Hi guys, after updating to the latest win 10 build 10586.29, Microsoft Camera opens instantly( No more 2-3 secs loading time) and shot to shot saving time have been greatly improved as well..

Though Lumia Camera is still slow as earlier, it shows that its being improving!!

Obviously it can't compete with instant camera open of 950, but its damm fast now.. Microsoft optimize the os more, My 1020 can surely run another one year more of its life with ease :D
 

1020 will never have a "fast" camera for taking pictures and saving for several reasons.

first the massive resolution and the image processing it needs to do. then the image size it needs to save, this increases again if you chose to use raw files.

I am still waiting for some sort of firmware upgrade for the Lumia 930. There is no audio in video recording when the phone is running Windows 10 mobile. How Microsoft can miss out this basic feature is really surprising?

people annoyed by the audible hiss then pop after every sound

 

often caused by Microsoft Solitaire, as killing that stops it

or

A lot of times I feel it gets "triggered" by whatsapp, and then just get stuck with every notification coming after it, even when the sound is off, until the next restart. on.63 version.

Small bug which still persist:

  • Start icon still grey box in task switcher

The missing icons happen after upgrade from WP8. It's not present if you do a hard reset.

Closing apps is much smoother now.

There is an  issue that if you scroll in e.g. the store and don't do small flicks but keep your finger on the screen, the content will start jumping around weirdly (is jittering a good word?), which is very disorienting.
It doesn't happen in all apps (e.g. it doesn't happen in Telegram or the All Apps List), but it happens in most.

It is not stutter as if you let go of the screen, the content will continue scrolling smoothly. It is an issue with the touch input.

After the update was done it re-installed a lot of apps. Like Here maps etc.

Microsoft releases Windows 10 Mobile build 14327 to the Fast ring

 

 

Here's what's new:

Try out the Messaging Everywhere Preview

You can now try out the preview of the “Messaging everywhere” feature in Windows 10 that allows you to send and receive text messages from your phone directly from your Windows 10 PC’s.

messaging.jpg

To enable this:

  • Make sure you are signed in with your Microsoft Account (MSA).
  • On your phone – make sure “Send texts on all my Windows devices” is turned on.
  • On your PC – make sure you have chosen which phone to send messages through. You do this in the settings of the Messaging app on your PC (screenshot above).

Try it out and less us know what you think via the Feedback Hub.

NOTE: You may have noticed that Skype integration in the Messaging app in this build of Windows 10 Mobile has been removed. This is so Skype can streamline your experience, replacing the integration with the Skype UWP Preview app for mobile in an upcoming build. In the meantime, you can use the existing Skype for Windows Phone app available in the Windows Store.

Cortana in more languages

With this build, we are enabling Cortana for the Spanish (Mexico), Portuguese (Brazil) and French (Canada) languages for Mobile (available previously in PC builds). If you’re running the Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview in these languages – give Cortana a try and let us know what you think. For each new market and language, the Cortana Team works to develop a custom experience that is relevant in each individual market and language. These are early versions that we will continue improve based on your feedback and we look forward to hearing more from you.

Voice input is also now available for these languages. Set focus to a text field and tap the microphone above the keyboard to give it a try.

If you're on the Fast ring, you can grab this build right now by heading over to Windows Update on your supported Windows phone.

When I put Windows 10 on my Lumia 640 I was very surprised there was no native way to network it to one of my Windows 10 machines.... I was like WTF.

      The November 2020 Xbox Console Update is rolling out today
      by Rich Woods



      Today, Microsoft is rolling out the November 2020 Xbox Console Update, which is available for the entire Xbox One family of consoles, as well as the newer Xbox Series X|S. There are a bunch of new features, many of which are exclusive to the new generation.

      If you're a fan of the dynamic backgrounds on the Xbox Series X|S, there's now more of them. They're still exclusive to the new generation. Microsoft says that some of the six new designs are homages to previous generations.

      There's now a tag in the Guide to let you know if a game is using Auto HDR. If you're unfamiliar, Auto HDR is basically upscaling SDR content to HDR. Now you'll be able to tell when it's happening.

      There's a new X|S badge to games that are optimized for the new generation in My Games and Apps. You can also filter to only see optimized games.

