    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. :)
