    I have come from a Lumia 920 to a Lumia Icon. I got my 920 Day One, and have loved my Windows Phone experience. Like the 920 before it I immediately updated to 8.1 Preview. Now I have a few questions.

    1: When the screen is dimmed down the whites and grey's take on a purplish tint. Is this normal? It is more severe as I scroll. Is this do to the AMOLED screen?

    2: Several of the Icons that were transparent on my L920 are not on the Icon. Do they take time to revert to transparent? (Facebook Beta and Amazing weather HD)

    3: When I go in to "My Apps" in the Store, nothing comes up... Does this take time to populate?

    4: When I press the power button to wake the phone up, there is a slight delay, is this normal? This never happened on my 920.

    I am sure I will find more little quirks as I go. Thank you all in advance for your help

    3. My Apps will take time to load. Normal with WP 8.1. Time depends on the #apps you have downloaded till date (This or other phone - with same outlook ID)
    4. That is same observation so far with DP 8.1 on Icon. Hope we can see that fixed with Cyan.

    I had the purple tint with auto-low brightness but not anymore. Trying adjusting your display color profile to this:

    Still does it with those settings. Please note that it is only when the screen is very dim i.e. when I am in a dark room

    I've had the slight power on delay with my Icon since upgrading to 8.1 DP. I expect it to go away once cyan / DP final is released.

    I see the one you are saying. noted that with DP 8.1 only, not with WP8, so hopefully another thing to wait till Cyan !!

    My best guess is it is a lack of device specific firmware

    I had it on 8.1 then I downgraded back to 8.0 to download the latest Verizon firmware update (1028.3566.1417.0047) and when I upgraded back to 8.1 I no longer got the purple hue from very low brightness. I thought it was the tweaking of the color profile that fixed it since I had tweaked it while I was on 8.0, but I guess that it was the firmware update.

    I had originally posted it about it here - http://forums.windowscentral.com/nok...ue-screen.html

    I have the 521 and the Icon. On the 521, the Facebook app is transparent. On the Icon, it's the Facebook blue. I have no clue why. There's no setting you can change.
