    If you want notification centre, cortana, transparent tiles and many other osum feautures then just go for it.

    The only negative is the battery drains bit faster

    No problem with battery on my Lumia 520 since upgrading to windows phone. I feel like the battery life has been improved.
    On Cortana, honestly I expected more. I turned her off and turn on back my native language. Notification centre has been working well for me, hopefully things will get even better after official release of the wp8.1 with more apps to use in NC.
    I am from Europe, and I have been pretty satisfied with using WP8.1 on my Lumia 520. Phone feels generally improved and better. Hoping to stay that way.

    I've not updated yet, only because some apps aren't yet compatible. Namely, MPAtool.
    Whatsapp is apparently extremely buggy as well. Notifications don't work at all.

    Notifications work perfectly for me on my 520. Not sure how you can make a claim otherwise, especially since it appears you aren't even running 8.1?

    Upgraded my 520, and it worked like a charm... and that's more mystifying than anything because my Lumia 1020's battery took a huge beating thanks to 8.1 and OH MY GOD the issues on the Lumia Icon are crazy.

    It's working fine for me, I've had it for 3 days now and no major issues except that Cortana died for about two hours this afternoon and then came back after some fiddling.

    I read the Whatsapp topic on this forum. http://forums.windowscentral.com/win...light=whatsapp
    and of course, this: WhatsApp is broken for Windows Phone 8.1 and there's no fix in sight | Windows Phone Central
