    The dreaded "Phone idle" and "Cell standby" tasks have surpassed "Display" on my DroidX for battery usage after the recent .605 update.
    There is some possibility that recent app updates for a few apps from the Android Market could be causing this, but it is unlikely. I have already wiped all app caches and the system cache partition. I was even using JuiceDefender successfully with .602

    Is a Factory Data Reset the only recourse now? :(

    I actually got rid of Juice defender after the update and have noticed no remarkable difference in my battery life. I'm a light to moderate user btw.

    ive noticed a fast drain after a couple of updates, i found if you let it drain down it will sit on empty for hours...i let it die and recharge, it recalibrated and all is well. worked on last three updates for me

    I haven't noticed any differences in battery life, but have seen a number of bugs with media players (music and video, locking up) that didn't happen before.
