    Hate to say it because I really do like my WP8, but without .wav support it's a waste for me. If this update does not fix that.....Android here I come.

    Nothing. And I'm sure nothing will happen except some bugfixes and fm radio. As we saw in Portico...

    I'd really love it if the Windows logo becomes a notification light. I think I heard something about the 928 being able to do this, but only when the phone needs an update or while it's charging or something. I'd want it for apps like e-mail/sms/facebook/being able to find my phone in the dark/etc. Seems like such a waste to wake up the screen every few minutes while I'm listening to music to see if I have any notifications. So I'm expecting some sort of notification light. Otherwise, I'm pretty satisfied!

    Would also really appreciate Data Sense, but I'm trying to not get my hopes up for that one. I have a feeling Rogers will thwart that from happening somehow...
    Huawei are doing something nifty with the keys at the bottom, they change colour when the colour scheme is changed. However a configurable notification light would be a welcome addition.

    Improved Skype
    and being able to attach videos in chat apps from your library. I seriously cannot think of a reason why MS will not allow the OS to do this. It's embarrassing in 2013.

    Lol WP doesn't need a task manager....handles tasks great from my experience. Besides when you kill all task like that they eventually start back up (in Android at least) and that's only cached processes really. I could be wrong though

    In what way? You cannot get to those without getting past the lock screen.

    Many bug fixes. More stability and improved battery life resulting from it.

    People have been telling me that I don't answer my phone...well, that's because sometimes the phone simply doesn't ring...Basically, the phone kinda "times out" every now and then and unless I first make a call, I won't be able to receive one. This bug should have been fixed long ago because it's unacceptable for a device of this caliber.
    The same thing happens when I browse the web using my data plan...If I'm on the move and lose signal at some point, I can't get it back unless I make a call first...so I just dial voice mail and immediately get my signal back.

    My expectation is to release as fast as possible, because the delay in releasing GDR2 is distressing.
    Dean Hepper and mrdeeds_72 like this.

    If you want to know whats in GDR2 just read a Lumia 925 review or post a question in that forum. There's no mystery, it doesn't bring any significant changes so don't get your hopes up.

    How about the update for the 8x was dated to be released yesterday (July 15th), it is now 01:17 on July 16th and low and behold, no update! What's up with that?

    The big thing I want fixed is the camera app. The patch that improved daylight performance also brought an inability to focus. It's frustrating as hell having to take 10+ photos of a subject, taping around the scene to see if the phone will find something to finally focus on.

    While upgrade Amber is still in the testing phase for the Nokia WP8, ATIV S (Samsung WP8) without carrier subsidies in Germany have already received GDR2 according to information that some sites are reporting since yesterday!

    I saw the release dates of the GDR2 to certain phones, but I noticed that the Lumia 928 and 925 weren't on there does anyone know when they will be available to those two?

    I've read numerous articles that Amber / GDR2 update will enable buletooth 4.0 functionalities in Lumia 720, 620, 820 and 520. Does 920 already have BT 4.0?
