    That is how WP8.1 specific apps work. The apps are suspended in the back ground when you press the back button, unlike WP8 where it closed the apps.
    So we have Android logic in WP? One of the reasons I hate Android is that Google presents idea apps don't need to close, instead should be paused.
    Don't want to make a flame about which logic is better, but I definitely prefer if I can manage my memory. By that I mean I will close the apps I want to close; I will pause the apps I want to pause. I loved WP because when I closed the app, it was gone and there was nothing left in memory.

    Now Microsoft assume they know better what you want.

    How about battery drain, do paused have any impact?

    Hi,
    I have been experiencing 2 problems on my L520 , Developer preview 8.1.
    1. Back button is working only partially i.e. single back press doesn't work but long back button press takes me to the multitasking view as expected.
    2. Phone volume is automatically reduced to lowest level even if I drag it back to maximum. and there is constant bar which shows "Vibrate" (Screen shot attached )]where toast notifications usually pop up. Whenever I press the back button, this notification bar just shivers and nothing else happens.
    I have tried hard reset couple of times but to no avail. Please help.

    It has always been like that. It's basically the same situation where you just press the start button instead of back button in WP8. They will just freeze in the background. They have just implemented it to the back button. You can close them by swiping down or pressing the x button. They don't consume battery.

    Backup does not work in 8.1, I did another hard reset in my 1520. I backup my apps and settings before I did it and looks like is doing the thing but once you reset the phone and put your Microsoft account them nothing happen. There is nothing that pop up and ask you if you want your backup and when you go to the backup and click on manage backup, nothing in there either. Don't know if this is already published in this topic.

    Does anyone else have this problem? When using the light theme, my phone will randomly switch the keyboard to the dark theme before flashing to the dark theme or when I unlock my phone the the pin keypad will be in the dark theme. Bit annoyed at all but I'm just wondering.

    yes. i noted that. particularly, when the lock screen wallpaper is changed. and i use amazing weather hd, which changes lockscreen every 4 hours.
    i just am not annoyed by that. it happens in beta phase.

    I am not experiencing this behavior. I recently moved from a 920 to an Icon/929 with both running 8.1 and everything synchronized and restored correctly.

    I was seeing that but after the latest update, it no longer crashes. It just asks to send an error report email.

    i noticed that text messages are not ordered correctly.

    New messages of this months are on top and older onces on the bottom, when i receive a new text message it is displayed under the last one of this months (currently 3th one from above).

    Dunno if this is a bug or setting, i cannot find a setting for ordering my text message if it is...

    Anyone had a problem whereby when composing an sms or similar, the words stop appearing and typing freezes? Only fixed by tapping away from the dialogue box and then back on it. I'm using a Nokia Lumia 1020.

    Just check your time and date is set correctly. I've had this when I have restarted and forgot to reset the time and date.

    1. On my Lumia 820 there is a hiss between songs (latest Music app). Was worse in previous version, but can still be clearly heard.

    2. Time not changed automatically although set (travelled from Germany to Tallinn, 1hr difference). Even after 3-4 hours the phone was still showing German time.

    For me this happens only when I search in Market and only sporadically.

    After a few hard resets and now two updates later my HTC 8S is still having problems loading heavy sites (for example phonearena). The page loads fine but after 30 seconds or so IE crashes. At least it's way better then it was when 8.1 was just released - back then it didn't even load some websites. I'm hoping that this is a firmware problem and that HTC will fix this.

    WhatsApp, Nokia Camera, Skype, Nokia MixRadio - Many apps crashing after soft reset.
    On opening, they just show the loading dots for an instant, and crash back to the previous screen.
    Tries uninstalling - reinstalling those apps. Say problem during install.
    Help!

    Hi all,
    2 bugs I have
    1) My location icon will appear in the top bar. Even though its not on

    2) When playing a video from a webpage. It asks to open or save. If I open it a play it, if I press the skip buttons it will make a noise like a clicking noise. Even though my phone is on silent , vibrate only.

    Certain emails cause the email app to crash. Not sure what about these emails causes it, but the emails from one particular user of my companies email system when sent from his Android device causes the mail app to crash. Hard for me to isolate it, but I think it has something to do with the sig.
