Build 10512 first impressions: 2000 fixes?? More needed.

wp_ss_20150813_0001So, here we are with our first impressions of the latest Windows 10 Mobile preview build, Build 10512. The build that arrived after a long waiting time is claimed to bring around 2000 fixes as per Microsoft’s Gabe Aul. But while it comes with its own set of “known issues”, there are some unknown issues with the build that we could see in our small hands-on time with the build.

Windows 10 Mobile Build 10512 first impressions:

  • Stable build. Hasn’t crashed on my Lumias yet.
  • Performance wise it is really good in some places but surprisingly behaves like a Beta build in others. While unlocking the screen and even while coming back to start screen from some apps it can be fast and slow alternatively. Quite moody!! Compared to Build 10166 that is certainly not an improvement.
  • Mobile Hotspot works on my Lumia 540 and Lumia 640 XL
  • Some bugs are so visible. Check the blinking “Quiet Hours” in Action Center.
  • WiFi can get disconnected at times and I never faced this issue with Build 10166 on same devices.
  • I did a hard reset on my Lumia 540 after the update but I haven’t seen any changes in the way the Build works and handles the operations.
  • New changes, what’s that?? May be we will find some later but till now, there is nothing to share.

In a nutshell, coming from Build 10166 and after a long wait, Build 10512 is bit of a disappointment. (If you follow NPU regularly, you would know that we are quite “forgiving” usually).

    Let time to time … It id a beta … Needing insiders to report bugs and improvements they would like … It crazy how some readers xan be do negative on versions under development. On my 1520 it works much better tan the previous version. On low memory systems its normal that there be bugs as its a beta … No surprise … Just wait until RTM to be able to really judge of the result. What I see is really going in the good tracks !

    I have Lumia 640 XL. With build 10512 the battery life is AWFUL. So back to 8.1 NOW.

    I think we should wait for the next build but surely the fixing is not fake at all but under the hood.

    is there an improvement in Android apps compatibility? Maybe the bug fixes are related to project Astoria.

      Bug Fixes are system wide but really frustrating to see some quite visible bugs at this stage.
