    Intermittent no wifi, no Wallet, the wifi is a deal breaker for me.
    I do not use wallet, I don't even really know what to use it for either.

    But WiFi, as far as I can tell it only happens on some routers. I go to some of my friends houses and WiFi craps out every 10 minutes, but at mine its never been a problem at all. I also only use 5GHz at home, 2.4 GHz is full of Bell routers. Would using only 5GHz possibly help?

    I rarely have wifi problems. Never at home, and very occasionally with trashy hotel routers and such. Wifi connectivity with my Lumia is actually better than with the iPad.

    I had this too and I found the reason:
    SNIP.
    Sorry about the double post, I couldn't figure out how to multiquote in a single post. I tried and it just ate the first draft of this.

    All the apps that pending thing happened to were on internal storage and one of them was MyTube which does not install on a sd card. Sd card apps were fine. It was just one internal app got corrupted or something and had to be reinstalled.

    It hasn't happened again, but I'm also manually restarting my phone more to avoid hard locks so maybe its because of that locking issue.

    I have the same problem, meaning the wifi is sometimes just fine, and other times it's terrible, resetting every 10-20 minutes. The problem is intermittent, so hard to figure out.

    Maybe it is the 2.4GHz vs.5GHz, I really don't know that much about wifi frequencies.

    I just had this happen to me a couple times.

    When listening to music over headphones, I unplugged the cable to go do something and when I plugged the headphones back in and tried to play music again it refused to play anything and I had to restart the phone. However before i restarted the phone audio worked without headphones plugged in. I tried to recreate it with everything I knew I had opened, but it didn't work. Has this happened to anyone else?

    Yesterday I hit power to unlock, but then without unlocking I pressed the camera button instead, to take a picture. The picture came out OK, but 20 seconds later the phone rebooted. Pretty scary that such bugs still happen on the Slow Ring.

    As an aside, it would be nice if this thread could be made sticky ..

    Another day, another failed shutdown. Again my 950XL got stuck on 'Goodbye' for minutes. Anyone else getting this?

    [thanks for the sticky, whoever finally did it!]

    Just a FYI that might prevent someone some grief.

    I had an installed app on internal storage go pending again and since it was the weekend, I decided to wait to see if it fixes itself.c Last night it did fix itself and broke everything else.

    Once I enter an app, navigation bar stops working, power button stops working. This happens on all apps that open, some can't get through the loading screen, and it still happens even after I uninstalled that app. So if that happens, uninstall immediately, it'll save you some grief.

    Well, something's not right with the camera app and/or this build on the 950XL. Yesterday I took two pictures and put my phone in my pocket. A bit later I noticed the hot-pocket effect, took out the burning hot phone which had the screen on, saying 'your device rebooted' or something. How on earth does a camera app/photos app cause an entire device reboot? On the 'slow ring' no less..

    How is Groove and battery life on the latest Slow ring build? I left the Insider program a while back (now on Production) but, I am thinking about rejoining but I need Groove to work to play my music from my SD card and decent battery life too. I get both of these with the Production build so will I get the same from the Slow ring?

    I don't know about Groove, but battery life on my L650 is definitely better than it was on Production ring! True, I'm not using my phone that heavy, but still, I'm running 3rd day and 20% is still remaining.

    EDIT: Actually, I'm now looking at the battery stats and I had 41% battery before I went to sleep and after exactly 8 hours it dropped to 39%, which means 0.25%/h of battery usage. That surely is my new record, cause previously on production builds I averaged ~0.7%/h while not using phone. (Yes, I always have battery saver turn on right from 100%)

    OTOH, I have a problem with Glance screen. It's just not working at all while battery saver is activated. When deactivated, everything is back normal. Can anybody please confirm this? If so, I will appreciate your vote on Feedback Hub, I already reported this bug, here's the link: https://aka.ms/Riqc48

    Well, the way it behaves is buggy - you enter the "Glance screen" settings > turn the main switch on (additional settings should show up, but they will not) > you go back to previous page (personalization) > again you enter glance settings > miraculously the switch is in off position by itself.

    Battery saver has no effect on performance, it only blocks background tasks. Then in Battery settings you can manage app exceptions to this rule.
