    I've never been happier with an update than now. Everything i wished for is here
    1. File picker (not really a file manager but finally i can upload or send whatever I want). But I'm betting that there will be third party file managers, or maybe onedrive will be tweaked to support local storage browsing.
    1a. Install to SD card
    2. Action center
    3. Separate volume controls
    4. Backgrounds
    5. Redesigned store
    6. More tiles

    cortana is cool too, but it's us only :(

    Thought I was the only one that had duplicate photos. Also, if you try and delete one of them they all dissapear, very annoying.

    Although I like the update, his concept looks like a better evolution of the start screen and satisfies most peoples complaints about the OS not being customizable.

    I still cant understand why the had to make the action center a swipe down instead of a swipe from the left.

    Swiping down compleeeetly contradicts the wp8 design language. Never ever has there anything to swipe down from. A beatiful google now like/notification/shortcut area could have easily added left from the home screen.

    That would have made the experience so much more consistent. Now its just a boring rip-offs of how androids and ios do it for years. Feels uninspired and rushed.

    Still... better this than no notificiation center

    because the action centre it can be open while you are using apps, and swipe from left is already used by other apps

    They did not use swipe right because that is the command to dismiss live tile notifications. Besides that there has been swipe from the top all the time albeit limited.

    Personally for what I see, I can say that any doubts I had about leaving windows phone later this year have been mostly assuaged as I am quite impressed.

    That being said I do hope this big update increases the app quality and puts us on par with the other os version of the apps

    Case in point...vine on windows phone sucks and 6sec is better than vine but still has its issues. Not to mention instagram is crap.

    I dont recall any app that uses swipe down or any system UI element (besides the status"bar") that featured slide down.

    I also dont see why it would interfere with the notification dismiss slide

    Does 8.1 fix the "other" storage in 8.0?

    I'm concern about 2 things. In the attempt to par iOS and Android in software customization and all these new features (which is good and adds more value), but, would the software performance, stability and efficiency be the major priority yet? Like being improved for hardware as we can see on WinPhone 8, or will requires more usage and hardware tweaks as we can see on Android everytime the companies add new features?

    The second concern is about the free licence of a Windows Phone base software that Microsoft will release, so more companies can build from it the OS for their devices. Isn't it what Android do? Wouldn't Windows Phone be becoming an Android?

    I'm worried because I don't want Windows Phone to lose the essence of efficiency and harmony with hardware.

    That's been fixed since GDR2... quite a long time ago.

    are you kidding ? I'm on black, and i have 1.2 GB of others out of the 7.2 GB of my onboard storage , and that too is toned down by a lot of hard work and ingenuity on my part. Others storage cant be fixed because it is the place where wp caches your photos thumbnails, music info, artist info, album arts, live tiles, and huge number of things. They're important for the phone to run smoothly. But there is a lot of useless stuff there too (like data of apps which have been uninstalled, it does keep some old things for reasons known to extra terrestrial beings :-P) which needs optimisation. I dont know whether 8.1 addresses that issue, it better do !

    Those you with other storage problems, I had to reset my phone for those to be cleaned up. It appears that the new updates don't clean up the problem if it already exists, but does keep it from happening in the future. I have not had more than 500 MB in other storage, but before resetting my phone it was around 8 GB.

    oh good ! I had done a lot of searches regarding it, but you're the first person who mentioned that it doesn't recur after a hard reset. I plan to reset in a while, I'll see what it leads to. But there's one thing, it hadn't been fixed in GDR2, because my phone had got GDR2 preloaded.

    who said that ? I should expect the dev preview to be out at about 11 PM IST (the windows 8.1 update 1 came out at that time).

    Strange thing to say, all of what would be on the update was on the Internet etc etc and now you are disappointed ? 😄
