Earlier today, Microsoft released yet another build of Windows 10 Mobile for Insiders on the Fast Ring. Build 10581 is now ready for you to try out.
The good news? Well, there is plenty to go around. For one, for the first time since the last two builds you do not need to rollback to Windows Phone 8.1 first, which gets rid of a pain point. Additionally, performance is outstanding with this build, building on top of the excellent gains earned in build 10572. Indeed, there are some smoother animations like the fade in effect when the lockscreen clears that make using this release more enjoyable.
We've only spent a few minutes with this release, but you can see it in action on our Lumia 1520. For what it is worth, our Hey Cortana would launch for training, but we never got much further than that. Perhaps an app update will come along to address that, or we'll have to wait until the next release. Your mileage may vary.
Finally, we're excited to hear that battery drainage problems should be mostly resolved. We'll have to spend the next few days with it to verify, but it sounds promising.
Let us know in comments your thoughts on build 10581 and if think Microsoft has done a good enough job thus far.
