    Thank you for sharing here..

    So far, what features you really wanted on windows phone 8.1??

    I think they should makes another progression and main feature that we can use only on windows phone OS (especially WP 8.1)

    I think it feels complete on the built in feature part. Now just needs a bit of refinement. Wonder what they got planned for wp9.

    Huge improvement, but little things like the horrendous music app (still after 2 updates), a backup that never completes make me wonder if we will be beta testing 8.1 for months after its official release.

    I've been onboard since 2011 when I started with my Trophy, came from an OG Droid. Have the DP on a Lumia 520, use a Lumia 928 as my main phone.

    Glad I kept the 928 on WP8. Absolutely hate a lot of the UI/UX changes, they kill it for me. WP8.1 feels like a second rate Android clone at this point to me. Will probably switch to iPhone for the first time in the fall. :/

    I was fine with 8.0, and 8.1 is great.
    I love it.

    My only problem is battery life. When I first got my 920 on Amber/GDR2, it would be around 30~50% IIRC when I got home. Now it's ~40-10% ish.
    still relatively content.

    Im kind of torn with it. I like alot of the new features, but it also feels like some things got broke in the process. My biggest peeve is the atrocity that is Xbox Music. My phone is my sole device that I listen to music on, so you can imagine my frustration with the 5 steps back that it seems to have taken. Im also pissed that when I try to share a link, that it literally just shares a link and not a description as it did on 8.0. I no longer share anything to facebook because of this and it really irks me.

    I do love the new start screen with 3 standard tiles wide and the transparent tiles. Sure its mostly cosmetic, but it sure spruces things up. I also enjoy the notification center more than I thought I would.

    There was a 3rd update yesterday for Xbox music. Its getting a little better with each update, but still a bit too slow on fixing things. Not sure why the live tile isn't fixed yet. The hubs tile was my favorite tile since 7.5 and it sucks not having it.

    Xbox music was never my primary music app, so I never invested much energy in opinion of it. I will agree about features needing to added that made it unique like the active tile showing the music being played. I personally think WP should somehow link Zune to Xbox music. On a bigger scale, I would gladly take the issues with Xbox music with the other enhancements like Action center and cortana. The start screen looks amazing with the transparent tiles. I love IE11 and how you can modify the reading mode. Video editing, and the lists go on and on.

    I know, I was talking about the update from yesterday. It still stinks.

    8.1 is fine...no problems here.
    I was good with 8.0 also.











    People keep wanting more and more unnecessary OS bolt ons so we can say "see WP is just like the other 2"
    I'm afraid much more will just turn WP into a Ferrari with a phony plastic hood scoop that slows it down.

    I bought my first WP 8 months ago and I love the 8.1 update. Is still in beta. But WP just keeps getting better and better. I โค it.

    I'm indifferent. The stuff that works, works well - notification center (of which I really like the settings shortcuts most), new background...but the stuff that's ****ty is still ****ty - Xbox Music app. I'm hopeful it will become more refined - I won't use my Z Ultra as a daily driver unless MSFT does something completely boneheaded to the Nth degree. Still, i like the overall direction MSFT is headed in, so I'll ride it out. Can I get back to you in a year's time? ๐Ÿ˜Š

    Good one mate. But music? Pandora and Nokia Mix Radio do the trick for me for now until Xbox music gets it together.

    I spend 3 hours daily commuting by public transit - rail and bus combined. Steaming music isn't convenient for me with almost half my commute being underground. The old Zune player on WP7 was one of the big things that made me jump on the platform. It is still the best music player IMO in the mobile space for my needs. So how I survive now is I own because a 8X and 925. I use my 8X as my music centric device (even though I keep a few songs on my 925). That'll remain on 8.0 until the Music app is seriously updated. I can tolerate it on my 925, but not on both devices.

    So yes, music.

    Understood. But you can do offline mixes with Pandora and Nokia Mix Radio also. :-).

    Understood. But I'm like many people who are pounding MSFT about this sham of an stock music app - you took away the good stuff to reinvent the wheel to move us forward. So I'm waiting patiently before updating my 8X. Otherwise, 8.1 runs great on my 925 and overall, I like where MSFT is going.

    Easy there MSFT will get it together. Be patient. I believe I could be wrong. That MSFT steps aside not to take all the credit and allow way for other devs to breakthrough with their imagination. Is only right. My two cents. But I could be mistaken.
