    Chosen slow ring with insider app. But the phone shows an update to windows phone 8.1 is available. Is it the windows phone 8.1 update 2? Is there any way I can directly get windows 10 build?
    Help!
    Moat likely it is the update that fixes a reboot issue some people had. Tap on "details" and it should tell you.

    I had a bad impression with 166, and did a hard reset before and after installing 512.


    I'm very impressed with 512. It's very fast and battery friendly.


    Some apps, though, are not working properly. Pocket Casts won't open at all and Tapatalk is not turning to dark mode nor saving some preferences.

    No one can disagree with YOUR opinion, is that it?

    Worse than 10166? Zero improvements? ZERO?? Wow, way to pee on my corn flakes. Doesn't feel that way to me since I can do things in this build I could not do before like install apps, launch apps without have the wait bug, instantly launch my music app Groove and play music among quite a few other things. If this build for you is worse, roll on back to 8.1 and wait until fall for whatever phones Microsoft drops. I hope by then, something will be noticeable for you.
    But I'm also wise enough to know its the next step on the march to greatness. Ergo, its not done yet and there will be other builds.

    I have to agree that the progress from build to build is questionable.For inatance we have the quite hours flashing notification which was an issue in one of the earlier builds.Then it was fixed and now it is back again.Issues that were not a problem in earlier builds have suddenly become prblems also.Looks like the developers are struggling to find a balace.Whenever they fix something,it affects another area.I believe MS are aware of this though and this latest build is an effort to provide core functionality to testers.I am hopefull that the next build will be the best yet

    Not saying any of the issues mentioned above are because of this, but it could show how software is often developed using a branch system.

    So you get to a point in the new software, you leave a place holder and go on working, you leave another place holder, and so on and so on, then something goes wrong so you go back to an earlier place holder, but what one, the previous one before the fault or do you go back further because it turns out the seed for the fault is three builds back.

    So a scenario like this is perfectly feasible:

    As said I am not saying this is what happened in this case, but it is the sort of thing you expect to see in software development.

    And you all have to remember that is what is happening here, you are all playing about with software that is still a work in progress, it makes sense to flag up issues so that the developers can see what is happening, but to just moan and whinge is stupid as you all signed up for exactly this sort of stuff happening.

    So glad I don't have any of the issues mentioned in this thread asides from the 3 second lock screen. Its a TP by the way, other than that it sounds like it sucks to be you.

    I notice on my 640XL there's more likely I'm getting an unresponse screen if I forgot to close the camera app. It always worries me that the phone will be come back from sleep.... LOL

    I have the same problems as original poster as well as sometime the phone locks up and I have to soft reset multiple time for the screen to respond to touch. It's very random when it happens. Another huge problem besides the fact that sharing a photo rarely works the first time. Is that if I take a screen shot it doesn't show up in photos right away so I can't send it via messages if I need to immediately. Pretty stupid. I also have a 929. This build is much worse useability wise for us icon owners.

    I got the touch screen failed issue on a call again. That was widely reported in feedback on the last build.

    On my 830 everything seems to be smooth minus a few things:

    *The lock screen taking long to show up.
    *Outlook constantly floods me with the same notifications over and over
    *If i'm in an app like readit and there's a post with many gif files, the app will crash after I go through enough of them. Once that happens any future apps I open start crashing too. Though this is a rare scenario. Rebooting fixes it.
    *I had the camera issue a few times where it showed only on half my screen. It only ever happened when opening from locked screen.

    None of the other issues you guys mention have come up for me. The time for processing camera shots sounds like a bad one. Glad I don't have it.

    EDIT: For people having issues are you guys running on Denim firmware? I sometimes wonder if older firmware versions cause issues for some.
