    I really only notice noise in the live view, the picture doesn't have any more noise than before even with the built in. I've compared before and after images, the same ISO, same scene and expose on a 26 " monitor and they both look the same on a Samsung widescreen 26-inch LED monitor that cost over $600.
    Hmm interesting, for some reason I notice that pictures I took with default settings seems more yellow-y. I don't know if its just my eyes or what. I think I'll have to do some comparing too.

    Seems the same. Listing does not show difference in version number (still 1326) and no additional feature. If there were any, it should be a different number. Now onto the 1328 firmware!!! Lol. j/k
    thanks again,
    just a question though, if there was a little bit of change, how would i go about updating it to the official?
    would i need to manually install the past firmware(1250) and be able to update ota?
    sorry im very new to windows phone.

    I'm not familiar with how WP implements the update check, if it's something like hash check (like torrents, passwords) or by simple version lookup... If it's the latter, it would be sloppy programming to use the same version number but with different features.

    Hmm... I didn't see FM Radio appearing on my 810 post-update. Not a big deal, though, because there's always iHeartRadio.

    I just tried twice to get it via my 810, but no dice as I'm getting an error. Oddly, the page will load on my 920, but of course I'm unable to re-download it on that phone (had it back in late June but uninstalled couple of weeks later after it didn't work).

    Restart the phone, then check under Music.

    I thought glance was supposed to show notifications (text, email, etc). All I see is the time and charging symbol (as it charges). Did I miss something?

    FYI, Just checked Nokia Smart Cam, Nokia Video Trimmer, and Nokia Video upload and they were all available for download on my 810. Pro cam was not.

    apparently. Glance only displays time and ringer mode.

    Sorry. I thought that would do it. Strange that the 810 doesn't have FM.

    If you try the 64Gb SD cards again, let us know the result.

    I talked to a "Dion " @ T Mobile support last night about a problem syncing my E-mail (Had an error code ) and out of the blue he mention the grd2/amber update should be released in about 2 weeks and to keep looking for it ! ....I hope that this is a good sign that we will get the update . So I will wait a couple weeks more before I flash my phone .
    You, sir, gave solid information instead of cryptic messages, and I applaud you...just got home after a long day of work...this is good news...I can have a working phone, which is what I paid for. I see the thread has been busy...I haven't read all the replies yet but I already saw one from someone who didn't say ish patting themselves on the back.

    So...having finally gotten the update, I have mixed reviews.

    I like the double tap feature more than glance. Glance in its current state is useless to me as it doesn't show anything important. Double tap allows me to not use the power button as much to wake the phone, so that's more up my alley. Wish you could double tap to turn the screen off while on the lock screen too, but I guess some would say I'm asking for too much. I like the addition of color adjuster, although I liked my oversaturated colors (especially on the emerald theme). Smart cam finally works...had it installed when it was first launched before they blocked it from installing on the old portico update.

    Overall it is a refresh and I will put it through its paces during tomorrow's commute. But I haven't seen anything that was worth flashing beforehand to get. My Other is still a healthy 2GB, although I should do cartwheels now that I saved about 800MB from it. Guess I need to look into that one more.

    Personally, I'm more surprised that GDR2 came out on my Lumia 810 before my VZW 8X. To those who dropped cryptic clues about us getting this update, get a grip. You said nothing that was worth patting one on the back for. The only person I can possibly give a pass to as an "insider" was wazzupppp. Your inside information hasn't explained why there is no FM radio in the update. While it is possible you could be actual insiders, surely you see how counterproductive cryptic and very vague hints to a jilted user bade can be. Its the internet so people are free to do as they please, but I can say my cynicism has grounds in how lax t-mo has become some areas of its customer support.

    As proven in the grand scheme of things GDR2 & 3 are scheduled as minor,updates. I'm curious to see how 8.1 roll out is handled. I just admit, the most ironic thing I read on WPCentral today was Daniel writing about the "discounted but popular" 810 in his post on Amber updates launched for the 810 & 521. If the 810 was so "popular", why'd they discontinued it? Guess Amber has now made us be 60k 810 owners instead of the less than 50k?

    I've got over a gig of free space but keep getting an error message and it won't download...might have to hard reset before I can update.
