    Grabbed 164 last night from the release ring. I had to move Asphalt 8 Airborne to the sd card to have enough space. I did NOT do a hard reset.

    Here are some observations:
    Seems smooth, with good touch response.
    Battery drain much faster than 8.1.2
    Rich capture works most of the time, but is slower than 8.1.2
    Button labels cut off on the bottom.
    Unable to update Microsoft Photos plug-in and Lumia Help + Tips (US): demanding to be saved to the device even if the settings are correct or not.
    Apps list font is quite small. I have not found a way to make it larger, yet.
    Lumia Clock sound no longer available! (So sad, I really liked it as my Alarm sound!).
    Swiping inconsistent between different apps (such as email, notifications, camera).
    After opening contact list and selecting a contact, the background screen turns from black to the theme color!
    However ,while editing the contact, the background is dark, as it should be.
    Unable to pin unlabeled groove app to the start screen.
    Able to play my music from sd card.
    Equalizer does not work with bluetooth device (JBL Flip) I've never had it work with anything but headphones on 8.1
    The Calendar synced well, but I've been unable to find the options that were available on 8.1--I combine 2 calendars but cannot change the color settings for either appointments
    Microsoft Health synced correctly.
    The email swipes differently than any other app that I have used. May be more useful. May just be smoke and mirrors.
    Some changes seem to be done just for change sake. Change is hard. Change is good!

    The biggest problem for me is the battery drain. Hopefully, it will let up in a couple of days, just as 8.1.2 did
    I am thinking of doing a hard reset, then re-installing one app at a time when I have the energy and optimism!!!!
    (If this is not the appropriate thread or forum for these observations, please feel free to move them and let me know, please)

    Battery drain - let apps update over wifi while charging, make sure all apps are updated before doing anything else.
    Second thing is go to settings> system > battery and check which apps can run in background and disable them
    Third is go to messaging app and unlink skype. This will greatly improve your battery life
    Fourth, which could take time, is to check which apps can access which service. For example groove could be accessing location info when it's not needed or word having access to location etc. Disable those that are not needed. It should be in settings > permissions

    All apps were updated except for Microsoft Photo plug-in which just errors.. I've disabled most background apps.I've also been adjusting services, too.With all this done, I fully charged the phone, then unplugged it and let it sit overnight, leaving it on. This morning 40% battery gone!!! Battery Pro shows 4.6% hourly consumption!!

    I've never used skype, so I will delve into those settings next.
    Thanks for the info...

    Overnight, Wifi was on....I never allow data via cellular.
    To put the battery usage in perspective, my wife has a Lumia 640 also. Wifi is always on. Battery Pro states her usage as about 1.4%/hour, about what I used to get.....So, my battery usage has increased almost 300%...
    I've just gone through my settings once again to try and limit the bleeding......I've never signed in to Skype to set up an account, and I have (had) Onedrive off in the background......Will give it a couple of days...If usage doesn't improve I'll either do a hard reset or go back to 8.1

    You can only choose Release Preview for Threshold. Production stops insider build, like not insiders

    Which phone? It is still preparing the config update, or if it's an eligible phone it's preparing the big update already.
    If it isn't an eligible phone, simply wait .
    If it is, try a soft reset then change again ring

    Here are my observations (Lumia 620):
    - Edge browser hangs for a few seconds when surfing on certain webpages (e.g. aeroTELEGRAPH - Ihre Luftfahrt-News. Nachrichten und Informationen zu Luftfahrt und Flugreisen - aktuell, verstndlich, umfassend.)
    - Edge browser spontaneously reloads certain webpages after approx. 2 minutes of idle time (e.g. Inside Paradeplatz - Finanznews aus Zrich)
    - Edge browser is unable to properly display certain webpages (e.g. Times Of Oman)

    All the other applications and features are working nice and smoother than in the previous builds. Battery performance could be better.

    It depends on single page design and programming. Old sites with Flash aren't supported on ALL smartphones since years, so programmers must migrate soon to modern HTML5.
    Reloading depends by the annoyance notice of cookies acceptance (there is by law...), and most sites got a refresh timer inside.
    Hanging depends also to banners / sponsors / etc. . Edge doesn't support an ad-blocking, maybe in summer
