    Hi, just want to ask if the insider preview of Windows 10 Mobile is already good enough to serve as my daily driver.

    Thanks.

    I'm having no issues, myself. It gets better and better every build. Smoother, more stable, and better battery life. I still have graphical and UI glitches and it's hardly perfect but I'm happy using it as my daily driver. Just don't expect all sunshine and rainbows. I had a random reboot today. I hadn't had one for weeks before that but it's still worth pointing out that it happened recently. There are still occasional hangs and freezes, and there are still unfixed bugs. I think you'll be find giving it a try but I suggest doing a hard reset after you install the latest build.
    Again, I'm happy and I've been using it for months on my Lumia 830 (and I had it on a Lumia 520 for a long time before a touch screen defect forced me to retire the phone). It's not perfect, but in my opinion it's worth the upgrade. I have a Lumia 640 with Windows Phone 8.1 and it just feels outdated now.

    It might be.

    Do you have a backup phone, just in case something goes wonky? That's always a good idea.

    Release Ring is pretty safe and stable right now.

    Are you prepared to do a reset on the phone and not restore backup? Most users report this gives the best experience when moving between phones and moving between versions.

    This guy right here is also correct. Release Preview Ring is the most stable option right now, and it's always best to have a backup phone just in case. If you're on AT&T, you can always pick up a Lumia 640 for cheap. Also, hard resets have dramatically improved performance and reliability for quite a few people.
