    Hi! I install w10m today, and i'm use it couple of hours. In my opinion it still not a daily driver. I don't know, did someone having problems with Skype? I can't call any one on video call. Try to call, it crash, if not, it calling but I can turn on video. Next problem. When you start record video, first couple of sec, picture stops, freezes up, and then it records normal. And when you play that video in gallery, that freez, you can see it. Then, edge. When i try to go to some sub menu (drop menu), I have to press like 5 times to that menu to drop down, that I can select what I want. Does anyone else have thees problems? My Lumia is 735
    p.s. sorry if my english is bad

    With all of these releases I have found the only way to succeed is to do a full phone reset and re install all of your apps. Don't restore backups as that causes the same issues as if you just did a straight upgrade. With most things in the cloud its not that big a deal other then the time it takes to re download apps/music and get your start screen and settings the way you like them. My guess is MS hasn't gottend the upgrade process bullet proof as of yet. If you have the expectation is that this upgrade will just work as normal, then being an insider isn't for you

    Once you do that, this build is the best we have seen so far, but battery life is a bit off at the moment. I did find that the Windows Heath app running the background was the biggest battery sucker for me. MS needs to look at that for us band 1 and soon to be band 2 users. It appears to be consuming 21% of my battery, with only the Start screen consuming more at 28%. Skype video and voice don't appear to be working but the chat component in messaging works fine. The Camera actually works now as do all the live tiles.

    This build is working fine as my daily driver, we are getting closer.....

    That issue I think is just generic to Windows 10 in general. Sometimes it seems to take a couple dozen touches to get a click to register. It will start zooming around instead of clicking. Happens on my Surface 3 and phone. They are one in the same.

    Whatever Windows 10 uses for touch handling was much better under Windows 8.1, phone and desktop.

    There is quite a bit of feedback about this too. On Windows 10 the tiles on the start menu often just bounce around when touched without actually registering a click.

    I had a weird issue yesterday where the screen kept timing out right away instead of my set 5 minutes. I powered it off and then everytime I tried to power it on it would shut off after the windows logo. So I just left it. Powered it up and again it was just a black screen. But then when I went to power it off the slide down screen showed up. I cancelled the slide down and my start screen was back and everything was fine. For a while there thought it was bricked. But yah still running like a smooth operator.

    Had to reinstall it twice. Finally just kinda settled into normal today. Two things though. I can't download Tweetium and my video for Lumia camera won't work so I have to use Windows camera now. Who knows maybe the latter us actually better anyway.
    That hoping this build is more stable. Its my DD.

    A bit slow on my 1320 but it's fine. Of course I have an issue, the notification center is not showing when I swipe from top. It was working fine when the installation finished but soon as I restart the phone that issue comes up. I did two hard resets and seems like that's not the fix for the problem. It's kind of a big deal.

    I found what was causing that issue. If I set the Regional format to Macedonia then the notification center will not appear. I have set it back to match the phone's language and it's working again.
    Looks like something else is causing the problem as it keeps happening again. I still haven't found a workaround except that I keep restarting the phone until it start working.

    Everything seems to work pretty well and a bit faster than previous builds on my Lumia 925. I can't download Australian speech files so I still have to change my region to get Cortana, but that seems to be the same for everyone. I can turn on my Mobile HotSpot from my Surface 3 again, which is great. I have an odd issue where changing any quick actions is possible except the Rotation Lock one. If I try to change that it crashes Settings. I also still had access to Glance from the Extras section of Settings after installing this build, which I haven't previously. That's great because SysApp Pusher failed to find it in the Store last time I tried.

    Feels much improved - faster and more consistent overall.
    The Edge browser still lacks some performance improvement, on my 640 XL at least,, to not frustrate during general use.
    Skype for business is serious broken - even after the recommended uninstall/install cycle - so for anyone relying on this for serious purposes the current build is a no-go IMHO.

    640XL here...

    The upgrade process of going back to 8.1 then upgrading was really no big deal. I don't see why anyone who uses a beta version of anything would complain about it. Then again, I usually backup and reinstall windows at least once every 6 months no matter what on my PCs to keep them clean, lean and efficient. I also build a new PC every year or two with the latest in processors, etc.

