    GDR3 installed and working my my 8X. When it first updated, my email was not syncing. A quick restart fixed that. All the mentioned updates are there and working with no issue.

    The phone storage set up is much better. Now you can force delete temp files and jump the screen necessary to manage items that are using storage.

    I hope MS keeps the updates coming like this. 2-3 updates per year keeps us hoping for the next one.

    Here are the items still on my list:
    - Wireless printing
    - Notification center
    - More sound/volume controls (separate media vs phone)
    - Merge WP and Win8 stores
    - VPN access

    Am I missing anything?

    Decided to time the gears for benefit of others. Gears were done in 5 minutes sharp. Now data migration has started. Lets see how much time it gonna take.

    The app installation was quick (about the same as you report) on my 8X. Data migration probably took 10 minutes. It also ate 30% of my battery.

    Swype is one of the main things I first missed jumping from Android to WP. However, WP's predictive text has pretty much satiated that former craving.

    updated my lumia 920 to gdr3. its a hd screen as I know. it was rummuored and seen in a leaked video that lumia 920 will get 6 small tiles on screen or one large tile with small screen size. I could not adjust them . they are still the same. any idea is this a bug or nokia update will bring this feature ?

    I really want to know if Notifications are no longer 'hit and miss' in this update...

    Those are just dumb rumors. The 6 small tiles are ONLY for 1080p screens... In other words for future models...

    Had a chance to test Driving Mode on my way back to my Office after lunch. Even had a txt msg come in. Worked perfectly. I set to ignore texts and send a reply letting them know I was driving.

    Guys, can we please just minimize the 'Now downloading', 'Now Updating', 'Gears Window', 'Done Updating' comments and go straight to initial impressions?

    These comments will just flood the thread with the same comments instead of useful and more sane ones.

    I hope everyone would understand and agree. Thanks!

    So message notification for glance was not a part of GDR 3 after all.

    Three questions:

    #1) Can this be installed on more than one unlocked device using the same Dev account?

    #2) What happens if I update a device to GDR3, then reset the device and reboot using a different MS account?

    #3) Will this wipe out any Nokia Cinemagraphs on my device during the update? BTW, if you're a Cinemagraph fan (like me) you can "save" them by sharing via Tap&Share to another device before updates.

    I love the predictive text on WP, I just wish I didn't have to "re-teach" it every time I updated or switched to a new device. Having that file, and WiFi passwords move with me as went from device to device would be pretty awesome.

    Yeah since we have three different tile sizes possible it seems redundant to try to make the medium tile sizes smaller to squish more in sideways, that just makes them harder to see. If you want more across just utilize the small squares. It's not about packing as much as you can on the screen, it's about arranging properly glance-able data. This update does not give you a physically larger screen.

    This is totally not a big deal, but one thing I noticed was that "Find My Phone" in settings no longer erroneously reported as being "off" despite the contrary. Not a big deal but it always kinda bugged me.

    Glance updates will come as part of the Nokia Firmware Bittersweet Shimmer. The Glance update first required the OS update to work.

    It is part of bittersweet shimmer which is the firmware. GDR3 is the OS not the firmware and glance isn't part of the OS
