    I still only have one big problem and it's getting worse.

    Lockscreen won't shut down (into glance screen), consumes a lot of battery

    And it's happening more often each day.

    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.
    This has been a chronic problem for me since the update. I pull it out of my pocket, push the power button, scroll up the splash screen and it will be all white with ....resuming.... going across the screen. Some times this happen while it is in my pocket and it will get extremely hot and I have to do a soft reset to fix it. I uninstalled Glance as I thought that was the issue but it persists. I've also noticed worse battery life since the update. I've noticed the Wi-Fi issue as well, though not very pronounced. I've also brought the phone out of sleep and the camera randomly launch.

    It's been a more difficult than normal update for me. Still love the phone and am sure it will all sort itself, but this "resuming" thing is starting to really be annoying.

    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...
    You are not alone my friend. I have the same issue, though it has been happening a lot less recently.

    I had the Wi-Fi issue when I first upgraded to 8.1, along with finicky LTE signal. I performed two hard resets and then now the phone wake up issue happens more often. I also notice the phone gets really hot when this is happening. I constantly check the battery meter because I think something is running in the background that is causing it but I turn most everything off for background accessibility. We'll see I there's an overall fix for these bugs on the 1520. For now I'm coping.

    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.
    Are you sure about this? Yesterday I did a speed test, with my phone, on my wifi before I updated to 8.1. The results were 40.45 mbps download, 5.42 mbps upload, and the ping was 32 ms.
    I then did a speed test this morning because I'm having the same wifi issues as other people seem to be having. The results were 2.30 mbps download, 4.01 mbps upload, and the ping was 83 ms.
    From the results im seeing this wifi issue is more a real problem vs just a wifi signal meter showing actual signal strength.

    Yes. Irrespective of any other issues you send to be having with WiFi, the icon was a static on/off one.

    1) If I dial a number e.g 058-9288882 and the number stored in contacts are like this " 00971589288882 " then dialer did not shows name of contact instead shows the 058-9288882.
    (Android and iOS shows the Contact Name)

    2) WiFi can be turn on on via Action center but Turning Off the WiFi it navigates to the WiFi settings.

    I have come across another isse:
    When I use the back arrow it does not necassarly close the program as it did in 8.0. Now I have to hold the back arrow to make sure all windows are closed except the home scree. If I do not, my phone starts to get very, very hot around the camera lens and my battery life goes to crap real fast. I have reset my phone and started over fresh, but with the same results. And as stated on page 2, I still have the Wi-Fi issue being very weak compared to 8.0. Is anyone else having heat issues and apps not closing by using the back arrow?
    Thank you,
    Frank

    The only problems I have found has been:
    1) Action shot on nokia camera closes as soon as I open it.(Firmware update should fix as it happened before and a firmware update fixed it)
    2) Phone randomly reboots
    Anybody else experience these issues?

    in my 1520 camera not working at all, and hand some other issues with battery and apps not stable, then I down graded to 8, and tried again for 8.1 preview, now only problem is my camera not working, rest all are stable, at times noticed a little more heat than a regular on the back besides the camera. any ideas and thoughts how to make camera function?

    thank you guys
    I still have problems with my NL920 that the camera is not working. It worked before but when I factory reset the phone due to battery drainage problems and than the camera refuses to open/work. Downgraded to 8.0 and camera works fine.

    I did the recent update hoping to alleviate the few whacky problems I was having but to no avail.

    • The camera still launches randomly
    • The phone has this weird ---resuming--- thing that happens when you put the phone to sleep causing it to eat battery and heat up quite a bit
    • It's slow to wake up (it will start the screen very dark then jump to full brightness)
    • Make/receive a phone call and putting the phone to your ear won't always make the screen go dark
    • Sometimes when you go to end the call randomly launches some other page and you have to tap the phone bar at the top to get the phone up so you can close it



    Other than the phone heating up and having that stupid ---resuming--- thing going on, I can live with the other quirks, but I was really hoping this update would fix things for me. But, I chose to download the preview, it was bound to bite me eventually.

    I've had several issues that are bugging me. Mainy with choppiness in scrolling (sometimes in the app list but mostly in apps that may not be optimized ). Even IE which is usually smooth as silk has been trembling a bit. It is also a pain to have to hit the volume buttons to make the music controls pop. And when they do they sit there for about half a second a then go away. They don't give you time to do anything. In fairness, this may have been this case in the earlier versions. I've only had the 1520 for a few days but these issues plus the annoying screen tap issue is making me pull my hair out.

    Dear 1520 Lovers,

    I've got some bug after updating to WP8.1 (Developer Preview).
    This bug is random, i don't have any idea to trigger this bug. Is about 3 times i got this bug in a month.
    The bug is really annoying, the screen is not responding and the button also. I have to wait till the batteries runs out.

    Check this video for detail :

    If you have cortana pinned to your home screen, try unpinning it and see what happens. I have had the exact same issues and now they are gone. If I re-pin her then they start up again. ;( so sad because I like to keep her pinned)
    I am begging to think that MOST of the issues are coming from having Cortana pinned to the home screen. May be wrong, but for sure the overheat and resume issues are directly related.

    I just un-pinned this from my start so we'll see how well this works. This would not be an optimal fix for me as I enjoy having that on my start screen, but the ----loading---- thing is driving me absolutely crazy now.

    Let me know if you have any further issues.

    I can confirm that Cortana is unfortunately the culprit in my ---loading--- issue when the phone is asleep. I un-pinned it from the start screen and haven't had an issue since, something that was actually happening up to 6 times a day on most days. So, while I no longer know how long my estimated drive is simply by looking at my phone, I'm at least finally getting good battery life and my phone doesn't start burning up in my pocket multiple times a day.

    I'm sure it will get fixed in the final, but till then, she is on the bench.

    Don't forget that Cortana is beta.

    Absolutely understood. I take full responsibility for downloading the 8.1 preview knowing full well that things may go south in certain area's, and it happened to be with Cortana. Since unpinning from the start screen I have had zero issues with the phone.

    The thing I always find funny is how I can be having a problem on my 1520 but most people are not having this same problem. Did my phone miss a few packets during download? Does my phone have a specific app installed that is incongruent with Cortana's needs? Did I not stand on the correct foot when I installed? It just always amazes me how things fall apart for some and not for others. But, as I said prior, I'm sure it will all get fixed in due time.

    Why not go back to 8.0 and then install 8.1 clean on your phone.

    Did you solve this issue?
    My 1520 is also acting weird and does not turn off the display after a notification or after connecting the charger. Its very random that I am not able to reproduce.
    If anybody has a solution please post here. This issue is very annoying.

    I still only have one big problem and it's getting worse.

    May I ask what makes you so sure the screen issue is firmware related? It's been 6 months since this was released. If it was a firmware thing they should have fixed it by now. Or at the very least, not shipped out new 1520s with the same issue (like the recently released RM-938 variant).
    I had this pesky screen sensitivity problem, the last firmware update prior to 8.1 fixed mine. I almost couldn't believe it. So far so good.
