I have the 1520 on wp 8.1. The bugs are crazy. And it's expected. Problems so far, wifi cuts off randomly. Power button won't work. Me tile won't post to all my social media apps.
Welcome to the all-new Windows Central Forums! - We're still moving some things around, so you may see a few quirks here and there, but we're working on getting things fully completed as soon as possible. For now, take a look around, and if you run into any major issues, please let us know in this thread!
Go to settings - about - reset your phoneHow do I conduct this "hard reset" lol
Never have a problem with the power button but have other issues after the upgrade and hard reset fixed all the issues I had.Are there others that have these issues? Or is it just me?
You know what pisses me off, the fact that basically everyone was shouting that this is the final version of 8.1, that everyone should install it, and now that there are bugs in it - in a developer preview! - people are suddenly changing their opinion on this stuff.basically think this as a beta program :/ it's not the final build...there'll be bugs with it

You should have asked on the thread.... And i guess there was an article about the DP on WPC.The final build won't be available until next month or the month after that! We never know!
But basically updating to 8.1 was your choice! Should have done your homework!
If this was the final build why would you have to go through all the pain like installing preview for developers! Or signing up for an account!
Please.... Wait for a while ��.... This is not at all the final build.... The final build will not have bugs with it...
Might have been best if you'd checked before posting that.
All you need to know about the Windows Phone 8.1 'Preview for Developers' | Windows Phone Central
As a5cent has said WP8.1 as delivered through the Preview for Developers is the Final OS version and will be indistinguishable from the version that gets distributed with the official updates in a few months time. It is Not a beta. The official updates though will contain an updated firmware also, specific to your device.
I just said "think" of it as a beta!
There are still some options which are not available to us like usb settings! Which is shown by Cortana but not displayed in the settings!
Sure the firmware i totally forgot about it lol!! I'm having no problem whatsoever in any of my phones with the 8.1 :/ which is weird since many people are complaining about itConsidering how many non-developers use the developer preview, it might actually be smarter to call it a "developer beta" (despite not being a beta), just to get expectations more in-line with reality ;-)
And where would you expect those parts of the software that interface directly with the hardware, like USB settings, to reside? Possibly in the firmware? ;-)
Anyway, don't think you need to be sorry for anything.
