    I think that settings migration is tuned for some models, but not for the others and the results can differ. The reset certainly helped my L1520.

    I'd say no. As mentioned, this build works better on certain phones. I have no problems using it on my 920 but my experience on my One (main) is awful with the start screen bug. I'd switch to my ATIV if I could.

    Question of 'Define stable enough for primary phone'. My answer, after looking through the bugs in just this thread, I would say 10166 NOT.

    I will not want to scratch my head over everything I have to do over a small bugs here and there to get things fixed, let alone hard resetting my phone now and then.

    After the trying the previous build and running into all sorts of problems,I said I would wait till the official release.Curiosity got the better of me though and last night I I installed build 10166 on my 640.Took ages to install,but I was very pleased with it when it did.glance setting was back in extras and everything was smooth.I did a hard reset this morning anyway to make Sure I had a clean install.I have definitely noticed a couple of bugs,some crashes,but overall now I'm very happy,build is fast,responsive,and most problems I've run into were fixed with soft reset.glance setting was gone again after hard reset.(there are workarounds mentioned on this from though).I now expect to keep with w10 right trough now.I would recommend jumping on if your willing to do a little work to get around some of the bugs.

    After installation, perform a hard reset, and it will become usable on a daily driver.

    Well, it bricked my phone. Don't think my texts were backed up, but not a major loss. Used the recovery to get it back to 8.1 and trying to get to 10 again. Maybe it won't suck this time.

    Just got the Lumia 735 on Verizon and I'm really tempted to try this build. The last build I had on the Lumia 822, which was two builds ago at least, bricked it and was practically unusable. I'm really reluctant after that experience. What I'm reading thus far seems to indicate I may be safe. Still a bit reluctant though.

    I'm impressed to the point of installing my apps and SIM card. Used and tested all day. Fast and even works with Band. Why does it dump Denim and revert to Cyan?
    Turning off and on a few times cleared up delay/stalls of app updating.

    Relax, it's a bug in the detection and reporting, no way did it alter your firmware.

    Personally, I wouldn't do it in my main device.
    I say that because I just installed it this weekend on my 930 and had to go back to 8.1 after a day. Obviously some nice new stuff, but Killer problems for me:
    No linked mailbox
    Store crashes on every app, so I couldn't install new stuff not update existing ones.
    Many first party apps broken (guess that's because I couldn't update them).
    No pivots makes navigation a horrible experience (even the OneDrive app, you need to constantly go and hit the hamburger for everything unlike in W8.1 where you have both pivots and the hamburger).
    People app is so horrible it hurts to look at any of your contacts, social apps integration is broken for anything but twitter, which happens to be the only one I didn't need in the people hub (Facebook and Linkedin are dead), and groups support is dismal.
    Language switcher in keyboard is broken.
    Silent hours not working for calendar appointments.
    Device hub is broken so cannot properly interact with my wireless charger.
    Motion data is broken so can't track my daily activity

    So, that's for my deal breakers, but otherwise the OS is usable and relatively bug free.

    Pepperdotnet: Thanks for that information about the firmware notice error. It didn't bother me in the least bit because 10166 is really good but I just wondered why it alerted the change and the 'about' doesn't even say what the firmware is. I did a search on Microsoft site and did not see the issue mentioned.

    I would say battery life on my 1520 is much better but 10166 feels much buggier than the last build.

    Biggest new feature is the battery settings app.

    My L920 keep freezing on start screen. I had to do a soft reset everytime. Also when I restart the phone startscreen takes too much time to load.

    It is well known issue and there is no need to soft reset it each time, there are some workarounds, just make a search, it is discussed numerous times already and there is no need to repeat everything once again...

    I'd say yes I use it on my one and only WP an old Lumia 920 (don't have the need for anything better yet, hell of a phone) and it's been working great.

    If you don't mind some minor hiccups like apps crashing sometimes and store not downloading some apps then do it, I would just advice that after you upgrade do a Hard Reset that seems to make it work better, just be sure to have a backup of your stuff.

    Initially I was very happy with this build on my L920 (After hard reset!) . No I am more or less stuck (even after soft reset) at a 'loading' start screen. Without it all is useless, but not willing yet do do another roll back to 8.1. Anybody having same issue (and having a solution) or should I just wait and see what happens (if so, how long)?

    Waited for half an hour: problem solved! (?)

    Are you using glance? Glance f's up the start screen on win 10 sometimes.

    Well I'm using it on my 735 and it is decent but will not be installing it on my 930, for now anyway. Would just be happy with update 2. Don't see the issue of them allowing those who want to get the update 2.

    Install 10166 on my 520, works good (3 days). Not seeing start screen problem. Did have problem removing and adding tiles. After removing the tile came back.
    Calling, texting, calendar, email, camera and battery life all work fine for me. Music player is working now, but took a long time to read from the SD card.
    I got an update of the Store App the other night. Seems to work better.
