    I'm getting the resuming dots instead of the lockscreen whenever I hit the power button, anyone else having this issue?

    Since installing the DP on my Icon I have had the issue with the lock screen taking several seconds to load. After installing the update yesterday, my lock screen comes up within a second or so of hitting the power button. I've checked this repeatedly and it continues to respond quickly instead of being slow as molasses to power up. It's also generally quicker to scroll around. They clearly fixed something, at least on my phone.
    The lock screen issue is what always had me downgrading to 8.0, but I agree that it is responding faster.
    The power button lag comes and goes with use. I'll occasionally get it back when I do a soft reset. Then it'll be gone the next day.

    Ugh ever since this critical update my Icon is running hot. I never had the overheating problem with the DP before. Disappointing.

    check once with installing Tetra Lockscreen. Surprisingly for me it works good with this app.
    I have location disabled on this.

    happened to me yesterday after updating. tried multiple soft resets and reboots to no avail. then last night I was looking in my photos and it showed an old photo that needed attention to be uploaded, which was strange because I don't have auto-uploading turned on. I tapped it , it uploaded, I went to sleep with it on the charger. today is running cool and battery is back to normal.

    My biggest issue with 8.1 DP is that I can see my battery percentage all the time now so I've tricked myself into thinking my battery life is worse when it's really about the same. Any way to turn that percentage off in the notification bar?

    As far as I know, there is not any way to do that. You brought up a good point. Many people complain that their battery life "seems" to be worse. I wonder if it is because of how you explained how you've tricked yourself into thinking that your battery life is worse.

    Here is my battery life experience from this past Wednesday, when my daughter and I went down to Waikiki Beach and The Honolulu Zoo. I had around 95%(ish) battery. We were there for about four hours or so. I have a camera that is Eye-Fi enabled (Ricoh WG-4 GPS), and I was taking pics with that camera, taking pics and shooting video with my phone, and using my phone as a hotspot to upload the photos from my camera to OneDrive and sharing them on Facebook the entire time. My battery saver kicked in right about the time we were leaving. So I went from approximately 95% down to 20% in about four hours doing all of that. That's not too bad in my book.

    Battery life is not as good as 8.0, no doubt about it.

    For sure. That's what Cyan is supposed to fix, if we ever get it.

    I hope cyan has some impact on that, especially with IE and chat, but I doubt it'll do much. I assume the main reason 8.1 uses more battery is that it DOES so much more.

    I agree a lot more going on under the hood with the OS and Cortana than with 8.0, in fact I think I have seen posts by 930 users saying that cyan/8.1 didn't have a big effect on battery life so I am not expecting any big changes in that area with cyan, just getting the WiFi issues and power button start up lag sorted out will make me happy

    I've always watched my battery usage with a battery app. On 8.1 I had half the battery life as I do on 8.0

    Is it bad that I haven't gotten the latest critical update? I keep checking updates and it hasn't popped up for me. Also, ever since I updated the extras+info app it says i am running Denim. I highly doubt I have Denim but that's what it says. There must be a mistake. I am running DP on my Icon btw

    Open your Preview for Developers app and deregister and register and check for updates. As for the extras & info, it is a known bug that it erroneously shows up as running Denim. Try doing a soft reset and see what happens.

    Hmmm... that IS odd. I'm stumped. Try reinstalling the extras & info app. Did you get the critical update though?

    Yes thank you. And also, I did another soft reset for ****s and gigs and now it says Lumia Black in my extras+info. Hopefully we get an official update soon. These weak WiFi issues are starting to bug me. Anyways, thanks for the help. Cheers!

    It will continue to be. Except IE, which crashes all the time for me. :) But other than that, everything in 8.1.1 works great.

    IE itself, no. But when playing video within an application's IE web wrapper, an unusual strain on the processor seems to be present.

    Much unlike a noticeably absent announcement regarding a FW update.
