    Another poster said that there is actually 3 updates one is for the newer version of 8 then the pre install then the real install..This one seems to be taking a little longer so I am guessing its the real install.
    Oh God! :/ check the message it gives when your phone is switched on

    The updates took a while but I've updated both a Lumia 822 and 520 and both seem to working fine with no added battery drain. The 822 is my daily driver and I've been using 8.1 on it since it's release. I hope your update is successful.

    You have got to be kidding me...it started over again. Wth? I literally had to delete half my apps just to get 639.4mb It was supposedly installing and was at 96% then I got a message saying I needed 346mb and I have 649mb now its downloading the updates AGAIN. This is a headache...

    Well, all update needs some space, even on android and iOS xD. And I remember you that it is a preview for developers, it is not the full experience after a firmware update.

    Success!! I think I broke the record for the longest time it took to update lol Half the day. I am currently playing with it. It seemed kind of laggy and slow at first but after to soft resets its looking faster, I am loving that my other storage problem is gone and will continue playing around with it tonight. This is Effin awesome!! :D was worth it forsure.

    If I do the 8.1 upgrade will I be able to go back to 8.0 using the Nokia Software Recovery Tool?

    From what I have read..Yes but if and only if you own a Lumia Phone.

    My update went so smooth last night, so far I haven't experienced any overheating issue like the others, but the touch still sometimes register it as a tap instead of a swipe.

    You'll lose and miss IMO alot from 8.0. All hubs are messed up, OneDrive isn't working (have to upload directly from app and only ONE picture at a time- I actually had to do hard reset even to enable this) Battery problems, and recently WhatsApp is messing up with everybody (no or delayed notification)

    Only things I'm happy with on 8.1 are notification center and extra tiles on start screen

    You should know that this is unfinished software not intended for your specific phone and as a result there are many missing/incomplete features and various hardware instabilities between different makes and models of phones.

    I am happy with the actual 8.1 improvements, but am overall extremely dissatisfied with usability and personally wish I never updated (i.e. Wi-Fi is now broken for most people who have the same model phone [HTC 8XT] as me and living in a poor service area essentially means my phone is a paperweight)

    I must be the lucky one, I have yet to run into any serious bugs/problems. Just a bit laggy at certain times. But it was way worse on the WP8 for me anyways. It seems really fluid, fast, cortana is just AMAZING for being a beta. I am a bit bothered by the lack of work in the Music and Games hub. But as long as I am able to play music im fine until there bi weekly updates, One drive I really don't use. So don't really care for it. I use bit torrent to sync pics to my computer. I haven't had any battery problems probably because I always have mine on low brightness. All in all I give this update an 8 out of 10. :) Mind you this is only a preview. An impressive one at that. just wait till you meet the finished product.

    Updated to Windows Phone 8.1 and at first there were no issues but now I've started to encounter some. It started our where my Wifi simply wouldn't connect it would say "Wifi is unavailable" so I performed a soft reset and Wifi was fixed again. However now the Camera app wouldn't open it would just sit on a black screen, so now I'm just going to perform a hard reset and start everything fresh.

    I think there is more that a few of us that are happy. I'm liking it a lot so far and haven't had any real issues. I was prepared to do a hard reset but haven't felt the need to so far.
