    Bear I'm with you on this. Battery life with .132 has been poor.

    jlev recommended 3 60-second battery pulls. I had battery drain issues with a previous OS and that did the trick on my phone so I have been doing this with every new OS install. You might want to try this also.

    Also, not clear if you wiped the phone prior to installing .132. There is still mixed opinion on whether wiping is necessary, but it works for me and doesn't take long to do. If you haven't doen a wipe, you might want to consider wiping and reinstalling .132, then do the 3 60-second battery pulls.

    Oh, but don't forget to backup your apps before wiping.

    I've been running .132 for about 5 hours now. It seems at least as good as v3.5. Signal strength is excellent and has remained at 1XEV and 5 bars since install. Speedtest shows download speed 389.67 (max 393.35) and upload at 308.34 (max 310.18). I'll give more feedback after I run the phone more.

    wow Bear...that's a whole other story! I have no additional info to offer on that kind of battery drain but I am not having that issue at all on this OS. Most reports that I've read here and elsewhere are indicating decent battery parameters with .132
    I'm using MeterBerry to monitor mine. Been up for 7 hours...averaging about 2.5% - 3.0%/hour with light to moderate use.

    I guess it's another example of how each phone reacts differently. Ive been texting, testing the camera and video, browsing and made a few calls and battery has only gone down 5%. I'll do a bit more browsing, which seem to eat up the battery, and report impact on battery later.

    One thing to try is to totally drain your battery to the point where it shuts off automatically. Then charge it back up again. These batteries have a memory and by doing this refreshes things.
    I thought lithium cell batteries didn't have memories?

    They do, that is why draining your battery fully will flash the memory on it. Try it out for yourself, you will a marked improvement in battery life.

    Lithium ion batteries do not have a memory effect like the old NiCd or NiMH. However, they do contain battery meter chips that measure charge and discharge currents and try to report a remaining battery life based on that. These meter chips can get confused or out of sync with the actual battery state, so fully discharging (to shutoff) then giving a full charge essentially recalibrates the meter chip.

    Here are my findings after about 7 hours,
    Battery life not as good
    Signal not near as good
    App memory from 40.5 after 3 60 sec. battery pulls to 15.5 now (.122 much better) may retest without Viigo
    Browser faster
    Camera much faster on taking a picture, but still slow on cycling to save or delete.
    MMS and attachments all good
    Phone all good 1 dropped call so far, from black screen laying flat to picking it up, just went to home screen. (Ha kinda reminded me of .75)
    accelerometer not so great, lots of clock time the first few hours that seems to be all but gone
    Typing great, just loving the speed
    Cut and paste also still great
    I think it's a big step in the right direction and i'm not not liking it
    I think i'll give it a week.... oh wait at the rate of os' and hybrids coming out i most likly wont have it a week.... HA!

    I think it's kinda amazing how the same phone for different people run so differently
