    got cyan yesterday night. Took 2-3 hours to install over Wi-Fi . Still getting used to it.
    1)First the home screen wallpapers. It's great but the con is that half apps I pin on my home screen doesn't support it but I have reordered the apps such that top half shows wallpaper. Hoping more and more apps support transparent tiles.
    2) swipe keyboard : Typing this long post on it, actually swiping it.๐Ÿ˜‰
    3) notification centre : Convenient addition though they could have enabled more shortcuts. But tremendous improvement from wp8.
    4) files : File manager by Microsoft is average but third party apps are better. Metro file manager I bought in wp8 gained many new features actually better access , now don't have to change the subtitles name every time I load one video from pc.
    5) many small improvements like being able to set s screen time out to never if needed. Previously it was 5 mins max I guess.
    6) temp files : Actually its getting really deleted when I press delete button. Hope it stays that way lol and the dumping of temp files stop โœ‹.
    There are tons of new small stuff which improves user experience nicely. Still finding it out.
    From India so haven't got Cortana.
    And finally cyan feels better optimized for Nokia 1520 .

    You guys in India are so lucky... We are at the mercy of AT&T and while they said that they will start pushing Cyan this week. I need to see it to believe it.

    It wasn't there in black for me so must be a feature of cyan irrespective of models.

    Main issue: Ghost is playing with my Lumia. (the lock screen is moving up and down, apps are opening by their selves) on the other side the camera is way better and super fast! I was on 8.1 DP and it was better overall.

    Wow complete opposite for me. No more screen issues, heating, Wi-Fi dropped issues.

    Did you factory reset. I did before updating.

    Small bugs present .I have noticed that double tap to wake is not flawless like before. Sometimes screen doesn't respond to double taps which never happened with black.
    Email didn't sync today and I rebooted the phone. WPC app tile is not showing notifications but I'm not sure its cyan coz the app crashed and didn't update the tile even in WP 8.

    No real camera improvements that I can see but video seems sharper. Also compared beta and non beta camera apps and the beta definitely is better. I still get mini wobbles and shaking in videos. I think the optical image stabilization is just not that good compared to my 1020.

    It wont be fixed. This is what happens with high sensitivity screens.
