    I think I've noticed a couple of cases where single taps were detected as double - especially while web browsing. I turned my touch sensitivity down to 'normal' again about 2 hours ago and will see if that improves it.Outside of web-browsing - I have not noticed any more swipes-as-taps problems. Again, I'm holding on before saying "it's fixed for me" until it's been a few days.Never had brightness or wifi/cellular/bluetooth issues either.

    I noticed that my 1520 with shattered digitizer no longer randomly goes to Bing search whenever it wants. It was so annoying!
    I guess I don't have to get the screen replaced now.

    After 24 hours I have found that the screen sensitivity issues is much improved. I have only had one click since the update. Scrolling the screen up and down is much smoother. Double Tap to wake works much better, but is still not 100%. I also found that the battery life in the last 24 hours was better than before, but I'll need another day or two to verify. I also have the 2 second or so delay when plugging into a charger, but I don't see it as an issue.

    I would expect those changes to land with the consumer release of 8.1.

    What firmware version do you have? Some regions received a similar firmware back in January.

    I had the January update. My current FW is 1028.3562.1402.1001, but 1028.3562.1407.1001 seams to be the latest, according a post in last page. Is this the AT&T/US-equivalent of my FW?

    My scroll as tap is better but not gone. The brightness is fixed. I don't use double tap to wake. But now I get a delayed click out of my speaker when I hit the the power button to put the phone in standby, unlock my phone and when I get a Facebook messsge while in the new Facebook messenger app. It never did that before the firmware update so it's not the phone. Rebooted many times. Tried a soft reset and that worked for some hours. I am not sure how many since I was not using my phone the whole time. Maybe 5 or 6.

    It is very annoying. The scroll as tap is about 50% better sometimes while other times it seems better than that but it definitely is not gone. How long do you think we will have to wait for new firmware to actually fix it? I am on normal sensitivity.

    I don't know. I feel like ever since the last update this week, my phone has been worse. I don't use double tap, but even when I press the power button to wake, it takes longer now to wake up. I just now am hearing the random popping within the speaker, and I'm also still getting the screen issue when I scroll down on things. I don't know, I was hoping the update was a surprise WP 8.1 for 1520 users but I was definitely dreaming haha. Now I'm almost debating on swapping for new 1520 at the warranty place.

    did the update and crashed my SD card after that. the phone just wouldn't read my SD card; and since it wouldn't read it, i couldn't even tap to format it.
    i had to do a hard reset and THEN format the SD card. now it's back to working but whoa, what a waste of time.
    also strange and could be unrelated, the Bing Weather live tile is not live anymore. just the static sun and rays on my start screen.

    Indeed. It's all part of the 1028.3562 series.

    It is obviously newer, but likely specifically for the RM-940 since it carries some different hardware.

    That sucks! I guess I got lucky. Mine was fine. I have 48GB of music, videos and pics on it. I would not have been happy to have to reload all of that. I do have the SanDisk Extreme Plus card that I was told to use in these forums. I don't know if that makes a difference.

    Wait.. You hard reset your phone? Do you think the card was actually crashed or the phone was messed up and couldn't read any SD card? Did you have another card to try?

    Could you take the card out and try it in a computer or even another persons phone? If it was unreadable then format it there? It's exFAT format. That's how mine came and I just formatted one exFAT on my Surface Pro last week. An Android could do it I WOULD THINK if you don't have an adapter or slot for your computer. I don't use Android but I don't see why they would use another format. Anything but a hard reset. I avoid those like the plague.

    I know it's too late now but just in case that happens again or if anyone else has the same issue I would try that first before a hard reset.

    Tap/scroll actually seems even more borked than before.



    And then there's this strange thing that happened today...pulled my phone out of my pocket to answer a call and this is what it looked like



    While there are some minor annoyances, I still find the windows phone a better fit for my use. I have had a dozen phones over the past four years and have enjoyed the 920, 928, and now the 1520 head and shoulders above every iProduct and Android product I have ever owned.



    I can say the loud pop is gone. But that's all I see fixed. Maybe, maybe my WiFi is better?



    Edit, the picture uploaded does not reflect what I saw. The screen was zoomed in, about 10x, on the left top corner.

    After updating mine seemed to be running better. No more swipes read as clicks and the brightness was fixed. Then the next day it froze on me twice in a row. Since then it's pretty much back to how it was. The swipes might not read as clicks as much but the britness issue is back the same. I'm just glad it hasn't froze anymore.

    I was going to wait to see more reviews of the update but I bit the bullet and updated last night. Brightness has definitely been fixed which is a relief and the tapping issue happened to me only once so far. No issues to report but today is going to be my first full day with the update so I'm going to be checking how the battery life is. I did notice faster speed tests and full bars in my house whereas I was only getting 3-4 at most. I'm worried the stronger RF performance might make for worse battery life as has been reported. SD card is fine after update and no crashes or freezes yet.

    so you're going to get a whole new phone because one feature on the phone doesn't work perfectly? Sounds like you need to be an iPhone user.

    Oh please..one feature?! It's one of the core features of any smartphone and it is incredibly annoying when it doesn't work correctly.
