Good deal, but my backups feel just as slow. Sad

It's too early to tell about the better battery life. I have my fingers crossed though.

I like having the Genius playlists, but everything else seems about the same to me.

My iPhone feels somewhat faster, but I don't notice much of a difference with backup speeds. I haven't had a chance to roam around, so I can't comment on the rest of the stuff. I did notice they changed the 3G icon. At this point, I'm just hoping the battery life claim is true.

I really don't see any improvement at all! In fact, I'm getting more dropped calls now than ever before.
