    The build is getting downloaded on my phone right now should I keep it going or prevent the install?
    You will have to rollback to 8.1 to move on to the next W10M build from this one.

    Sorry guys, still trying to find out what's new in this build. It's difficult with no release notes, especially since these builds are more about bug fixes. It was updated from build 10512 on the Fast ring.

    Here's a few things I have noticed so far:

    • Confirmed mobile hotspot now works
    • No more delay when opening lock screen
    • No options yet for background slideshow
    • Quiet hours quick action toggle now works (no more blinking)
    • Battery life seems good, although can't yet say for certain
    • No issues overheating when upgrading and after upgrading (although never had these problems)
    • Default messaging app was removed - can use Skype messaging
    • More options when pinning a background on the start screen
    • New "zStorage" setting - crashes when clicked
    • Insider hub is back? (Can't remember if it was in previous build)
    • Can now pinch to zoom in Maps

    Do people tiles have history and notification badges? I've given up on WP 10 unless that functionality returns.

    I've always thought overheating was caused by there being a large number of installed apps. After an upgrade they all need to be updated.

    How about wifi randomly disconnecting? Any improvements in the camera app? (windows camera)

    I think the camera app will get its own update rather than from the build itself

    10536.1004 is the one MS is testing internally now so we may still get 10536 but just with bug fixes.

    OP I see you're running an HTC One M8. I'm running the current build (not 10536 obviously) and I wanted to get your opinion on what you though about the previous build on this phone. My experience has been pretty stellar. Almost solid.

    Can't comment on people tiles since I've never pinned contacts on the start screen. Also never had wifi randomly disconnect, perhaps might be a hardware issue if you're having it?

    The current W10 build (10512) ran great on my HTC One M8. The only problem I had was a few random reboots, the phone locking itself after hitting a navigation button at the bottom, and subpar battery life. The build before 10512 had great battery life, but for some reason 10512 had terrible battery life for me. Not sure if it was the build itself or just the combination of apps I had.

    History would be easy to tell. If you go into the people app, open up a contact and see if there is history there in the hub. In all previous version of WP you could see all calls, emails, texts, etc. by date for just that one person. It was/is a fantastic feature.

    Microsoft is probably working on an app for android to add this functionality......

    Nope, no history in contact view.

    If Microsoft was going to add this back in, I'm assuming it'd be an app update.

    My battery has been outstanding in 10512. I did get a restart a couple times but no show stoppers. Just checking. Hey, do this, download this game Red Herring. A really fun game and its free. Let me know if it works.

    Great, I hope this does not kill the Pebble Notifications app (pulls texts directly from Messaging). If so, it will be a deal breaker and I will have no choice but, to roll back to 8.1

    Not going to dump a $150+ watch that I use every day(that I need) to take a new W10M build...

    I don't quite get it. So much functionality was stripped from the OS and what remains is so buggy. Not sure MS is going with this. This late in the game we can't keep saying it's because it's beta/preview.

    I had to get a replacement phone and 8.1 feels like such a step up. :(

    The eternal problem with Microsoft and their mobile platform: so busy playing catchup with themselves they'll never catch up to the competition....

    There's an article on the main site that MS is going in two directions with their phones. Premium phones for the fans and business phones. In other words they do not think they have a chance in consumer segment. It makes their strategy to sell their services instead of their mobile phones clearer and more understandable now.

    I'm not sure I agree. I think that being outside this development process, all we have is what we can see in the software we download but none of us actually know whats on the their storyboard for this phone. We are pigs in a lot of their testing and none will be made clear until dust settles. And even then their will likely be questions.

    Here's a few issues I've found with this build so far:

    • Changing accent colors is buggy. This makes a situation where the accent color of the phone is different than some apps. Example pic below.
    • Some setting in Cortana's notebook can't be opened. Trying to access any of these settings actually causes a soft freeze of the phone. Letting it sit for a few seconds, they will eventually open, but Cortana is unusable until then.


    Also, the only improvement I see to Edge is a new option to enable EME:

    Gabe confirmed that this build did slip out the door to a few insiders before it got shut down.

    Yeah it slipped out. By purpose so they could try to get some feedback about the build.

    Damn, you got Bluetooth to connect to to an Onkyo? That's quite a miracle.

    I've struggled getting multiple windows phones and OSes connected to various BT receivers. Win 10 has been worse than Win 8.1.

    Build 10512 worked fine connecting to the Onkyo as well. Can't comment on whether or not WP 8.1 connected to it since I got this Onkyo a few weeks ago.

    Same here. I'm running 10512 and it connects to my car stereo, bluetooth wireless earphones, my fitbit and even my now decommissioned 6 month old 200 dollar plus tax, Microsoft (Never again in life) Band.
