    I've installed the new OS, Windows 10 Mobile on my Lumia 930 and find out that there are few flaws/cons I found out... Quite sad for me as a long fan of Lumia devices.

    - Overheating when the phone is idle and opening an app
    - Camera is not able to record audio when recording a video. Temporary fix was pluggin an earpiece with a mouthpiece to record but it is mono.
    - Pictures are not in good quality

    These are some that I found out and quite disappointment so I've already rolled back to Windows 8.1 and I'm happy with using it. I will upgrade to Windows 10 Mobile if everything for Lumia 930 is smooth as how Windows 8.1 is running. Feel free to add in more opinions/flaws of the new OS when installing on Lumia 930.

    Thanks!

    Did you try a factory reset without restoring from a backup?

    You should get audio in video after factory reset without restore. Despite that, new microsoft camera app is:
    - slow to focus, even in bright light,
    - viewfinder is laggy,
    - quality in auto is bad,
    - camera doesn't meter exposure from a focus point, it always meters in center of image. You can have a scene where 1/3 of the screen is overexposed, bottom is underexposed, center is correctly exposed. If you move focus point to top or bottom exposure will still be set to value metered at the center of the frame.

    No Cortana or motion data in 'Extras' setting menu if you factory reset though. Tbh, I've been on every version of W10 through the developer channel as the 930 I have is a spare phone, so bugs didn't matter. Personally, i think the time it has taken to get to the stage the software is now is a joke. Have MS only got three people working on it?!

    Are you using carrier locked phone? Why didn't WDRT show up latest version of wp8.1.2?

    Nope. It shows I have the latest version and it shows I have an upgrade which is upgrade to Windows 10. That's all.

    I installed W10M on March 5th, and hard reset my 930 after installing. When the official W10M launched, I switched to production ring and left the insider ring. The 164 version is quite stable on my 930. I don't have the microphone problem, videos record audio fine. I am not sure about mono/stereo because, honestly I don't know how to test that, so ignorance is bliss here. Haven't compared camera sample though, so can't comment on that. The motion data app can be installed from here. It works fine on my 930. No 'Hey Cortana' though. Battery life has gone down, wish it could last longer :( Phone still heats up like anything. Other than that, I believe I am ok with it.

    Nice review, sarim_xyz... But I'm still waiting till Lumia 930 is still clear from problems... I still don't understand of why the Windows 10 Mobile for Lumia 930 got bugs before the official release but still make it public release. They should check it thoroughly before release.

    I had battery issues on my 930 after W10 the update,
    just did a hard reset, going to see how it works, and on a side note: the hard reset on windows 10 brought Lumia Camera back...
    edit: hard reseted form a 8.1 backup, an "update" on the app just disabled lumia camera app again, if you want to use lumia camera you should disable automatic updates.

    I just want to say something.

    On my L930 after so many insider builds installed one after another I noticed the phone should perform better than it does. I am now on insider latest build 164, so i couldn't upgrade to official W10M, as I am already up to date. So yesterday I did a comparison between my phone and my cousin's L930, which got W10M officially from 8.1 Denim. His phone has never been hard reset before, storage was full, many apps installed/uninstalled, so it was a bit laggy in 8.1. We tested the speed opening same apps at the same time, and his official W10 was about 5 seconds faster than mine on insider, same build. My device showed loading screen more often.

    So there is a performance difference after all. I guess they did something right with Official release :)

    Windows Camera is ridiculous. I bought this phone for 480$, damn it. Part of why I bought it was the awesome camera everyone envied me. Now I'm stuck with Windows Camera which takes just ridiculously bad photos, especially in low light, on a 20mpx shooter.

    Does anyone know a suitable replacement camera app from the store? :( Lumia Camera no longer works on Win 10.

    Just install Lumia Camera Classic.

    To do this, install SysAppPusher first :-)

    For some reason, I can't. Store says "this app is not compatible with this device."

    Lumia Camera Classic is accessible via SysApp Pusher. Install this, and then go to Nokia specific apps. Works for me :-)

    Hey Cortana and Motion won't show up until the updates have been installed from store after hard reset. If store looks as if it has crashed, chances are it hasnt as it needs to close to update itself. It can take 2 or 3 attempts before the updates show

    I suggest to do a restore to factory settings, without a restore from a backup.
    I also went from insider build to build, but now on 164, I left the insider program.
    The reset solved my camera mic problem, and some other small things I didn't even noticed before.

    Oh, sorry, I didn't read the second part of your reply.

    Unfortunately, this does not work for me as I have no Nokia apps in the app. Only Microsoft Mobile apps, from which I still can't download Lumia Camera Classic.

    Thanks for the help, though, cheers!

    Thanks for the tip QuadraFX! I have installed lumia camera classic via SysApp Pusher on my 930 running 10. Didn't think it was possible.

    It's under Microsoft Mobile, in the beta section of the list. Just look for Lumia Camera Classic.

    Someone should try recording video with this app on a 930 with microphone issues to check if it captures using all 4 of them. Mine are working currently so I can't check.

    I will do a hard reset actually soon, when i have enough time. But not restoring from backup is not an option for me :/ I know the phone will still work waaaay better :)
