    Just thought I'd post this. After the update I checked my other storage and it was still showing as 4.17gb's. I did a reset on the phone and it went down to 1.43, nice eh? Now get this, I installed 2 updates from Samsung (other settings and mini diary) and the other storage has gone down to 1.27gb now.

    Very impressed with the update so far, not sure what else is fixed though.

    I have unlocked unbranded UK Ativ S and got the update. I looked around and cant notice any changes except touch screen to capture in camera app works on first tap now. Before it tool several taps. In settings you can choose what the camera button launches. In settings you can choose not to use data when limited WiFi. Those are the only three changes I have noticed. Anything else?

    Data Sense is in the update, you have to do a factory reset to get it to show up though due to a bug that prevents it from showing up after the update is installed.

    Hi, I'm wondering, is there any possible trick to force my device to discover the updates to download and install, like the pull-the-cable trick used for WP7.x devices?.....

    If it's unbranded as well then remember to do a factory reset to get data sense ;)

    My battery consumption rate dropped to 5% from 7.8% since the update!
    So I can say I'm a happy Ativ S user!

    Just received a message from other ATIV S user, he lives in Taiwan as well, but his phone did receive GDR2 update.

    By the way, it just hit me, could it be the Country/Region setting in language+region settings? I'm in Taiwan, but I prefer setting the region as United States.

    It's so depressing when you keep checking for an update and there isn't one. I'd feel better if I knew why. It doesn't help that my Ativ is one of those cheap Expansys ones :(

    Keep trying guys, they roll the update out based on IMEI so you will get it eventually ;)

    Those of you who do have GDR2, have you noticed that the random reboots are gone as well. My ATIV S used to reboot once a day until I got GDR2 :)

    Speaking of IMEI, what exactly is the mechanism of OTA on WP8 devices? Does it mean the machine must prove that it is online, being used, so it could be granted to receive GRD2 update?
    I thought it works like Windows Update on ordinary Windows system, devices just simply receive updates when they are available on Windows Update.........
