    Just wondering what kind of battery life to expect while browsing the web. Looks like I lose 10% every 20minutes is this about right? This is my third droid I never really noticed on the others but didn't pay attention either. If this isn't normal is it the phone or the battery. I leave brightness all they down wifi off gps off ect...


    Imput please

    10% in 20 minutes seems like a LOT. I don't browse the web non-stop, but I'm on there my fair share. From what I can tell, listening to music, making phone calls, and even using some other apps drains battery faster than browsing the web. It seems like your battery is dropping way more quickly than it should. Does your phone have 2.0.1?

    The only way you could determine that would be by replacing the battery with another one and comparing the life with equal usage. I'm inclined to say it's the battery and not the phone, but who knows, it's just a feeling.

    agreed...


    there is an app out there that gives you more info on battery usage... some kinda tool or toy(brain fart)... maybe check out some usage apps and see what is actually draining the battery. the built in one can be a little vague.
