    I've had my 1020 off the charger for 6 hours and I'm down to 36%. I normally go 16 hours on a charge. Anyone else dealing with this?
    Check your background apps, and mail sync settings.

    I normally have my two emails set to always sync. I never disabled any of my background tasks and I got 12+ hours of medium usage. Now I'm barely getting 7. I really hoping this changes and fast because I need a phone with battery life.

    I'm getting less than average battery drain. But I don't know if that's because I keep playing with the phone or that 8.1 is worse with battery life. Only more time will tell.

    Worse on my 1020 too. Seems this was truly not end user ready and should just be used for testing, def feels like a beta to me.

    Agreed. Games hub is super slow. Xbox music is unusable. Bad battery life. Removal of Agenda view. 3 Rows of Tiles on the 1020 slows things down a little.

    But having said that: Action Center, 3 Rows, Cortana, All Live Tile Apps Updating with no more Background Task Disabled Errors, Fixed Kid's Corner, etc. all more than make up for it. Microsoft will get their act together. This is a preview program, after all. I haven't had this much fun with my phone since I purchased it. I'm already using it very differently. Now that emails, messaging, facebook, and twitter come to the Action Center, there's no need for those tiles to show anything. Makes the live tiles useful in a browsing, keeping up to date, nature - and all the notifications are managed, elsewhere.

    Windows Phone 8.1 is... to quote the Ninth (and by FAR the best) Doctor: FANTASTIC!

    I upgraded my L1020 yesterday and all seems OK (so far)....however, I have a feeling my battery life is draining a little quicker than previous. Planning to do a full battery test tomorrow...i.e. charge to 100% and do normal daily usage and see how long it lasts.

    ^ I'll be doing the same. I'm hoping my battery picks up. Used to last 16 hours with nothing disabled in the background and both emails always set to sync as arrive. I'm hoping they fix this soon if it is a big problem.

    I've looked at other threads on other phones such as the icon our 1520 and people are also having the same problem with those higher end and newer phones. Guess we will have to see.

    The Dev Preview is a Beta test lol

    Microsoft even says
    may not work correctly and are not intended as a substitute for your primary means of telecommunications.
    Think i will wait for official release.

    And yet they knowingly make it easy for non developers to get the update. Personally I don't mind the bugs, it's the deprecation of features that will take yet another update to address, if they do at all. Beta or not, Xbox music still being so bad is inexcusable.

    I updated after I picked up my Lumia 1020 on Monday. Battery Life is atrocious after coming from my 920 I had hoped for better. Maybe it will get better in time?

    I still don't like the fact that even after the 8.1 update you can't charge the phone when it's off.

    I did and I love it a lot. The swipe keyboard is a breath of fresh air since I moved to WP a year ago I missed it a lot.
    Notifications are fantastic to finally be here, the background images makes it look great. Having the extra rows of tiles I love. I like how the store now installs apps in the background and even auto-updates apps.

    It definitely seems to run faster.
    The new volume controls are great.

    There's a bit of learning on the updated apps, but it keeps me busy.

    I'm pissed that the ? has moved further away when holding down the . key.
    I don't like how in notifications you can't swipe away a single notification, or am I missing something. But you can only swipe away a whole app's notifications.

    There is probably more, but It's a great improvement that feels like windows phone is no longer a disappointment. I got my first Lumia as it was cheap 520, and the 1020 for the camera. Now WP can really be recommended.

    Can anyone please share if it is possible to download PDF from IE11 and use it for later usage, instead of opening the Adobe reader that don't even allow sharing to email? I really hope to see that this is now do-able. I don't want to share link on One drive via email. Thanks!
    You can download now PDF-Files. But then they are not in the List of the PDF-Reader. And no, you can't send PDF-Files with E-Mail-Program.

    In my case I notice it's more fluid and faster. For example when going to multitasking, and want to close an app/screen, it's quite faster than before.

    The only issue I found, it's the "mute" function, on WP video you can notice the "vibration" mode mute everything, in my case this doesn't work, ony activates on switch off the vibration on the phone, anything else.

    Also on the volume menu it doesn't appear on the right the "configuration" direct access as WP video.

    My battery life had improved since the first day. I am currently at 84% after 7 hours of light use. This is better than before. I'm pleased with 8.1 overall. If you're battery is poor I'd suggest letting your phone for completely then charge it fully. It should improve after that. I did it two nights in a row and mine is better.

    Okay... 8.1 ruined my camera. All the photos are super hazy. Battery life is a lot worse than 8. But I've got a lot of background apps running. Still loving 8.1, but I need my camera fixed, pronto. Here's hoping the patch on the 22nd jolts it back.

    Have you done any troubleshooting? Cause this isn't normal. Firstly, wipe the lens? Haha. Reinstall the camera software?

    I'd also like to hear some reports. Do we have any negative impacts on our 1020s by upgrading, for example Nokia Camera not working?
