    Want more news on this next build? While we already know it will be #10536, did you also know that it can be a direct upgrade from 8.1 without having to go through 10166?

    I'm looking forward to that. Now that I finally have a backup phone, I can go for it as soon as it hits.
    That's awesome news. Thanks for the tip. Having to go through 10166 was a pain , being able to go directly to new build will be a nice luxury!

    Yes, it is awesome news. I know there are quite a lot of people that have been waiting for mobile hotspot to be fixed in order to jump back into Win10 testing (myself included), and this just made it a whole lot simpler and easier to get back into it.

    Sure hope that build gets here yesterday. I mean soonTM.

    He has also tweeted today that a large number of tiles on the start screen will no longer be an issue. Yay!

    Ya and last time he tweeted that they fixed over 2000 issues. The outcome was a more buggy OS than the one before...

    My L1520 is on its last legs. It's just a hot brick. It does not turn on most of the times, it just sits there generating heat. If the build does not come today I am flashing WP8.1 back and I am done with it. They want to release W10M sometimes in October FFS. They should be ironing out the last bugs now.

    You know what else would be disappointing? Not being able to make phone calls or frequent reboots for example.

    Yes I agree,a build full of bugs would be more disappointing than not getting it sooner.I do think It will be today though

    Looks like there's going to be a build tomorrow.

    Gabe just asked people to vote for tomorrow or Tuesday. I can't see many people opting to wait.

    There's an issue with this build that store purchases cause the store to crash 28.8% of the time.

    We'll see how much trouble will the store give us now.

    I know this might come across as a rub in the nose of some, but I really don't mean it that way.
    I'm late to the preview world. I only loaded my first preview a couple of weeks ago. The current build on a Lumia 1520.
    I was so concerned with the possible trouble it might cause, that I went to Walmart and grabbed a 640 so I would have a 8.1 "daily driver".

    I rarely have touched the 640. Mostly just to compare 8.1 to 10.
    My 1520 has been absolutely fantastic to use with this preview.
    Solid too. No locking or freezing or crashing. At least nothing to even require a soft reset.

    Don't get me wrong, I see and experience many of the "bugs" of the preview, but nothing that causes me to use the 640 instead. I admit to only using the phone the same exact way I used it on 8.1.....
    I take pictures often. They upload to OneDrive properly. (although there is a noticeable delay)
    I open my corporate Exchange email continuously. I rather like the look and feel of it.
    I LOVE the new Office Apps that let me print to discovered printers on the network. Absolutely awesome feature. And the formatting the app does on Excel is very very nice for printing.
    Yea, I play a bit in FaceBook. No more or less than I did on 8.1
    I also LOVE how Edge renders the Gmail account. At first I was disappointed I couldn't configure the native email app for Gmail, but holy cow that Gmail is gorgeous and fast and elegant in Edge. I think I actually prefer it that way.

    I'll stop listing what I am finding awesome.....I have made my point.

    So I'm really just curious, what is the reason one L1520 would behave well, relatively, and another L1520 puke on it?
    I don't have any reason to doubt that all I read here amongst the various previewers is accurate and true. It just seems strange that in the world of 1's and 0's that the identical outcomes are so UN-identical.

    Still, I'm ready for the next build. I too am looking forward to non longer needing the backup-640 for hotspot! :)

    I hafta agree with snakebitten. I did the same thing myself: I bought an 830 on eBay to play with WM10... impatient, I installed it on my Lumia 930 before the 830 could arrive. Never even bothered with the 830 and sold it on eBay before the wife even knew it was in the house! I'm lovin' W10.

    I can see both sides of the Release or Not. While I'm really (really really) wanting to use the Hotspot and Quiet Hours again (and for a quick to update lock screen), I can wait a little bit for the Store to be fixed.

    I'm not sure that there's much in the way of new things to play with, mainly bugs and performance. It would be nice but to be annoyed by the zoom in the map app. I'm happy enough to wait and let the guys sort things out.

    I'm not happy with what happened today, and to be honest I think it wouldn't be a big problem to 'ship' the buggy build.
    First because - hey it's a preview, nobody cares if you have to reflash your phone or whatever.
    Second - this alerady happened, didn't it? Or was it just something I made up. o.O
    And I really don't think they need a whole month just to fix a few bugs.

    The bug discovered is a big one and I am sure most insiders will be upset that they weren't informed about it if they have pushed it.

    I suspect that if I was actually sitting in a room with guys that decide on these things, I would witness the following:

    These guys are the actual folks that know EVERYTHING there is to know
    These guys are well aware that WE are chomping on the bit for the next build
    These guys absolutely want nothing more than to please us to the best of their abilities.
    These guys wish they could do just that TODAY

    But alas, knowing what they know, they think the RIGHT thing to do is to keep working on it before releasing it to us.
    Honestly, I gotta believe they are smart enough to make this decision. :)

    Or put another way............
    I sit across the desk from our corporate software programmer. He is freaking crazy smart and good at what he does.
    (He currently is writing W10 universal code to extend our corporate (legacy) software to W10 mobile devices)
    I bet that room in Redmond is FULL of guys even better than him.

    I wasn't concerned about new things etc to play with. But, the current build has degraded a fair amount on my 830, so it's a new build soon or back to 8.1. I can survive a few more days. ;)

    And, yes, the bug was a big one and would have screwed everybody if they had released it.
