    Hi,
    on Friday I bought Lumia 735 with Denim installed. Below are screenshots from my old Lumia 620 with Cyan and from new Lumia 735 with Denim. Where is the difference? I don't see any.

    there's a difference in features , there are more features in denim than cyan.

    Well this is a firmware update so most of the stuff updated are under the hood that improves performance. However your phone now has the Windows phone 8.1 GDR 1 so you get new features like live tiles folder πŸ“ and apps corner and many others.

    Most of the above features I already have on cyan so I'd say its as above and they are under the hood stuff.

    Well, I can't check Cortana and Store Live Tile, but everything else is available in Cyan too. I think this list you provided belongs to WP 8.1 update 1 more than to a denim unique features.

    As I wrote, I bought 735 on Friday at local store here in Prague, Czech Republic, Europe union. All 830, 735 and 730 are shipped with Denim on board. I found this site with list of denim updates, so now its clear that some things provides WP 8.1 U1 and some others are exclusive Lumia features. conversations.nokia.com/2014/09/04/lumia-denim-update/

    Don't feel too bad. All of us Verizon users don't even have Cyan yet. And we're Americans!

    Denim and Cyan are firmware updates. This is more stuff how hardware inside the phone is working with each other. the original list is the windows phone operation system update list. The nokia/MS homepage does not help at all finding information about cyan or Denim. they simply list the recent OS updates. All the stuff you will find will be related to the OS. Cyan and Denim could mean that the camera algorithm works better or your Bluetooth works better if you had problems or even your battery would be connected in a different way to save use more energy

    Denim is Update 1 + firmware update, the models that will benefit greatly from the Lumia Denim update are the phones running the Snapdragon 800 SOC. All the other models will get the cosmetic changes (+ other features relevant tied to the phones tier) from Update 1 and everything else will be under the hood changes / tweaks.

    Denim is the firmware update delivered side by side with Update 1. They are NOT the same

    Strange. I have a Nokia Lumia 822 for Verizon and I recently got the Denim update. It actually automatically installed. Before, I had Black. Now, I get all the Denim features, though.
