    Charge when switched off, knowing the faults people reported last it wouldn't surprise me if it still rings and receives calls at the same time

    I feel that there's a huge improvement in how the screen follows my finger, much smoother.

    One thing I have noticed is that when I am downloading something like an app from the market etc, the little 3G in the top notification bar changes to a 'H".

    The H stands for HSDPA, which is alot faster than 3G when browsing and downloading :)

    Right after updating and restarting the phone, halfway through start up a image popped up of a camera above the phone for a while. Does this mean anything?

    Wow!!! That's brilliant! So that's why we've been waiting ages for this update. SE have managed to add the ability to display holographic images. I assume that's what you mean when you say the image popped up ABOVE the phone. :D

    Sorry, just being silly. I'm guessing you meant at the top of the display.
