    Phone: Nokia Lumia 925

    Right channel audio on headphones randomly cuts out and doesn't come back until phone is rebooted. Seems like this was a bug in v8.0, just hasn't been fixed yet. Since a reboot temporarily fixes the issue, I'm led to believe this is a software issue.

    Others are having this issue as well, as can bee seen in the link below. 8.1 has the same bug as 8.

    On my Lumia 520, after accessing notification center from the lock screen, the screen doesn't turn off automatically. Usually, the screen turns off after about 5 seconds when the phone is locked.

    Some of these may have already been mentioned, but these are my dislikes/bugs:


    1) When listening to music over headphones, notifications make no sound whatsoever. I am missing all kinds of things when listening to music now.

    2) Pictures/Camera settings used to allow you to store location information in the picture, and there was an additional setting that stripped the location from the pictures when they were shared. That second setting is missing now.

    3) Live tiles not working bug is still present. I have had multiple live tiles randomly stop working since updating to 8.1. One of them that had never stopped working before was Words By Post. It's live tile had been rock solid throughout WP7 and WP8 when other live tiles would fail.

    4) Battery drain seems to be much worse. Speaking of which, my phone is currently showing it is charging, but it isn't plugged in or on a wireless charger... And I am at 61% after being off of the charger for less than 3 hours.

    5) Speaker noise/pop in videos when fast forwarding/skipping.


    1) I hate that the messaging app has been stripped down to just text messaging. I don't text, so it is now useless to me. I use skype/kik/facebook messenger.

    2) Facebook integration is horrible now. You can't even like/comment on a post through the people hub. It tries to launch the Facebook app, and then just loads the news feed rather than going to the post you clicked on.

    I am using a Lumia 920 on AT&T. There are some things I love about 8.1 (Cortana, Backgrounds with transparent tiles, notification center, IE 11) but there are some pretty annoying issues that came along with the good things.

    WP 8.1 is great overall but now my Windows Key is useless.. how do I assign it to bring up the Cortana app so I can call people lol
    The search button on the right activates Cortana. Hold it down for 2 seconds, and she will be "listening." You can then just ask her to call whomever.

    Now that I have used 8.1 a little more, the only glitch I'm having is with the Music app. It is terrible ... slow, glitchy, etc. There are a couple of threads on the issue here at WPCentral. Hopefully it will get an updated. Regardless, still loving 8.1

    Am I the only one who does not have access in Settings to Battery Saver? All other options in Settings seem to work normally including the Nokia Black introduced extras, but the Battery Saver only shows under the title of it the word "extended battery life, XX% battery left". Pushing that appears to be registered (the title moves "down" and comes up again), but the actual app doesn't open.

    Soft reset doesn't work. Please don't tell me that the only way forward is hard reset! Any workarounds? For record, I am using the 1020.
    Same issue on my 820 Battery Saver simply won't open in settings (and is not in my app list at all.) Soft reset doesn't help. Any ideas? :(

    That and the caret (aka cursor) control sucks. No more long press and it appears above your finger so you can drag it around precisely.

    I'm almost tempted to revert back because of this.

    https://gethelp.live.com/Pages/MSO.a...P8&Topic=Phone Update&ForumID=261804&Locale=en-us. I guess you need to sing in with your MS Account in order to chat with their service.
    I tried contacting them via live chat. They just directed me to the MSDN forums which I've already been actively participating. Sadly, I haven't been seeing much participation in the forums on Microsoft's part. What I have seen has mostly been suggestions to hard reset the phone. Although, I agree and have echoed that the hard reset is a necessary troubleshooting, for those of us who have performed the hard reset and are still experiencing problems, there has been no response.

    Just tap on blank space - it gives you a cursor to drag around to wherever you want - FAR better than the tap and hold method.

    This may have been mentioned already but the sleep to wake time on my Lumia Icon using the power button (no double tap to wake on this phone) is about 4 seconds. Way, way too long! And the windows store live icon is still as unreliable as ever. Last night it displayed 10 updates available, this morning it showed none. Force check from within the store app fixes the bug. Also, isn't it about time the Microsoft gave us multiple options when long pressing the power button??? I'd love to be able to simply restart my phone instead of completely shutting it down and rebooting.

    Regarding Cortana, what can I say... good start, but some of the advances displayed during the product's introduction don't seem to be working for me as advertised.

    And btw before anyone asks... yes I have hard reset the phone several times.

    Considering this is a developer preview, which carrier will or may also get this version of OS on their devices, the bugs are not acceptable. I experienced issues that the phone constantly resets my notification alarm and ribbon settings which causes me to miss important emails. The clicking sound of lock and unlock is not working, Xbox hub not able to load games installed, increased battery drain, not responsive power button and laggy response are totally unacceptable. My user experience with WP 8.1 is even worse than WP 8 despite of the added features and functions.

    I just tried it.... nope. I prefer the old way. My finger still covers the caret and I can't see where its at very well.

    So, I installed the 8.1 update on my 8xt, and I have a pretty constant problem with the screen not waking up until about 5-10 full seconds after I hit the power button, or not at all. The screen just stays dark.

    Anyone having this problem?
    8XT user here, yes same problem. i removed 'photostream app' and some other pre 8.1 3rd party apps i had and also did a soft reset - have not had that screen wake up issue since, hope that helps!

    On my icon I found that with WiFi off I do not have this problem. Easy enough to toggle back on as needed. I would think this will be addressed in an update. Even wpcentral news mentioned this issue as a major complaint from many users.
