    Updated my HTC 8X last night, very smooth download and install...the 920 will be next. It's always the little things...I'm loving the ability to individually close apps and the rotation lock. However, the rotation lock needs to be easier to get at before GDR3 goes mainstream, way too many steps to get to this feature. I want to see it right there on the screen when I press volume up/down like I would to set vibrate vs. ring for example. Perhaps it pops up on the side or top if you rotate the screen?

    I would also suggest moving the "X" to close apps to the bottom left corner so munchkins like me don't have to reach across the beautiful screen to close the app but hey...it still is awesome!

    I agree. There are a couple apps available that pin a shortcut to your desktop. As it is it's buried too deeply. The settings menu as a whole needs cleaned up.

    I thought the same thing. Actually swiping might be easier. But then, there's the Apple thing...

    At least sort them alphabetically, it's a real mess in there.

    So far so good. I updated my 1020 last night and I haven't noticed any major issues tbh.

    I noticed that the phone doesn't prompt closing an email, nor does it give you the option to save or discard.

    I updated to gdr3 preview about 4 hours ago and been using it constantly to see if everything worked. Everything is perfect so far, love the multitask close, it is so useful.

    And for anyone thinking of doing it, you don't need to install the certificate on your phone, from the email for app studio, i didn't and it worked. :)

    Mine does, but only if you add something to the e-mail. If you just open a blank e-mail and then hit close then it just goes away as it should since there's nothing to save or discard.

    Hey Guys, just updated to GDR3 a few hours ago. Everything went smooth.
    One thing everyone has missed is they have FINALLY fixed the music app!!
    Its butter smooth now, no more lags when selecting artists and absolutely no lag when swiping to the next song whilst playing.
    The screen rotation is cool but Im pretty bummed out that Pro Cam will only work in portrait, I mean, Come on!(when screen rotation is Locked, Portrait)
    And yes! All the live tiles seem to be updating.
    Im one happy camper!

    Just managed to get GDR3 on the phone, i like it :) Although i thought it would unlock the phone and not have the telstra branded software, so now i have to figure out if i can find a version of RM-875 firmware.
