  1. Haven’t received it yet on M8 in Gurgaon, India. Any clues by when it is expected? Is this a city wise release or carrier wise ?


  2. Update is a sh!t nothing new…it messed up the features which we good in sense 6. like the app Tray and notifications bar…which by the way look like sh!t…but updating is a breeze…no issues like overheating, battery drain…


  3. Well nothing new in this update,, not even three main screen buttons! Just added the features which M8 had speciality of! Sad 😦 .


  4. The notifications, similar to iOS.. Some minor tweaks to the interface.. like status download in Google Play, will inform more soon…


  5. I updated my phone I like the new layout and everything, but now my music library that I worked so hard to organize with the right artist, song, and album name is completely messed up! Beyond upset!!
