    It is weird because mine got really hot while it was updating then when it finished and rebooted I rebooted one more time and checked it out for speed and all and it was fine no prblem but also I use battery saver mode all the time dont know if thats why.Either way it was almost dead so its turned off charging now this way i can test battery life and see if motorola is full of huey or not about their so called "improved battery life" lol
    Well it seems that the battery life is actually worse than before.... I've noticed that for over past two days when i flashed with 1.83 from xda.... (i reflashed back to 1.57 and got the official today)
    so its been 2h 47min and the battery is down to 70% the display was on for 1h 17min... browser for 10 minutes.... so yes its worse than before. well at least on my phone... some people might have different results my phone also gets hot at the bottom while others are not reporting this problem. its interesting how the same update version differently affects some devices.....

    could these problems have anything to do with the fact that you had flashed your phone previously? Im a firm believer that you should always only update from official sources. I understand the frustration waiting for the updates to be released. Is it really worth screwing up your phone though? Im not saying YOU have screwed up your phone though. Just curious I guess.

    I believe you ran a speedtest with your wireless still connected. Those are insane speeds to be 4g network alone. Try again with wi-fi disabled!

    yeahh Super Amoled is the way to go! I might get the Infuse 4g too if galaxy S II will be too expensive or wont have ATT 4g bands... Just have to see how it feels in hand with that gigantic screen.. gee 4.5..... thats almost like a tablet not a phone.....
    btw thanks for your advice to wait for official release. good thing i flashed back to 1.57

    Yeah I believe the only "true" way to know you are getting proper performance is if you have never rooted your phone. That rules out any thoughts like, "I wonder if I hadn't flashed/rooted or whatever if my phone would perform like its supposed to?" Im glad my Atrix is still stock/untouched. Looks like Im gonna have to go by McDonalds and get on their wi-fi to get this update and test it out! Can't wait!

    The highest I've ever gotten was 5.91 down and 1.57 up on Wifi, and I have 12mbps AT&T U-verse, so I dont see that being possible even with wifi; I'd at least be getting close to 12. With wifi off, I just got 1.93mbps down and 1.55 up. That's a significant change on the up side (I was only getting about at most .20mbps before), but no change on the down side.

    Yeah I forgot that they also said that this update would have better wi-fi connectivity.

    I just got the update today. In Sunnyvale CA, I'm getting about 5 mbps download and 0.6 mbps upload. Both are about double what I typically got before the update.

    Ran a handful of speed tests immediately after download. These were all on a Comcast network connection out of Philadelphia.

    Test Best Worst

    Ping 119ms 158ms

    DL 675 kbps 87 kbps

    UL 1511 kbps 135 kbps


    Oh, and unit is slightly warmer on the bottom.

    WiFi results from crappy office connection:

    Ping: 27ms
    DL: 1455 kbps
    UL: 3319 kbps

    Can't wait to see what my home FiOS numbers look like. But the H network results suck.

    OK,

    Speed: after running lots of tests for several hours, my ping is consistently around 150, was 295 before, download seems the same, anywhere from 1.5 to 4, upload went from 100-300 to 700-1.3. Not bad, I always want more, but this is very usable.

    Skype: no clue, don't use it.

    Battery Life: too soon to tell a difference, but I still am VERY happy with battery life coming from the Palm Pre and then HTC EVO. No complaints here.

    Heat: My phone gets warm but nothing to get alarmed at and only when under heavy use. I had several Palm Pre's that also got warm, but one got hot, and it was very easy to tell the difference. The one that ran hot also suffered from poor battery life(duh), slow speeds, etc. Every once in a while you just get a lemon. I check my battery temp and the highest I have seen is 38C.
