    Yes, I am downloading the update too. But wasn't that for insiders only?

    That's what I read as well but apparently it's not just for insiders. Mine has almost finished installing, I don't believe there will be any changes/new features apart from bug fixes.

    No problem, I really prefer bug fixes rather than new features. There is plenty of time for that in the future. Glad that the Groove bug has been fixed.

    I wasn't aware of the Groove bug as I use Spotify but Spotify is in need of an urgent update!

    I don't know about your experience with today's update but so far my BLU runs so much faster and it's not as buggy as it used to be with the first WDRT update

    Well that's what you get if you buy junkie brands. Sorry but why didn't you guys buy a Lumia. Nokia or MS care stores are amazing even today.

    Still, automatic brightness sensor reacts good when exposed to light but forgets to turn it low when i take out the flashlight. It bugs me.

    Scour through Olx. An almost new 730 or 735 or 830 can be picked for as little as 8000.

    I personally bought the WIN HD LTE on Amazon UK as a backup phone (dual sim + the 1gb ram was a bonus) as well as for it's price at the time (black Friday deal) 50 ($70) inc tax and shipping. At the time it seemed like a great deal as most android phones at this price point are just slow and useless. No complaints here, after using the phone with today's build I feel that my phone is even snappier than what it was with 8.1.

    Yeah, comparing with a lumia 640 (which has like a double price compared to this one on my country) this is a steal. And also has better processor, dual sim with support for LTE 2600 TDD (which is a must for me).
    Plus that i love the design. The software is there, there are just small things to be fixed (like the light sensor which is not that small tbh).

    Also, "next" button from groove menu (in lockscreen) is not working. Although the flickering is gone.

    Flickering is indeed gone, however still some song name lags here. Also I can switch songs when playing in groove from my lock screen.

    Otherwise - all seems to be good and performance is better.

    because MS withdrew Lumia 640 from online stores when they launched Lumia 550. I do not prefer the 640XL version. So I was forced to look for alternatives and found this BLU phone for 5100Rs on Amazon :) . It has 4G also which is not there in 640 (I know 640 LTE is there but that also is not available in India)

    Just to point out, try to use this device (BLU Win HD LTE) and it is much better than lumias even double the price of this phone. It is not at all a junky product. I am using it as a daily driver and is much snappier than my Lumia.

    Problems that I've found on this build: if I set on groove the 1 song repeat toggle=> I am unable to play next song from lockscreen or other menu.
    The light sensor (for automatic brightness) doesn't revert when exposing to low light conditions (the screen remains to high brightness).

    I haven't had the chance to test out the camera in low light after the upgrade to Windows 10. But, now we get the same interface as Lumia Camera, which I really missed on 8.1. I took a couple of shots, and those turned out quite nice - better than anything I ever managed with the native Camera app on 8.1.

    Let me tell you that this handset is much more better than the so called plastic lumia. It has snapdragon 410 64 bit cpu compared to 640xl lte which has 400. 640xl lte still costs 17000 INR.Give me one Luma model name which gives the specs offered by Blu.I really appreciate if you really have serious conecerns about this phone and have some ideas to get this phone better. All we here in this forum are really effortlessly helping each other. And this phone is really getting better day by day. I bought this phone from amazon india @6000 INR and now the price is 9499 INR.So please don't give any negetive labels about this brand.

    Your memory card data remains as it is except the apps installed on SD card won't work after the flashing. WhatsApp backup also remains as it is and can be used to restore after installing WhatsApp again. All data in your phone memory will be lost.

    Steps to be followed before flashing:
    1. Contacts and Messages: Although they get backed up automatically on the cloud if your phone settings are set as such but still to be on the safe side, download "contacts+messages backup" app published by Microsoft in the store. After installing, the app will not be shown in app list but in settings. Open settings and it will show up in the last of the menu, open it and take backup. Backup is saved on your memory card so make sure you have inserted one.
    PS: After logging in through your Microsoft account, contacts will show up automatically so you won't need to restore, but still having a backup is never a bad thing.

    2. App Data: App data of some participating apps would be saved on cloud automatically (OneNote, Asphalt 8 etc.) and will get restored. For some you will have to take specific backup like Whatsapp. For others, the app data will be wiped completely unless you have a specific backup. So make it sure by navigating your apps list that you don't have any important data in App data.
    PS: If you have any app to lock/hide your pictures, export them from the app to your memory card as they will be lost with the app data.

    3. Songs/Videos/Documents/Pictures: This all media saved on your phone memory will get wiped, so move these to your memory card or take a backup by connecting to PC. Media on memory card will remain as it is so no need to worry about that.

    This is all you need to do before flashing your device.

    If I have missed something please suggest so that I can add it up in this post itself.

    If it goes south, is there a way to get to 8.1? Because the WDRT does not support it natively. I'm downloading it now and I want to make sure I don't brick it as it is my main phone. Atleast until my mi5 ships.

    It is very important to have sd card while upgrading windows 10.

    for whatsapp:- there is an auto generated backup on your sd card called winphonebackup under Whatsapp folder. Now to get the latest backup:
    1) open whatsapp then tap on settings.
    2)tap on chats and calls then tap on backup It will save your latest backup on sd card in winphonebackup folder.

    For your apps and games backup:
    1)Download a small app from windows store called Files by MS corp. transfer your music,documents and any other important data to sd card using thisapp.

    2) Tap on settings then tap on backup. Connect your phone to the wifi and tap on backup now. This will store your apps and messaging data to the onedrive cloud.

    WDRT flashes WP8.1 ROM on your phone and not W10M. After getting the suitable WP8.1 ROM, you can download Upgrade Advisor app from the store and get updated to W10M. In case anything goes wrong, you can revert back to WP8.1 with the already downloaded image on WDRT (you don't need to download it again).
    Just give it (W10M) some time to install and there are very slim chances of going wrong.

    Please note that W10M will need to be downloaded and installed more than once. (Different builds).
