    Not sure if this has been mentioned, but for those that are using DP. You may want to keep DP enabled. I disabled it and the update was not coming through. As soon as I enabled it, the update is going through now.

    Ok, since I went from stock 8.0 to this, I have a question for you long time PfDer's: what should I get excited about and set up first? My app update list is long and my phone is hawt!
    Battery Saver, would be my number one - check the applications that are running in the background, I found a handful that were 'enabled' after the denim upgrade. I check Battery Saver often, since some apps will magically re-enable the run-in-background service after updates.

    I don't know what Cyan brought, but if it's what made the Icon this fast and smooth to use, and since I know it's what would've enabled BT 4.0... This makes me really pissed at Verizon. This feels like a new phone, and they just didn't care enough.

    Also, the camera improvements in Denim are fantastic. We can actually take snap shots now. :P

    Phone is so much better now, no delay on wake even on WiFi, my signal is much better and speed. SensorCore, Miracast, BT 4.0 finally works (yay treasure tag) there are a host of new things under settings, you have to go through each one to see some of the new stuff, in some cases it will ask for a restart when you enter some.

    Only thing I am missing is Double Tap to Wake, was really hoping it was gonna be available with Denim but I guess we have a little more difference between the 930 than we thought. Overall, super happy with the update.

    Finally, the camera, omg the camera. This is the shizzle now.

    True. I didn't want to call it beta, because it is available to pretty much anybody who wants to try it out. What is the step called in the process that is between beta and final release? That's kinds what it is.


    Well, in all honesty, it is a beta. Maybe beta+. Still, were could be left in the dark, waiting 2 years to actually get it, if at all, relying on Service Providers. That would suck.

    BTW, Denim is official.

    So what do I do now for 8 hours at work, without being able to read all the complaining on this thread. Is there any complaint that can be started on a new thread, so that I may amuse myself at work and pass the time.

    live lock screen/tetra lock screen is actually pretty usable now. the delay after unlocking is pretty negligible compared to the few seconds that it used to be prior to denim.

    Would probably fit in the "Release Candidate" phase of the software release cycle.

    "Hey Cortana" is not under Cortana settings. It has it's own tab under the main settings page. Listed as Hey Cortana and is just enabled or disabled.

    Isn't it ironic that Verizon is the first carrier to have all of their phones on denim (8.1)

    I have Denim. So far so good. I like Hey Cortana. My restore didn't bring back to Groups. But, I will manually add them.

    I know, right? We need a new cause to rally around and complain about.

    For some reason, I can't shut down my phone as it keeps looping back and restarts. Anyone else have this issue?

    EDIT: I figured out it only happens when charging. Weird 😩

    soooooo stoked, at long last. Waiting till I get home tonight to do the recovery tool install for both mine and the missus. I know I don't have to, but I want the cleanest, most pure install I can do.

    What would REALLY make me love this update would be if that goddamned facebook logo was now missing from the people tile, but I know that's too much to ask for. People tile, thou wilst remain tiny until that day, if ever.

    Also if you have the gestures beta app installed, make sure to go into it, it will ask for a reboot and now give you more options and the actual gestures will now work :)

    There was no difference at all in WiFi connectivity for my Lumia Icon between 8.0 and 8.1. The Icon has terrible WiFi reception and, as I've said several times, I think the only reason some people don't have a problem is because they happen to be using it in areas where their signal is fairly strong. If you have it in a weaker reception area and compare to other devices, its flaws are apparent. See http://forums.windowscentral.com/nok...521-8-1-a.html Here's a picture of my Lumia 521 and the Icon sitting literally side by side at the exact same time, and the WiFi signals they pick up (521 on the right):

    I don't know if this has anything to do with what is holding up the Verizon updates, probably not. But I think the networking hardware on this phone might be what caused its demise.
    So that was the WiFi reception in 8.0 and 8.1 PfD (Lumia Icon on the left, Lumia 521 on the right)...

    I went to the exact same spot today, after getting Denim. I take back what I said about hardware flaws:

    wp_ss_20150211_0002.png

    All of a sudden it found the networks and connected to McDonald's WiFi with no issues. As I said, the exact same spot.

    Thanks, Microsoft!
