    The key for success in 10149 build is to clean install the OS without backing up anything. I have a 1520 and not major issues here. It's even better than 8.1

    I finally went for it* with 10149 and I really like it, and so does my Lumia 920. As earlier pointed out, W10M works MUCH better after you hard reset with W10 installed. I did this, and it works surprisingly smoothly given I'm using a 2 year old phone that's seen its best days. I don't see myself rolling back to W8.1 unless something major comes up. Yes, I experience bugs, but nothing that really breaks the deal. For example, I can't change my Start screen picture, Skype won't install no matter what (even after hard reset) and Quiet Hours keeps blinking, but apart from that I mainly see cosmetic bugs here and there. Eagerly waiting for the next build now (which also hopefully brings back Touch, so I can disable the darn tap-to-wake).

    *After reading the article telling you you might be able to finally use it as daily driver. I found it helpful and I intend to stick with using these previews from now on. Each to his own.

    Where do I start the build has nice things but worst than last build calls didn't work edge doesn't show the progress bar of pages loading, the message app was slow and didn't notify me or ring when I got sms, and when I did and opened the notification remained there until I swiped it away even though I read the message already that super annoying. Also mobile hotspot get an error saying I don't have data.. come I'm on unlimited. Apps would randomly close when you pressed delete key on keyboard figured that out through testing. It felt like being confined a fish tank and windows 8.1 was a unrestricted ocean. I love my windows 8.1 and 10 will be fine once they send out better builds.

    All I have to say to this is that Microsoft has put forth an incredible amount of effort in making sure people understand just how dangerous it is to install Insider builds on your phone.

    I mean, all you have to do is look at how difficult it is to get the damn thing on your phone to begin with. I'm on like... my 10th try? Phone's sitting in the freezer right now... Yeah... I said that...

    I Installed it on My Lumia 930. I had a really bad Experience with this build.
    The problems started with the update downloading, It took me almost 30 continuous hours to download the update. even though i have a decent internet connection and it never happened before with any update or any thing else i ever downloaded.

    Then after installing the update. The preparation time was too much (where the phones restores your contacts and other data in 20 steps)

    After that when every thing was done i locked my phone and kept it aside as it was too hot after all this processing. after some time i tried opening it but the lock won't open. The lock screen was stuck it was not sliding up and the notification bar was also not sliding down, So i had to restart the phone after which i opened the lock successfully.

    Now another wave of bugs started. There was no Peoples App, No contact lists. No camera application and noting for Music and Video(Film &TV). Suddenly the phone asked for a restart. after that restart my dialer was gone notification center was gone . I was Disappointed, I did a phone reset and earthing was back to normal I had every needed application like peoples and contacts Music and all.

    After that I thought tried downloading other applications Like Whatsapp, Games and Tools. But the store won't open (Store Beta) the phone restarted every time i tried opening the Store App. after 3 restarts it opened. and i downloaded all the apps successfully. Now everything was smooth (Almost). But i could not set a Lock-screen password (PIN). But that was not a major issue. The Xbox app was not working at any tim and still not working.

    The camera app was working just fine for Photos, But Video was not working it was stuck whenevr i tried recording video it was stuck at the initial time ( 00.00). and the phone locked after the given 1 minute.

    Another thing that happened to me was My quick action in notification center were flashing like it was Christmas. The were actually flashing in a Sync. and that sync was changing time to time . after 5 hours of flashing i restarted my phone(There was no major battery consumption).

    after 12 hours of installing and doing everything. The phone started downloading updates for internal applications(Extra + info, Device hub, Camera and other stuff) total 46 applications (Some were repeated).

    Another thing which does not have to do with functionality. I could not set Lock screen wallpaper, and the start Background was low resolution it was highly pixelated. i tried using a high quality image but it did not work even after resetting the phone it did not wok.

    This was my experience with build 10149. This was my first insider preview experience and i was impressed by windows 10. but i really need Video recording and Lock-screen password.

    Wow... Sorry to hear that. Works very well on 830, it's the first time I didn't need to hard reset my phone and I could keep my apps where they was.

    Smart move.

    it doesn't matter ho many coolnew featues it has. If you cant do the simple, day-to-day things is a waist of time and an unnecessary source of frustration.

    ​i was on 10080 for week and it wws torture We'll let the more patient, less demandng folks do the alpha (it is an alpha at this stage) testing.

    People still do not yet grasp the idea of the TP.

    You do not wait for a good build to jump on..... what help does that do? reviewing nearly finished product?

