    Crap build all round this one. Had loads of issues on my L950, did a hard reset, got new and different issues. The brightness issue being the main one, though the workaround mentioned above gets around it for now. Battery life still poor though.

    This build has been worse one for this years all builds, my L1520 heats too much to a point that i can barely hold it, i had to plug in headphones to talk as it started to hurt keeping the phone near ny face... im thinking of going back to the slow ring until next build hits the fast ring and hopefuly that wil solve this issue. Glance is very slow too,

    What are the major differences if any between the general official release and the fast-ring Redstone release? Think I've finally had enough of the preview versions now, but want to know if I might be letting myself in for more issue by going backwards. I'm running a L950.

    Thanks.
    Hey speccy, some of he apps that might be affected going back to a previous build:

    Maps: this is the app that pushed me over the edge to go with the inside program to begin with.
    Edge: Swipe to go to a previous page.
    Store: new look.

    The only biggie for me from the above list would be Maps App, but I have been pretty fortunate with the last few builds, 950XL lasts long enough for my needs (I still travel with a Car Charger, Fast Charger, and 2-External Battery Supplies), Phone runs Cool, usability has been very good.

    Only things that "I notice" that are not working correctly are:
    - Glance; it does not show the time and notifications most of the time when I pick up the phone.
    - my Camera Click, and Screen off sounds are some kinda funky most of the time.
    - Sometimes I will get a hiccup, but preforming a soft reset (or more), or giving it a day or two, seems to allow the phone to right it's self in most cases; for me anyway.

    I feel your pain. The builds have been getting worse not better. It feels like a half-assed effort to create stable and functional builds. The OS overall is unresponsive, apps hang, crash for no apparent reason. Battery life is poor. How about getting us a build with core functions working properly and rock solid. Then build on that. My WiFi drops for no reason, have to turn off/on to get it working. Bluetooth is spotty. Come on MS get of your *** and get this stuff fixed.

    Seems there is a rouge process or something happening that is causing a process to just hammer the CPU at 30-35% constantly. Draining the battery and heating up the phone.

    svchost.exe is the process running under user: <devicename>\WPNONETWORK



    Can't upload the ETL log since its like 250MB, but haven't been able to pin point why.

    Happens on both my 735 and ICON. Only way I get to silence the process is to turn on airplane mode, which usually will stop it from churning.

    But that is not practical, also turning on WiFi/BT/Location/NFC in airplane mode doesn't seem to kick the process up, might be related to cellular data/SIM maybe? if I remove the SIM card no heating or CPU usage, put SIM card back in and toaster mode activates....

    Did anyone tested a temporary swithch to Production Ring? It should stop completely telemetry and testing code (I guess)

    My 650 haven't any iussue (except I hate new Glance)

    And for today's brand new issue (for me at least), is that I took a photo, went back to the start-screen, clicked the photo tile to view the pictures I had just taken, screen went completely black aside from the on-screen nav-bar keys, it sat there for unresponsive for about a minute then rebooted itself. After the reboot, the particular photo I wanted was actually there, small positive in a sea of negatives.

    It's not only cellular data. My L930 drains battery with cell data on or off. It only helps a little bit.
    In fact there were some similar issues with older builds but this has been happening for only 1-2 days after update. Now this issue is a consistent problem.

    Battery on my Lumia 640 XL is getting drained heavily on this build too and it is also getting warm even if I don't do anything on it.

    Lockups and random reboots are happening with increased frequency on my 950 and my wife's 950. In one case I observed it happening while it simply sat on the table on the charger. Sad, very sad.

    Which maps app is available with the production build of Win 10 on the L950, can I still get Here maps?

    Maybe they'll get it right in the next 500-700 builds. There have been some bugs since last August that I keep on stumbling upon every day on both my phones, but instead of fixing them, they work on bugs that occur once in a lifetime.
    Way to go, Microsoft.
    Stay classy!

    They will never go right. It is shame that company with this amount of money and programmers cannot do properly one thing. There is no single proper working thing. The same W10 PC as well.

    I believe Here Maps is only available on 8.1 (could be wrong), and Here will no longer be supported for windows phones soon.

    Noticed today, that while on a website in Edge; even though the cursor was in the text box, the keyboard was not activated/present, 9 out of 10, or so, times. 950XL

    You are correct, the brightness does not work at all... it's useless cause it's there but not usable. Now battery life is keeping your phone plugged in at all times cause if you don't it will die within 1-2hrs. I know it's only a preview OS but how the f**k you take 2 steps forward then 10 steps back. I have this theory that no one at Microsoft knows how to make a phone OS. I am only saying this cause they have not only fired all the remaining Nokia employees, but also almost half their own phone division and merged it with the Surface division.

    I feel the same way you do, they have no competition in the PC OS market... and then they do have competition in the phone OS market yet still f**k up both. This company has no drive even when they are failing or doing good, they are like a useless lazy teenager with no motivation or skills that just spends all day in their rooms and do nothing!

    Yes I have, it's the phone app. All you can do is close the app and reopen it.

    Yes my 1520 is always on fire and it's not even doing anything cause I am not using it!
