Default I got one...

Long story short I was raving about the Galaxy Note for like six months and really wanted one and was going to preorder it today, but between funds, and a wife that is screaming about her (actually my old one since she broke hers)Iphone not working right she wanted a new phone. I rode up to att yesterday and picked up a nitro hd and quite impressed except for the fact the battery life sux ballz and there are no extended batteries on the market. I emailed mugen and seidio about one and if things arent looking good by the time the note is on display at att I might have to go take a look at it. Why do companies aim for being thin, who gives a shit, HEY LG and every other company that makes smartphones... frakkin wake up, most Top notch Android device users are heavy abusers of their phone and need that big battery. WTF. I dont want a piece of paper to put in my pocket that can only make one call two texts and have a standby for 30 minutes.(its not that bad but damn). you know what I mean. besides being thin is just that more vulnerable to snapping like a graham cracker.
I hope i didnt make a mistake

I've read that the LG Nitro's battery definitely improves over time, say about 1 or 2 months. You might also want to try rooting and debloating, and disabling lte to extend battery life.

Loving mine. I find the battery lasts me all day easily. I turn it off and charge every night.

Now, I'm not using it until 2:00 a.m. everyday (gotta work), but it easily beats my Xperia X10.

Oh, and you can uninstall most of the AT&T crap without rooting, which is a bonus.

Can you compare the Nitro's battery to the iPhone 4?

This phone EATS the battery... I do a lot of browsing though.

Edit: I can compare it to my 3GS and the nitro battery goes way faster.

i understand your frustration. frankly either the mobile manufacturers should deal with the power draining problem or battery manufactures should catch up with the increasing demand of mobiles on power......

my current solution is to use an extended battery. see if this one for nitro would work fine for you : http://www.amazon.com/QCell-Nitro-3850mAh-Extended-Battery/dp/B0071N8CI6/ref=sr_1_15?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1331001907&s r=1-15&tag=5336653508-20

I used to leave wifi off since I figured it contributed to battery loss. However, the other morning, I went off to work and forgot that I had wifi on. At the end of the day (evening) before bed, I still had half a battery left. I guess with a good wifi signal at work and at home, I save energy on emails and browsing over using the 4G LTE network.

Bottom line, for my needs (some calls, a few texts, a few pictures, some games and browsing), my phone lasts all day until I shut it off around 9:00. (I'm an old married guy, so I'm not out catting around all night like you young'uns.)

LG Nitro HD

Rate this Phone:

The LG Nitro HD is essentially the exact same phone as the LG Optimus LTE, simply enjoying a rebranding on it's way to AT&T in the United States. But Nitro HD owners may enjoy much more than just the name- on launch this phone will compete ... Read More
