  • "The best one yet?" Well that would certainly be a crown! Currently doing a second reset on my 920 after the W10m update decided to kill it at some point in the process!
  • Hi.. is it possible to share more than 100 files or photos on windows 10 mobile..
  • So wait... You are telling me that windows 10 mobile turned from this looks like it won't be done for several months to this could be done in the next month or two? This sounds like something similar that happened for a Microsoft product... Oh right, this whole thing happened for windows 10 for PC as well... Oh when will we ever learn...
  • What is it's size? 1GB?
  • 800 mb
  • Have had no luck with W10 mobile as of late. This latest update included. My 930 is simply a zombie now. Update failed miserably. Loosing confidence I must say. That iPone looks awfully tempting...
  • if any of you guys actually read stuff before updating you should know certain devices have a black screen for about 10 minutes where it usually show migrating data. So if you didnt know that before upgrading you would probably think the update failed. Devices this bug seem to effect are Icon, 930, 830.
  • Seriously I'm just waiting for the right magical Windows 10 Mobile device to come to T-Mobile and I'll be all set. Doesn't have to be the 950/950XL but I need it to be high end not that cheap Alcatel crap. Samsung, LG, HTC are you out there? Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • I want something like 750 or 850..
  • I guess I could settle for a beautiful midranger too. I wouldn't mind an HTC A9 for Windows version as well. Still waiting to see if the Acer Jade Primo is the real deal or not as well. Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • Do I dare take the plunge on my One M8? I last tried the upgrade around August (forget what build it was) and the dip in performance was really noticeable.
  • No matter what device I try it on, I can never get past 10166. It will never update. I gave up on W10M until its actually released.
  • What exactly you've done to the device ? UPdate the windows insider or simply uninstall/resintall it to get the latest build. Or do the following, use WP recovery tool to revert back to 8.1 and install the Insider (fast ring) and update 10572
  • Ive tried it all.. Ive gone from 8.1 to 10166 and on my 635 920 and 1020 it will never go past 10166. I havent tried since the first or second 500 builds came out, I gave up on the Insider Program... Maybe I'll set the 920 back up in W10, last one I tried I couldnt even use the phone it would never go to the start screen.
  • You can't go from 10166 to 10572, you can only go striaght from 8.1 to 10572. (If you are on 10166 you have to use the recovery tool to go back to 8.1.) Next week they are supposed to release 10575, and for that you can go from 10166 to 10575.
  • Maybe that was the issue, I'll give it a go on my 920 then.. Ive gone back to 8.1 before and it will always go to 10166 though..
  • make sure your phone is set to the fast ring and rebooted before looking for the update, this new build should start downloading.
  • That's really weird. I tried in all of them (635,920 and640) all worked fine. Try going back to 8.1 , use new msft account, register in insider program, then try if your account doesn't work
  • Uber does the same already on WindowsPhone 8.1 ...
  • Hlw staff please request for internet speed meter build app in window 10 .. This will be controlled from data sense app.. We can on or off it from data sense.. It will show us full detail of data usage day wise or month wise by single app usage wise.. Upload and download speed show us in phone status bar.. There is lot of space available.. Please request to microsoft update data sense app with this ability.. Now window 10 work with background work.. So it is easy to add this feature.. Please add it in between battery and sim network where emplty space available.. Please staff .. Huwei mobile also made this feature default.. They also provide user in own build like own app locker, own call recorder, own battery meter, own data sense, own cleaner for clean extra files, own recorder, or many features.. Please say to microsoft add some feature in window 10 also.. Update first data sense.. Please
  • That looks really good! Don't want to roll back to 8.1 on the 920... but this gives hope for fresh life on my wife's phone when the next build hits.
  • Has anyone else had problems pairing their fitbit to these builds? Or with Bluetooth in general? The previous build I had a heck of a time on my 1520.
  • From my experience you have to go through a little dance: Start the Fitbit app Tell the Fitbit app to Sync Now Follow directions: Go to BT settings and pair your Fitbit Return to the Fitbit app Force Close the Fitbit app Start the Fitbit app Tell the Fitbit app to Sync Now Answer Yes when Windows asks if you want to allow the Fitbit app access your Fitbit. I'm hoping it will get better, as Fitbit mentioned something about better BT support coming for Insiders, and not having to manually pair.
       
  • That's quite a dance lol. I'll have to give it a try. Im hoping It gets better as well.
