    my biggest concern is the Camera on the 1520. I ordered the 1520.3 from Newegg today and I am hoping it doesn't crash.

    Lumia 1520 Problems after 8.1 Developer Preview

    Dear All,
    here we will try to List down the problems we are facing after 8.1 Developer Preview update,
    Please state the Problems with 1520 not with 8.1

    here is my findings:

    1) Screen sensitivity is still not fixed (some says hardware issue some says software/firmware)
    2) While media volume is low (2 of 30) and during game playback if u try to increase Volume, u will see Static sound from speakers :s
    3) WiFi strength is very week compare to WP8.0
    4) speed is slow sometime - while switching back and forth to applications, it still shows Resuming....

    Still finding more and will share with you
    :)
    Did you not read the 10000000000000000000000000000000000000 warnings and terms & conditions before installing 8.1?

    Edit: I've found a way to uninstall "touch" without hard resetting. This also works for any other installed system Nokia app.

    Change the phones date to +100 years, then go to settings and click on touch. It'll ask you to uninstall. Now my touch sensitivity issue is gone again!!!

    I haven't installed 8.1 and yet my battery is going daft as well. Specifically with charging, its all over the place. Plugging the charger in actually made the battery life drop 3-5% and then it charges back up and varying rates until it gives up at 70-80%

    Yeah, battery readings have been wonky. Mine's also been draining faster.

    Some other issues I've noticed..

    lag in scrolling between the start menu and the app list
    lag in returning back to the start menu (animation stutters a bit occasionally)

    I would give some time, battery life has gotten better for me everyday. Just keep using as you normally would.

    Recently, my Lumia 1520 has been acting up. When I wake the phone up by unlocking it, the phone comes up on a black "loading" screen or black "resuming" screen. Also I had a funky texting issue where my texts would go through but disappear on the message thread. I had to do multiple soft resets before it would fix.

    Wi-Fi issue here as well. I use to be able to sit out in my back yard and have full signal and no connection issues. Now, I can barley connect and Wi-Fi needs to be toggled on/off or reboot the phone to connect to saved networks. Where as before, I never had any Wi-Fi issues. Signal Strength and connectivity were awesome. Not so anymore.

    The wifi signal is weaker now, it disconnects frequently... And the other issue I have is that the power button sometimes doesn't work... Oh and the battery drains faster than before

    I also experienced weaker or instable Wi-Fi signal when I updated to 8.1, however, recently the signal has been pretty good for me. Still probably not to the same signal strength when I had 8.0 on my phone but at least I maintain a consistent connection. What hasn't really improved is my LTE signal strength. I get strong and great LTE outdoors. Indoors? Not so much. I will mention that I have a 1520.3 unlocked running on T-Mobile.

    I'm experiencing the speaker deal too and mine is a replace I've had for four days now, I've also noticed that the processor doesn't run graphically intensive game very well right now either but the guy above me is correct it should be fixed with Nokia Cyan firmware
    same here almost every game lags... even FROZEN. it lags about every 20 second.. it can be fix by restarting but after sometime it will lag again.

    This seems to help the sensitivity issue with me as well. I guess we will see after a few days.

    Hi,

    I have upgraded my Lumia 1520 to Windows 8.1, I have also observed the WiFi strength showing weak as compared to Windows 8. I also have a issue of power button response, Power buttom doesn't respond and I have to reboot the phone. This is happening frequently now!! any solution?? any one else has observed this problem?

    My 1520's battery did drain quicker after the update

    I disabled IE from running in the background and it's back to the same levels as it was before the update. I have more apps running in the background now but the battery life is just as good as it was before.

    The wifi icon in WP8 was a static icon which simply showed if wifi was on or off. With WP8.1 the icon is dynamic and will reflect the actual signal strength of the wifi connection similar to how the cellular connection works.

    I did hard reset 4 days back, it cleared all my problems

    I have huge battery drain issue over night, heating around camera hump, lag during unlocking etc

    Now its fine, I suggest hard reset once after updating to 8.1

    I kind of agree do a hard reset and setup as a new phone 99% problems are gone, the recent touch update by Nokia also fixed the touch sensitivity issue for me.

    Do you have steps outlined anywhere to downgrade back to Windows Phone 8.0? The update says once you update you can not go back... I have seen some talk about Nokia Software Recovery Tool FAQ - FAQ - How can I recover/reset/restore my phone software? - Nokia - UK

    Does this work to downgrade? I have RM-940 - ATT (USA) Nokia 1520 16GB Black model.

    Just Bing for "Nokia Software Updater for Retail". Download version 4.1.0, install it, then run it and plug your 1520 in. It's incredibly easy to use. I restored my 1520 back to 8.0 using it just the other day. No need to download any firmwares from dodgy sites, it downloads them straight from Nokia.

    On the contrary, I found that a hard reset actually made things worse.

    I performed a hard reset on the day that 8.1 was first released, have had nothing but problems:
    - It refused to come out of standby (pressing power button has no effect, the workaround of using the shutter button doesn't work most of the time either).
    - Sometimes when I took the phone out of my pocket, the screen was blank but the device was still on (still warm). No response from any buttons.
    - Most of the time when my device did unlock, it was just a black screen with "Loading..." or "Resuming..." displayed indefinitely.

    So I restored back to 8.0 as above, ran for 48 hours without any issue whatsoever. Then I installed the 8.1 preview again, but this time didn't perform a hard reset. None of the original issues have returned.

    It's just a theory, but I reckon a factory reset doesn't quite work properly.

    I have a problem with the camera automatically starting. It happens almost every day, regardless of what I'm doing with the phone. I could be playing a game, or browsing the internet, then suddenly the screen goes back for a second and the camera starts.

    This never happened before the upgrade to 8.1, so I think it's related to the upgrade. Still, I seem to be alone with this problem...
