Just upgraded from OS5 to OS6. I am pretty impressed. However such a drastic change in appearance has def got my hands full. It is taking a bit to get used to.
-i like how on the home screen u can click the date and time area and it brings up your connection status as well as alarm clock settings. nice feature (2 less icons to have on ur menu)
-i like how the menus do a quick fade in/out when making a selection
-i like the new ringers/ tunes
-bbm colours and layout are nice
- on home screen i like when u hover over an icon the text is super small for what you are hovering over (kinda dumb but i like)
-calendar app is nice
- browser is nice. easy to switch between multiple windows.
-camera - u can select between 10 shooting modes (night, beach, snow, text, landscape, sports etc)
-video cam - can select light on if u want, also change video resolution (cant remember if this available on os5)
-so far when im in my message box (i merge my email inboxes with sms and others etc), when i click menu button to compose new sms, i have to get into a submenu under "compose other" to initiate this. Before you would just choose which type of message you want to send in the menu (sms, email, pin mssg etc). unless i am not seeing something??
- in bbm; when viewing someones profile, u can't just slide over to their display pic to enlarge it, you have to hit menu and then click "enlarge display picture". small detail but why make it more complicated?
- in address book, there is a photo next to each entry. I wish you could disable this because i dont have pics for every contact, so its just some default grey empty box next to each individual name on my address book. wish it was cleaner. also like os5, you cannot change the size of font for address book. its so large u can only see 4 contacts before you need to scroll (just personal pref for me i guess)
-its a completely diff look if you are typing someones name from the homescreen to call them. like if i type "leo" it automatically brings up leo as my contact but also calendar, search youtube, search blackberry app, google local search, and search yahoo. all of this on a new search screen. i wish it just went to contact list automatically like os5, however maybe there is a way to change this back??
does anyone have a list of shortcut keystrokes for this os?
