    Is anyone able to tell me what is the most stable version to use as a daily driver with the least amount of issues? Also, what would the issues be if I do upgrade through the Insider Program. I figure HTC or Verizon won't be updating this phone anytime soon or ever.

    Has anyone else seen the phone not able to connect a new LTE cell? In other words, move to a new LTE area and the browser can't connect unless yo reboot the phone. Turning on roam seems to fix it but who knows what it is connecting to then. this is build 10586.107

    I've noticed this exact thing, both with my M8 and Lumia Icon, both running 107 on Verizon. So I don't think its a specifically M8 thing. I haven't tried allowing roaming, just rebooting.

    Launching a thread in the text messaging app is an adventure. Often time it's stuck loading and I have to close it and relaunch the app just to view messages.

    Installing build .122 now, let's see what happens. Though the changelog does mention the video bug in video recording, so I am quite hopeful!

    Everytime I try to take a screenshot it makes the sound and everything but on the top of the screen instead of "screenshot saved" it says "Couldn't take Screenshot".Anyone else have that problem??

    .122 is a pretty good build, still testing though...

    Damn. With the new Camera app update, video recording is capped at 1920x1080/30fps... Previously I could easily do 60fps... :(

    I'm hoping the M8 is getting a firmware update soon to handle all the new Win10Mobile things / I'm on Verizon's variant, BTW.

    Download and install the Windows Insider app from the store and then join the insider program using your Microsoft account. After joining, sign up for prerelease builds (third category I believe and the safest as these are the builds being released to manufacturers) and the update will download to your phone.

    Yup, if you're on the fast ring it won't work. Switching to slow ring did the trick for me. Fast ring is only for the phones that actually shipped with WM10 now.

    I'm hoping for a fast update from Verizon on my M8... Since the Insider Preview came very fast to the M8, I think they will update in the end. Just wondering on the timelines...

    Yep, exactly; I've had to call Straight Talk three times now usually around my plan's monthly renewal date; three times I've been told Verizon is upgrading their LTE services. I have no idea what that means. I have to use Verizon's APN settings not Straight Talk on Verizon; they're different, thought Straight Talk never has updated their website to reflect it; it's either vzwinternet or internet, that's it.

    so is .164 now the most current version we (M8) can have?
    03-29-2016 06:01 AM
  19. Merc14's Avatar
    .164 is the latest of teh preview builds. You can select the versions being tested that are less stable by changing your insider category.

    Regarding Build .164: Is there any possibility how to disable the haptic feedback of the touch buttons of our M8? I just think, it causes high battery drain. There is no 'touch feedback' setting listed like in the lumia's to disable it?
