    Camera still not as Lumia Camera but it is the best Camera so far. It needs more speed on focus and image quality. Lumia Camera was almost perfect.
    Battery drain is no issue here with only a few spots of use. Otherwise, it's almost flat, more or less 1%/hour. Sometimes it crashes on app or another but this is not serious and it can be used in a daily basis.
    I would like to see more control and options for background apps, more control on what's loaded at start and a nice task manager to keep an eye on bad apps.
    I have a problem with ringer but I bet that is fixed in the next one. Cortana for Portuguese is not there. Kinda of a joke.
    I would love to see improvements in Outlook and Calendar.

    Yes, bizarre is a good description for this post. It is definitely not the best build, especially it isn't consensus if you read just some feedback about it!

    Performance-wise it is the best W10M so far, I fully agree. But previous insider builds had far less problems on my 1520. That is OK as it is a bloody beta. But it is just bizarre that those who are lucky to face no real problems sum up that there are no problems and the version is next to final. I mean, that is what testers are for, to show up the problems, aren't they? I would imply that most of those who mention problems here and in the feedback app do this to get a nice final product.

    However, I might be wrong but I do not recall reboots and crashes when I was at home and connected to my WiFi. Could it be that some of those problems are connected to the cellular hardware, maybe when using particular bands with a particular device? You know that we all still use 8.1 firmware.
    Yes, I am one of those lucky FEW who don't have any serious issues unlike the vast hordes of suffering owners. You are doing exactly what you accuse me of by the way..... in reverse. Projecting you experience. Consensus is 10572 is a huge leap forward - thats just plain fact. Of course there are still issues and some peoples experience is worse than others but that doesn't negate the the opinions of the TINY number of punters who are loving this build (sarcasm right there btw). Actually, no I give up...its all crap and it's getting worse build after build. Bet 10575 is the worst ever....sigh.

    Fully agreed (1st part), but it does not necessarily mean that it is the best build. I am sure that builds will get better again (meaning more stable here), that's the goal. But we are not yet there when looking at the current build. I can only tell from the experience I made with my test setup, no sarcasm needed.

    Exactly, you are making a judgement based on a sample of one....you. I have this build running pretty damn good on my 640XL, 735 and old 920 (so at least not basing it on my one experience). My original post was a knee jerk reaction to a rather silly post that implied the updates were getting progressively worse. Which is exactly the opposite of reality. I have read a lot of opinion on this build and I have surmised that the general consensus is that it is rather good compared to what has gone before. Sure I have a few bugs but they are few and minor and performance is streets ahead of previous builds for me. I fully acknowledge that your 1520 might not be having a holiday on it but that doesn't change the reality for others. My parting comment was a jokey surrender to the naysayers... These happy band who can't just actually report bugs (which is actually useful) but prefer to make hyperbolic statements to get attention. I can guarantee that within 1 hour of the next release there will be a post about how it is the worst build yet. Sure as eggs is eggs...

    I am not making any judgement (was not my intention at least). As I want the product to become really good I just can't stand reading again and again that the current build already has final quality, when I can tell from my experience that it is not the case, especially when I am obviously NOT the only one with more problems in this build than previous ones. However, I think we are basically heading in the same direction, so let's just wait for the next build and judge on that one!

    I have installed in Lumia 730. Phone is working absolutely fine except few things:-
    1) Cortana is working however doesn’t read text messages ever after giving “read” command.
    2) “Quiet Hours” was initially active but stopped working later. Cortana doesn’t send message as text reply.
    3) Screen feels to be flickering while scrolling.
    4) My post doesn’t reflect in Windows Central in mobile phone.
    5) Can Not Change display picture of contacts/dialler.

    Yeah, lets see what comes next. I would stand next to you against anyone who said this is finished. For me, with this build I actually can get a feel for the finished product and it's actually changed me from a bit of a skeptic to an outright evangelical enthusiast. Until this build I had a play then went back to using 8.1. With this build I have been using it all day every day.

