    I'm shocked that a version for the higher end phones hasn't been released. We're going on a month here. What gives?

    I don't think so that they are much more concerned about the high end phones like Nokia Lumia 1520,930, 1020,,, then why have high end phones when we can't the benefit.. Why Microsoft is not thinking about this?????(

    According to gabe aul they're doing continuous and final tests on all phones to find out which ones work and don't work with the upcoming build afterwards fixing any problems there are so maybe tomorrow will be the next build? (Hopefully) if not tomorrow then we have till the 12th which will be a month.

    Unless you plan on really taking an active part in the Insider Program, you're really not missing much with W10 for phones, at least with this first build. I have it on my 635, and while some of it is pretty good, most of it is fairly rough around the edges. I would not want this first build on my 1520, that's for sure. Having said all of that, I do hope that they release the next build very soon and include more models.

    Someone needs to Tweet Joe Belfiore, why hasn't he thought of this?! XD.

    I'd love to play with it on my 1020, which is a backup. I don't think I could designate my 1520 as a backup just to play with it on there, as bad as I want to. I'd miss that screen way too much.

    I agree. Unless your high-end device is a secondary one, I would caution against installing Win10 on it at all. I bought an 830 off ebay just to test Win10. There's a lot to like so far but it's also very far from finished, it's not even funny. There are so many features that aren't even available, yet alone polished. If you use your phone a lot, you're going to struggle day-to-day. I can't even view my photos by Album i.e. can't browse only Facebook albums for example or just the camera roll. I suspect that there's a good number of people that have tried Win10 on their primary device for the novelty and curiosity factor have rolled back. Don't forget to back everything up!

    Ah, be careful. On the current TP build, once you opt for the new translucent homescreen, you can't go back and select the original transparent tiled option, it doesn't exist yet. Just one of those little gotchas.

    Why LOL? it is not a "consumer" thing, it is a prebeta OS, and they can give the updates when they think that it is able to be installed on most phones.

    You are not paying anything for that software, if they want they can stop releasing builds and close the program.

    Then they should and release a half baked OS like Windows 8 and see MS fail yet again.

    I think the release for the 1520 should be relevant on microsofts agenda in the short run, because the 1520 has extraordinary screen dimensions and they are bound to run into rendering issues quickly as some of the obvious I would suspect. Just like now there are still text rendering issues with the 1520 in windows phone 8.1. In some apps texts are larger or smaller making text in apps unreable because they show too much with too small fonts or too big, so an email because a huge scrolling issue.

    Liking the new Windows 10 homescreen on my 635. It's more beautiful with the right background image.

    you can go back, you need to basically have another phone that is on 8.1, then you gotta sync them, if you set that up and change the wallpaper on the 8.1 phone, it will eventually carry over to the other device.

    I have it on a 635 as well and I haven't seen any updates which leads to me to believe they're still culling feedback. Like you, I wouldn't put this build on my 1520 either. It's funny how some people complain to high heaven about wanting a pre-Alpha on their top-tier phone and then burn their keyboards listing faults on these boards. Microsoft is doing us an unbelievable favor by releasing these previews to work the bugs out, I think we owe them a modicum of gratitude and extend some courtesy by being patient. Ugh, I need my Grape Nuts today.
