    While it has only been up and running for about 12 hours, at this point, I would say that I can not see any significant enhancements between .109 and .148. Granted, my application memory is much higher but what good does that really do. My Storm seems to be slower on .148 that .109. The accelerometer is slower and the screen lag is worse. The Radio and Signal strentgh do seem to be improved.

    My only problem with .109 was the freeze reboot when taking pictures from time to time. If .148 fixed that, then I have no complaints.

    But, if you are wanting to upgrade with the hopes of a lightning fast device, it will disappoint you.

    I have been using most every leaked OS since .90. I dl'd .148 about 5 hours after it was posted. So far, so good, no problems encountered, my 3rd party apps run well, and battery life is better than .141.

    IMO, yes, it's worth it.

    24 hours into the game, I would say that battery life is about the same as .109. Browser speed is not faster than .109. Radio signal seems to be just a touch stronger and memory starts out higher, thus staying higher. However, I am not seeing that the higher memory level is improving functionality. I would say .109 and .148 are pretty much a push as far as speed and functionality is concerned.

    I did not have much of an issue with .109 but I can say I have not had a random reboot all day and things seem to be working smoothly with the camera again.

    I would say do it. I have only had it for a day but it's been great so far. I do think there needs to be given some time for the OS to settle in but so far so good. Very happy with it so far.

    based on my 1 days experience of .148 before my phone completely died it was a bit quicker.. camera was much faster but still had the intermittent reset issues i had with .109
