    So I set up "Hey Cortana", but it doesn't seem to consistently work. Also, sometimes it doesn't seem to load properly, even if I use the app to open it, when I click on the microphone and say what I want it thinks for a while and says "I'm sorry, I didn't catch that". ???

    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.
    Glance and double tap to wake are not related.

    (see: Lumia 520 as an example)

    OTA was simply awesome ... kept my start screen tile layout = awesome!

    However ... my "cobalt" BLUE theme is more like a "medium PLUM blue" color ... I tried everything to adjust, I think a "bug"?

    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.
    The Band actually worked before Denim as well, with regular BT. Fitbit didn't though.
    If you set Health + Fitness as your lock screen it will keep a count there. I believe the Tetra Lockscreen does this as well.

    I use the same color but I don't notice any difference in the color before or after the update

    I did a backup then a clean install with the LSRT instead of an OTA and maybe that's the reason for the difference

    Perhaps .... I tried everything, including soft reset = volume down + windows key - and still "BLUE with a plum cast" = very noticeable as it permeates across EVERYTHING!

    Tried to do a "screenshot" with power + windows key but "didn't work" as with Black?

    Only issue I have with mine is it seems like sounds are even lower than they were before. I have all volumes cranked to max and hear no keyboard clicks at all and can barely here my SMS notifications. Anyone else have this issue? I did a full wipe and reinstall from the recovery tool.

    check the settings>>audio equalizer and enhancements section, when I did a clean install most features were turned off and I had to adjust them to the settings I had before

    yes, this. pretty sure nokia motion has been retired.

    also, it does offer a step counter tile. if you do a deep pin from within the app

    I did another soft reset and can hear the keyboard sounds now - only if i leave the audio cranked. Are you using a custom setting?

    check out the brightness and color profile settings. they offer much more refined control now, and it looks like the previous settings were reset.

    yeah, obviously he's not on the developer preview, since this changed in 8.1. hard to remember how long the official update was delayed

    I'm still kind of in shock how much all the little improvements in speed and fluidity of the phone and UI add up to such a great new experience. It almost feels like a new phone.

    Really wish the OTA would pickup, but I have a feeling updating this test device is going to be a pain.

    It's not a bug. Cobalt blue changed color when the Developer's Preview first came out (and changing brightness settings won't help).

    There's also Steps ? Lumia SensorCore SDK sample | Windows Phone Apps+Games Store (United States) which has a live tile that, while not transparent, does offer a step count.

    ETA: It's more of a step meter that fills as you get closer to your goal, not a step count. My bad.
