    Default Droid November Update

    Have any others here received the update soak text or not?
    If so, have you noticed any improvements? I have not noticed anything to really write home about.
    What should I be looking for?

    Camera improvement is the main feature.

    I've been disappointed with that however. Still a great phone but low light camera is still hit or miss.

    My phone is on the update but I can't comment on the battery life as I've stopped paying attention to that after few days of owning the phone - it holds up to day and a half of moderate use. That's more than I need.

    I got the update and I haven't tested the camera yet but I did notice that the capacitive touch button lights now turn off when watching video on YouTube, Netflix, and when I play movie that is on my phone. It is so nice not having the button lights on while watching a movie!

    Thanks for the heads up on the capacitive touch buttons. I did find that when taking pictures and swiping to the right you can no longer look through recent pictures. You get a mandatory choice between the gallery or photos app. I do not have a card reader to test, YAYTech.
    It would be nice if a list of all the changes in this update were posted somewhere.

    If I've disabled a bunch of bloatware from my phone like all the Verizon sync, security, and other various back up apps that don't appear to do anything, is there any chance it will affect my ability to receive the update?

    Swiping to the right works on my updated camera after selecting the gallery for always.

    Check out my Ookla Speedtest result. What's your speed? http://www.speedtest.net/my-result/a/642470002
    Wow. Just did a few speed tests after the new software installed and this was my slowest speed. 57 MBs down and 14 MBs up. Camera is also noticeably better.

    Looks like I'll be preparing for the update this weekend; uninstalling pwn and restoring recovery. From all my lurking, it would seem that root is still possible, if only with RockMyMoto. Anyone have any other tips/suggestions?

    The picture looks just a little bit warmer, not quite as whitewashed as the first one.

    Woke up this morning (5:00 a.m. eastern) to my Maxx downloading the update. Accepted it, and so far, so good. I'll need to shoot a picture in my office later to see if I can do a before/after camera comparison. Got the 50 GB Drive addition, no problem. Not sure I'll use 50 GB, I have been using drive for a couple of years and only have about 1/2 GB used.

    First speedtest at home was over 50 MB/s, about 10 faster than previous tests. However, that's an early AM test. Will be more interesting mid morning from work, and to watch Network Monitor Mini numbers as I download stuff going forward.

    Had to re-disable NFL Mobile.

    So...which of the two more accurately represents the actual colors of that space? The top one is more eye-pleasing to me, whether it's more accurate or not.

    Update on my phone showed up at about 5am today as well. 50GB google drive worked fine. Haven't tried LTE speed test yet. Camera seems a little better but I have not tried it enough yet to be sure.

    I didn't realize this update also allowed the Moto camera app to be updated from Google Play, just like the Moto X.. that's nice. From what I've read the poor camera performance is really all about the SW, so in theory we should get more improvements quickly without waiting on Verizon.

    The worst thing about this update is that it wiped out Maps 6 and you're stuck with Maps 7. You can't uninstall 7 and revert back to 6. I had a large amount of Places saved and now can't access them with Maps 7. Thanks Google. They promised to bring this feature back to Maps in July, but it's looking like a broken promise.

    Did you have to do anything special for the 50GB Google Drive? Mine is still only showing 15GB after the update
