Enjoy Windows Phone 8.1
Windows Phone 8.1. Really impressed with the update. I am from India. The all previously promised features are available along with this update.The action centre and cortana are the best. WP Central has given a detailed guide how to set cortana in non US regions.
Theere is also a change in the animation of UI, esp when you open an app and close.
Though the update comes a lot improvements, it has also demerits. The main thing is the absence of in built facebook sharing ( now it is thru the fb app) and in built fb messenger. Also, new Xbox music performs a bit laggy.
The closure speed of apps are pretty fast now.
When it comes to cortana, since I have changed the region and language settings in my phone, she wont be a great help always. But she performs all the discussed tasks like ' sing a song, tell me a joke and other related fun stuff.
Overall, WP8.1 is a massive update of more than 330 MB.
Worth it :)
IF they could bring Brave Frontier on Windows Mobile then i'm in