  • This build can be installed directly from 8.1? Or 549 then 572? I hope 1020 will be hood with this build. I miss win 10
  • this build can only be installed from 8.1
  • The build on my Lumia 640 LTE is very responsive. Close to windown 8.1. However, after using for about 2 hrs, the SD has disappeared. I tried to soft reset and restart the phone several times but no luck! Does anyone have this problem?
  • My SD card was never visible once this build was installed.  File Explorer crashes instantly and only the phone shows up in Storage.  Extremely annoying, especially since it is not a seemingly widespread issue.
  • I did hard reset and now the SD card shows up and am installing map to it.
  • This is amazing compared to 8.1 and all previous builds.
  • Any improvement on People Hub? The one thing that keep me from upgrading my daily driver.
  • Few minor hiccups and a few apps still don't work (here's looking at you Domino's), but overall it is a MAJOR improvement over the last build. Very snappy. Only annoying problems I've run into is apps not closing when you hit the back button, only restarting from the splash screen, and some positioning errors in the start tile arrangement mode. Now if we can only get Hey Cortana and personally created ringtones back, I'll be set.
  • update on 94%, almost done, and guess what, boom!....it failed, try again one more time, if it failed im just gonna wait for a while.
  • failed in what way? are you getting a black screen after the windows logo? if you are your install has not failed, just leave the phone alone for 10 minutes and it will complete the install
  • failed two time at 65% shit!
  • I absolutely agree this is the best release yet on my Nokia Icon. I'm actually going to put down my Nexus 6 for a day or two instead of instantly getting annoyed with every hyped release thus far just to be let down right away with its performance on my Icon. Good job Redmond and Thanks Windows Central!
  • Btw, did anybody else notice the new "Sync Messages Across Devices" setting? :-) oh and the new "Tap to Pay" settings under the NFC menu.....hmmm.......
  • I'm pretty sure this wasn't available on previous build but on Lumia 930 we can now change Display - size of text. Bringing it down to 250% or 225% gives us an extra row or actions! yeehooo!
  • Changing dpi was there in last build
  • Guys how much data required for this upgrading process..??
  • I will withold my judgement until 48 hrs passes. Last two builds started out great but eventually became unusable with runaway processes scorching the phone and killing battery life.
  • Daniel, you mentioned that, "Edge overall feels more polished". Do you know if drop-down menus are finally working? After rolling back and updating to 10549 I was annoyed to find that these still did not work. The page refreshes instead. I remember this was actually mentioned back in the Edge AMA that MS did and they said they were working on it.
  • Missing icon when a secure vpn connection is active ( fixed )
    New sound for battery low notifications.
  • Loving this build!
  • So far I am loving this build!
  • Awesome...thanks, Daniel. This is very encouraging :)
  • Build looks and feels good..liking the extra touches like on the one handed half screen function.
  • Is the controller connectable in this build?
  • What's the download size of this build?
  • Still unable to use cortana in australia, despite it supposedly being available here now, think its tied to the speech downloading error.
  • I can on both 735 and 532. Need to install and set Australian speech. BTW Asutralian cortana voice is horrible!
  • I get an error any time I try to download Australian speech
  • I have the same issue. Only with the speech pack.
  • I'm scared!!! :(
  • ^This....
  • Can finally install Canada English and Cortana working again in Canada.
  • would be nice if the same were true on the insider program for win 10. Canada does not work.
  • this build is feeling alot like a RTM smooth sofar battery seems better
  • Call me when you can text directly from the Messaging app and it can show you your text message history.
  • Any idea when it will be released for slow ring
  • probably after 3 days
  • Can anybody confirm whether this build has '3G only' option under sim settings ?
  • Options are 2g 3g 4g.
  • Damn MS
  • Hey Daniel it would be really great if you shoot a video reviewing this build on a low end device.
  • Migrating your data (step 5of 9) 63% for 30 mins. Lumia 930
  • This may be ready for daily driver use, I'll have yo test it on my secondary phone (a Lumia 520) before I put it on my main phone (a Lumia 640).
  • Guys can i get this build from 10512 to 10572 . I'm currently using 10512
  • lets read the article, shall we?
  • should read the article i think. but for all on here that keep asking the same Q. You have to downgrade to 8.1 before you can install this build. Next week build will let you update without reverting back to 8.1
  • The lock screen image does not rise up with the time when swiping up. Time moves but image stays
  • I can't believe they're going to release Windows 10 without swipe gestures to go back and forward pages in the web browser. It took forever to get it in Windows Phone and now they removed it! Everytime they change something they forget to put freaking features back!
