    Update, I switched my language to English UK from English US and my Band2 is now fully functional. After switching languages the Band2 was still paired, I opened the Health app and was immediately prompted to update the Band2's software which it did without issue. Full sync is again working and all notifications are coming to my band. Voila!
    Bloody hell what a solution!

    I tried Redstone...but too many bugs for dialy use...soo I went back to 164...which is very stable and has good battery life...i guess will return to Redstone once it has more features and stable built...i just did a hard reset to get to 164...soo if this version is not stable then don't wanna hard reset again....

    Mine is actually working fairly well on this build, even without a reset. Love that the app drawer background finally stays.

    I'm rolling back to stable branch.

    MY lumia 950xl has a bunch of issues.
    Apps crash
    battery drains quickly
    phone runs really warm in certain scenarios which It never did before.

    Honestly, Redstone is not bringing anything that great in terms of features right now. I think i'll stick with stable until something really cool comes out. The fact that my lumia 830 runs way better is sad hehe.
    Made the exact same decision for the exact same reasons with my 950 XL. Battery life was atrocious. 10%/hr on idle...crazy. The stable branch is working well though no problems with .164

    Which solution the English UK keyboard? They don't have word flow? On Winbeta they talk about using it all the time...why wouldn't the UK Keyboard have word flow.

    Probably not on the 950 phones. If so they would already have it

    Factory reset. W10 Mobile tends to need this every time.

    That's normal, it needs two days for sync and downloads all core and 3td party apps. Same as a desktop

    Why 2 days? My lumia 1020 takes an hour or two to finish upgrade and then there's nothing after that. Or is this after a hard reset? Even if it was, it would take me a couple of hours to get back all apps and copy all content back. Unless the wifi is really slow like 100kbps.

    Been running stable branch since yesterday and definitely much better. Phone doesn't get super warm while playing candy crush jelly. It's the only game that did it which I found weird cuz even asphalt 8 didn't.

    Everything is speedy, snappy and no crashes.

    Yay!

    I'll move to redstone if they get split screen for multiple apps or transparency in action center. Or something cool they reveal.

    That's sync and stabilizyn, nothing you can see on screen, but you can notice in data usage, cpu heating, battery instability. That's indipendent of wifi power, I'm pretty sure it works faster in 3G/4G due to higher upload bandrate available.
    I notice it "on the field" on many Lumias, same as new laptops "out of the box".
    On desktop that's called caching and prefetching, I'm pretty sure Win10 mobile too has a prefetch system area.
    After two days, phone starts to work at his best

    I am having no issues with wordflow at all and actually see no difference in formatting once I changed to $ and 12 hour clock.

    Well, darn. Although this update brought Cortana back with announcing incoming texts, it also brought back the problem of only getting about ONE response done if the phone is locked. After you send a response Cortana cuts off acknowledgement ("I sent..."). When you unlock it she finishes her sentence. Because of this problem any subsequent incoming texts while locked will never get announced. Very sad.

    for me, this latest build has been unreliable. Loading...... on the start screen so often it actually got annoying.

    Ive gone back to regular builds for now. will wait a while before trying redstone again. that said, restone - for me - was the best on battery life! and damn the phone was smooth and fast!! cant wait to see what will come with a more polished and stable product

    2 full days on this build and its the best I have used yet on my L950 (at least in weekend mode, tomorrow will be a test). I have the older firmware not the recent one from a few weeks ago. My model wasn't listed.

    I have had the best battery life on idle of less than 2%. previously the best I got was 3.5% on previous Redstone build. I do have an issue with Camera flashing and it also does it when playing videos. Annoying but not a deal breaker. I have had one random reboot whilst in my pocket but phone started up good after that. Previously when I had that I had to pull battery and try again as it booted unstable.

    I only ever got up to .107 in the "production" branch. Have had issues with my phone the whole way through. Never tried a hard reset, too worried ill lose my SMS as that's appears to be still monumentally broken, no idea if new SMS coming in are being backed up. That said I understand why people complain about this all being a beta. The point is I know I paid AUD$1000 for my phone which in its best state I would say has finally come from an Alpha product to a Beta product with this release. I have never been able to recommend this phone to anyone due to massive issues with battery life and stability. I have had clients who have been interested and asked about it and I have had to advise them against it.
