    I posted this somewhere else, but it should go here.You know new keyboard suggests emoticons when entering the text. For example, if I am writing I love windows phone, after typing (or swyping) the word love, the top bar on the keyboard will show heart icon. You can tap on it and the message will look like - I love windows phone. Now here is the new part I found. just before you tap the heart icon on the keyboard top bar, tap backspace once and than tap the icon. The text entered will show - I windows phone. This makes more sense as it removes the word 'love', and the redundancy associated with it.

    Now it's harder to scan QR codes if you are enabling Cortana.
    you can use the Bing lens in the camera. but i find you can turn off location and use bing form search button just like before.
    it's faster if you are using location icon in action center.

    my tip was deleted :( Reposting because some folks are actually unaware that you can mute volume for ringer/media by tapping on the respective icons.

    If you want the comma back on the keyboard, head to Settings > Keyboard.

    Edit (8 Sep 2014): Just discovered this feature is disabled on my 635. What's up with that, Microsoft?!

    Maybe it's just me, seeing all the likes, but long pressing on WiFi button does nothing. Maybe you got mislead by the fact that for turning WiFi on you just have to tap. But for turning it off tapping stil opens the menu.
    Hi, I tried it and it only works when you turn-on. It doesnt work when you are trying to turn-off the wifi

    You can choose to move over your apps to SD card from here. Seriously, this is one of the most useful features for me. L820 out.

    I noticed that it can auto fix issues with SD cards, previously it suggested removing the card and inserting it in to a PC.

    In the WP8.1 preview videos, I remember seeing an option for 'Vibrate when ringing'. Now after I've updated my 920 to 8.1, there is no option to do this in the sound+ringtone settings.
    Have MS removed this feature.
    From the expanded volume menu you can toggle vibrate. I don't know if this only affects ring or also apps that use the vibrate functionality.

    In store you have that grey search bar at bottom of the screen. You can swipe it up from the left side of the bar ;) and close it by swiping any where in the bar downwards.

    Hey not sure if anyone else has run across this but when hard resetting I came across a few apps that said they were no longer available on the OS.
    The way I got around this was to go to and download the app to my phone from there. App examples include most of the HERE apps

    If you got Cortana and someone send you something like a meeting invite or to go for coffee at x time at x place. You'll likely see a dotted line(sms) or hyper link(emails) under part of the message(likely the time) that when selected will take you to a calendar event that Cortana filled out as much as possible.

    I got the same after a hard reset. I pushed downloaded all the other apps through but had to download the HERE apps via app store on the device.

    Tip: You can change the action center buttons to open functions that otherwise you had to go into settings to do; like internet sharing.

    Settings > notifications + actions > Choose your quick actions.

    Protip: Tap the bell or music note icons in the expanded volume to instantly mute/unmute like the old Ring/Vibrate button on WP 8.0

    I always wanted the "Nokia Blue" colour for tiles.
    Now I can, thanks to transparent icons trick. I made a small PNG with colour hex code #004C9A, made it the "Start background" in start+theme. For those interested, this is the colour I am talking about. (It looks better on the phone)

    If you highlight a word and tap the shift key it will cycle between uppercase, lowercase and camel case.
    Not a WP8.1 feature but especially useful with the shape typing - you can tap on the number/punctuation key and slide to your desired punctuation and when you release it goes back to letters.
