    While the http://forums.windowscentral.com/pre...ts-thread.html is a great thread, it's becoming increasingly difficult to find problems that occur on HTC phones, so I thought it might be a good idea to post your problems, bugs etc. here.

    Here are mine:

    Device: HTC Windows Phone 8S
    Branded: Telering Austria (SIM unlocked). I use it in my country- Bosnia & Herzegovina

    Bugs:
    1. Internet explorer chrashes when loading heavy websites. Happends in UC Browser too
    2. I can't acces advanced settings in the Internet Explorer settings (just returns me to the previous screen)
    3. HTC app live tile is blank (It doesn't work)
    4. Some apps tend to crash very often (Weave news reader for example)
    5. Sometimes the Games Hub launches by itself for no reason
    6. (Rarely) Phone sometimes registers swipe as touch and launches whatever I was holding
    7. After setting the phone language to croatian (in the initial setup) its impossible to change my phone language to english.
    8. The first time I installed 8.1 Bing had music recognition, after a few hard resets - it's gone

    I have tried multiple hard and soft resets (with and without backups) but it didn't fix a single problem.

    Good:
    1. Phone is generaly faster and boots faster than before
    2. Apps resume much quicker than before
    3. Other WP 8 improvements (Action center etc.)

    If I find more issues I will edit this post.

    The thing is, you can't revert to WP8 GDR3. You'll have to live with some few nagging issues until Microsoft will roll one-two updates and then everything will work as normal.

    It's a risk I was willing to take. Still am.

    I have tried multiple browser. The problem is still there. There seems to be a big memory problem when loading heavy websites.

    Same here, 8x vodafone unbranded.

    Advanced setting problems in IE.
    Language problem, at least no problem for me. Dutch is just fine.
    And some more battery drain than before the update.

    The HTC hub app will be updated with their official release no doubt.
    Cortana will launch in the UK on the official launch (day 1).

    I'm still on 8.0 but nobody above seems to have mentioned whether if any of the last two patches has resolved issues around IE...

    Thanks for the replies , i went back to 8.0 (sold 8.1 ) got new one, grd3 really is bug free. Good to know bugs where resolved in IE . Anything new about the people hub? I will probably update to 8.1 in a near future... Because of the app2SD feature which is a must on the 8S.

    8. The first time I installed 8.1 Bing had music recognition, after a few hard resets - it's gone
    3. HTC must update its app.
    8. It's a region related features. I suppose it's limited to USA or something like this.

    The green text means - I never had those problems or those are already solved.

    Maybe it's language specision (Hungarian) but I can't add new words to the keyboard. The plus symbol missing.
    Same here with Romanian. I suppose that minor languages without Flow support must wait a little until the official release of WP8.1 stable. English, German, French or other major languages with Flow support already adding new words in preview.

    OK but HTC apps are the same: the old versions from 2013. We need an update. At least for Beats
