Windows 10 starts coming to existing Windows smartphones in a couple more months, with Microsoft recently confirming plans for December distribution. Between now and then, there’s still a lot of testing to be done, and just as it has for the past several months, that means relying on plenty of input from users like you, trying the latest Windows 10 builds on your phone as part of Microsoft’s Insider program and reporting any issues you run into. In some of those recent builds, users have started running into a particularly annoying glitch, and Microsoft reports that it’s currently working on getting to the bottom of it.

What makes this particular bug so insidious is that it’s slow to creep up on users: initially their phones work fine, but over time apps take longer and longer to load, sometimes crashing in the process.

The glitch appears to be affecting both Lumia 640 and Lumia 640 XL models, though users have also mentioned similar behavior with other handsets. Microsoft’s Gabe Aul reports that the company has been working on tracking down the source cause of the problem, but seems to acknowledge that it may be difficult to reproduce. As a result, Microsoft’s asking for additional user feedback in an effort to nail-down the specific situations under which this bogging-down behavior occurs – if you’ve run into something similar on your phone, Microsoft asks that you visit the thread linked to below and add your own account. Hopefully, two months will be more than enough time to get track down the source issue and resolve it.
