It sounds like more and more people are starting to get the 8.1 and Cyan.  So far it looks like the Lumia 625 and 925 are the first devices to get it.

Here's a parsed list so far.

 

 

Have you got it yet, also anyone without a Lumia, with a HTC or Samsung WP8 device, post if you've gotten official 8.1 or firmware updates for you phone.

WP 8.1 Update is currently running right now for me for a Lumia 925 in France with Orange after a small preparatory update

Still no love for Canada. I'm getting an unlocked phone, so that wouldn't be a problem, right?

Not an issue for unlocked/unbranded phones, just have to wait for the OEM/maker to push out their firmware etc.

That's a bit of a sweeping statement...

 

The 9xx isn't "getting it"... certainly not yet in the UK.

Upgraded my 925 yesterday night to CYAN. Unplugged from recharge this morning. Battery is draining at ludicrous speed.

After less than 3 hours it went from 100% to 22% O_o

I can't believe it, there must be something wrong. Battery app shows that Cortana is draining a lot, but can't be so much.

It's improbable that I will pass the morning with a single charge. Yesterday, with WP8, the phone ended the day with battery at 32% !!!!

I found this when I first upgraded to 8.1 in the preview. The best solution is to literally reset your phone and restore from a backup. 8.1 changes how the apps run in the background so any apps which were blocked from running in the background are now free to do so which really kills the battery. 

 

If you don't want to reset, just go through your apps and block/allow whichever.

 

Can anyone say if this update is newer than the latest update in the developer preview? Or is mine already pushed to the RTM 8.1 through it?

It could just be draining fast because it's the start and you have Cortana doing most of the work it has to do right now, like indexing and collecting info that it needs.  After this initial indexing is over with it should go back to normal, there could also be other apps running now that didn't run before.  Go into Battery Sense and look at the list, then just block/Allow what you want.   People should remember that apps coded specifically for 8.1 do not "exit" and close anymore if you hit "back" all the way and back out of them like they did before, they're probably still running.

 

Though if you leave them idle enough, which I tend to do with apps like Twitter Beta and Facebook Beta etc at some point 8.1 will just close them and they're not going to be in the task switcher list anymore.
