    All installed, took about 15 mins, no probs at all. This was on Orange, unbranded from CPW. Not really seen any major differences, apart from the taskbar, will just have to see how things go with it

    I found that every app I had has stayed, with its icon still in place.

    Just upgraded. Unbranded Orange in UK. Lost most of my apps and had a major panic when the backup software wouldn't restore.

    All seems ok now.

    Only real difference I've noticed so far is the larger predictive text words and slightly louder notifications.

    UPDATE - Quite disappointed that they haven't fixed the "broken shortcut icons in a folder" issue and the larger words can be a bit distracting. But, oh well.

    Thanks Mate for your fast reply :)

    So what about the Sound Volume Fixed ? Speaker louder ?

    So I did a factory reset. Still no internet from my wifi. I've turned off all my security on my router now and nothing. I'm pretty pissed off to say the least.

    Well ringing my phone to test, does not seem to have a louder tone on it since the update.
    I do remember something about HTC saying they would look in to it.
    The sound improvement was one of the main reasons for me updating.

    my camera app was playing up after update, after reset seems to be working fine. Wifi signal issues still ongoing.
    after reset, phone performance became even better

    Without a doubt the volume on my phone is louder through the speaker, noticed it straight away.

    screen is definitely brighter now. Am on lowest setting and is well bright for indoors. If you turn it right up it looks like it should be much better when out in the sun. Agreed with the sound...hellova difference. Like the new quick settings tab in the notification area too. My mate reckons his signal has improved drastically now getting much better 3G. He is in Leeds though I am out in the sticks in Lincolnshire mud hut country and still only got GPRS....never mind!!! Remains to be seen about the claimed battery performance improvement, any takers?

    Just noticed the app manager is much better now. A lot faster and smoother.

    In fact, most things seem smoother and faster.
  15. Well I am loving the new features, feels like a new phone. Weather app now has sounds, settings-applications now has a different layout that looks way better, the phone seems to manage memory far better now have over 300mb of ram free all the time no matter what I am doing, phone is way faster and responsive, freind stream now when you select a tweet with a link in it it opens the link below the tweet, people widget has a different look. menu now has all apps frequent and downloads, apps scroll in sections, status bar now has quick settings option as well, and this is just what I have found so far.

    I thought the sound was louder after the update but noticed the volume setting had been changed to full

    I seem to remember seeing screenshots of a new lock screen and was looking forward to that (have a habit of answering phone calls and unlocking the phone when taking out of my pocket)... Guess I must have imagined that.

    The massive improvement on the speaker volume is more than enough for me to be happy with this update. If battery life is even marginally improved, I am a happy bunny!!!

    In the App Drawer when you press the widget of the 4 squares with one outlined in green it flashes that same widget onto the main screen with the app drawer still visible in shadow behind it. Any idea if you are supposed to be able to do anything with this widget? (I know if you long press it you can change the order of the 3 widgets)

    Tried this, reinstalled Picasa Web Albums from HTC Hub, it asks me to set up my account, but then when you open the app it says that it's not linked to my Google account (even though it shows up in account sync). Anyone know if there's a fix for this? Thanks.

    Not sure about that but it may have been a vanilla version of Gingerbread before HTC got their hands on it.