  • Unfortunately for me, these improvements are too little, too late.
  • Nobody cares.
  • I have a few apps grayed out that I cannot uninstall. Glance keeps saying that there is an update, but errors out when trying to download the update. I guess I will try a hard reset yet again.
  • Not sure about you all, but my phone says this build is downloading, looks like a reset might not be necessary for me at least
  • Oh, never mind...
  • Did that fixed the issue?
  • But can I see calendar events I just added? That was my main reason for rolling back to WP8.1 on my 930. It was so frustrating. If you can confirm this is working and I'll gladly make the jump!
  • Exciting news! However I will wait till the OS is released to the public! It really shows that Microsoft and its team will get there on time!
  • Anyone has downgrade issue?
  • Is usb otg feature added in this build?
  • Insiders learn your lesson !!!!
    You Can never know what is around the corner yes we all agreed that things are a mess and software would never be ready for release in time and it is the same thing with win 10 on desktop where only the 2-3last builds had made a crazy improvement
    So congratulations for your long patience!!!
  • Off topic:
    I dont get why my 640xl ds (non lte) got build 10166. I chose the slow ring for obvious reasons. Checked phone update and it says up to date. Any help would be appreciated.
  • You have to be in the fast ring to get this update
  • Seems all my messages backup/phone logs didnt come back :(
  • Did they bring 3g. &4g only option back????
  • This build is insanely better on my 920! The notification center delay after I swipe down to view it is gone, and apps and settings launch faster. I'm still going to wait for the RTM build before considering using W10 mobile on my daily device.
  • I'm using build 10549.4 should I have to rollback to 8.1 to get the build 10572? Cuz when I check for updates it shows as your service is up to date.
  • has anyone installed it on 512mb ram?? i have build 10536.1004. so i would like to know about the performance in 10549 and 10572.
  • Ive try 549 on my 720, its better than previous build. But not good enough for me, on 549 we can set display smaller, and its great for me, photos app better, and other great step. But for performance on my 720 not good as expected. Some app close when screen locked and the app cannot open for a while, heating issue, so i decide to roll back and get 8.1 update 2. After done, 10572 coming.. Ohh meen.. :-o
  • Device *
  • lumia 720
  • hai    am not getting windows 10 preview build for phone, my phone is lumia 530 dual sim. Previously i installed 10536 build  on my device but after doing reflash using windows device recovery tool iam unable to get update, i already enrolled in windows insider program...please help me guys.. my device has os version -8.10.14234.375..
  • Windows 10 isn't safety yet like edge firewall etc.
  • anyone else seeing issue: "Your Passwords won't sync unitl you verify your identity on this device" but verify button doesnt work?
  • Good now release the 950 already!
  • Has anybody had any luck on the Icon?
    For me, maybe due Verizon, it's becoming clear that MS has no intention of making W10 Mobile work with the icon. Mostly with stuff that works in WP 8.1.
    - hey Cortana doesn't work
    - motion data doesn't work with the MS Health app, until 10572 it worked with the far superior MSN health app.
    - Still is no way in the Mail app to empty trash/junk like in almost all mail apps.
    - calendar app is ok, but it has all but ruined Chronos Calendar. You can look but not add / change anything. Beginning to wonder if there's any hope for the 950 & 950 XL. At this point, I have very little faith that MS will ever make Windows 10 Mobile work with the Icon.
  • you do realize your testing a beta OS and yes there will be issues from build to build. I have an icon in canada so dont use anything verizon on it. It runs very fast and very smooth on this build, the dpi scaling is great.
  • This build is a night and day difference from the last one. It's super fast and really good!!! I'm happy with this phone now big time!!!! Good job!!
  • YES BUT sms backup not working (again).
  • Same here :(
  • Am I the only one that is having issues with this build seeing my SD card? 
  • NO. Few more people have complained about this issue in comments above.
  • Did the rollback to 8.1 and upgraded to 10, Build 10572, then did another hard reset. It's considerably faster response than 10549 and smoother scrolling.  Apps I've stored on the SD card from build 10549 are not showing up in this build, but still taking up space on my SD card. How can I make them show up or mass delete them at once? I cannot find them on the SD card using the File Explorer app. I have lots of other stuff on the SD card, so don't want to format it.    Here+ still error updating in the Store... UGH!!!!!
  • in storage sense use save new app in SD card. when the apps get downloaded it will restore the previous data saved in SD card. i have not updated to 10572 but this must help unless there is problem in the build.
