    I updated at midnight last night ๐Ÿ˜Š. Got the 100% hang just waiting about 5 minutes and it continued.

    First full day and no reboots and battery life is for way better.
    With wifi on constant.

    Only lost about 25% from 9 to 5.
    A few calls and texts and push email.

    Good update. I am pleased.

    The battery life actually sounds astounding for the usage you've posted.

    My wife updated her 8X here in the U.S. And now all sounds are disabled, except the keys when typing. She said all sound settings are on and the phone works otherwise; has anyone else experienced this? I'm going to check when I get home to make sure, but wanted to see if this is specific to her device or an issue with many. Thanks
    Update: the phone crackles a bit then doesn't play any sound and looks like its been happening on and off for two weeks now. Looks like its time to visit att, unless you guys have any suggestions.

    My wife got the update yesterday (Three UK). Facebook, Hotmail, Gmail, twitter and an imap account set to push where possible). She came home today with 75% or so left of her battery , while previously it was 50ish. May still be early to tell, but seems battery life has indeed improved.

    So AT&T has released the update, or is your wife using an unbranded version? Any word on Verizon yet?

    She is using an ATT phone and after taking to her again, I found out that her problem started last week. I also wasn't able to confirm that she received the OS update. She probably mistook an app update for the OS update.

    Congrats! lol I really hope it doesn't take long for it to get to Verizon.

    I'm going to wait another day or two to see if I should get mine replaced. I wish this update would roll out everywhere so I could test to see if it helps my battery before making a decision.
    My two week return period ends next week :/

    Reports of updates seem to have dried up, are people still getting them or was this a very small test distribution from Microsoft as opposed to a full blown roll out?

    Pulling down the update stops when the phone goes to sleep?
    My 8x started pulling down the update, and after 30 secs or so the phone went to sleep. I thought the update had been completely pulled down, and that the phone was re-booting itself. But nothing happened, so after some time I pressed the power button. To my surprise, the phone then woke up and continued pulling down the update. Now I have to sit here with the phone in my hand and touch the screen every time it dims, so the phone wont go to sleep. This is not really my idea of how it should work. I cannot remember having to do this on my Android-gear. Why wont MS look at how other devices work and take the best parts from there?

    EDIT: OK, so now the phone got 100% of the update down, and it has been stuck there for some time. Do I still have to watch the phone so it doesn't go to sleep?

    Be prepared for a long wait, O2 will have to test the update first, will probably take them several weeks, us O2 customers probably won't see anything before Christmas.

    There were a couple of HTC updates last week, and since then mine wont announce incoming texts any more !

    EDIT Forget that message, I feel like a right stupid $&^ !! Somehow it had gone onto to vibrate only instead of ring and vibrate. I had hoped that WP8 might have got a way around that happening I seemed to be always doing it on the WP7's I had ... yup am an ***** !

    This update is not in the US yet, so the first news come from all the Euro and Asian owners of the International version of the phone.

    Just checked my O2 8X and voila, update time. Hopefully it's the Firmware was well as the OS update.
