Issues with the froyo update
Its been about 2 weeks since I updated my phone to the froyo update via motorola.com/update . Initially I didn't notice anything but now I realize the following issues :
1- Any photo with flash turns completely black.
2- UI is sluggish. All transitions were always smooth earlier but now they take some time on most occasions.
3- Battery life seems to be reduced at times. The last charge lasted only about 15 hours before I was prompted for recharging it, with "Android OS" taking up 30% of it. And it wasn't because of voice calls, they didn't even feature in the list.
When I first called Motorola India support about a week back, I was told that a new update just got out 2 days back and that I should go and re-update my phone from the website. But when I tried doing that, the software told me that I had the latest version already.
Its been only a little over 4 months since I have owned this phone, out of which a full 3 weeks I didn't have it because it took the India support folks that much time to replace my original phone with a new one because of the infamous reboot problem associated with this phone. It seemed to make a lot of sense when I bought it but I'm wondering now whether I made the right choice.
