Just did the new update. Has anyone else had problems with their phone doing a "soft reset". After a phone call screen will dim and I get the loading clock. Then it comes back but all of the widgets have to reload and it acts like it has just done a full reboot. Any thoughts?

So I received the OTA notification and tried to push the update that way but it just said that my system was updated after dismissing the notification... I then tried to manually apply the update which I did through clockwork recovery with the "apply update.zip" option.. It worked fine but then showed that I had lost su access due to setcpu going into "read only mode".. So I tried to re root using the un revoked method which when tried showed I was S OFF and then stalled at the reboot step and may have deleted clockwork recovery or changed the recovery back to stock so I can't revert back to stock.. wow this is becoming a complicated process just to apply a maintenance update.. any help guys??

Definitely saw an improvement in battery life yesterday (please note: I am a -light- user of the phone.)
Email - Twitter - gReader are some of the apps I most used yesterday. Would love to use Facebook (but we won't go there, I'll rant for days about that app...)
At 10:18am yesterday it came off the charger, it didn't scream for it's charger (15% battery) until 12:26am this morning.
With that said I have my apps set for background notification delays of half-hour, I honestly don't need it refreshing every five minutes! If I'm out and knocking around with my phone, I'll manually refresh it.
All in all I'm satisfied, definitely seeing improvement.

Rooted - OTA considerations
If you're rooted, there are a couple of things you have to consider if you want to install the OTA. I think overall it should work, and you should be able to get back to root (as long as you enabled the S-OFF unrevoked feature).
To be able to install the OTA, if you're using a custom recovery (Clockwork, AmonRa, etc.), you have to go back to a stock recovery. Once you do that, then you should be able to load the OTA update.zip on the SD card. HOWEVER, if you're like me and removed bloatware from the /system/app folder, this looks like it causes the update.zip to fail. Inside the update.zip are patch files, which patch system .apk files. If you removed apps (like CityID, HTC Footprints, MyVerizon, etc.), the update.zip tries to patch them, and since they're gone, fails the update.
Luckily, I didn't delete those .apk files, I just moved them to another folder. So I'm in the process of copying them back, then trying to run the update.zip and seeing what happens. I'll report back.
It worked! The update was indeed failing because I had removed some stock apps. Once I put them back, the update loaded, and I could manually root it again.
