    There are several threads outlining the changes......setting menu now has color, upgrades to camera, some minor ui changes like the text message app, two new bloat, changes to motocast, and the biggest change of all is a significant improvement to the radios for data connectivity.

    Just wait for the next ota to 174, it has virtually no noticeable changes.

    Negative..... did you not see my comment about the net update being 174? I am running 174 now. It will be the next update in about a month.

    One thing that reallllllly bugs mE and still continues to bug me is they changed the settings button location. At home screen when you press the menu button the little menu pops up with settings being on the right. But after the update they moved setting on the left side. So every time i go for settings I hit search instead. It will take some I'm to get use too. I also wanted them to redo the power widget that come with the phone. I wish they would allow it to be customized. So I use a third party widget. Also in the settings menu they changed the color of the icons and some of the logos. I liked it when it was one solid color. Now the settings menu looks a little tacky but that's my opinion.

    Do you keep your phone on 4G all the time or do you switch back and forth?

    I'm on 4G all day now. Its working great. I'm on Bluetooth, 4G, even some GPS when I need it and I'm getting great battery life. Better than all my previous Droids.

    I love the new look! I'm guessing they're doing it to gear towards ICS .
    my display is crisper and brighter now!
    The entire experience our 40% snappier.
    Hell, I may have just cut myself in my excitement, lol.

    Watch out, I hear that with each upgrade, they are able to get a sharper honing of the RAZR's edges...
