    Do windows phone 8.1 apps work in windows 10 mobile. I use apps like My Car app by KineApps and Countdown by Mario Donhauser. Would be nice to know if they still worked in windows 10 mobile. I'm especially curious about the My Car app, since I have all my car data in their. Took me a lot of work to add the data and keep it uptodate. Would be years of work gone up in smoke otherwise. Not looking forward to that.

    My Car is available in the store as a download for W10 mobile.

    I've still not settled in for evaluating the battery yet. Too much to play with and I'm currently installing all of the US for Maps onto the device (In 10 you can select SD card, but I have the internal space so I like it there for read speed)...

    Camera deploy, shoot and shoot again speed seems good. I snapped a couple pics walking the dog this AM.

    I think it may be a case by case basis. Not having used any of the ones you listed, I'm not in a position to evaluate the difference between running them on 8.1 and running them on 10.

    In the case of My Car, does it save your data between resets? Is there a way to back it up off the device? I simply don't know these things.

    Issues i have so far:
    1. The app "Network Services" got updated and is working fine but in the app list it is still listed as pending.
    2. Microsoft Weather app can't be uninstalled and lacks an icon in app list. There's just a blue square.
    3. Groove music also has no icon in the app list.

    I don't think update advisor will install unless you roll back to 8.1 or so it won't install on my 1520 running .164

    Yes, found a myriad of backup options. Feel better now. Thanks. Can you see if windows map navigation uses different languages for turn-by-turn navigation voice? Is Dutch (NL-NL ) supported?

    I don't think there is anything for you to get. If you are on 10586.164. What is your Firmware version? If it is 02540.00019.15236.45004 then there really is nothing else for you... Again, check your screen against what I show in post #43 and if all your numbers agree what could you possibly find in an update that you don't already have???

    Unlike HERE, Maps does not allow downloading Language packs inside the App. Instead, it seems to use your system language.



    I took some photos today and Camera App seemed to stick on "Saving..." several time when using Rich Capture with a complex lighting situation. I've Soft Reset, but only after I was done with the shoot. I'll keep an eye on this one.

    On my 1520 this has never been fixed and was introduced when I left 8.1 and it's not always on a Rich capture either. I've reported the bug numerous times on the camera app.

    Thank you for your help. From the "Extra Info" page it looks like my firmware ends in .45000, so maybe I need a firmware update. (I can't open the link you posted just now. I'll try later next week on my laptop. And if I need an update, I'll roll back to 8.1. Make sense?)

    I'm familiar with that behavior on my lumia 1520 with windows phone 8.1 too. It takes a longer time to process and save a rich capture image than when this setting is off. Ever since it was avaialable on my phone I have learned to live with it though. I can understand that taking three simulteneously different exposure shots and then stitching them in to one rich capture/hdr photo will remain a processor intensive processor. With that in mind I think the lumia 1520 is doing quite a good job. Hasn't bothered me really because not every shot lends itself to rich capture. So I'm very nitpicky with my rich capture shots and when I use it I take more time and accept it takes longer to process and save. It's similar to the behavior of longer exposure shot like night photography. Those shots on a dslr also take a longer time to process often on a 1:1 ratio with the exposure time.

    Thanks for all the feed back. I'm still on the fence about updating my 1520.3 and the wife's 930. Been burned too many times being an early adopter.

    Anything stand out that's missing from 8.1 that will drive me crazy? How's the facebook app?

    I keep checking but my 1520.3 is not getting W10M yet. My firmware is not the latest (it ends with 26000), but do I have to manually update it in order to trigger the OS update? I thought Phone Update can pull firmware updates as well.

    Certainly WDRT will give you the very latest in Firmware. Just plugging in will advise you about what is going to be flashed and you can decide from there. The difference between 45000 and 45004 could be hardware revision or something of that nature.

    Absolutely. There is an adjustment when using Rich Capture. You can't just bang away at the shutter. I'm pretty used to the pauses. What I saw yesterday was definitely a bug though. No controls on the screen and "Saving..." across the middle. It wouldn't resolve, even with patience. Only option was to close the App after waiting at least a minute didn't resolve.

    I'd try plugging into WDRT and seeing what it says is available.

    Remember this will wipe your data though. Might be worth a try and if it delivers your Firmware upgrade don't bother restoring or setting up. Go straight to Upgrade Advisor and check.

    Worst case, you know that your 1520 is primed for upgrade even if you are still on 8.1 and you can reset and restore your backup while you wait for 10 to find you.

    So far just the Camera bug I've mentioned above. Still too much fiddling for me to make a real use assessment of battery.

    I don't FaceTwit so I haven't the foggiest.

    Same here. I think it won't happen any time soon. I hope they don't ditch us and remove it from W10 selection.

    OK... I just took some shots of the sunset. Definitely Rich Capture is jamming up the CPU/RAM with that "Saving..." deal. Without Rich Capture it wasn't bad going shot to shot, but some lag was still evident.

    If I use Camera360 Sight on 16MP I can just bang away at the capture button no issues.

    I'll look for a solution.
