    Grey means its on
    Green means its active

    Loving the update, runs quite a bit smoother, no battery difference as far as I can tell.

    Thanks Fury for explaining the color. I must have a rogue app installed that is sucking the battery life which I will check into later today.

    Yeah why? I'm not on my phone 24/7
    I didn't know that was possible without rooting.
    Usually i even go longer without recharging it.Its because after installing GB i was playing around with the phone a bit more.
    I believe its the APPS that drains the battery faster.If you are always playing games.

    So far other the color changes I have notice that moving apps to SD is MUCH MUCH better (as someone else reported).
    Asus Transformer & Dock - Stock OS
    NookColor - Not Rooted - Running CM7 on mSD
    AT&T Nexus One - Not Rooted
    SquareTrade Warranty - Purchased
    Case-Mate Tough Case + Screen Protector
    Wave Secure + Lookout

    I'm also quite pleased with it. I love the sleep animation, and new notification bar, as well as the additional free memory. All in all, I think it's a gain, not a wash. Yay, Google.

    The soft touch buttons seem more responsive on 2.3.3, the visual refresh is nice, and more free memory is an obvious plus.

    Definitely a worthwhile update from my perspective.

    I just recharged my phone for the second time since installing GB last night. So at 9pm its was at 100% and this morning after 10 hours on standby i just checked my phone status and the battery is at 98%.
    So the battery on GB is fine.

    Not all of us have a hard time putting our phone down during the course of the day. I do (have a hard time putting it down), but... I'm just saying.

    Try not using your phone for a day or two and see how long the battery lasts. I dare you (with GPS, etc. off, of course)

    P.S. There's no way I could follow through with the above dare . It's nice having a fun phone