    It is light years ahead of where it was, but there is a good way to go. I praised it earlier, ss it is my favourite build. But returning to 8.1 is great, so smooth, and everything works.

    This was also part of my experience! :) Was 50/50 skeptic/enthusiast before, now maybe 30-/70+ despite all the new bugs I experience currently. At one point (some builds ago) I decided to leave the preview on my daily driver 1520, because it was stable enough and as I can only use one phone at a time that is the only way to really test it. Should be that in sum with each build there are more people who want to keep the OS on their device. I have no doubt that this is the case, although I might have rolled back if this was my first build.

    App or website? Did you push all the available refresh buttons? I can see it twice... ;)

    Love the new startscreen with 4 normal or 2 wide tiles next to each other at 175% text height on my Lumia 640. Very well readable on this 1280x720 screen!

    A host of improvements. The people hub update is a refreshing sight. In previous builds I would link contact accounts only to see them unlinked later on. Now not only do they stay linked, but the hub displays multiple accounts displaying the latest information they posted. In addition if you swipe left, just like in previous Windows phone OS's, it links you to their facebook page as well. I like the skype messaging integration, but don't understand the difference between skype video in the app, and the skype video app itself. My outlook now syncs with my calendar. The phone seems to process information faster. I'm having issues with 6Tag not opening up, which is kind of an inconvenience because the official instagram app doesn't allow you to upload videos, and I'm having issues using the video upload apps for instagram. I can definitely see the cross connection with my surface 3 and this is how I think MSFT will sell the windows mobile concept in the future. Not as a stand alone phone, but as an extension of you Windows 10 experience. All in all, I've been using it as my daily driver on the 640XL and haven't experienced to many issues.

    How did you get a screen shot? Whenever I press camera and volume down for a screen shot, I am sent to Insider Hub to provide a comment.

    The update takes quite a while so you need to be patient. There is a period during the loading that the screen stays Black for a long time. You may be thinking it's frozen but you just need to wait until it finishes loading. Try again or just wait until the NEXT build which is supposed to be out this week!

    Update 10572 has been working great for me for the past week. Much faster, more stable and better battery life. All of that ended yesterday when I went to take a photo and my Lumia 1520 rebooted. Since that time I have been unable to get the phone to recognize my 32gb SD card. I have rebooted several times and tried the SD card in my PC. The card is fine, but the phone no longer recognizes it. I have read that others are experiencing the same issue. My plan is to hold out for the next update in hopes that the problem is resolved. A hard reset might work, but I would rather do that after the next update. Hoping we see that update today!

    Try Pocket Casts

    I never had luck with the native Podcast app either.
    That app costs money and I don't like spending money on apps, thanks for the suggestions though!

    Finally got it to connect to my work email and calendars. Very happy. Overall though I don't see much difference between this build and 10542 on my 1020
    I for sure find 10 far better to use than 8.1, makes me look forward to the 950XL my boss wants to get us to replace our 1020.

    I'm going to be honest. I know this is a beta, but it is way too close to the final release for there to be so many problems. For the first time since I bought my 920 years ago, I'm actually worried about buying the new flagship. I can't download my music from the free apps I was using previously. There isn't a selection to have favorite photos, for live tiles. When I set up a static photo, it bugs out. And Groove?! Why in the hell did they decide to reinvent the wheel? Their previous music app was great. Want to change the name, sure go for it. But, they decided to completely recreate the app. Now it is really buggy. I understand the who beta thing. But like I said, they are weeks away from release. How are they going to get all these bugs fixed before then. If Windows 10 does not work properly on my Lumia 1020 on release day of the new phones, I will have no choice but to go somewhere else. This saddens me. I've always been that person that praises Windows Phone mobile. I'm worried.

    Working ok on my 520, it starts to have problems (slow, resuming), after about 12 hours, so I reboot it.
    Is anyone else seeing a message from Lumia Camera? It worked the other day.
    Now it says "A better camera", it says MS saying goodbye to this app, wants you to use Camera because it's better.
    And it has 2 buttons, go to camera or close.
