    I tried .36 on my 640 for a few days without a hard reset and had a lot of crashes and slow-loading/lagging apps (Edge was awful). I did a hard reset yesterday and it's so good now - haven't had a crash in the 36 hours since, and everything is faster and smooth.

    I set Windows Insider to slow ring and the next day had the update to .36.
    You can actually leave the Insider program on that phone, and will continue to get the updates that push out to the official Windows 10 models. I did that on a 640 and 635, and was not enrolled in the insider program for the upgrade to .36. Just an FYI.

    I took the plunge yesterday on my 640. Some miner small problems for one I dont get FB notifications on my tile it appears that it is not live as it doesn't flip. I will try a reinstall other then that not bad. Of Course the battery life is not as good but I expected that.

    It's good enough for me on my 640. Your mileage may vary.

    I was pleased enough to put it on my wife's 635, and she hasn't put me in the doghouse, so she must think it's okay as well.
    When I end up in the dog house both the wife and dog are mad at me LOL

    Not at all. No issues on my end here. It may also depend on the phone model as to whether or not there are issues, but the same issues are usually present in 8.1, as most are due to bugs in the firmware of the device. That's why the 950 and 950 XL are receiving firmware updates. It's why the 535 has issues with the proximity sensor.

    Do you think automatic reboot, device freezing, accent color flashing on lock screen, apps running in background even after suspension of the particular app, fast draining battery, longer reboot time etc not issues with latest .39 update?
    My device is having 1GB Ram.
    Let me tell you , these are not happening with wp8.1.

    If these are not a problem with w10 then why msft is not updating frimware of low end devices as well ? After all those are also msft loyal users

    Like I said, I don't have any of these issues with my device, except how background apps work has changed in Windows 10 Mobile to allow easier multi-tasking. Suspending an app only suspends it if the app behaves properly. Some apps need to be able to continue running so that tasks can be done, like downloading in the background, etc. Microsoft finally delivers the feature that is one of the top most requested features and you are calling it a bug.

    My battery doesn't drain any faster or last any longer. As far as the reboot times, I had tested that on .39 with 2 Lumia 635s, one on 8.1 and one on 10 .39, and there was barely a noticeable difference on that particular device.

    Microsoft isn't updating firmware on the older devices right now because they have already released updates for the firmware for all the older devices to address hardware bugs. Remember Cyan? Denim? Yeah, those are still firmware for those older devices that didn't come pre-installed except on a very few devices. As far as the 535, I expect a firmware update at some point, but it takes time and Microsoft is busy concentrating on those devices that are already officially on 10.

    I am in no way stating that there are no bugs in the OS, but it isn't something that is affecting every device and Microsoft is working on it and releasing regular updates. Some of the bugs you mentioned could also have to do with software drivers for the hardware that the OS needs to access. Another reason why it will affect one device, but not another.

    Problems with a phone freezing up when other phones of the same model are not freezing up could also be an indication of a possible hardware fault in the system.

    Thus, from your point of view, it's all about mistakes of a single phone. And I don't think that an app which has already been suspended by end user still running in the background and when opening again, started from start over is not a bug. May be I'm wrong but those other thousands of insiders who are using this preview can't be proved wrong.

    Yeah, that's an API issue with the app in question. There are quite a few apps like that, and they need to be fixed/updated. Just because an app behaves badly, doesn't mean it's the fault of the OS.

    I agree. I have been using Windows 10 Mobile on my Lumia 630 DS and it's not yet reached the Windows 8.1 stability and battery life levels. Not sure it is because of my mobile's hardware limitations or of the OS's but the experience is certainly not that great and I would not recommend it to anyone at this moment. But I hope that in near future, the OS will stabilize further and be more ready for everyone not just the Windows enthusiasts and testers.

    I too unenrolled from the technical preview on my L640XL on build .29 only to be greeted with an update issue notification saying I was low on space for my update to .36....

    For me running a Lumia 640 I have very few issues I like the look of Windows 10 even my son who saw it today likes it and he one of those fruity type phones. Having said that I am on the slow ring not sure if the OS is ready for the big release but I am happy.

    I'm enjoying my 640 on 8.1 and have been ever so tempted to take the leap after reading so many positive things from other 640 owners but I just can't shake the fact that Microsoft pushed back the release for some particular reason. After getting a little singed from updating my laptop to W10 in July and not receiving fixes for basic functions until the November release; I feel that if MS actually recognize that W10m isn't ready for prime time, I'm inclined to believe them.

    Of course it requires another one or two major updates just to improve stability of the current OS . At least, first of all msft should workaround to improve the basic level of the os then after they should think to add new features. Without establishing os, features are just useless

    Alternatively, you can mail your phone to me @Akkaler and I will post a video of your phone running perfectly. Then I can send it back to you. lol

    Made the jump twice with my 920 and rolled back both times, beacause of different issues. Waiting for better builds, what we have now seems not yet ready for me. :)

    "I upgraded my Icon to .29 two days ago. Found the instructions in another post on this website and it was easy peasy"

    can you provide a link to these instructions?

    Here is what I did:
    1. Took screenshots of my start screen so I would know which apps I had pinned and how they were arranged.
    2. Did the same for the All Apps list, so I would remember which apps I had installed. (My screenshots upload to onedrive). You will be wiping your phone and NOT restoring from a backup, so it's best to have a guide for when you are setting your phone up after the update.
    3. Hard reset your phone, sign in and install ONLY the Windows Insider app from the store. Choose Fast Ring, install WM10 and then hard reset again.
    4. Sign in and using your saved screenshots as a guide, reinstall your apps from the store. Do not restore from a backup or you will have issues.

    I also reinstalled the Windows Insider app and set it to slow ring so I will continue to get new builds. I received the update to .36 the next day. There is a learning curve with WM10 and admittedly the battery life is not as good as 8.1, but there are many posts on this forum that can help you work through any issues you may encounter. Just search for what you are having issues with.
