    Am I the only one who is really annoyed by the graphic glitch in the animation when pressing the start button? That destroys the whole overall feeling of a proper system. It's even present in the emulator and the preview devices used for reviews...

    I am loving the preview, but what I really don't like is the battery sense app, which in live tile just shows a battery icon which changes with amount of battery in phone, and when you open the app, every application using battery is shown with a dummy bar with no statistical info, how the hell am I supposed to calculate the battery usage by looking at a dumb bar... This is something in dire need of improvement

    After updating to 8.1, i moved the apps/games to SD card and did a hard reset.
    When i opened the SD card in Storage sense, the apps/games are moved to "Others" in SD card and deemed unrestored..
    That's not what you thought the new feature is for, moving apps to SD card is helpful, but if you are hard resetting your phone, those apps will not be recognized by the phone after reset.Now the only option you are left with is formatting the SD card, and reinstalling apps, and the app data will be lost😐

    Hello friends, I think I have discovered a new bug at WP 8.1. Well, when I wanted to see how much memory do I have I discovered that the aplication Settings occupy 1.8 GB. I made a Hard Reset but it doesnt helped to solve the problem and after I reinstall the aplications it became larger again. I think that all of the instalation files are keep at my phone, because even when I didnt have anything on my phone it still was around 600mb. My phone is Lumia 920....Could you please advice me what should I do now?Does anybody of you met this problem?It would be very kindly from you to help me)) wp_ss_20140420_0001_2061.png

    it's not a bug if your SD card is crap and your apps run slow. I have the recommended SD card for a Nokia Lumia 810 and it actually runs apps FASTER than the built in storage does...

    The battery usage bars are a lot less informative than if they had numbers accompanying them, like a percentage.

    Have you activated location services??
    yes, my location services are on. I think I know what is the problem. after hard reset, I have to choose the language at that starting process and I only have English(UK). The US version is available only after I download it in the settings zone but the UK version still remains, I can t remove it. I guess i'll have to wait for a HTC firmware ?

    "That is because all unbranded HTC phones are shipped with roms without US english as phone language." so this is the problem...I ll have to wait till cortana is released to uk :(

    Has anyone else noticed since installing the 8.1 Preview that their Battery is lasting only half as long? I'm now using my 1020 Battery Pack halfway during the day and that's without using it!

    Battery on my Lumia 1020 did last shorter periods...in wp8 it lasted for 40hrs.... But on WP 8.1 it lasts less than 32 hrs....i am a very moderate user by the way.... you can improve it by removing background tasks...it improved for me

    Background Tasks are always running at a minimum; it immediately got worse as soon as 8.1 was installed - the software just seems to be sapping more juice from it, yet my 1020 doesn't get any warmer so it doesn't appear to be 'physically' working harder. It is disappointing, but I'm hoping this will dramatically improve with future 8.1 updates

    If you have lock enabled on your phone every time it locks the SD cards become unavailable to the host PC. I have my lock set to 1 minute and I always have to unlock the phone before The PC will see the storage.

    What exactly do you lose when you do a hard reset? What does personal data include?

    Change your USB port cable

    I had a laptop that would not see my phone and once I replaced the MB under warranty the issue was resolved. Test your phone on another PC if you still have issues try another cable

    OK, here is my summary after using WP 8.1 developer preview ever since it was released on my HTC 8S.
    I've done hard and soft reset multiple times, last time was 4 days ago

    Bad (Bugs, problems etc.):
    1. Internet explorer crashes when loading heavy websites (Phonearena.com for example). It doesn't crash immediately, maybe after a minute. Also when browsing the wpcentral forums it tends to continually refresh the page until it crashes. I've noticed that a lot of other users seem to have this problem (The ones with HTC phones, but some with lumias too). This problem occurs in other browsers too but not always (Maxton works fine on WPcentral forums)
    2. I can't acces Internet Explorers advanced settings. Not from inside the app, neither from the settings menu. It just returns me to the previous screen.
    3. I can't change my phone language to English (US). I have found that this happends on other HTC phones too
    4. Animations stutter sometimes.This never happened in WP8, but mostly the phone operates smoothly. It's not a biggie since it happens rarely, mostly after an app crashes
    5. App loading times are hit or miss. This has nothing to do with where the app was installed. Sometimes they load faster, sometimes slower. WP8 was pretty much consistent when it came to this
    6. Sometimes live tiles take a second or two to "load".. This mostly happens when I unlock the phone and scroll fast to the bottom. This never happened on WP8

    Conclusion:I think that there are some RAM memory management problems. It's the only thing that could explain most of those problems. I'm getting a feeling that they still haven't finished tweaking the new memory management system.

    The good:
    1. Everything about WP 8.1. I admit, there are some problems, but the OS feels really mature now. I'm liking the app2sd option especially (Storage was a big problem on HTC 8S).

    In general I don't understand all the complaints (Ok, the new cursor for text selection is bad - it's the only one agree with). We even have file managers now :-), action center, tile backgrounds
