    The Good and the Bad

    Manually updated Saturday. Gmail initially didn't sync but is now behaving. Perhaps the 10 minute battery pull helped, but I don't really know.

    One cool thing I noticed that I haven't seen mentioned is that the camera now geotags photos. Was I just missing that before?

    One bad thing is my battery life seems to have gotten shorter. Any clues why? Any suggestions. I had downloaded Google Earth (it is pretty cool) so I got rid of it just in case it was a cause of the problem. But the battery didn't even last half the day with little use.

    I downloaded an app called Juice Defender from the market. It seems to have drastically increased my pattery life. I also use an app called auto memory manager. Between the 2 of them I've more than doubled my battery life over stock. Even running Chevy's 1.0 oc kernel.

    Calm down there champ, verizon never promised us 5 homescreens. That was never mentioned once by them. If you took some time to read about the update before hand you would have realized what it all included. You can use helix launcher or something similar to get your extremely important extra screens. Helix works very well with the 2.1 update.

    Oh yeah, I almost forgot, Live Wallpapers also suck up battery power.

    Thanks, I am trying Juice Defender. I haven't used live wallpapers, sticking with beautiful Northern New Mexico scenery.

    No actually they dont affect your battery much at all.

    Speech to text is the big win.

    BUT

    This update appears to be pushing the limits of processor or something. Whenever I launch an app now, it stutters open...jerky...like a movie played at 6-8 frames per second. Does the same when closing.

    Anyone else experiencing this?

    Are you (heaven help me for using this word) :)icon_ nono2:)... rooted? When I looked at auto memory manager, it stated you had to be rooted to use all the functions...