  • In a pc, enable show hidden files and OS files and then check SD card. All the files will be shown.
  • Can't restore my SMS, I back to 8.1 using the recovery tool, did a hard reset, put my credentials I got my emails back but not sms, any advise?  
  • Go to messsage ...... Setting... Select Download msg frm anytime
  • Didn't work for me. I can't sync my sms. :(
  • Some part of the article says ' it's returning to the 8.1 standards.' Is that what w10 gonna do? Actually it's supposed to be an upgrade. Better and better and functions. What have we gotten yet? Other OSs are miles ahead and we are still struggling over some trivial issues like OTG pattern lock. Smooth working build than a previous one makes us exhilarated. And yes don't tell me that 'its still a beta' crap. Absolutely don't. And yes msft, the UI of W10 is ugly as fuck.
  • 10575 is on the way..so chill out..u won't need to rollback to 8.1.
  • go buy another phone then simples..
  • Pathetic! FYI I've been using WP since the beginning. I'm a huge fan of nokia as well as wp. So expecting better is no longer a crime. I was just being honest.
  • I agree with last comment. UI is very ugly indeed. Lots of empty space, bad colors, numerous problems with live tiles, poor choices in setting for main screen. That a side, folder is better then before. Need more stability, more ideas and lots of improvements in design. Base is good, just work on it. Progress in last two months was way to slow and make people very nervous.
  • Windows mobile team should make new features now. continuum is there only on 950xl. Universal apps are great. But now something new for like interactive live tiles where we long press the tile and swipe for up and down for watching headlines of news andb getting sports results.
  • Win10 Mobile needs to be stable, first and foremost. Then it can start adding features again.
  • I don't want a lock screen pattern. That's your choice u want it. Better Microsoft gets windows hello on high range snd mid range devices.
  • Haha I don't think it's UI is ugly (but very inconsistent, XBox app being the worst). I totally agree however that for the vast majority of (potential) users there's little or even nothing to be excited about. Cosmetic changes, quite some every-day-use functionality lost, and we're all happy if performance is on par with WP81. Continuum is nice but niche. I'll be staying on WP81 until W10M has reached the level of an upgrade.
  • It's a major achievement if performance can be equal to 8.1. We are talking about a huge OS difference on the same hardware. That is not a trivial matter at all!
  • What is the problem for dual SIM phones? If you reference this in the article, should you not provide a short summary of it?
  • I was wondering the same thing. I currently use a 640 XL dual sim version with only one SIM. I'm curious is using the second SIM slot is what causes issues or simply having it as an option in the phone causes issues.
  • I rolled back yesterday and got Denim update 2 for my Lumia 830 and I'm just gonna wait till the official release of Windows 10 mobile hopefully AT&T don't fuck me over its working amazingly beautiful.
  • Cool
  • Does it play well with the Band 1?
  • Android apps are working on this build??
  • Yes band 1 works great
  • The deal breaker for me is "hey Cortana". Once I can call Cortana with my voice on my 1520, I'll upgrade. Can't wait though!
  • Real nice
  • Awesome Just 1bug..! Lock screen issue still appearing.....!
  • How is the heating of phone issue?
  • No heating issue in lumia 640 but you might be out of luck if you install in 920
  • what issue is that. lock screen works fine on my icon they have even added new animation to it.
  • is there anyone here using lumia 535? i just want to tell how about the lumia 535 touch screen sensitivity of this build? i have this phone last 3 months and no update can fix it..
  • It's a hardware issue man, Microsoft just said that it would fix it with a software update, it's all PR covering their asses. They just made the Lumia 535 screen very bad.
  • why is it my officemate fix her screen sensitivity problem when upgraded to this firmware 02074.00000.15234.28003 but still cant get this kind of firmware i am little upset to MS
  • It is a hardware problem, but not by design like in 640XL, so it can be fixed.
  • I've got a feeling that each new excitement from Microsoft is followed by "but" which take the excitement down.
    "New flagship phones from Microsoft announced" but "they look cheap"
    "New flagship phones are being listed" but "they are selected carrier limited"
    "You can now send SMS from your PC" but "it requires Cortana what cut off big part of users".... Why do they make it so difficult???
  • No heat issue using Lumia 730...!! No issue guys only lock screen issue
  • Here's hoping they can get a build to work with my Icon - I've tried 2 so far and both bricked my phone. Guess I'll wait for final release.