    As for the 10549 build, I get random crashes and bugs sure but they are minor and its a beta - that's how those go. In general though, the OS seems fast and responsive on the 640XL.

    I've never been more excited about the Microsoft ecosystem. Even though it took them years to finally nail it, I think Microsoft has it figured out now and I cant wait till it all comes together. Things like being able to answer cell phone text messages from my desktop is an awesome feature that they are working on - cant wait till it is complete.

    Lastly I will say this - Bill Gates did a presentation around 5-10 years ago that showed the future of windows. In his demonstration, the cell phone was your computer and you would set it on a desk and the monitor, keyboard and mouse would connect (wirelessly) and you would use it as your computer. Then, you would pick it up, put it in your pocket and go to work. Then you would set the cell phone down on your work desk and same thing - the monitor keyboard and mouse would activate and you would continue to use the cell phone device as your main computer. We are finally seeing the early version of this reality with Continuum.

    It was that presentation years ago that has kept me using windows all these years, even through vista and all that. It has kept me from moving completely over to Apple and FINALLY those things are coming together with Windows 10... Glad I stuck around for the ride and I continue to be excited about the future of the Windows ecosystem and the devices.

    I certainly plan to get a 950XL. I also hope they are going to actually come out with a Surface Phone next year with the same magnesium case as the surface book and the surfaces. The way things at Microsoft are going now, I even see them taking a lot of business from Apple over the coming year.

    Here's the feed back I've submitted so far based on my usage on a Lumia 830. Straight from 8.1 to new build. Followed by a hard-reset:

    1) Overall performance: About 85-90% of 8.1. UI still lags somewhat with jitter and graphical glitches. Locksceen (unlocking), Action centre (swipe down), scrolling and returning to start screen as the most noticeable.

    2) Live Tiles: Pinning and unpinning a tile may result in a "Ghost" tile: The OS thinks it was pinned, but it's not. Or, unpinned, but remains as a "place holder"...empty space. A reboot may cure it, but seems a little time for the OS to think about it cures it.

    3) Slow syncing email. In particular, notifications don't always disappear from glance and lock screen.

    4) Calendar app. Something wonky has happened here recently. Going to today's date usually takes you somewhere else. Clicking to exanpd to month view could take you months backwards or forwards. The timeline, or agenda I guess, will show past events instead of beginning at current. Duplicate entries.

    5) Mail App. Other than syncing as above, still getting that "Account settings out of date" error.

    6) Store. Still getting errors on updates. Won't work in background. Need to install/update one at a time or some fail. Still glitchy, but certainly speed has improved. UI (keyboard etc) won't get out of the way after searching. Apps are showing as not installed when in fact they are.

    7) Battery. So far, seems to be on par with 8.1. Still monitoring, though.

    That's it so far. I haven't tested everything yet, though.

    Still, I certainly see an improvement in performance. Just a little more work to do. It's pretty close to DD territory now, but not quite. Plus, I don't think they've fixed the longer-term degradation issue yet, either. Only time will tell the tale there.

    Lumia 640 after reset has been buggier than ever. Worse than the Las build. It lags, screen flashes often, apps don't open or take forever to pin. Ghosting. Edge browser sometimes doesnt display text in the address bar. Action center delay. Etc etc

    I agree. I have latest build running On several different Hardware. 640xl,930,1520, and it's not a pleasant experience. I did a hard reset after each install and the os is still far from anything that is 8.1 terms of usability. What Hardware is everyone using that claims that current build runs better than 8.1? I'm just not seeing it in various Hardware. I have an 822 (8.1) that's running circles around anything running 549 build. If my 950xl runs anything like current that builds and I will be unhappy. Time will tell. I have faith......

    Lumia 930 here. Haven't tried to download Tweetium yet, but I have same issue with video not working via the Lumia Camera app. I also have a periodic problem of white text when typing in the address bar of Edge. I had one issue of the phone screen turning off every ten seconds; it resolved after a soft reset.

    hey J4rrod, doing that simply gets rid of the colored square behind the app icons. hoping they could make the transparency optional across the board especially on the official apps.... 6tag, paypal, and a few other apps have this option.
