    I've noticed some of the animations, typically for the People and Office hubs are now WP8 style instead. Has anyone else noticed that?
    No change for me.

    Weird! my battery was 85% or something like this while the phone was downloading the update, then the system told me that "update will take 10-15 minutes", click on update and now I have the charging logo on screen...
    Same, though I admit my phone was on 13% or so when I started. Guess I'll have to leave it to update overnight.

    Would have been nice if it warned me that there was a minimum charge to update though. Usually simply being on the charger is enough...

    I feel so confused. Can the battery improvement be as strong as this? Since I updated my 1020, the battery has remained at 25% for longer than 3 hours now, connected to Wi-Fi.

    Haven't checked all posts on this thread, but I have actually noticed that Store works more fluently (didn't want to say faster as most of you would have taken it as a joke lol)

    Restart your phone. A thing that the update should do.

    I did restart it. Now after 3 hours it went down to 24%

    I assume it's in a phase of learning as your battery will be of a certain age. Once it's gone through a full cycle the battery percentage will correct itself.

    Having issues since the update to the 8.1 update. I always used to experience a flash of the screen, like a jolt with text or a flash on the background. Sine today's update it flashes much more often. I have a trivia app that now has it very frequently. Happens virtually every time I scroll. Anyone else?
    I used to have the same problem on my 920, turns out that it was related to the auto screen brightness, I set it on medium or high and the problem is gone, haven't got it since 8.1.

    How long have you had 8.1 and do you have the Cortana tile pinned? Just curious b/c you said you haven't seen any battery problems. I also have an Icon and I started seeing seeing rapid unexplained battery drains after a week or so. Did a hard reset and saw the same thing so I ended up going back to 8. A few posts in another discussion say unpinning Cortana helped. I didn't try that before reverting so it'd be good to know what's on Icon owners start screens if they're not having battery problems.
    I have the Icon and only experienced battery problems right after installing the developer preview. It got much better after a few days. No battery problems since then.

    Having a bug after the upgrade. There is an app that need to be update it from the store and when I click tap to retry the update, nothing happen. I restarted the phone and still the app is there and don't want to update.

    Solved: Just tap on the app twice and install the app on the phone, instead of the SD card.

    So I downloaded the original update but never installed it due to the issues everyone was having. It still just notifies me that the update is ready and I tell it to postpone. If I download the new update, will I be able to update directly to that or will I have to install the original update first?

    I noticed that some animations that used to lag a bit are now smoother (at least I haven't encountered any lags so far)
    Did anyone experience the same?

    Are the users who had a lot of "Resuming..." Seeing less of it? I haven't had the issue on my 1020 but others have.

    I find it smoother, better transitions and animations more fluid.

    Yes, much smoother transitions. No more white screen when using Facebook messenger upon resume. WhatsApp opens more reliably from the tile also. Good job Microsoft. Looking forward to battery 🔋 improvements in the Lumia Icon.

    Anyone else getting white screen "flashes" ... When closing email accounts? Getting them when I close out either of my email accounts! Just real quick white flashes in screen! Hmmmp 😵

    Other than that things running well with DP update. Good battery life so far!!

    It seems a lot smoother since I updated. I've had the dev preview since day one, and I've had this update for about....6 hours or so. Definitely seems better, but tomorrow will be more of a test. Since ill be at work all day. *groans*
