    I've had my ERIS for about a month now and love the phone, but my charge lasts no longer that a few hours (I use the browser alot, market, email, txt alot, get random calls) I have taskiller pro and am wondering if that helps at all. it seemed to only make it worse. i have to press the kill all tasks icon every 5 seconds. and i have very few applications on the phone yet it lags like hell. this only occured after a factory reset i was persuaded to do by a sexy verizon chick. any help will be apreciated. :D:D:cool:

    like i said i love this phone!!

    Read the thread that AdrianC14 posted and delete the task killer from your phone. It isn't doing anything good for you. You will thank me later.:)

    10-12 hours is good for a smartphone so don't worry. As to the lagging, stop using task killers every 5 seconds or uninstall it.

    The lag and the battery can both be traced back to the task killer. It goes against everything a windows user has been taught in life, but it really is causing you problems. Android is Linux based and designed to manage its memory on its own. There is no need for a task killer on these phones. Let go and let it run like normal for a week and you will see the difference.

    I will also suggest using the back button instead of the home button when exiting apps.

    Well regular dumbphones don't use up all the juice in a battery like a smartphone (i.e. Droid Eris) because dumbphones are not constantly pulling information from the internet and it's not powering a large display. My AT&T dumbphone also lasted about 4 days.

    You can't compare the battery life of a regular phone and a smartphone. Smartphones do so much more and require so much more power. Some people say that "conditioning" the battery (letting it die and charging fully again) helps, but lithium ion batteries aren't supposed to really need this.
