So you tried iOS on her 620 and it was better?

Who's enrolled in the developer preview program is supposed to have the final build now or only the Lumia Cyan update will bring the final build?

Dev preview is final build. Just waiting on firmware updates to fix battery problems and enable Bluetooth 4.0 LE

I have a 630 now because my 920 died, or at least was close to. It's a nice budgetphone with only the screen being really the "shitty" standout. Bring on the next flagship Nokia/MS.

I really wish the FB chat integration will be put back in the final version. It's so cumbersome to have to open the slow ass app to reply. The rest seems good.

Unfortunately it will not be coming back at least for the foreseeable future.

Looking forward to this update on my 920 any idea if this is July for the UK as well?

Also currently working on an 8.1 app (currency converter). I should look at adding Cortana support to it...

And now the wait for Lumia Cyan begins.
I also wonder how long it will take for Cortana to support my native language (Dutch). Apple also doesn't support it with Siri but they just enabled it in English so you're not missing out on any features.

And I know you can just change your language and enable Contrana but I would like to keep my phone's interface in Dutch.

Not that simple, you need to change the phone's region to enable Cortana, which in turn will mean you'll be locked out of your local country apps (if they're region locked).

It's all about the form factor. The LG G3 is very nice due to the shape of its sides and back despite having a massive 5.5-inch screen. Meanwhile, the smaller Xperia Z2 looks and feels like a goddamned brick.

Square lines = PITA. That's why I like my 920 so much. It's a beastly phone in terms of thickness and weight, yet very nice to hold.

Yeah I guess some payment apps might be region locked. However, there are also apps like the Comedy Central app that are only available in the American store but after reverting my region back to The Netherlands the app still works fine.
I wonder if Microsoft will someday patch this behaviour out.

I love WP, but I hate 8.1

What have they done with my hubs, man! The Messaging hub is now SMS only, I cannot chat with my wife who is still on 8.0 and uses the Messenger service. Skype hardly works, and just like Facebook they are now cumbersome seperate apps. Same with podcasts and radio in the Music hub and social integration in the people hub.

Sorry I think it's all backwards. And yeah, the Action Center. It's only use is to shut up Android fanboys that riducled us for not having one. Well I didn't really need it, I'd rather have the main OS wasn't borked like it is now.

Please tell me at least Skype will be native to the Messaging hub in the near future. Please.

Not entirely excited by that update... of course I would have been if Cortana was supported here. :/
Being able to swipe for back/forward commands in IE will be appreciated though. And I hope the calendar compatibility with Google will be complete (right now I don't think entries on my phone are pushed to the Google servers)

The Xbox Music app is making me so mad now!

Before it worked fine, now whenever I try to play a song, I get an error pop up I have to tap away saying "ERROR! COULD NOT FIND THIS FILE ON YOUR PHONE!", yet after tapping that away, If I just hit the play button the music starts. Every time I try to play a song. It's a nuisance that keeps me from hearing my music for a few seconds.

Like Funky Papa said, it's all about the form factor. The 920 is huge for a phone with a 4.5" screen. The 930 has a 5" screen and is barely bigger.

Like I wrote in the OP, the custom lock screen feature is still in development and you're going to need a device with 1 GB RAM to use them, so anything below the Lumia 820 is out.

Will the WP 8.1 version of IE be able to go full screen (i.e. hide the address bar) like the fantastic tablet equivalent? From the videos i've seen, it doesn't appear to unless in Reading view, but i still hold out hope for it.

IE does not have a full screen mode anymore. IE8 in Windows Phone 7 had it, when you rotated to landscape mode, but people complained about it and now the address bar is always visible.

Right now it's the Lumia 930 and 1520. Both have a Snapdragon 800 quad-core at 2.2 GHz and 2 GB RAM. The 1525 is supposed to come out soon and got a Snapdragon 801, which is just an overclocked 800.

Then we might get completely new devices this Fall.
