    Hi
    I am using Nokia Lumia 930 Win 8.1 now. If I update to Win Mo 10, do
    a) lose my pics, vids, etc? In other words, do I get my phone as a CLEAN slate?
    b) can I have live wallpaper in Win Mo 10?
    c) Any known bugs in Win Mo 10 for my 930?
    Thanks.

    a) if you upgrade no, you won't lose pics and vids (etc is open to interpretation) - Although it is advisable to perform a backup before upgrading.
    To get a 'CLEAN' slate you would have to hard reset after upgrading.
    b) Unsure of this
    c) If you read the forums people have experienced bugs, especially with the microphones on the Lumia 930.
    Myself, on my Lumia 930 I find it very stable on the latest (and official) .164 build. I have no real issues and the microphone problem I haven't tested as I don't record videos or audio on my phone.

    no, you wont lose anything :)


    b) can I have live wallpaper in Win Mo 10?
    no but there are 3rd party apps that can make it happen :)


    c) Any known bugs in Win Mo 10 for my 930?
    yes there are inevitable bugs at first after upgrading. the best way to face less bugs and a better experience is to hard reset the device after upgrading :)

    Just as an add-on to this statement, I did find a hard reset necessary on earlier preview builds, but I have not had to on the last few builds.
    My advice would be to upgrade and only hard reset if you have any issues.

    nly hard reset if you have any issues.
    why not take a precautionary step and hard reset first thing after upgrade, many users have reported and i have too experienced better performance and battery backup after reset :)

    Like I said in my post, I've tried quite a few preview builds now and the last few haven't required a hard reset, as I haven't noticed any issues.
    It's user preference, but in my opinion not always necessary.

    On a Lumia 930?
    From my experience in running the preview builds on different spec phones (low end and higher end), I only benefited with a hard reset on earlier preview builds and the last few releases haven't required it.
    Also, in my opinion users have got into the habit of doing a hard reset, because of problems seen when the Win10M preview builds were first released (which were very buggy).
    However the latest releases have been very stable (again in my opinion).

    Did an upgrade, no data lost. Start screen was restored as it was. I had some issues like some system apps not showing name and icons correctly and also in notifications menu. So decided to do a full HR :)

    Sorry, you are one of the most helpful people on this forum, so I apologise if I ranted at you.
    And a hard reset is a perfectly reasonable suggestion for users after upgrading to Win10M.

    I would second this advice as I've had the same experience. Why go through it pre-emptively if it runs fine?

    Edit: I see I'm too late. :)
