    Is this a definite problem with the latest release, or is it a only problem for some users?

    Just some users. Its elegant on my 920. One thing that saves me is I know not to try to use it just because I see the desktop. The device is usually warm to the touch and that I think means processing is going on. So I wait.

    Just started this on my old 920 last night. With 8.1 it crashes when I tried to open the camera and has ever since I spilt some beer on it at bw3s! Hopefully it will work enough to play with Windows 10!

    Just for caution's sake, after you do a restore to 8.1 (if necessary) / Phone reset/ install of WinXM, do not prompt for your files and settings to be downloaded from the servers. Wait on that. And if your phone is warm to the touch, IT AIN'T READY. Let it sit on the charger until it cools own. Then add apps.

    I did this also with my 920. But keep a error when trying to go to the build that came out a couple days ago.

    What build did you come from? 8.1 or WinXM something?

    Thanks for posting all this! I've not been happy with the past builds on my 1020 (even after using it as a daily driver for a month or so), so I'm taking a break right now (love the recovery tool). I'll probably jump on again after W10 ships for the desktop market. Keep it up! :)

    Anyone running the latest build on a 925? How is the battery usage, resuming and camera app working? Those issues forced me to go back to 8.1.2 from 10080 when I tried it.

    I'm not having that on my 920. I did once though but it was because I didn't wait for the phone to finish setting up internally. Sure I had the tiles available and some apps would run but the warm to the touch 920 suggested some processing was still going on and it wasn't ready for use. I jumped at it too early the first time and it never worked right.

    Agree re: Looks great. More sophisticated I think. My 930 is behaving itself nicely on this build. I am honestly enjoying it.
    I do believe though, that nobody should install it unless they are comfortable tweaking things, resetting phone and using the Recover Tool.
    Don't forget jtagging. Saw a few forum threads where people had "unbrickable" phones :X

    This is why I'm holding off on this TP as I use the Music Pass daily. I can stream but Tmob service around my area is horrible.
    As an FYI, Music pass does work since its working on mine but if you can't get it to work, I would wait too.

    Same here, old father's 920.

    Windows 10, for now, is a really bad experience. Almost evertything is worst than Windows Phone 8, which I really like the way it is. Microsoft Edge is a disaster, new search system is the worst thing in the world, while Windows Phone 8 have the perfect and unsuperable Bing System, everything have a really slow response, since taps until loading apps and much more.

    For now Windows 10 in Lumia 920 looks like any Android in any smartphone. Laggy and really poor responsive.

    Hope things change. Windows 10 mobile is a disaster in all possible ways.

    I wouldn't call windows 10 a disaster really,it just needs a lot more polishing before it's rtm which is exactly what Microsoft is doing with each build,apps are going to be laggy as the bugs with how the os handles apps aren't squashed yet.

    Well as off just under two hours ago, I installed the technical preview on my trusty L920. Instead of diving straight in, backed all files (accessible via the file explorer when plugged via usb), uninstalled a lot of applications and games. As I didn't want my phone turning into a sauna during the final stages.

    First glance after a few minutes use {let it cool down for 45 minutes as both screen and camera module were warm to the touch ); it is smoooth as butter, loving the lockscreen overlay, quickly checked for glance - tick - it's there, app list - all there. So far so good soo got prompted for a restart as an update was available and that's when my problems started:

    missing system apps entry in the app list such as store, store (beta), messaging, photos hub, settings (glance still works however).

    I can only currently access store beta via Wallet - add - all apps - choose store (beta).

    So figure I'm going to let it sit over night and have a thorough rinse through the o/s tomorrow.

    Woke up bright and early to go through this fresh o/s... didn't get very far and screenshots still did not work as all I got was just a black canvas. Over night nothing automagically occurred.. oh well.

    So bit the pill and did a hard reset via settings.

    When the TOS popped up I couldn't help but chuckle.

    wp_ss_20150630_0001.png

    Carrying on, I did not restore, chose customise here (a bit sneaky or daft to use grey text as some naturally presume grey text = disabled options)

    wp_ss_20150630_0003.png


    Unticked all except turn on Find my phone and use Mobile data (less chances of things going haywire right? )


    wp_ss_20150630_0002.png

    After it completely finished I was literally fidgeting anxiously as some have said their devices got bricked after doing so, lost glance etc etc.

    Hallelujah!

    What happened was a revelation lol, I didn't realise how many apps I was missing the first go round (after all this the first time running the preview personally on my phone). Everything was there from Edge to Settings, Film & Tv to Music etc

    {Screenshots are out of sync here, was too excited and forgot to take screenshots as I went along lol....}

    wp_ss_20150630_0017.pngwp_ss_20150630_0018.pngwp_ss_20150630_0019.pngwp_ss_20150630_0020.pngwp_ss_20150630_0021.pngwp_ss_20150630_0022.png


    {Missing screenshot 1}

    {Missing screenshot 2 for some bizzare reason the last two screenshots are not uploading}

    So the first thing I did was check If I had glance and yup, still have it.

    wp_ss_20150630_0010.pngwp_ss_20150630_0011.pngwp_ss_20150630_0013.png


    The second thing I checked, was whether or not static IP was enabled for Wi Fi, sadly nope.... I hope this is not omitted for the final release.

    wp_ss_20150630_0014.pngwp_ss_20150630_0015.pngwp_ss_20150630_0016-crop-.png

    Above is a crop, there is no edit toggle and the fields are not editable either via single tap or long press.

    Still going through the o/s and one last thing I want to mention is that I still have the window feedback app as I have noticed some were saying it was removed only to be reinstated in later builds. Plus the volume down + power key (1 second hold) still initiates the feedback app, takes a screen shot and embeds into the newly created entry.

    Edit:

    Here Maps, Here Drive, OneNote, Whatsapp where not pre-installed these were installed by myself.

    Last two screenshots won't upload.. maybe I've hit the attachment limit set per user??

    Time for a clean up I think.

    Also there is now a "not for resale" branding on the Windows Logo splash screen, I guess to prevent users from selling preview releases as the finished article.

    I upgrade my L920 to 10149 as well. Definitely more stable and less hot than the previous build I tried. In the previous build the Start page barely loaded and I had to revert back to 8.1 This build brought new life to my L920 and like it so far. The update camera is good, Cortana is still slow and I don't like the white background on top of the black. I like the transparent signon screen for my PIN. I like the Outlook app better on my iPhone. There is an option to show all email boxes and not one email account at a time. Battery life is very poor but I have mine on the charger for most of the day since it is my backup phone.

    I have the latest build on my L920, but I'm not too happy with it. I may do a reset to make the TP fresh, but I am also considering simply going back to 8.1.
