Well for me the camera certainly seems alot better behaved. In the past it would seem in focus when taking the pic, but the when it showed you the end result it was all blurred.
Here it keeps the sharpness.
However it is not a great fan of you yanking out the data-cable. it is either a hit or a miss whether or not it will freeze the phone.
Flick scrolling is sexy smooth and there is no 'bleeding' of the icons.
Now although I deleted the internal tools before flashing the phone, there seems to be allot of activity every time I boot the phone. Is this normal? I am taking about 20 seconds of data-transfer.
I though initially the signal was more stable, but wo' it has just gone to SOS.

This is the best to date!
Too early to report yet but flick scrolling and conversations are all worth the wait!
****Note: The BB logo is there! Internet is fast! E-mails, SMS & Calls all working perfectly!**** (lets hope it stays that way!)

I'm finding a couple of issues so far, nothing major....
Camera finds it hard to focus in low light, took 10 pictures and not 1 has come out properly, all pretty blurry.(will test in daylight tomorrow)
Phone now and again freezes, only lasts about 5 seconds then it comes back to life again.
Blackberry messenger keeps coming up with update 1.0.94 - When you click to download it is for OS 4.1.0.???
(Not even compatible with the current or previous Storm OS???)
Facebook .22 works well.
Blackberry messenger 4.7 works.
App World works.
Transitions very smooth.
Flick scrolling is awsome!

After playing with 18.104.22.168 for a couple of hours... :
Looks lovely. Very quick. Flick Scrolling etc.
Love the ability to make the theme a Today one via options!
Editing/correcting text with the bubble is now doable! Yay!
It all looks and feels like a Storm should have done from the start.
However... unless the BIS network is behaving oddly tonight this Leak is doing odd things. The BB logo next to "3G" appears and disappears. Its mostly not there. This is not just a cosmetic flaw, as it affects the phones functionality.
... I am sat 4 feet away from my femtocell, so signal strength is maximum 3G.. you cant get any better, (There is no natural 2G or 3G in my house, hence the femtocell). However I am being connected to and disconnected from the BIS network constantly. This affects all kinds of things in a bad way... you simply cannot do the things you want to do, WLM? Nope Web? Nope.
Hopefully its the BIS networh thats acting up, if not then I suspect that this Leak is seriously flawed.
App World. Download, install, use. Reboot and it's gone. Same happens with BBM5.
Camera works fine for me.
Still testing but if the BIS issue continues its back to 22.214.171.124 for me.
Call it Paranoia but even after the usual uninstall of Quincy before updating I smell a fish.....
<EDIT> If anyone has a working link for BBM5 for OS 5.0 could you share it please

I would like to give a big thanx to the person that leaked this OS. This is absolutely fantastic. Not sure how it compares to .230 that u 9530 guys have, but everything so far is superb. I haven't noticed any flaws with this build as yet. Signal strength maybe ever so slightly down, but it is never full in my house anyways. BBM & Windows Live Messenger working fine. Pictures loading instantly, menus open and close really quickly. Lock & unlock is fast. Memory on first boot was 41.9, which is more than I have had on previous build with the same stuff installed. As I said earlier, not seeing the probs other users having. I did a Wipe using BBSAK then installed. Proper buzzin with this build. :-)

You're Fickle :P
Like I said it loooks and behaves awesome. Even the insanely massive End User Agreements for WLM etc are a breeze to flick-scroll through now!
I'm testing my 3rd party apps atm. Some don't work which is fine and to be expected, but this BIS thing is worrying me somewhat as BIS was 100% fine before I installed .216
... I'll continue my tests
