    Guys, reset the phone and wipe everything but do a backup first and most of your issues will disappear. Even after the wipe and reset, I have issues with wifi and the store.
    I agree with you...
    My people hub back to normal after reset...
    (however game save still lost)

    I just updated my Lumia 920 normally. No hard resets. Updating was pretty ok. The gears did take some time. Its advisable to remove the SIM before updating the phone. The gears seem to take a longer time with the SIM inside the phone. I still feel that the OS is lagging at places. MS should rectify this before we become the laughing stock of our Droid brethren. Not very much but during some of the transitions, switching or closing tabs in IE etc., the lag is pretty apparent. Otherwise, its smooth enough overall (for the sheer number of features this packs). My biggest gripe apart from the Music app is the requirement for location to be on to do a phone search in Bing. I am not sure if this is due to enabling Cortana. But why does a phone search require location is beyond me. I am yet to observe some of the other bugs in this thread. Mostly it has been a pleasant experience save for the battery drain and heating issues. Got it inspected at Nokia Care and they said it was perfectly fine. It has to be the new OS functions. I did a soft reset and full charge. The drain "slowed" down a little but still is very much quick. May be it takes time for the OS to understand the usage and allocate tasks accordingly.

    Another bug I found that my Lumia 520 is unable to run University WIFI.
    It required proxy in order to connect with my phone in order to connect with phone.
    But initially when I connect it it says no internet access [ which is right] but it doenst add that WIFI to my WIFI list so Im able to change the proxy settings from there.
    So I cant use that WIFI.
    I think other also have these problems with connecting to proxy internet connections.
    it worked in Windows phone 8

    The having to manually connect on wi-fi is a small issue..and the way around the intermittent power button failure to wake up is to turn on the double tap to wake..

    I've poorer battery life to with everything turned off..email set to check as told hourly..and also on charging..failing to show it charging for up to a minute...when it does this..it always gets extremely hot..and a soft reboot clears the issue for awhile..

    One other issue...i lost my volume control for the external speak on apps games..phone calls..wasn't in the drop down menu on the volume button push..just head phones..several reboots it just showed back up

    If your having power button issues..try turning on double tap to wake..it helped mine..

    Is it just my phone or some apps fail to exit on WP8.1 preview? Try opening and closing Calendar and/or Battery saver... They still appear to be open on task viewer, even if they are supposed to be closed.

    As of yet, two bugs occured (nothing major).

    - Can't access the advanced settings in IE, it crashes
    - Searching for music in the Bing app (I'm in Canada) and tapping on what it found opens the Music app and then an empty black screen.

    I'm considering lack of comma button and old in line editing as a big defect. That's madness, it takes twice as much time to type as it would with these functions.

    The comma button is still there, look in settings. As for the in-line editing, yeah thats irritating....that little circle is too small to grab, plus it moves under your finger like ios and android, if you have a large finger you cant see where it is!! Bah!

    I don't get your problem with the editing cursor, once you press down on the little circle you don't need to keep your finger on the text, you can just bring your finger down while swiping so you can see perfectly fine what you're doing... It's so much easier and faster...

    The image search doesn't appear to be working properly. Sometimes only one or two images come up, sometimes none. Is anyone else experiencing this problem?
