Anyone having issues with the latest update? I have found that my battery is draining super fast. Last night I updated it and found that to be the case but thought I'd try to track it the next day. So today I unplugged my phone at 8am. Only changes I made to the setting was to turn on glance (peek) and double tap to wake up screen. After less than an hour and it being at 90%, I turned off both of these features. So this puts me at my normal daily use settings. 5 hours later, my battery saver icon is showing. Anyone else having these or other issues?

The biggest thing I found with battery drain and the update was the NFC was enabled again on mine. I turned that off and now my 810 goes all day long most of the time. The other battery drainers that I have heard about are the double tap to wake feature and the peek setting in glimpse. Disabling those makes my 810 run as normal.

Is anyone having any picture problems with the OTA update? I flashed the update to my phone and that was one of the problems

So far no major problems. One annoyance is the "Nokia Collection" heading is gone from the store. Not a big deal because I can just type "Nokia Corporation" into the search field and see all the Nokia apps. Everything else seems to work good if not better. The camera is faster now and the 1st picture Lag is gone even though I am still saving to the SD card. I am a little peeved that the 521 has FM radio but not the 810. I am happy that we can now block text and phone calls. No more telemarketers!

I played around with my 810 for maybe an hour or so yesterday after updating it. Had to charge it because the battery went from 91% all the way down to 67% while the update was downloading and installing. I didn't notice any unusual battery drainage afterward, though. But then, I didn't really use it much and I haven't been using it as a phone at all since I got my 920 back in May.

that's odd, I still see it here on my updated 810

For my 820, Double tap to wake up was proven looser. Once I disabled it, am back to my normal routine.

After the update i noticed some crazy stuff going with the battery. When plugged to the main, the battery suddenly goes from full to 69 or 72% after less than a minute of use. When i lock it, the battery software says it will take like 30 mins to recharge back to 100%, but in reality, it takes less. When listening to music, the lifetime goes to less than 11 hours, and even less if you listen for a longer period of time. I disabled glance and some background tasks but to no avail. This is crazy because there is really no explanation to this bizarre behavior.

On my nokia lumia 928, Compass stopped working and battery is draining fast, I only have the glance feature enabled. Now doing hard reset to see if that fixes the compass issue.
Also noticed issues with phone using cellular network instead of connected wifi (while downloading an update in market, it said using cellular network)

After I got the latest update, the Notifications sound changed and now all the audio sounds like I have broken speakers. All streaming audio/video also. Can only listen with headphones, but I really need Alarms and Notifications and Ringtones that don't sound horrible.

After amber update, battery drain is the problem, pictures are grainy and yellowish in my 920. Also if you people have noticed no app update is notified from store now. But if you view the app in store and then there is update available. has anyone else faced this issue?
I have unlocked lumia 920.

Make sure in settings under phone update you have the box checked [ ✔ ] Tell me when updates are available for my phone.
because even app updates are phone updates....

You know, I found a bit of a battery drainer last night... In regards to "Double Tap" being a drain... If you have both double tap and high sensitivity active, you can actually turn your phone screen on in your pocket when your leg touches it twice. This can lead to the screen staying on and the lock screen staying active by just rubbing against your leg. Total battery killer right there.
