    Official: OS 7.1.0.163 for BlackBerry Torch 9850 From Sprint


    The wait for OS 7.1 is finally over. Earlier in the day we posted that Sprint users were starting to receive OTA's of the new OS 7.1, but there was no official desktop installer. Sprint has now posted the desktop installer for the Torch 9850 OS 7.1.0.163. So if you have a Torch 9850 get out that USB device and give your device a fresh new OS. As always be sure to let us know your findings/fixings.

    Note:
    The Software Platform and Applications version numbers can be found under Options-About screen on the handheld.

    Ok, what I've noticed so far with this OS 7.1 release...

    - Apps seem to load a bit faster and overall feel seems a bit zippier. Not by a lot.
    - Boot time is still the same, pretty slow.
    - Keyboard is a bit different. When typing email addresses it now has a @ symbol where the space bar is, and there is a .com button now. Very convenient.
    - Now have mobile hotspot but have not tried it yet. I'll report more on this when I've tested it more.
    - Pictures load very fast now.
    - New 'Emergency Alert' Email Icon.
    - Browser seems faster and videos load faster as well.

    Overall the 7.1 OS a step in the right direction. I'll post more when I've had a couple days to be with it.

    7.1.0.163 has some really nice features but my battery life has been VERY poor. I performed the update using Desktop Manager allowing it to move my apps, etc., automatically without a wipe.

    I'm going to try a wipe and load this morning and install my apps independently and see if that fixes this. I can't have the phone not make it through half a day on a charge.

    OK, wipe and re-load from scratch seems to have fixed the battery problems I was experiencing.

    Yea, I've been good on battery. I can get by the entire day on one charge with a couple hours of talk time.
