Droid's recent update boosts battery life?

Chris Ziegler

That tiny over-the-air update that Droids have started receiving this week might be more important than just the Facebook issues it seemed to patch up, which really wouldn't come as much of a surprise considering the amount of testing rigor Verizon undoubtedly put that poor update package through prior to release. PhoneArena is reporting that users are seeing significantly improved battery life -- always a welcome change, no matter how good battery life might be to start -- and that the new ROM also makes some unspecified changes in preparation for that Android 2.1 support that Motorola has said we'll be getting. Let us know when you get this and keep an eye on your juice; we'll be doing the same.
