    The difference is almost to heaven and almost to hail.

    This is in no way meant to change your opinion on installing leaks or not, but to fill you in on misinterpretations that people seem to have about this build.

    The last couple of leaks we have gotten have been horrible. They showed great potential, but they were horrible because they produced so many new and unfamiliar issues. (BBM5 not working at all in .154, .140 has tons or random reboots.)

    People seem to be afraid to try this OS because they dont want to "risk core functionality".

    Fact is, this build has more functionality than ANY 4.7 build. The threaded SMS is not just that. It's actually styled similar to a BBM chat, which makes this so much more user friendly. Sending texts is no longer a chore.

    THERE ARE NO RANDOM REBOOTS

    If that is one thing that scares you, then you dont have to worry about that with this build.

    The only two major things that you should be concerned about are

    Only BBM 4.7 works with 5.0.0.191. BBM5 does not have an up to date version leaked yet, but hopefully that will happen soon.

    The camera and video recorder do not work!

    These are the only things that are going to reboot your phone. If you avoid these and see them as something not that important to you, this build I highly recommend.

    Also sound can be REALLY LOUD in this OS. So if you are worried about that just turn down the volume on your phone, simple.

    Themes are working. Search forums to find out which ones work. There are atleast 2 threads made in the past 24 hours about themes that work.

    Say a command voice has become alot smoother and more professional.

    Typing is really fast and easier. Distracts you from the chore of current surepress at times.

    Transitions are on POINT. Scrolling through pictures is faster than the iPhones. Not to bring her into this, but Ive seen picture scrolling on iphone and it is just as slow as .148 sometimes.

    And last but not least, Flick Fkin Scrolling.......this feature really makes this phone a ton of a lot easier.

    All this in ONE leak. Thats pretty amazing for a leak. So yeah you can stick with you .148s and .151s, but I think .191 has claimed its throne.

    If your lost and cant find .191, dont make another thread, heres the link.

    Your cons are true, but the word is in build .2xx camera and video are fixed and if BBM 5.0.0.19 leaks that will also work with .191.

    Card Storm I completely agree with everything you said except I still have an issue with loading pictures in the media player. I think the iphone still loads them faster. Maybe once they are loaded on the Storm, then scanning through might be faster. My problem is that it only recognizes the gesture to completely skip to the next picture. I like the transition and that it is fast but I wish they could have it that you are actually sliding the picture in real-time. I like how on the iphone the picture follows your finger as you drag it. It makes it seem like you are really pulling the picture. Everything else is a HUGE improvement and I am happy to say that I can finally stick with a 5.0 release. I really do love this OS and can't stress it enough.

    I can't wait till the camera/camcorder are fixed and a newer BBM that is compatible and doesn't have issues leaks. I did hear that .20x still has issues but hopefully the builds above that start to turn into what we've been waiting for.

    This may be something RIM has in store. The reason why I say this is because if you notice when playing music or movies, when you rewind all you do is place your finger on the screen to rewind backwards and remove your finger. No surepress is involved in this action. It is a drag action. Maybe this is coming?

    I am not having any problems with the camera or video camera, but there is a serious delay with typing and sending MMS. Whenever I start the browser, I get the hour glass for a few seconds before I can type anything.

    You are NOT on .191 if you are not having any camera or video problems. That or you are on crack and aren't even playing with a storm.

    Just kidding. I hardly ever use the camera on any of the phones I've owned although I did take 1 pic today. Hmmm....

    What I'm mad about is no Tab browser. I read S2 manual and it does not mention tab browser. Do we know if it will return?

    That's funny and true cause that 1 pic I took today was the car ahead of me while driving from OC to LA but I ended up taking a pic of my steering wheel due to the delay. Plus I'm a crappy photographer and never use the cam. Lol.

    Tab browsing will return!!!! I bet you anything when it returns it will be more updated. Im telling you, that first tabbed browsing was nothing compared to what they plan to do with it. Watch.

    No jealously here. Just being honest.

    Wish I didn't have a use for the camera/video, would like to keep it. I think my sluggish keyboard was just a fluke, seems ok now. Most of the ops seem fairly quick. Looking forward to release thats compatible.

    They are updating and upgrading the camera interface right now. This update will most likely increase the FPS, picture quality, as well as the UI. Also, we may see more features such as video and picture cropping. We will probably start seeing results in 5.0.0.2xx. It is all possible, and it might happen.

    I can tolerate not having the camera or video recording for a bit, but what might drive me back to 4.7.151 might be the serious media player and stereo BT problems I'm experiencing. If I can't even listen to music in the car I'm going to be an unhappy camper! Flick scrolling and such is neato, but at the end of the day I need my music. Not being able to use my BT stereo headphones or my BT connection to the car stereo is infuriating.
