    Lumia 920 here. Feels definitely zippier. I was having doubts with this build but after all the work to install it, it IS an improvement over the previous one.

    Can't say if the Cortana thing is too bad, but I guess I can manage for a couple of weeks without her. If not, I'll just turn her off and on. It's a shame though. I just hope it only works as bad as the previous build and doesn't maeke the phone comparatively worse.

    Scaling is a MAJOR improvement overall for the OS, it really adds to useability for people who can't see well, as well as options for whoever has a smaller/bigger screen.

    Bugs:
    - I have a hard time changing the default actions assigned to the 4 buttons. Especially with the one that shows rotation lock. When I touch it to change it, instead of the pull down menu, it lingers for a bit, then crashes to start screen. In my pre-restore install I managed to change it by choosing another one of the buttons which had another function to rotation lock, so they'd swap. Can't do that now, it's weird but not overly annoying.

    Okay, hard reset on my 920 and things are running smoother.

    App status:
    I have a bunch of larger apps I'm waiting to re-install/update since I don't have WiFi here, and my data is mostly up for the month.
    6tag and Fitbit are working. The Podcast app pulled back all my podcast subscriptions.Texting/Messaging seems to be working again.

    Likes:
    Camera app is slick, love click and hold to take video. Surprised that when offered to pull photos from the video I had to get a plugin, but that's better than not having the option. PS, I was shooting video while streaming Pandora through BlueTooth headphones, it was pretty smooth.

    Glitchy:
    Task switcher stutters as you slide through running apps.
    Still getting some times where letters on the keyboard disappear or are shaded different. Swiping down notifications stutters, and sometimes the icons don't all display.

    Bug:
    I've been trying to change what is in the third quick setting slot. Right now it's Rotation lock, and when I go into System - Notifications & Actions and click that slot, I end up on the Start screen.

    I had the same problem when trying to change Rotation Lock. Don't know if the problem was with RL or just that 3rd button from left. Either a soft reset or waiting for app updates to complete made it work.

    EDIT: After testing out that 3rd Settings button from left by changing it to a few different quick settings toggles, exiting settings and toggling I've found Rotation Lock to be the only culprit force closing Notification settings when I try and change it to a different option. Since all apps are updated guess I'll try soft reset again but think I screwed myself. D'oh!

    EDIT2: Same problem trying to change Quick setting button 1 from left which is set to WiFi. I don't want to change it but if I try it force closes Settings > Notifications.

    So if I roll back to 8.1 can I restore from back-up and move up to the new build and repeat the hard reset, restore from back-up process? Or does this force me to have a phone without any of my data, starting from scratch?

    MS REALLY needs to fix the upgrading process. They can't expect the average consumer to go through this junk, especially if it means losing their data, just to get the new OS running good on their phones. They are having too many regressions and stubborn bugs.
    Msft doesn't expect average user to do all of this, that's why this is Insider Preview Builds and you opt for it so stop that kind of talk

    Once again...I'm talking about the 8.1>10>Hard Reset path. Not the roll back. The rolling back to 8.1 is an issue in and of itself.

    I just reset back to 8.1. I have the option of restoring data from my backup. However, I want to skip this step, get the latest windows 10 build and then restore my data. Will if get the option to restore my data if I skip it now. I don't want to bother restoring 8.1 data if I can do it later after installing win 10.

    Here's the all-important question!

    Does Candy Crush Saga work?

    Yes it Does!!!

    But it does drain the battery, even if you're charging at the same time.

    Here are my 2 cents on Build 10549...

    I came from Build 10166 (the last Slow Ring build) - and it was ok. But lately it seemed that it was slowing down and heating up - not good! Then I read there was a new build after updating my PC (how convenient!) and went back to 8.1, then Build 10549. It was faster than I expected (from 10166 to 8.1 to 10549 in less than 45 minutes).

    About this new build, it's snappier than before, less loading, faster camera, and doesn't warm up as often doing small, average tasks. Playing games or anything requiring more obviously will make it heat up. Just charging it make it hot (unlike 8.1). But it seems to cool down pretty quickly. Movies & TV seems to be missing from the app list, not much of a problem for me. My Start screen is full of apps, so once in a while, it hiccups and jumps into position instead of scrolling smoothly, that's ok. It's just really improved - again, I'm coming from 10166, most of you were on 10536, so it might not seem so different performance-wise.

    The big question, is it daily-driveable? I've had it for almost 24 hours, and I definitely recommend it, especially for Slow Ring members!

    PS: I'm testing it on a Lumia Icon (930 for you international folks)

    Holy #$%& this thing is inhaling my battery. I went to a one hour meeting, came back and it's nearly dead. In total I'd call it under two hours and I was down to 10%. Woah.

    Build 10549 mobile, there isn't a transparency slider for the tiles on the start screen.
    It's still there, under the Start settings.

    Yeah it seems that in order to get a properly working phone you have to do a hard reset AFTER the upgrade is all done. Hopefully that is something they are going to fix, otherwise it will be a disaster.

    On Lumia 925, the cellular data plan does not work. Must be connected to Wifi to use Edge, Cortana, etc. And obviously, with no cellular data, there is no Hot-Spot.

    Otherwise, so far seems snappier than the previous build.

    Many claim the same for PC upgrades, that wiping a system to start fresh is the best. I've seen lots of criticism of novices who don't do such on PC and have issues. A final release of a product should not require a system wipe on either type of device, period.

    Check the APN settings.

    Each time I have done any kind of hard reset or upgrade during the last 2 builds (536 and 549), I don't consider battery life or phone warming an issue until several hours have passed AND I am back to using the phone with my "typical" user patterns. The main reason is that it is quite obvious that the phone has a BUNCH of tasks to accomplish even after it has been updated and become usable.

    I at least wait until I no longer see continuous uninterrupted WiFi activity. There are so many apps to update, Email accounts to sync, Photo albums to cache (yea, my One Drive Photo albums are a few years worth), 3 years of texting to reload, Xbox music pass cache to build, ............................ on and on

    It's simply amazing how much must be accomplished before the phone becomes "normal" again and indicative of how it will behave with average daily use.

    Having said all that, this build is sweeeet on a 1520. It's a sheer pleasure to carry around a device that has so much power and connectivity to the world. Although we are all still technically in preview mode of what W10M is going to be like to use, I am just blown away at what the potential for this is. Tomorrow is going to be just crazy.

    Updated my Lumia 520 to 10549. After downloading, took 2 hours to install and run setup.
    After booting, start screen very slow with Loading...
    I did a soft reset and the phone rebooted about 10 times before it came back.
    Have been running it about an hour, messaging app shows resuming then stops. Notification screen will not come up. Phone just hung again.
    Lot of apps updating, needs more time to get stable. Hmm, can only get better from here?
    Also, the phone got very very hot during install, never had the problem before.
    After another soft reset, notifications screen is working now.

    More of the same. The loading issue is a bit better but my wife tried to use it while we were in the car (her first time with Windows 10 Mobile) and she hated it. Got super frustrated and gave up.

    Consider she's used WP exclusively since the Samsung Focus (WP7) and has had a 920 since the day it came out, and this was her response to it. I'd say that's not good.

    I'd even done a reset AFTER the upgrade to just get a totally clean 10 experience on there.
