    OTA upgrade has improved DROID's battery life (Phone Arena News)

    So apparently it improves the droids battery life

    Does anyone have that file in update.zip form cuz I could go for some improved battery life, someone should definitely get this file out there with root for people to update to if it really has increased battery life

    I felt the battery was pretty good to begin with in 2.0. It seems to me my battery life got better with the 2.0.1 update as well. However, I haven't received the latest OTA update yet.

    This maintenance update is still just rumor to me. Until I see it myself... I don't believe it's a separate update.

    I mean I'll be up, just to check....:icon_ devil: Wouldn't be surprised to see you around either :)
    I just don't see VZW spending 4-5 days time rolling out a maintenance release only to turn around and spend another 4-5 days to roll out 2.1. That's all.

    I agree.

    At the same time though I don't deny the stupidity of people...

    Look at NBC with Conan.

    The last update (2.0.1) expressly addressed that battery life was extended. I didn't see much if any of a difference but it lead to a million post on the subject, both for and against.

    Whenever this update comes out I can guarantee you will see a short phase of overwhelming praise followed by a very long list of complaints.

    Remember you heard it here first. :)

    I know if you live in Southern Indiana you'd be lucky to see it by June. I don't think any company gives a crap about the midwest.

    The updates are totally random. There is no pattern to it whatsoever. If you get it first, you were just plain lucky. Doesn't go by state, by how much you use your Droid, and it doesn't even go by race or religion.

    You can try all you want but you won't be able to establish a pattern.

    That's just weird that they wouldn't have a system, but you're right. I'll never figure it out if they do.
