    My HTC M8 seems to be handling this build ok. My 1520, not so much though. I'll carry my HTC Windows phone for a while.

    I cannot even upgrade up to the latest WM10 build on my Lumia 640XL. It always says some update files failed so I ended up back on WP 8.1.

    Well. After doing an "upgrade" from WP8.1 to Wp10 to keep Lumia Moments I had trouble using the app occasionally anyway. It was hit or miss. So I did a clean install and naturally now I can't install Moments and a few other apps I like at all.

    The old builds of WP10 had the option for the new and old store to get old apps but they took that away.

    Also, does anyone know of a way to turn the facebook sound notifications off but leave on the banners etc?
    So far in the WP10 settings there is just one single toggle that turns off all notifications for an app like facebook.
    That sucks.

    Here's a way to disable sound notifications for Facebook (this is as per W10M DP Build 10512):
    All Settings > System>Notifications and actions. You should see Facebook listed here under, "Show notifications from these apps".
    Tap on 'Facebook". Set the Notification Sound to "None". That's it. Now you will still get the Facebook notifications without sound.

    I am using build 10166 on my lumia 730.It is my only phone ans so far it is good.I really love the new design,colours,start screen,animation etc.the new action center is good and the videos app(Film &TV) is amazing.It is listing all my videos and u can view in complete fullscreen also.
    don't use 10166... testing an obsolete beta means nothing.

    and 10512 is way better.

    I am using the latest Preview as my Daily Driver on a Lumia Icon. Just a few issues but none that have proven to be show stoppers. I'm loving it and can't wait for the Real deal that is coming soon!

    Have any of y'all had issues with Bluetooth? I see my Fitbit is paired but when I try to connect, it disconnects immediately. Trying to sync with the app is becoming a choir lol

    At first all I could do was turn it all off (no banner, sound, vibrate etc) but now I tried again and if I click right on the word FACEBOOK it opens the other window where I can choose to just disable the sound, etc.

    Cool.

    I want the banns etc but I don't want to HEAR the dang thing beep all night

    Interestingly enough one of phones boasted as the "Windows 10 Upgrade Eligibility Candidate", the Lumia 640, has some pretty show-stopping bugs on build 10512. I'm not sure if this is only me, but I did a hard reset after installing so it should be a pretty clean slate to test on.
    First Ill give a little details, the Lumia 640 is an AT&T Go-Phone model with a Cricket SIM and a 16GB SD card.
    Alright so let's cut to the chase:
    Lock-Screen has about 3 second delay to show information which is very disconcerting.
    Some days the battery life can last amazingly and still have battery left for a bit of morning and mid afternoon use the next day.
    Other times, the battery life can go in 8-9 hours or less.
    Using Camera from lockscreen is bugged out and opens up this sideways buggy camera view that is unusable.
    Uploading photos to apps like messenger or other third-party apps does not work.
    And here is truly the biggest bug I have found yet: The lock up.
    Basically when I leave my home network area and head out, causing the phone to switch over to LTE or the current available data, unlocking the phone is impossible as the phone is completely frozen. This can occur for about 10-15 minutes at a time and is completely random but ONLY happens when I'm not inside the boundaries of my home network. During these "lock-ups" I can see that the Data bars are sending out some signal.
    Other than that I use it as my daily driver and can live with the bugs until the next build is out.
    Overall experience score for Lumia 640? 6/10.

    Anyone got a problem with GPS and Maps?

    I can only get the initial location, but after than when I move, the GPS does not track my location. Refreshing the location does not work in Maps, and you can only close the app and start again, or wait 1-2 mins for it to refresh the location itself. Even then the location is not very accurate (varies from 100+ to hundreds of meters off). This has been happening for the past 3 builds and navigation is useless for me.

    I'm using a Lumia 1520 running build 10512.

    10166 maybe way better than 10512, but both builds have issues. Issues that are small for some people are showstoppers for others. This is test software, if you run that latest, you can report the bugs to Microsoft. I gave up on both as my daily driver, back to 8.1.

    Guys,any idea of when we can expect the next build? I think they are going to suspend insider program before OCT to release the mobile OS.So should we expect more stable builds frequently?

    Ok two things to answer here, first, i really don't think 10166 is better than 10512. i upgraded, and hard reset, my device occasionally reboots and sometimes it gets warm, but that's it.

    second, you are not helping anyone testing/running 10166, as Microsoft already ditched this for 10512, so it is better to give feedback on 10512, so that we can all get a better build after that.

    I honestly think that Microsoft feel that they made a slight mistake with offering Rings of test updates, as people are testing obsolete builds all the time, so maybe having a fast ring alone is IMO better than having fast and slow.

    Microsoft said lately that they are reconsidering how the insider program works.

    Had it installed for a few days , but found the biggest problem was with sd card not being seen. checked it on PC but even pc not able to fix.
    Reverted back to 8.1 and installed new SD card. I am a bit of a woose, and am dubious about trying again. Lumia 640 XL

    this worked for me. Set up the updates, and then switch to backup. do the backup, and go back to updates, and it may be good. It worked for me.

    I'm using a Lumia 1520 running build 10512.
    I am pretty much convinced the 1520 has a Windows Phone 10 problem. You can get the OS installed but man, it is one massive exercise in patience. It'll work great for a while then out of the blue, it'll crash. Or if its on the charger within eye shot, you'll watch it finish booting up. Its not the joyride my HTC One M8 Windows Phone is. I can't say MS is spending a lot of time on the 1520 and I'm preparing that I may need to move on.
