    Anyone else having screen issues with this build? I've lost brightness control and the screen goes dark and sometimes black. Reboot is the only fix I've found. 950 XL DS US.
    I read that MS is working on a feature were Redstone 2 will automatically change the tone and color of your screen depending on your current lighting environment, or time. Do you think it is possible you are seeing some of effects of this development, and we all may see some of these effects on future builds, as it progresses?

    Having problems with BBM again on this build (last few builds of Redstone 1 it was working pretty good). Slow opening and crashing.
    Is it designed to run on 10?

    It's possible but I had this same error during the early builds of RS1. When I try to wake the device up, the screen is black. With Iris scan enabled, the screen does turn on when it tries to scan me or if I hold down the power button. I had this exact issue early on with RS1.

    I don't bother with the iris scanner anymore, it's just quicker to actually punch in the pin (for me at least). I also saw the issue previously though where the iris scanner seemed to come on at the wrong time and the screen was black.

    I also now have the brightness issue, though not as bad as you it would seem. My screen goes darker unexpectedly on this new build, but not so much that I can't see the screen, simply locking the screen, then unlocking it brings it back to the proper brightness. I haven't needed to reboot to clear this... yet.

    Same here. Noticed it first time in the previous snapshot. 950XL Norway. I do a soft reset.

    I only have Iris on to wake the screen up. I can't punch in the numbers when its black. :)

    I've not come across any deal breaking issues ( for me anyway ), although one I have found is odd. In Cortana home page, if I select reminders lightbulb, it crashes back to start screen. If I use Cortana search bar with text, or I tell her, it works fine!! If that's the only gripe I have found so far, I'm happy! Now watch what happens...... ;-)
    Yes I found this too, how do I report it lol, I'm noob ...

    I just replied to a gmail email from my 950XL DS using the Outlook Mail app. The reply did not show up as a threaded message with the original email, nor does it show in sent mail (even after syncing). Basically, there is no sign on the phone that the reply ever happened. But it did, as I can see it in gmail on my PC.
    So this seems like a real issue for me, and a serious one. Anybody else seeing it? Replies to emails not showing up anywhere.

    No issues here, pure gmail, and google apps for work, no issues. May be remove and re add accounts?

    Not here. Maybe a hard reset is needed in your case or just try to live with it for a day or two

    did you verify that your Incoming email server is correct?

    From you Gmail inbox > Hamburger icon (top left) > Accounts > Gmail account (tap and hold) > Account Settings > Change mailbox sync settings > Advanced mailbox settings (bottom of page) > check the settings to see if they are correct:

    (imap.gmail.com:993:1), or whatever is correct for you.

    They all magically appeared in the email threads and sent mail folder this evening. All's well that ends well, I guess.

    After researching further the issue I'm experiencing is not the screen. It is a well reported unlock delay of 3-6 seconds introduced in this build on some devices. When I double-tap or hit the power button, it takes up to 6 seconds for the screen to turn on. 950 XL DS US.

    It's the hardware. The 950XL is an awful device.

    Hey Cortana working now, finally !!!
    The Cortana Reminder cannot be click to open up as it will crash, but rather you have to "tell" Cortana to set the Reminder and it will work.
    Calendar and Weather tile still intermittent lost it live tile info (already broken since few update previously)
    Average battery drain ~3% per hour with all data/wifi on.
    Notification alert still delay as when screen on only all the mails notification flooding in.
    Mails/Whatsapp live tile as well notification sync lagging although the items been open/view.
    The audio speaker breaking sound (over amplify) will happen intermittently.
    Groove sometimes failed to play on audio shortcut that pin in start page.
    WiFi sometimes will failed to re-connect to known/saved WiFi AP.

    All from my Lumia 1520

    For the 10th time: let your phone updates, syncs and chaching a ouple of days. Let it plugged and under wifi
    Check Store updates list, maybe there's some core app stuck and needing your attention

    There are issues with sharing photos again - see error message below. In some cases the only way to clear this and be able to share photos again is to reboot the phone - Grrrrrr!!! This has been happening on and off across various builds for some time now, yesterday I had no issues after the recent update, but today it's broken again.

    I checked them all in the extensive (not to say panicked!) testing I was doing around this problem yesterday. I noticed first that it only affected my two gmail accounts and not hotmail. Then, last night, I went into one of my gmail sent mail folders and synced (for the 20th time) and, suddenly, all the sent messages appeared. When I checked my linked inbox, all the sent messages were properly threaded into the email trails. Still don't know why it took everything so long to appear but it seems to be fine now.

    Mike.. I understand your frustration, but... the experience hasn't been the same for everyone. I have stressed this a dozen times, but here goes again:

    20 different people can have a 950 and all of them will have different experiences when it comes the updates and how the phone handles generally.

    In some sense, MS is to blame, but in other cases the devices were defective and I've seen countless people coming here to share that they started out with a bad device, but after exchanging it, the user experience did change as well.

    Some got a better experience with the very next device and others had to persist.

    On top of that, it really isn't the best policy to be on the fast ring and expect smooth upgrades. It happens sometimes, but most builds (especially those with new features) will be unstable
