    Can we get a screenshot of 'Tasks' screen in the calendar app, it appears on top of the settings option according to the video I've seen. Is it new or just the To-Do list renamed, and do they appear on the live tile?
    Thanks in advance.

    When you search, it defaults to Web, however, if you swipe left or right, you get other results (Screenshots attached). Oh, this includes Phone.

    Didn't you all notice how much everything is smaller now on the lumia 1520? its look more appropriate now and much useful. showing more content.
    Can you please make a screenshot of the keyboard? It should be much smaller now.
    They have been added! :D

    MS already stated that messaging hub was going away. And so it has.

    Yes. You can set up the notification center exactly how you want to be notified. Mines is set up to just put a notification when apps get updated. I don't need a toast banner or have it make noise. All apps that have notifications enabled are configurable independently.

    Live tiles and lock screen only show 99 at this time.

    If you just clear the notification, it will not least the tile. If you trap the notification to open the app, it will clear it.

    My 1520 has amazing battery life. The internal build I am running had its brain fart murmured though.

    Not sure how that makes sense. Here are 2 scenarios:

    1) I receive 2 new emails. The email tile shows 2. The notification center shows some details about the emails. I clear to notification center, yet the email tile still shows 2? This makes no sense to me. It seems that now it's more work to clear notifications. I have to clear the notification center and then do what I used to do before (open email, even if I don't read the emails).

    I assume that the 2 on the email tiles in this scenario means that these emails have not been read.. but that's not accurate because I could have 50 unread emails. That would annoy me, if that is the case.

    OK, here is the way it works.

    You get 2 new emails. You get a notification in the Action Center that you have 2 new mails (notification center has multiple pages to show TONS of notifications).. You clear the notifications, the tile still states you have 2 unread mails. These are completely separate and not connected together at all. This would not make sense for MS to try this as each app has it's own notification settings. You actually have to go into the app to clear the tiles because that is how the app knows you have at least looked at them (or opened the mail program that allows it to know to clear the tiles). Try to get action center to clear itself AND the tile would be too much work for MS to take on with all of the different apps that are allowed to send notifications.

    Now, you can tap on the notification centers notification for mail and open the app and clear the tile that way.

    Thanks for the response. Now I honestly think this is a pain. I wish I could now just disable tile notifications then, the (2) in a black circle and use the notification center only. I understand it might be too much for the OS to handle but it's not inefficient, IMO :(.

    I guess I might be jumping the gun now. I guess I should wait and see it.... but if it's the way I'm imagining it, I think others will eventually really dislike the repetitiveness in clearing notifications. Hopefully, I'm wrong.

    Thanks again!

    One thing I will say, if I have multiple notifications for Email, Facebook or whatever. If I swipe it to clear the notifications, it clears ALL notifications for that app, so you won't have to swipe to clear each and every email notification from the action center. :)

    I have never seen it. I just see the notification that apps have been updated.

    Now, if you go to the store, then downloads and swipe to History, you get a view like this one:

    http://i.imgur.com/9Vx3eXp.png (also in album) that tells you when each app was last updated.

    I didn't get a chance to see every post in the thread, so if you answered this, sorry.

    In the Games Hub, when you see your friends, is it optimized for the X1 now, so it shows what game they are playing, or just shows it like now? Now it is showing the game title if it is a 360 game, and says "Playing on Xbox One" if they are on an Xbox One?
