    This radio gives me full signal strength .. everywhere. It's incredible. Places that give me low reception on 141 and 109 have 4-5 bars. Battery life seems quite a bit better as well. I haven't run in to a single issue with .148. My memory is holding steady at 30mb after 36 hours, which seems a bit low compared to others, but as long as it doesn't go any lower, who cares? The only complaint I can manage to spew out is that the accelerometer isn't the fastest I've used, but it's not bad either -- definitely not slow enough to warrant an actual complaint from me. I'm really impressed so far.

    Install - no issue, all apps and settings transferred perfectly
    Camera - looks good, no freeze, quick save/no lag
    Video Camera - no freeze, good save, good start/stop, good record/smooth playback in full screen, good delete - no issues
    MMS - Fully functional
    Copy/paste tool - present/functional
    Phone - so far, so good. 1XEV holding -82dBm(typical for my loation) no dial pad issues.
    Browser - very fast...(connects to Home URL in 5 seconds or less)
    Email - no issue
    keyboards - very responsive
    Screen Rotations - very good/fast sensitive
    Meterberry, Google Maps, BB Maps, Tip Calculator, Docs2Go, Storm Level, Voice Dialing, Calendar - no issue
    Quick Launch - N/A sorry, I don't use it
    Theme Compatibility - no issue with Gemblock Today Plus iBerry
    Lock - works as it should
    Bluetooth - Tested Bluetooth on both my headset and the car handsfree---working perfectly/no volume issues on calls.
    Media files - No issues on Music, Video, Ringtones, Pictures - load fast...excellent swipe speed to next picture in full screen/landscape.
    Voice Notes - Don't Use, shrunk it out on installatio
    n

    24 HOUR REPORT - No changes from above.
    Memory management (holding ~38MB) - excellent
    Battery (73% remaining after 24 hours-light use) - excellent
    Event Log - no errors reported
    Signal Strength -80dBm/1XEV and steady during entire period
    No Resets (intentional or spontaneous) since initial battery pulls


    36 HOUR REPORT - No changes from above.
    Memory management 41 MB (ranging 37-41 throughout test period/recovers nicely with use of apps)
    Battery (50% remaining after 36 hours -light use) - excellent
    Event Log - No reported errors
    Signal Strength -80dBm/1XEV and holding.
    No Resets (intentional or spontaneous) since initial battery pulls


    58 HOUR REPORT - No changes from above.
    Memory management - 39 MB (continues to range 37MB-41MB throughout test period/recovers nicely with use of apps)
    Battery - (13% remaining - light use). End Battery Test - recharging
    Event Log - No reported errors
    Signal Strength -80dBm/1XEV and holding.
    No Resets (intentional or spontaneous) since initial battery pulls
    OTA Downloading - no issues downloading from various sites.

    RE:POST #483/RELLIMS; Emailed this link: http://www.indyitservices.com/bb_the...an_DK_Blue.jad for theme to my storm and downloaded OTA without issue.
    NOTE:
    Immediate impact of downloading additional theme was to lower free device memory ~2MB without negative consequences. I will leave this on device because I do not want to intentionally reset (reqired to complete deletion) during this test. Will continue to monitor memory management...Device now contains stock Zen theme (inactive), Gemblock iberry Today Plus (active since test initiation) and Rellims Theme (inactive).
    65 Hour Interim Finding
    Since loading 3rd theme, memory now holding ~33MB. No change in apps or other parameters. Memory ranging from 28MB -35MB but still demonstrating ability to recover when apps are "exercised". Good indicator that additional themes should not be on device if not absolutely required but device still running as stated in above reports.

    72 HOUR FINAL REPORT - TERMINATING TEST
    Addition of third theme coincided with significant memory reduction...now at 20MB. HOWEVER, system still behaves as it has throughout the test period. Don't know if it's the particular theme per se or just that there are now three themes on the device.

    CONCLUSION:
    1. .148 appears reasonably robust, stable, fast
    2. .148 appears slightly better than .132 in it's memory management, battery use and video camera functions
    3. Will delete third theme, reset device and report if memory failure is due to third theme or not.
    4. Until the third theme was added, .148 performed very well and worthy of your trials. I find it to be among the best of the least 16 OS which have resided on this device. Your results, unfortunately, may vary. Good Luck!

    My typical test is 5 days unless I run into significant issues sooner. I'll continue to edit this report as I gather additional data.
    Wow Toy, another good review! Loving all that blue!

    So far - at least equal, if not slightly better, than .132(Straight) in all parameters.

    Not bad for a chemist :banana: Wow, excellent feedback now that's what I call a review.

    Out of curiosity have you kept notes on all of the OS's and hybrids you have tried out. If so, I'm curious to know what you think the best OS/hybrid is. I know some of the parameters are not quantitative but interested in your subjective thoughts.
