    I downloaded OS 5.0.0.732 to my Bold yesterday and it is definitely not as solid as .699, for me at least. With .699 I had such solid battery and memory and with this leak it was definitely draining the battery and memory at a faster rate. I am switching back as I am typing this. I know they are leaks and you test at your own risk, but I am just giving my two cents. For a Sprint Bold user, I say stay with the .699.

    I was just wondering the same thing - how stable is the new leak.

    .699 hands down gives me good battery life and very minimal lag

    I popped around from leak to hybrid to official constantly on the Tour. I'm going to try to avoid the hassle (temptation) with this phone. 699 is great not going to change for now. Thanks for the headsup!

    So far I'm not seeing any additional battery drain on .732.

    I would think just having the wi-fi on would eat at battery.

    For those with bad battery life, is it due to reception issue, or is there also full service?

    How bad are the memory leaks you are seeing?

    It's not a mind blowing memory leak or battery drain, but it was enough to make me switch back. Official .669 has been amazing for me, and since I switched back it has gone back to amazing! Ha. I hope some people do have luck with the leak.

    Hmm. Interesting. I may have to see if the kids over at BBhybrids have created any beasts for this device yet!

    Do you have any issues with .669? I think it is one of the most solid OS builds that I have ever experienced. But what does have me excited is that the higher the leak numbers keep getting, the closer we are getting to 6.0. So keep on releasing them!

    Personally, I don't have mine yet. Missed Verizon's cut off for ordering time to have it today. Monday it will be in my hands!

    Heard good things about .699 but those guys always know how to tinker to make it even better!

    I don't usually resort to the hybrids unless the releases for my device all have some sort of drawback/problem.

    In the case of the 9650 both .699 and .732 have been solid, so I can't really see a need at this point.

    But with hybrids they can add other files, that may run better, from other versions, and make a montage of everything that runs even better then the official. I have had a good experience with most hybrids. I will wait and see how I like .699 first though.
