But is this also not "standard" in 8.1 and only with some "trick" you can move them to your SD card.
Working now on it. Reset is completed. Went into the about in settings and did the hard reset. Let the gears spin while I drove to a place in town with Wi-Fi, so that I could "re-download" my apps without using all my data. I also wanted to download some maps without using the data.
It's running, and I'm downloading a map for my state right now. Man... it came back smooth as butter. Runs faster than 8.1, less lag than 8.1. Loving it.
I didn't do a restore, I did a clean reset, so I'll have to go to the trouble of "resetting" everything up the way I like it. That's okay, I took notes on what needs to be done first. Not my first rodeo. It will give me something to do this weekend.
No more "resuming" screen. Before the reset, it just gives a blank "accent colored" screen for a few seconds while a screen loads. That is now gone as well. I did manage to see a "Loading..." screen, but it was very brief. Not near as bad as on 8.1. The accent colored screen and delay is gone.
I can't really tell if there are any updates to maps. There IS an update to the maps "settings", but not too sure about the app itself. The settings will no longer allow you to download the entire US map at once. You now have to choose one at a time. It is identical to the maps in W10TP for desktop.
So resetting the phone actually gets rid of the screen flashes? And hope the maps let you put them on the sd card for ya.
