    Microsoft is seriously testing people's patience with their Windows 10 Mobile.

    Anyway, is anyone here using the Lumia 920 with W10M? I have version 10586.29 (public release) and I am unable to use Glance. As soon as it is launched from settings, it crashes. Also, I am having camera launch error after doing a Skype video call. Any changes with this build?

    Opera is a huge battery hog. Unfortunately, there's no better alternative.

    I've had a pretty easy time of it up to now, but had some issues with this build on my 925 thus far.

    Upgraded on Wednesday night, phone left on wireless charger overnight and was flat by lunchtime yesterday. Then this morning I had 2 text messages from my provider, once telling me I had 20% of my data allowance left at 3:40am then another at 6:40am telling me it was gone. System has used 274mb.

    I also don't have my historical text messages so far.

    Something that is massively better in this build is, sending attachments via "Outlook Mail", it now clears the Outlook logo very quickly and sends it in the background. Previously it took ages to get past this stage, and you were stuck staring at the blue Outlook screen while it sent. Also, it now has text on screen telling you what it's doing i.e. sending mail (albeit very briefly now).

    A very nice improvement!

    Something that would be useful (to me at least) would be to have a separate volume for Cortana. I have my volume all the way down for apps a lot of the time, which means if I want to ask Cortana anything, I don't hear the response because the app volume is zero. A volume control for Cortana would be a great addition.

    It took about 3 hours to get the .107 OS Build to be downloaded. Lots of 0% progress over 2 hours. One must be connected to Wi-Fi not Cell data and should be plugged in for the update. When the download page means to reschedule restart at 3:30am they mean it. Being impatient, I attempted restarting at the end of the download at least 3 different times just leads you back to the same restart screen on the Windows update page. You must also be a Windows Insider in the Production lane, because I received the same reboot "gears" on the new firmware update. For us in the USA on AT&T network the firmware is 01078.00027.15506.02005.

    Apparently others have been complaining about not getting the update, but MS has responded that there over 180 variants of the new firmware because it is carrier and country dependent.

    So far the battery life seems to be the same. Using the Waze app last night, it consumes 20% battery for each 1/2 hour of use. The phone seems to be getting much hotter than before and of course the same slow 4g LTE downloads on the AT&T network.

    One thing I like about this build is, when using Cortana and you hit "enter" after finishing what you say, it actually stops now; before, the enter button was useles. No matter how many times I would hit it to end the recording of my speech, it would just keep parsing and translating. Now, when I hit the button it stops immediately.

    Mine is not that version and I have a Lumia 950XL on AT&T (international single sim version).

    My firmware is the following:
    01708.00038.16025.39009

    When I got the phone the other day, I hooked it right into my PC and did a Windows Phone Recovery on it to get the newest OS and firmware available. Then, on the first boot, I restored my backup. Worked out quite well, the phone has been damn stable and nearly the same battery life as my prized Lumia 1520. MUCH better than my last go around in November with a release model.

    Ah cool, thanks! Sigh, mine is just bad. I am reverting back to W8.1. One (1) day is just not acceptable for a phone (1520) with a massive battery.
    Do what you gotta do but I have to tell you, once you've had W10m, stepping back is going to feel like Windows 98 before the service pack. Good luck.

    Well, it killed my SD card, the date has been removed from the lumia 640xl glance screen, phone is slower, still reboots randomly, photos will not load in photo app from onedrive, outlook calendar has been changed, you no longer have the option to switch to month view, to week , to day. In the process of restoring 86 apps back to my sd card. Fun stuff.

    Microsoft is making it very easy for me to go back to android. w10m is a ******* mess. i cant belive they are selling lumia 950's with this horrid operating system. Windows phone 8.1 was perfect. They are killing windows phone.

    Awesome update
    Update from earlier post, but yes. w10m is still an awful OS when compared to 8.1 update.

    Fixed SD Card, still had to manually move apps back some apps back to SD. Date on glance screen finally updated today.

