    Interesting. I used .29 for the first few days on my 950 and didn't care for it. Mainly it was the overheating that I didn't like. .71 has been much better on my phone. Yesterday I was off the charger for 14 hours and was still at 57% when I plugged it in.
    That's interesting as well. The .29 is perfect on my phone. I haven't charged my phone since reflashing mid Monday and I'm at 25%. I consider myself a moderate user (word docs, work email, light gaming, skype calls).

    I did figure out how I got the .71 update. I have a Lumia 635 that I used for work only previously. It seems I signed up for the insider program online with my personal email and my bs account for the 635. As soon as my phone was able to download the windows insider app (was getting app unavailable errors), I now have an update pending that I can't get out of. Looks like I'll have to reflash for the second time.

    I have been using the .71 build on a Lumia Icon (Verizon). I have no problems or issues, other than a minor formatting issue in Outlook Calendar where the little dots have disappeared that used to let you know if something was scheduled on a given day (probably a design issue and not a true bug). But then, I do not use very many apps nor do I use Cortana very much at all. However, I have not had any issues with screens freezing or random reboots, as others have reported.

    MS should stop trying to make windows experience on phone parallel to that of desktop. Keep testing, trying, and failing forever, man you guys abuse the fan's generosity too much.

    Please stop here, make the phone work. Finalize the product first, then continue the mobile insider program.

    Soooooo many random reboots with my 950 XL on 10586.71.

    Some several times an hour. Its getting silly. It will be the last insider build I do for this phone, it was arguably a risk doing it in the first place, but things weren't great on .29 either.

    I seriously hope the recent firmware update resolve the stability issues, or I'll have to consider returning it as a hardware issue.

    Use the Windows Phone recovery to reset your phone and then enroll in the fast ring and update. My AT&T 950 was stuck as well until I used the recovery tool to go back, currently on .71 with firmware 29031.

    I think 71 is OK, still get some random crashes in messaging and stuck on the loading screen but not often. Overall, I am unhappy with W10 on a L950.

    Just came back to say when I first got .71 I had a lot of issues and random reboots. Backed up everything and started back with a hard reset. Took longer to add my emails and install apps than it did to reset the phone. No major issues now. I was very convinced into wanting to roll back to 8.1 (if that's even possible on the 950) because it was so rough. Hard reset seems to have fixed 95% of the issues I had.

    I have .71 with none of the battery, boot, or searching issues described here. I have the unlocked version, not the att version though.

    Don't know about any of those issues any of you guys are experiencing as I'm using an unlocked refurbished at&t L920 on 10586.107 and I've never had any of those issues. What I do experience is whenever the phone has to restart for any reason e.g. build installs or manual restart it loses assigned ringtones to 1/2 apps and that's it. I've noticed a considerable battery non-drainage since the w10m build from .29 - 107 and with that I'm pleasantly surprised for that given the old hardware in use. What I want is another build or two before the definitive release to the general public and I'm good to go. When that happens I believe that it will be a very stable and very accepted OS and after that what we'll be getting will be the "features" that we look for with each new build we get.

    Stop crying and accept you're just as stupid as MS to go buy a phone just released (L950/XL) with an obviously unfinished OS that wasn't even released to past devices from the L920-L830 and you're bitchin about it, smh. You forced MS hand and that's what you got and now they're trying to fix that and give you what we WP users deserve. I'm honestly pleased with what I'm using currently and it's my daily driver and I'm not sorry one bit and EVERYTHING is turned on in the background and I can leave my phone overnight at 100% charge and get up in the morning and find it in the 90s and that's a L920.

    Bring back my half screen contact pic when calling or receiving, gestures - loved not having to touch my phone screen to answer a call just pick and place to my ear, more actionable notifications, for god's sake take out those blank circular tiles in the people hub, they ruin the beauty of my start screen.

    Each build is to improve what was in the last to create a more stable usable OS for public release, so far only a select group have had issues but the majority have had favorable experiences and look forward to more. MS continue to improve the OS and I look forward to the final release build and from there the features to be added to it and so and so forth.

    I agree on the battery drain part. on the .63 my battery performance was the best since the 10586.00.

    also the heating problem was 100% resolved on my lumia 950 XL when i was on the .63. after going to the .71, the phone started to heat up again and the battery drain is worse than ever.

    You're full of **** bro. Maybe if you got off Microsoft's jock you would not sound like a ****** but to each his own.

    I did a hard reset and it seemed to have fixed a lot. The only gripe I still have is batter drain. Still waiting for the firmware update though.

    I will say this .107 seems acceptable as I've had no issues other than my battery drain problem. I'm hoping once AT&T decides to release the firmware update it works well with this build.

    How did you guys get .71? I have a MS Store bought unlocked dual sim Lumia 950 and still on .29 even after checking for updates daily...

    Not sure if this will help any of you guys but think I found my issue with why my phone goes off all the time in my pocket and reboots. I narrowed it down to the light sensor. I shut of the feature for the accidental camera launch in pocket, turned off the auto brightness and glance. After that I haven't had any restarts or turning off by itself and the phone isn't getting warm like before.

    Now this being a core feature is really an issue but at least it's stable to use again. As soon as the light sensor used to see dark the phone would crash. Hope Microsoft releases a firmware update soon.

    U don't want .71, it's a disaster. Get Windows Insiders app, and choose a ring - currently at .107

    Word of advice.
    If you are doing a hard reset and restore from backup, you end up in the same spot.
    Do a hard reset and start from scratch. I know, you need to install all apps, but trust me it's worth it.
    I had problems with my Lumia 950. Was rebooting randomly, app crashes, and so on. Now it's working just fine.

    I have 2 Windows 10 phones, Nokia 520 and 950 XL, the 520 has better response to opening
    apps and when texting I can use suggested words. The 950 I often have to tap several times
    on a tile to open an app, and when texting, tapping several times on a suggested word will often
    not let me use the word, so I have to type every letter. I'm not seeing problems with reboots
    and apps crashing on the 950, when installing the phone, I used my BLU WIN HD LTE that
    runs 8.1 image. The 950 came with Windows 10, and then joined the insider program, so I
    could keep Microsoft updated with my experience with the phone.

    If you want the best possible experience with any build, always hard reset your phone after upgrading and NEVER restore from backup. You will have less chances of bugs and issues being ported to the newest build.
    Heheh... sort of. My advice to anyone with any 950 or 950XL is to, before you even turn it on, is to plug it into your PC and run Windows Recovery Phone Tool or whatever its called. That will flash the firmware and OS to latest release. Then when you turn it on, you can restore from a backup successfully, and no hard reset is needed.
