    Before the amber update, when I make or answer a call, the screen that has the 'End Call' button on it disappears when you hold the phone vertically. I assume this is done so you don't accidently click the 'End Call' button while talking. Since the update, it no longer disappears and I bump the button with my ear causing me to hang up on people.

    Is there a setting to change this? For now, when I am talking, I hit the home button before putting the phone to my ear.

    I'm not sure if it's glitching or not, because the text message ringer has been varying for me every since the update. Sometimes, it sounds a bit different. I'm not really sure how to describe it, a little lower pitched I think? But sometimes, it sounds normal, like before the update.
    I noticed all the sounds seem to be slightly different before and after update.
    Also noticing some apps don't seem to play well w the update. Have yet to be able to play jetpack joyride and not lock up the phone when ending the game. Very frustrating.

    I don't think Jetpack Joyrides problems have anything to do with the update. Pretty much everyone has had problems with it, whether updated or not.

    Last night I was in the passenger seat of a car and using my 928. It was dark with intermittent light from streetlights, houses, etc. The 928's brightness was set to automatic and the brightness levels were going crazy. Mostly the screen was way too dark and it would randomly pulse to bright, but not in time with the intermittent light coming in through the windows. I had to set the brightness to low. This has never happened before. Yesterday morning I downloaded and installed the Amber update. I suppose it could be a problem with the light sensor, but my feeling is that it has something to do with the software update. Anyone else have issues with automatic brightness levels in low light situations?

    I have not noticed any change in behavior specific to this since updating. When on a phone call the screen will still shut-off based if I bring the phone to my face. As long as anything comes near the proximity sensor the screen should shut-off.

    Since the update, the only difference I've noticed with the ambient light sensor is that the screen does appear to be dimmer when viewing in dim light or darkness. I haven't experienced any flickering like what you've described.

    My wife has the same phone and her screen also does not shut off when she brings the phone to her face.

    I have not had this issue. Have either of you tried rebooting your phone? Reading through these posts, it looks like a reboot or two has resolved some other issues.

    It's always a good idea to reboot the phone after every update. Just like on your computer when it says "These changes will not take affect until you restart your computer." The same principle may be in play here. These phones are mini computers. A reboot immediately following an update will help ensure any changes made to the OS take affect.

    I have also noticed that the screen is now darker in low light situations, making it more difficult to read while I am in bed.

    I have noticed a problem since updating with wireless charging:

    I put my 928 on my DT-900 when I go to bed each night with the ringer on pretty loud (I have to be available for work calls at night ). Since the update, I have been getting the "now charging" audio alert at seemingly random intervals during the night. I have looked around in the settings, but it seems you can't disable the charging alert. This never happened before the update.

    What I think is happening: I may be off here, but I think the phone disconnects from the DT-900 (or tells it to turn off charging) when it hits full charge, then idles under its own power, then reconnects when it needs to top off. Maybe when it goes to top off, it is now treating it as a new power source and playing the alert.

    Anybody else seen this (or know how to turn off the charging alert)? I haven't tried going back to wired power, but I will tonight.

    Did you enable "Double Tap to Wake"? I noticed that this messed up the proximity sensor when taking calls. Try turning this off.

    I had this same issue, I downloaded Nokia Collection and updated Display + Touch and Extra + info, which solved the problem.

    I have double tap (and peek) enabled and am not experiencing any issues with the proximity sensor.

    One day after I updated to Amber the screen of my phone became discolored, then after a few hours it went completely black. Sound notifications are still working but nothing is visible on the screen. Any ideas?

    So it had been reported that the Amber update would make the 928 Bluetooth 4.0 compatible. I have not been able to verify that this is now the case on my 928 after the Amber update. Has anyone?

    This hasn't been a problem before the update, only after. The tint is very yellow, like, "I just took a selfie and look like Homer Simpson." Is anybody else experiencing a similar issue? I emailed Stephen Elop about it and he said he would have some people check it out.

    I noticed that after the GDR2 update the start screen scrolling by dragging the finger looks kind of choppy, but when the screen scrolls by itself the movement is smooth.

    Do you have a screen protector applied? I do and when I slowly scroll, there is some fine friction between the screen and my finger, causing the screen to "stutter". But if the screen scrolls it is smooth same as yours.

    Thanks for the quick reply.
    The scrolling issue does not happen on the other screens (ie: wpcentral app).
