    Just got the update. I’ve restarted it a few times to get things settled in. First problem is there is a HUGE lag in my typing. Way worse then before. And the biggest problem that I can see to cause that is the ram usage… immediately at start-up, without any apps opened, my ram usage is 1.15gb/1.77gb… before it was between 750-800mb/1.77gb. This is the final straw… I’m done with this phone and quite possible verizon altogether.

    Also… holy crap this thing is overheating as well. I’ve adjusted my grip twice trying to write this because my fingers are burning from the back side of the phone.
