besides the lagging on the browser which most people are experiencing it seems that the physical keyboard light on mine is having an issue

if i restart my phone and slide it out it doesnt light up..in order for it to light up i have to hit the power button to turn the screen off then if i turn it back on or just slide the keyboard out the lights work
 
There seems to be a new bug with the keyboard backlighting, albeit a minor one. After the reboot, the keyboard backlighting will not work. Also, if I power down and then power up, the keyboard lighting will not work either. Both are easily fixed by adjusting the brightness under sounds and display in the settings.

For me, I have to select auto brightness and then remove it in order to get it to work.

Mine is doing this also. While typing a long message I noticed that the four dedicated buttons turned off as they normally do, but when I went to type on the hardware keyboard the backlight wouldn't turn on (of the keyboard or the dedicated buttons). I find to fix this I just had to lock the screen for a sec then unlock it and it lit up again.
