    Depends upon your phone ...

    -Are you ready to Hard Reset BEFORE taking Win10 builds?
    -How stable is your phone NOW?
    -What problem apps do you have? Can you uninstall them?

    and the list goes on & on & on ...

    Downloading it NOW on my Lumia 635 (backup device) - looking for when I can try it on my Lumia 1520. I'll let you know!

    Yup..depends on how much are you ready to sacrifice. For me, it's not worth it. I could live with it, but why would I?
    Just keep it off your main device for multiple reasons. If you're really curious. Save your files and take one afternoon and try it out. You'll probably want to return back to the stable version.

    I think it's alot faster.
    But if you're concerned about the bugs, watch out for that new lock pin bug because disabling password will let anyone in your device. For security reasons you might wanna pass on this build.

    I made the jump on my main Lumia 822 from 8.1 to 10136 ( now 10149 ) as it's good enough for me.

    It's a hell of a lot faster the closest to 8.1 in terms of speed so far

    Be sure you are comfortable tweaking stuff, hard resetting and using the Recovery Tool before you take the plunge.

    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.

    Ditto.

    You want stable, stick with what you got.

    Windows 10 Mobile won't be stable until it's RTM. Bottom line.

    This is a valid question. If you're asking for stable enough for daily driver? No. If you're asking HOW stable it is, on scale 1-10 with current WP8.1 as 10, I'd say 7. Some app works fine and the phone doesn't encounter random reboot and battery drain that much, so yeah it's stable enough, basic feature still not working properly though. Your mileage may vary even on similar phone.

    Touch luck. It's Alpha Software. These things will all be fixed in the final version obviously

    Heck. We can een go as far as saying it'sPre-Apha.

    You all need to read and understand software release life cycle.

    Please provide your feedback to Microsoft and move on. After all, this is the point of the preview , is It not?

    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.

    I think I'm gonna take the plunge again, the last time I was with build 10057, then 10080 and then rolled back to 8.1.

    I have already made a full list of things to submit on Windows Feedback, so the reason I would like to update again to the latest build.

    10080 was awful. Much progress has been made. Don't forget that once the update has downloaded, you need to wait awhile to let the background processes do their thing before you start messing with it.

    Pinning multiple email accounts is huge improvement.

    A lot of things I'm liking in this build, especially since a few hours have passed and it has"settled" down.

    The build is a lot lot lot stable(L720).. Bugs which are often seen are-
    1.The pin bug.. It would be better if you use this build without pin..
    2. Action centre toggles blink and are not usable.. Restart to fix..
    3. Screenshots cant be sent through whatsapp.. Fix for that is move the screenshot pic to camera roll through file explorer app and then you can send it through whatsapp
