My Windows 10 Mobile experience is an F-

After hearing that the latest build of Windows 10 Mobile, build 10581, is supposedly stable enough to be an everyday use, I gave it a go on my Lumia.

Anyway, I am ready to give my experience an F-

Calendar crashed on opening.

Data Sense crashed on opening.

Maps crashed on opening.

Microsoft Edge crashed on opening.

Windows 10 Mobile is being release this month, yet some of the built-in apps won't even open!

I am seriously wondering what MSFT is thinking.

what device are you testing on?

i have the latest build on my Lumia 925 (at&t branded) and have not really had any crashing issues. the only thing i've had crash on the latest build is the Store and that was right after the upgrade (i haven't used the phone in a couple months so all the updates overloaded the store at first)

Completely unusable on 920. I'm back to 8.1.

I'm running the latest on my Icon and I don't have any of the problems you mentioned.

How did you do the upgrade?

I followed the steps from this post, http://forums.windowscentral.com/microsoft-lumia-950-xl/386522-30.htm#post3263397 and couldn't be any happier with the build.  No battery drain, loading screens or apps crashing.

Not sure that the 920 is the best device to use Win10 on. In fact, I'm leaving my 920 on Win8.1.

While I have not tested any of the Win10 mobile builds, I wouldn't use them on anything other than a 1520 or newer.

The Lumia 920 has 1 GB of RAM which is plenty considering that Windows 10 Mobile runs on devices like the Lumia 520 and Lumia 620 which only have 512 MB of RAM.

So wait, you are grading something as an F-, that is not released yet? And you are basing this off of an insider PREVIEW build?

Windows 10 Mobile is being released this month.

This build must be very close to the build that will be officially release.

I am pretty happy with Mobile, aside from the loss of Astoria, and cannot wait for the RTM build.  My beef is with desktop right now (I can't install the latest, supposed TH2 build on my tablet because it hangs during install, and 10240 sucks). I am having one issue with Mobile, and that is that Glance won't update so I'm stuck with an older version, but I can live with that for now.

i bet you didn't do a "factory reset" after updating to the build, which you are supposed to. no such issues on my 920 and 1520. its ready for prime time.

No, I didn't, but why am I "suppose to" do a factory reset?

Is a normal user suppose to do a factory reset after they upgrade?

Not going to miss Astoria. Native apps or GTFO

You aren't a normal user, and a normal user isn't using an insider preview build to begin with. It is recommended to do master resets on the insider builds for the best experience, many have not done the reset and been fine, but it is a recommended step. When RTM drops this should not be necessary, but it is a good practice to do going from one generation of an operating system to another.

A normal user will get an OTA which is designed to upgrade pre-existing databases and the like. That is not what you did.

Like I have previously said, Windows 10 Mobile will be released this month.

This last build should be close to production quality.

It's the same way I expect a building to be more than three-forth completed a month before opening.

Yes, I did. If I hadn't I would have the latest Glance.

I only need it for Nook, Calibre Companion (to download the books from my server for the Nook app), and Tsum Tsum.  If B&N would make a universal app then half my problem would be solved, but the game may never come to Windows.

I don't care that it is being released later this month, it has absolutely NOTHING to do with your problems. You are using BETA software and complaining about a build from the end of October. You DIDN'T follow the normal guidelines for a BETA build, and didn't bother with the master reset. You can keep sidestepping all you want and continue to bring up the fact RTM is hitting later this month, BUT there could very well be changes between the BETA build you are on now, and the RTM build that is coming. This isn't rocket science, like you are making it out to be.

 

Your little comparison doesn't really fit either. You don't think Microsoft has private testing builds right now?

Bear in mind that you are using pre-release software.

Do you expect a huge improvement in stability in a couple of weeks?
