For people that actually got it, did it live up to the fanboys hype??
Not the fanboys hype, yet it helped my battery significantly. 1:45 PM and still have 88% of battery from 7AM with moderate usage. I did the update last night and let the battery fully drain after.
Otherwise, 2.0(1) is coming soon I hope for nav.
^ that would be your choice. 2.0 and 2.1 were never garenteed by Verizon in the begining at all you were garanteed was 1.5 with cdma support only. but because verizon wants to keep all thier new customers they had to release an update. HTC will update sense when it ready and only when it's ready not cause i threatened to bring back my phone. they did this with the G1 and all was good. they'll do it again. making threats does nothing. HTC and Verizon still make money.
and yes, the update must be doing something wonderful with the battery! My fully charged phone has been off of the charger now for 10 minutes, and I still show more than 53%!
Wound a little tight ain't we.
No, it wasn't meant like, give me an update or I'm taking my phone back, it's just good old economics. I have 30 days to decide if this phone's for me. By the time they get a 2.x update out to me, there should (or soon thereafter) be other options (passion?) available. It would be stupid to waste my upgrade, and get stuck for the next 2 years, with these choices coming out. Now, if 2.x was out today, I might just say, sure, this is it, but since I can't even take it for a test drive, I'll keep my options open.
I for one will wait until my 30 day return period comes due. If I haven't seen anything by then, I'm returning my two.
