    Has anyone noticed that the navigation bar does not go away when swiping up from the bottom on some of the apps?
    Had this on the previous build but was expecting it to be taken care in the current build.
    Just found out that mine 640 has the same issue :-( annoying!

    Is this build faster than 10549? Can be used as a daily driver on a lumia 535?

    3 more noticeable issues with the HTC One M8:

    1) Take a picture and the camera freezes the pic on the screen. Cannot get back to camera for another picture unless you exit and re-open or view the pic from the small icon in the top left of the screen then close it. Anyone know how to resolve this? It did this in the last build as well. HTC Camera works fine but you cannot pin this one to the start screen. The option is greyed out. (After a hard reset, camera app is still freezing.)

    2) When selecting pictures from the library for a SMS - sometimes it does not select the one you tap on. Example: I click the top left pic and it selects the next row down center pic. A reboot fixes that quite annoying. (After hard reset this has not happened yet - will keep an eye on it.)

    3) Flashlight from the action center works sometimes. Other times it just flashes on then off.
    (After hard reset seems to be working fine.)

    Battery life seems only minorly improved with this build. My phone is only lasting about 2/3 the day without needing a charge. On 8.1 it lasted all day. On the last build of Win 10 it didn't last 1/2 the day. (I use the phone as a phone more than anything else.)

    Mobile Hot Spot works just fine.

    I'm going to try a hard reset since these seem to have been in the last build as well. Let's see how it goes.
    After hard reset - camera still freezes. Will keep an eye on battery life. See other notes for hard reset above.

    Upgrading from 8.1 to 10 and it runs much smoother. Although the text is sometimes easier to read on 8.1 (bolder and/or larger).
    However, I have an annoying issue. I keep on getting wifi notifications, is there some way to turn these of? It's not showing in the notification center settings.
    the wifi is set to turn automaticaly on after one hour
    set that to turn manually

    @Petru Moldovan: It was never questioned, but thanks for another explanation about that it is faster to resume an already open process than to reinitialize it... The only concern is this:

    If the OS needs that memory it will eventually get rid of that process
    If I can help the OS to collect the garbage and prefer to keep actively used content, why shouldn't I do so?

    It feels very nice, but I can't select a SMS ringtone for a contact. It shows the dialog but I only see phone ringtones. If I go to select a default ringtone, I get the right list but not for a contact. Anyone else seeing this? This bug has been there ever since they added customized ringtone for a contact.

    What i've also noiticed on 1020 is that the Messaging app crashes at times. When i am dialing a number ,there's a hiccup for a second between the 1st and the 2nd number pressed which is kind of irritating. I agree to the rest of the things you said. It's snappy and stable.

    L1320. Couldn't 'upgrade' from previous version, had to roll back to 8.1. Yes, I know I'm on an 'older' device, but previous preview ran really well on. This one constantly freezes on the start screen. Can still operate using Bluetooth, which is strange! I have had to reset twice this evening. Also, as in last build, Cortana incredibly slow to read text messages and doesn't update flight info, news etc. It's fine after a reset for a few minutes then the expanding circles stop. Maybe it's a firmware issue, after all, I doubt these are device specific. Let's hope things improve further. In the meantime, back to the old faithful 8.1. Shame as I liked the way things are going.
    Same here (Lumia 1320) with the start screen freezing issue.

    I hope the 1320 will be focused on later in fixing this issue.

    It seems to only be for WP8 apps. I'm guessing because they didn't draw properly when a phone has a swipe to hide navbar, so in this build MS are reporting the full size of the screen as actual size minus navbar to get around the problem. UWP apps still let you swipe to hide.

    Battery life is also looking good so far. I'm really liking the consistency of the UI and overall stability so far. Most impressive so far was the way I could pick up and go as soon as the install was done. No 20 updating apps in the store trying to restore themselves, no quirks that required a hard reset, nothing. I just installed and was off to the races.

    Reinstalled on 1520. Things are pretty nice but a few noticeable problems that seem to be ubiquitous throughout my Windows Phones:

    1. Groove Music eats battery alive. Even when inactive, it still showed up to 80% battery usage in the foreground. Messaging used to do this but that seems to have been fixed mostly since last build.

    2. There's a massive delay in Messaging from when you send the message to when it actually sends. Sometimes the app even crashes.

    I have an AT&T Lumia 830, upgraded from Windows 8.1 real Denim without ever having had a prior build installed. I did not hard reset after the upgrade.

    Good stuff
    * Performance is good. I think it's generally on par with W8.1. Maybe even better.
    * Battery life is hard to judge so far. I don't think it's terrible, but I'm not sure yet how it compares to W8.1. If I had to guess, I'd say it's 75%-100% of W8.1's battery life.
    * No crashiness.

    Problems:
    * Phone locked up completely in an app on first boot. Rebooted and it's been fine since.
    * Motion data doesn't collect data. I have the "Motion" setting, and it appears to be set correctly. I don't see the Motion Data store download failure others are describing. It doesn't track steps at all. (Using Fitbit to track steps, and it does show up in Motion settings). This worked with Fitbit on Windows 8.1.
    * I get the basic Glance screen that just has the time and tiny icons. I don't get full Glance with weather. Using Amazing Weather HD for Glance. The settings work and tell me my current background application doesn't work with Glance, but doesn't list any apps that do work. I don't see the Glance store download failure others are seeing.
    * Wunderlist doesn't have a working live tile. (Known issue on their end).
    * Some pinned mobile site icons are generic Edge icons.
    * When I go back from a conversation in messages to the main screen, there's no animation.
    * I periodically get a half second black screen when viewing the home screen. It looks like maybe the home screen is crashing and coming back?
    * Groove Music sometimes (always?) doesn't autoplay over Bluetooth in my car. On the upside, I haven't (yet) noticed the frequent Bluetooth skips or dropouts in my car that I had with W8.1.
    * Can't pin a battery tile with percentage to the home screen.


    Other Issues
    * Though I got used to the lock screen slide up, I don't like it. It doesn't give you any indication of what to do to unlock the phone. It also isn't consistent with how Windows 10 desktop works.
    * Agree with other people that the Outlook Calendar live tile needs to cycle through all of that day's events. All Day events monopolize the tile and lock screen, at the expense of timed events on the same day.
    * I don't like the hamburgerized menus in apps, but understand why they're there.
    * The old Bing News app was WAY, WAY better.

    Start screen has frozen on this build once so far. Was becoming an increasing problem with the previous build. I'm really liking having some speed back with the system. But storage isn't working properly. It will only show my card and the options are blank/empty. I have no room to download a new language as I wanted to see if I had Cortana in my region. Australia.

    Thanks!
    I changed the "zoom" ("Size of text, apps, and items on this display") under Settings -> System -> Display to 300% instead of 250% where I had it before.
    Turns out that since Build 10549 they have changed it so that they prioritize that the Action center rows have the same number of icons - when I set it to use 300%, there are 16 icons (4 rows of 4), which allows the VPN toggle to be included. But when I set it to 225% or 250%, there are 15 icons (3 rows of 5), and it removes the VPN icon.

    Mystery solved. I understand the thinking, but I wish that the excluded VPN icon would at least be included as an option to select for one of the 5 "quick action" slots.
    Nice find! As 250% is standard on the 1520, it defaults to the 15 icons and I am also missing VPN. Although it looks far better now (defragmented :)), I also would like to have the choice of selecting it as one of the 5 buttons.
    This seems more like a bug than anything. Report it.
