    I don't know if everyone is having good luck with the new update but my phone is running great and the battery life has def improved. It seems like smart actions are working better now too. I haven't tried the camera yet but I am hoping that improved too.

    My Razr is running a lot smoother with this update. I'm rooted but on stock ROM and so far haven't run into any screen freezes which required a hard reboot to fix * knock on wood* LOL

    It is good to see the "good reports" with the update...I am pleased with the update as well - phone definitely seems to scroll and transition with ease, although I did not have any complaints prior to the update...but it seems that the update didn't break anything, may have just made it stronger.

    The battery life is night and day for me. Before the update I was getting about 12 hours on a battery (I never turn off lte or dim my screen and use the thing constantly) and it took about 2 1/2 hours to grab a full charge from dead. Now I'm at 26 hours and it charges at about 1% per minute! Couldn't be more pleased, I was considering splurging for the maxx now i don't see a need. :biggrin:

    I am glad to see others having the same experience as me. I loved this phone before and even more now. I hope they don't change a thing.

    The camera definitely takes better pictures, 4g connection is much more consistent and battery life is much better when the phone is on standby (I would lose 20% in a little over an hour without even using the phone).

    Did the OTA and phone kept the root, I am able to use it as HS without a problem. I can't belive it, most of the time rooting is lost when update is done.

    Did the upgrade come through automatically for everyone? It seems like it, with all the replies. If I hadn't stumbled upon this thread I'd be missing it... checked my phone for "system updates" and it said one was available. Just now dl'ing it... excited. :)

    You would've received the notice by the 13th. As for the rest of us, it would be a mix of notifications, manual checks and already running it for a week or so because we downloaded the update when it was first leaked (like me...heh, heh....).

    I checked mine manually the other day after hearing that a update may be available ....and it was. I was nervous to update at first because my phone was working great but I did anyway and I am happy I did.

    this OTA stuff (what does it stands for anyway? LOL) is it for Verizon/US only?

    how about us Canadians with Rogers?

    well, rather, i'm on Brazilian EN ROM coz i screwed up my stock ROM........ did the update check manually and says "no update available" :(

    ps: 21hr 80%??? wow, with a couple game playing, browsing, and regular fooling around, my 100% at midnight would be 10% by 8PM the next day......

    I don't see any improvement at all, good thing the phone didn't need any improvement to start with. Yesterday I had 41% after 16 hours. Last night however, nearly died after 6 hours. I loaded several podcasts over 4g so that be it, today battery life seems normally great.

    I've never had any data drops, battery problems, and I never use my phone as a hot spot. I nearly didn't down load it. I've found that Moto's updates are either brilliant or complete nightmares.
    I'm glad for all of you good experiences but I'm from Mo on this.

    OTA stands for over the air.
    I had my first glitch this morning with my Razr, when I went from my home screen to the app drawer the screen rotated to landscape and would not rotate back unless I went back to the home screen. I rebooted the phone and it is working fine again.
