    Funny you say that, as battery life is what I'm looking out for as well. I haven't had this phone long at all and my old Lumia 800 which supposed to have shorter battery life, easily gets more than my 920. So hopefully it improves for me with this update.
    I'm noticing massive battery improvements, wasn't expecting that at all. Better than Glance, DoubleTap, DataSense, FM Radio, and the rest this is the best thing about GDR2 for me. I went to bed last night at 12, phone was at 99%. I put Glance & Double Tap on, and when I got up at 8am, it was still at 99%! I don't even know how that is possible. I'm currently keeping it off the charger just to see if I can actually get it to drain. If this lasts it'll make a massive difference to my phone usage. If only they could have had this when the phone came out almost a year ago... (couldn't be all positive!)

    I too did the early server update, but my phone became fraught with problems, probably from the Nokia extras etc...
    So I downgraded back to 1308 then let the phone do OTA to Amber and all is hunky dory even with Nokia extras.

    I am not noticing any significant improvement in battery life... hope that changes with time.

    Do you have the green-tint camera problem still? You can check by taking a pic with Pro Cam and immediately viewing it, you should see it change right before your eyes

    How did you downgrade? If I try and put the 1308 fw into Products/rm-821 folder, in NCS it still shows as 2021 and tried to download more stuff

    @MrWhiteman.

    I don't get green, but a "warming" light glow, more pinkish than yellow.
    I've been messing with the FW before and oddly, I found the first time I went from 1308 > 2021, I had no camera tint. I then reflashed again from another PC with 2021 and voila!, yellow tint.
    Now it won't go, but since it's a know about and easily corrected issue, I'll just wait for the bug fix.
    As to getting back to 1308, I previously flashed via NSU for Retail when 1308 was out and it stores the package on your PC. I knew once the next update was out, I wouldn't be able to download it anymore.
    I then deleted the 2021 FW from it, leaving only 1308.
    Loaded up Nokia Care Suite and installed 1308 via the recovery option. You have to flash as a dead phone though by holding Vol. down & Power til it starts the process. Went in no problem.
    Hope that helps.

    I have no yellow/green tint in the image processing stage... Pro cam works a charm for me!

    I have no problem either, and as has been said Pro Cam is fantastic. It seems to me the only people who are having camera issues are those who flashed the ROM...

    I flashed back to 1308 and installed Amber the official way so we'll have to see! Can you take a screenshot immediately after taking the picture and then another screenshot of the picture viewed in camera roll?

    Please someone confirm if the green tint problem is there or not? If they manage to fix it then its time to flash again for me ;)

    So you dont see any change in tint of the pics seconds after taking the pic? If that so then its awesome. Now only if someone who has flashed the ROM can confirm this too. Then I'll flash it happily

    I had the update OTA last night on an EE UK Phone. I've done a couple of quick pics with the Pro Cam, taking a screenshot when it's saving the image, then of one afterwards just viewing it from within Pro Cam. I've posted them here. Let me know what you think. They are both fairly closeup, but I think the pics have turned out fairly well, but I haven't used it much at all yet, so time will tell. I think I need to try it in some different lighting conditions next.

    no, i haven't been able to shoot in all conditions yet but even indoors under horrible light, ProCam certainly captures what i see on the screen.

    I've a unbranded phone, so is there any risk or drawbacks i should be worried about if i decide to flash with EE UK ROM? And can someone provide the direct download links? VIA Nokia care it takes a lot of time.

    The effect is irrelevant to the lighting conditions. When you take the pic, you are bound to notice it if its there. The pic would get some yellow tint and sharpness would reduce too. If that is not there then it is awesome news for everyone. Specially those who like to take a lot of pics

    Anyone else have battery issues updating?

    My phone downloaded the update, rebooted, then got stuck looping between the empty battery, and Nokia splash screen.

    After 20 minutes of trying plugging it into various chargers, I soft reset (volume down + power), and then it sorted itself and finished the update.

    What made it worse, when it did sort itself, my battery was 3/4 full, so goodness knows what happens.

    Next time i'll reboot my phone before updating!

    Im in the other boat ;( battery life for me today has been awful. I left work with 38% remaining (its usually at 60%), 1 hour later with no use (other than push email every 30 mins, weather updating, glance off) im at 22%. So all in all, my battery life has degraded since the update! Really hope it sorts itself out!
