    So currently I'm getting bored with 8.1 and want to download the insider preview but have only one Lumia. I was wondering if anybody has it installed on their daily drivers without issues? Obviously I'm aware there will be hiccups and bugs but is there any that will render the phone useless? Thanks.

    I had it installed. Didn't make it useless except for a few lock UPS. Nothing a reset didn't fix. But had too many issue for me so I reverted. I do like the way ita going, but at this point I may just wait till its finished.

    I found it to work very well on a Lumia 640 with T-Mobile. It wasn't perfect, mostly problems with Outlook and the Store, but definitely good enough to use daily. Updates are too infrequent.

    Currently I switched back to a Nexus 6 as there is no wifi calling and no hot spot. Couldn't hold out for these to be added any longer. Both Android and Win10 work well for me, I just hate the Nexus 6.

    I've got it as my daily driver and the small bugs will drive you insane.

    Like camera roll not syncing automatically to onedrive, I've got to open the onedrive app and leave it for a few minutes and then it only syncs camera roll and not saved or screenshots.

    I'm at the annoying stage of wanting to roll back but I bet as soon as I do they'll roll out an update that solves it.

    Aside from degraded camera experience when compared to 8.1 in terms of speed and stability, the phone is usable for me.

    Note: You will definitely have to do a hard reset. Don't even have to try to say that it is not needed.

    On the latest build - moved from my test phone to my primary
    Pretty happy so far - one of the biggest adjustments is the single email client - not sure how much I am loving that.
    Some of the other features are very nice - organized settings, overall UI - some of the new universal apps....

    I installed it today on my Lumia 925. It works GREAT ! The older builds where unusable but this one (10512) can definitely be used as a daily driver :) But it's not perfect.

    In my opinion it's not, no alarms? Fail...

    Truth be told, If you can make it through the upgrade process (Make sure you do a current backup before installing), it's over all pretty stable. A few bugs here and there and there is some apps in the store that is missing from the 8.1' store. The only hit I have seen is in the battery, it's about 65-75% of what 8.1 was for me. There are a few loading screens here and there but, over all the best build so far.

    A perk, if you had older games or apps that were pulled off the market, If you go into your history, you can re-download these games/apps. I am using this chance to get all the achievements on older games that were killed off while I can...

    I used 10166 on a 535 dual sim, as a temporary daily driver during holidays. It was really OK, but every once in a while, it would reboot itself (or force me to reboot), and I had to check if notifications (SMS ones) were ok after each reboot.

    I consider that this hit&miss notifications, restarts, etc. are acceptable, as a daily driver, when on holidays, but back home, I'm still using my 1020 with WP8.1. It's not stable enough, or rather, reliable enough, to have me insert my SIM in the 535 running W10M. Not at this stage.

    Besides, the 1020 will never see any preview program (insider, preview for developers), etc. : it's my real daily driver and above all, I don't want to mess with my main camera ^_^

    I have it on my daily driver, satisfaction rate 7/10.

    i would say the main problem are not the bugs, but the need to hard reset every now and then.

    Well I have it installed and did a clean install afterwards. So far it seems pretty good minus a few gripes which aren't important. I noticed a few apps disappeared which is okay for me because I never used them really. Lumia selfie being one, did they discontinue that one? I also did notice the apps that were previously removed from the store is in my history. Not that they do much because they don't work

    I have been running it on my spare Nokia Icon for months and it seems really solid. Although it is just on Wi-Fi at home.

    I have used it a few times in my Nokia 1520 but had to roll back to 8.1 because of a few things I needed to work as my daily device.

    There are some cool windows 10 features like the speech to text option always available and the fact that if you set a reminder with Cortana on the windows 10 pc, it also goes into my Windows phone 10.

    So I'm here looking to see if a new build has been released since 10166.
    I'm game for trying it in the 1520 daily driver again.

    The nice thing about windows phone is it only takes 15 minutes to return to Win 8.1 using the recover tool.

    Lumia selfie I can live without but Lumia Moments is an app I wish they would have in the windows 10 store.

    I just peeked and my spare Nokia icon is actually on the newer build 10512. Maybe that is why it is so smooth these days.

    I carry it around the house and use it a lot and our works fairly flawless.

    Time to try that one in my 1520.

    I have been using the preview builds regularly, now on my 640xl. So far, I do not have no 'Major' problems with regards to my usage, that includes frequent messaging, fidgeting between apps for no good reason, gaming and camera (this app could really do with some working upon). I do not know about these rants about the alarms app. I need 5 alarms to wake me up, and they all play successively in intervals of ten minutes each.
    What is said about the photos app could be quite true. You still cannot directly jump to a thrid party app to edit while viewing the photo in the photos app, and the 'screenshots' section does not show up to attach photos from in the Line app.
    App crashes are now quite less. Lesser than in the previous builds where you could very well have had to kiss your third party apps goodbye if you wanted to use the preview.

    Overall, this build is quite stable for Me. I'd give it a 7/10. It is my daily driver.

    You can do it OP but be sure you understand that even this latest release, as nice as it is, will have quirks that could cause you to hold your phone under water until the lights go out. I don't know about everyone else but I had to leave my 1520 at home in the drawer to keep from finding out it doesn't bounce on concrete. Only one issue that kills it, random reboots.

    So I installed in on the Nokia 1520 again.
    This time I got that dreaded glitch where the lock screen doesn't recognize your password!

    I tried a soft reset or two and still could not get passed the lock screen.

    So I fired up the Windows Recovery Tool and it had an error on the first try (that has happened before).
    So the phone reboots when I unplug it and then the lock screen worked.

    Since this is an upgrade and not a clean install, I see that I have Lumia Moments app installed. :-)Mix Radio is right where I lkeft it too so that is good.

    I don't want to do a clean install unless I have to because apps like Lumia Moments are not available in the store nor in my history.

    Lumia Selfie is working too.

    I had to do a clean install after downloading 10 because I had probably every issue you can think of.

    The latest build is still not acceptable for a daily driver in my eyes. The store is still far too slow and I've noticed data switches off unless you reboot to toggle flight mode. Hopefully the next build?

    I'm using a 635 as my everyday phone and tried almost ever Win10 build but had too many problems until 10512. I did a clean install of 8.1 using the Windows Phone Recovery Tool, then installed Windows Insider which upgraded 8 then to 10.10512. After about a week my voice service acted up so I did a hard reset and haven't had and problems. This is the first build I've been able to sync my Gmail. Lets hope the next build does not go backwards.

    Been using build 10512 on my 640 since it was released.I upgraded and clean installed think the build is pretty solid.Its little things that annoy me.The alarm sometimes fails to go off. Weird things happen when I go to answer or end calls,phantom touches., default ringtones aren't very good.edge often reloads web pages randomly.Hopefully the next build will come with loads of fixes

    Good point you're making there TrueMetal. I'm wondering if I didn't cause my own reboot issue by not doing a clean install to this latest build. I went from 10166 to 10512. Ok, time to investigate. :) I miss my Windows phone.

    Well since doing a hard reset I've noticed one thing that semi bothers me but not a huge deal. When the screen is off and I hit the power key, it's very, very slow to turn on. It's almost like a slow transition that takes three seconds or more.
