    Since 15208 I've experienced my 640 freezing for up to 30 secs at a time several times per day. Edge has gone completely batty, reloading pages and spontaneously closing. Things had gotten pretty smooth up until now.

    I think I'm finally done. Going to run by Best Buy at lunch and pick up a cheapo android like I got my wife last month and give it a try. I'm tired of stuff just not working.
    You're on the Fast Ring, what do you expect? This is definitely not the place to go if you want things to be stable. You clearly need to stay on the Release Preview or Production rings.

    The latest builds have been pretty stable on my 950, but I've not really noticed any minute differences as I've not been using that phone very much since my 950 XL got the CU.

    Any chance the camera performance improved? My that I mean the bad focus, and wiggling effect.
    Can you supply some samples?

    It says the device the feedback is for is not mobile, so upvoting is turned off for me (I'm only an insider for mobile).
    my bad! try: https://aka.ms/X8a8mt, if that doesn't work the heading is: Camera focus still not fixed as of build 15210

    FYI: I also updated all Camera Focus issues listed in feedback....but, the most current submission was dated 4mos ago, that is why I put the timestamp of build 15210 in the Title Line.

    They're neither. It's not RS2 or RS3, it's between them. Feature2 (F2).
    Not according to my contacts in Microsoft. It's rs2-feature 2. But the other poster is correct, it doesnt really matter.
    My main complaint on this build is battery life. I'm seeing much more consumption than previously. I'm also having intermittent keyboard popup issues in Edge again. Aside from the long standing HP issue of SD card disconnects, no other issues on this build. HP Elite X3 US.

    I will have to save a picture instead of deleting them all. Basically it just isn't in focus. The wiggling effect is seen on the screen as the phone tries to focus, but doesn't show on the pictures.

    Found it and upvoted.
    I did the same.

    Guys, I'm on production build of RS2 on my L950 XL, and I keep suffering from an issue I reported a few months back while on the Insider program.

    The problem is that the system becomes unresponsive when I'm tweaking what apps can be run in the background and what apps cannot. First, the system slows down to a crawl, and it eventually freezes the whole system, forcing me to do a soft reset. It took me almost an hour to complete the setup ☹

    Now, every now and then, when I go to the same setting page, I see apps appearing more than once or sometimes one app may get misconfigured, and I have to set it again.

    Can you guys tell me if this problem is being addressed with the new builds?
    Thank you 😊

    I downloaded this build yesterday and this morning noticed a very odd side effect. 2/3 of my apps are doubled in the "all apps" section, with one being the app and the other being a darkened version of the app that says "pending" under it. Anyone else have this weird issue?

    You going to Android because you are have stability issues on the Fast Ring?? You do know that you are running software that is not ready for the general public right? Why not try the Release ring and see if that makes things a little more stable?

    Other than the "all apps" issue that popped up on my 1520, I have seen some improvements on both my 1520 and 1320. Glance screen is no longer showing the wrong time on my 1320 and my 1520 seems to have better battery life so far.

    And as far as camera, my 1320 takes better pictures than it ever has, including on 8.1 and my 1520 has always taken great pics. But I am not much of a "picture person" to begin with.

    I have had two apps in 'All Apps' that display's this behavior, and has been doing so for about 3 builds now.

    2 apps I would be okay with, but I have a total of 163 of them! It's driving me crazy!!

    You don't need to buy another phone unless you want to. Just revert to the released Creators Update version of W10. For me anyway it works pretty well when I get tired of the constant flow of unaddressed bugs on insider releases. And I would hope that any remaining bugs would get worked out faster on a released branch?

    Even with release preview, there were too many things that just don't work right. Edge reloading pages constantly, Bluetooth only connecting in my car half of the time, no really usable FB app. I've put with it for 2 years now and I'm tired of it. I'm typing this on my new Android phone and I've yet to have a single problem with it.

    Granted, it's clunky and disjointed compared to WP, but everything works. I didn't want to leave, but Edge has bombed on me for the last time. The wasted potential of WP makes me very sad.

    I pretty much agree. With Android 7.x, Android (for me, anyway) arrived and works perfectly.... with terrific battery life. I keep playing around with Windows because in the big picture I think the concept of a single OS for all my devices makes sense. Plus, I had hopes that Windows would support older phones than Android does since there is far less hardware fragmentation.

    Unfortunately, Windows dropped support for one of my older phones long ago and I suspect my 950 is next..... so much for long term support. Too bad too, since the 950 ticks all my boxes (GREAT camera, wireless charging, SD card, good screen, replaceable battery). Like you, I was keeping up with all the insider releases and waiting for the OS to settle down into something reliable and usable. Sadly, that has not happened. Each new release seems to add inconsequential new functions and the really major stability / usability issues never seem to get addressed in spite of (sometimes) massive feedback. So I flip back and forth between my nice stable and usable Nexus 5X (with its freely upgradable and downgradable firmware) and the 950.

    Unless MS has something up their sleeve, it seems to me if the OS ever really settles down it will be after the ship has sunk. If it hasn't sunk already, that is.

    Being annoyed by the Edge problems which are perpetuating from build 14393 and on, I signed in for the fast ring two weeks ago. I run 15063.251 on a Lumia phone 640 and still didn't get any future fast ring builds so far. Am I doing something wrong?

    So far so good for my 950 xl ds. It's being smooth and very responsive.

    All is working well here. No double apps. Battery slightly better than before. Battery control of background usage of apps works very well (clearly better than in any Android) ...
