    I've got just one question to everybody screaming for the Cyan update:

    What is wrong with you and your phone?

    I've got an Nokia 1320 with DP 8.1 for one week and its perfect. It's 65% cheaper than the iPhone so I do expect less.

    So why is everybody screaming about that update? Really. It works flawlessly here and I don't even get what that update of firmware should make better.

    Don't pay much attention. People just always complain about something. Now it's the Lumia Cyan turn.

    Better battery life. I don't really believe that would happen, but one can hope.

    For some of us the 8.1DP doesn't work perfectly and driver updates in the Cyan Firmware should fix the issues. Cyan also brings the drivers for BT4.0 which many of us want so that developers can target our phones for things like FitBit syncing, new heart rate monitors, and other fitness related devices. Cyan also brings camera tweaks to most Lumias and double tap to wake to the Icon. Sure it seems like many are complaining but we are running a beta and all it takes is Cyan to make it not beta and hopefully go back to working flawlessly.

    For me specifically it is a few issues:
    1. My phone will randomly hang when I press the power button and take 5-10 seconds to turn on.
    2. My Wifi drops CONSTANTLY and without warning
    3. My compass will not stay calibrated, making map based programs hard to use.
    4. Battery life is poor.

    I've been told that all these are firmware issues that Cyan should help address.
    There are also a few new features
    1. Sensor core - This will let me use my phone as a "Fitbit" instead of having to wear my actual fitbit that broke.
    2. Double tap to wake will be hugely helpful with how my phone works in my car. (The power button is not easily accessible.

    So, there are my reasons.

    This is such a stupid thread. Updates are released for a reason, especially a firmware update... because the firmware needs updating. If it didn't, they wouldn't. It isn't rocket science. Just because your phone is working flawlessly doesn't mean others are (I have a few problems from 8.1 DP). There probably are problems but you just don't notice it.

    Thank you for your comment.

    I'm sorry that my thread sounds stupid. I've just gone from Apple to Windows Phone and I never ever had somebody asking at Apple forums what the firmware did. Because it just worked out of the box. Also if my phone didn't work good on the DP of 8.1 I'd move back to 8.0 which sounds logic to me. I won't go screaming at Microsoft because I believe that doesn't make sense. That's why I've became curious what this Cyan update brings. Appears that's a stupid question ..... fine.

    I think I just got my welcome to Windows Phone users.

    That's the thing you find in many WP posts. People always complain. Though the Cyan update is looked at as a plethora of all things WP, I don't think it'll solve some issues many now have on there phones. Usually, a complete reinstall will help. As for the DP, because it's a preview, which early adopters have taken, they just want to stay ahead in the game, Cyan.

    I agree with you. If the phone is not working properly with the WP 8.1 dev preview, roll back to WP8 instead of complaining.

    I Partially agree with the thread author.

    Seeking for new features and hoping that existing issues will fix if the updates come and waiting for new updates is not at a SIN.

    Some people will adjust with the existing things some people wont.

    ...because this is a forum and by nature it is populated with early adapters.
    ...because some features of 8.1 only work with Cyan firmware.
    ...because of improved low-light photography.
    ...because after we get it we can post that our phone seems faster.

    ONLY because your phone will be faster - a complete re-install will do that.

    People are waiting (begging ?) for Lumia Cyan because (as mentioned) the firmware update will make the device run smoother. Some issues will be resolved, others exposed as hardware, app conflicts, etc. Certain features will come with the Cyan update ... It's where the phone should be.

    Same here, some days my battery drain is normal - as in doesn't go down from 100% down to 79% in a space of 15 minutes of using the WPcentral app. Also when changing regions to buy apps (from US to UK) also I have a battery bug - where the phone thinks it is out of charge when in fact it is not. Have to soft reset a few times to get it to boot again. Last night was worse, phone was on charge and nearing 100%, did a region change and phone rebooted with the flashing battery.. when it finally rebooted. it said only 2% was left and will take 2 hrs and 51 minutes to fully recharge T____T. But 10 minutes later, my phone was at 100% lol.

    Now I can't use Cortana as it would mean restarting to do the region switch and having to go through all that again .

    I think I just got my welcome to Windows Phone users.
    No offense meant, but the Cyan update has been discussed for weeks, if not months. Heck, there has been even an article on the front page for ages about the whole Lumia Cyan update and what it brings to Windows Phone 8.1 - there's stickies on the forums (Developer Preview), countless topics that mention issues about battery life, reboots and performance issues, sd cards not being detected, etc.

    And still the forums are being flooded with these kind of topics with people asking the same question like you did, claiming their device works flawlessly and they simple cannot understand what the fuss is all about.

    You even call people out, ""whats wrong with you and your phone?"

    In other words, people get tired of seeing these kind of topics - and you're indirectly telling them that they complain too much, since there's no problem with your own device and you tell others that you don't expect the same quality as former Apple user. Higher price doesn't mean better quality or support. People should not have to accept having a poorly working Phone because it doesn't cost you a rib or a month's salary.

    If you understand what firmware is, and how it affects the OS/device in question, you should know that every device runs different hardware (NL920, NL1320, NL928, etc - thus uses other drivers. You claim to know a fair bit about it, but thats a bit contradictionary to your first post.

    I'm sorry that people treat you like dirt, but you have to understand that if you're creating a topic like this, wondering what the Cyan update is all about, wondering how this affects the performance and such, you clearly didn't bother to check the forums at all (I mean seriously, it's really hard to *not* see all the topics about people running into issues).

    If you want to see whats in the Cyan update, check out this front page article.

    And thats why people treat you like an *****.

    Again, no personal attack meant. Just explaining why people react this way. I'm glad your device works great - I have a Lumia 1320 myself and I too find no real problems. My buddy has a NL928 and its become real sluggish, burns through its battery in six hours. So I hope that the cyan updates solves at least a few of these issues people have been complaining about.
