Recently installed windows 8.1 on my Lumia 520. Its working great. No issues as of now. Volume control, action center, data sense, background image, xbox, task manager... everything is great. Really good update and very useful. Just waiting for the desktop application for connecting to PC, as of now "project my screen" option is not useable.
Few things which still needs to be improved
1) cellular data control needs to be added in action center.
2) Games are not consolidated in Game Center as before in Windows 8.
3) Some application like 'Here maps', 'Here Drive', 'Game Center', 'Music center' need to have transparent tiles for better view of background image.

Why there is no customization of lock screen? It says that you can be able to resize, reposition the time, date, and notifications but there's no feature like that. I own a Lumia 820. Thanks for your help!

Indian consumers have taught a lesson to Nokia earlier by switching to other brands. Its a second chance for Nokia in Indian market. If Nokia lets down Indian consumers once again (No Cortana for India while avlbl for US) den once again India will dump Nokia. Hope Nokia has already learnt a lesson and will not repeat the same.
