    Just to confirm - just got the update myself on my Lumia 800.

    I'm on Orange/EE in the UK. So, other UK people might want to check if they've got it too.

    I also finally got the 7.8 update last night for my SIM free Lumia 800 (O2UK sim). Installed 4 updates and took about 1 hour, everythings seems to be working fine.

    Finally updated my smurf blue Lumia 800 on Telus (in Canada) to 7.8. It took 5 updates (as it included the March fix-up as well) and I'm on version 7.10.8862.144. Wouldn't say it's much worse than 7.5 but there does seem to be a slight delay from the tap to the actual opening of the app.

    You're not missing out on much. I already found two annoyances that weren't there before:
    1. Slight delay from the tap to the opening of the app
    2. And this one irks me the most, when I receive a text, the music controls automatically swipe down when the screen turns on, obscuring the text above, so much for glance and go. I need to wait for the controls to slide up to see the text -.- Is it like this in WP8 as well?!

    I dunno, I'll take the resizable tiles (particularly Amazing Weather in particular), the new zune animation (single and double wide) and the overall improved layout from the tiles for efficiency in scrolling; over a slight hit in performance. I mean really, it's like 0.5 to ~1 sec difference.

    I'll give you your 2nd point, since I haven't directly experienced that issue, but I also preferred the music controls on lock screen in 7.5.

    What's this Zune animation, haven't seen it. :S The thing with the music controls happens only when I'm listening to music and receiving the text. if I'm not, the controls don't slide down but they also don't show up directly on the lock screen.

    Right, I don't listen to music too often on my phone.That's an interesting issue, wonder if more people have had it.

    The Zune animation is only a small change, but for me it is certainly more "flashy". Before it would just pan and zoom the artist picture, but now it has artist name rolling across screen and similar transition of the Zune logo to that of the XBOX games tile. It looks more appealing to me.

    On a side note, I noticed that when browsing a page in Internet Explorer, when you reach the bottom of the page and press the back button it will send you back to the top of the page. But this only happens sometimes. Has anyone else noticed this?

    Its like having a new phone and wanting your old one back lol im not enjoying the 3 year long delay after tapping a tile. And the battery that only lasts 10 hours since 7.8 update is extremely irritating
