Default Who else has got this phone?

Took delivery last week from Expansys. Very pleased with it as an upgrade from my old HTC Desire. Everything works. Good build quality.

Both Sims are live to accept incoming calls.

You can select which Sim to call/SMS from at time of sending, but you can also set a default.
[If you try to use a Roaming Sim when a local one is available, it warns you politely.]

If one line is in use, you cannot use the other line. Incoming calls see a "busy" phone.

Got it yesterday. I'm wondering if there is a way to root it, I'd like to import my previous mobile apps backups with Titanuim...

The battery amperage seems to be really too low for this phone.
With a moderate usage it lasts just 6-7 hours.
Does anyone know if there are bigger capacity batteries for this phone?

Well, it strongly depends on the usage. After my 2nd charging (I've got the device 2 weeks ago) I used it for 5 days, having 15% remaining -but - data connections on demand - no push-mail - no GPS-based services - "flight mode" at night So, I can't believe just 6-7 hours with MODERATE USAGE...what did you do? Watching videos for 6-7 hours? Regards, d.a.

I have to agree with frakie I love this phone apart from 1 thing. The battery life!
I'm finding it can barely make it to 12 hours, with a max of say 30 mins within that spent on wifi or 3G. Also, when plugged into USB charging off a laptop or car socket it seems very slow to take a charge - so it's virtually impossible to keep it topped up on the go.

A great, but rather UNmobile mobile.

Anybody got any tips to improve the battery life? I've never had one so bad before. Just came on here searching trying to figure out if there's actually something wrong with it and worth contacting expansys!

It is something wrong with your device, indeed. Here's my current "record" in battery life: after using it for exactly 6 days without charging (ok, only standby, a few sms, scheduling and working with todo-list) there were 15% of capacity. Then I streamed a youtube video via WiFi for one hour. After that, I've got 4% capacity remaining. I know, I'm not a typical smartphone user, but I really can't believe that you can only use it for 12 hours with half an hour WiFi. Regards, d.a.

Out of interest, are you using both sim slots?
I've got 2 sims in, most of the battery use is reported as going on "mobile standby" and "phone idle". I'm wondering if running 2 sims uses disproportionately more battery than 1.

Regularly, I do. (In case of on-call duty, I operate only with one sim - the business sim - during the nights. > I've got 2 sims in, most of the battery use is reported as

Same thing on my phone. > I'm wondering if running 2 sims uses disproportionately more

It depends on. In case of staying at home, I don't feel any relevant difference. I case of fast moving (train, car), I feel it uses a lot more. Regards, d.a.

Did anyone else get a system update on the phone in the last week or so. I did but can't see any differences.

I have Acer Liquid metal but in just one year, the display has got many dead pixels (yeah it fell off by mistake, although it was in the carry case, but still :/).

I originally thought to buy this phone but now I'm waiting for Samsung Galaxy S4 to be released

Cool

After reading all the reviews I could find I plan on purchasing the Gallant Duo shortly. I currently use a Moto EX128 primarily for it dual active SIM capability which I use in the US and globally. Based on the reviews the Duo looks like it will do everything I need. How have other users found it to perform on ATT networks in the US?

I wanted to welcome you to Android Forums. I hope if you decide on the Gallant Duo that it serves you well. Thanks for using these forums.

Thank you for the welcome @olbriar! Actually I ended up getting the Samsung Galaxy Siii and have been extremely pleased with it. I decided to have the second line ring to the Samsung rather than go with a dual SIM at this time.

Hello Martin. Welcome to Android Forums. I don't use your phone but perhaps I can help. To add a widget just long press an empty spot on one of your screens where you want it. A menu should appear and add a widget should be one of the options.
Once you click that you will be taken to a list of widgets to choose from. Tick the one you want and viola. Removing a widget is just as easy. If you long press a widget you have that you want to remove it should become highlighted in some fashion and a trashcan should appear somewhere on your screen. Without letting up on the widget... drag it off to the trash and then let go... bingo. I hope this helps. Have fun and thanks for joining these forums.
