    I gotta agree that the difference in battery life alone was worth the update. I'm at 70% 12+ hours off the charger, I was at 60% yesterday before the update 6 hours off the charger.
    The camera is certainly improved, not that I expect that much from a cell phone camera but, still great update.

    Google talk works fantastic as well. Video chatting couldn't be any lower of a priority for me personally and I just tried for the hell of it.
    Really happy with the D3 now, hopefully the stupid runaway cursor issue is solved.

    I LOVE the video in Google talk btw. The front camera is pretty decent.

    I've never run a smart phone 36 hours without a charge but I am about to now. Extended battery. Pretty light usage: screen on 3.5 hours (mostly Dolphin HD, K9, Notepad); battery in performance mode (always checking 3 email accounts).

    I don't need anywhere near 36 hours. If I can unplug in the morning and not need a charge for 12-15 hours then I am totally satisfied. I was usually doing this before the update but now...this phone is THE BEST PHONE ON EARTH. Screw 4G, this is fast enough and I value a long battery life over big bandwidth.

    We are the champions, my friends.

    I got the ota software update sent to my phone last night. I haven't really used it enough to notice much difference but I did take a pic and to ME the blue looked like it was gone but it's so subtle to me and I'm used to it so maybe it's just me. What other impprovements should I expect? Glad it finally came. Also I don't know if its just me but scrolling on the browser seems to me a little smoother and faster, again could be just me and could be from the phone being restarted.

    Oh one thing I DID notice right away was before when I'd be using wifi the wifi bars and 3g bars would both be blue, now when using wifi only the wifi bars are blue and the bars for the 3g stay white all the time. Oh and one other thing I noticed is I have an app called car performance. Before when I'd go to the speedometer mode it would work but at the bottom it would keep saying searching for gps. Well just now from inside my house I turned the gps on and opened the app and for the first time it said satellites in range 15 fixed 0. It did that within about 5 seconds which it never did before so I'm HOPING this means the gps issues are fixed!

    I just took a quick video of my niece cuz honestly I've had no opinions on the video cuz I've hardly used it but the 20 some second video I just took turned out great with good quality and no problems. It does seem that the blue tint is gone but I'll have to take more out door pics to tell for sure. So far I've used it quite a bit since off the charger and the battery does seem to be holding up better so far.
