    Ha ha ha! Well I was a little excited but it's mainly because of FM Radio which I am a huge user of and of course the "Other" memory bug. ;)

    didn't notice any change to the other storage management. make some space app is still useless and cleaning temp files does nothing.

    C'mon... Let's face the facts : HTC 8S is a low memory phone and no OS update will correct this, unless it will allow to store the application data on the memory card. This is sad, but it's true. And it's very strange that Microsoft cannot propose any solution like this; back in my Android days I had a phone which had 512 MB available for applications but I was keeping ofer 12GB application data (mostly for Gameloft games) on the microSD card... still having over 320MB from these 512MB free for next installations.

    I manually updated my 8S to GDR2 and i am in the UAE. My phone, which was previously perfect, now sucks - and badly. it keeps restarting even when its not in use .... for first few days it restarted may be like 25 times. Later on i realized that Facebook application is one of the sources so there goes fb, the situation is better now. Still 5/10 restarts a day!

    Tried hard reset but it appears that the ROM is flashed because it shows GDR2 even after resetting (which shouldn't be technically possible). I would strong recommend to avoid this update on 8S because memory does not seem to have improved as well.

    1. The GDR2 is permanently stored on the device so it's normal behavior and technically it should be so,
    2. The only improvement that would help a 4GB device is the one that would allow to store more data on the SD card. Like maps, application data and so on.

    We will get GDR3. But we won't get Nokia's firmware update.

    Running GDR2 since last night, no hiccups, no restarts, and no Data Sense :P

    Radio is good, seems to work faster. I now have Halo: SA Lite on it and it is awesome, similar experience on my Surface RT.

    I had soft reset my phone before I have downloaded the update, then reinstall the apps so that I could have more space. ^^

    How, then, can you call it a reset? By definition factory reset should put the device back to the point when it was released from the factory. Makes no sense that original (stable) OS gets overwritten in ROM and you therefore lose any possibility of getting the system back to its premium shape. Why would you reset it otherwise?

    Hey guys,
    I just received GDR2 in Delhi, India (Vodafone)
    Everything is working fine, my phone is performing smooth, Radio is working nicely.
    "Make more space" app from HTC has an option to clear temp files now.
    No Data Sense though.
    No issues and errors on phone as if for now...
    Free space has also increased on the phone.
    All and all i'm loving GDR2...
