    If you tell me what apps you want me to test I can install and check them for you.

    Facebook pages manager, myAT&T app. Is there a thread here on what apps work and don't on w10 mobile? I can live with a little buggy and even would not mind feeding back to ms but definitely need all my apps to work .

    Some will. Running this game called Red Herring on 8.1 runs like gangbusters. Run it on a phone running the latest build and you got a phone lock like nobodies business. I think most work fine but there are those that need it.

    Yes, I have accepted that Win10 officially may not come to 1520, I have moved on and decided on gettting Insider Preview. My original intent for this thread was to see what kind of bugs people have noted specifically for the 1520. I cant upgrade to the new hardware because I'm 1 year into a NEXT contract with AT&T with another 12 months to go. I only did this last year under the impression, assumption, even saw Joe Belfiore waving his 1520 on the WIn10 preview event, to convince me to take the plunge, AND upon the urging of the Nokia community. It seems it might have been the wrong call. However, I can get it now and it should be close to RTM. My only concern with insider preview is that its not optimized the firmware to handle Win10 in the best efficient manner (such as battery life which I have noticed a huge decrease) So i have to live with it, until I'm out of NEXT contract. Somewhat disenchanted by MS in general.

    Not the case on my HTC One M8 and it wasn't on the early list either. Pulled off the charger 8am. This is 9:11 PM

    Well, app called Pages Manager for Facebook works fine. Nothing comes up in the store called My ATT app.

    Haven't noticed any hit to battery life on my 1520. Might even be better than 8.1

    When MS fixed the photos app crashing bug - it seemed to help with the battery. Something made the phone run hot also which it now does not do. I'm getting much better battery life, also with just keeping wi-fi off and making sure my camera is not running in the background.

    Started having issues last week. Phone was randomly restarting about once a day. Yesterday it froze and the touch screen wasn't working at all. Had to use Lumia Recovery tool to get it back working. Flashed it back to 8.1 and then upgraded again to 10. Been working fine since. We'll see if it'll last.

    Still getting random restarts every once in a while. Also can't change the background picture on the start screen.

    What I don't get is;
    MS has said that all phones with "xx" specs (not going to list them, you know what they are) WILL be getting the w10m update. So, why is there even any question? I too am running the insider preview and I accept that with it comes bugs. But I run it to help iron them bugs out. That's why they have the program. I say, just be patient and wait. I have NO doubt that the 1520 WILL get the RTM of W10M. Just my .02 worth.

    For some reason I got an update on my 1520 on the fast ring yesterday (8th Sept), and things have got worse. A few apps (VLC and camera etc) when in landscape are only using half the screen, albeit rotated correctly. Additionally, the quiet hours quick action is now stuck in a flashing state (when it worked perfectly before).

    How do I check what build I am on... and what build is the latest? I can only find the Lumia Denim page.

    Phone runs hot at times, and now got a few hard reboots (prior to yesterdays update it was more or less stable)

    After a few weeks trying out windows 10 on my 1520 I'm happily back on 8.1. Forgot how much I liked it. No bugs and everything runs smoothly. Windows 10 just wasn't ready enough yet for a daily driver. It seemed like it was getting worse and not better. My first week with it was great, second week OK, third week I was having random restarts all the time and a few screen freezes. Some apps that worked at first stopped working.... Back on 8.1 for now. Will wait patiently now for the final build to upgrade. Good news is that there really wasn't anything super compelling about windows 10 mobile that I feel like I'm missing right now.

    That was my experience, too. I needed a phone which wouldn't freeze, or require a reboot to drop a call, or wake up the phone. My L1520 is back on 8.1. But honestly I am going to give the upcoming preview a chance, as using the recovery tool to go back was not painful last time.

    As a Lumia 1520 owner currently downloading 10536, I think many people confuse "Apps" with "OS" and attribute issues with Windows 10 to apps that have not been updated yet.

    You may be right Erik. Either way it was (is) buggy as hell. Not ready for a daily driver. It mostly worked except when it didn't which was getting more and more frequent for me somehow. I actually have more features and better stability back on 8.1 so besides the curiosity of what new there is no real reason to be on 10 right now.
