    The biggest bust with this build is the Windows Store "Check for Updates" is non-functional. How does a bug like this get past MS QA Dept. (if they even have one), especially since they took the time to redesign the Store app. Good grief!
    They actually improved how the updates are checked. It works fine. You're just used to the long wait which isn't going to be an issue anymore.

    You dont pay attention, sir ;) It always worked, and showed the chrono list too as asked by insider to the "OMG we got it" (according to you) QA Dept.
    only the graphic button was wrong. They just fixed it too.

    Back in the rebooting issue once again, when I get a call I can talk for 1 minute and then I get a reboot. Have had some random reboots as well, going back to production. 950XL

    Does anyone think we will get a new mobile build this week. The current one is a mess, and I am trying to avoid WDRT.

    My experience with this build so far on my 950XL DS Lumia.

    1) Update process went very smoothly. After update I hard reset my device. I ALWAYS hard reset after any Insider Build. I have tried not hard resetting and I sometimes have things that don't work properly but after a hard reset everything looks and runs fine.

    2) Battery life is very good. Can't say it's any better than the last build but I can easily go from getting up in the morning until going to bed on a single charge. With that said, if I do any gaming on it then I will have to throw a quick charge on at some point. With Quick Charge though this is not a problem at all for me.

    3) Speed and fluidity are outstanding on this build for me. Resuming to an app is also much quicker than before. Scrolling and swiping are very responsive.

    4) The new store looks good but I am having a little issue with it. I checked for updates after installing the new Store App and everything went fine. It found about 15 apps that needed updated and worked perfectly doing so. I'm liking the new UI very much. Now though I can't check for updates anymore. I can touch the button and it flashes but never goes out and actually checks for updates. I've rebooted a few times and that didn't fix the issue. I knew there was a new Windows Central app update so I searched it in the store on my device. It found it and showed it has an update available even though Check For Updates wasn't working. It installed fine. So, I'll wait to see if it will find updates automatically from this point. Definitely not a deal breaker for me.

    Well, guess that's it for me at the moment. Again this is just my experience on my Lumia 950XL DS.

    What a diabolical mess, this update has all but finished me with windows, on Lumia 1520, now have no auto screen brightness, email sync's no longer, alarm caused the phone to crash this morning, when posting on instagram the keyboard is minus a comma, when replying to emails, punctuation marks don't show on recipients mail, cortana shows up news item on flip tile but when you open the ap it freezes and so it goes on and on and on!
    My god, who send this stuff out from MS it really is unbelievable, I've refrained from posting here for weeks but think it's time to vent.
    I just love the 1520 but I really do think it's time to jump ship.
    A year in the building by one of the most wealthy and best equipped company's world wide with supposedly the most talented staff???
    One begs to think differently.
    Yes, we all know it's a build which can be a tad buggy and we know the risks but without a doubt they appear to be break more than they fix!!!!

    Interestingly, I've never had an issue with battery life on my 735 until this build. Phone is constantly slightly warm (not hot, but warm, its doing something...) and my battery life is terrible since the latest update. It appears, based on the battery usage by apps view, that Cortana may be a culprit. But I'm not sure what I can do about it?

    I have updated to this build, the update went smooth and it works same like before with bit more consistency. Below are the issues,

    1. Dual Sim settings (as mentioned) - will not work from action center or initially . After couple of reboots and soft resets it will work.
    2. Same case will be applicable to Whatsapp.
    3. I never able to connect/pair with my Microsoft Band 2 :(
    4. Random asking for Microsoft account password even though you did a single sign -on during installation.

    P.S. I have a beautiful Lumia 950 XL and attractive red Mozo replaceable cover ;)

    24 Hours later I am still having massive battery drain on my Icon. It burns through battery faster than it can charge. Task Manager lite tells me the CPU is constantly at 50% CPU with cellular data on. The only way to get it to charge is to put it in airplane mode. I can still turn on wifi and Bluetooth while in airplane mode and the CPU usage drops to around 15%. I don't think this is an app issue because it would still burn through battery with just wifi on if it was an app issue. The problem is definitely related to the cellular data connection.

    You must use WDRT then follow the official updates.
    First, log out Insider, uninstall insider app and make a backup via settings

    Lumia ICON here. While I am really glad to see they fixed many of the Groove playback issues this build is otherwise a mess. Battery life for me is ridiculously bad. My battery dropped 40% on a 20 min. commute to work in which I never once touched my phone. I cant even stream groove via bluetooth with my phone on a Nokia Fatboy wireless charger, the charger simply cant keep up. Data connectivity issues up the wazzuu. Sometimes Groove will tell me I cant play music pass songs downloaded locally because it cant sign in (which is the whole point of locally downloading the song). It cant sign in because wifi & cellular connectivity is spotty causing me to restart my device.

    The update process was fast, less than 40 minutes from downloading the update to its finalization. No particular problems immediately, but some remarks of the last 24 hours:
    - Three random reboots in the middle of applications (email, twitter, pictures)
    - Battery has remained good, no problems
    - LG television with webOS doesn't connect over Miracast. This was fixed two Redstone builds ago and now it is broken again. Microsoft wireless adapter connections work ok
    - Brightness settings are somehow messed up
    - Programmes running from SD-card are slow in comparison with the Threshold builds

    Over all it feels much more stable than the previous Redstone build, despite the three reboots.

    My device also seems to running rather hot. I have airplane mode turned on and I'm streaming local music from groove via bluetooth, its warm (some may call it hot) to the touch. It's plugged in & it still cant charge fast enough.

    No, the Store is a MESS. I'm sitting here on a Lumia 950 with OneNote in eternal "waiting" mode. It will not update, no matter what. And I HATE this stupid "Recent Activity" garbage. What the heck is that? I don't CARE about recent activity. I only care about what I'm trying to update right NOW.

    Lumia 1520. Clean install (WDRT-> 8.1, insider 10,586,107-fast ring > 14342). No backup recovery.
    Only three problems:
    1. Uninstalling one app, it remains in the app list with blank icons. If you click, you generate black screen for a few seconds
    2. Sometimes, in edge or in settings, the keyboard does not appear in the text boxes (I had to try three times to write this message)
    3. by mail and calendar, does not bear the name chosen for the same account. I end up with Hotmail, Hotmail 2, Hotmail 2 (I have three different accounts on hotmail). Even if you change the account name (by mail and calendar or settings) the account name, in the mail and calendar, does not change while it is displayed correctly in settings, account.

    Note: Microsoft Translator crashes if you try to change language. Problem which is present from the first version 143xx
