    So.... Right now, after the update, I have beautiful... GREEN tint.

    Initially my phone had purple tint. To have grays gray I had to set to maximum green in the display settings. Then, due to other issues, my screen was replaced with a new one. Without any problem. To purple tint, no need to change display settings, neutral were just fine.

    But since last update things gone wrong. Everything is green, when neutral. I have to shift to purple to have grays gray again. I suspect that update released by Nokia uses IMEI or other kind of hardware number to determine screen colour calibration. And my phone fits into "needs more green" series without knowing that my screen was already replaced to a new one, which doesn't need it...

    Already contacted Nokia Care, however no solution found. Yet...

    Or maybe you all are wrong? Maybe you all have the same problem as I do? No purple. But green...

    Thank you very very much! Honestly i was an heavy android user for almost 6 years i only had Android phones, but right now only 24 hours after using my Lumia 930 i feel very happy and the UI is just absolutely stunning! I like how things are working and the Lumia 930 feels like a very high quality device when you hold it in your hand! It's definitely something that other android phones don't have.I have triend almost all versions of Android and to be honest they were always laggy and somewhat not optimized.I will continue using WP and will share my experience with you guys.

    You may be turned off the background agent on the Viber application. To turn it on, go to the app list and open Battery Saver and tap Viber and enable it to be run in the background!

    It is already enabled. What I have tried is that I have played a little bit with push notification settings turn them off and on.I have also uninstalled the viber and installed it again.Recativated it, tried soft reboot hard reboot but the issue is still there.I also have found one post from Viber Team where they say that they are working with Microsoft to fix this known issue.But still there are people there that have found the solution to this problem.I just can't find the right topic on the internet where people have shared their way how to fix this problem.

    I'm on o2 in the UK and still have not received the update.
    Every time I check it just says I'm up to date (firmware 14252).
    Can anyone else on o2 in the UK confirm if they have received the update yet?

    That's because 8.1.1 doesn't go as dim as the previous firmware, at least in my 930.

    Problem is your phone is O2 Branded. And there is depence of operator. One way is debrand by reflashing unbrand firmware. Search in xda-developers.com

    I think the update 8.1.1 is now available for the Greece. Follow up this post, ask them there about more details...

    Same issue here. This is a massive disappointment. I do a lot of nighttime reading, and after the update the brightness is way to high for comfortable reading. Hope they will fix this issue asap!

    My friend, I also have a greek device, cv not from a carrier, and I have the latest os and firmware since the second day the update came out! Maybe it has to do with carrier. I bought mine from Nokia, for that reason exactly. Keep checking your device for new os, it will come up eventually.

    I also do a lot of nightime reading, but I don't think they will. Many more people are vocal about purple tint than low brightness level. Even review sites only care about sunlight readability.

    I've had my share of smartphones / tablets and on several of them software updates increased the lowest level of brightness. I clearly remember that happening with HTC One M7 (which led me to selling it). And even Ipad Air, which had a great low level, increased a little bit with iOS 8.

    Following fdokos advice, I reverted to previous software version and I'm not thinking of updating. Low brightness is indeed low, though purple tint is more noticeable than with latest software.

    Got the new display update popping up today - version 3.1.3.3. After entering the "Brightness" setting, i could adjust the bar furter down. And it were at the lowest setting before the update, so maybe they adjusted something. I am crossing my fingers, and will test it tonight.

    Updated to 8.1.1 the day before yesterday, and the biggest improvement is the phone becomes cooler and has better battery life. Now my phone can last from 7AM to 8PM with moderate 3G use. It still gets really hot while on games though.

    The one thing I have noticed (and it is a good thing) is that before the update I got sometimes massive battery drain as well as the phone getting really hot. Now I don't have this issue at all which is one great benefit I got from update 1.

    You are all lucky. I'm still waiting for it and I don't understand why is MS keeps delaying the release in my country! Did MS forget to release?

    Just got my 930 today. Switched it on and installed the update.
    Been on it for hours setting it up and it's only ever got a little warm, no purple hue to the screen and cost a lot less than when it first came out.
    Glad I waited, this thing is awesome!
