    Hello,
    I updated my Lumia 520 from Windows Phone 8.1 to Windows 10. Everything was fine till it installed. After the install was complete, the clock on my lock screen appeared after 3-4 minutes and if i try to unlock my phone it doesn't show keys, it freezes and then it restarts. I tried to let the phone like 6-7 hours but that didn't work. I also tried Volume Down + Power keys combination, it restarted but again, nothing.
    P.S.: I can't acces my notifications (if i swap down nothing happens)

    Edit: Now i can acces action center, but if still can't acces the phone. When keys should appear, the phone freezes and restarts.

    It might work properly now, you never know - it's beta software.
    It's super easy to revert back to 8.1 with LSRT/WPRT tools.

    Personally I've tried build .10136, and decided not to try W10 again until August. I need stability and reliability, as 930 is my daily driver.

    It's your choice :-)

    Sorry for double post.
    For these guys who want Windows 10 on low end devices: it works just fine. I used it all day long, after a very long wait till it installed (i think ~ 1h), first time it was laggy, for 2-3 minutes but after that everything worked very good.
    I'm using Lumia 520, updated from Windows Phone 8.1 directly to WP 10, latest build.
