Observations of various builds led us to one interesting conclusion: for maximum performance of Windows 10 Mobile builds, always reset your device.
And before you start to resent why this is so and what this nonsense is, we will assure you that there is nothing supernatural in this. Once you have already installed Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview, then you should be prepared at least for bugs or resetting your settings and a maximum for bricking your smartphone and further flashing it. So this is normal practice. Testing. It’s not a simple matter, and only for the desperate.
On the other hand, if you are satisfied with the work of insider assemblies on your phone, you can leave it as it is and not do a reset. This is entirely voluntary. We just share our observations, since in almost all cases our smartphones worked much faster precisely after a complete reset of Windows 10 Mobile.
