    Pulling the trigger...today?...... Have a question..... Still running the original 8.1 update 2... Is it as simple as backing up and downloading the update(already on the insider app)... Is a hard reset required?..

    Yes, it's as easy as that, however the phone works best if you don't restore a backup since you're restoring lots of old data that may screw with the new OS. My suggestion is to just save the files from your phone to your PC, then transfer them back when you're on Win10Mobile.

    So..backup (whichever way you want), install the app, select the ring, go to phone update, and just check for updates. A hard reset is recommended, however not mandatory.

    Don't upgrade if it's your daily driver.

    I have an HTC One M8 and everything works great. Best W10Mob release yet, I use it as a daily driver, have for the last couple of months.

    I did a phone reset after the upgrade to 10586.11, then did the updates, then deleted the ones I don't want and installed all the new ones.

    This phone really is a great piece of hardware, solid, excellent speakers, 2.4 ghz quad core with 2 GB of RAM. I think I am going to go with it for the time being and not buy a 950, I want to see if the rumors that Microsoft is going to build a x86 surface phone are true, so the thing will really be a mobile PC.

    FWIW I never do a restore, I back up but I have installed new software so many times I just have done a minimal install until this past one.

    Only issue I have with my M8 is ringtones sometimes get torn up and sound like the speaker is blown after playing music through Groove. A reboot fixes it for awhile.

    Working good here... once in awhile a little lag here and there. But that is expected with preview build. I ran it on wifi for a couple days before I made it my daily driver.

    I went straight from 8.1 to 10586.11 and have had no problems, my M8 runs smooth and everything works, I do not use a Dot matrix case so I can't speak for it but all the other HTC app's work. Best Windows phone made

    I have noticed that the battery doesn't go as far as with 8.1, still will make the day but no reserve.

    Can you install the HTC sense TV app from the store? It doesn't show up in search results when I search from the phone. I can find the link using edge browser, but it says the app is not compatible with my phone.

    I don't use Dot View, but my update that constantly failed finally updated. It might be working now.
