    My Lumia 950XL has lost the hotspot functionality since 14926.

    In 14926 it would turn on, but no other device could discover the network. If I turned it off it would not turn on again until reboot.

    Now in 14936 I can't turn it on even once. It just turns back off.
    No issues here switched off multiple times and on again ...

    Yeah they're probable using their iphones as a DD, and testing how windows works on them.
    Dona uses a 950XL as daily driver, team developers must use multiple lan row desktops emulators for testing on multiple configs in little time, then every build is tested by team leaders on reals device (the "Internal ring").
    They develop many variants of each update

    Hey Speccy, for what its worth, I just took a picture for my 950XL, and sent it from the camera's picture viewer via; one Outlook account, to another, without issue. Also, I empathize with you, it is very frustrating when you go to use something that is vital to the task at hand, and it does perform as it should - even if a fail is a possibility (with fast ring); still makes your job harder.
    This is the issue, it would work fine some of the time, then for no apparent reason, it would not work the next time I tried to do the exact same thing. Sometimes, I'd tap the photo I wanted to share, it would bring up the recent apps that I'd used for this task i.e. Outlook and WhatsApp, but tapping either of them did absolutely nothing at all. Other times I'd take a picture, then tap it to view/share it, and it would say something has gone wrong, or other times it would say it wasn't ready and to try again later, but no matter how long you left it, minutes or hours, it would never be ready. The only way to clear this was to reboot the handset. Another issue that cropped up while trying to complete the same task, is Outlook just randomly crashing and dumping me back to Start Screen. Sometime this would happen 3-4 times before I could successfully send the email. I wouldn't expect anyone to actually do this, but if you take a few photos, and then open the photos app, and share three photos via Outlook a few times per day, I would expect problems to pop up every now and then. It's totally unpredictable too, it can be fine, then 10 minutes later, not fine. This the main reason I had to go back to the AU as I rely on this many time throughout the day at work.

    The "Anniversary Update" is still buggy as well, in that if I try to INSERT pictures into an email, the INSERT option has the PICTURES option greyed out 90% of the time, so I can only attach them as a file, which has it's own issues as the photo gets attached as is, meaning it's a massive file. The RS2 builds automatically resized the images to make them very much smaller (when it didn't crash that is).

    When there are some nice new desirable features in the RS2 builds, I'll likely jump back in and hope for the best with the photo/outlook issues.

    I feel your frustration, I am sure you have noted it on the Feedback Hub, so I hope your issue is addressed soon, and let it be known if/when they do:)

    I have left feedback :) Looking forward to seeing some new RS2 features, then I may be tempted to jump back in. I decided against getting an Android phone, the camera is important to me, and the only handset that suited my needs was the Galaxy S6, or so I thought, until I read how bad the battery life is. I'll be sticking with my L950 with drastically less apps, but with a battery that's still 65% since being unplugged at 7am (it's now 6.20pm). Not much good having more apps if the battery won't even get me through the working day, let alone the evening.

    To start with, since this build I am no longer receiving SMS notifications from the messaging app. The texts come into the app without notifications on my device.

    Well, I'm sure it doesn't happen to everybody. Otherwise everyone would be talking about it.

    For what it's worth mine turns off immediately after turning it on only if WiFi is off.

    If I turn WiFi on and then enable hotspot, works fine.

    Reporting for L930:

    system is very responsive, there is a delay when switching on display, and clock/date shows sometimes with noticeable delay, but as for movements within system/closing apps/etc., that's now super smooth (I dare to say, almost on par with WP 8.1)

    Not sure if it's the Facebook App or if it's with the Fast Ring RS2 builds on my 950XL but not every contact of mine syncs with Facebook. Some do, some don't, and it's quite annoying.

    I tried all sorts of things...like delete the app then reinstall. I tried deleting the app and then waiting for the next build to be pushed out, downloaded the new build, then reinstalled the FB app. I tried simultaneously having both the FB and FB Beta app on my phone to see if the Beta app would catch the contacts I couldn't sync...nothing worked!

    As another user wrote yesterday, check your notification settings if by chanche "Keep private in lock screen" is enabled

    Someone suggested sideloading old Microsoft Facebook instead new Facebook made by Facebook

    Yes, I've noticed that, for me, it ONLY shows things coming up tomorrow or the next day, not today! Haven't checked to see if there are any changes in settings that might affect it.
    This morning's Calendar update has made the live tile even weirder for me (if that's possible). Now, the smallest tile size shows tomorrow's date (not today's), the medium tile shows nothing at all and the largest tile shows me one event for today (the last one) and says no more events for today (even though I have several). I'm going to try a soft reset.

    EDIT: Soft reset did nothing.

    LOL Calendar live tile is gone crazy! Change day every minute! Most Insane bug ever
    Yes, indeed! I thought it happens only for me after the update, for me it changes in every few seconds from 30d to 1d, 2d and repeats.
    And like others said, a lot of background tasks and apps no longer work on battery saver mode, no longer can't even have Glance screen with battery saver on, even Groove stops playing. Ridiculous...

    Yep, let's hope they update apps fast!

    Yes I can confirm this is the case, let's hope they update the maps app ASAP.

    I'm thinking about buying a 950XL since it's cheap right now but I'm wondering if the upcoming new Continuum will work on the 950XL?
