I got my TP2 on VZW yesterday and installed 6.5 on it. I don't know why, but battery life is REALLY BAD. I have it check my Exchange server every five minutes rather than push mail in order to conserve power. My XV6800 lasts all day even when I make calls and have it connecting via BT to my car kit.

This thing went from an overnight full charge removed at 10:00AM today to the low battery warning at 5:30PM, and I didn't even make one call! I guess it's going back soon.

Other complaints:
The "Sense" interface for email is a horrible pain in the butt. Oh, gee, I can swipe sideways to review mail in my Inbox, but getting to Outlook's nested folders is not an easy task.

The touch screen is way too sensitive. My XV6800 was more finger-friendly.

The auto-orientation works poorly. When I turn it on its side, I often have to touch the screen to get it to re-orient itself.

The nicest thing about it is the very well laid out keyboard. Nice for fat fingers like mine!
