Firmware update pushed out for Nokia Lumia 1520

Firmware update pushed out for Nokia Lumia 1520
Having issues with your Nokia Lumia 1520 phablet? Then you should welcome with open arms the firmware update being pushed out on Sunday for the 6 inch Windows Phone powered model. The Nokia Update for Windows Phone includes Microsoft OS 8.0.10521.155, and you can try to coax it out of your handset by going to Settings > Phone Update and click on Check for Updates.

The update takes about 5 to 10 minutes to install once it is downloaded, and you won't be able to make or take calls during this time. We'd suggest using a Wi-Fi connection while downloading the update so that you don't use your precious data allowance. And of course, you should have your battery charged to at least 50% before starting the process.

If you've updated your Nokia Lumia 1520, let us know if you can see any changes to your phablet. You can leave your comments in the box below.

Not sure what you are posting. The number of the update doesn't specify what is being updated. Clicking on the links don't tell anything. So, where to find a statement of what is being updated?

No, PA only bans real fans who give helpful input.. They love trolls like this because they actually hate WP themselves... You think they are gonna back us up?... Not likely.

One more comment from me, that PA doesn't like, and I'll be banned for a week... But, I do challenge these haters pretty hard.. The bad thing about it is that PA is ran by a lot of haters, so it's hard for a brotha like me too come up... It's like being in the south man!!!... Lol

Sorry, no changelist yet. It would seem to be some annoying little bugs getting fixed. Regards, Alan F.

Do you have further evidence of the update, Alan?.. The last time you guys reported on a update for the 1520 it was hoax.. I've checked my device and don't see anything yet, but I'll check it again in a little while...

Yes!! It's been confirmed by Daniel Rubino of WPCentral that this is a lie.. Once again PA has done irresponsible reporting... ............................... Nokia has never done updates on Sundays. THIS IS NOT TRUE PEOPLE.. NO UPDATE FOR THE 1520 TODAY!!!

The update actualy rolled out last Thursday for me. I was checking for an update almost everyday and Thursday night I got lucky. I don't know about the changes as well, I believe most of them where bug fixes. What I did notice after the update: 1- There's an option to make the Windows keys NOT vibrate. I wanted this for a long time and it works fine. 2- The problem with the phone interpreting a touch when you actualy want to scroll up, down or sideways seems to be less noticeable but it still happens. 3- I had problems with the screen brightness taking too long to adjust when the luminosity in the environment changed drasticaly. Not anymore, the phone adjusts very fast to the new conditions. There's probably more but I did not notice many more things considering the way I use my phone. Mine is an international version of the 1520, unlocked.

Ah, I forgot to mention. I also noticed much better connectivity with Bluetooth devices and Wi-Fi networks. Many times, my phone decided not to pair with my Bluetooth enabled car system (Pioneer). I had to force the connection about 40% of the times. This is not happening any longer after the update. I also had a problem where Wi-Fi would "disconnect" from my home Access Point, even when keep connected was checked under Wi-Fi, Advanced settings. This behavior has not repeated itself as well after the update.

Hopefully it fixes the issues I'm having with my 1520.

I've had issues with the screen dimming bug adjusts the screen brightness down about 20% even when auto adjust is off... It's not a settings issue, and this isn't normal behavior for a WP device.. .........................http://forums.wpcentral.com/nokia-lumia-1520/251303-screen-dimming.html

Well I've been having wi-fi, and automatic reboot issues...

You should maybe try to get it replace, its either an app or the phone itself, cause mines do not have those issues

You sure its not an app that's doing all of those because I do not have no reboots or any of those issues, but then again I do not download much, even on android I do not download much

I did not have the reboot issues you mention. Wi-Fi and Bluetooth yes.

I never use Bluetooth so I am not sure if I will have problems with it, the only issue I get is the touch sensitivity when I enter my pin

I've not had any issues with my 1520 so I'm curious what it could be.. Hmm

The last time PA reported on a update it was false... When WPC reports on it then you can hold your breath..

I've got the Update too yesterday. Not sure what the changes are. There are no spesifics given. Probably some minor fixes.
