Major update for DROID DNA now live
A couple days ago we let you know that there was a major update for the HTC DROID DNA in the works, and word has come out that the update has just gone live. The update adds quite a lot of bug fixes and improvements, but it doesn't add any new features to really get excited about, because it doesn't bring users up to Android 4.2. 

The update will bring your device to build 2.04.605.2 and includes improvements to WiFi connectivity, Bluetooth connectivity, Hotspot connectivity, audio quality over wired headsets and earpieces, and a number of other improvements. 

The update is available OTA right now, but it is pretty beefy at just over 100MB, so it's probably best that you download it over WiFi and save your data plan.

Typical HTC. Release with buggy software just to be the first and take this long to fix the issues. Never again HTC.

No they haven't from my experience. Samsung has a ton of updates for their phones but they are usually just very minor stability updates. Nothing close to anything like these issues with the DNA, or the notification and WiFi issue of the One X, and the random reboot issue of the 8x. See a pattern here? Yes HTC sucks.

Did you ever have a the early Fascinate or Charge? Samsung has improved vastly with its software response and release times but when touchwiz came out it was horrible and they took forever to fix it.

Nope, didn't own one until the GS2, which smoked the Sensation in every category.

HEH... you do realise that Sensation is the better performer of the two? It wasn't at the beginning though, but HTC updated the hell out of it it and it surpassed GS2 quite soon.

HTC One will be out soon I would expect this to be the last major update for the Droid DNA. HTC logic = new phone out never update the older ones.

Hate to tell you but the Verizon Galaxy Nexus has hit its EOL (end of life) as per Verizon so it will not be getting Android 4.2.

Referance story at here at Phonearena.com.

eol just means they wont sell it anymore. It doesnt affect software upgrades and adjustments. It all really depends on the required specs for 4.2 and whether the manufacture wants to bother with it.

Yes that means they wont sell it any more. But verizon also has the say as to when the phones on thier network get upgraded software. EOL means that VZW will not be doing the vetting process for the software on phone so thus the phone wont get any more software upgrades.

Ok, so since the update, both my wife and I's phones have less battery power. This update has managed to drain our batteries much faster then before. I used to go 2 days on one charge, now I'm lucky to get a day and a half. What the heck?!
