    BBC v8 Vs. Leaked 5.0 Mega?

    Just curious the Plus and Minuses That aren't obvious of running the hybrid against running 5.0? Is it worth Down grading? if the apps you use work is it worth downgrading? The speed difference? Answer away....

    V8 doesn't have tabbed browsing. The only suggestion I would say is to try v8 for a week and if you don't like it, then go back to 5.0.

    There are many people that are having issues with 5.0 so for them v8 is the way to go as its really close to what 5.0 is but with many bugs eliminated. I am running 5.0 and so far its been the best experience for me so I am staying where I am at. If my 5.0 starts acting out, I have the v8 to go to. Its your personal preference on what you would like to do. You can always try it out and then go back to 5.0 or just stay where you are at unless issues arise.

    As far as those apps (myspace and FB), I don't use them so wouldn't be your best resource, but from what I hear is they don't play nice with 5.0. Let's hear from people that actually use them.

    I'm glad to hear 5.0 is working out for you. I tried 5.0 for a couple of days but it was a complete disaster on my device. There were too many bugs and it didn't play nice on the Telus network. But I do really enjoy BBC v8.

    Hi I agree totally with you. I am happy with 5.0 too.

    Agreed. V8 is the closest thing to 5.0 without the bugs. Try v8 out...you will love it!