    You should jump in on the program, and try to give as much feedback as you can in order for us to reach a nearly finished product more quickly.

    While using this build I did actually send reviews to Mcsoft.

    I did provide feedback on what's needed to improve but will roll back to 8.1 , high battery drain is making 1520 die in few hours

    I have installed build 10149 and I am not rolling back. It is working very well on my 830, no substantial problems besides not being able to maintain a Bluetooth connection, which only affects me in not being able to pair with my car, but I can always use the auxiliary cable. Everything else works just fine for my daily use. Obviously there are a few bugs and glitches here and there but nothing serious.

    And I didn't do a clean install, no soft reset, no hard reset.

    Build is all good say best than the previous build but I have one problem whenever my phone is not connected to Wifi it automatically starts downloading data via mobile data even when data toggle is off, when i try to visit a page for example when wifi is off and mobile data toggle too page doesnt load. But I can see that arrow thing over my cellular signal which says that data is being used and I get charged too for using cellular data. This is ridiculous.

    I only experience Lag on my 1020 if I just upgraded and no reset. Hard reset fixes it for me. faster app loading. less resuming on some apps which isn't updated yet. haven't tried gaming yet.busy on work.

    Same here. Very little lag on my 1020. It still lags at times but not nearly as bad as it was.

    I personally am not getting these issues. My trick was to update everything in 8.1 (languages keyboards etc) AFTER a hard reset in 8.1 and don't install anything. Just go through the upgrade process. Let it settle for a few hours and then hard reset with a clean install. I'm not getting these issues. (except the quiet hours blinking) messages are sent and received internet data works everything...works...albeit a few quirks.
    Side note Cortana doesn't speak nor does she hear me but this was an issue since 8.1

    The biggest issue when installed it on my Lumia1520 was call history and call notification was not working at all.
    If I missed any call, there is nowhere I can see that who called up.
    Another setback was not having unified mailbox to see mails from different mail accounts, you have to open individual mail account to check emails.

    I'm sure I must be the old timer (over 60) but I have enjoyed fussing with WP 10. I bought a used Icon to try it out before taking it out on the road. Swapping a SIM chip is easier than rebuilding your "daily driver". Of course I had trouble, lots of trouble between 10080 and 10149, but during the course of solving the issue I learned more about the nuances of WP 10 which I believe will make me more proficient once it finally comes out (it's hard for my generation to keep up with you youngsters). I like what MSFT is trying to do here. They have gone back in time and have become a bit edgy and more engaging with their customers, so much better than their recent corporate days. I hope they keep this type of program. The user feedback has to be invaluable to them.

    My issue is that the Exchange setup doesn't work anymore if company policies are established by the exchange administrator. So my Hewlett Packard mail account stops working since release 10149. Another of my phones with release 10136 is still working. What a shame for Microsoft that one of the biggest IT-componies is not supportet.

    Should I create a thread called "Why this is called a preview". This is not the final OS, when you read the positive reviews, our feedback is based on progress from the previous build, new features and performance improvements in comparison to what it has been in previous W10Mobile previews. We're not saying its a great and that its good enough to be a final product OS. Personally, when I say it's good enough for everyday use, I say that in the sense that its stable enough to be BETA tested for every day use. as the previous builds weren't even stable enough to for testing to provide any real feedback.

    I'm running it on my Lumia 1020 and find it quite stable --- as someone already mentioned, it's best to hard reset before going to this build. I'll probably do it before going to each build from here on out.

    I rolled back to 8.1 because the last build was so bad my Lumia Icon was mostly unusable. Now I want to install the latest build and it won't take. I keep getting "Can't update phone ... It's probably a temporary problem. To try again, go to Settings > Phone update. (0x80070020)."

    So it looks like I'll need to do a complete wipe and try it again because the phone tries to install the update once a day and gives me the same error every time.

    I never have understood why people say to wait a few days, or hours until it "settles" down. It's a mini computer, would you wait for your PC to do this? No way. Either it works or it doesn't. Anyhow, I have rooted and rom'd many, many a phone, and this isn't even close to something I would run. Not much was working right at all. Rolled back in less than an hour it was so buggy, and that's coming from someone who has used Cyanogenmod, lmao.

    Man, good for you! I really do mean that. I love it when I hear stories like this, my parents are like 65 and well, if it doesn't have a remote, or a big F for Facebook, they don't know how to use it.

    slower than 8.1, drains battery, quick settings toggles randomly flashing, some app that worked in 8.1 do not work in 10 (like Metro File Manager, app installs but I can't see its icon in app list)
