    I am thinking about upgrading just for the heck of it.

    Still, I am afraid that will render my phone useless if I upgrade it on my everyday phone.

    Any thoughts or tips before upgrading?

    Thanks.

    Absolutely it is. This is the first build that could be used as your daily driver . There are still bugs of course many maybe major to you depending on how you use your phone . My main problems and I'm using a Lumia icon
    1.mms doesn't work
    2. Outlook mail just sucks compared to inbox. Not a bug just my opinion
    3. My camera crashes when I switch to video.
    4. I cannot download images from email or the browser .
    5. Most of the pictures I set as my background become very blurry and too zoomed in .
    6. Some apps I open like camera or browser after I close them my phone just gets hotter and hotter and drains battery quickly unless I restart my phone .

    There are a few more but for the most part wp10 is great everything looks great (except Outlook mail) so backup your phone install it you got nothing to lose its easy to go back with the tool.

    NO! Hell no! While it's a big improvement over the previous general release in which nothing seemed to open it's neither stable nor swift. Most apps are far from fine tuned - people, mail in particular which most users would depend on.

    It's the first time I can use it for daily use @830 I don't seem to have any issues mentioned over the forums. It only happened once that my phone rebooted cos of WC app. But that happens on my 8.1 hah. It did lag at first minutes of use but then it fixed it self.

    Yeah just go for it . It is very usable and it is stable . This of course May depend on what device you have.
    For the first time this is starting to look like wp10 may actually be an official release in the coming months . I can actually see the light at the end of the tunnel !

    On my 930 its extreme fast now, often faster than 8.1
    Its also very stable, but of course there are also many small bugs, which doesn't really bother me, because i get many new features with it. Nothing serious on my side, most annoying one is battery time, which in my case lasts only a day now (with good usage). Was 2 days on 8.1, but I think that's fine tuning

    I've installed it on my L920 and it's miserable. On a newer quad-core phone it's probably OK, but on the older stuff it's not ready for daily use.

    Not at all, IMO.

    I also have a hard time believing its faster than 8.1 on a 930. 8.1 has been well optimized. A clean install will make anything feel "fast".

    When its fast it's faster than 8.1 on my icon. However it is still In test build so there is lag from time to time

    Depends on the phone. Seems like 1520 users are having a pretty nice experience for the most part - I updated my 1020 to the latest build and whilst I'm finding it stable battery life kinda sucks and there are little glitches and missing things here and there. So it depends on what you can live with. Whilst there are some bugs though, for the most part it's actually quite usable.

    I'm looking to install on my 1020 also but I have to go through to 10080 as I have it queued. Regarding your glitches, have you done a hard reset to try and resolve?

    They're not really bad glitches by any means, just little things like a bit of screen tearing in the multitasking screen and double tap working unreliably. I hard reset when I was 10080 and that didn't seem to do much for me in terms of performance - in fact it probably made it worse as I lost all my touch and glance screen settings. I think most of my "issues" (call them first-world problems if you so wish) are down to bugs with the build - looking in Windows Feedback people often have similar issues as me.

    Also, as with most OS installs it's always doing lots of optimisation and other stuff in the background for the first couple of days/weeks and so I expected things to be buggy for the last couple of days. Even battery life is slowly getting there day-by-day (from 25% / hour to 10% / hour now)

    Works fine on my 640xl. There are some bugs but you'll get used to them.

    Thanks for that update, greatly appreciated. I was on 10080 but had to roll back because of the start screen issue. So today ill let 10080 install, then upgrade to 10149. I'll see how that's works for a few days but I personally like to do a hard reset and load OS clean to ensure there are no glitches carries over during upgrade.

    Also one of the bugs I mentioned about the start screen wallpapers being blurry was fixed by checking the store beta for an update to the photos app .
