    It got a little bit better. My phone on GDR2 cleared some space on its own, from 1,7GB free space to 2,5GB free space. But other is still 5,2GB in size on my device. But after the update, the "make more space" app from HTC got a "clear temporary files" option. But it didn't worked and I wanted to reinstall the app, but the marketplace is having troubles now...

    this tells me that the update rollout will be put on hold. This is the 3rd or 4th post I've seen on this.

    No noticeable changes after the updates... although it took 30 minutes for the update to download and install.

    some news for the other storage?
    I measured out the Other section
    before updating - 3.3 Gb
    Immediately after the restart during installation (step in the migration data) - 2,65 Gb
    Rebooted the phone manually, after complete installation - 2,4 GB

    And all :(

    I was trying to install Nokia exclusive apps, i made some changes on phone after this update. Maybe it causes to that (install root certificate for Fiddler2...).


    edit: problem solved itself and I installed Here Drive+ and other Nokia exclusive apps :)

    There's no "other" storage fix as far as I can see. HTC has updated their "Free Some Space" app, which now has the option to free some temporary files.

    O2 UK Unbranded, got the update and installed successfully, yay!

    Thoughts and Issues and other things Noticed:
    • Option in the Settings > Camera and Photos to change default camera app is very cool, though unsure what app I'd use as none are showing up right now. Any suggestions for good alternatives?
    • Got FM Radio, have no use for it but it's there...
    • Installed the 'Make More Space' app following the update but for some reason it only shows my temporary files as 40MB when the 'other' folder in the main settings page is showing over 3GB...
    • No Data Sense, this is the only part of the update that I was interested in and it's not there. Absolute crap...


    Overall, it's shocking the amount of work not put into this release, it's been six months since the last update and this is all there is to show for it?

    I get that they want to save all the big changes till 8.1 because clearly there are big Windows RT shaped changes coming to WP over the next couple of years but that's no reason not to add more stuff in to the current version and make life better for the current users...

    Hopefully GDR3 will actually bring something useful rather than just enable niche features and new devices most people will be unable to buy due to being in an existing contract or due to exclusive agreements...

    But yay for HTC shipping this out so quickly! While it's a shame they don't support the ecosystem as well as they could do, they're always timely with the official updates and it's much appreciated.

    Yeah, Data Sense should have been made available. My Samsung Ativ S is still waiting for its update and we might not even get FM Radio.

    GDR3 possibly brings Notification Centers and advanced multitasking on November-December 2013, remember Lumia 920 that runs Windows Phone 8.1 which compiled at May 2013.

    The Data Sense feature is enabled by the carriers, not Microsoft. If the carriers don't want to bear the cost of implementing the feature, they won't.

    Enabling/disabling WiFi is definitively quicker, which comes in handy with "Network Dashboard" or other WiFi toggling live tile apps.

    Data sense is carrier dependant still so even though its now enabled with gdr2 the carriers still have to allow it. Im on the Beta for the O2 version of data sense and its pretty good and very helpful when im tethering my RT. Maybe start petitioning your carriers to sort it out.

    I really don't get this.
    Why do they do this. Make datasense available for everyone. The Phone can registered his one data use and set possible limits for who wants this.
    Why do they need approved make from the providers?

    Don't want to say this, but android does has it too. come on

    Just installing the update reduced my "Other Storage" from 4.8 GB to 2.5 GB (which I think is a good thing). After I read the news on WPCentral about the manual deletion of temporary files I installed Make More Space. In the app it shows 56.10 MB, nothing happens when I tap, there's nothing in the options directly.

    And I have FM radio now, which I will never use.

    So that's the update for me. Of course, after the download it was staying at 100 % percent for over 15 minutes or so, so I went to bed. Sometime in the night I woke up, went to the toilet, and started the update when passing by my phone, and somehow I must have hit something with my little toe. The toe is now blue and swollen and hurts like hell, which meant I wasn't able to go to work today. That's what the update did for me ;-)

    This GDR2 Update is a JOKE! Only the radio (who was in WP7), and some bugs I had hoped solved aren't solved. A JOKE! No other term to describe it :-((
