you don;t need 24 hours to tell if the battery drains faster or slower, u need an hour because once u begin f-ing with ur bb and ur battery vanishes...gee, i wonder..lol.
like i can tell u if u really wanna know, what issues i had with every .5xx release. there's a reason why I'm still on .486 and it's not that forgot to update my profile. even with .600 i can describe to you the freezing issues im having on a constant basis while typing albeit using the virtual or physical keyboard. i use my bb in a particular way and from all the OSs i've used, .486 does it for me. to each is own because every person uses their BB differently, SO...i don't just make things up.
so yes, i can tell within 2 hours of install pretty much everything about the OS.
any more questions?
No more questions, just an observation... Having spent a number of years in software development, and having run a number of beta programs - any beta user who thought or claimed that they "can tell within 2 hours of install pretty much everything about the OS" is pretty useless as a beta tester - because that's a fairly absurd claim.
