    Used up almost 1GB space in phone memory, before the update download started i had 1005 MB free, it dropped to 66 MB(see screenshot) while preparing installation.
    Installation reached 99% but when i pressed back to see free space and came back to update menu, it showed 95%. This happened twice.

    Forgot about the podcasts & radio:
    Very basic and minimal UI. But it finally works. :D

    What i noticed is, Data sense was installed only today in this update but it still knows the data usage and is showing it on live tile, so WP8 is storing all this info in background from the start.

    EDIT: FLIP TO SILENCE is working too. A teeny tiny bit laggy(like 0.1s) as compared to my 5800 Xpressmusic. :P

    Gallery thumbnails seem to be of lower resolution now, maybe to increase speed?

    In addition, I noticed the battery performance has increased a bit and camera autofocus works better and takes sharper photos.

    is data sense carrier dependent? i am on BSNL, lumia 520.

    amber is nothing just some tweaks done by nokia and released new lens called smart cam. The main focus should be on general release distribution 2 made by Microsoft.(gdr2).all the performance, battery improvement, FM radio and bug fixes in OS is handled by Microsoft. nokia added flip to silence which was earlier on my lumia 900 now ported back to windows phone 8 series by nokia(520-1020),adjust screen colour profile is a move by nokia as this feature is hardly seen on smartphones these days. Glance , double tap was first seen on nokia n8(Symbian) and now ported to windows 8 :) ,call blocking is also a nice move as it was the most requested feature in lumia ( Samsung ativ series have this on windows phone devices before the gdr2). htc seeded the gdr2 update(no software was released or tweaks by htc :D just gdr2 update by Microsoft) earlier which created bugs and issues in phones like hearing music for longer time bricked the phone ( the audio chip related problem). htc later resolved this issue by seeding another update to the htc windows phone series. there are still some bugs in amber update seeded by nokia (images taken by camera on l920 shows different colour(blue shows green,pro cam bugs).hope I made some the clarification discussed here.glance screen is a huge battery sucker on l920(due to non amoled display as it has an IPS display).

    Yes, I noticed an improvement in battery life too. And I think it is more linear.

    Tomorrow will probably be the last day of owning Lumia 820.

    I have been using GDR2+Amber for a while now User Experience has improved a little but its like one step backward.

    Why ?
    I ran into bluetooth issues with BMW AFTER the update , However , BT streaming working fine on Chevy Cruze (worked fine before update and now too).
    Firmware on the car-computer-system is latest one possible as far as I know.

    Before update , I used to listen to music and answer calls using BT system and it also downloaded contact photos to show on system's screen whenever someone calls but Now everything is f****** up.

    Its not fault with car for sure because all other devices working fine with it except WP8 , its definitely problem on MS.

    At first (in 2012) WP8 had issues with cars (Mostly ford cars or something I don't remember) but now MS screwed up for others as well.