      One new feature improves the setup experience, and that lets you add family members. This is for those already using Xbox family settings.

      You can finally pre-install new games that are coming to Xbox Game Pass. Obviously, you still have to wait to actually play them, but now you can pre-install like you would be able to if you purchased the game.

      And finally, Microsoft is adding the ability to enroll Xbox Series X|S consoles in the Xbox Insider Program. The November 2020 Xbox Console Update is available now.

      Microsoft highlights key items COVID-19 vaccine management platforms should include
      by Hamza Jawad



      Last month, Microsoft announced that its employees would continue to work from home until July next year given the evolving conditions under the COVID-19 pandemic. Now, with multiple vaccines for the novel coronavirus approaching FDA approval, the tech giant has released a few guidelines for potential vaccine management platforms.

      With unique distribution challenges such as prioritization, phased eligibility, cold-chain storage supply, and fair allocation on the horizon, the need to identify some must-have elements in a vaccine management platform has been deemed significant by Microsoft. These include:

      Dr. David Rhew, Microsoft's Worldwide Chief Medical Officer, commented on the importance of such a platform, noting:

      Microsoft has also outlined the significance of partnering up with different healthcare organizations to ensure that the upcoming challenges can be met. Committing to equip governments with any resources that may be required, the Redmond firm hopes to make COVID-19 vaccines widely availably and accessible to those in need.

      ASUS's dual-screen ZenBook Pro Duo is $400 off today
      by Rich Woods

      It's Cyber Monday, the Monday following Black Friday where there are tons of deals to be had. One such deal is for the ASUS ZenBook Pro Duo, which is available for $400 off on Amazon, so you can grab it for $1,899.99.

      The interesting thing about the ZenBook Pro Duo is that is has a secondary touchscreen that sits above the keyboard. It's meant to help with multitasking. Both the 15.6-inch main screen and the 14-inch secondary screen are 4K, although only the secondary one supports touch. For example, when playing a game, you might use the second screen to watch a tutorial.

      It's also a powerful laptop. This one has an Intel Core i7-9750H, 16GB RAM, and a 1TB SSD, along with an Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 GPU. There are other configurations, including some with 10th-generation processors, but they're not being discounted today.

      This configuration of the ASUS ZenBook Pro Duo normally costs $2,299.99, but it's $1,899.99 for today only. You can check it out on Amazon here.

      Acer's ConceptD 3 Ezel is $150 off for Cyber Monday
      by Rich Woods

      Acer's ConceptD 3 Ezel is getting a solid discount for Cyber Monday today. It's $150 off of its normal price of $1,499.99.

      ConceptD is Acer's brand of PCs that are aimed at creators, so if you're into things like photo editing, video editing, or something along those lines, this is something that might want to check out. The ConceptD 3 Ezel comes with a 14-inch Pantone Validated high-brightness display with 100% sRGB color gamut, so you can count on accurate colors.

      It's also a powerful convertible, something that's a rarity on its own. It includes Intel's 45W Comet Lake H processors, along with dedicated graphics in the form of an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 with 4GB GDDR6. On top of that, it's got 16GB DDR4 memory and a 512GB SSD.

      It has a pen garage built into the chassis, so it's always with you. And yes, that pen support goes with the convertible form factor. As you can see from the image above, the display pops out and you can put it on an angle, or you can fold it down to use as a tablet. The chassis is all-white, and the keyboard has an orange backlight.

      We haven't reviewed it just yet, but you can check out our unboxing here. You can pick up this PC for $1,249.99 on Amazon right now in the configuration described above. Other configurations, such as the ones with RTX graphics, are currently unavailable,

      by Pulasthi Ariyasinghe

      The December Games with Gold promotions have already begun. Coming in with the games detailed in the recent announcement, the first wave of bonus games for Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members are now available, offering The Raven Remastered and Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell to claim for free.

      The Raven Remastered is available for Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S owners, while the latter Saints Row title can be claimed and played across the Xbox 360, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S consoles.

      Use the direct store links below while being logged into a Gold activated account to claim the duo:

      The Raven Remastered (Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S)

      Saints Row: Gat out of Hell (Xbox 360, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S)
