Lets keep this for 026 firmware pros and cons

Improvements

* Battery Information has New Entry Android Core Apps.
* Wireless Works after enabling and disabling Flight Mode. ( No Bug here)
* Smoother scrolling through menus etc.. and swiping through the home screens..(im_IceMan)
* WiFi & BT + HBH-IS800 it is finally working you can surf the web via WiFi read email while listening to music via BT headset. I also noticed that BT range is better I can now roam the flat without loosing headset connection.(Kradovan)
* 1.smoother scrolling and smooth popping up of widgets menu.. 2. unlock screen doesnt lag.(Viditkalra)
* Geotags are now maintained when uploading to Picasa!(Murmeljenta)

Disasters

* In Call Volume Settings is not permanent. For example: A call comes and you increased the volume to 100%( It is pretty descent even in louder conditions). After the call, it reverts back to 50%.
* The options in the camera app are slightly different. I had previously set mine to tag images, but with the update, that was reset.(Murmeljenta)

I will keep on adding stuffs here.....

My wireless wasn't switching on automatically when I woke the phone back up from it's sleep.... on v..020..

but now on v..026 it works fine..

seems to be smoother scrolling through menus etc.. and swiping through the home screens..

(Disaster.. not really a disaster) Swype stopped working - said that it had been installed on a different device.. so had to remove and reinstall it..

Haven't seen anything else different..

I'll definitely agree with these (can't comment on the others yet). My system feels amazingly fast compared to how it did under 023. I can navigate FolderOrganizer as quickly as I select folders, whereas under 023 there was a delay each time it drew a folder. Everything just feels much more responsive.

Did you get the 026 firmware through SEUS, or did you root to it?

Because if you rooted to it, then the issue is with your root and not the firmware. Lack of paid apps is common after rooting. It often fixes itself within 24 hours, or requires some extra steps to fix.
