    Changes to the Power Bar widget including the location icon never fully turning off (either half or full) and icon changes. Here’s the first picture I took with the new camera. Seems to handle the dynamic range well. One negative however is that my battery seems to be dripping fast than it used to. Not a huge deal since it’s still the best battery in a phone but it is slightly noticeable. More features to come.