  • Dude U Have To Wait...! After Upgrading to 10... ? It Will take Maximum time to Migration...! Till That Ur Lumia Doesn't respond...!
  • Facebook and twitter should get back their html5 integration. That just works so fucking awesome.
  • I'm on build 10549, but I'm not getting this build. Should I go back to 8.1 to get new build or wait for the update? Thanks.
  • Article says you need to downgrade to WP7, upgrade to WP10, then downgrade to WP8 then try install this build.
  • Also install Android
  • DG to WP7, install Android, UG to WP10, then UG to WP8.1, then install iOS 7.0 then iOS 9.0, then iOS 8.0, then UG to WP10 and you are set. Easy peasy.
  • Dude don't you think we are asking too much. I mean that phone is 2.5 years old now. I'm glad that I'm getting support from windows.
  • Anyone with Icon having issues enabling WiFi. I have error says try restarting phone. I've restarted several times but can't enable WiFi
  • Well,  was going to wait until later until the next build, considering I  rolled back updating to the last build. I decided to go ahead and rollback again, because reading all the good comment has made me a bit impatient. Besides, this is why I signed up. I just rolled back my phone and updating right now...let the fune begin!
  • Microsoft had really done an awesome job with this build, the new features are great surprises. Did anyone else notice that under About Phone it says Windows 10 Mobile and it looks like they have removed the word insider?
  • Yes. It does say just mobile, no insider. We're nearing RTM
  • Nope not best build yet I'm sorry. Lots of bugs going between Phone, People and Messaging app. Lots of crashing and links not working. Tapping on a person sometimes I got contact not found error (first time I've ever seen that). Pressing Send Message on contact doesn't work unless I tap it a few times. After sending a message the message doesn't appear in conversation so you don't know if message sent. Used skype video and couldn't hearother person. Then tryried callign back and call wouldn't go through. Had none of these issue on previous build :( And heating up seems to be back as well. On a lumia 930 :(   UPDATE: having said that noticed not all apps have finished updating and Messaging is waiting for an update so I will update and see if that fixes some issues.
  • Have anyone know what is the name of the controller next to the phone? And it could connect to the phone or not ?(Sorry for my bad English)
  • Your English is fine, it's the limited edition titan fall controller. Not sure if it can connect to the phone.
  • Anyone with dual SIM tried it yet??
  • This looks really good. Anyone tried it on the 640XL?
  • When the 10575 comes out I'll update it to my Lumia 1020!  Daniel, could you send message to folks at Microsoft to dedicate one guy for a day to comb through the windowsphone.uservoice.com site. They have made so many great milestones in the past months, don't understand why they don't want to tick those requests as completed (?)
  • Os is not out yet. Not really completed.
  • Dock??
  • Tried to install it after rolling back to 8.1 and it's failed twice! The phone doesn't start. Anyone having probs with this build on 930?
  • Yes, my lumia 930 does not turning on.
    Nokia logo, then microsoft blue flag and after that I see black screen. :D
     
  • I saw a tweet from Gabe Aul that said when you get to the black screen - just leave it there, it will eventually finish updating. 
  • As DMCarver and others have mentioned, Gabe Aul said that u have to wait 5-10min after the upgrade. I did that and it now works perfectly. Migration of data is slow... taking ages for the sms texts to appear
  • Openvpn support?
  • Also Edge is crashing on Icon
  • Still no new message count on live tiles if you pin multiple inboxes to the start screen. It inky world if you pin one.
  • Good release.
    Only thing not working for me is,
    Pining contact group to start
    And now when watching videos on YouTube or other players and sound is off, a and forward or go back on a video, the pitch sound bug is there now. Also known from normal video player. So no secret YouTube watching on work with no sound and move back in videos without colleges hear my phone :(
  • And swipe is slower then on 8.1
  • What could be the problem in dual sim phone as I am planning to install this build in L730 ?
  • How about loading and resuming, is it gone now
  • Where is Lumia Camera ?!?! .. I press camera button .. and the camera starts but no buttons !?!? Any idea 
  • my lumia camera is working after i open the store search the lumia camera and after i load its working now  
  • Seems quicker
  • You mean "seems faster"
  • Cant download keyboard or language options. Had no issue on last build. Everything else feels pretty good though. Typing in particular seems to have gotten better for me.
  • Reenroll in the insider app
  • Let all apps be downloaded and then install Windows insider (if you don't have it already ) and reenroll. Then try again downloading keyboard
  • When windows 10 mobile has final release frnds.
