    It seems to have removed the option to use voice recorder to record calls.
    Update: they released an update to Voice Recorder, and the issue is fixed.

    Something else that seems oddly broken, trying to post text on Facebook is madness, you get no spaces, repeated words, joined words, unexpected upper case characters half way through words... Bizarre.

    However, I don';t have any issues with the camera thus far, at least not with it taking thumbnail sized pictures. Pictures are still around 5MB for me.

    There were problems downloading some updates, but we'll try again later. If you keep seeing this, try searching the web or contacting support for help. This error code might help: (0x80070057)

    This build has fixed the lock screen opening delay and the dim display issues. 950 XL DS. I hope it stays fixed in future builds. it was a real drag having to wait 2 or 3 rings to answer the phone

    Have had battery issues on my 950 after several builds, and have found a fix that works for me. Try shutting down completely and removing the battery. After replacing the battery and restarting it , battery drain is back to normal. Don't know why, but this works every time for me.

    I personally like this build. I havent noticed any issues with any apps and the phone itself is running smoothly. The only issue I have now is I'm still not getting SMS messages on my PC when they come in to my phone. 950 XL DS US.

    So this battery problem keeps happening?

    i posted this in the 14955 thread prior to this thread being started, so i will post here as well. sorry for duplicates.

    Is anyone successfully using the YouMail VVM app, ISeeVM, on this build? i just upgraded from the preview release ring, and now the app launches, shows the splash screen for a few seconds and then closes. I've uninstalled/reinstalled, but no change.

    thanx.

    I jumped to the fast ring after months and the first thing I noticed was how much faster Windows Hello is, now on the 950XL. The 1-2 second lag between pressing the power button and Windows hello coming on is completely gone.

    I had to roll back due to a keyboard bug, but this has been a sore point for ages, good thing it will be fixed when RS2 releases next year.

    Must say I'm very impressed with this build on my 950XL DS. Only issue I have had so far is the Cortana "I can't connect to the Internet right now" bug. Signing out of and back into my MSA on Cortana fixed it (at least for now). Performance and battery life both excellent.

    Tap in

    Like an *****, I downloaded this update while on a project out of town.

    Entire process start to finish = 1 hour
    Problems encountered during download = 0
    Initial impression = BOY, DID I GET LUCKY! So far, everything is working faster and better. I will however keep an eye on the battery consumption for the next couple of days, while the phone (950XL, US, DS) goes through its update ritual of above battery usage period.

    May be an *****, but a happy *****, so far :>)

    Using this area to test the keyboard swipe text entry, seems to work great!

    Used 14595 all day and night , and it worked well for me:) battery life was not an issue, and the tasks I did use (which were just the basics: Cortana, text, Bluetooth, IseeIV, Outlook), worked great.

    What is still broken (for me at least) is when sharing pictures from the photo app via Outlook, most of the time, the email received by the recipient has no attachment despite it being correctly attached when the email was composed. This has been ongoing for a long time. At work, I now use a Lumia 925 with 8.1 specifically for this purpose, I cannot rely on my 950 at all for this, even the anniversary update had similar issues, so much so, that I jumped back into the fast ring (couldn't be any worse, and it isn't), but this particular issue is still present.

    Also, approaching the problem from another angle i.e. composing an email and then trying to insert a picture doesn't work either, 9 out of 10 times, when I choose "Insert", the Picture option is greyed out, however the File option isn't, but attaching it as a file results in the same issue as before, the email with attachment sends normally but most of the time the attached image is not present when the recipient receives it.

    The L925 I now use at work for these tasks has been flawless in this respect.

    Just tested this a couple of times on my 950XL DS using the procedure you describe (starting in photo app and sharing via Outlook Mail). Photo sent and was received no problem.

    I've seen this issue on my 950 XL DS US, when sharing via email from the photo app, the email comes through with no attachment. It's an intermittent issue for me.

    I was beginning to wonder if it was just me, it somehow feels a bit better knowing I'm not the only one. Thanks Mark

    Ditto that.

    Grrr, been stuck at 52% for a loooong time.

    Edit: Now getting a message saying "some updates were cancelled". Does this mean MS cancelled the update or that my phone cancelled the update?

    Update came through in the end after a reboot. A few issues to do with unlocking the phone, and a camera issue where pressing the camera button activates the camera app but the screen stays off, so you basically think it didn't do anything when you pressed the camera button, but when you press it again to try again, you hear it take a picture.

    Thanks Microsoft, all my call history is gone today, nothing to do with the latest insider build as such, but annoying that they feel they can update the phone app in the background with no warning and wipe all the call history.

    Anniversary update is buggy, you're not really any worse off with the current release preview, not any better off either though...
