    Just done the gdr2 update on the wife's UK 1520 phone has just downloaded the W10 update but I declined to install it as I don't want to try it yet. My question is can you delete the download and we're to find it on the phone, also will install or not now option keep popping up.

    Definitely strange I wasn't expecting it! It has new settings menu but cannot find reset protection, perhaps that is hardware specific?

    Reset protection is only available. From Windows phone 10 Technical Preview. I have it on my Lumia 1020 with WP 10.

    It will keep popping up until you either install it or wipe the phone. Should have turned off automatic downloading after the GDR2 update.

    These are the changes I noticed so far, are there any I've missed?
    - New settings menu
    - App permissions (in settings)
    - The arrow at the bottom of start now says "All apps ->"
    - Seems faster (no realy typing and scrolling feels as smooth as it was before Denim)

    I purposely use Windows Insider app to download GDR2 and while it is downloading, I uninstalled Windows Insider app as I wouldn't want it to update to Windows 10 Technical Preview.
    So far my 1520 is rock solid stable and it does seems faster!
    I got a Lumia 920 spare phone which I already updated to the technical preview. Major set back for me is the Photos app totally sucks big time which is holding me from updating my main phone to it.

    Is there any way to force GDR2 on my 1520, reverting my phone back to 8.1 after having upgraded to 10 a few times, but every time join my phone to the fast track it directly downloads Windows 10 and not Update 2. Anyone have any thoughts?

    The only people who are getting GDR2 have Windows Insider App with an R2 build. Apparently. I have no idea who or how people are getting this build. I have 3 phones and they all got R1, which goes right to W10.

    Is there anyway to dupe the upgrade process like there was earlier on to get Win10 on unsupported devices, to get GDR2 on R1 devices?

    Not that I know of. I wonder if you could sideload an R2 build version... I dont have dev tools or whatever to sideload, though.

    Seems like in WP7.5 you could sideload a small number of apps for free before you had to pay... Dunno how that works, now.

    Xda-developers might have info, I didn't bother to check.

    Remember guys, if you didn't get gdr2 and went to 10, you already have almost all gdr2 features anyway. Except for the new settings look and the "all apps" on the start screen.

    That's true, but some of us just didn't want 10, as is. Plus, who knows, Update 2 could have also brought undocumented optimizations.

    What is the issue with the photos app?
    - It loads new pictures very slow.
    - Can't select specific Month/year to view by tapping the date.
    - No album view
    - When viewing a photo, the Edit button cannot let us select to use which app for image editing. For photography enthusiast, this is very important.
    - The app randomly crash or sometimes won't even launch.
