    I'm an htc 8s owner too. I like it very much as a phone but the "other" folder issue makes it unusable. Still, nobody talks about it.

    Microsoft know about this problem, but haven't comfirmed it yet as a "problem" that needs to be solved, but the other folder is like a cache, and cache is used to make Windows Phone 8 Fast, it is responsible why all your apps renember your login stuff, and where u left off, information of apps, etc. Yes, they should make a "Clean" Feature soon, but it will effect the spped. A temporaly solution is rebooting your phone, it clears a lot of it. Will post update if something comes up, but as vinscg told Shrink Storage update is very nice.

    I'm using HTC 8S, i update it but i don't have radio. Someone help?!
    Are you sure you installed everything? When I updated, I had to install it twice. Try going for manual update again, if not it should be in the Music+Video app

    Sounds like a low-space problem, did the download fill up your memory?

    Mine definately feels more laggy. Animations stutter and sometimes the phone freezes for a few seconds. Also there is a considerable battery drain, even with battery saver on. Moreover, the phone reboots 4 to 5 times a day. Prior to GDR2 I never had these problems. I have the phone since February. However just a few hours ago I shut the phone down, removed the SIM card, cleaned it and put it back as I suspect it has something to do with the SIM card. Right now, the lagginess seems gone and also the battery drain seems less severe. Also I haven't had any reboots so far, but I keep my fingers crossed. Nothing is more annoying as a phone that you can't trust.

    Similarly, I had an impression that my 8S is a bit slower... now it's maybe better, but the overall impression is strange.
    And yes, the battery drain looks significantly worse !

    Same here. It's slower, and the latitude of gps is still "jumpy" (unusuable for sport tracking)...

    Hasn't lagged for me after the update but I've got this annoying issue with headphones that randomly it starts turning the sounds to static after GDR2. No matter what headphones I use. Just pausing and continuing fixes it for a while before it returns. Haven't tried disabling beats audio yet, will have to see if disabling that fixes it.

    Confirmed getting the update for 8S on Vodafone in UK, but can't say it's helped with the space issues very much. Despite just doing a factory reset, having no documents/pics and only 100Mb of apps, I still only have 450Mb space.

    Definitely make sure you update the Make More Space app though, it was useless before but you can now apparently remove temporary files (effectiveness yet to be seen) and gives you a better view of how much each app takes up.

    Did you know the stock HTC app uses 51MB of space? O_o

    Noticed one more change.
    Previously XP couldn't detect WP and it was labeled as "Camera". But now it detects phone properly and shows it in explorer just like Windows 7/8.

    Also from the splash screen "Quietly Brilliant" is removed under HTC logo.

    Wait a few days for the Beats Audio update, it solves this problem.

    That would be great, I'll have to check under my XP !
    And well... HTC is no more "brilliant" ;-) ?
