    Has anyone noticed that some of the simplest of apps are lagging or taking forever to launch after the update? I uninstalled one of the apps and it fixed performance but I just wanted to make sure it was an issue instead of just my phone. I was thinking of doing a factory reset to see if that will clear it up.

    some people have had this problem and usually uninstalling and reinstalling help. If you have lots of apps and don't care about possibly losing the settings you can do a hard reset. That'll also allow you to install all your apps onto your sd card. Just make sure to backup your apps first settings -> backup.

    I might end up doing the reset to also see how the backup feature works

    No.. That doesn't help. Try asphalt 8 on Lumia 1520... That game ran amazingly on my 1520 on 8.0, now it runs at like 10 FPS...

    I noticed some lag after hard reset, it looks like system is working on something after hard reset. After some minutes (half hour or something like this) the system is smooth.

    My 521 in general was noticeably slow after initial update. But now that its been a few hours it seems to be back to normal.

    So I ended up doing a hard reset, and it looks like it helped a bit. App content wasn't backed up. Developers have to opt for that, but layout and automatic download of old apps worked great.

    In Microsoft's defence, this is a preview, so some quirks are to be expected.

    If you have a Nokia phone and want to go back to WP 8.0, you can use Nokia Care Suite to flash the WP8 ROM back.

    Of course. No one said that it was worth rolling back. Overall I think its mostly preview/update pains. 😃

    if I have to take a guess I say that it's because Cortana was using up all the resources to absorb the internet. after she's done, it's fast again :)
