    And now i just found out that this update is more useful for me than amber. Upon full charge. And that too with double tap on lol 👍👌 Expected 1day21hours whereas after amber 1day12hours and when I bought the phone it was 1day18hours. That's why I hated amber. I love Lumia black update.

    Okay this is surprising but my battery backup has really almost doubled after the black update, on wifi it is outstanding, showing 2 days 8 hours on full charge. Arent we supposed to get new ringtones from Black update?

    Those are basically estimates and not really the actual back up time. The backup time varies from usage. I've noticed a slight drop in my battery backup. Or maybe I've been playing too much games on it. Or maybe both.

    Do you guys get arrows on the WiFi icon after black?

    Nope. Just checked. No arrows on the Wifi notif icon. Tried downloading a game through wifi with mobile data active. As posted sometime ago in the site, I didn't see that in my 720 and 920.

    Weird though. But doesn't bother me much. Doesn't affect any functionality. So I'm cool with that.

    Actually insider did show that the backup has increased along with lesser discharge rate even with 2G on.

    Hello everyone! Black update for 720 here in our country hasn't arrived yet. Since you guys from India already got the update and this thread is so active, I've decided to seek answers here. I just want to know if double tap to wake really drains battery and also the new glance. I badly need these features but I'm afraid it can be bad for the battery. Please let me know. Thanks!

    For me DTTW no and Glance yes but not that exorbitant.

    Ahh that's the thing you see. If you keep 2G on at all times it doesn't drain as much battery than 3G. I keep my 3G data on at all times and hence experience lower battery backup than many other users.

    Be it Glance or Glance 2.0, it doesn't make any difference in the 720 because its an IPS LCD screen and not an AMOLED screen. That means in Glance mode unlike AMOLED devices, the entire screen is 'on'; but albeit at a very very low brightness. AMOLED devices light up only the portion on screen that needs to be displayed. Hence the new Glance notifs donot affect battery backup in any scenarios.

    As for DTTW, it does drain the battery. But its negligible. I keep it on and its a treat to use.

    Well frankly telling you DTTW is best the feature I have got from this update really! And the battery loss is negligible to say. Just 1 hour in the 24 hours. I prefer this over glance.

    Are you using it for the free subscription or your using a coupon? I uninstalled it after 6 months.

    1) Use 1 Mbps connection (i.e. fast internet connection)
    2) Nokia care normally takes 2-3 hours to update phone. Try out some other nokia dealer. Or take it to the place you purchased your phone and ask them to do it for free.
    for 1Mbps connection, it'll take only 30-40 mins to download the update and 10-20 mins to update the phone.
    Dont worry your phone will be updated.
    In case you have 3g, use it to download the update. And in 2G you'll not be able to download updates.

    Mate I have 256 kbps on my wifi at home and its fast enough to update my phone and I have also updated my phone via 2G. I guess the speed doesnt matter here, what matters is the consistency of the bandwidth and connection. If the connection is interrupted it will not download. You dont need a 1 MBPS you need a stable internet connection. Good enough :)
