To verify everything went correctly, had to Settings > About > More Info to see the precise OS version which will be 8.10.12393.890.
There isn’t much information on this update other than it improves Quiet Hours by being global, and doesn’t require Cortana. Also, there is a difference in the boot screen that replaces the stand-alone Windows logo and includes “Windows Phone” text — which is natively shown on a Nokia Lumia 630.
On my Nokia Lumia 520, Action Center seems to be snappier and more responsive, of course that is subjective and the 520 is the lowest model phone. Users of higher end Nokia’s might notice other stability or performance enhancements.
If you are the proud owner of a high end Nokia Lumia, definitely leave us a comment and see what improvements you are seeing.
Not a whole lot to see here, but if you’re a Windows Phone enthusiast, you’ll definitely want to pick it up.
