    Just checked my 820 for phone updates. Spinning gears right now! O2 UK SIM only. I'll keep you posted.

    Strangely I know some people who have the same 920 product codes/country variants as my 920 who have gotten the update but mine tells me I'm up to date. This update process is more random than the lottery!

    It does seem random, doesn't it. I always seem to get updated very early, which surprises me as I'm not on a phone contract but SIM only, though I did buy the phone from O2 and it is O2 branded. Anyway, survived it. Always a worrying time, when I hear how other people's phones get bricked.

    Haven't had much of a play yet but but I can tell you this, although it has been reported previously, I think. The new "storage check" only appears (as the last item in Settings) if you go into then out of "phone storage" in Settings. Weird. A feature, or a bug before we've started. Incidentally, just installing the update freed 250MB.

    Says:

    OS version: 8.0.10211.204
    Firmware revision number: 1232.5957.1308.0001
    Hardware revision number: 1.0.0.0
    Radio software version: 1.0.202093.3
    Chip SOC version: 8960

    So, I guess yes.

    Cool. Luckily I've got the patience of a saint so I'm happy to wait for the update. Does this update have the "double tap" to unlock feature, or is that a different update we have to wait for?

    A double tap doesn't seem to do anything. Maybe I've got crap fingers, but I've tried all sorts of double taps (glad I'm not doing this in public) to no avail. I wouldn't get too excited about "storage check" either. It's early days, so maybe I'm missing something, but it looks like you can only clear temporary files. Saved me 1MB! I can't see a way of clearing "other", which for me is sitting at 512MB. Maybe I need to get over to the 920 forum as they've had the update a while and see what they say about it.

    I wouldn't worry about that 512 of MB in the other storage folder. This folder reserves storage for the OS to use dynamically and will free up storage for you if it's needed for apps etc. As for the double tap to unlock, is there a setting for it under Settings > Lock screen? If not, then there's probably another update on its way.

    Double tap feature will come in a newer 1308 update or a totally new firmware. It should be ready around summer. It may already be a part of the firmware but may have to be unlocked by forth coming Nokia system-app updates via the Store.

    Ha. 512, and I work in electronics and computing and the significance of the number escaped me! But how do you know that WorzelGummage? I'm intrigued.

    Looks like ttsoldier knows his stuff too. Nothing under Lock Screen.

    Do you guys work for M$ or Nokia or something???

    The "Other" folder under storage has been discussed at length before and it's been agreed that the OS reserves whatever amount it wants to keep the system running smooth and fast. It does however free up that space if an app needs it. The problem was though that it would fill up with temp. files that couldn't be removed, until now that is with the 1308 firmware.

    The reason I asked about the double tap to unlock was because I was under the impression that the next update after Portico would be the GDR2 update which also adds FM radio support.

    GDR2 | Windows Phone Central

    Looks like we have a bit more waiting to do for that update then.

    Now us 920 owners have to wait even longer for the 1308 update as it has now been pulled due to some connectivity problems.

    Thanks for enlightening me, WorzelGummage. I knew the "other" storage had been discussed at length but I'd missed the mechanics behind how it worked. Seems fair enough, I suppose. I have to say at the moment I'm a bit underwhelmed by this update. Don't get me wrong, I appreciate any improvement, it's just I was expecting a bit more. Maybe I'd talked it up in my mind a bit too much. Means we've still got some good things to look forward to, hopefully.

    I know what you mean. The Portico update brought very little to the table. We'll probably have to wait until the Autumn for any significant or major update.

    No "1308" update here, still on "1249". I am on Vodafone UK and they are not the best for updating.
