    OK so I'm trying out 8.1 on my 1520 for the first time since I bought it about a week ago now. I bought it to try out W10M since I've only used 8.x long ago so I knew what it is like. So now I have tested 10 for a little while and I like it.

    I decided to downgrade to 8.1 to compare just a little bit. I knew it was more "limited", or stripped down one might say and when you compare them it's true. However 8.1 at the moment feels like a much more "complete" OS because it just feels that much more polished and consistent when using it. I love the consistency in 8.1! And to be honest I prefer some things from 8.1 than from 10. Like the animations when you open up the Store or People app, I've always loved that animation and design. True Metro design and it is perfected in Metrotube in my opinion. Windows 10 Mobile lacks that kind of personality and that consistency will be worse than it could because many apps will be in Metro design for quite a while still I belive. I don't know but 8.1 just feels more "thought out" in the design appartment, regarding overall design.

    Another thing that hits you is the smoothness. It feels much smoother in operation, and it is. Instagram is less Choppy. Multitasking view is less choppy. Homescreen is less choppy when going back to it. And another thing I prefer that has to do with this sort of is the way the scrolling behaves in 8.1. When swiping away a list it for example it scrolls smoothly then slowly the speed decreases and all of a sudden there is this firm and noticeable stop. It doesn't seem to be there in 10. There's no sudded halt in the scrolling. It also feels more wonky in the scrolling. Sometimes my scrolls in 10 gets way more speed than they should. The scrolling just feels more inconsistent in its behavior. When keeping the finger on the screen and scrolling 8.1 is smoother too. In 10 it stutters faily much from time to time when doing that.

    The last thing that hit me pretty fast is that 8.1 seems more power efficient. Still early to tell but the phone seems to have less drain. Not that I had bad battery in 10 it was good and lasted me a full day easily or even two if I didn't use it very much. Standby was also great. But 8.1 seems even better and has what I had come to expect before buying the phone judging by its battery.

    Now I realize that W10M is not finished yet and it can be felt. However it has been shipped with new phones so MS seems to consider it RTM. I really do hope that they will improve battery life and smoothness in the next couple of builds though otherwise I might be really tempted to stay with 8.1.

    It will be there when the lumia 730 gets the official firmware update which will have the drivers for the LED notification.
    Again nothing official so I can argue both ways.

    You echo my sentiments to the letter.
    It got to a point with W10 *previous builds* that I had to resist the urge to snap the phone in two in a fit of rage because the damn thing would just reboot or lag or hang whenever I tried to do anything with it...
    Case in point:
    - Tried to show a photo to someone : nope. Start screen animation froze while opening the Photo app, and boom, reboot.
    - Tried to take pictures here and there : nope, by the time the Camera app is ready, it was way too late. Or it just didn't take the shot. Or reboot!
    - Tried to answer the phone : nope. Freeze. Reboot.
    - Glance : hahaha! Nope.
    - Oh you wanted to open this App? Cute, but Nope.
    - Bluetooth in the car? Nope.
    - Ask Cortana to play some music? Pfff. Nope.

    The situation would always deteriorate with time : the longer I stayed on a build, the worst it would get.
    Sure it was generally not bad just after a fresh install and hard reset, but three to four weeks down the road it just became a Nope phone.

    W10 is nice to look at, the settings are better organized, and all that, but I'll take a fully functional 8.1 phone over a pretty face, tyvm...
    Looking forward to the day W10 will be polished enough for me to want to try it again.

    Same issue also on my Lumia 830... I also uninstalled and re-installed Motion data from the Store, with no luck.
    Back up and hard reset fixed it for me...

    It is the first time that the back up in 930 worked so well.
    I have almost no issues now

    Yep, that's about it.

    You must have a lot of patience; that will probably be Christmas 2017

    Pity those who are lumbered with the VERY expensive 950 / 950 XL, with NO chance of an 8.1 downgrade; oops!

    Hello,

    Seems like when memory is low, that is when apps do not open. Any solutions here? I try to move apps on my SD card but I always get that infamous error message...0x80073d0b.

    I am on the 640XL with a 64gig microSD. Would be nice to move all apps onto it that is not part of the OS (ex: calendar, calculator, motion data).

    Besides this, the OS is the best preview build to date. I think this memory issue I am facing is what many of us are and could be probably the biggest issue we have which is leading to all our complaints (random reboots, apps shutting down when trying to open, etc).

    Any suggestions besides a factory reset? ;-]

    Here is another significant issue I find with my Icon. With 8.1 pictures were awesome, and instantaneous. WithWin 10, there is a significant delay before it actually takes the photo. It is no longer my point and shoot device. I see a great picture, press the button, and the subject moves before it actually responds. Example: A really cute, full face pose, push the button, the kid has time to turn completely sideways, and then the shot clicks with a blurred photo. That NEVER happened with Lumia Camera and 8.1. The photos with that software were so good people compared them to DLR cameras, and the Lumia's won. Now, maybe 10% of the photos are even saveable. Also, sometimes the camera button simply does not take the picture. I go back later to view the photos, and half never were taken or saved !
    THIS!
    Camera and speed of capturing have been disappointing in W10m 10586.11.

    Would someone with a 640 XL please confirm as & when the stuck updates in Store go through to completed status, as I **may** retry this preview build in a few days, but not until that's fixed. Thanks folks :)

    Actually for my lumia 925 image quality has improved somehow, not by much but its noticable.
    Only MS know what are they doing.... o.O

    Sorry Glossywhite, on my 640XL some stuck apps did go through but others still remain.

    Network Services
    Touch
    Motion Data
    Lumia Storyteller

    Still all fail.

    Apparently, they are not compatible with the device so not sure why they are trying to update then? Hopefully it will get fixed on a device by device basis as everyone has said.

    Just my input: No random reboots or fatal freezes or heating issues in my 535. Battery seems to be better than in 8.1 but charging is slower. Did not soft reset for 2 days and it is smooth. I installed from 8.1 perhaps that is the case. Everything i need works smooth.

    Well, if I read that's it's stable, and most of the stuff works, I may give it a try. Mmm. Yeah, may end up 2017. If the phone survives that long!

    Pity those who are lumbered with the VERY expensive 950 / 950 XL, with NO chance of an 8.1 downgrade; oops!
    Ouch. Yes. The 950 looks very interesting, but not with the current buggy W10. Nope. Been there. Nope nope nope.

    Feels very much like make or break time for MS : if they can't get W10M in tip top shape for the 950, people will burn it to the stake...

    My 535 is also enjoying this build. But don't you have like a dozen of apps in your store queue (extras+infos, mixradio, etc), with an update error?
    i had 2 apps update stock, touch and extras&info.. MS did fix it already.. just now :)

    I own a Lumia 930. I love that I can capture slow motion video now but my problem is that when I try to edit one the editor doesn't seem to open.
    I am on 10586.11. Did already had reset twice. Anyone with the same problem? Any workaround? Hope they fix it with a camera update..

    Found the solution just had to uninstall Lumia moments

    Just upgraded, have a few questions....
    Is there a way to unsync skype from messaging app? I find it annoying and i would much rather have it separately.
    And my lock screen notifications don't seem to be working. They just dont show. (Action center and live tiles work ok). Has anyone encountered the same problem?

    Yes, enter Video skype and in settings tap Exit / Log out and confirm
    It's the only way. Forgetting to log out from skype leaves it forever online and linked in messages
