    Updated to 14926.1000

    proximity sensor issue still exist when using auto brightness, together with manual brightness seems failed to really change the level of screen brightness.

    Cotana still deaf

    I don't feel any change MSFT had done through the last few builds, not sure which direction they are heading nor what can we expect...
    I'm at 14393.189. Cortana still acting strange. Voice recognition works after fresh reboot but eventually breaks.

    You mean 14393.187... right? Nothing so far. Will report back here if I notice anything different.
    Yep that's what I meant. Am now on .189 but nothing new right now. No problems with Cortana and voice recognition here.

    Difficult to say, it depends on what kind of user you are. With 8.1 you have the main camera app working fine, and the haptic feedback as well, so full hardware compatibility. In Windows 10.0.10586(.585 for example) you gain a better graphics, a much wider software functionality and a deeper ecosystem integration, but you loose the two previous features. The stability is almost as good as in wp8.1, the main problem is a significant battery drain. This is completely fixed in the remarkable AU update (14393.67) which has also a boost in performance, as long as pleasant improvements in the notification center. The ativ-specific shortcomings, I experienced with this version, were APN and ringtone loss on every reboot (obviously IF you reboot it) and the broken auto-brightness. For me, the last 14393.189 update fixed the ringtone and made the brightness toggle more solid. You just should ensure you use the slider if you have to reduce the brightness. If you forget that and the screen goes black, remind that the touch panel still waits for your tap. It's not a big deal: only 2 manual adjustments a day for me. Moreover, this version seams to fix some occasional problems from the 3rd party camera apps I use, the correct saving of photos in particular.
    So what's my conclusion? I much prefer this last build, as I appreciate mostly the fluid ecosystem and the battery life. The camera360sight app is ultimately good, while I easily get used to the mentioned firmware bugs and their workarounds.

    Has somebody tested build 14393.321? It says something about *Improved support for networks by adding new entries to the Access Point Name (APN) database* I was wondering if this would fix the issue for the ATIV S.

    I have installed the update and APN still doesn't work, as the ringtone. I don't know if with an hard reset solve the problem.

    Just updated to 14946.1000 and I'm happy that cotana is hearing again

    This froum in the build-in edge browser looks a bit different in the layout, loading speed is good. The frame has been load first and properly yet still lag a while before you can really click into any section. I think MSFT took a little bit of advantage from how the webpage being shown to make people think it's quick and smooth while the further loading is still going behind the scene.

    Proximity sensor still keep on when you trying to use auto-brightness, default camera still won't focus and the item of change default camera still dead as well.

    I guess that's it, I won't expect much improve is going to happen to our beloved device and really that's no driving force to get a newer device neither.

    Hi, I've recently updated from .189 to .321 and I find Cortana a bit more reliable. Multi-tasking seems also less slow, I guess the RAM is not well exploited in our device, is it? Has anybody compared its performance to, say, a lumia 925? While the firmware bugs are still there, I've noticed an improvement about the start button and the unwanted one-hand-mode, which now rarely occurs!

    I really think build 10586.633 has great battery life and great performance. One of the best TH2 builds yet.

    If you are in a recent release, you can install a custom rom, search for spavlin in xda, and then update to 10586.633.

    Hey!

    Sorry it took so long.

    1. You need to leave the Insider Program in the app
    2. You need to install "Windows 10 Mobile Enterprise" package.
    3. Select "Defer" feature upgrade

    That's it.

    The Windows 10 Mobile Enterprise policy needs to be created by yourself. If you have a msdn account it's pretty easy. Just download the iso, install "windows image configuration designer", create a new package, select EditionUpgrade -> UpgradeEditionWithLicense -> select the xml -> export.

    Now just copy the package and the cert on your phone, it will automatically say "you sure you want to add this", you say yes. That's it. After waiting a while / restart you can "defer" updates in update & settings and continue to get TH2 Builds :)
