    As for using resources, what resources specifically? The memory whether it is empty or has something in it is no different. The memory controller will still refresh it. CPU cycles? If the app is dormant in the background it will not use CPU cycles. Battery power? Again, if the apps is dormant in the background it will not use battery power. Apps that are dormant in the background will activate faster than apps that need to load from flash memory and go thru their initialization. If the memory gets filled with dormant apps, Windows will close apps as needed to free up RAM for apps that are being launched.
    The only thing is that the dormant apps add to the number of apps visible in Task Manager making it possibly a little harder to locate a certain app.
    I think the're old Android people Fuzzy John, or talked to Android people, so they don't understand.

    Hello all. My first post here. I installed two days ago the latest build on my Lumia 930. It was the first version of W10 that i tried on my Lumia. The environemnt is really nice and user friendly. I really like it. I want to mention also a few problems that i noticed.
    There is a problem with photo saving (some delay), which i think it is also mentioned above. Also, when i receive emails, i don;t see any icons on the down part of the screen as it was on W8.1 (i don't know if this is a problem or just a change on W10. I also noticed a problem on the battery. With moderate usage with W8.1 the battery was lasting 1,5-2 days, but now almost 1 day. But for that i need to "play" a bit more and see how it will go the next days.

    There's actually a cool trick in Action Center. When you long press a shortcut, you'll be taken to the settings app and go to that setting :D

    This is a very unstable release. Sometimes groove works, sometimes it tells me it's really empty in here and I ought to think about adding music.

    Sometimes photos work, sometimes it doesn't.

    Camera opens when the pin is set. That should not be allowed. That's a grave security flaw just there.

    Maps works ok, but it needs gui refinement.

    Data roaming turns on by itself for the sheer hell of it.

    Everyday I put into question whether upgrading was the right thing, but 8.1 had so many problems I felt it couldn't get worse so I just upgraded.

    It could get worse.

    It could get worse.
    The main question is all in that phrase: WHAT PROBLEMS in 8.1, sir? Maybe if you agree by telling us about your phone model we could realize what you are talking

    That's not a phone bug, but a random pc connectivity iussue. Simply it doesn't recognize the phone as a new device

    Do you mean when the phone is locked? Camera should open when you long press the camera button (if you have enabled launch camera when device is locked

    Because of my issues with Cortana and Hey Cortana not functioning as expected, I was thinking of going back to 8.1 using the Windows Device Recovery Tool (I've never used it before), and I noticed a couple of things.

    1) My Lumia 930 isn't automatically detected. I had to soft reset when I click My Device Was Not Detected -> Lumia.
    2) After soft reset, it detects, but says that both the firmware and software versions are unknown.

    When WDRT checks the server, I see that the server firmware is 02540.00019.15234.5006, but mine is 02540.00019.14484.37005. Anyone else notice that and/or know the reason behind the "newer" firmware?

    I get no Message Notifications Sound or Vibration.

    Actually it turns out I wasn't getting ANY sounds out of it today! No Ringing, no voice, etc.

    Had to do a Soft Reset a couple times and the Sounds started working again.

    I found myself on VZW looking at New phones while I was trying to figure this out. I'm on a razor's edge right now about staying with Windows Phone or going elsewhere until something really NEW arrives from Microsoft!

    I've had this Icon since they first came out and it's getting kind of "old" even with Win10M....

    It won't give any problem to 512mb devices. I have L535 it works pretty good. So you can go for it. 👍🏻

    Agree with every single word. The two annoying things are indeed that overview is worse for multitasking and that "Windows will close apps as needed to free up RAM for apps that are being launched" - I would like to have an easy method to show Windows which of these dormant apps I do not need anymore. Example: I am typing in Word and launch some apps to quickly look something up, or an email or something drops in, I don't want Word to be closed because of insufficient memory.
    I believe that Windows will close the apps selectively. Close the ones that were dormant the longest.

    [Edit]
    This is a feature that was introduced in WP7 so it wasn't new in WP 8.0 or WP 8.1. And developers have control over it. Most of my non-Microsoft apps do close when you use the back arrow.

    Going to have to disagree with you. On my Primary desktop, I tried USB 2.0, USB 3.0 and USB 3.1 ports on it, still the same results. Even tried it at my work laptop, USB 3.0 ports, tried all 3 on this machine and the same result.

    The Phone will show "slow charging" (even though my USB 3.1 ports support Quick charge), no drive will show up, or nothing in the device manager.

    The phone is going in a charge only mode, is there a **new** setting someplace to change this ? (Android devices have this option, a sync, charge and another option when connecting via usb)

    Maybe not for you but, it's a BUG or a setting someplace.... Anyone know for sure ?

    Edit: To be 100% sure, I removed ALL Nokia drivers from (programs and features) Windows and rebooted, same result (no applications made by Nokia are installed)

    For those with issues with SMS and email notifications, a hard reset without restoring backup solves it all.
    I downloaded the preview without hard resetting and i didnt get Skype video call. Just did the reset now and the app is there!
    OS is more fluid than before reset.

    Yes, I also would not get email notifications after hard reset with restore on build 10572. The method had been fine for the builds before.
