I have read several threads relating to measured benchmark performance improvements with this last OTA update. I, too, felt that even without any measurements, it tends to feel more "solid" in its functions and performance. Although I never really experienced some of the multi-tasking problems that some users have experienced (or the so-called "deep-sleep" that seems to stop background apps), switching between apps seems much smoother and more responsive! One particular issue I had.... prior to the OTA update, my "squareup credit card reader" never worked correctly (a verifyable problem according to the compatability list on the squareup website). Since the OTA update, it has worked perfectly! None of this is a result of simply resetting or reloading the phone from scratch because I originally made that effort several times with no improvements. Could be that they may have actually cleaned up a few system bugs in the process? Seriously, I was not 100% satisfied on my original decision to get this phone (based on some of the early complaints). But I have to admit, it seems to be meeting my expectations much better now-a-days! Anyone else care to share any experiences or noticable improvements?? If so, do you feel any better or worse than when you first got it.... .....play on!
