    This update doesn't fix anything for my Lumia 630 DS. The two issues that I am still unable to find solutions for:-
    • When I connect to PC, my Device is unrecognized. Have tried everything from restarting while connected to soft/hard reset etc
    • Brightness doesn't change. I have tried from all setting options to change the brightness, but it just doesn't change
    • The mobile charging speed has reduced significantly. Using the mobile charger, it takes forever to complete charging while it continues to display notification about the device is charging slowly.

    I am still unable to find whether this issue is with my mobile or with the OS. But on Windows 8.1, the brightness setting and the USB detection on PC used to work fine. But on Windows 10 Mobile, both these things doesn't work.

    on Lumia 950 .63 with newest firmware.

    Everything seems stable and a little more responsive, but only in OS itself, not in Apps, etc. and Phone make less heat.

    When multi-tasking, getting shutters, hangs, and so on, specially when browsing Internet, it is strange, you should not have any performance problems, when you have 3GB of RAM and Hexa-Core processor, have no issues with Lumia 830 on W10M , even 630 on WP8.1.

    Battery, on stand-by is very good, but browsing Internet, no matter, Edge, UC Browser, Baconit, YouTube, it literally sucks battery in seconds. From 100% to 60% battery in only not even full 2 hours, with Battery Saving on and Brightness 25%. and nothing else in background.

    Is it possible that installing firmware first, and only then updating from .11 to .36 and now to .63 could caused any problems?

    Well now that is the question, isn't it?

    On my 640XL (4G DS), the new update seems smoother and more fluid. And as some have pointed out some quirks leftover from the .36 version seem to be smoothened out.

    Today, however, I had an excellent opportunity to test the battery life.

    I took the phone off the charger around 9:00AM. At 12:30AM, the battery level is down to 50%. But my usage has been very minimal. Two quick calls and less than 10 mins of Telegram chatting. Thats it!

    Not very good then, I think.

    Battery on my 830 I would say is about the same as my Samsung S6, maby a little bit better. Unplugged yesterday at around 10:00 Am and today at 7:00 Pm it turns off by itself. Yesterday evening I used it hard with we browsing and tapatalk. Tomorrow i will use it at work for the first time, that will be interesting to see.

    Will stay out of W10M for a while if this is the case, my 2 main issues for staying out are (1) battery life and (2) photography/ camera related bugs, but I can live with the other bugs.

    I can't complain for battery life. I took my L640 off the charger yesterday morning, and have been using it off and on for the last two days. I'm now down to 64% charge remaining. I have most apps disabled for background usage other than Phone, Glance Screen, Groove Music, MSN Weather, Mail and Calendar, and Messaging and Skype (not logged into Skype). The phone is estimating I have another 2 days and 5 hours of battery left.

    Absolutely, its a shame but I just can't see giving up what I have with my 1520 on WP 8.1 (practically 2 days of normal use out of a full charge) to barely or not getting through the day with W10.. I'll stay with 8.1 until MS gets a handle on wtf is causing such battery drain with W10!! I did .29 & .36 on my 640XL and saw first hand the difference.

    +1 Here. I'm not in a hurry to upgrade to W10M. Will sit it out until it addresses the battery drain (and camera/photography related bugs).

    You can try moving Gestures & Touch from your SD card to your device memory. I have the same problem before, was solved when I moved the Touch app to my device memory, restarted the phone then downloaded updates from the Store.

    Yep, I have that issue with my 1020. No issues on 8.1 but since upgrading to 10 I can hardly hear the person talking even at full volume.

    Sadly I have little faith it will happen, battery life took a big hit on my Surface Pro 3 when I updated to Win 10 last summer and MS hasn't come out with any improvements and doesn't look like they're even looking at addressing the issue..

    Hello over here...!

    I was a Lumia 1020 owner until its USB connector stopped working. Firstly the computer didn't seem to want to detect it when connected, secondly I became unable to charge it. As it was outside the warranty terms, I committed the enormous mistake of carrying it to an un-official technical service store... where they became it unusable. And they haven't wanted to take the responsibility.

    Anyway... After a huge bulge of comings and goings that includes a couple of official Nokia stores, finally it resulted on being unfixable and I had to buy another 1020.

    I had enrolled Windows Insider, then installed the .29 and .36 builds of Windows 10, and this morning I've received the upgrade to .63 version. The change that I've seen and that want to comment here is that they've fixed the Speech packages and Keyboard packages download.

    The way to get them is the same as commented here in other threads for previous builds of Windows 10 and the same as on Windows 8: go to Settings, then Region, then Speech, then add the desired one, then go back to Region, then go back to main Settings screen; then go to Updates and Security, go to Update the phone and vil, this time you DO find the upgrade ready for install (as valid for Speech as for Keyboard packages).

    This build is really bad for lower end Lumia's. Constant freezing,reboot,long loading screen. After a year of development, this is getting frustrating even for testers like me. But I'll keep supporting Microsoft anyways. Go team Microsoft!

    Today I used my 830 at work, one Exchange mail and one Gmail syncing with push. I think I was talking about 1,5 hours. I got a lot of mail and respond to many of them throw my phone. Not so much web and forum checking but some. I took it of my charger at 06:00 am and now at 06:00 pm it's about 65% left. It's better than my Samsung S6. I really happy with it's performance

    I'm also facing the same issue on Lumia 640. I'm still not sure whether it is Software or Hardware related. I've tried other chargers as well but same problem.
    Any solutions you came across for this issue?

    I also have a l930, I am running the latest 10 build on fast insider. It runs very well, and I use mine all day, business and pleasure.

    I'd say download the insider build, then fully reset the phone, set-up as New phone not from a back up, then reinstall windows insider again, select fast insider, then update to the latest build. Probably overkill but my 930 runs excellent with great battery life now to.

    Everything works perfectly, as per 8.1

    Worth getting from your backup, if you come up against problems, then just do a restore I guess.

    My 920 has it already..... Most likely due to 100's of millions of Windows phone out there so Microsoft have to push it out in phases...

    You can install it to your phone memory from here. After installing reboot and check for updates from the Store. That should bring you to the latest version.
