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?

Microsoft rolls out Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview build 10586.71

 

  • Windows Update performance and reliability improvements
  • Improvements in migration of data profiles and messaging settings when upgraded from Windows Phone 8.1.
  • SensorCore API’s are now upgraded correctly from Windows Phone 8.1; allowing applications, including many fitness applications, to correctly access movement data.
  • SD card detection has been improved on boot and after insertion; File Explorer now handles the removal of an SD card when the default for apps or photos are set to SD.
  • Improvements in the Edge browser, including PDF rendering.
  • Bluetooth improvements when re-connecting to all ready paired devices and cars; turn by turn directions, and when using Cortana with the Microsoft Band.
  • Improvements in Settings when downloading Maps or changing Quick Settings.
  • Reinstalling Groove Music from the Windows Store no longer causes DRM music playback issues. Groove Music local song collections are now more quickly imported within the application
  • Device power improvements after listening to music, after missed phone calls when iris detection is disabled, and when downloading updates.
  • In app purchases now work correctly when cellular data is disabled.
  • Improvements to the reliability of Kids Corner.

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.
