    Couple things I've noticed since yesterday. Upvoted/submitted feedback:

    Keyboard: Wow. Work to do here. Swipe (Flow? Can't remember what MS calls it. lol) accuracy is almost non-existent. Suggestions are poor as well. If 8.1's keyboard was a perfect 10, this one is a 3.
    I can't say I have the same problem, Wordflow works great.

    Mine too. You can improve it quite a bit by going into privacy > speech and inking and pressing get to know me. This learns your typing habits. It's freaky how accurate it becomes.

    Hi Squall611. If your live email is the mail you use as Microsoft account, then it will automatically exist in Outlook when you set up the phone (hence the "account already exits"). But to see your mails you have to go to "settings", then "accounts", then choose your account on the list, then choose "settings for sync.", then scroll down and enable "mail". I hope this is helpful (maybe you already rolled back) - in general my experience with build 10549 is good on my old 920.

    Yup, recovery will get you back to 8.1. Install windows insider App and that will take you to this build. Maybe hard reset once 10594 installed. I didnt and i'm already regretting it. Get some 8.1 stuff left over, some app names messed. If you have a 1020 don't hard reset, i think you will loose camera app.

    Functional but ugly.

    On my 635 I am using for all of this (affectionately renamed "Lab Rat") I took it back to 8.1 and went through the Insider steps to get it up to the 10549 Build. And after doing so, I then factory reset the phone.

    Occasionally the start window cuts in 1/2 where the top is black and the bottom the upper half of the start screen. I can usually get it to restore though.

    The Store will not show my apps library! Attempt always crash the store. This might be part of a bigger issue though. I am keeping my 930 on 8.1 until the official release of WP10 and the "My Apps" function in settings is pretty atrocious.

    In most apps though, I am finding the fonts to be jagged and pixelated. EDIT - THERE IS A FIX FOR THIS LISTED IN ANOTHER WP CENTRAL ARTICLE - GO TO SETTINGS.SYSTEM.DISPLAY. YOU WILL SEE AN ADJUSTMENT THAT IS SLID ALL THE WAY TO THE RIGHT FOR TEXT SIZE. SLIDING LEFT (I WENT ALL THE WAY TO MINIMAL) COMPLETELY CORRECTS THIS..
    On the plus side, on the last build I had to ditch my trial run as the SMS/Messaging App disappeared! Scouring various posts indicated that this happened to some others and a hard reset would not bring the app back. Glad to see that with 10549 it finally returned.

    I am ok with all of this and am using the 635 as my daily driver this week with no hesitation - but would not recommend it for one's primary phone as it still has a long way to go..

    its better, but still ways to go to be daily phone.
    Seems M$ fixes something and breaks something else. Just got notification for another update, something to do with Insider Fast configuration, unfortunately phone gets stock at the Restart part to install it. Still lots of bugs, no Custom text for contacts-doesnt work still, some apps still having hard time updating, Cortana still refuses to work when Canada selected as region or language (was supposed to work now=doesnt) Still get loading here and there, better but still annoying. Live titles work for the most part, messaging and calendar sometimes don't, ghost titles on a few apps, or whne making live title doesn't go to main screen, just a ghost placeholder. Some odd names on apps, im guessing left over from 8.1 update. battery drain still worst than 8.1.

    That's not a bug, but a feature. Holding the Start button brings the window down, so it's easier to tap things on the top of the screen. Holding the Start button agains restores back to normal.

    No, I haven't gone to 10549 yet - should I have disabled Cortana in 10536 also? Seems disabling one of the main features of the phone is kind of missing out on the intended experience, no?
    Anyway, the incessant lock ups, endless Resume/Loading even for the Start screen, and frequent crashes, even while in a phone call more than convinced me to go back to 8.1.
    Sure, I'll miss the look of W10, and some of its features, but the speed and stability of 8.1 will very largely make up for it.
    Ahh I see. well I had the same problems with 10536. I'm on 10549 and haven't had any issues yet. I do have cortana disabled. This is something that is only an issue on 10549 from what I understand, so 10536 probably doesn't have the Cortana issue. Honestly, I am in love with 10549. Granted I've only been running it a few days but still no problems.

    I tried all day & into the night to get this build but I keep ending up with 10571 again. I reverted to 8.1, reset, re installed Insider & updated. I've given up because at least it has updated all my apps that previously had problems for the last few months & so far I'm having much less "resuming" A lot less actually.

    You need to change Region & Language to English UK. If you didn't already know.
    I have Australian language but Cortana won't work with that.

    Tried it for a couple days... I've been using WP10 as a daily driver and upgrading each time on my 1520... so.. downgraded to 8.1, installed this build.. Went well.. got everything set back up.... working fine.. I try to resize Cortana tile and poof... it disappears somehow.. LOL... I go to the apps to pin it to start.. nowhere to be found.. If I click the search magnify glass, she pops up.. but no main screen with cards of local stuff.. Oh well... I used it for a couple days.. yesterday I drive 2 hours to see my dad in Cocoa FL and I notice data isn't working... hmm... no emails, no FB... reset phone... nada.. check cellular data button and settings.. on... turn off and back on... Nope... Cell data just dropped out... Oh well, came home and last night put 8.1 back on... it's been a while but my, this is nice... I'll stay with 8.1 until 10 is sorted I think. At least everything works in 8.1

    When I first installed 10536, everything was smooth, but it gradually deteriorated to the point of having about a 1 in 3 chance of an app not starting, and a 1 in 2 chance of having a never ending "resume" no matter what action I tried, and a 1 in 10 chance of a reboot for no reason.
    Quite happy back on 8.1 for now, so snappy, no crash, no resume, joy!

    Hi, I think it is ready for daily driver, runs very smooth so far. apps opening quickly, store very responsive. Fully comparable with 8.1. Just dont hope for "slowing down symptom"

    I upgraded to build 10549 a few days ago, and skipped doing the hard reset thing. After an "Insider Fast configuration update" that showed up a few hours ago, the phone feels liquid buttery smooth. Loving it. Running on a Lumia 735. Will use this setup a my daily driver for the foreseeable future unless something major pops up.

    I've been having superb battery performance with 10549 on my 1520! I took the phone off the charger this morning and left for work at 8:45 am. Just got home around 11:15pm (yes, I worked a double shift!) and still have 49%! That's of course with light usage; couple phone calls, several texts, and some email, some web browsing, including the WC app.

    I'm quite happy with the battery performance! I haven't had to worry or even think about putting my phone on a charger at work... Not like the previous build at all - it wouldn't make it through half a shift...
