J2Evil, 25 Jul 2014Is a hard reset really necessary for the update?Hard reset is essential. Or else feel the pain of a heavy battery drain ih.
Actually Jassy, I'm also waiting for the 8.1 here in UAE, just have patience soon your phone will notify you.
Hard-reset : Settings > about > Reset your phone... That's what you should do.
Hope this helps..
Btw guys. My battery drain issue has been solved. When we are updating it to WP 8.1, a hard-reset is a must. Before that you have to backup the app+data settings. I backed up all my photos n videos in my laptop. They erased the phone memory as well as sd card. Then as pointed out by the other mate, I changed the email account download to hourly.
And this helped me to return to the good old days of battery backup like wp 8.
Battery drain has finally been solved. However, I had to reinstall all apps... Not an issue..
Thanks for your help guys.

I am an apple freak but seeing the battery drain so easily i had to buy another phone and within few months I have switched over from Samsung Note 3 to Samsung S5 and now on Sony Xperia Z2, there's still something missing i guess. I ordered the NOKIA 1520 lets see how it goes. Anything i should keep in Mind? Please throw in your suggestions. Would love to know more about Windows.

I upgraded my mobile to 8.1 , no such issues to complain.

Hi. Updated to 8.1 about 2 days back. Some of my complaints from WP8 are solved.
Battery life is not affected.still getting 28-30hrs.
Phone is become smoother to operate. Music app can now create playlist without connecting to PC.
Action centre is a boon.
Volume can now be separately set for media and phone. In general, more setting options.
More apps available now.
Definitely its a big difference.
And all for good reasons.