  • If you mean the release, maybe december. But wont be final..
  • I'm super pumped!
  • We finally have more info about the "others" folder. :')
  • We finally have more info about the "others" folder. :')
  • after the upgrade from 8.1, do i still have to do a hard reset on the phone?
  • Yes... Its f***kg procedure... Rather than developing things lets develop directly updating from one build to another...
  • ..still beta/preview. A situation that often comes with a few disadvantages as well as no guarantees.
  • How is the performance of windows 10 mobile on the devices like the 720?
  • So does the hotspot work like the way it does in android..? I want to know if wifi file sharing will work like in other platforms...
  • Is it still recommended to do a phone reset after upgrading?
  • My 1520 overheats during the first stage of the install, reboots, then states low battery (battery was full at start) and stays in a reboot loop....
  • Unplugging and replugging tends to resolve that. I have the same thing on my 1020 from time to time (even on 8.1).
  • Has anyone with a duel sim done the update and if so how is it?
  • Probably won't get much response as there's a few known issues that affect dual SIM phones.
  • Hell! Maps on SD card! Finally!
  • Any VZW L928 successes? I ash waiting for new 950 to jump ship to tmobile or att
  • All seems good except it is heating like hell... A phone call and i had to insert ear jack.. :) Lumia 925
  • I like what I see, but is it worth it for daily use?
    [Lumia 830]
  • there's a "vibrate when my call is answered" toggle in settings>System>phone.....
    VPN shortcut is missing in action center for L1520.... there are 5x3 shortcuts now.....
    and also one of the notification sound from windows 8.1 is back I suppose
  • Big question for me is; If the messaging and notification sharing between the phone and pc will be 100% Cortana dependent, and therefore not available in non-cortana markets?? If so, it will be a huge miss!
  • Wow. This build is incredible so far. I didn't realize how much of a performance sacrifice was being made on previous builds when they were running well (and not actively making my phone unusable.) So far a massive improvement.
  • How Is the build on 512 Mb devices like Lumia 720?
  • Hey Daniel, at 0:26 the notification toggles usually have 16 icons:4 rows and 1 single icon on the top. Why now have only 15 icons? There's a settings to this? Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • I've just taken the plunge !! It's really nice great work MS!
  • Omg, it was SO worth update process on my 1520 for this build. Wow, what a difference!
  • Yep so far it's been great. None of not loading the home page while downloading podcasts.
  • Another very very important feature left is for us to be able to edit contact labels, those Mobile 1 , mobile 2, work 1 etc.
  • Store and a couple other apps would kick me to desktop after pressing their tile... i am doing a hard reser now to see what happens...
  • This build works pretty well on Lumia 535. Smooth! Windows Camera doesn't work well though. Screen keeps jumping.
  • also for me on lumia 735
  • Hi all, does automatic upload of photos and documents to OneDrive work properly in this build? I had issues with this on previous builds and therefore rolled back to WP8.1. Thanks
  • Currently on the last build which I'm happy with, its starting to feel right and is pretty responsive so to get further improvements, I'll live with the rollback and roll forward to the latest build. Wm10 is starting to feel as good as w10.
  • Do heutro or oni: light control work properly in this build?
  • I have turned Hey Cortana off on Win 10 because my Surface would compete with my 1520 with it enabled on both devices. How is that sorted in this new release for mobile, or do both your computer and phone jump into action when you call Cortana?
  • This build is excellent. It's like night and day difference from 10539 on my 1520. Everything is fast and fluid, and small issues aside, the performance is close to 8.1 levels. I do have one issue, and wondering if anyone else has come across it - none of my old SMS's will sync up. I've received new ones and they are fine (and I can see them in Outlook.com backed up), but the phone will not restore my previous messages. Any ideas?
  • All good now... seems like the restore just took some time. In my case it was about 12+ hours before the messages appeared, but they are all there now. Looking forward to the next build.
  • This is the best build so far. Used the skype chatting feature on desktop and phone, they work integrated. Great to see. Also more room on screen for more tiles on my 930. 4 rows now available. Great to see. Hopefully I do not have to charge my 930 twice a day anymore. Just hoping they are near RTM, so they can release the 950XL    
  • Fck this app cant evwn find the comments i make :((((((
  • Lumia 530, hard to update :(
  • Confidence @ 100% for W10M!
  • battery drain, how far can it go as compared to 8.1 on 920? anyone please!
  • want transparency in action centre like pc, and settings hate the full black
  • Anyone else with a Lumia 930 with 'Hey Cortana' not working?
