    It's pretty awesome on my 1520. Finally there's a build I can use on a daily basis.

    Still a few little niggles, but nothing really heart-breaking.

    This is a dream come true... This build is freaking awesome in my L920 (and this is my primary and only phone).
    First i havent done any hard reset after the new build. And before this build i was on 10136. I am a moderate user.


    I love:
    • the new animations. They are fast, modern and slick.
    • the startscreen in great. The tiles are crispy and live tiles are back for the msn apps and cortana. The all apps better. With new changes and a more minimal look. They have changed the jumplist and it's awesome :)
    • the store beta seems faster. I am not sure if they changed anything or this happens because the whole build is more stable.
    • the UI is improved in many native apps. Check out the changes in clock & alarm. There are some awesome changes in the world clock.
    • Photo app can support gif photos (at last)
    • Cortana also got some great new features and improvements. She can now send an email to your contacts!!!
    • No more reasuming!!!! I have only seen it few times and it lasted about 1-2 sec top.
    • microsoft edge is really the best brower for me. It fast, reliable and slick.
    • the ringer and notification center has also some minor changes. And at last the music has new buttons that fit the new style. (i dont know if i have said it correctly, what i mean is the center that appears when you hit the volume buttons)
    • I think battery is good.


    Things that need to be better:
    • action center and notifications. There are many good changes but there are still some small annoying bugs/glitches. Sometimes the toggles blink and arent responsive at all. (dont worry restart your phone).
    • sometimes apps crash, but this is normal for an alpha OS. But i have seen that games/ apps that previously didnt open (in 10136) now open, like the one more line game.
    • I saw in another post about a bug with pin. I havent faced this because i dont use a pin. My advice is to avoid using pin in this build unless the fix it.


    In general, my phone is stable and fast. I havent have an major bug, unexpected restart or crash. I can connect to wifi, send and recieve mails/sms or calls. The UI is more refined and it feels like a finished OS.
    This is my opinion and my personal experience about this build. I hope i was helpful. And my advice is you are afraid or simply can stand even the smallest bugs dont use the insider and the TPs. Also install it to a secondary phone if you can.

    (thanks you very much for the patience to read my tiny, tiny text)

    I have a problem with the SD card in 10149 on Lumia 535.

    Submitted to Gabe already, but it appears that apps installed on an SD card are very unreliable indeed.
    Almost all of my apps are installed on an SD card, but since updating from Windows Phone 8.1 (Update 1), the apps show "Unavailable" for the ones installed on an SD card, even though the SD card is inserted.
    I've tried a soft reset but to no avail.

    So if you don't mind bugs like this, then this build is rather stable for daily use in my opinion.

    I tried it but rolled back to 8.1. Looks nice but for me the phone app kept crashing, notifications weren't working and other problems.

    Build 10149 is already way smoother and stable than 10136 on my Lumia 520. However I did a hard reset before installing, so how much are you willing to sacrifice?

    I really don't undertand people and this question.

    How stable can alpha software be. If it was a stable software don't you think they would release it.

    if you cannot deal with bugs and crashes and freezes and things not working as they are supposed to do not install any TP software on your phone.

    This build, and the one after it will not be STABLE. it will just be better than the previous.
    When I stable I'm not asking is this bug free or almost bug free I'm more asking is it going to crash on me every 5 minutes, are there unexpected bugs that weren't mentioned, or is it going to destroy the phone if I forget to do something minor. Plus I also want to find out how it's fairing for other people who are using it or are on the same phone.

    I'd say a hard reset isn't needed if upgrading from 8.1. I'm not sure if that is the case if upgrading from a prior tp.

    I updated my 920 and 930 from 10136 without the need of a hard reset. But before the update I deleted every app which could deleted.
    Actual on my 920 store beta stopped working in 10136 but in 10149 it works again.

    And I can logon on the Windows Central app.

    How about basic things like receiving-sending text messages and calls? in the current build
    These things work fine :) Of course in 10136 you couldn't spend a lot of time in messaging apps, because it would crash, but I haven't been that busy with messaging so far, so I don't know. Calls work just fine for me

    I have a hard time telling I'm not in the 8.1 messaging app now. It works good.

    FYI. On my L520 spare phone the SDCard disappears once in a while and I can only get it back by soft reset, sometimes multiple times. Did you check whether the SDCard is showing up under Storage?

    Build 10149 is obviously the most stable yet, although a few bugs are persistent. I'd still suggest hard resetting before upgrading to remove migration issues, as well as not restoring a previous backup.

    Personally, I think now is a good time to try the builds if you haven't already. Seems like now that they're ramping down builds of Windows 10 for PCs due to RTM fast approaching, they're now starting to shift focus on development for W10 mobile. I expect the next couple of weeks to be interesting, with builds coming at a faster rate.

    On a Nokia Icon the MMS still doesn't send-not sure about receiving​. Everything else seems to work. On the initial install I didn't have a start screen so I had to hard reset it.
    Nope, Receiving does not work nor sending Picture messages. I had my wife send me pictures, one with just a picture and one with a picture and text, I got nothing. If she sent me a text, I got it..

    Picture messaging works great on my 1520 with the current build. This build has turned me once again. It's good, stable, and just feels good. I've been back and forth, but can now safely say that I'm all in with W10 across the board. I can get over the lil things I don't like, mostly just petty things like circles, lol!

    Good job Microsoft and Windows team! Can't wait to see how awesome the final build will be!

    Yea, no go on Picture messaging for me, your on a 1520 so I am assume your AT&T and others have said it works with AT&T, I am with Verzion and picture messaging does not work (I will get NOTHING when someone sends me a picture).

    Then I have notification issues, I have My Pebble watch using Pebble Notifications. It works but, it's spotty, Like today, I was out, No notifications at all opened up email to check and my watch got 47 messages at one time (about 2 min with my watch going off new message every second or 2). Over all it's been working but, spotty is a understatement.

    LOVE the email client, the feel of the OS, things are moved and settings I find it a little harder to find stuff but, not too bad.

    I could live with a bunch of the minor issues but, SMS/Picture message is a deal killer. I think I am going to roll back and wait for the next build.....so far I do like where it's going...

    Over all I like it
