    First day with the update - I can say I notice improvement on the battery life. However, I experienced a new problem - instead of rebooting, the phone just turned off once... I hope it won't happen again.

    Got the update today, it got stuck at 100% for a while but suddenly I got a popup to install. 10 minutes later update finished without a hitch.

    It's at this point that I seriously regret my lack of impulse control. Every year, I vow that I will never buy a carrier branded (locked) device, instead opting for a fully unlocked phone from Expansys or Clove or similar. Last year, I stuck to my guns and picked up my un-sullied Titan from Clove. This year, all the excitement of WP8 overwhelmed me and I succumbed at the O2 store on the first day of 8X availability in the UK and now have an O2 branded 8X which no doubt means that I will not get this nice new update for several months while O2 "test" and "validate" it on their wonderful network. Shame they don't do as much testing on their network infrastructure which has fallen over catastrophically TWICE this year!


    Ah well.....................
    I think with the UK carriers, it doesn't take much longer. All our networks are the same so it doesn't require extra testing. Of course, I always go SIM-free anyway so it isn't an issue for me. But you should get it soon. I've not read issues of UK carriers holding back updates.

    Just to add, I have a Three branded handset and I managed to download the update this morning. :)

    I suppose I should find something better to do with my day than sitting here clicking "check for update" every ten minutes -- especially as I have "tell me when" and "automatically download" both checked :)

    A word of warning. Some people are finding the text-to-reject-call new feature in the update isn't working. The setting is there but no button appears on the incoming call screen:

    This is normal.

    In order for it to work, the number has to be in your Contacts list, and has to be a mobile number.

    You should probably update the blog post to clarify that it works but it needs to know the caller is calling from a mobile number and n your contacts.

    Yes. Quite a big battery life improvement. Would say 10 to 15% less use per day, maybe more.

    The battery improvement is substantial.... From 08:20 to 21:26, I am at 44%. All day on Edge, used GPS for 8 hours, 30min Bluetooth, used WiFi auto-on and surfed, texted for a good 3 hours... Plus two 10min phone calls. I removed Skype however. Have 1 Exchange, 2 Hotmail, 1 Gmail and 1 pop account plus Facebook. Accounts are Push. 30, 60, 120 and on demand. Plus I installed 1 app. This is a very good update!
