    Did today's update eliminate the camera issues? And was battery life ever a problem from the start of DP?

    A lot more faster on L520 and a bit of battery improvement.

    That's good to know, looking at picking up a Lumia 520 just because.
    You got any info on the ATIV S?

    I haven't played around with the camera, but the battery life does appear to have improved. I've also noticed some touchscreen responsiveness issues with the initial 8.1 release, so I'm curious to see if the update improves on that.

    Nope, on Ativ S the same problem with camera.
    After the latest update it worked a bit, changing from camera to video, but it stoped working now, and required restart.
    I do not know when Samsung come up with a fix!
    On the other hand on Lumia 520 it is working fine.

    More information please.

    I updated the Ativ S to 8.1 however I had to flash it back to GDR3 because battery drain was crazy at 30% per hour.
    And the i8750 had a boot loop issue with 8.1

    I hope this is fixed.

    Thanks.

    the camere bug can be fixed only by Samsung (new firmware)
    new update is from Microsoft to fix bugs within the Windows Phone OS, not the Samsung firmware

    you need to wait till finale release

    Just weird cause if the camera app is from Microsoft than why would we need to woait for a firmware update. I already tweeted this issue to Winphonesupport and they are already are aware of it. I have the same on my Lumia 920 that the camera refuses to open. I even sent a video to nokia and they told it is a OS bug nothing to do with the firmware.

    Sure BUT you are using a Samsung HARDWARE and Samsung HARDWARE needs SAMSUNG firmware to work properly with Microsoft software :)
    Your SOFTWARE is from Microsoft so MICROSOFT can give you updates only for his product, not for SAMSUNG hardware

    Didn't notice any performance improvements. It was smooth and fast before. It still is.

    Battery looks like it drains remarkably quicker but need a few more days to check. I hate them not publishing a change log.
    Apart from that marked keyboard for me still lacks one important input method. If the final version doesn't have it I'll have to change platform again

    Battery was terrible before, seems great now. Also the OS feels smoother, even though there wasn't really an issue before.

    I did have an issue with the camera once, but usually it worked well before.

    I didn't notice any change in battery life yet.
    The notification bar has improved and no more lags while dragging it down.
    Phone is a little smoother.

    I use to b able to soft reset my 920 by holding the power and vol down button , now when I do it doesn't restart, it's the same as if I just push the power button, I have to slide down to turn off, then manually then back on. What's up with that, am I missing something??

    I was always hitting 48 hours of battery, if not 24... so it seemed fine. it feels a bit more smooth in L520. don't know if my sister feels battery improvement in her 720, but it seems some weird bugs have disappeared, with action center. like it will display lock screen even if I was at start screen when I showed the action center. seems a good update over an already good 8.1 DP
