    I am using the new build in L920 on a daily drive and its working like a charm. have some patience its a technical preview, it will have issues.

    and just a small advice which i read somewhere, don't remember where,

    "while installing 10149 build plug it into a charger and forget about the phone till its up. i left it for 6 hours and next day morning all apps and settings were in place and working bit slow but once the background apps calm down its nicest of all builds till date. and yes turn of glance to save battery, it is consuming a lot battery.

    Usually, when reading posts like that from the OP my reaction is 'don't you read for comprehension?', but in this instance it's clear he has and that he is intolerant of bugs. Usually that's no bad thing, but when you're testing pre-release software, bugs are to be expected and I think many of his issues are down to one particular bug: that the software presents itself for use way too early.

    When updating the OS it really is necessary to leave the device alone for some time before touching it. I found this out when, after a particularly hard day at work, I fell asleep during the update process and awoke about three hours later to an updated 920 which has worked quite smoothly ever since and battery life has been reasonable. Neither is as good as WP8.1 mind, but they are usable.

    My advice to the OP is to roll back his 920 to 8.1 and install w10 on a secondary device. He can then use the performance of this device to gauge when to upgrade his 920. Remember that Daniel Rubino is running W10 on a Lumia 1520, a device with enough grunt to cover a lot of sins.

    Personally, I don't think it's necessary or useful to hard reset every time, because it gives Microsoft a false impression of how well thinks are going. Non-technical users are going to expect to restore their devices from back up after upgrading, so its best not to obviate this issue.

    I think some people need to be stop treating anecdotal evidence as a matter of fact, just because it runs poorly on your device it doesn't it run's poorly on everyone else's phones.

    Also after you installed the builds did you leave the phone alone at all?

    Furthermore was the phone running incredibly hot?

    If you had started to play around with the second after it installed successfully it will be laggy, with plenty of resuming screens, graphically glitches such as slow animations, slow cursor etc.

    In regards to the battery life, well if your using the phone constantly the battery drain I found is quite high compared to WP 8.1 - that may be what your experiencing and it does run quite warm.

    However the charge to charge time on my phone has increased by a fair margin and in regards to charge time from dead battery to 100%, the 920 generally takes roughly 2 hours to charge completely (with the Nokia supplied charger).

    So I imagine you have some thing running constantly in the background which a hard reset would probably fix or make it worse - could go either way.

    I looked into updating my 920 & read that the 920 is only upgradeable to 8.1. So I was scared to try it.

    I installed the latest build in lumia 920 and i must say it has really impressed me. May be my expectations were less however nice to use a stable insider build and even the update process went without a hazzle compared to my previous experiences.

    A 920 and 830 user here, both on .36. I would say, go for it. Absolutely.
    .. as per usual, do a clean installation and don't restore from previous backup. Then let your 920 update all the core apps, follow by the apps you want. Let it alone for a while.
    It will feel you have a new phone...

    Even though build is stable i am getting only 4 hour battery backup. It drains very quickly in my 920. Also there is performance lags in opening various apps. So i can't say the latest build is a daily driver though its very appropriate for a secondary device.

    I just help a friend update his 920 couple of days ago. Now the battery is stuck below 7%. No matter what I do, charge by cable, by wireless. Remove apps, stop background. Etc etc. The USB port is damaged, I can't connect it to a PC either.
    The logical choice is a hard reset, but I need to get battery juiced up in the first place, ... I'm stuck.
    2nd option is to change both the port and a new battery... and see how it goes... Fingers crossed
