    Something I discovered on my HTC 8XT, and I'm assuming work similarly on other devices. With headsets and Bluetooth devices that have a function to use a voice dialer, you can use this option to bring up Cortana (Cortana replaces the voice dialer in Windows Phone 8.1.) For example, on the earbuds that came with the HTC 8XT, it has a button that you use to answer/hang-up calls and play/pause/skip tracks (similar to the ControlTalk feature on Beats headphones.) Press and hold and you have Cortana! You speak to her through the microphone on the headset, so you can use it while your phone is in your pocket. This works great with the voice commands for Xbox Music, which is adding playlist support in the next update. If Xbox Music becomes even more integrated Cortana, it will likely make the whole experience almost completely hands free!

    When playing a game you have to press the search button twice to launch Cortana/Bing. No more accidental button presses.

    L920: to bring back the older "Cobalt" color scheme and aspect:

    Go to Settings -> Display -> Set the first bar to the extreme left (Cold), and the second bar to the extreme right (Vivid).

    Enjoy your new calibrated display :)

    * typing this using word flow keyboard.. So awesome!!
    Does this automatically turn off your Wi-Fi when you're not around your favorite places?

    Ok so wow, so now you can send your songs via Email. In the now playing section of Xbox music bring of the menu, and hit share. It'll send song info and a full .wma of the song you're listening to.
    Can anyone confirm this? Doesn't work here (germany). If i bring up the menu i'll only get the ablity to put in into playlists or open the settings for the music app itself.

    While playing videos on YouTube, double tap on video to go to full screen and exit. No need to tap on a button.

    If you drag the action center only slightly, it only shows you the quick actions and you can use it in a very handy way.

    See the screenshots:

    I think no one knew about this. If this is redundant, then the Moderators may remove this.

    Choosing a completely black image for your start screen background will turn the live tiles white.

    It's also an efficient way to separate categories.

    Open Cortanas notebook and add things like places for example. Ask her to direct you to "name of place" and your satnav will open. Thought it was cool ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    Hey all...searched through some forums and I didn't see this mentioned much anywhere so I hope its not a repeat. Only thing I did see is that one person was wondering where this feature went because they thought it disappeared due to Cortana being enabled...well, I found the "Local Scout" feature, somewhat by accident.

    Open the native Bing Maps, give it a sec to find your location, and the "scout" feature is available. Lower left "button" on the bottom banner.

    I just discovered that hard resetting your phone without restoring the backup data works much better for problems with lag. I had done a hard reset before with the restored data and the lag was unbearable. Now the phone runs almost without any lag.
