    For me the phone seems slower, not faster. Nokia Lumia 520.

    Are letters organizing app list obligatory now? Guess it's logical when all apps and games are listed in WP8.1. I've noticed that Games app doesen't view animated avatar when pinned to start. Some kind of bug or it's a normal behaviour? So far I'm more than impressed. Amazing work Microsoft!

    Oh, and is there a way to keep my local language of the phone while having it set to US region and English (US) speech?
    Any1? Especially the thing with launguage, region and speech.

    Have you restarted your phone to see if it makes it faster? It can be a good idea to always do that after an update.

    That's good, it was a PITA when I was looking for more than one app for it to jump to the app list.

    I've just tried out the new swipe keyboard to write an email. That thing seems very accurate. Much more accurate than my typing. :)

    I agree. There's enough in this new release to make it feel like a new phone. :)

    Where can i find "background tasks"? It used to be in the settings, but it isn't there any more. How do i control now which apps can run in the background and which not?

    No joke. But it is really faster. Multitasking is improved. Apps are snappy not just like in 8. And the os is pretty stable :)

    Haven't seen resume yet, which is quite nice considering how often it would appear before this update. OS is definetely even more smooth on my 920,everything is just fast. Can't comment on multitasking, looks good, you can swipe down to close apps.

    I still get the dreaded "Not Up To Date" on my MS/Twitter/LinkedIn accounts when trying to backup text messages...although it does give me more options under the "Text Message Backup" now (time-frame adjustments). Oh well, future updates maybe. Other than this though, seems to be pretty awesome!
