    I know it's early... but

    I have been running it for 5 hours now and my standard battery is at 55% -- with pretty heavy usage (4G on, Wifi connection) and some app downloading, some calls, many texts, lots of reading the forums -- this is much better than before (I am unrooted and was on .893 -- had the phone for 5 weeks so far on this go around).

    No BSOD (I usually was getting one per day).

    No random reboots (I was getting average of 2 per day).

    Will know after the bus ride home in 1.5 hours how we did on data drops (had two places that were always an issue -- I will be streaming Netflix all the way home and will know if I get dreaded buffering).

    Anyone else have some initial impressions?

    Have only been running .902 for about a half hour but it looks pretty good so far. Before the update I had trouble maintaining a data connection. It would usually be 3g, occasionally 4g, many times no connection at all. I was stock, .893. Since the update it has been a steady 4g, albeit it has only been about a half hour :) If this keeps up I may go back to using it as a hotspot!

    After my 902 OTA my phone grew legs and kicked me in the balls.

    Haven't noticed anything different other than MORE BLOATWARE ADDED. Mog and Slingbox. Lame!

    Also pissed with the new Emergency Alerts app that come with 902. Presidential alerts are MANDATORY. I don't want any alert from Obama. It'll be a lie.

    Besides that....running fine :)

    902 give us anything besides bloat over 901?

    Wondering if its worth it to update to 902 from 901 or just wait for whatever comes next.

    The radio in 902 is different than 901. I just got mine on 902 this morning so I can't tell you how much better if at all it is. I was very happy with 901.

    My phone's performance is better overall... pretty sure either the radio and/or kernal are different than .901. Only bloat added over .901 was amazon mp3 and vcast app store. Your call, but I'd say do it. Simple solution to the "bloatware": don't open the apps. As for the Mog/Slingbox/Emergency alert.... I got all of those on the .901 update. I haven't had time to test battery, as I flashed the software while on the charger and just left it on all night.

    My radio's stronger than ever and no data drops so far. Overall, other than the radio signal being stronger (-69dB) just as smooth and bug free as 901 was.

    I was originally on 901 with very few issues but I wanted to test the update so I rolled back to 893 (had to run FixCDT) but now I am on 902 and it is running very well. I wont know till later when I get to drive through some weak areas but it seems just as good if not better than 901.

    If running stock BLUR.. Go To App screen and perform a search... See what happens. Just saying.

    I've had that issue since the leaked 5.7.893... not the end of the world for me!

    Interesting.. I did not have it with Stock 893.. Now do with 902...

    However, I do normally run ADW, and do not have the issue.

    My question is will Moto hold the update and fix this issue?
