How long it has taken other phones to get updates, this was pretty quick.
for users to complain about issues with phone because they didn't do a thorough test of the software* Very Happy

Got it

Got the update late last night. So far, so good. I like the tabbed notification drawer, and performance is definitely snappier. Some folks have also said they think the screen is a bit sharper. I can't really tell on that. There have also been reports that the voicemail indicator is broken, but I use Youmail, so I can't say. Also reports that the front-facing camera doesn't work with GTalk, but I haven't tried it.

So far, I'm happy. I'll have to see how battery life is affected. Some folks have noticed a slight improvement using leaked builds.
Im sure the battery life has gotten better, the older Android gets, the better the battery life has gotten.
