    Like the topic says. It's gone haywire, random restarts, automatic brightness doesn't work, keyboard doesn't appear, battery drains like crazy, I charge phone 2 times a day now!! It's slow, whenever I unlock the phone the screen doesn't turn on immediately(only after like 5 seconds) and the same happens with calls, I don't know who's calling me because the screen doesn't turn on. It's just a huge mess. I could do a hard reset without restoring but going through getting all the apps again etc... Don't want to do that.

    Sincerely:
    Do a hard reset with backup, but stay far waway Insider Rings. As name says, that's testing purpose. Hard reset with Windows Device Recovery Tool, and take the official build . which works great on your device especially after last firmware update.
    Consider you'll get your device full operative automatically in one morning using wifi (it will download automatically your apps)

    Yeah, I did that and now I lost my start screen, no apps are downloading just showing 'pending'. Ugh, Windows 10!!!! Come on! I'm not new user, I'm already using windows for many years on my phone and it's just making life harder for me...

    Patience is key. Pending will change to downloading and the features you are dying to have will be released to the general public next year. You are the general public, not a developer who is using Insider on a test device. Read the terms and conditions, please.

    Yeah, but I've been on Insider programme for years now and this is the FIRST time that I've gone through such trouble.

    If you restore a backup from a newer insider build (RS2) onto an official build, the start screen will not work. I experienced the same with my Lumia 950. A hard reset without restore fixed the problem. Also I'm running the insider build again but had to do another hard reset to make it stable. . What I do is take a screen shot of my start screen to use for reference when I set it up again and then go to "My Library" in the Store and download all my apps again. My contacts and text messages still come back when I connect my Microsoft account. It's just the nature of running insider builds. Not really a big deal for me as I've done it many times before, both on my phone and my computer. As others stated, stick with the official build if you have a problem with it.

    are you a fast ring insider or release preview?

    New builds of fast ring and highly experimental and bugged because of the early developmental stage. Its normal to face new bugs which are not logged by Microsoft. If you are very dis-satisfied you can roll back using WDRT :)

    fast insider (if that is what you've chosen) is always a risk - there have been serious bugs in the fast ring before like the one in 14926 where you couldn't enter the lock screen pin

    After the MSG update my phone went from frustrating to ZERO bugs or glitches, extra camera features and a lot faster, apps download over data connection in no time at all, very pleased now following the latest update. Lumia-950

    After recent changes in recent builds, Glance Screen no longer works with Battery Saver, question is, is there a way to make Glance Screen work with Battery Saver? Glance Screen does not seem to be in background tasks, to change it to always work...

    Glance screen does indeed work on my 950 with battery saver ON.
    glance screen settings are now in PERSONALISATION and not in EXTRAS.

    What the... with Battery Saver on, in Glance Screen settings it is instantly off, and when I switch it on, leave it, enter again and it is off again, the moment I turn off Battery Saver it is ON. By the way, on what build you are?

    Then you do not have these changes yet, it is only on recent Fast insider builds.

    Insider builds, normally plagued with issues, (like the one your experiencing), why put yourself in that position? My experience is that Microsoft uses the forums to fix issues etc, I was in this position during windows 8 and 8.1, having to revert to the forums for an answer due to early build/beta testing, I realised I was nothing more than a Guinea pig helping Microsoft iron out their operating system issues. Never again.

    I do know what Insider builds are and what to expect from them.
    The thing is that "(like the one you are experiencing)" is not a bug, well most likely, because it is that way for like a three Insider builds in a row, well since redstone anniversary update, can't remember which branch actually. So, it is most likely a new change, that makes Glance Screen turn off with Battery Saver on, in this case, I would like if it would be a bug instead of a change, because I really don't like it.

    Both glance screen and battery saver are excellent features, would be a shame if they prevented glance with battery saver on, unless you have glance set to always on, it surely can't be using that much battery, having googled this issue its been a constant theme with insider builds (glance screen misbehaving) then successive builds have brought glance back into fully functioning.

    Glance on its own works perfectly fine, besides that, that it disables with Battery Saver on, I always have Glance set on 30sec. I do tend to use Battery Saver a lot, specially at night, and now as it is, it prevents Glance at night which is very important, at least to me.
