    My 520 appears to be bricked after attempting the 8.1 upgrade. The spinning gear screen has been going on continuously for over 12 hours now, Any clues what can be done to clear this up or is my phone bricked?

    My 520 has been laggy and crashing ever since I installed 8.1.

    My 521 just started crashing out. I'm just gonna have to sit tight until official release is sent. The preview isn't playing nice with the low RAM.

    installed on a 520 spare phone i had lying around. i started fresh, hard reset before updating, and another hard reset after updating. device battery life is dwindling, today on a full charge without the simcard in (i had my sim in my primary phone) the battery only lasted 8 hours before it reached 15% so that's roughly 10.5% of battery usage per hour with airplane mode. when i used it i heats up like nobody's business. and it crashed a lot. more than it used to. before this on 8.0 it will crash once a week at least but now it crashes almost 2-3 times a day. maybe because of the small ram but on a similar device an L620 that my gf owns, its going smoothly with only the lockscreen lag. but i guess as far as the cost of this phone, people cant complaint much.

    It's been working fine on mine. I use it as an mp3 player so I've only really played with Cortana and Music on it. Once they release the updated Music app I'll be very happy.

    Well one thing I have noticed is that storing apps on the SD card makes the is slow 🐌 and may,if not always cause a reboot, rescanning of the SD card , and other issues, just yesterday the my phone just popped a menu saying format SD card, I tried everything to see if I could save some of my stored files but nothing, I lost everything, and after that I had to reset the phone and start everything over again,but this time I stored apps and new downloads on phone and stored music,video and podcast and photos on SD card, so I suggest you move back your apps to the phone and maybe you could just leave some heavy games on the SD card

    I'm aware that the preview is actually a beta and most probably gonna have a number of bugs but i have an OCD and cant bear lag. :
    It isn't beta, is it that hard to understand?

    No problem on 520. Faster than 8. Can get more space by moving apps to SD card.
