    I think it is worth it. The interface is the best yet. Everything seems to run a bit faster. The flick scrolling is money!! Threaded SMS is great! The battery/power management is like no other build, I'm starting to wonder if the battery meter is even working...it lasts forever. Facebook does not work but there's a mobile site for that. All of my usual apps still work, Ubertwitter, google maps, storm slider, quicklaunch, berryweather, and AIM is actually working now (did not in .150). The only things I've lost is the camera, which I never use (could be used as a fast reboot utility currently), and I'm sure it will return soon. Gmail app doesn't work but the new build has the gmail expanded tools mixed in. Nothing lost there.

    I would say anyone that can do without the camera for a short while should install this OS to get excited about what your Blackberry is about to become...it's like a dangled carrot preview...LMAO!!

    Stop Tilt works for me!
    I really like it and i'm not going back. I'll wait for the camera fix to come. If you have a doubt about installing, just try it and you won't be sorry!!

    Accelerometer flips completely
    Stop Tilt doesn't work

    Hell yea I'm staying with .191, the best 5.0os to date. Yea the camera isn't working, but I don't use it everyday, so I can go for a while w/o a cam.

    The concept is Great, but for me the bugs outweighed the gain. No camera didn't bitter me, but the
    freezes, BeWeather issues, no meterberry, no appworld,etc...was too much for me...so back to 6v10. A better version is probably not far away...or a Storm2

    I didn't even install it. I use my camera alot and all the apps mentioned above
    plus facebook and Berrypopup. If I can't use those then I don't even want to try it. All those work great with 8.5 so I'll wait for them to get everything
    straight. Really enjoy reading everyones comments about it, though.

    While it sucks that the camera doesn't work, that is not enough for me to downgrade. I voted to stay with it.

    Smooth and fast
    Says 3G instead of 1XEV
    Flick Scrolling
    Threaded SMS
    Slacker Radio works PERFECTLY
    Good battery life
    Fast internet

    MeterBerry doesn't work, though they just released a new version I have yet to test on .191 -- May solve that problem.
    No tabbed browsing
    No camera
    No BBM 5.0

    Overall, the issues and bugs are not enough to keep me away. I rarely installed Facebook app on previous builds as it was a giant memory leak culprit. Having MeterBerry work would be nice, as well as having BBM 5.0, but still, not enough to keep me from this much nicer interface.
