    Not Impressed with .328 ( I have a Theory )

    Ok... So I've installed 5.0.0.328 ( Like most Storm owners, I'm sure ). Can I just say that I'm not impressed. It seems SLOOOOOOW. My signal isn't fantastic, and the whole theme ( landscape ) issue really bugs me. I've read that the problem isn't with the OS but with Plazmic. If that's the case, then why did themes work perfectly fine in landscape when I was using 5.0.0.230? If they're all 5.0 Os's, why wouldn't they just program them the same for that particular part of the newer OS? And why would my signal decrease with this new build. And WOW is it slow!
    I Can't believe that THIS is the version that Verizon chose to make official. I feel like I'm back to my Storm that was running 4.7.0.75. I think the big red V is trying to make me hate my Storm again so I'll be less prone to keep it and more open to the idea of the S2. Hoping that it's faster and I'll get a better signal and my themes might work. That's my theory anyway.
    Well I'm gonna show them. I'm switching back to .230 and spend some quality time with my touch screen Berry. I will not replace her because she's not as sleek as the younger more nubile model. With a little nip / tuck of her OS ( And maybe a new chrome cover :laugh2: ) I will continue to love her as I did before the weekend began. We will curse Verizon and October 28th together!!! :irked::irked:

    Actually I think they rushed the build out so that they wouldnt have an influx of storm 1 owners wanting free upgrades

    I think people might be rushing judgment on the OS a little to quick. Give it time to settle in to your phone. Personally I think it is better than .230, at least perfomance wise. The theme issue is a pain but it takes 5 sec. to fix it.

    i think this is the best build yet.230 was one of the worst....go figure. i'm sure V didn't come up with a complex scheme to put out a bad os so people would buy a new one.

    I agree with you. Now that 5.0 is out for S1. Some S1 owners are "less likely" to complain when they see S2. Just my .02 worth

    I agree w/you 100% except on the release of S2..Curious how that will perform.. Personnaly, I went with the 5.0.0.238/323H (.230base), Its a great build for my device(All devices act differently). Once Lyric or BBC comes out w/a .328 Hybrid and pending reviews, I may go back to that. .328 is Very Slow:261for my device and a few unexpected glitches w/icons). I actually removed it the same nite I d/l it. I don't believe in that letting the OS settle BS. .230 seemed to settle in like it belonged since the 1st time I starting using it. :banana:Good luck to everyone. NO OS is really bad (for the most part), Its just finding the one that fits for your own device:beerchug:. again...Just my IMHO..

    I've been using the .238 build since it came out. It seemed good from the get go, however I'm now finding myself doing battery pulls all the time. :Eyecrazy: The hour clock comes on and stay on for minutes on end. I keep loosing the chat history in my BBM groups. I'm not thrilled with this build. :aargh4:
