    When I first updated to firmware xxUBMFD the phone performed brilliantly. I then updated to XXUBMI1 and it seemd a little laggy to me. Also google services was hogging my battery during standy so in my google account settings i removed syncing from all accept gmail. Also when my GPS is on for a long time my phone started to heat up. Is that natural. Once again which is a more stable version.XXUBMHD or XXUBMI1
