Notification Light Bug - Present
The notification light does not blink while charging, thanks someguyatx:
Scrolling - Improved
Before anyone asks, I tested the scrolling behavior.
It appears improved to me, but it may still be beyond the tolerance levels for some people. It is more sensitive than GB, but less than the previous release.
Again, everyone has different tolerances for how fast auto scroll is triggered, so your mileage may vary.
Personally I didn't really have any problem with the behavior in the previous releases, I just adjusted my behavior to match how it behaved, but I did recognize that it behaved differently from GB.
Confirmation from tmeader, thanks:
Wifi - Present
Various reports of wifi dropping out at work (more complex wifi configuration) but working fine at home (simple wifi configuration) There was a theory put forth this might be related to DHCP timeout settings. Not a lot of detail other than that.
Bluetooth - Fixed
Reports are that bluetooth pairing is improved also, thanks mmark27
Audio/Video Playback - Fixed
Reports are .wmv playback is working again, thanks kingdazy
Reports are .flac playback works, thanks kobridge
Villain123 was having problems with consistent .mkv playback, which appear to be resolved in FD26
Radio - Varies
This will be highly dependent on the signals in your area and how Sprint's towers are performing. Probably 1/3 will say it improved, 1/3 say it is the same, and 1/3 will feel it is worse. I'm joking but being serious at the same time. I would suggest you try the modem for a full day at least, testing performance at various points in the day and with different speedtest servers, before coming to a conclusion. If you can try it on weekends as well as weekdays, that would be best.
Having said that, user Guocamole reports 1.66M/.58M with this modem, thanks for the report
oscarthegrouch FD19 vs FD26
GPS - Varies
Just like Radio performance, GPS performance can be variable as there are sometimes software and hardware antennae issues at play and they aren't mutally exclusive.
Having said that, mmark27 reports first build he was able to get GPS lock indoors.
##DEBUG# tool NOT using MSL - Present
The debug tool triggered when you type ##DEBUG# in the dialer is asking for some lock code which isn't your MSL. It isn't known what code this is so effectively ##DEBUG# is unusable, which makes debugging signal problems difficult. Entering MSL results in invalid lock code message.
MTP / USB Mass Storage - Present
There is still no UI to switch from MTP mode to USB Mass Storage Mode. I think this is a mistake because many PCs do not support MTP or don't support it well. USB Mass Storage Mode allows your phone to show up as a USB drive when you plug it into a computer and is much better supported. Workaround and issue is covered in more detail here:
Thanks Weltwon for pointing it out here:
Contacts - Fixed
FC and hanging in contacts appears to be resolved, clear contacts storage and let it sync if you restored your data and it is still FCing, thanks mmark27
Email - FC in combined view - Fixed
Email FC in combined view reportedly fixed, thanks jamesey
Email - Multiple exchange accounts - Fixed
Multiple exchange accounts reportedly works now, thanks syphex
Visual VoiceMail - Present
Reportedly still FCs in certain situations, thanks Weltwon
Market/Play Store - Present
Reportedly FCs if you download and install apps too quickly, thanks Weltwon.
Reportedly fixed if you download the latest market/play app, thanks batting1000
Lockscreen Weather - Present
When you enable lockscreen weather, even though it is initially configured for fahrenheit, the screen shows celsius. When you toggle the setting, then it corrects itself - thanks JohnCorleone
