Known issues with the first build of Windows 10 Preview for smartphones
According to rumors, in the first group of devices that can download and install the first preview version of Windows 10 for smartphones are Lumia 1020, Lumia 1520 and HTC One M8. This information was allegedly disclosed and within the team Microsoft, which currently holds the last tests before leaving the Assembly in the light of what might happen this week.
Obviously, we cannot be sure of the veracity of this information until they are confirmed, and likewise, we cannot exclude that in addition to these devices, and others. So it is very likely that the first list also includes other Lumia models such as the 830 and 930. But this is only a hypothesis.
From these s also comes the warning that the first build of the Technical Preview is very unstable and very «buggy». For example, in the version that is currently being tested inside Microsoft, there are the following «anomaly»:
- fast and sudden battery discharge and overheating even during a phone call;
- retarded animation;
- I cannot Glance;
- the HTC One cannot hide the virtual buttons;
- some problems with function «do Not disturb», including disabling the alarm.
All these problems can be solved before the first build of Windows 10 for smartphones, but not necessarily that way, the more that can emerge, and other problems. Thus, if the list of selected devices will be your model, think ten times before beginning installation. It is highly recommended not to install the test version on the main smartphone, especially if you use it as a working tool. Forewarned is forearmed!
