    Don't worry about it. The Update 1 would be improvements over Windows 8.1 so expect a better experience with the update 1. You can bet on that! Windows Phone 9 though, that's where we need to worry!

    Yeah my 925 is just fine too (could do with a bit more storage though) Hopefully WP 9/Threshold wont be another WP7 to 8 fiasco.

    If your 920 can't handle it then MS won't release it for your phone. The mere fact that they will release it to all WP8.1 phones means it'll work just fine. No need to worry.

    oh cmon guys, wp7 was a completely different OS in the inside, it wasn't possible to run the beastly wp8 on those wp7 devices, but now is a different story, current devices laugh at the os requirements, you can expect wp8 devices to handle everything at least until wp9, and im not sure about the next major os version until now I don't see anything that would be "too much" for current lumias, but I think wp9 most likely would be able to run on 1gb high end devices like the 920 at the very least, just look at ios7 running on 4 years old hardware(iPhone 4)

    Wow, you know this for a fact?
    And being able to handle the os and actually getting the update are two different things. Didn't Microsoft say each device will be eligible for 2 years worth of updates? Come WP9 I wouldn't be surprised if the x20's (920/5 720 etc) no longer get the updates due to them being 'old' devices.

    The more I read about this .

    And how much of a fool I felt knowing it was actually Microsoft doing the beta testing with the Kin's younger brother, the Lumia 900. I almost left the platform. Fast forward to today, and here we go again. What new must have feature won't my Lumia 920 not be able to do when I get it and when will Paul Thurott get around to telling me Cyan is as good as it gets. Maybe I'll be crazy wrong but its pins and needles time. I'm going to temper my enthusiasm until it is revealed. This flagship has served me well and this update will tell me retirement is the humane move for my 920.
    Do not worry about losing support for your Lumia 920. The reason the previous Lumia generation was abandoned was because there are limitations of single core processors and Windowd Phone 8 was a massive overhaul.

    As far as small updates go, such as GDR1 or above go, rest assured your device will be updated.

    But I can't say the same for Windows Phone 9 which could possibly be only compatible with the latest generation devices.

    But Microsoft wants to establish the same kind of support it gives to PCs so maybe they will try to keep updating all devices as fast as possible to avert another disaster like the WP8 one was.

    Rest assured however, you will get updated for a looong time.

    I'm on school right now, will test it better in about an hour or so but for now it feels very responsive, heck it feels a bit better than the previous software.

    I see nothing about Update 1 that would cause any issues for the L920.

    I updated my L1520 and it's running fine. I haven't updated the L920 yet.

    The folder option works great. I use one for my games and have one for my pinned websites.

    Since you seem to have gotten your answer a few times and we've pretty much established your 920 will definitely run Update 1 without any issues, I'm going to close this thread in order to keep it remotely on topic and useful to anyone reading in future.
