    Will the 520 get "tap to wake" or "glance screen" ?
    Are there any new settings ?

    What other features come with the black update ?

    Thanks in advance

    Glance screen isn't coming to the 520, however, double-tap to wake may. Though, with the update not out yet, there's no official word on either (but Nokia did say that, due to hardware issues, Glance won't be able to run on the 520. Hopefully that clears everything up!

    the best I can say is soon. and most likely last since its the lowest phone on the totem pole. It's been out, but rolling out starting with the newest/top phones.

    Developers do not have access to Black, unlike Update 3. I wish though.

    But the L525 has ALREADY released with black in many African countries. but if Nokia would stop being such a profit chicken it would be in south africa, a Nokia spokesman said that the reason the L525 is not in SA yet is because they don't want to discontinue the success of the L520

    Not sure but you guys should already have the L525 which is sold with black, so hopefully soon. But I'm not sure as I don't live in India.

    Even having 1gig is no guarantee. I have an 820 on black and the store says refocus is not available for my device. Camera was available straight away when black came out and Beamer a couple of days after. I thought we would get refocus too, but I get the feeling if we haven't got it by now perhaps we're not going to.

    Sorry a little excited, where do I begin.

    How well does double tap to wake work, can you tap anywhere on the screen for it to work or do you have to tap in the center ? Also is there any delay after you taped it twice for the screen to switch on ? (the LG G2 gives a small noticeable waiting period for this)

    Any glace screen ?

    Can you close apps from the app switcher ?

    Can you activate/deactivate auto rotate screen ?

    Is there Nokia pro camera ? (like on the 1020)

    Is there city lens ?

    Have you noticed any performance improvements such as speed, responsiveness or battery life ?

    Has the device become worse in any way ? Perhaps less battery life or slower loading speeds ?

    I haven't updated my phone yet, but I'll answer a few of your questions.

    Closing apps from the multitasking view is a part of Update 3, so we'll get that. Rotation lock is also a part of Update 3, so we'll get that. I've been using Nokia Camera Beta on my phone, so I'd say we have that already. Glance and City Lens will not be available due to hardware restrictions.

    I'll let people with Lumia Black answer your other questions.

    I see that the black update has released for the 520 in my country. But I want to avoid doing an OTA myself. In other words. I want to get a brand new lumia with black pre installed but I don't know how long I must wait for this.

    Does anyone know ?

    I have Lumia Black on my L520 and I can confirm it has Double Tab to Wake.
    The rest of the features are the same from Developer Preview.

    Hability to close individual tasks, rotation lock, driving mode, etc.
    About batery, I haven't notice any change. My mobile with bluetooth and Wifi on during the whole day with minimal use lasts more than 3 days easly.
    Performance wise, I can't really say anything. I bought a Nexus 7 2013 so I rarely use the L520 for anything other than calls and texts. However, it is still snappy as the first day I bought it.

    I still don't understand why the Lumia Black firmwire for the 520 has Glance in settings if its greyed out.
