I have no issues with mine. It's a great phone.
ditto and seconded. Never had any of the problems that get complained about here.

that's very abnormal. If you've followed the instructions and tips in the more recent battery threads in this forum and are still having this, you should exchange your battery. As for your dimming, you need to set a custom battery mode in the battery settings menu that keeps your dimness to what you want all day and all night. that's probably why yours keeps switching up again. Check my recent posts about 1 week ago I've provided all the info on how I keep my battery long lasting and it works very well. Some useful links in those posts too I think.

Like I said, if that doesn't work, your likely have a bum battery. Mine was going much longer than the 5 hours you're reporting with heavy use even before I started fiddling with my settings

Eh AT&T is ok. I have had all the carriers and they are the best of the worse. My iPhone 4 had its fair share of problems, but nothing like this phone. My battery doesn't even last a day on low use. Thats another issue...

FYI you need a WiFi connection to download....I didn't realize that at first. Update is great. It looks like they changed the colors a bit on the screen, improved battery life on first charge since update, and more responsive...

All android phones require more customization and tweaking than iEasy my friend, which is part of why we love them. I've actually been telling almost all my friends who ask me to just buy an iPhone. Not because I think it's better but because I just don't think it's worth the hassle of watching friends who aren't into tech struggle. Unless you somehow got a bum battery, you can get well over 24 hours between charges on an Atrix on low use. This patch is going to make it even better

I have the Bell Atrix so no update for me. I've tried searching the update.zip manual update for the Atrix but was unable to get much from Googling I did the manual update like this when I had my Nexus One. I was thinking that there is something similar for the Atrix. I think you'd need to ask in the XDA Atrix Forum if you can do a manual update.

Got 1 day and 15 hours yesterday from the phone before it got to 20% and I decided to charge it. Very impressive.

Motorola = FAIL

My battery life has been horrible after the update. I have done a factory reset to try and see if some of the apps (maybe K9 mail) is not working right with the update.

Prior to the update I could go all day and have about 60-70% battery when I got home at 6:00 or so. Now, using the phone less hands on (web browsing and stuff), but with the same Exchange/Gmail/K9 Imap Idle setups, I am down to 20-30% when I get home.
