Thumbs down Phone dies while charging...

So evidently you can't use the phone while it's charging without draining the battery with the stock 1 amp charger.

It's even worse if you are trying to use the GPS. Glad I wasted the money buying a car dock.

Why they would supply a charger that wont even MAINTAIN it's charge while being used is beyond me. Garbage.

Anyone find a higher amp charger that works?

Thanks!

FWIW, we have a Verizon car charger and it seems to charge evenly with the drain.

Like the battery, the stock charger sucks. I have a 1.5 amp charger that I use in the car and 5 amp (from an old Dell Streak 7) that I use in the house. The 1.5 does maintain a charge while using GPS, Bluetooth, and 4G in the car. It won't charge quickly, but at least it keeps me going.
