Windows 10 Mobile version 10536.1004 is undergoing testing for a rollout next week

An earlier tweet from Aul relayed the information about the bug and the cancellation of Friday's update. The executive said that the new build is currently undergoing testing, and is being evaluated by the team. He added that the update should be available some time this coming week.
Version 10536.1004 is expected to fix problems that prevented the use of mobile Hotspots, and repair an issue with Quiet Hours. That is the feature that blocks all but the most important calls and texts from reaching your phone during those times when you don't want to be disturbed. A bug that made the lock screen lag is exterminated with this build. The new version of Windows 10 Mobile also brings better performance, and a few changes to the Start personalization settings.

I could say the same about iOS or Android. At least these guys delayed to fix it and didn't release the OS half broken like some fruit named company I know of.

i've never in my entire life heard of such a bug on iOS or Android nor any other platform... i'm not hating on Microsoft tho, but it's nothing short of surprising, i could understand a bug like that if it was the very first alpha release, but it's like 5th or 6th beta release, it's safe to say anyone would expect something better

What's the name of the rock you've been living under? Android 5.0 was so riddled with bugs that many OEMs waited for 5.1 before pushing the updates. I guess you didn't hear about iOS 8.0 and its littany of bugs either.

Well....that argument works the other way round as well. Who says fixing this bug will make Windows 10 Mobile less buggy when it releases ? It could turn out to be a similar debacle as iOS 8 or Android 5.0.

"Debacle" is a bit harsh of a word to use for small bugs in some of the most advanced technology the world has ever seen, c'est le first world problems I guess... The only argument I made is that we should wait for the final release to pass judgement.

About time. I'm still waiting for USB OTG though, which is something waaaaaaaaay overdue. I've been replacing all my flash drives with the ones that have both full USB and micro USB, so I'm ready!

As much as I loved WM6-6.5 and wanted to like the phone 8, I couldn't... Even the mobile 10 version is not my taste. Why would someone dump Android and go WM, a locked OS with very limited app store is beyond me....

Sans the third party apps, Windows Phone is an healthy ecosystem. Office, OneDrive, Windows 10,Lumia and the developer community is all well built. If someone is heavily invested on an ecosystem, lets say Microsoft Windows, why switch to iOS or Android when all you need is at there in the first place.

Because people want something different still and happen to love that underdog OS despite the deficiencies. I for one will be returning to Windows 10 Mobile after my one year affair with Android and what a year that has been. The most important thing I learned is that there is life outside of Windows if things don't work out. I have my expectations as well for the platform being Microsoft's third implementation and I will not stick around if things don't improve in at least a year or so.

Do or die time for Windows 10. Having the office team suck Apples core stem during the iPad pro presentation certainly wasn't a great start but who knows. Maybe if Intel finally destroys ARM like people think they eventually will do, Microsoft can make their power move then.
