Microsoft has pushed Windows 10 Mobile Redstone Build 14328 yesterday as the latest Redstone build to Windows Insiders in Fast Ring and rocking any Redstone Preview supported Device as per the official list. Time for our Installation experience, Hands-on and first Impressions of the Build 14328 now!! The Build doesn’t bring any new changes and features over the last Build 14327 which does bring some changes and features and lots of bugs. You can read our hands-on experience of the Build 14327 by clicking here.
Just like Build 14327, the Installation experience has been smooth for the Build 14328 on again one of our devices and depending upon the network conditions and connection speed, it took around 40-45 minutes for the build to get downloaded, installed, data migrated and the devices getting up and running. On another device it took around 3 hours and it was stuck on 0% download for quite sometime. Only this time devices were reversed in taking time for updates.You will be usually notified for a restart when the download has completed in background. It may require up to 1 GB of free storage. So, check the storage before you upgrade and you can check our tutorial on how to prepare for upgrade to Windows 10 Mobile.
Hands-on Impressions, Bug & Issues:
We have demoed the Build 14328 on a Lumia 640 XL and Lumia 550.
- As you will notice in our hands-on demo video, Build 14328 feels faster and more responsive than the last Build 14327 on both Lumia 550 and Lumia 640 XL
- The overall UI, Lock Screen, Settings navigation all feel sorted out.
- Multitasking looks good too with Fast Resume working fine even on Lumia 550
- During our brief hands-on with the Build 14328 we found it mostly crash-free and working fine
- Microsoft has yet not crushed the bugs in some settings like Account Sign in options and even in Cortana options, where there is nothing under one settings.
- Microsoft Edge crashes are mostly gone in this build
- The Phone app has worked fine in our case and there is no Mobile Data issue
- Battery Life seems promising so far
So, Build 14328 can be said to be a promising build so far but our hands-on with this build is still brief and we may be able to find more bugs and issues after playing with this build for some more time. We also want to make it clear that it is our hands-on experience with the build and your experience may vary and may be better or worse than ours.
We must mention that we haven’t done hard reset on our devices but we recommend if you are facing lots of issues. You can read our guide to fix commonly known Windows 10 Mobile upgrade, installation and usability issues.
