    I found the phone had to have the screen on otherwise the WiFi disconnected and caused errors on downloads that were half way through.

    Hello DeathMojo,
    Do you use HTC Dot View? Does it work with this new release of Windows 10 Mobile 10549?

    I don't know if anyone mentioned it before, but on 10549.4, Edge remembers the page and even specific position on page after reboot.

    Also, it scores 457 in HTML5test, 1 less than the PC version (consistent difference).

    Alright, after a day of letting things settle down, and turning off Cortana because of that one bug, I must say, I REALLY like this build on my 1520. I refused to do a factory reset because a new color somehow glitched onto the color picker (was never able to replicate this with my Lumia 830) and it's the BRIGHT, powerful cobalt that existed in WP8, but became the washed out terrible cobalt in 8.1. It's absolutely gorgeous lol. Anyway, there's only one bug or lack of optimization, and that happens to be the camera:

    I use the native camera app because I like being able to shoot full 16mps without having to settle for a 5 mp oversampled or having to have multiple files created for the same picture. One thing is that, after taking a picture (and the native camera app takes great pictures), it takes a goddamn year to 'add finishing touches.'

    Other than that, it's REALLY nice.

    I have been running it on a 1520 since it first came out. It is smooth and fast. My only complaint is the battery drain. I would call myself just an average user. Mostly text, web surfing and phone calls. Battery life on 8.1 was much better. But I still like 10 better. Just have to charge more often.

    Found out this build makes the phone get hot while charging. With all radios turned off.
    Last build got hot while charging through Qi, this one does it even with a normal charger.

    I went to check the charging stats in the battery apps and it showed a charging rate of over 50% per hour. I found this to be more than a bit weird, and potentially dangerous.

    Also, while in normal use it works better than the last version, this build has a tendency to go REALLY hot REALLY fast.

    I'll give it a couple of days and I'll see if I keep using it. I'm tempted to go back to 8.1 and forget about the troubles but there's a couple of things that I like in W10M vs 8.1. Though without Cortana and with massive battery and heat problems I'm seriously considering it.

    There's an option in the phone info section of Settings, IIRC, at the bottom there's a button to do it.

    I think I've tried most of the fast ring previews and found none of them really usable on my Lumia 630. The previous build seemed promising at first but then deteriorated to the point where about four days ago I was so frustrated that I reverted to 8.1 - not a light decision because I knew it would take with it the use of my bluetooth keyboard. I installed 8.1 from scratch, so it was pretty clean and though I think 8.1 vindicates all the UI decisions Microsoft has taken with 10, it was very nice to have a phone again that was fast, responsive reliable.
    But now I've upgraded to the latest version and on current showing I'm thinking they've nearly cracked it. I've learnt a few things along the way, like the need to remove all the grouped folders from the start screen, but with that done it seems to have transferred all my personalisation and apps without any problems, and is currently performing smoothly and quickly, so that I've not even felt the need to do a hard reset. I think as others have suggested the battery drain is heavier than 8.1, so that still needs to be optimised, but it's looking good, as indeed it needs to if they're going to launch the damn thing next month...

    Just want to use this as a point of comment. I went through the process to get this build as soon as it was available.

    My observations
    10536 gave me this issue of it REALLY heating up during charge, I didn't spend enough time to find out what was causing it (all radios on, wifi only, bluetooth etc)
    I read another comment in this thread that 10549 is crisp, clean. I really do agree. When i used the phone recovery tool, I didn't restore to a saved back up (though I did back up before doing all of this). Whether it's the new build or the fact I started fresh, I'm happy with the responsiveness.

    I noticed some hiccups in regards to Edge; at times when I'm about to type an address, (i begin typing m.fa....) and it prefills it out- it'll show prefilled, however the text that is highlighted (that it filled in for me) wont be visible, that's just when I first open edge though.
    - Also in edge, attempting to save a picture from a page is spotty, sometimes when choosing a location to save it'll crash out. Other times when it does 'save' it, it really doesn't or it's a 0kb file with the name of the image I attempted to save.
    - I've noticed this a build or two back but I'm still not able to copy and paste a link between tabs. But a copied link from edge to say a message works.

    I'm just blabbering out things I've compared since things are starting to really smooth out with this one. I like this build.

    Oh! duh, it's not heating up anymore when it's plugged in an charging, both bluetooth and wifi are on too.

    Anyway, good overall improvement with all of this. Looking forward to the next build.

    Things i like about the update :

    1. "Seems faster"
    2. Phone now vibrates while ringing, not just at the beginning
    3. Phone now vibrates when the other person answers the phone
    4. You can customize the phone in the display settings to show 5 action centre icons and phablet like multitask menu - restart required, I recomend the 250% setting, 225 seemed too small for my taste (Lumia 930) - ( things appear a bit small but you can increase the text size in the ease of acces menu )

    Things i don't like :
    1 After i take a photo in Windows Camera, i can;t see it. Must close the app and open it again to see it from the app's photo viewer.


    Slowly but surely Windows 10 is becoming the OS with the most customizable start screen. With a little bit of imagination you can change your start screen however you like, with all kinds of icons, transparent, colored, semi transparent, non-existent, folders, with apps like Tile gap you can put your tiles wherever you want, if you want ! The new display settings + the show more tiles options allow for a really minimalistic start screen, like 2-3 almost invisible small sized transparent tiles etc.

    I kinda like how things are evolving with the OS so far, if Microsoft keep this level of developing for another year or so, amazing things will happen. However it is hard to believe that they will continue at this rate after the official Windows 10 release, after all they are a company and their goal is to bring money to the stock holders, spend as little and get as much as they can.

    These crazy changes are a necessary evil to their pockets, but a good thing for all smartphone users, cuz' as of now Google and Apple are forced to up their game as well to avoid losing some market share to Windows. This competition puts all smartphone users in advantage.

    One new issue, and one issue I had hoped would be cleared up but isn't.

    The new issue is that none of my apps will download. I have 78 apps waiting to download, but they all keep failing with error code 0x80246008.

    The old issue is entering a number in the dial pad is very slow. You press a number and it beeps for like three seconds before you can enter the next number. It doesn't do this for every number, but probably 1 out of 3. Seems like a memory issue.

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

    Transparency slider is gone too,
    Heard the same problem from previous post,
    Seems not everyone having this problem ? So i assume contact and messages bug am having isn't widespread too.

    Weird because in dialer history and speed dial, contact showed up, but it is not on people app, already try ticking up Microsoft account check box in people app setting, but no luck

    I just finished it up. Made sure I made a good fresh backup. Went back to 8.1 with WDR (had to reset 10 for the recovery tool to work). Confirmed it was Denim, then updated to Windows 10 (it updated twice). Then reset it and installed backup and its working very well so far.

    Yes this is the case, it seems that the setting to let WiFi work under lockscreen isn't there. Not sure if they just allow it now or if the option is missing currently as they added this ability back in one of the updates for Windows Phone 8.

    Installed yesterday. Been using all TP as my daily driver. The installation is quite fast, did a hard reset, and took a long time for the long list of apps to update. And than this morning checked for updates and another 17 apps got updated. Thus far, build is so much faster, camera app also much quicker to launch. Like stated, many of the bugs have been fixed. I'm running it on a Lumia 635, don't seems to have the Cortana background issue, battery life seems fine.

    Edit: There is still some "loading" "resuming" issue when returning to home screen. Though much much improved.
