My User Experience:
Got my first update notification, plugged the phone to the charger and I opted to download it. Came back after 20-30 minutes and saw that the update had downloaded but not installed. Then opted to install the update.

Expected Behaviour:
I thought downloading an update implied that it would be installed automatically too.

(Which is a bit stupid when I come to think of it - the 'download' option clearly states the purpose and does only that, which is how it should be).

Provide another option in the pulley menu - Download and Install - which should download and install the OS update without requiring any more confirmation or user intervention.

"Install" should Download and Install. That's expected behaviour. It's the extra "Download only" option that needs to be added.

@cyber_fusion Sometimes if you really want to use the phone, you may prefer to download the update but install it later. (Or when your office wifi net has a faster connection than your home :). So both the separate "Download" and "Install" option need to be there too.

Glad you agree with what I said. To reiterate, First pull menu option should be "Install" (Downloads and Installs) second option should be "Download only" (Available only if not downloaded).

@cyber_fusion Not exactly. I am saying that 3 options should be there - Download, Install and 'Download and Install'. Like I mentioned in my post, options should communicate what they do clearly and do only that. 'Install' alone is a bit vague because it will have to download the update first. Consider the scenario where a user has enabled 3G / 4G but uses it only for checking mail (as data plans are expensive). If he / she sees the 'Install' option, he / she may wrongly assume that the update is already available on his phone and select it. And will face a huge bill by unintentionally downloading a big update over 3G / 4G.
