    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 .
    The screen improvement is very noticeable. Probably my favorite unexpected feature of Denim so far

    Did you turn it on in the settings under "Hey Cortana"? If you did that and it still doesn't work, maybe a soft reboot helps.

    Has anyone else noticed that we cannot use Google search in the IE search bar anymore? It goes to Bing/Cortana and they're is no don't to fix it.
    Didn't know that was an option before. No need to use anything other than Bing myself, but google.com should work still, I assume?

    Loving the Denim update. Had DP before. Had no issues with the upgrade.
    Someone I know did have the BSOD when he ran it, bur once he did a hard reset/reboot, it finished normally.

    As a Canadian, here are my only issues: (love the camera btw)
    - Access Point no longer works. Needs an update.
    - "Hey Cortana" only works if i change my language and region settings to USA.

    Besides that, all good

    Yeah, at first I thought I was going nuts and imagining things. The screen looks amazing now.

    *sigh*. I see no reason that we shouldn't have received double tap to wake. Such a great feature.

    Oh well, life goes on. Can't win em all.
    but we have Hay Cortana , just ask her for the time. it works, better than glance and tap.

    When I plugged my phone into my car adapter I got a message stating I plugged in a low power adapter and to use a recommended adapter or something like that. Never saw that before. And my car charger is a high one though.

    I just realized that the blacks aren't black anymore, it's a bit reddish mostly near the bottom. It was pure black before.

    EDIT: The whole screen has a very red/brown tint when on high brightness. Hmm...

    Kinda sucks when my sister's 928 got double tap to wake, and my more powerful phone doesn't. I wonder why it wasn't included :/

    I am happy enough! Can finally try out things like Softcard, and use Fitbit app as intended. The camera is now fast enough to get pics of kids while their still.smiling😃 the double tap issue sucks but is not a live or die issue for me anymore. I've gotten use to not having it since I moved to Verizon and away from my 920. Plus battery life with double tap and hey Cortana on might have been pretty bad, but who knows.

    It has to do with the screen hardware. There is an issue with the display memory that makes glance a no-go with the Icon. Apparently the 930, which is supposed to be essentially an Icon clone for GSM networks does have double tap to wake. Not sure if this was something nokia did to the hardware before releasing the 930 (it came out a bit later than the Icon) or what.

    So I take it Lumia Camera Classic is now redundant/obsolete - since it doesn't access the higher video rates?

    I figured out that Health + Fitness can track motion the same way that Motion Monitor did, although the live tile does not offer transparency or a step count. Now that I finally have Bluetooth 4.0LE I might get a Microsoft Band, so it does other stuff too.

    That's the living images setting. You can switch that off if it bothers you.

    Over at AAWP, the comparison between LC5 and the older version shows some definite changes. You may want to keep it around depending on circumstances. (It would seem the app itself does most of the camera changes -- other camera apps shoot exactly the same as they have).
