Main technical requiremnt of a mobile is to have network signal.My nokia lumia 720 does not catch network signal in most places.I waited for windows phone 8.1 update for so long thinking the update would solve the problem,on the contrary the signal strength went to no signal in the places where i used to get 2 bars atleast....i wasted my money for this phone...I felt should put in my experience

There is some issue with Windows 8.1
1. Sometime showing error as "It is going something error restart required"
2. File app should be default with this update and it would be better look if there will be some change in icon(File App).
3. It will be better if folder wise songs play in Music player
4. Lock Screen BETA should be fast and bug fix

Hmmm...
The cyan update is about 1.5 GB,
Mobile downloads Two files during update...
To update the device you must have fast and strong Wi Fi, otherwise your time and data will be gone in dustbin.. I'd tried it in Nokia Care :-p
I updated my l720 with a high speed wi fi i.e. 40Mbps (Bits). It took nearly one hour to download and another one hour to install the update...
And don't forget to reset your lumia after that for a smoother and faster experience and also to avoid battery issue, reset won't delete your update.... :-)

Ok Its time for us to discuss what are the changes in wp8.1 and what need to be updated and created .

Now in 8.1

Lock screen changed with updated time and date format

Home screen with New Added extra space for Tiles so we can add more tiles and it makes the phone look great than before.

Home screen wallpaper if awesome diffrent from other phones in market must say its a nice update

Seperate Volume panel for Ringer&notification and Media&apps

Notification panel by slide down worth it for wifi bluetooth flightmode and many other quick notifications

Music player updated but fit for nothing.

Store completely updated

camera both nokia camera and normal camera updated now picture perfect .

Battery saver is added but it all old battery saver in settings now as seperate app thats it .

Files app can be used which is great need and but needs lot of improvement like when u play a song and when we come back from player the song stops ...

Seperate tile for Fm radio ,, nice and decent

Photos folder is great with decently organised

Calender updated version

Maps updated

Podcasts , lol

Inbuilt skype but need to update

Video app for watching videos instead can get us a music and video player much organised like windows media player ..

Smooth movements better than before

Doesnt gets heated up even after 4 hours of usage either in 2g or 3g

battery doesnt drains fast as before its nice

and Lot more improvements in some part of corners within settings and other areas of device

.....

Overall rating after update to wp8.1 is 8/10

Need windows media player organised version that can handle both songs and videos without any flaws.

it is one of the worst phone i have ever used. the screen froze, once in every 3 days it starts working and works for only 6 hours.
I know the same thing happened to other 2 friends of mine having the same phone, all bought from different parts of the world. Mine was from UAE. complete waste of money. the updates didn't work as well. nokia center cannot do anything... sad

Today i checked again in NSU and NSR

Server refreshed and now wp8.1 update is available even through NSU and NSR for installation

Happy ......

Im currently downloading wp8.1 which is 1.52gb in size using NOKIA RECOVERY TOOL V1.4.3

I recommend to install with NSU or NSR
because its like installing a software as FRESH as the mobile is from Factory which is usually proper installation as NOKIA SERVICE center also use the same method and in case of WIFI installation there is chances of some file corruption and problems of some malfunction of device.

The reason this is happening is due to a conflict in the internal scheduler. There are two ways to resolve this issue. I would suggest the 2nd option if you would like a more timely resolution.



Option 1 - It will self-resolve in 6-7 days, as the scheduler rescans (reactivating the check for updates button)



Option 2 - You can force the rescan by installing a language pack. (go to settings > language + region > select other "phone language" which will force an install) This should immediately force a device rescan (reactivating the check for updates button)



You don't have to keep the language you selected, just the fact of installing one will force the rescan. Please let us know if this does not resolve your issue.
