    After a not so good experience with one of the earlier builds, I had decided to be cautious and sit on the fence until a later build came along, especially as I don't have access to a test device, and would be using it on my daily driver. So with the announcement of 10166, I thought it seemed like the appropriate time to give it another go. My experience has certainly been much better than before, and I'm comfortable continuing to use it for now. The upgrade experience was definitely a lot smoother, and the overall polish looks a lot nicer. Despite a few bugs and performance issues being experienced here and there which I have reported all seems well, and I'm excited to continue to see it progress. For those interested, some of the bugs I've come across are.... Lag when opening folders on start screen, unable to change the start screen background image, problems with typing in OneNote, no SMS drafts (lose an unsent message after switching apps), no lock screen support for MSN weather app. They would be my main gripes, but nothing show stopping at this stage

    10166 is working really well on my Lumia 1320 so far.

    I was on 10136 (where the Store failed to download a bunch of apps which then completely took up my Phone storage) so I reverted to 8.1, updated to 10166, then restored a backup.

    Good points:
    • App restoration after a backup is fixed - all my apps reinstalled successfully
    • Everything is much smoother and faster, it's definitely staying on my daily driver.
    • UIs are making progress - there's still some weirdness in the difference between old/new app bars, but it's looking promising
    • Font scaling for 6" screens is fantastic. Things no longer feel unnecessarily large, unless it's a particularly old app.

    Bad points/bugs:
    • What the hell is up with the People tile?! Little circles, moving around in the square tile? It's disgusting and does not fit at all.
    • In "full screen picture" mode for the Start screen, tiles retain the accent colour, which can look quite bad (my tiles are red). It'd be nice to be able to set the tiles to a customizable shade of white/black so that they can look nice on any background, especially combined with transparency.
    • Start screen sometimes crashes me back to the latest app I was running, as others have mentioned.
    • The landscape keyboard doesn't load for me - I just get a black section. I've noticed this in both apps and games.
    • The Store no longer asks "This app can't be installed on an SD card. Install on Phone instead?" - rather, it tells you to go to Settings and change the global setting, install the app, then change the global setting back. Error code 0x80073D01.
    • Text message notifications have been quite sporadic, and have not updated the live tile as of yet. I've toggled them off & on in Settings so we'll see what happens.
    • The Groove Music app still feels quite unfinished. It initially started detecting music off my SD card, so I switched to File Explorer and deleted all my songs. Went back to Groove, and it still thinks the songs are on the phone, after 2 days. There also doesn't seem to be a way to 'select all'

    Minor things I've noticed (including smaller bugs):
    • Swiping up on the lock screen, with PIN enabled, will toggle between the PIN screen and a darkened lock screen.
    • Can't remove the 'All Apps' shortcut at the bottom of the start screen. Being able to do so would be nice.
    • Calendar live till is still basic, like it was in 8.1. It'd be nice if it could show more than one appointment.
    • Shutting down the phone will quickly remind you about your next appointment.
    • Others have said they can't change Glance settings - everything looks fine for me so far.
    • It's interesting that the 'Other' section in Settings has a very stripped down UI compared to the rest of the available pages. In portrait, there is no search box, in landscape, it has search, but the left sidebar shows up (and is blank). The list is a collection of text links rather than list buttons like other Settings pages.
    • Looks like spacing between notifications in the notifications area is larger than before.


    Overall, this build is looking promising. I've had no apps actually crash on me, everything is more stable, and future builds should get interesting.

    WiFi doesn't work in the 1520 and you can't post tweets on twitter. The app will crash.

    I cannot change the pic background for the start page.. Shows the one migrated from 8.1
    Hmmm, kind strange, try set it to none, restart and try again, if nothing else help I'm afraid you'll need to format it, fresh start usually fix most of the issues...

    Can anyone tell me if Microsoft Edge has become a store app yet to be updated independent of OS? In this build?
    No.. But it is significantly improved in this build and I am not saying it just like that, faster, stable, they have even added the loading progress bar, it looks quite promising now, thumb up...

    Cannot share mobile using mobile hotspot, and still no usb tethering nl630 dual sim. One sim is for mobile broadband only.
    Well known issue since first build...

    No email notifications, not in the notifications and actions.
    As a matter of fact, some of my mails appears in notification center from time to time but generally speaking you are right, it is well known bug, e-mail still doesn't work properly...

    The store needs panel beating, more clicks to get to what used to be My Apps.
    Very agree with U, not a huge fan although it has couple or more than welcome improvements, I guess we all have to give it a chance, it takes some time to get acclimated to :D

    It broke my phone... HTC M1 8m "your pc/device needs to be repaired" boot config data missing or contains errors. Awesome.:(

    Can't hard reset, can't get to settings... phone just keeps restarting and going to BSoD. Not cool. Wife is one step away from going back to Android and this will probably push her the rest of the way over. Have to get this fixed asap.

    Microsoft has recently updated the Windows Phone Recovery Tool with support for the HTC One (M8) so just get it and fix it, and don't forget to keep us informed however ;)

    Using alarms, vibration cannot be chosen anymore.
    I am used to it having it under my pillow so that my wife doesn't wake up.
    Any clue?
