    I have tried the last 3 previews on my fab 1320. It takes some installing, you need ages. The gears spin for so long you get hypnotised! When successful, it does look good, with nice features added. That latest one (581??), also works well, BUT, on my 1320, the start screen locks / freezes, leaving the store, start screen locks. Lots of resuming, Cortana slow to read texts, she doesn't update, the circle doesn't grow / shrink. The size of the time on glance is so big Stevie Wonder could see it. Several restarts required when the start screen locks, although, you can use Bluetooth to text and call. Weird or what??

    It is getting there, but we need the firmware specific RTM for us.

    Some weeks ago, I begun to use Win10 at my L1320.

    The only issue is that sometimes freeze. No buttons work, even the power button. The only way is soft reset, but then sometimes it seem that I don't have MicroSD card, so I restart again, maybe twice.

    I had also tried 3 different builds.
    So, is for sure a software issue?

    By the way with 10586.122, I am very happy!!
    I use it enough hard and never freeze, it seem that is more battery friendly!

    Exactly how do you get Windows 10 on the 1320? Because the Windows Insider app doesn't cover the 1320 anymore.

    Download the Windows Insider from Store and select the update ring of your choice. I chose Insider Release Preview for being in safer side than Fast or Slow ring. Approx every 3-4 weeks, I'm getting updates for new build. I started from 10586.164 and now 10586.318 which got released last week. The only issue i face is random screen freeze once or twice in a day which can be easily recovered via soft reset. (volume up + power button). Rest the features are really awesome.

    Just checking here. Don't anyone bite my head off or get too worked up about it! But, there is an app called Update Central in the Microsoft store, and it says that the Redstone (Windows 10 update 2) will be released for the 1320 on 6/2/2016. So my question is, is there any truth to this?

    Update, for anyone still curious about Windows 10 for the 1320. It's amazing, not only did it fix alot of the little bugs, but it drastically improved my battery life as well. I know that the 1320 isn't supported by the insider app and you can't enroll in any of the rings. But, if you use the preview for developers app first to get the denim update, you can then trick the insider app into letting you unroll in the technical preview ring. 3 updates and about 4 hours of install time later, I'm rocking Windows 10 on my 1320. :D

    Side note. I have cricket wireless service, so the denim update was never made available to me. Also, it may look frozen while updating, but it's not, just give it time! ;)

    I don't know the specifics of what all you have going on with your phone when this happens. But I noticed on 8.1 this would happen to me from time to time when I switched from heavy apps or websites to the start screen, or when I had to many tabs running in the background at one time. Ever since then I've taken precautions against it. Try restricting all of your apps to not use battery power in the background, this will keep them from using too much of the cpu. Also, just be mindful of how many tabs you have going at one time. If you're running a really heavy app, try closing it with the app from now on, and if you're on a heavy website, exit the tab in the browser before you close the browser itself. If this doesn't relate to your problem or help, then I'm sorry. But I haven't actually run into this problem myself other than on 8.1. But hopefully this will help you out some.

    Thanks for the reply. It is completely random. One time I was on the Outlook app and the other time I was on facebook (both installed on my phone memory and not on the SD card). Maybe I had numerous apps running in the background? I don't really know..

    I will start restricting some apps and be aware of how many apps i'm running in the background in order to avoid to much load on the cpu and see if it helps. It never happened to me on 8.1 though :/

    No problem about the reply. The only reason I would think that's what it is, is because I've noticed with this build version the tabs won't close by simply exiting them sometimes, apps like Facebook and other social media apps did that to me on 8.1, along with a few other non social media ones. That's why I said to exit them from within the app, THEN close them. Guess I should have said close the tab, my bad. Anyway, the edge browser does the same thing as well. It opens each page in a new tab in the browser, so make sure you close the old one when you leave it. Otherwise you will have a ton of webpages open as well. Like I said before though, I haven't actually run into any real problems with this build myself, other than the tabs, and an embarrassing moment with my notifications not showing up.... Until I allowed messaging to run in the background. ๐Ÿ˜ด
    Anyway, I really do hope my advice helps you out. Otherwise, just keep at it, and hopefully you'll find a solution that works for you, and hopefully you won't have to roll back to 8.1.

    I wish that Microsoft had put a little more effort into making 10 available for phones like the 1320. It's not the phones fault that 10 didn't work right on some people's devices. It's painfully obvious that it's a software issue, otherwise it wouldn't be working so well for me. I think if they had just done a little investigating into these phones themselves instead of leaving it in the hands of the insiders, Microsoft would have been able to tweak these minor bugs out of the OS before their second update rollout, IF they even had one that is. Does anyone even know if they did or not? Cause I kept hearing that they would, and then I would hear that they wouldn't, so I don't know for sure. Anyway, sorry for ranting. But I just think that Microsoft could have done a better job, and it stinks that the 1320 will never see a Redstone update. ๐Ÿ˜’

    I am a Nokia user for now a good 10 years and the lack of support for the 1320 (my wife phone now) on windows 10 has been completely ridiculous.
    I also own the 640XL and to be honest the last update was not brilliant with the phone and I have had continuous small issues since.
    I am now seriously considering to move to Android.
    Microsoft is become to rigid, they are not listening the real requirement from their customer or potential customer, some issues with the last update, no here + map anymore and every time I need a new application is nearly never available on windows mobile and always available on Android or Apple.
    We will certainly replace the 1320 and the 640xl in few month time, I may be interested by the oneplus-3 for example.

