My 2 cents about os 220.127.116.115
I installed 18.104.22.1685 Thanksgiving night without any issues other then having to re read forum help posts. :hail: :cool2:
#Boot time improved, all round response time in and out of apps are very good, #speaker phone seems louder as well as hard wired headphones. #Sound quality and volume are good, both with or without bluetooth headset when making or receiving phone calls, #Camera, video camera, music player, as well as voice notes recorder are working great without the lag time I had before this os install.
#Not able to get bluetooth to work with music player no matter what I try, #Music player works fine with hard wired headphones (but from time to time I get a loud pop noise through head set), #I have to do a song and dance each and everytime I want to play (Slacker, Flycast, or Tunein) via bluetooth headphone, #The volume and sound quality suck hard via bluetooth.
I can turn up as well as down the volume of both radio and music player without having to be in its' app. I was not able to that before this upgrade. I would have to go back to the app in order to adjust the volume. :1244:
Over all I am please with this os, but I hope I can over come my bluetooth issues before next mowing season arrives.
