Any improvements of BT stability? Phone disconnecting during  calls in my car makes me angry.

Same question: how about the BT stability?

Here you can find a bunch of really desperate 950(XL)(DS) users who are all waiting already for months to fix this finally:

Thanks for the update.

Would it be so hard to include a preliminary schedule with product codes, so we could have an idea when our specific phone might be targeted?

FWIW, W10M Build ".71" has seriously stabilized my BT car connection. Hopefully it will for you too.

Seconded! Would be great to see which combinations are released and which ones are live vs staging.

Not mine. Same terrible situations all two months I have 950XLDS. Even on last build.

Bummer. Well, let's hope this firmware will help you then. :)

FWIW, I did a hard reset (Settings > System > About > Reset Device) after updating to .63 a few weeks ago and getting the firmware. Maybe that helped me out along the way. I was having severe battery drain prior to that, and it went away too.

Good luck!

Aaaaaaand the poor sound quality of the back loudspeaker is still not fixed. The 5sec noise and click after a notification is played seems to be gone. But after pressing a keyboard key with keyboard sound on the 5sec noise and click does still appear after the keyboard tone is played.

There is still a noticeable "background" noise while a notification or what ever is played. The sound quality of the back loudspeaker is not crystal-clear. I really hope you get this fixed somehow.

I would advise those users to check the firmware update (when available for their phone) and report the result. The post is in German, so I just vaguely read it through. We are listening to the feedback and AFAIK BT connectivity problems are being investigated with priority. That being said, there are unfortunately no significant fixes for that area included in this particular update (otherwise it would have been listed in the "key improvements") . However I believe there should be some improvements for scenarios where the BT connection turns itself off during phone call. If the folks are still experiencing that type of issue, let us know!