    Hello I am Munish jassal. I am a software developer & using Lumia 1320 from last two years. I wanna know why Lumia 1320 has still not received update of wind10. I know there is reviews like performance isssues but I watched a video on youtube. A man was describing there is no any performance issues. Windows10 is smoothly working better on Lumia 1320. Please think about the people's who still wants to get windows10 update & still using lumia1310 mobiles

    Well, some people have actually had a problem with their system freezing up on them. I haven't had that problem myself though. But there is a problem with phone tabs as well as browser tabs not closing upon exiting them. I think it's probably the main reason for the screen freezing issue actually. We'll see when DeviDark comes back with his results. I may have just gotten lucky with my update. Also, other people reported a data loss as well, and many other problems. The thing is, these are all only problems with the software that many other people faced on alot of phones, and most of them probably would have been fixed by the last official update. The problem wasn't that it didn't work on these phones, it was that lazy developers at Microsoft left it in the hands of their insider customers to do their beta testing for them. The insiders that sent feedback, sent negative feedback because they had a bad experience with the original build version, so Microsoft didn't give the update to a group of select phones, and they were conveniently older models like the 1320. Which doesn't make alot of sense to me, because I didn't have any problems with it. But it is what it is, I guess. Anyway, I hope that answers your question. Even though the official reason from Microsoft is totally bogus. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Well, I have been a lot more careful with the amount of apps open in the background and tabs on Edge and I might say it's working. Sometimes it freezes (once in 2 days or something) if I forget to close apps and they start pilling up. It seems the problem, besides having 5 or more apps running, is like Steve said and we need to be aware of how many tabs is Edge using at the same time, it's a resource hog that one...

    Version 10586.456 has just been released and I'm downloading it now, let's see if it gets better with this new build. As of now the change-log has not yet been published my Microsoft so I don't know what's fixed.

    I had a feeling that's what it was. When I first got my 1320 I had 8.1 and I was like, 'Awesome! I have have this really cool high end phone now, this is the best phone I've ever had, it can do all this stuff at once.' So I would have SEVERAL apps going at one time. Took me a FEW weeks to figure out why my phone was crashing and freezing all the time, and then I still had the problem with select app tabs not closing after I exited them, lol. I think the only reason it has trouble running alot of app at once is because the processor is only a duel core. But, it wouldn't be a problem if the tabs would just close like they're supposed to. Maybe in this new build, huh? Please let me know how that new build version works for you too! I'm going to hold out until I know for sure how well it works, because this is actually my only phone.

    After one day to heavy use I might say this new version .456 is the better than .420. The transitions between apps is very smooth and it seems lag free. It still crashed while I was opening Facebook, messenger, 9 gag plus one or two more apps to see if it crashed. It did... But oh well, besides that... It's the best build I tested until now. This is my only phone too Steve. That's why the freezing problems stress me out. Thank God it only happens once in a while.

    I don't use the Facebook app anymore because I don't really see the point in it. I just pinned the mobile site to my start screen. I don't like going back and forth between apps to pm and post, it's just annoying to me. But, what do you mean, messenger crashes when you open it? Like the phone messages? Or Facebook messenger? Because I text people alot, so I don't know if I could handle SMS MMS not working right. If that's the case, I'll probably just stick with .420 for now.

    On another note. My brother liked the way 10 looked on my phone, so he decided to get the preview too, BIG mistake. Now his phone is more messed up than a hippie at a Grateful Dead concert, and The Grateful Dead isn't even around anymore, so you know that hippie has GOT to be messed up. He's not getting calls or text, complete random data loss. His background apps and notifications are on, but he's still not getting notifications when he DOES get texts or phone calls. His microphone only works on speakerphone. It crashes, freezes, and even starts random apps when he opens completely unrelated ones. Oh, and his outlook account won't sync up no matter what he does. I feel really bad for him. He ruined his phone because I was bragging about how awesome 10 was on my phone. The really messed up part though, is that even with all the problems he's having right now, the 1520 is STILL supported by the insider program, but NOT the 1320. That's just a load of bologna. ๐Ÿ˜’

    He should do a Hard Reset. If that doesn't work then he always has the Windows Recovery Tool to get back to Windows Phone 8.1.

    When I said crashed I meant freezed. Even with the .456 it's still freezing randomly. Right now I did not have any app open and after closing notification center it freeze again at the Start Screen. And I thought I knew how to prevent it... xD
