    According to Gabe Aul on Blogging Windows, there have been quite a few things fixed on the upcoming W10M build.

    mobile hotspot functionality now works, Quiet Hours\Do Not Disturb has been fixed, pinch and zoom in the Maps app now works as expected and the delay in showing the date and time on the Lock screen has been improved
    Mobile Hotspot was the biggest for me, but Quiet Hours and pinch and zoom in maps are two biggies as well. Glad those are resolved going forward, as I'm sure most of you are as well.

    However, what remains that has not been mentioned? Glance Screen? Am I going to lose it if I jump in on the builds starting with the next release?

    What else is still missing/broken that hurts usage for a daily driver. Glance Screen is one for me. Does double-tap to wake work? Anything else?

    EDIT: Here's the list we are compiling of what has NOT been reported as being fixed in the next build, but needs fixing.
    1. Glance Screen
    2. Fix horizontal swiping in Edge

    Double tap is still working very well on my 920 :D If anything I would like to see Edge be a bit faster

    Edit: I would also like to see the implementation of horizontal swiping in the browser again :/ Really miss that

    Fixing things that were broken is hardly exciting...

    Seems to me that's all microsost is doing... remiving/breaking features... Couple builds later, bring back same features which we always had in 8.1..... ZOMG!WOW!

    How about some new features??

    Adding features always adds bugs. How about we fix what's already broken and missing before we start getting fancy. I need it to work reliably.

    I just noticed a bit ago that Gabe Aul has tweeted that the number of tiles on the start menu will no longer cause problems. That's good news.

    He also had stated Edge has been getting a lot of fixing and love, so perhaps it will seem fasterTM for you, ven.

    Can anyone tell me the missing features in the new camera for Windows 10? I've heard it doesn't have all the features of Lumia Camera 5. Has it ever been updated to cover what is needed yet?

    This is my point. They keeping breaking what is working and then fixing it..... How many things from WP8.1 needed fixing?

    To me, Windows 10 mobile just seems like a big visual upgrade :/

    Mobile hotspot is said to be fixed. Gabe Aul has addressed that specifically. I wasn't aware of uploads of photos to OneDrive not working. We'll add that to a list.

    Correct. It doesn't upload in the background. You have to keep the OneDrive app open and active for photos to upload. This essentially males photo upload a manual process.

    There is a similar issue with Groove Music. It can't download in the background. While this is inconvenient, I don't see it as a show stopper because I am not downloading music all of the time.

    The lack of auto upload for photos is a show stopper and needs to be addressed before they ship W10M.

    Agree! I will try (again) while keeping it open - hopefully this will be fixed in next build due out this week!

    The photo auto-upload to Onedrive does indeed work in the background, just not as timely as it once did before. I thought this wasn't working myself, but noticed they next day that all my latest pictures were there in my OneDrive camera roll. Just make sure that "auto-upload" option is set to "on" and let it do it's thing. I think now it waits for the Wifi connection to be ideal and when the system is idle. Before, you'd take a pic, and it'd auto-upload as soon as you had a WiFi connection. Now, it waits until conditions are "just right". No need to keep that OneDrive app open... Just be patient!

    It doesn't have the "Living Images" feature that Lumia Camera 5 has. Now that Apple is pushing their version of this, ("Live Photos") I think Microsoft should make sure this is part of their native "Camera" app and toot their horn a little, since we've had this for a while now. Let the masses know who really invented it!

    Before trying it again, try checking your Onedrive/pictures/camera roll folder. I'll be willing to bet said pics are already there by now.

    What I did: I deactivated upload, then turned off phone. Restarted phone and turned activation back on. Then restarted the phone again. Then I opened the OneDrive/Pictures/Camera roll folder. While keeping this folder open I hit the menu button down on the left (...) and chose 'Update' (several times). Slowly but surely the missing photoes appeared! :-)

    It's weird that you have this problem.. Which build are you one? I had the exact same problem in 166, but not with the latest.

    My principle concern is that Outlook Mail be brought to full functionality. I would have said more specifically, that individual inbox live tiles remain stable in the next build, as I was having an issue with one of my 4 inboxes was unstable. But then just this morning I saw an update to Mail and Calendar that seems to have corrected it. But what about a dark theme and what about "delete all" option?

    Well Mobile Hotspot and and the whole glance stuff (background) still not available or not works as expected. I miss to have the weather info on glance screen for example.
    But to be honest: don't expect too much from this build. I can just laugh about the store bug that mentioned to prevent them from release initially. They pushed out much more crappy builds before and we already used to the broken store. That, together with the poll, is nothing more than a "hello, we still there" statement. Also not a single word about release.
    I expect nothing more fixed than officially announced and (of course) some new & old things broken (again).

    I said Windows 10 mobile. Not windows 10.

    Trust me. I am very excited about Windows 10.

    I think you're missing the point that the code between Windows 10 (desktop) and Windows 10 (mobile) is shared quite extensively. Imagine the code that manages WiFi connections: instead of two completely separate codebases, they're now one, diverging only where they need to. From a developer's perspective, the APIs will all be the same. Windows 10 is Windows 10 mobile.

    How about the personalization bug, the one that pops up when you choose the tile option and then use a pic in the background just like we have in wp 8.1, but the image is then placed within the individual tile, is it fixed yet, and is glance screen fixed, does windows 10 now support gesture beta ?
