.191 functions!!!!!!!!! The difference between 4.7 and 5.0 is not night and day...
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 18.104.22.168. 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.
