    Yes, installed from 8.1, hard reset and I did not restore from backup.
    I've been using Here Drive+ and it works. It my daily driver.
    What I don't use skype or cortana or xbox.
    Do you think that a hard reset is necessary at all??

    I had build 149 on my 520 and it was horrible even after a hard reset, so I had read that others said to hard reset and do not restore from backup. I went that route when I installed 166 because I wanted a stable phone. You can try it without a had reset, see if its stable.

    I've been contemplating installing this on my 635. Decided not to mainly because of battery life, just in case. Hopefully in a couple more builds things will be much closer to final as big-windows people keep moving to work on mobile-windows. I predict end of August is probably when I'll switch to w10m.

    After a few days with it on my retired 1520 and multiple hard resets I can only advise to stay away from it on your primary device!
    Still problems with the start screen showing "loading" over and over, store crashes, some apps not install and so on.
    Success stories you find here is mostly due to people having a very limited usage scenario for their phone.
    People claming that it works well for them should add "works well for what I do with my phone".

    After a few weeks of use I can confidently say it's working pretty solid on my htc one.

    I would personally recommend installing this. I recently installed this in my Lumia 930 and it gets better everyday. I get some weird crashes when using photos app or lumia camera sometimes but it's tolerable. I've been taking awesome photos with it and some of my android and iphone friends accepted defeat on how my phone takes awesome photos even in low lighting conditions : ]

    Well, define very limited usage scenario. I do standard stuff like Office use, maps/ voice navigation, web browsing, using my set of regular apps, messaging including WhatsApp and so on.

    For this very special use case, I find it works well. Not as good as 8.1 of course due to a lot of bugs still there, but that's why we decide to be insiders. To test it under our use cases and report any bugs we encounter so the end product won't contain those anymore.

    So there is no reason to complain loudly about missing/broken features, not during insider preview. Just provide the feedback to Microsoft so they can work with it. If you don't want to, nobody forces you to use it.

    I installed it on my Lumia 620 a few days ago (I did a hard reset before AND after installing Windows 10) and I'm very satisfied with the experience.

    More stable, but photos still don't upload to onedrive automatically all the time, groove can't use music subscription to get songs.

    Yes, a hard reset makes it better. Over the weekend I went back to 8.1 because I needed the phone to be reliable.
    Then decided to try 10166 again without hard resetting. It was very clunky and very slow, the start screen acted like like it was still running 8.1.
    So, I did a backup, then hard reset, the restored backup. This seems to be working. The wallpaper on the home screen is shifted over, I was not seeing that before.

    Also, I found a fix for a bug I found, using custom ringtones.
    To use use custom ringtones, the mp3 file genre needs to be ringtone. After the hard reset this field is blank.
    I connected my phone to my PC and recopied my ringtones that had the ringtone genre to the ringtone directory in phone memory.
    Now custom ringtones work.

    Up to 2 weeks now on my 640. Few minor bugs (post call freezes, groove music pass), but nothing so significant it is deal breaking.
