    Today we got an Update for our Mobile devices, which is .218, and i can see the Performance Improvements and some bug fixes, I'd say the Best build yet, no need afraid of updating, it's update-update not bug-update. Lumia 640 is what I'm using, It's really nice to use, so smooth, performance is really good. Please comment below for any noticed bug fixes, or any bugs and anything you want to share.

    I decided to drop out of the fast ring and roll back for this update. Redstone has some great things coming but this update has brought the OS to a point where all the features I want are there. I'll see how the stability and battery life go over the next few weeks.

    Hi all, I also updated my 640 xl to latest build 218 today morning. Earlier when on 8.1, SIM on my phone used to get derecognised once every two or three days. I am using single SIM only. At that time SIM settings were appearing greyed out in settings. Only solution was to restart the phone. This problem did not recur even after tree weeks after phone was updated to win 10 164 build. I felt very much relieved to notice this problem disappearing after update. However unfortunately this problem of network freezing again surfaced a few hours after updating to 218 build. I fear whether old problem has come back after updating to latest build. Can any one please guide me what to do. Thanks.

    Have you tried hard resetting your Phone? Hard Reset is always good, make sure you backed up your phone before reset.

    I don't understand it. I have 2 Lumia's a 640 and an old 520. I don't use the 520 anymore. I did perform an reset when I got the 640. It was on w10 M Still both phones got the .218. I thought 512 mb phones were pulled from windows 10 mobile

    Hard reset means a clean re-installing last downloaded build, NOT the fabric build.

    For reverting to fabric build (in your case the 8 cyan or 8.1 denim), you must use Windows Device Recovery Tool

    I didn't want 8.1 on the 520 back. after i began using the 640 the startscreen and the applist were full of black tiles because of apps installed on sd-card. So i resetted the Phone.

    Ok, I'm sorry, I cannot understand what's the matter... I put .218 on my backup 520 via Release Preview Ring normally.
    512 MB phone were pulled away the non insider OTA, not the insider, till 10586.xxx

    That's what i don't understand. Technically my 520 isn't on the tp anymore. I resetted it and it doesn't receive insider builds anymore. Why does it still get an update? When my 640 get's an update so does my 520.

    AAAAHHH clear now. Only way to exit the Insider program is switchin to Production Ring... or using WDRT. Not hard reset

    bugs i have plenty for you xD

    1. dark shade on the app list still persists, though it was assumed that this build will fix that.

    2. windows logo still missing from start screen, when in multitasking mode :)

    3. lock screen lag when you swipe down from pin entry numpad.

    4. my device is dual sim , so after update and hard reset i have no message icon now on the 2nd sim message app. its only a blank tile . i tried multiple times unpinning and then pinning it back but with no help.

    LUMIA 730- .218 . all apps updated. hard reset performed.

    performance and battery okay, but major bugs still laying around.

    and yes these bugs aren't whitewashed even after a hard reset :)

    2nd reset is somewhere down the road now, i guess :)

    Now that W10M has been officially released, devices on a 10586 build will continue to get future updates in the 10586 branch, since these are now considered production updates (regardless how you got there in the first place).

    *Really fast. I can navigate between things instantly with no issues.
    *One game in particular that was causing warming issues was Candy Crush Jelly. It was the only game that did that not even asphalt 8 was able to make it warm. This doesn't happen anymore.
    *Glance screen works a lot better. Before i would have to block the camera with my hand for quite a bit and unblock before glance came on. It seems to be doing it much faster by just waving my hand by.
    *continuum would cause phone to get warm but it never did that until I started doing remote desktop to a Redstone build on my PC. Now even with the redstone build it stays cool.
    *Battery has actually gotten much better, could be related to the warming issue previously.
    *Syncing of mail is zippy

    Great update. But we may get a new redstone build today so if there's cool features I may go for it. Though maybe I'll let others test it out first ;)


    Also great that MS has shown that they truly are in charge of the update process with windows 10.

    Glad to hear that, i felt like using Brand New Phone after updated to this build. A lot to mention buddy... A lot to mention. Best update yet, man that performance of my phone? Sooo fast, i can finally trash talk to those iPhone and Android kids.

    Not specific for this update, but I also state it for the record here that my Lumia 640 has never been recognized through USB by my laptop running Windows 7 Home 64-bit, ever since it was upgraded to win 10

    Otherwise, it works smoothly after I did a hard reset because e-mail notifications did not work for me.
