    One-handed mode is also useful.


    Funny.

    In whole, still feels like an excellent OS.

    No, it still feels like alpha OS. 😩

    Don't forget that W10M also has voice to text everywhere!
    Yeah well forgotten. One of the most useful feature out there.

    That iphone ripoff shouldn't be mentioned, and again shows the lack of forward thinking that currently defines Microsoft's mobile efforts. Here is Samsung's version which at least tries to apply some originality to fixing the problem.

    Far better solution than the copycat kludge Microsoft has implemented, but I bet because its on an android phone it will be panned...

    to be honest i am disappointed in Groove its too slow :/ sometimes takes time to play next song and sometimes stops abruptly!
    i do love the one hand usage mode so nice to have that! beside that the latest build kicks a$$! haha its fast smooth and there is absolutely no resuming screen! even Edge downloads files flawlessly when locked too which it usually couldn't in 100mb+ files

    I have no problem with lag on Groove. I keep about 400-600 mp3 (190-320kbps) on my SD card .. hope you have a highspeed card !!

    The new icons and font make everything much easier to see and read. The whole OS just looks more professional and nice.

    The settings are much better organized and easy to use.

    Groove is vastly improved. The bug I had in which a random song from my recently played list would automatically start playing with no input from me seems to be gone. The app is more attractive.

    Have to write something negative: no new podcast app.

    I have 920 (the innards are identical to the 1020 except for THAT camera!!!!!) Don't have any problem with Groove either, though I don't use flac files. Hope you get the problem sorted out.
    My 920 is getting a new lease of life on W10M... Cheers

    And sorry, adding the Flashlight to the action center is truly not a feature to brag about.
    What seems like something that you wouldn't use is a great feature for me. I use flashlight dozens of times in the day at work at the factory. It's so easy to just swipe down and switch on flashlight. My engineering colleagues have to go through so many steps to get to the flashlight app on their phones that it's just frustrating. And then so many steps to switch it off.

    Walking in the dark at night, just enable the flashlight. Searching for an item in the house in the dark, shining a light in dark corners or tight spots. These are reasons why having flashlight in action center is so useful.

    All positive here as well with my 950xl. Loving the phone and the system. I love seeing the system evolve like I did with the desktop Insider Preview.

    By long pressing the windows but'n, you can have a half-screen to easily reach the uppermost icons. Eh.

    You can now set your Groove music auto open when plugged-in headset through Gadgets.

    He was talking about the implementation part and not as a feature though.

    Oh, that's what that is.... I had it installed...forgot I installed it... When a call came it showed CID info even if it was not in my contacts.... I hard reset and I didn't reinstall it, thought it was a 10 feature...going to re-install that right now...Thx :)
    Hasn't WP done this since 8.0? I don't have any apps like that and my phone has always done that. Well, nevermind, when I call a business for instance it showed up with the name, not the number, when dialing from a search.

    It doesn't do it for incoming calls.

    As for flashlight in the Action Center... I forgot it was there and have been using the video camera light...

    -_-;;

    Thank you!

    Notification Center is miles ahead
    Battery Saver is better, more detailed with more battery saving options
    Start Screen More Customizable
    Store is better and a seperate app from the OS and can be updated like a app
    Skype Integration is better (step in the right direction at least)
    More control of the display you can make most of the phones view like the 1520
    Universal Apps are Better
    Actionable notifications
    Groove music ****S on Xbox Music
