    For some very odd reason my Lumia 1520 has reverted the home screen animation from the new wp 8.1 to the old WP 8 one. I have a Lumia 1520 and 520 on 8.1 and their home screen animations are different. It's anyone else experiencing it?

    Yeah mine seems to be like the old one now, I had thought I'd just gotten used to the new one so it didn't stand out anymore, good call!!

    Everything's normal on my 920, not sure what you guys are talking about exactly.

    Mine's back to the old one as well on both my 920 and 520. I quite liked the new one!

    It's when you are in any app and you press the Windows key then the way the start screen loads,

    That's due to extra+ info update we all had yesterday... After that this happened.

    If that's the case, can Nokia change the way this looks now? Hmm.

    It could be that you have removed or unassigned photo for your Start background. Go to setting>start+theme..then choose a photo. If you have removed or have choosen to unassign a photo it will revert back the traditional WP Start theme.

    It's due to yesterday extra+ info update on Lumia phones... All who have updated that extra+ info update have returned their phones to old wp8 animations... AND YES AFTER THAT BATTERY BACKUP HAS INCREASED NOTICEABLY.

    Have not noticed anything, at least the battery 🔋 backup improvement part looks good to me, I will compare it with the emulator though..

    Ok..I haven't noticed any changes at all as all I care about is I am using a WP, which I love.

    No change here on my 820. I kind of doubt an update to extras+info would change things like OS animations although that would be awesome. 8.0's animations were better IMO.

    I am not a fan of the old animations, but it will have to make do. I'm glad that I wasn't the only one experiencing this problem.

    I uninstalled extras+info and animations back to 8.1 transitions after I restart the phone.

    Wow, I did not realize that until now. I'm on the fence regarding the animations, I like them both. I think I prefer the new ones though...
    Hmm, that was as odd change. I wonder why. Maybe because the slightly longer (at least in feel) animations masks lag?

    The may be some optimizations with the last update to extras and info. I am not sure what negatives of doing this would be.

    I haven't notice a difference in animations with the exception of the one when you open emails. Can anyone provide a link where we can see both animations?

    Watching the animations side by side there's little difference but really noticeable. 8.1 animations has more turn and drop down windows (like tapping on the letters on app list, or choosing a ringtone/accent color) gives a more pronounced flipping effect. The 8 animations are more subtle, and has less curve turning animations. It's hard to explain but it's there and noticeable.

    Glad I haven't updated any system apps.

    Hmm, I've noticed this change post update.. I preferred the new animations, but I'm more encouraged to hear of battery improvements. Ive noticed my 920 being a bit more variable than usual but I'm cool with that being the dev preview. Has anyone had problems with homescreen tiles remaining transparent for a second or so when scrolling quickly, before icon info loads? Wondering if the recent system updates have improved this for anyone...?
