As for battery life, it's not the best but it's not too bad. What phone are you coming from? Also there's plenty of extended batteries out there, most don't increase the size too much.
Don't give up, we're here to help.
Thanks for the tip but I meant that the app wouldnt even open, would just close automatically no matter what I did. Installed tiny LED flash and that wouldnt even recognize the camera, the hardware was toast, got a new one and camera works fine. Ive used just about every phone all of the gen 1 windows 7 phones, high end/low end mid range android, iphone 3g, 3gs, 4,4s, blackberry curve 8530/9360 bold 9700/bold 9990...I have a problem with phones lol I switch alot. Previous phone was a iphone 4 on straight talk.
The extended batteries are nice, just can't use a case then and I don't want to risk cracking the device. I just installed JuiceDefender today(I haven't tried it since sour results on a Droid X long time ago) so well see how that goes. Like I said, the phone is a monster and its sexy but the battery and poor signal strength really make me wish I just got the 4S and be done with it. If Juice Defender helps and somehow they can improve the signal like with the Nexus S 4g after launch this walks all over the iPhone IMO the hardware(minus the lemon camera I had) is just fantastic.
