Windows 10 Mobile Build 10586: Impressions of the RTM Build

Build 10586.11.1

Microsoft finally released Windows 10 Mobile Build 10586.11, the patched version of RTM Build 10586 that is already running on Lumia 950 out of the box. You can read official changelog and known issues of Build 10586 by clicking on the links. Now here we are with our first impressions of the RTM Build 10586. You can read our guide to fix commonly known Windows 10 Mobile upgrade, installation and usability issues.

Windows 10 Mobile Build 10586 first impressions:

  • Build 10586 offers a smooth upgrade from existing Preview builds unless you have done a hard reset on Build 10581. Three of my devices running Build 10581 upgraded smoothly and it was quite fast upgrade experience.
  • While the build comes with some known issues,  none of them mar the usage experience. It is very polished, really the smoothest and fastest Windows 10 Mobile preview build ever. We recommend to do a hard reset after upgrade and you won’t regret it.
  • The Build fixes the issue with storage settings and app installs to SD Card and storage and app migration and installation to SD Card works flawlessly.
  • It hasn’t crashed even once on my devices and runs impressively well even on low-end devices like Lumia 525. We are uploading our hands-on video as we write this article. No resuming screens on even Lumia 525 during heavy multitasking.
  • Battery discharge rate wise it has been simply great and we can tell you more once we have used it for at least one day.
  • The Mail & Calendar, Messaging, Action Center offer the  and most consistent experience on this build. No “fix your account” messages.
  • Only issue we could find is with the zombie apps updates that keep on getting into error once you have done a hard reset. We can understand it is not an issue on new devices like Lumia 950 but on older devices it won’t be appreciated highly. Store though works every bit faster and smoother.

Build 10586.11.2

In a nutshell, Windows 10 Mobile Build 10586 feels every bit a RTM build and is quite impressive as a daily driver, though it is early impression that we are talking about. And here is our detailed hands-on video of the Build on Lumia 640 XL and Lumia 525.

    w10m is great but I miss many features from wp8.1. I like the new ui but it needs to be more consistent. performance wise its faster than wp 8.1 according to my experience 🙂

    STILL feels like a beta OS that’s months from release. Unfortunately, my 950XL that I ordered isn’t even as far along as the version we installed yesterday. WAY WAY WAY too many features missing that existed in 7.x and 8.x. I’m really disappointed that they decided to rush the release to get it out before the holidays instead of waiting so it would rock the phone world. As stated before, I will NOT be updating any more of my 8.x devices to 10 because quite frankly, 8.x is a far better OS.