  • My lumia 930 does not work at all after update xD
  • Oh crap, sorry to hear that. Mine gave me a bit of a scare too when it went to a black screen after the windows logo for 5-10 minutes during update. Although I like the speed and general stability improvements a lot, I'm not liking the crazy battery drain and the heating. Also live tile is not working for Whatsapp and FB Messenger which is a bit annoying.    
  • Hopefully the 950's can roll back to get new builds
  • Is the Microsoft band connection for all features still broke?
  • Is anyone else noticing that the phone is Hot??? and my battery on my 1520 is slipping away. I turned off Location and Wifi now.Lets see if that helps. But the build quality is much better. I still have seen some of the VERY Annoying Resuming.... Screens.    
  • My 1520 got quite hot for the first few hours with this build. I think all the updating, installations and caching of data (eg creating photo thumbnails etc) took its tool. It's next day now, and my phone is running nice and cool like before, and battery is holding well.
  • Best build so far. Apps launch quicker. Its a big leap from the previous build
  • removed wrong thread
  • That lock screen notification is not working on this build.
  • I did not need to roll back again to 8.1 (i did this last build) all i did was run windows insider app again and then check for updates lumia 1520 your milage may vary :¬)
  • @Dan phone can't install some system apps like glance and contacts+message restore, etc. These are crucial apps, you know.
  •   I am suprised W10M & 8.1 users are not voting for this!!!!!!!!! BECOZ THIS AFFECT EVERY USER WITH CONTACTS HAVING MORE THAN ONE NUMBER! maybe its me and just a few others who are having a challenge on this issue.  https://windowsphone.uservoice.com/forums/101801-feature-suggestions/sug...
  • Anyone have Glance Screen and Block and Filter updates that keep appearing in the Store? Glance errors out when downloading, and Block constantly updates. Everything else seems to work. Have reset three times.
  • I am, I can't open glance to adjust. Somehow it has set itself to always on, I keep it on peek.  The option is there under Extras, but once I click on glance, it just says Loading... Never actually opens.
  • Hi, about glance, try with sys app pusher
  • Installing right now! ^^
  • And here my L820 is still stuck on QHSUSB_DLOAD :(
  • Hi, I tried to update my NL830 to this build. I was waiting for a stable build, and finally this one seemed like being the turning point. Unfortunately, my phone is kind of bricked. If I try to turn it on, It displays the Microsoft logo, then goes black, and that's about all it does right now. The battery was fully charged when I attempted the upgrade, and I havn't touched it during the procedure. I am truly disappointed, as you noted this is good for a daily driver... Well, my daily driver phone is completely screwed now. :(
    EDIT: It does not display the Microsoft logo anymore. If I restart it, it vibrates, displays the Nokia logo for a few seconds, and then completely stops working.
  • Gf has 920, I have 1020, hope W10 works on these devices well enough to get me from launch to Surface Phone.
  • It took me 2 attempts to get this build to install on my 1020. The first time it just refused to boot up once the update was finished. Maybe I didn't leave it long enough while it was at the 'black screen' stage? Who knows? I thought I had waited long enough so I decided to revert back to 8.1 abd try again. The 2nd time the update went though as usual without the black screen. Wow! This is the one we have been waiting for! Once all the usual background updating had finished, which takes a couple of hours, and a soft reset or 3 had been performed my 1020 is working the way it used to on 8.1. For the past few builds there have been a few lingering bugs such as very flaky notifications and live tiles but this build seems to have finally squashed all those annoying problems and things just work! Action center drops down instantly, gone is the lag. My battery has been terrible for the past couple of builds, often dying within just a few hours of taking it off charge. The estimated time has been around 9-10 hours on a full charge but after installing this build its sitting at 1 day 4 hours, this is more like it! Not being able to attach pictures to whatsapp etc is a pretty big bug for me though so hopefully this will be sorted in the build due early next week. I always had faith that MS would get things sorted in time for the new handsets coming shortly, despite all the doom and gloom around here at times. It's been an interesting and sometimes frustrating ride for the past few months but it looks like its very close to the end. Can't wait for my 950XL!!
  • Does that titanfall controller still work for you???
  • This is incredible, it works buttery smooth and fast. I dare to say that as fast as 8.1 was working before trying Insider on my Lumia 920. If there was a build to win people over, this is it. And it will even get better :) Good times for Windows Mobile fans, and a bright future coming ahead! Congrats to the hardworking team!
