Windows 10 Mobile

Windows 10 Mobile Build 14361 Review and First impression are here. Last night, Microsoft released Windows 10 Mobile Build 14361 to Windows Insiders in the fast ring. There aren’t lots of new features and major improvements on Windows 10 Mobile Build 14361. This is a short review of mobile build 14361 as there are no major changes with the latest Redstone Mobile Build.

First Impression

The first impression of Windows 10 Mobile 14361 was not very well for me. After migration process completed, the broken lock screen arrived. As soon as I swiped up to close the lock screen, the phone got freeze. However, after restarting the phone, it was still buggy and not performing well. Later on, the phone started to speed up, but the loading and resuming screen are still noticeable.

Nothing has changed from previous Windows 10 Mobile Build 14356. However, Microsoft has fixed several issues which Windows Insiders reported on mobile build 14356. It is worth mentioning that with Windows 10 Mobile Build 14361, Microsoft has finally introduced the One Handed Keyboard mode on 5-inch devices. Before this feature was only available for 5.7-inch plus devices like Lumia 950 XL, Lumia 1520 or Lumia 640 XL.

Unfortunately, one-handed keyboard mode is broken on Windows 10 Mobile Build 14361. If you use One Handed keyboard mode in landscape mode, the UI of the keyboard will become a mess as the key in keyboard becomes too small and half of the screen will be occupied by the blank grey screen. Luckily, the one-handed keyboard mode works well in portrait screen.
