Verizon Wireless just informed us of specific OS fixes in the Storm update. Here’s a quick at-a-glance look:
It also fixes any accidental powering-down the device may have done in the past, muted incoming audio during voice-activated dialing, audio increases over the headset during incoming calls, and the elimination of a “cannot complete call as dialed” message when users dialed *86. We have a Storm with the old OS on it, as well as one with the new update so we decided to compare the two. We’ve noticed that the screen switches between horizontal and vertical mode just a hair faster after the update. However, the display still doesn’t recognize every finger press; typing in the phone number for an MMS took longer than it should have. We did appreciate that a Babylon AD trailer, preloaded on the phone, didn’t crash at all during two playbacks: an issue we noticed before. The Storm still feels sluggish throughout, though, and that’s an improvement that we hope is fixed in an upcoming update. We’d also like to see improved battery life performance, if possible. If you have a Storm, please let us know in the comments section below if the update has helped you.
