    Windows 10 Mobile build 15207 now available for Insiders with one new fix | Windows Central

    with one additional fix we would like extra coverage on from Insiders:

    • We have added a privacy page to the Windows 10 Mobile OOBE and upgrade experiences that allows you to quickly and effectively make common privacy changes while setting up the device. However, Insiders have reported that their device would crash or reboot shortly after unlocking their device for the first time after the upgrade if their device did not have a password configured to unlock the device. After updating to Build 15207, you will see this privacy page one more time – but should no longer experience a crash or reboot.


    Thanks to the Insiders who reported this issue and helping us fix issues quickly like this one!

    This build and version is the latest Redstone 3 build in testing for Mobile Insiders on the Fast Ring.

    Issues? Bugs? Solutions? For all things build 15207, discuss it here.

    [NOTE]Tip: Check out this thread before posting
    http://forums.windowscentral.com/win...ml#post3467172[/NOTE]
    Is your device behaving oddly, is something just not right? This is the place for discussion of software and hardware issues!
    [TIP]Here is some useful information you may find yourself needing.
    Some issues with responsiveness and app delays can be resolved by either restarting your phone or performing a Soft Reset.

    If things get a bit more serious, you may opt to perform a hard reset or software reset.

    Lastly, if things really get serious, you may need the Windows Device Recovery Tool to recover your phone back to working order - head over to the Microsoft FAQ Page for more information.

    Make sure you check the official Windows 10 Mobile Support Page as well for some of the most common tips and trouble shooting guides.[/TIP]
    [INFO]Restarting your phone involves turning it off and then turning it on again. Turn off your phone by pressing the power button until you are prompted to "Slide down to power off". Turn your phone on again by pressing the power button until it vibrates.

    A soft reset is similar to pressing the reset button in PCs and has the same effect as pulling out the battery of your phone and then putting it back in. For phones with non-removable batteries, press the volume down and power button together until your phone restarts. Be aware that when using Windows 10, the voume down and power button combination will also launch Windows Feedback. Just continue to hold down the buttons for a full 10 seconds in order to trigger the soft reset. For phones with removable batteries, you can either opt for the button combination or remove the battery and then return it.

    A hard reset or a software reset will reformat your phone by removing all the user information leaving only the bare OS and firmware currently installed in your phone. It does erase data so you should always keep a good backup of your phone just in case you have to resort to this option.

    The software reset can be done by going to your phone Settings > System > About > tap on "Reset your phone." You will be prompted once before doing this just to be sure. Be sure, also, to have everything backed up since there would be no way to recover all of your files.

    The hard reset accomplishes the same thing as the software reset, but can be accomplished when the phone is non-responsive and you are unable to enter into settings. To perform the Hard Reset, "Power off the phone > hold Volume Down > press Power > keep holding Volume Down until you see the exclamation (!) screen, then immediately release the Volume Down. Now tap Volume Up / Volume Down / Power / Volume Down. You should see the spinning gears and your phone will reflash the last OS version held in recovery.

    The Windows Device Recovery Tool is the final option, for example for "bricked" phones that would no longer turn on, be charged, etc. This can be used to either roll back to a previous OS version or force an update to a more current OS version[/INFO]
    Remember, when reporting bugs be descriptive! The more information you give, the better the chance someone will be able to help you.

    What OS version? Any special conditions that should be noted? What were you doing? What is the result? Any error codes or messages given? What have you tried for solutions? What variant of the phone are you using? Single SIM or Dual SIM?

    Please describe as much as possible about the bug so others may try and replicate the bug and don't make suggestions for solutions that you have already tried which have failed.
    [INFO]When reporting bugs/issues, please also use the Windows Feedback app to report issues directly to Microsoft. Microsoft don't actively read forums looking for people reporting issues when they have a data collection system built right into the operating system. They use WF to analyse numbers and prioritise fixes (issues with more reports, get sorted quicker).

