Hello everyone. I hadn't seen a thread yet from anyone with a 1520 that had decided to bite the bullet and install the latest GDR3 developer preview update.
I finished the install a little bit ago and decided to do some benchmarking to test out the differences from the 10517 build that already ships on the device. I had already noticed some performance improvements as noted in the news article on the front page, but I wanted to see if this was a placebo effect or a real performance change I was seeing. Sure enough there was a 6.4% performance difference in favor of the newer build.
Here's the before and after benchmark results.
Before (10517):....................................................................After (10521)

I had actually performed multiple runs (10) before and after the update and the results were fairly consistent. Some minor differences in score (like +/- 1 point) on the individual portions. So overall it should be indicative of the 6.4% boost I mentioned in the case of the AT&T 1520.

Well its maybe early days but can you check 2 things.
1/ is the touch screen any better, the whole swipe been picked up as a tap issue.
2/the horrible noise in low light videos....and lack luster all round performance with video (mainly low light)
Thanks in advance :-)

On the second issue, this is just an OS update, not a firmware or OEM software update...which is what would fix the camera issues.

My homescreen sees more stuttering with this update. It seems to have done more harm than good, either that, or my eyes are playing tricks with me. It did seem to make the scrolling smoother in web browsing though.
EDIT: seems better and smoother after a reboot

I originally had updated my Lumia 1020 to the Developer preview for GDR3 and i did it by using the app studio.
I forgot how to do it though for my 1520 lol
Any help would be nice :)
This new update is applicable for Att users on the 1520 correct?

Soo, I don't have a 1520, but I ran wpbench on my 1020 post-update, and the score is inline with non-updated 820/920/1020s with snapdragon S4. So, I don't think it made a difference on my end. Could you run sunspider 1.0.2 through the web browser and post a screenshot or tell us your score post-update?

Out of interest, asking long time Nokia owners, just how long do Nokia normally take to update new phones with a fix eg HD camera in low light, hit and miss touch on screen (worse for some people than others)
Saw on one forum that a guy who has a Nokia pal (unsure if true) said they are working on screen issue now.

Windows Phone Dev Center. On the site they have a full set of instructions. The link should be near the top right on that site. :)

That would be good news, it might take time before I see it in UK but if it does sort the issue then there is a fix on way....now just sort the crappy low light video recording and I am happy lol
