Windows 10 Technical Preview for phones

Windows InsiderI test Windows 10 for PC since weeks, but I had no device available to test the phone version. As I just changed my Lumia Lumia 625 for a Lumia 1320, I could not wait to test Windows 10 on the Lumia 625.
How to install it:

  • First, you need a compatible smartphone: http://windows.microsoft.com/fr-fr/windows/preview-supported-phones
  •  I recommend using a different phone than your primary phone because the system is not yet stable.
  •  Register your Microsoft account in the program "Windows Insider" here: https://insider.windows.com/
  •  Download "Windows Insider" application from the store or here: http://windows.microsoft.com/fr-fr/windows/preview-download-phone
  •   Run "Windows Insider" application . Two operating modes are available for this application: Slow = more or less stable version or Fast = latest version with more bugs. For my Lumia 625 only the Fast option is working.
  • Then go to the Update menu "Settings / Phone Update /check availability of updates"
  • Install the update
  • The phone reboots by installing the update.

Note that this is an update and not a complete reinstallation. The parameters and programs should normally be preserved. Unfortunately, in my case, the main menu was totally unstable. I was able to make it usable by resetting from the menu "Settings / System / About / Reset your phone." It then was reinstalled with a clean system while remaining in Windows 10.
 

Honestly, this system does not upset much compared to Windows 8.1. The most notable changes i see are in the settings menu that sound much more orderly and understandable than the old.

  3. Surely, most, if not, all of us have experienced a system crash at least once in our life. As soon as we reboot the computer again, automatically we are asked if we want to send an error report to the Windows website. Runtime error