    "You can use the Windows Feedback app to tell us which features you love about your Lumia with Windows 10, or when something could be better.
    1.To launch the app, swipe over to the App list, and then select Windows Feedback.
    2.See if someone else has given similar feedback by entering the topic, such as Microsoft OneDrive.
    3.If you find similar feedback, tap the Upvote or tap on the feedback to open it, write the problem details to Add details-field and tap Send.
    4.To narrow your search to a specific topic, you can filter the results by picking the category that matches your feedback the closest. For example, for feedback about the Microsoft OneDrive, select Apps and Games > OneDrive.
    5.If you don’t find any similar feedback, tap + to add new feedback. Select the correct category and subcategory from the dropdown-list.
    6.Enter your feedback (the more details the better!), add a screenshot if you can, and tap Send.
    7.Your feedback will automatically upload when you are charging your phone and connected to Wi-Fi, but you can also upload the feedback manually by tapping … > Upload feedback data."

    Update to 15207 went smoothly using hotel wi-fi.

    Got the screen with the new privacy settings. No issues after unlock.

    So far, so good.

    Just installed 5min ago... battery life is amazing!! LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL.

    Not sure what to think of this release. They couldn't put a single bug fix in it? This screen seems to only be to appease the EU, but why bother with less than 1% share and only 13 phones left that officially get it. SO confused.

    Why laughing out loud?
    13 is 12 more than 1 and 13 models more than zero.
    Logic, if you think about it, would tell you that there is a reason.

    Use what you like or be part of the problem.

    Didn't bother, since I have the prior release on my 950xl and X3. Didn't get any issues with the privacy screen.

    Hope you are serious about the battery life. I am very happy with the battery life using the last build. I would hate to seeing a step back. Downloading now, DS 950XL.

    Installed without issue. Initial battery drain while everything sync'd up, now back to normal which on my HP Elite X3 has been amazing!

    Was being sarcastic, copying the typical battery comments that come way too soon after a build release. I've noticed nothing different with my x3 though. Which is good. Can't expect exponential battery gains. Of course with the 950XL it was always bad, regardless of build. X3 goes the whole day VS having to plug in whenever I could.

    If 207 is a mildly tweaked 205, battery life should be pretty good. I did notice 205's battery life has been better. However, the auto screen brightness seems to be dysfunctional in a dark room or at night when the phone is powered on. Rotation lock was also dysfunctional, but seems to work correctly today. Maybe that's because my phone updated to 207. Didn't realize that. Excellent. Hmm, maybe I can try the auto bright setting again...

    I poasted feedback on Saturday for the brightness issue.

    I was seeing multiday use with the previous build. Prior to that build, I did have to charge a little during the day and I would find the phone running warm. So far today, with 15207, I am seeing a little more battery usage. So much for we did not change anything. DS 950XL.

    Cortana and Band 2 is still broken, as for the past few releases, and stuck on "Thinking" ...

    The jump to 207 turned my reminders to go home back on again, they were missing for a while. Otherwise, nothing much is different. I still cannot use voice directions with my Sync system in my Escape. It works with other Bluetooth devices, just not my vehicle.

    I'm not on fast ring. But my band 2 has worked with all the updates on preview. If you are in English US, you can add English UK or Canada and that might work.

    Still seeing a very old recurring issue where the phone will not always reconnect to WiFi when it wakes up. Will they ever get it right? Don't answer that ;)

    I'll second that. I lt will connect bit may not reconnect if I turn off the car and return.

    It also has frozen twice while sending messages while connected to BT.

    So far no issues with this build.on my HP Elite X3.
    Except the HP issue of SD card disconnects. Still working with them on that. They are trying to put the blame on rs2 now...

    Lumia 950. Haven't had update problems for many versions ago.

    However, Photos, which has always been something of an "under construction" mess, and its development seem to have been handed over to the "1 Hour Photo" group! Getting everything uploaded to OneDrive, doing sync stuff and more (presumable) takes precedent over Photos actually making images available to view on the phone, as in up to an hour or so wait! And, STILL, something as basic, and abjectly sensible, as renaming photos in Photos is non-existent.

    MS seems to be reinventing the wheel with Photos, and wanting to be clever, decided to make it square and now is figuring out how to make it roll.

    Yes, I've noticed photos taking much longer to show up now too. It was working fine with 15205. I just don't understand how problems like this keep getting fixed and then come back again (I'm looking at you, Flashlight).