    Still having issues with outlook calendar, try to delete a set reminder and the phone just black screens. Also, why does the large tile shrink and move the date when you have an appt. showing? Extremely annoying and also leaves the whole left right side of the tile blank. Edge browser is still hilariously slow. Still can not "shape type", MS's words mot mine, in the Edge browser, but can everywhere else. Weather and picture tile still is blank sometimes when returning to home screen. And apps like Xbox, store, photos, Onedrive, browser, are still excruciatingly slow compared to windows phone 8.1 update. And why do I have to wait to "resume" my start screen. Even Androids aren't this bad.

    And the lack of being able to choose whether a tile is transparent or not is insane. When you choose full screen picture for the start screen, it honestly looks horrible. Either make them all transparent or don't. I mean it looks messy.

    Oh, and now my phone will only slow charge now, and yes I am using my OG charger and have tried other chargers as well.

    I am amazed they are actually letting consumers who bought the 950's or are going to get the 650 use this version of Windows phone. (10 and not 8.1 update).

    It's like buying a new car and only to find out the A/C doesn't work at all, the wipers only work sometimes, the car randomly restarts on it's own. I am SO disappointed with what Windows is doing with w10m.

    In it's defense, (1) it is not officially ready for your phone (2) you can always go back to 8.1

    I was disappointed, massively, for a few months, but all seems well now on my 640, my 1520 and my 950XL . In fact I had it on a 830 which I got rid of a little ways back, and it was fine on that too. I just don't see the issues you see currently with many models of phone...

    Like you, a couple of builds ago, I was beginning to wonder! It now works great on our 640's, my 1320 and the 1520. My 930 is a different matter, although it's not enough to put me off! I get occasional screen flicker, transitioning can leave a 'shadow' of the text. Apart from Cortana, I love it! I just cannot get her to work. I'm beginning to wonder if it's because my phone is carrier locked....

    Had a random reboot this morning while using the Messaging app, right in the middle of typing. ATT L830 on latest insider build. Overall, things work okay, but the Messaging app is still awful. By far the weakest part of W10M IMHO. I've hard reset a couple times now, rolled back to 8.1 and reinstalled W10M and I still run into the problem of SMS/MMS messages often times being delayed being sent. It isn't as egregious since I reinstalled recently, but it can sometimes take a minute or longer for a message to be sent. I just don't get it. It makes me want to use 8.1, but I like too many things about W10M to roll back.

    Did anyone install from 8.1 with no reset?
    I updated straight from 8.1, L1520 user here, and it was fast and trouble free update. Unfortunately, the messaging app is not working- not loading messages, can't receive and send text. I tried updating the messaging app, did a soft reset, tweaked the settings but nothing worked. I have no choice but to do hard reset.

    Will keep you posted for other observation as I'm currently setting-up the phone from hard reset

    Setting up a brand new out of the box AT&T branded 950. (As many phones as I have setup for others, this is the first AT&T 950)
    Came it 10.586.0 lol
    And older firmware too.
    So first thing is to let her catch up to APPS and FW.

    Then I have to decide whether to load .107 and hard reset. Or hard reset then load 107. Or................
    :)
    I do know this already, I am getting one more bar of LTE than the 950XL's, from the same spot. It's early, but that is what I was expecting. Love the concept of Dual SIM, but not so happy with the performance compromise I think it necessitates.

    anyone else see that from the action tiles, click and hold on bluetooth does not bring up bluetooth screen?
    on Lumia Icon now (was on L928 previously with prior .71 and I know it was working with that build on that device).
    did not try this before updating to .107 so cant say for sure if this is device specific.

    wifi click and hold works just fine and brings you to the wifi screen, just dont have that same behavior with bluetooth now for some reason.

    anyone else confirm same on there device?

    must be device specific. rebooted and still not able to do this.
    did do a hard reset after the .107 update so that is off the table as well.
