    Hello!

    I have a question about battery life, performance and picture quality in WP 8.1 Developer Preview vs Official release.

    When I initially got my Lumia 1020 pictures had yellowish colour. They fixed it with Black, but after entering a Developer Preview yellow tint came back. Now I have WP 8.1 Update 1 and still yellow.
    Does official WP 8.1 for 1020 fixes this bug or improves battery life?

    Thank you in advance!

    The version of 8.1 that comes with the developers preview is the official, the tint should be fixed with the next firmware update, Lumia Cyan. Anyway you can go back to 8 with a PC program, browse the forum :p

    Is the camera app the problem? It could be a hardware issue. Do a hard reset in settings> about> reset your phone, but first back up everything!

    Yellow-tinted photos issue in Lumia 1020 was a known bug fixed with Lumia Black update. When Developers Preview 8.1 came, the tint came back and it's still on in WP 8.1 Update1. IMO it's a thing that Nokia fixes in OS version for a particular phone model, but I can be wrong. So, the question is not to go back to WP8 but whether OFFICIAL WP 8.1 version for Lumia 1020 is yellow tint-free. It was never an app-related problem.

    From my extensive experience the os does not affect the white balance as the camera/jpeg algorithm is tied to the firmware. It was also not fixed on Black. But there is an appreciable difference on Cyan. Especially indoors.

    My Camera is dead arter flashing CYAN. The problems are related to WP 8.1 and main Camera drivers. Nokia Does not seem to have a clue about this bug. Only happens to some lumia 1020.

    Have you factory reset? Deleted the camera apps and reinstalled?
