    No option to restrict what apps run in the background?? What about keeping WiFi on when screen is off?

    Holy cow, swype style keyboard, drop down notifications, individual volume control with vibrate toggle. Extra tile sizes..............I almost took a vacation day at work just to play with it all.

    Such a great update. I was excited all day and now i'm even more happy !!!

    Here's my review :

    1- Notifications Center is really a great feature , now all the incoming whatsapp and fb messages show up to me quickly.
    2- I love the 3rd column ( Lumia 920 ) , now i can manage to access some Live Tiles easily , i used to have a pretty long start screen with over 50 Live Tiles ...
    3- The Start Background is a beautiful way to customize your phone and it looks more beautiful than ever.
    4- The New IE11 is just WOOOOOW. So fast , So smooth , plays video directly without lock screen , now i feel like i'm running a PC Browser. It's Just WOOW. Absolutely Perfect. But I hope UC Browser devs will be able to take the new WEBGL / HTML 5 capabilities of IE11, because IE is still lacking in terms of download management and UI.
    5- Love The New Podcast App since i watch them a lot. Good organisation , easy minimalist UI , Good Search Engine (y).
    6- The New Windows Store App has better details , better UI , app history. Makes it easier to find good apps.

    Still , i have some questions.

    After i installed the 8.1 update , The Music App doesn't show artist pictures in the background. Normal ?
    No Data Connection Quick settings on Action Center , why ?
    There's no more background tasks menu on system settings , so i don't know where i can activate/deactivate background tasks ( for live tiles updating ) ...

    But Overall , a very good update with a lot of new functionnalities , i feel like i have a brand new phone :)

    Finding some of my accounts stuck in a never ending "syncing" status since the upgrade. And this has drained my battery 30% in the last hour. Soft reset doesnt do much as they go back in to syncing.

    Also initial impressions show some lag in some areas. Whatsapp seems a little laggy now going back and forth into it and writing messages. The new Xbox Hub is very laggy for me and my avatar is laggy also.

    ​Still testing..

    Volume slider! Data Sense on AT&T! Notification center! It takes hours though and it nearly drained my battery..

    Data sense will probably be removed with official AT&T WP8.1 update

    Is it just me or the 8.1 update is a little slower and mon sluggish? I'm on an HTC 8s. Anyone else notice this?

    I did a hard reset but it still slower that before...

    Nope!
    It was slower in the initial stages! Give some time to your phone to set everything up!
    And then it *seems faster* than WP8!

    WP8.1 is awesome, but the new Music app is really bad... Since it's an app now it takes a while to load the app, and then when you go to your music collection it takes a really long time to load the list of artists or albums if you have big collection. And everytime you launch the app it has to reload the music collection... I'm sad...

    But on the good side, Podcasts now work in Canada!!!!
