    For the Extras, the first is just a header, the second is the link/app.

    The changing search engine has been there for quite a while but it looks like they have added more options. Pretty sure only Google and Bing were the only ones available before.

    One thing that has changed in this build is they rook out the FM radio app.

    This build is a power sucker. The battery drains out so fast. I may reset it back to previous build.

    Today I finally decided to give up and restore my three Windows Phones to Windows Mobile 8.1. I simply cannot use the phones with 10.

    This screenshot taken while on call, battery discharge rate fluctuating between 40% and 50% per hour. With full charge I can call for an hour, or half an hour and 15 to 20 minutes surfing:

    All services like mobile data, WLAN, Bluetooth, NFC, Location and so on turned off, as well as all background tasks:

    Ending the call and charging the phone, it goes back to single digit discharge rate. But: never under 4% per hour, usually between 6% and 8%. Again, all services and background tasks turned off:

    This makes the phone pretty much useless.

    Using Windows Mobile 8.1, the discharge rate fluctuates between 2% and 3% per hour, with all services and background tasks turned on. Everything off it's between 1.5% and 2%.

    It's a no-brainer to choose: I take a functioning phone always before a fancy UI.

    update..

    My phone is back to Denim now.
    Windows 10 is nice but something has to be done about the battery issue.
    The restore from cloud backup feature is really working great. I was even able to restore some apps to Win 8.1 that I installed when I was using Win 10 Mobile.

    I'm glad the restore from cloud backup worked for you. I lost several months of text messages resetting my phone. I was playing around in Win 10 and had to revert back to 8 and start over. I don't know why but the cloud backup only had two backups. One was from a several months ago and one was after reverting back to 8. I know I had more backups but I don't know where they went. Every time I upgrade I do a backup first.

    I did notice in the last build my battery drained faster than previous build but nowhere near as bad as Kari's. I haven't had a chance to really test out this build yet.

    Did you change the settings to download messages "from last year"? That's what I did and my old messages came back instantly.

    Got the Groove update - all looking good and sounding peachy..

    Spent quite a while going through my sounds, testing them with a Polaroid Bluetooth speaker..
    attached physically via the phone's 3.5mm stereo jack, the Equalizer offers quite a good range of settings..
    - the sound response via Bluetooth is LOUD and clear..

    When I checked my battery usage for the previous six hours (post-update), it showed that Groove had consumed 184%..!!

    All is running fine, though - the battery quickly charged to full via the Dock while testing Continuum..

    Yes I did. They are gone to the Great Cloud beyond the cloud. I did manage to have some of the pictures I lost resent back to me. I was going to save them but kept putting it off. They are saved now.
