View Poll Results: Is the new Verizon OS update .1015 an improvement?
- 92. You may not vote on this poll
Yes, it's an improvement overall from .713
No! Stay away and with .713 or lower, not worth it.
OS .1015 Poll
Ok, since there are so many differing opinions and mixed reviews about the new "official" OS update from Verizon, I figured a poll would be good. So, what do you think? Is it worth "upgrading" from .713 to .1015 or not?I think my BlackBerry addiction is unhealthy....

It seems a little faster. Once DM decided on it's own to recognize the update it went smoothly, no issues.
- Faster overall
- WIFI seems to connect faster
- BT quality seems better
Unknown at this time
- Battery life
I haven't encountered some of the other issues mentioned in a number of different posts.

Well, there are fixes for the bedside mode and media player bugs, so that basically leaves you with two major bugs. You have to decide if you can live with those...I can't.
So, if you don't like a popping speaker and you like to play OpenGL games, then you better stay away. Otherwise, it sounds like it may be OK with the two fixes mentioned above.
Still though, I don't see how it's any better overall than the pre .713 OS's.

2. Haven't heard the popping speaker issue and I've played music, videos, used the speakerphone mode, etc. Basically, I've used all the features that matter to me, without incident. Anything that MIGHT crop up along those lines would be doing something unusual (for me), so I'm not concerned.Dave - Moto Bionic

Had it running 24 hours and decided to ditch it. Went clear back to .607 and threw the 979 hybrid on it. My device has always ran it's best with a combination of 607.
Didn't have to add a file to get bedside mode working, no popping in speaker, no lines playing music, battery and memory better.
RIM has dropped the ball once again for us S2 folks. Very sad. Will be waiting to see if there really is a Storm 3 and if it will be 4G.

Works good for me. I noticed the bedside mode bug, but I actually like it better with this bug!Take a penny from every American and you will be a millionaire. Take 99 cents for an "App" and the possibilities are endless.

My only complaint and don't understand is how the bugs in EVERY OS get past the testers and approval of the managment to be released as official?
Apparently quality control needs some improvement.
