    Some confusion here...

    On lumia phones:

    Hard Reset: Camera + Power + Volume-Down
    Soft Reset: Volume-Down + Power

    Anyway...against my better judgement, currently waiting for the new build to install on my 830. I'll report back in a day or two.
    I always took Hard Reset to mean a wipe back to the base OS... the Soft Reset to basically be a reboot clearing out temp system files.

    The Hard Reset is the Camera+Power+(some sequence of volume up and down ,,, I forget which) - this wipes you back to the OS

    The Soft Reset (and I could be using the term incorrectly) was Camera+Power+Vol Down - this just reboots the phone and cleans it up a bit

    3 hours in and I have had no issues. Fixed the preview for my mailbox as it wouldn't utilize the live tile.

    Everything feels snappier, apps don't glitch nearly as much opening and I haven't experienced any freezes yet. Battery life still needs optimizing and I'm hoping that is going to be a big focus soon.

    Using an HTC One M8.
    I have two major concerns:
    1. Is there a yellow border around everything like there was in the last build?
    2. Does Dot View work?


    I assume no for both but would appreciate the feedback! Thanks!

    Hi over here...

    I've read the first three or four pages of the thread; it's a lot of time to read the whole thing, so I'm sorry if somebody has already asked this before. I'm on 10536 build, I've got a Lumia 1020 and... I don't see the upgrade on Settings. I mean it doesn't offer me to install it. Is it because I'm not connected via Wi-Fi? I remember that on previous builds, when connected via LTE you could see it available but you couldn't download it.

    I will try re-enroling the Fast Ring, but... It's strange. Anyone with the same issue?
    As said, you have to roll back to 8.1 denim to jump onto build 10549

    If you read the release notes, you need to revert back to 8.1 to get this build. Or wait till the next build.

    Soft reset is definitely ONLY Power + Volume down (hold until phone vibrates).

    I am having exactly the same problem but didn't find a solution yet. It's the only serious bug I found so far!
    Yeah it is a headache i just have to manually adding things via linking up with the computer for now. I thought i was the only one with the issue. I guess no one else tried to see if it worked for them or not.

    On this build i don't have the voice of Cortana. There is only a text without a voice. Do anyone have this one?

    So I'm getting more and more comfortable with this build. Doesn't heat up while charging anymore, and it's fast and useable enough. I'm keeping it. I'll see how it does when I get the voice packs for Cortana. In the meantime I can manage.

    EDIT: Does anyone have problems turning bluetooth on in certain situations?

    So I will change my question. To the 1020 owners: what's new about the battery drain issue?
    My 1020 is seeing about the same battery consumption as in 10536. Then again, I haven't tested much with extended high CPU (movie watching, games, etc).

    For every problem MSFT fixes, they create another, sometimes two others. This build isn't net better than the 1st preview of Windows 10 Mobile; quality control is non-existent.

    Consider this as a daily driver only if your other daily driver is a Ford Pinto.

    Using as a daily driver.
    Did not require hard reset.
    All in all very functional after checking and installing all the app updates ! <3

    Well...lol...I wasn't very clear either.

    Soft reset is "currently" as I described. Hard Reset is pretty much as you state in your quote...although still initiated by holding all 3, then a sequence of volume presses.

    The process appears to have evolved, and changed, somewhat over time. I did some searching ( I started to doubt myself) and that looks to be the case.

    Anyway...getting off topic a bit.

    This build is worlds better than the first build - I had it for at most 3 hours before I couldn't handle the mess of bugs it came along with. This latest build is really promising, and it's not even the final version yet. It's definitely capable of being a daily driver...

    I just discover that One-handed mode has something new . Now you can exit it by holding the windows key and not by touching the upper blank screen . Not sure if it is new but i really love it .

    This build is very nice, only have some bugs with the Messaging app, sometimes after I lock the screen with the app still running, when i go back and unlock the phone, the Messaging app crashes, and i tried to close by task view but the app isn't there and when i click on the Messaging button, but it doesn't open. I just press volume up and down three time at the same time, the phone makes that weird thing, with vibration and flashes, and everything gets ok.

    You're better off downgrading 8.1 and then upgrading directly to 10549. Best thing about this is you get lumia camera back this way. Go back to 8.1 and then up to 10549

    Havent read the whole thread, as it's pretty big. So sorry if this has been answered already.
    On the last build the notification only worked for me while my phone was unlocked, meaning while I was using it. So any notifications except phone calls wouldn't wake my phone. I thought that they would've fixed it by now. Or is it something I'm doing wrong ?
    Thanks

    disappointing really, i hope they don't mean it final

    On previous build my 3G was working fine on 3G only setting, now it connect to Edge (GSM) network most of the time, so I have switched to an other bit expensive (with strong 3G signal) data plan for now :-(

    Thanks a lot; I should give a chance to Saint Google before asking. In every blog (the official from Microsoft and the rest) existing, they put that in clear.

    So I will change my question. To the 1020 owners: what's new about the battery drain issue?
    I'm starting a fresh install from 8.1, no backup restore to see if that helps.

    the issues I noticed were slightly higher drain (1.7% per hour), music app not working, video app invisible and task viewer not working when you put the display to the lowest scale. Other issue was jittering photos app

    Yes, everytime that Microsoft fix some bug they will appear others. But you know what? This isn't a final build. Microsoft is adding new features every build, which causes new bugs to show up in older features. If you have problems with that, then it's clearly you aren't able to be a Windows Insider.
    One more thing, open the Windows insider app, and read everything wich is said there!

    I've noticed that the fonts look more jagged than the previous, maybe because of the DPI scaling thing? other than that its more reliable and stable, but still has the start screen loading but it was worse in the previous build. Lumia 630 here! I do have the movies & tv app tho

    Calendar Live Tile not working... calendar app crashing after a while, Microsoft edge is a lot worse IMO. Beside all that, great build, very stable in comparison to the last one.

    A reboot and a soft reset are different. The soft reset is the same as pulling out the battery. So more files are reset.
    I always do a soft reset after updating a lot of apps, just to get them to reload.
    This build seems to have a ton of app updates.

    Essentially the lack of full Cortana support in the Icon, when it was present in 8.1, is a major disappointment. That includes the Band having no Cortana functionality in 10, at least on the Icon. Microsoft's total unwillingness to comment on this makes me less than happy. Since I have no upgrade options ( Verizon ), the Icon is my phone and at a minimum should be supported in 10 as it was in 8.1.

    One more update on my 920 with 10549:

    I was able to get mobile hotspot working with my Dell Venue 8 Pro (also on Windows 10).

    On my tablet, I had to remove the WiFi hotspot from the list, since I had named it the same. Once I removed it on the tablet, I turned it on on the phone, and the tablet saw it as a new connection and was able to connect.
