    If you don't like Notification Center, go to Settings>notifications+actions>Click on the app>Change "Show in action center" to off.

    Sure, I suppose if you're one of the few that don't like it, a global setting would be nice. I suppose you should start your GDR1/Windows Phone 8.2/Windows Phone 9 suggestion list now.

    I am very disappointed in the new music app. I didnt like xbox music on the pc and I didnt want it on here. I wish it worked with Parallax. Besides that everything else is cool, I like the new additions and I even got Data Sense on ATT finally.
    Now im just waiting on the new lock screen app, in the mean time ill be spending more time with the SDK.

    Photos saved to SD do not show in album. Otherwise, all is well. Lots of improvement and plenty potential.

    My Icon feels like a whole new phone. Cortana is amazing. Asked for weather on Wednesday back in Maryland. Said "what about thursday" - she didn't miss a beat. Makes Siri look 8-bit. The single best feature for me is how you insert the cursor in text and then move that cursor. It was super annoying before, now its fast and easy.

    Internet Explorer still sucks. Which makes not being able to change defaults hurt even more.

    What I love:
    • Text message search
    • Cortana can play music
    • InPrivate browsing
    • Start Screen with third row
    • tabs sync from Windows 8.1, works vice versa :)
    • Reading view in IE


    What I hate:
    • Photos app shows recent photos not albums. I may not always want it to show my recent pictures...
    • Comma has been removed from keyboard
    • Screenshot shortcut is different and difficult
    • Some apps (i.e. WPCentral) do not respect the picture background
    • The new Now Playing screen is horrible. They ruined what was awesome about Zune.
    • No social network notifications in Me tile
    • It's difficult to figure out how to pin settings to Action Center

    You can find it in the advanced keyboard options

    Was going to wait for Verizon's release of 8.1 then I heard all the complaining about issues and figured really should wait. NOT! Man am I glad I took the update plunge. This thing is smoother than ever on my icon. Really digging it. Like having a super tune up with tons of new options. Sweet!

    Works very nicely here on 1020. All transitions are faster and snappier. New features rocks and now just waiting for that store and Cortana for EU countries ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

    Initial thoughts... mixed.

    Good:
    Xbox Music app is much better organised
    Podcast app works perfectly, better than expected
    Extra tile space and background images look great
    Cortana Live Tile looks promising
    Notification Center looks great
    Overall transition effects make a nice change
    Seems faster

    Not so good:
    Very underwhelming Cortana functionality as a UK user (as expected, but not to this extent)
    Lag in Games hub, and clutter of games in App list
    Facebook functionality in Messenger hub removed
    No mobile data toggle in Notification Center
    Not as many transparent-compatible tiles as I'd like...yet.

    I'd say the good outweighs the bad, especially since it's clear Microsoft are still working on making Cortana work in the UK, though there's room for improvement all around. =) Removing Facebook from the messenger hub though...damn.

    Having a messaging live tile and messages on the action center seems redundant. Who else thinks that?

    For those of you who might be interested, WP 8.1 runs rather poorly on my Nokia 520. Navigating the OS is generally quite a bit slower. It can take a few seconds to use apps that were previously more or less instantaneous (search, messaging, other "built in" apps) and being forced to use the new music app also makes playing music quite a pain as well. Although there had been rumors that the resume time for apps on 512 mb devices would be decreased, this does not seem to be the case at all. While all of the new features are nice, they come at the cost of a performance penalty, at least on the 520. :(

    Paired with the message counter on the Lock Screen too, you have a fair point. I'll have to just see how things work in actual day-to-day practice once the notifications actually start coming in.

    very sad !! :( i was hoping that those rumours (though they were against common sense) were true. And i already knew the new music app was going to be a pain. But even search/messaging ? Very sad !
    Do post after a day too, telling how it is going on, and whether it got faster or not.. (just hoping)
