I haven't had any problems post update. Most of the evidence you get here will be anecdotal though.

if your device is working the way you want it to and you dont need the wifi always on option, daytime photo's fix or reply to caller with text, then i'd say dont get it.
i didnt have rebooting issue before and dont have it afterwards.

Update. If it changes nothing or gets worse, perform factory reset with fully charged phone. Portico didn't do me any favors, but after factory reset, no reboots and excellent battery life. It will flash to Portico with factory reset, but a clean install seems to have resolved all issues I was having. I also reinstalled all my apps manually. Don't know if it had anything to do with it.

Or maybe there's a way for windows phone to re-download & re-configure itself like in its previous state before portico-updating?
Really appreciate it if anyone can share the tips & maybe link.

As it is the only sensible to update your phone, I would suggest you to do it, while preparing yourselves to troubleshoot all common errors reported here in the forum.
And the only way to fix them is to flash a fresh copy of portico, no way around.

if you end up resetting your phone, dont forget about windowsphone.com. you can get all you apps that you previously purchased sent back to your phone pretty fast. it's alot better than searching for each one in the store through your phone. on windowsphone.com its just 1 click for each app. make sure you have "find my phone" in your phone settings enabled. then after you're done you can turn it back off.

I hadn't any strange and annoying bugs before the update, anyway I decided to install Portico. It's working perfectly, I used it for a 2 days now: no battery drains, no reboots or anything strange.
I wanted to update because, living in Europe, it added also the LTE connectivity to our networks and in the official changelog it said it would also increase the battery life.
It kept all my apps and settings saved/installed, but I let the update goes for quite some time, maybe 30-40min, which is lot more than the 15min prompted when you decide to start it. Have to say I feared a freeze after some time, but I decided to wait and (maybe) I was lucky.

My (4th) 920 phone was working perfectly for the last month, 2 days battery life (light use) and never had a random restart.......That was until i downloaded the update 2 days ago and i have just suffered my 1st flat battery whilst at work today for no known reason, also, i just also experienced my first random restart!!
Hopefully, there will be another update along soon to sort out the bugs in this update!
