    I've been using wp10 tp since two months now. And the fact that I did notice is that the UI is gradually converting into android. WP8.1 had an awesome UI and I wanted that same UI to be in 10. But everytime I use my phone,I feel like using an android device. I wish the final build will change this!
    Some of the "androidy" looks.... round contacts, aeroplane sign in place of send button, hamburger menu, looks of app start page, dialer, mail app, music app and playback, files app (this is the only android feel i want it to stay), etc.
    This isn't Android trust me its still very closed up. I think what you meant to say is that it's looking more and more like windows 10 on PC ;)

    Hey you're using incomplete OS
    PPlease realize that they isn't start optimized it yet.

    I think iit's still on adding features stages so stop using it.
    I recall almost the exact same thing being said about the desktop OS and tablet mode, "its just a preview", look how that turned out.....

    It's just a preview, it's incomplete, it's a beta, it will fixed later, send in feedback, wait for Windows 10.1 whatever etc.

    Remember when 8.1 came out and it just worked?

    One thing to keep in mind is Microsofts efforts to lure developers over to windows by making dev tools to allow existing iOS and Android developers to quickly port their existing apps over to windows 10 and windows 10 mobile. Microsoft is probably trying to ensure that the user experience of the android and iOS apps don't feel too out of place on windows.

    Search for a folder in file explorer such as Documents and go into it. You'll notice the location at the top changes to MainOS (C:) which you can use to access system files.

    To get to the Android stuff I just searched for Android in MainOS (C:.)

    Open the File Explorer app, then search for some file that's on your phone memory, for example, search for img0. Then press and hold that file, go to properties, and on the top you'll see it's under MainOS (C:) \ ... Then just click MainOS (C:).

    yeah yeah I get what some of you mean by "this is not the final build but just a developing stage". Hello? think nicely, would they change everything that they have put their hard works on for, after "this" longtime? now, the only way is to compromise and try to forget what WP8.1 was like. #WP8.1WasTheBestWindowsOSEver
    Update: I'm back on 8.1 and not going back until I hear awesome reviews!

    Not only Androidy it's pure ugly.. Non premium looking.. Specially in dark theme.. All the gray backgrounds and accent colors look cheap.. I hate W10M.. For me WP 8 was a great looking OS, they should have just added features to it.. Even the start screen of W10M looks ugly.. Font, action center, notifications everything gray completely cheap garbage..

    To tell MS that their OS is looking like a wannabe version of Android. They did remove the hamburger menu in the photos app though so maybe they're getting the hint.
    No, stop that, Microsoft didn't just suddenly decide to remove the hamburger menu, they have shown mockups way early in the tp showing what they envisioned for the photos app, and guess what? it looked VERY similar to the new ui of the photos app, ms didn't just decide to change it, its something they were working on for a long time, I'm willing to bet most of the apps are the same way right now.

    Why should I, when I like dark theme and enjoy using it on WP 8 and 8.1?? What they gained by messing up the dark theme?? Why they want to take away options?? Why they are killing the once beautiful OS??

    The latest build of WP10 is very stylish but not easy to use. The keyboards are so small, my average sized fingers are typing the wrong keys more than the right ones. It's a very frustrating phone after WP8 & 8.1.

    Have you guys all forgotten that Microsoft does not have infinite resources and that they're building two entire operating systems from the ground up? Yes they do use a lot of the same code but when you get down to it Windows 10 and Windows 10 Mobile are fundamentally different. And it's HARD to build an entire operating system. It'll never be perfect at launch, just like Windows 10 is NOT perfect right now. It'll take a few updates probably before it's truly what Microsoft wants it to be. If they waited until the operating system was perfect then they'd never release it and by the time they did fart it out cars would be flying and Apple would be releasing a new holographic smartphone the size of an M&M.

    I know it's hard, but in all honesty if you can't deliver a well polished product then.....

    I am with the OP, also think this OS is shaping up to being the opposite of what wp started as. From simple and fast to slow and bloated.
