Lumia Denim on the 930, at last

This has been the longest wait for an update. Four months and a few days. And the wait isn't over for all of you, especially on the 1520.

While Microsoft listed Denim as available for my phone, it would not install. The phone was feeling just fine and up-to-date. Then both Thomas Cloer and Christian Just had the same hint: make sure Developer Preview is switched off. That did the trick. Denim downloaded, upgraded the phone and then updated lots and lots of applications. And it had the all important Lumia Camera 5. The one that starts in an instant and does all the fancy image processing in the background. I can't wait to try it out tomorrow.

Denim is a very important update for 1520, 930 and 830, because those phones support Lumia Camera 5. It's not as big on the other ones, especially the 1020. That's going to be left behind, because Microsoft deems it too much effort to upgrade a completely different architecture with a monster sensor. It's still going to shoot wonderful photos, but not as quick as the other ones.

So would you recommend keeping an 1020 on WP DP? Or downgrade?

No need to downgrade. When Denim becomes available just switch off Preview for Developer and it will upgrade.
