I pretty much agree with what Steve said. I bought my Revo on release day and have been generally very pleased. I tried JuiceDefender too and removed it before GingerBread appeared as I had a problem with the radios not always waking up on incoming calls/data. Hasn't been a problem since GB and battery life is much better for me. (I have an extended battery but no longer use it.)
I use GO Keyboard which I prefer to Swype and it works fine. (I also use several of the other GO apps like GO Launcher EX, GO Contacts and Dialer and GO SMS Pro. These are all very customizable and competent FREE apps that also work fine under GB.)
I use the wireless hotspot feature and haven't had any problem with it under GB.
I noticed the same soft key light issue Steve did.
I live in an area with 3G service and commute to work in an area with 4G and the phone handles the transition and hand-off without issue.
The new LG Optimus LTE that was released in Korea and is now slated for sale in Canada as the Eye or whatever they've settled on interests me greatly. With an HD screen, dual core processor and 1gb of RAM, I'll be watching to see if it shows up at Verizon in some form. (I read that AT&T was getting a version of it, but that's not near enough to get me to change to AT&T.) I read that Verizon is getting an LG model called the Spectrum, but there hasn't been any information on it and it may be some other mid-tier model. Have to wait and see. - MarkC
