    I have a Lumia Icon and would love to upgrade to the Windows 10 Mobile Preview. Is it really worth it? I know I will miss the "Pivot" action in Apps but I guess that's something we will have to accept with change. Thank you for your help!

    Works good in my 640XL

    I have a Lumia 920 (it's a beauty if i may say) running The 10166 build, so far i have to say im very satisfied with it, it has some serious bugs on the Start screen, the Loading issue is a very big one, i've also detected some minor bugs on the settings page, specially on the Background Apps options, as soon as you tap on it the Settings app just crashes and returns to the Start Page.

    The Photos App have a great shape now, but it stills loads too slow. However this build is WAY more stable than the previous ones, and im really looking forward the next build.

    Hope this post helped you!

    your mileage will really vary! I've been running it on my 640 about two weeks now, and it is ok.. biggest issue i have is the phone will freeze while speaking on the phone, or when you go from speakerphone to not speaker. yes a quick volume down power button will turn the phone back on, it is frustrating. battery life isn't the best. i like it, hope to stay on it, but don't know.

    I put it on my 920 as well....and it is horrible for a daily driver, IMHO...slow...very slow...live tiles on the start screen are...just bad.... Seriously, don't do it on your 920 daily driver....again, IMHO

    I installed build 10166 on my main and only L920. It is fluid and stable, hence it works great for me. Of course, not everything is rosy: The phone heats moren than usual, battery life shortens, some apps crash occasionally, and in my case, the native video app's tile is empty. Overall, the experience is great, considering w10 is rough on the edges. However, be aware that the experience of each user may vary.

    I tried it day before yesterday on my Lumia 620. Then rolled back to 8.1 yesterday using Lumia Recovery Tool. Mostly it was fine. The issues I noticed were:

    1. Slight lagging: I guess the OS is still not optimized for 512MB RAM phones. Especially there was this VERY noticeable gap between action and response while creating folders on the start screen.
    2. Alarms and Clocks app: Alarm tone issue. All I was getting as options was a weak default tone (which will never be able to kick me out of bed) or my song list from the SD card. No inbuilt tone list to choose from (even though the list appears while selecting ringtone).
    3. Songs appearing twice in the new Groove Music app. And one of the two won't play.

    I am using 640 xl and most of the times the touch stops responding when I receive or make calls. Is it a known issue? If not what can be done?

    Its the known issue, soft reset solves my problem...MS not clearing this problem from the very first build.

    Soft reset does resolve the issue. But I can't be resetting my phone 30 times a day. Waiting for 10512 build, hopefully it'll get resolved.

    You can still control glance on Lumia phones, just not easily.

    Open the below link. It will launch the store page for glance. Initially it would say the app is no longer available, but if you wait, it will give you an option to "Open", tapping which will open up glance control

    From my experience, build 10512 is bringing a great deal of performance improvement over the previous 10166...

    But the real problem is, do you really need a "Desktop" OS running on your phone? Mind you if you are really into the UI elements and gesture from WP8/8.1, you will be really disappointed....

    I've not been able to fix this. I've tried reboots and hard resets. I've now unpinned EVERYTHING and I no longer get the problem. I'm gradually adding things back in to see if it is a particular live tile that is doing it.

    It happens if you pin a lot of tiles
