    So, I'm sincerely disappointed. Have tried Cortana, it's nice, but not willing to sacrifice keyboard functionality in order to have it at present.

    Other than that, I like the tile background and I think I'll get used to the swipe keyboard, but while they give with one hand they take away massively with the other.

    1. Facebook and Twitter integration. They aren't any more. I used to post to both simultaneously with my live tile... No longer available.

    2. Calendar list view. Sure, add week view, but why remove the other view?! I not have to add a tap to edit my next appointment (which I do frequently), and if I have more than three items today I cant see them till I tap.

    3. Notifications. I need to change the order for this to be useful. Having email at the top means everything is way down the bottom in the morning after i receive a ton of mails, making it impractical at best. I want emails in there, but at the bottom. Native twitter would be good again too...

    4. Birthdays' from Facebook. Thanks for the wake up at midnight last night. Oh wait. No, thanks for nothing. Why would I need to be notified AT MIDNIGHT no less of a passive event. Let me turn the notifications off for this but still see it in the calendar (list view). If is have 2 birthdays then I cant see any other calendar appointments. See point 2.

    5. Games. Why in my main list?? No more game notifications on home screen (yes, it was buggy at best, but fix it, don't remove it)

    Sure there are other annoyances too, so will post if I remember them...

    Thought of more:
    6. Calendar - no longer can choose a default post time - defaults to All day which is not useful.
    7. Calendar - no longer can see which calendar as default. I post to multiple calendars so would really like to see which I'm posting to!
    8. Cursor selection just does not work. It's now awful.


    I'd love it if anyone has a fix for these...

    Maybe it's just me but I cannot get Wi-Fi to turn on and off from action center. I read where you're supposed to hold it but even after holding it I still end up at the Wi-Fi screen. Holding Bluetooth though turns it off.
    I can confirm this too (Lumia 920 here). This, together with the fact that in order to choose between 2G and 3G you now have to do one more click compared to WP8.0, is my biggest complain for WP8.1 at the moment.
    I'm still discovering it, though. :)

    I noticed the general performance of the phone (L920) is lesser. Cortana takes one second to initiate after hitting the magnifying glass icon, menu transitions can be choppy at times, and IE is MUCH slower than before. Anybody experiencing that as well?

    Love it! Absolutely seamless on my L820. Not experienced any glitches or problems, everything's working as it should and the phone is much faster. The battery life isn't great, but that could be just down to the 820's appalling battery.

    Enterprise WiFi still not good.

    According to Microsoft officials EAP-method TTLS+PAP is available for WP 8.1 (Enterprise Wi-Fi authentication (EAP)).
    But it still does not work. Users have been waiting since Windows Phone 7 for this feature.

    If you choose EAP-method TTLS in the WiFi-settings on your WP8.1-phone - it will still ask the RADIUS-servers for MSCHAP-challange/response. And there is no way to change it to PAP in the WiFi-settings.

    This means that a couple of hundred thousands users (students, teachers and professors and alike) world wide - still can't use eduroam WiFi with their Windows Phones where TTLS+PAP is used.

    All (!) the other modern platforms supports this: including Android, IOS, MacOSX, Windows 8/8.1, Windows RT, Google Chrome OS, Blackberry, Linux and even Kindle!
    But NOT Windows Phone.... Why? And when (if ever) will this be fixed?

    I think that there are a lot of improvements. Action center, individual volume control, the fact that you can now organize your playlists, battery sense and others. Of course there are some bad ones, like the mixture of apps and games (which really pisses me off), or the lack of Data connection shortcut in the action center, but what can you do?...Anyway, considering that this is a Preview, i think that in the future those things will be improved.

    All in all, this is a great update. It has expanded the usability of the OS; plugged many holes in the previous version; and, as is always the case, it opens a couple more as designers push the envelope. iOS gets ripped on every update; Android always hears static. It is just the nature of the beast when new software is released.

    I imagine this was a HUGE undertaking, and give the smaller releases time to, again, begin plugging the holes we now have. Piece by piece we are watching the evolution of a great mobile OS taking shape. Enjoy the ride. :)

    It looks like hubs are thing of the past so they can update the app more regularly. It was mentioned elsewhere that hubs required an update to the OS.

    I think that on the whole this update has been brilliant and huge!I know there are a few bits and pieces that need sorting but I think Microsoft have done a great job .I had started to lose hope in wp ever catching up with android/iOS and I was heading back to android myself,however this update has shown us the hard work and commitment that has been put in and so I shall be sticking with wp now.

    This update remind me of a cheap Android device.
    App segmentation , reboots .
    Messaging hub is pointless.
    Can't send pictures from Skype.
    Facebook integration is a crap.
    Music player is a mess
    Ie11 syncs well but I am missing tab numbers

    Microsoft should rebuild the whole platform and fix all of the integration problems.
    Smoked by windows phone my ***!
    Lumia 920 is lagging like a crap Samsung device.if I want lags and crap integration with app segmentation I should have buy android device

    And my Lumia suddenly restarts

    With all of the complaining on this forum about a BETA application and a PREVIEW os, I wonder how any of you even get through a day of your life without breaking down into tears and yelling, "WHY?!?!" over and over again.

    I do like WP8.1 but I do think the Dev preview was released to soon. Not everything is ready to go, the lock screen and apps for example are not ready and hurt the 8.1 experience. It should have been all at once.

    Guys. after installing the preview I had several problems though. App crashes and some unstable stuffs. just did a hard reset and I can confirm all the problems is gone.

    The battery is a bit worst though. Should probably let it settle down for a few days first.

    So far loving this .1 Update.

    I also noticed that the battery life is a bit less. But, I'm sure that's because I'm constantly asking Cortana stupid questions and then laughing like a fool for 5 minutes.

    Finally Installed on my L520. Phone performance is good, but it has a Bad Battery life. If you are a frequent Internet User, then you much have a Charger with you all the time. Normal Usage didnt harm the battery life. Is there a Way to add Ringtones other than, plugging into my PC?? I thought, there might be a feature like - Select a Song/Audio in Library > Assign to a Contact/Ringtone. [Like in Symbian] Or am I missing something??

    instead of double tap to weak up the phone > press and hold to start cortana , I think this will be smart more if you press and hold the search button to weak up the phone with cortana service ready and waiting for your orders

    on a phone like the lumia 630 that wont be possible since there is not dedicated search button so on a phone like that it comes back to double tap itself.
