Only negative appears to be that my battery seems to drain faster. Anybody else notice any drop in battery performance?
It is possible that my battery is getting old (more than 1.5 years). In that regard, has anybody bought a replacement battery for their Shine Plus? I see that eBay has some after market batteries for less than $5 with free shipping from Hong Kong. I have purchased a case and screen protector for my galaxy tab and my wife and son's phone from various HK vendors and have been very pleased with the price and quality.
EDIT: It is starting to look like it may be just a battery problem not an updated OS problem. I borrowed my son's battery from his less than 1 year old Optimus One. The battery drain and performance was normal with the replacement battery (ie almost like when I first bought Shine Plus).
