    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!

    That's up to you. I did it to see how it's improved over previous builds. I'm enjoying it so far. A few hang ups here and there... But overall much more stable compared to the build I installed a couple months ago..

    i just did my nokia icon on tuesday. there are various minor bugs. biggest issue i have had is that Start screen would load, just 'loading...' all the time. eventually it worked.... then hours later, back to loading. repeat. ,the loading makes phone mosty useless as you cant open apps, etx without Start. id avid doing this build on primary phone if you require being able to use it.

    Mine did this too. It's recommended you do a few restarts. I had a couple restarts then it worked fine.

    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.

    Running 10 on my Microsoft Lumia 735. Everything seems to be running great. Battery life is the same as 8.1 for me.

    Which phone do you have? It seems hit and miss. Some 1520s get it some don't. Same with the other models.

    I've just started to use it on my daily driver (Lumia 930). Apart from an initial hiccup on the initial install, fixed with a hard reset, it's actually going very well so far. The last time I installed an Insider biuld it lastest less than half a day on my phone before I jumped back to 8.1 This one (10166) is a keeper so far.

    I'd suggest that you check the Store app to see if it is up-to-date after you did the hard reset. 10166 is not a good build for running a hard reset after upgrading. It has some pretty bad bugs in it related to hard resets and the "Store" app not getting updated to the latest build (among others).

    I'm curious to know if the current slow ring build is more stable, or is the current fast ring build more stable? I know with the PC version, at a certain point the fast ring was better because it was so much closer to the final version as compared to the slow ring build. Have we reached that point with mobile?

    From what I guess,the fast ring comes out faster with more bugs. Slow ring just has a few fixes the fast didn't have when it came out. By the time slow ring hits fast ring has been fixed(kinda). So its a matter of if you wanna deal with bugs and be first, or wait till they get fixed then download. I think.. I'm not an expert

    It's subjective. If you won't ever hard reset Win10M and just stick to basic phone, text and email, Win10M build 10166 is "OK"... In my opinion. It's "stable" but not reliable enough or fleshed out enough for me to keep running on any phone.

    I finally updated my One M8 this week. After the initial upgrade things were not going well so I did a factory reset and started over. It's working much better now. Still a few issues, but nothing too annoying that would make me revert back. Overall I think it runs pretty well.

    After hard reset, do you now miss some functions? Like Glance control?

    1. I don't think HTC ever had glance
    2. 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

    HTC didn't have glance, but it did support Double Tap to Wake. That, and Dot View are not working in this build. I haven't noticed any issues with text other than I haven't been able to get custom contact text tones to work.

    Running fine on my Lumia 930!
    I only have problems with the share screen (when I scroll, the menu turns black) and sometimes the "choose a photo" screen crashes. Battery life was better on 8.1, but it still survives a day running 10 :)

    The battery life is worse than 8.1. I'm getting a few hang-ups. Some apps not loading even after uninstalling reinstalling. Its frustrating but overall is not bad. Be nice id I could change my text tone. And cortana acting up

    Big Papa, I upgraded to W10 on my Lumia 640 and everything works just fine , I do realize many others have not been so fortunate but honestly for me all i did was plug in my phone to the charger, select the FAST option on the preview build and then waited......About 10-15 minutes later my phone was ready. BEFORE I really did anything I manually restarted the phone and then proceeded to use it as normal.

    So far so good, the Lumia 640 is my daily driver, the ONLY thing that won't work and I noticed this today was that a friend texted me a contact to another friend and it was in a .x-vcard format (he sent it from his iPhone) and my Lumia could not read it, asked me if i wanted to look up an app for it on the Windows Store (there was non), so be aware of this.

    There is a work around to this of sorts, just import the contacts to google and you can view them there, unfortunately texting contact info is not yet supported so far as I found out today.

    After updating to 10166 twice and running as my daily driver for over a week, I decided to go back to 8.1 on my L520. Seems that data has stopped working and the phone is so slow. 8.1 seems so fast now. I'm getting tired of reloading apps after every update. I'll wait for the final release.
    I'm disappointed that L520 is not on the list of first phones to be updated. Probably won't see the upgrade until December. Good luck to all those still running W10.
