    Before you flash your phone with the older software, you should know that there is new setting that's probably causing your brightness problem. Go to settings>display+touch. There are two new options that are on my default. Sunlight readability and Brightness with battery saver. If you turn both of those off, you can also just try to set your brightness manually.



    I noticed my brightness fluctuating as well after the update, it's down right annoying, I'll see if your display+touch suggestion works. I set Brightness with Battery Saver to OFF and so far so good :-)

    Mine still has issues with the wireless charger. It locks up overnight.

    My wife's device had the same issue, I also blamed it on the wireless charger since that's where it sat when it would shut off and only come back on after a soft reset, but then I noticed it would just happen with the wired charger as well or when in sleep mode for a very long time. This never happened to mine so we replaced hers and she's been fine since.

    I'm having the exact problem with mine. It would shut off and require a soft reset to turn back on. It only seems to happen late a night for me though.

    Camera is MUCH better. Nothing else about it is terribly noticeable for me. I'm extremely happy with the camera now and the update process was smooth as silk.

    Thanks for the response, CaptDjob. I have tried using my QR code reader with the "display+touch" code that you very kindly posted. I am frustrated that the only option available is "share". Perhaps there will soon be an upgrade for the feature and that will fix the problem. By the way, there were a few upgrades that I installed prior to receiving the system upgrade. I don't recall if one of them was for "display+touch". Was it a separate update or was it included in Portico?

    I can confirm that the white balance on the camera has been improved. I took 2 shots using the exact settings (with Incandescent WB) using my wife's phone (Pre-update) and mine with Portico. Pictures at night would have this weird greenish tint to them, we've even seen those in some sites like engadget. When I took the picture of a pure white background, you can literally see the green spot throughout the center of the sho, especially when side by side with mine which had the correct white. I didn't think to save the shots but I may try again and post later when I get home.

    That is one of the common bricked Lumia bugs. You'll probably need to flash your phone if you are unable to perform a hard reset.

    I got my updates at 5pm yesterday, just in time for me to take pics and videos of our daughter and exchange student in the choir/band concert at their high school. Everything looks nice and the phone seems to be running very well. No problems or issues noted at all...

    Anyone having heat issue after the updates?

    Yes, kind of. I can't tell if it was the update or the phone. I just got this 920 this week because the other one has soooo many issues. And while I wasn't using the new one this week because I wanted to change my Microsoft account, the times that I did use it, it felt fine.

    Then, last night, I set everything up with my new MS/Outlook account. And shortly there after I downloaded the update. Seemed fine until this afternoon I noticed it was suuuuuuper hot. Almost too hot to hold in my hand. But I can't tell if the phone was already having issues or if the update caused it. I did do a lot of email downloads today because I just set up my new Outlook account and had in download allllll the emails. So that may have been the cause, it did seem to get hot shortly after I did that.

    Hold Volume Down and Power until it resets. If that won't work, you'll need to follow the process here:

    Mentioned this in another thread too:
    Amazing Weather HD live tile stopped updating for me, not once since the update yesterday. Only way to get the tile updated is to open the app. Tried unpinning and re-pinning (from within the app), uninstalling, soft-reset and re-installing but nothing works. It worked flawlessly for me earlier. Does anybody with Amazing Weather HD have their tile updating automatically?
    PS: I emailed the developer and am waiting for a reply.

    Has anyone tried installing Skype again since they've updated to Portico? Are we still getting that stuck-syncing problem?

    Side note: took my phone 30 mins for the whole update. To put things into perspective i only have 10.44GB of free space left.

    BAD NEWS!

    My Lumia 920 has restarted itself twice since the update yesterday 1pm. Never had I got this problem before. Plus, after the phone's back on, it seems to revert the brightness to full even though I set (and the system shows) that it's supposed to be at low brightness.

    So to sum it up, Nokia and Microsoft have managed to fix the previously existing problems by migrating them to those handsets that had never experienced the issues before ... Redistribution of frustration I guess ... #NotImpressed.

    Ok... I re-installed it (Skype) after updating to Portico. So far so good with no sync issues. I'll keep checking though.

    how long is the battery supposed to take out of a whole day use? What's the minimum hours before reaching 0% on your Nokia?

    Yes. In my case, it has become even more frequent. The only available option seems to be getting a replacement which I hate as it means I will receive a "like-new" handset. We all know that this essentially means that I'll be getting a "used" phone.

    Performed update on two different 920s...one took it but is performing worse requiring more frequent Soft Reset and battery life also has become worse... The other 920 is now bricked after downloading and rebooting after the install...hard reset doesn't work...Called Nokia they concur with the Bricked assessment suggested I send in for a replacement 7-10 days.... Called AT&T they too did troubleshooting and determined a brick and are overnighting another phone....

    If your device is currently stable I would leave it alone until the next update at least....Portico seems to be a rushed release that is causing more grief than good....

    Well, all I have to say is positive:

    I had issues prior with Bluetooth in my Camry.. where it wouldn't auto-start playing, and where it wouldn't pass data (showing song titles/etc) that is entirely fixed now, started working right off the bat.
    My battery life is better, considerably so.

    But the Bluetooth issue is the one I notice most.. before this update, phone calls would cause my music/etc. to go into "pause" requiring me to manually restart the music OR sometimes it wouldn't restart no matter what. That has went away. Data notes, fix. So whatever went on with the bluetooth stack, much improved.
