    Here you can mention any improvements for Lumia 1520 8.1 preview update 2 (2-June-2014)

    I have noticed noticeable Smoother and faster experience. What about you?

    Ever since the Display update it seems like the phantom touch bug is gone for me! Also agree in speed and smoothness. My experience with my 1520.3 has been getting better and better in the last two weeks with the recent updates. Not that this isn't the best phone I've ever owned already.. Here's to hoping the Music app keeps improving too cause the next updates is supposed to greatly improve it's start up time and quickness.

    The smoother & faster experience you reference is a function of reloading everything (after update). That's ALWAYS the case, question is how long does it last. As I just mentioned in another thread, Battery life may have been addressed (successfully), my battery is draining very slowly, even under heavy use (game). It'll take a couple of days (& some battery stats) to figure it out, in the meantime, enjoy WinPhone 8.1 (waiting for Lumia Cyan !).

    Are these incremental updates pushed once you've done the initial 8.1 install? (I get the phone Thursday).

    Not sure if it was the update, but Xbox Music doesn't open anymore. Aside from that I haven't noticed massive differences.

    Try to reinstall the App. It loads for me.

    Yes, they are incremental. Meaning you have to do an update 'check' after each one is done. It's a long process of waiting.

    The only visible difference is Cortana live tile. It can be pinned now, no more lags and/or battery problems with cortana pinned.

    Popping noise when seeking through video still isn't fixed. I had noticed a lack of phantom taps after the display update. Had a couple in the WPC app last night though.

    The initial 8.1 install will give you the latest build. You won't need to install WP8.1 three times.

    I noticed no change at all with this update on me 1520. I did manage to see the quiet hours settings by searching for them in bing, but that's about it.

    I will Pin Cortana again and test that out. I had random lockups with huge battery drain when I had Cortana pinned before.

    Nope. You won't get the latest. There have been what, 3 or 4 updates since the Developer Preview?

    You will have to download all of those in order by doing a check for updates on your phone after each one is done installing.

    If you go back to 8 and then install Dp 8.1 it will install the latest release

    That's not my understanding. If you think that's how it works, then that's fine. When you upgrade from WP8.0, you'll first get an update handler package installed, and then you get the latest WP8.1 build automatically download. I've never seen any reports of people having to re-check and download further incremental updates after upgrading the OS.

    Very strange... Installed an app called music hub tiles and with it I can open Xbox Music without a problem... Using the standard Music tile, doesn't do a thing...

    Could you possibly be pointed at the old version of music (I remember there was an article on this site just after the 8.1 preview release about how the old version of music was still buried deep in the 8.1 build and how to find it because the 8.1 version was so messed up) if so possible MS removed/disabled the old version as a housekeeping task in this update.

    Cheers

    I'm not sure if this is related to the new update, but when I took my phone off charge this morning, and checked it at 11:30 MST today, it was at 4%. I updated last night and had it charging all last night. I hope its just a one-time thing, but I will post updates if anyone else is having similar issues.

    My 1520 is quite a bit smoother with this latest update. They fixed the scrolling lag that was introduced with the first update to windows phone 8.1. Before the first update everything was smooth, but with first update really messed me up. The second seems to be better than the original pfd 8.1. I am very happy with it.

    Haven't seen any major changes with this update, but a little smoother and no stuttering or freezing. I also think the Bluetooth audio pickup in my car on phone calls is better, which, if it holds, will be much appreciated. I had a few instances where the call wouldn't hang up in the car. But I didn't see this on the ride back.

    I installed it yesterday afternoon and experienced a bug in the morning that had recently cropped up, where my emails weren't displaying properly. They would be listed in the inbox but when you tried to open them only the header text would display, with the body of the email in blank, Refresh would bring down new emails to the device, but with the same blank condition. A soft reset fixed the problem. I will give it a day or two to see if this settles away.

    I took about an hour and a half ride this afternoon with Scout GPS Navigator running, and with the 1520 plugged into the car charger and it still lost charge steadily and ran hot after I got out of the car.

    When I've updated my Blackberry with a beta or leak, there was usually a breaking in period of about a day after which the OS would become noticeably smoother, quicker and more stable (at least for the good builds). I think there was some actual technical reasons that this was true, and not just my subjective delusion. I don't know if an update like this on WP has a similar breaking in period though, but my sense is that it does.

    Well, I only have last night as an example but to me it seemed that every night xbox music would revert to volume level of 13, last night it did not (I connect external speakers and I don't think I knows the difference between earbuds or speakers) could be a fix in this build.

    Cheers

    I must be lucky, mine only keeps getting better and better. Still checking for the "phantom" tap though, has always plagued me.
