the big upgrades on the storm2 will be the new screen,sleeker look and feel,256mb of ram and wifi.
The screen I can agree with; as I can with the RAM (since more storage is always better) - wifi is nice but not a must-have for me.

Generally quite pleased with this OS with the exception of a lack of compatible themes. Not seeing any lags at all.

I have had no problems with this os. It is the fastest os that I have ever had. Memory is good. It will be even better when all developers get there stuff working with 5.0
I agree just needs to settle furthermore its 5.0 and its official it can only get better from here!
Every person is entitled to their opinion about the newest OS. Of all of the 5.0 OS, .328 is the best by far. It is more stable and mostly everything is functional. VZW had to put this out to deter S1 owners from looking for some sort of early upgrade discount. One thing I realized is that you can only run this new OS with the stock theme. Every theme I have run has effected my phone differently from battery drain, to slow operation to memory loss. Running stock theme stabilizes the phone.
Another possible issue people could be having is they might not be wiping their phone before they update it. You don't necessarily have to do it but from my experiences there seems to be less issues when you do.
+1. I fully agree bxrider
