    It's my daily driver and I don't wanna have it screw anything up so do you guys think it's good enough to use as my daily driver?

    I would not recommend it unless you're ok with factory resetting the phone at any given moment.

    You will just be another free guinea pig for Microsoft like I did. You will not be able to install windows mobile on the final version, as determined by the minimum requirement described from Microsoft. Stay with 8.1 until you decide to change phone.

    I have tried it twice now, the most recent was the 10536 build. I am going to let someone else in the 928 world take the hit next time. Right now, back to 8.1 Denim, my camera fully loads shootable in sub 3secs, it's roughly 10x faster than on build 10536. The look and feel of W10 is fantastic and kept me on it for weeks longer than I should have. I just had forgotten how amazingly smooth the 8.1 experience was. So if 8.1 Denim on a clean build is the standard, W10 - as cool as the UX is - is like running a 18 month old phone on Android.

    I have it on my 928. It's...ok, not great. I jumped in with the last build, 10536. The latest build is definitely better, but it still has significant problems. Sounds like it wouldn't be a good for for you yet.

    Okay, taking one for the team here and going with Build 10572. Will let you folks know what the results are.

    Welp, that didn't work. Installed and could watch the start/splash screen come up but never got a screen after that. WDRT back in there reinstalling 8.1

    I'm waiting for 10575 hopefully later this week. Going back to 8 again so soon doesn't sound appealing.

    I have to admit, 8.1 is superb on the 928. It is running "amazingly smooth" as you wrote.

    Sticking with 8.1, I need my data and it seems like the builds don't play nice with the 928 on Verizon's CDMA network. Not up for experimentation at the moment.

    So was not convinced the build issue I saw was really what I saw. Ended up re-running the 10572 install and it DOES black out for a good while mid stream (no screen, no button detection, no nothing .... then that passes and all is fine). So take the leap of faith if it looks like it's locked up and there's no screen. The build is fantastic compared to the previous. It actually is close enough to performance to 8.1 that I wouldn't dream of going back now. The camera is quick enough, not 100% 8.1 speed but it's really close. The transition animations seem to now work which makes everything seem smooth like 8.1. I have not seen any ANY dumps yet and this was rebuilt 36 hours ago.

    Really highly impressed with this build and that's by far the first time I have said that one the WM10 builds.

    Just installed it yesterday. Took about 3 hours for it to install and update all of the APPs.. It is much faster and runs more smoothly then 8.1 update 2. Pretty happy with it.

    I have been running it (10581) since the above post (so 17-18 days) and don't think it's dumped on me yet. Really never thought of going back to 8.1 with this build so that says a good bit. It's fast enough that I don't notice it being slow compared to 8.1.

    I have been using last 3 builds of W10 and it is great with 10581. It freezes sometimes after a phone call but if I wait or just hold down the start button until it goes black, then it will come back on and work fine. Anyone know when we get 10586?

    I have been running all the preview builds on my 928. If you can accept a few freezes / crashes occasionally it will work. My 928 is broken (earpiece does not work) and I am trying to figure out my next move.

    Have any of you had issues with connecting to Verizon's network? The two earlier builds I have tried didn't play nice with Verizon's 4G LTE at all.

    I have not had that issue MarineDawg. Only standout issue is Swype in Edge on some bbs drop words.

    I am tired of the 928. It is barely keeping up with my daily needs. I am switching to an iPhone 5, to hold me over on Verizon.

    Let sleeping dogs lie? Never, I'm installing the most current build now... time to cross my fingers.

    Update: For the remaining four of you who are still using the 928 this build is a winner. There are minor lags but overall a satisfactory experience. My only complaint is that my photos aren't uploading to my OneDrive which I am sure is a setting that needs to be tweaked. WinMo10 is a winner!

    So would the latest build be safe to try if the phone is my only phone?

    I would say so however (586.63 just installed so this may change,) you'll have to live with battery drain and if using as a hotspot it will stop sharing when the screen goes to sleep/locked (max timeout at 5 mins.) Despite these nuisances I have Bern using it for a month. The good outweighs the bad but this may be a different experience for you.

    Pretty much sums up my experience too, except I can't turn hotspot on at all.
