Alright, at first i was a bit nervous after reading some of the other reviews. But im sharing my own experiences so far.....First impression out of the box, it is simply beautiful! My entire D1 fits in the screen area itself. Its light and comfortable to hold once u get over how woderfully huge it is I kept it virgin for a day with all the OTA updates, i did not have any of the issues some had, no reboots, got home from work with still 62% charge after average use and minimal 4G (a few calls, a little browsing, some texting, and general playing) was pretty happy. Then i rooted it last night (which was AMAZINGLY simple and fool proof) installed DAS BAMF 1.6 remix and a kernel, put setcpu on it, set some profiles, screen off, charging...etc..... speed is even more incredible! Messing with itall morning and still 88% battery, hope to get 12-14 hrs out of this charge with STOCK battery. But the absolute best thing is the RAM. right now in systempanel it shows 36 processes and i stillhave 263M available....can this be true?!? Hell yes its true!! and it gets even better, kill most of the processes and i have 427M available!! (screen shots to come) Yes the battery is not as good as my D1, but the sheer performance MORE than makes up for it (for me personally). For all of u still waiting to use ur upgrades for something better....WHY?!? The dev following for this phone is already OUTSTANDING, most of the phones i see ppl talking about that they r waitng for are still in "rumors" There is a BEAST of a phone that is out now! Sure wait for 4,6,8 months for something better (which will eventually happen) but guess what?!? 4,6, or 8 months after u get that phone a better one will come out aswell!!! So my recomendation, DROP what ur doing, get to verizon and GET THIS PHONE! Yes it has its bugs for some, but so does EVERY other phone out right now, or in the future. try it out for urself....u might be as happy and surprised as i am *im making this thread because i have read SO many negative threads on the TB, and i am EXTREMELY happy with mine so far and thought people should hear a positive report for once* (and partially because MBK needs to get one TODAY! i miss my metamorphy goodness ) first shot = 32 processes, second shot obviously 3 processes.....AMAZING!
