    On a Lumia 830 I noticed a severe decrease of battery life after installing DP. By example, during the night it went from 100% to 90% on idle. It usually goes down to 98%. So I decided to go back to official OS. I did a hard reset and started with a fresh install. But now I see features that I thought they belong to DP (cellular data toggle, battery percent on battery tile, google search on IE...). What's happening?
    Btw, OS version in 8.10.14219.341.

    So ultimately I have to run Lumia Software Recovery Tool for getting rid of Preview.

    Yes, a hard reset leaves the OS and firmware intact. The Recovery Tool is your only option.

    I think developer is a really bad thing for non-developer, you shouldn't try it

    So the 830 ships with 8.1.1 + Lumia Denim, right?

    ​Why the Preview for Developer then? Just curious what the motivation was.

    I chose to run DP for the google search on IE and battery percent on native battery tile.

    Does this Worth the trip ?

    Sure it does as long as I choose to do so and know all alternatives and before and after results. It's all about the trip.

    Live folders, Battery percent on Battery live tile, Snooze option with the Alarm app. I was on DP, went back to official cyan, then couldnt live without the said options. I am back to DP

    I was on P4D until August, then I switched phones and never went back. I don't really care so much for the Live Folders, although I can see the use. It just isn't me. I like my 3rd party Battery App which gives me lots of Live Tile info and Glance/Lock Screen percentage as well...

    I DO miss customized snooze. That's the only one.

    Anyway Thanks for the input, mdau and grininja... I like finding out some of the reasons people are on P4D... If any one else wants to chime in that would be great.
