    Sometime in the night last night, AT&T pushed 2.3.6 to my phone. Anyone else get it? Anyone notice any changes? I poked around a bit this morning and do not see anything different.

    Seems a massive battery improvement to me

    I just found better battery life and the camera has a new UI but before 2.3.6 I was running 2.3.3 so the camera might have been changed after 2.3.3. What version did you come from ?

    I'm on AT&T on a global (UK) model. Checked the OTA update w/Samsung account and checked Kies, but no dice. Still on 2.3.4 but can't complain. I'll take 2.3.5/2.3.6 if they come in an official capacity, but ICS is the only update I truly care about right now. I'll wait patiently for that.

    Check the S2 (AT&T) forum -- lots of people there, including me, have found battery life to be measurably poorer after the upgrade. Wi-Fi seems better, but battery life is bad.

    I was on 2.3.4 before the upgrade.

    I've had very little time with 2.3.6 to date, but from what I've seen...

    -New "swipe in" screen
    Don't have to go from one side of the screen to the next, just an inch and a half in any direction from the point of touch

    -Live Wallpapers from before (Microbes, Galaxy swirl, network links) have been removed and replaced with ones that tie-into real time weather (windmill, ocean)

    -Icon images updated
    E.g. notepad now has a 'T' in it.
