First impression is that its smooth again and the screen isn't too sensitive - I really liked .440 and this feel like it so far. Only other thing I know everyone will ask is YES the keys fade out nicely. Haven't made/received calls - will update tomorrow.
Great battery life in my opinion, this firmware is more compact but it's a bit lack of fluidity. Testing for checking if the audio problems of the latest firmware versions are solved. Probably the best one for 9860 battery life! At 100% battery, 7 e-mails received, 1 sms and two reboots, and now the battery is at 96%!
im still waiting for the discharge rates to settle down. ive chewed through 20% in the last hour or so after loading it. at one time on reboot, meterberry reported my discharge at 129%/hr lol. its hovering in the 7-8% now. i find that after a full charge and letting it settle, it should be better. i wasnt crazy about .474's battery life....so hopefully this will be better. nothing else stands out as a change yet.
just downloaded, ram seems to be super stable..its early but its a good sign. I see a performance issue when the ram drops below 65mb. Right now its been bouncing from 163mb -164mb....never seen it above 150mb since i loaded apps. Its early but positive.
I really don't notice anything between my stock build all the way through this one.
One thing that hasn't worked since my stock build is Flashlight: 2 for 1 free. In every build other than my stock build, if I activate the flashlight all my sound don't until i do a battery pull.
