Now that the .167 has been out for a while lets have this poll
It seems that both Os work really well
But which one do YOU prefer?

I'm running 168 now, and apart from the bbm clickable link issue its great.

162 is perfect as long as youtube isn't a priority. 167/168 seem to do much better with it. But 167 has memory issues.

I'd vote for 162 if you want legit, and 168 if you don't care.

Up until last Friday, 162 was excellent. Suddenly I got the spinning clock for 2 days causing my battery to drain so fast and heat the device such that I thought my battery was going to explode. I was running the official Rogers release. Upgrading to 167 solved the problem, hence it got my vote.

Default Why only compare .162 to .167

Maybe should compare to .166 also. For me, .166 is better than .162 and .167. With both .162 and .167 I used to get java errors. And .166 has the same amount of memory as .162
