    i still love a phone with a sd card slot and thats probably the only reason why i havent picked on up, do like the samsung though. I just bought a asus tablet and got rid of my linx 10 and its so muc quicker, screen is million times better.

    ive just hard reset my 950 and its my last throw of the device, now i dont know whether to restore from a back up or re install everything, surely everyone cant be re installing everything, it will take me forever, must be a easier way.

    Just installed .71 on my L950 last night. I had my phone freeze 3 times today so far. Clicking the power button only shows black screen, and one time I just saw the 3 onscreen keys. Soft reset each time brought the phone back to life. Otherwise seems okay.

    I so far haven't had any issues with the .71 build. Battery life remains unchanged, no random reboots, apps execute as before without errors. I'm keeping my fingers crossed but all seems well on this end.

    if you are having major issues at this point on your 950's then I would say you have some apps running that is killing your device or you have a dud device.
    I have the latest build running on several phones from the 925, Icon, 1520, 1020 and the 950XL and is running pretty damn good across all devices.

    Battery life sucks on this build. Seems like they fixed the bluetooth related phone freeze ups which always required a soft-reset. one step forward... one step back...

    The battery drain has calmed down for me after the first 2 days. I still don't get what the OS does. It must do things while it's idle like defragmentation, hash checks or who knows. So the battery has gotten better. The crashes I had first 2 days stopped as well. So weird. But I'll see how it goes. Yesterday it was running pretty well and this morning too. Going to cross my fingers.

    There's still the firmware update which i'm waiting for. Granted I already have 15506, some people don't even have that one yet which could make things even worse.

    950xl here.

    tried taking my lumia 950 into CEX , cheeky bar stewards offered me gbp 157 for my 950 which is absolutely brand new no marks, cant believe it. I said i'd evenpart ex against the s6 they had in the window but they were interested. said to try ebay. paid gbp371 for it a couple of months back. so even more determined to get it working now. although i ahve said to the missus that i'll swap it for her 640 and she doesnt want it lol.

    With this build the situation seems improved: in the last few day I didn't have any strange reboot or lock up.

    yes, mine is driving me crazy, having almost as much trouble as gmail, resetting passsword if you cannot remember password given to me by AT&T. Terrible battery drain, only lasts a couple of hours in use.
    Wish I would have paid more and gotten a better phone. share your misery.

    Works great. My battery last all day with moderate game usage, and heavy web browsing. Everything is snappier including hello login. Now they fixed OneDrive music storage and Groove music, I am really happy.

    On my AT&T 950 it's been better overall. Battery life isn't quite up to par but it's definitely better. Overall stability is better to where now launching camera from lock screen no longer restarts but actually takes a photo. The main downside is every once in a while I get a Loading... or Resuming... screen. Overall doing ok though. Same for my wife's. I also have a family member on a 950XL and he reports it is doing quite well, so far.

    Sounds like you have a hardware issue. There have been some QC issues reported in the past. If you still have it you may want to exchange it.

    Heads up about iPhones too. They aren't prefect as I also own several Apple products. Look up battery and charger problems with Macbooks or video issues. I had all three. Look up apps stuck not updating on iOS. I've had that too. They are good devices but for their premium they still have their issues. Not saying don't switch. It's each to his own but the grass has some weeds on the other side.

    Have a Lumia 950 (dual sim, unlocked, US, T-mobile). Came with build 10586.0. Upgraded with public update to 10586.29, got the first firmware update, updated with Insider to 10586.63, and again to 10586.71. I did not install from back up and never did a hard reset.

    10586.71 runs very smoothly. Most noticeable improvements for me has been performance in Onedrive, File Explorer, and Groove Music apps since build 10586.0 (and whatever version those apps were at the time). Also, phone use to randomly restart, apps used to crash once in while usually only on the first you try to open it, and apps used to stay on "Loading..." screen for a few seconds in older build before actually opening. I don't have those issues anymore since .63 build. Poorly optimized apps like Spotify is still plagued with the "Resuming..." screen when switching between apps. However, no battery drain issue ever. Bluetooth works great on some devices but struggles connecting to some.

    I did have a ridiculous battery drain issue on build 10572 on my HTC One M8 (first W10M build on it), but it is fine now on build 10586.63.

    phone charged twice today, nohing really too hard core in terms of usage, so i dont know whats going on. Ive turned off everything or nearly everything running in the background, im suspect about whatsapp, it gets hot when sending a few messages and looking at pics.

    i'm actaully going to go over old threads about battery drain to see if there is anything else i can turn off. the battery app is saying current discharging is about 9.64% and thats with light use. will monitor it again to see if i can see whats going on, the standard battery use app really only shows screen is the biggest use.
    system 31.%
    display 61.1%
    wifi 7.9%
    mobile date 0.0%


    in use 91.6%
    back ground 8.4%

    I don't have any new issues with the .71. No reboots, few app crashes. I might experience that the keyboard stop working more often with .71, but I'm not sure (and I'm not counting). According to Battery Pro+ I have an average hourly discharge rate of 1,8% today and 3,8% in total.

    .71 is not unstable, at least in my experience. I haven't seen any crashes, reboots since I updated. I am on latest firmware as well.
    However, there are more than one screens which are unfinished, even icons are not correct -- though I forgive because its preview.
    The worst thing is the same old thing and that is the battery life. Some people here and there have quoted better battery life on .71 but I cannot see that on my 950. My battery will only last a day or less even with very light use. If you browse for an hour or so and watch some videos, battery depletion is pretty quick.
    The only savior here is the quick recharge that the device offers... plug into a wall charger for about 30 minutes and voila! You get 100% battery charged.
    For a person who relies on his mobile, the battery issue can be a big one and a big negative for this device.

    I call bs on that but I don't really care. We all want to know others experience and I'm glad it works well for you but that is not the case for everyone so either you are bs'ing us with all those devices or you really lucked out.

    I did a WDRT and then upgraded back to .71 and I can say my experience is a lot better! The only issue I have now is that if you use it for a long period of time, like more than 5 minutes, the battery drain still goes up to 40% per hour. There are days where after 4 hours I'm in desperate need of a charger. Still waiting for that firmware update on ATT

    I really hope, as you are all insiders, that you report all your issues to MS via insider app, as you do report it here.

    Seems they need feedback badly.

    only that they should listen to all the feedback users give...but seems they do not. Users have complained about poor wifi performance for months and still no fix.

    Thats disappointing for sure.

    But it will still be more efficient to write them via feedback app than posting a bad experience here. They rather read the feedback than read up all these fora and comment sections.