  • Why we can't see the video link in the mobile app ? Windows 10 PC
    Because if nobody is talking about the video, i can't guess there is a video in this article...
  • So shall I install the latest on my L520?? For daily driver
  • I want apps upgraded to ios and android.most of the apps in wp are bullshit.very not competative as other is
  • Question, is there still a black screen under the lock screen ? Or they finnally fixed it like in the 8.1 to have the Tiles right below the lock screen when you push it up? Also with the previous build i couldn`t save to OneDrive my full 20 mpx photos (only 1080p were uploade) or even be able to zoom them in photos. The new MS camera removed the Lumia Camera. The Photo apps also didn`t turn my photos in landscape when i was turning my phone. The contacts that i had on screen put in small tile size were actually round (how stupid is that ? to have circles between squares). Hope they fix these issues ... and why don`t we have anymore full size pictures of our contacts when we call them ? instead we get that little circle on top of the screen... Also i find it stupid that there are no "Default Apps" ... click`ing on FB links should open the FB App like you get on Android .. instead you get the browser popping up ...same goes for YT videos ... you can`t put a default app for YT etc ... MS really needs to adress "Default Apps" if they want to succed...
  • Mail app is not opening in landscape mode. Not sure why they removed this. I am using 1520 and this will be a nice feature on bigger screens.
  • Can you set any type of Xbox one wallpapers or art as a wallpaper to your phone? I know it's nerdy but it's getting close to Halo:)
  • Installed in L730. Till now working fine. Able to share pics through WhatsApp also. Dont know whether its released in india or not but Cortana is also working.yes battery is draining fast.
  • Question for anyone who might venture this far into the comments section. I currently still have 8.1 on my L925 because it's the only phone I have and I didn't want to take the plunge yet. But by the sound of things this one might be the one I try. Since I don't have to roll back to 8.1 I should be good to go. But in one of the original articles it said that the next build should fix that issue anyway. So if you upgrade to this one, will you then have to roll back to 8.1 another time to get the next build that finally fixes this issue, or will you be able to upgrade straight to the next build? Thanks!
  • I believe it is the one after next. So at most you might be stuck with it a week or two. As it is and as you have read this is a very stable update. It's the first one I am happy to use on my daily driver (and will be doing so). It's actually pretty damn good and a huge step forward.
  • Yeah, I've been anxious to update but I just don't have the time or funds on hand right now to be doing resets all the time or not having it work correctly on my main phone! So you think I should wait for the next build if I don't want to have to roll back again?
  • HTC one m8 take ages to charge after updating to 10572 any help plz. and i can't properly type in ap review colum in windows store. auto screen rotation is also not working as it should be. Windows camera on HTC with HDR not working as it should be. new FACEBOOK BETA app is nice looking but way behid as compare to ANDROID & iOS. i read that FACEBOOK launching its own apps for FACEBOOK so Why microsoft doing this in newer beta??
  • Battery Battery Battery Battery Battery......draining fast in L730.....rest all fit and fine.....
  • Did this build addressed the loading start/home screen loading issue in certain Lumias like 920 and 1020 ?
  • One advice: try to upgrade from build 10549 first. My Lumia 930 (UK) started to upgrade automatically from build 10549. I didn't have to revert back to win 8.1....I'm so excited and can't wait for the upgrade to finish.......yiiiii hoooooooouuuuuu! 
  • Proximity sensor not working....
  • Since upgrading I can no longer make the Facebook tile large, only small and medium work. Anyone else seeing this?
  • I remember connecting my Palm TX PDA to a bluetooth-enabled dumbphone, and sending SMS directly from the Palm TX. So, that thing of sending SMS from the PC via the smartphone, is kind of ancient magic.
  • I'm still stuck on the previous build, waiting for a build I can direct upgrade to. I cant do a fresh install back to 8.1 currently. Still,glad they are making some real progress on this. Hopefully we continue to get some nice graphical updates and new features.
  • Can i make skype calls??
  • For people running the 1020.  What is the camera and navigation working like?  I reverted back to 8.1 because of these two major issues with my 1020 on w10m.  Looks like we are closer to a final release tho.
  • Have no lost all Lumia apps after a reset.  Going to try and figure out a way to get them back...especially the Lumia Camera which I need on my 1020.
  • Found it in the library.  I say upgrade now!
  • I'm still going to hold off until the next build before I put it on my daily driver. From what I have seen with what Dan has shown, the builds look better and better.
