First Windows 10 Redstone builds are here for Windows 10 Insiders on PCs, but it looks like Microsoft is also working on the very first Redstone build for Windows 10 Mobile. The build is, of course, still only tested internally, seeing as we even don’t have a full version of the OS yet.
We still have no official confirmation from Microsoft, but WindowsMania.pl posted a screenshot of what seems to be the first Windows 10 Mobile Redstone build. The build is apparently being tested on a Lumia 640 XL, and it goes by the number of 10.0.11102.1000. We’re still far from receiving this build, because the system itself is not released yet, and it also appears that the build is very buggy, which is totally expected, since it’s in the first development phase.
First Windows 10 Mobile Redstone Build Has a Lot of Bugs
First thing that caught our attention is that the build has an extremely negative impact on the battery life. Lumia 640 XL normally has a standby time of approximately 5 hours, but when build 10.0.11102.1000 is installed, it only lasts for about 1 hour in continued use mode. Besides the problem with battery, it looks like sound is not working, as well.
As we said, Microsoft is testing this build internally for now, but the company probably won’t rush with the release, since it has more important things to deliver first (read: Windows 10 Mobile). This also could be the first time that Microsoft delivers the update with the same name to both PC and mobile devices.
Millions of users around the world are anticipating the official announcement for Windows 10 Mobile, as we already had a few setbacks. So, we think that Microsoft will announce and release the final version of Windows 10 Mobile first, and then it will start to focus more on the coming updates.
