    Based on the 521, 635 and Icon updates I've done before, battery is usually off for the first day or so. Seems to be a lot of background processing. Tomorrow is probably a better day to see any reliable data.

    Thanks, I am resetting now and will see. I only had an option for Manual Internet APN but will see what's available now with the reset. Would it be possible for you to take a screenshot of what your cellular+SIM > SIM Settings looks like.

    We're also a revision or two behind the software on the 930 (Icon v8.10.14219.341, 930 is on 14226); any chance double tap to wake is in there?

    Before we complain, our last bastion of hope is the fact that the "touch" app needs to be updated to support the Icon, this is wishful thinking ofcourse but I don't know who to contact to confirm or deny this :(

    After a soft reset, camera button wakes the phone just fine, much faster than pre-denim fer sure.
    My camera button never did wake up the phone and still doesn't. Where do I turn that on?

    Umm... *runs through settings* Oh! No single file 21 MP image option in Lumia Camera? Surely this is a travesty worthy of our rage...

    Finally - at 4:00pm EST - gears! Thank you to everyone who suggested re-enabling PFD. That finally got me the update.

    As much as I was patiently waiting for the update (had it since October and didn't bother with PFD), I got a huge smile on my face when I came to this thread and saw 300+ new posts lol. It's currently installing now.


    Is the camera update supposed to bring better low light photos?

    For me, under the Lumia Camera, photo, it shows the Main camera capture mode to be either "JPEG (5 MP)", "JPEG (5 MP + 16 MP" or "JPEG (5MP) + DNG (16 MP).

    Yup. There's no "just the highest res possible" option.

    Of course, there are reasons for this (the 5 MP is used not just for shares, but also for editing or viewing in apps to help conserve device resources), but it does prevent you from using the camera at the advertised "21 MP" resolution.

    (Apparently it's 20 MP according to phonearena, but I distinctly remember when I bought it that the advertised res was 21 MP. However, looking through my camera roll on OneDrive, it appears every picture I've taken to date has been 5 MP. -_- Oh well, serves me right for never looking into it before.)

    people's experiences with the new camera app that came with Denim on the 930 that should represent what to expect on our Icons

    You may need to change your settings to upload the highest quality image to OneDrive. it'll only do this over WIFI, otherwise it'll only upload lower quality images.

    The 16mp restriction is due to aspect ratio vs the actual sensor size. Camera sensors never produce photos in their full sensor resolution

    Already had that set. I think it may have been because I was using the Microsoft Camera app instead of the Lumia Camera app.

    Hmm. Oh well. I'm good with it. It's better than my previous phone and better than the iPhone 6.

    The blacks and colors seem much better with 8.1/denim. The hole OS seems way snapper and less laggy. Camera is wayyyyy better . Hey Cortina works fine for me . Only thing I'm disappointed with is no double tap to wake .
