I love the phone... I love the operating system... I love the Sense UI... I love the look and the feel of it.. but I freakin HATE the stupid battery issues. The most frustrating thing, in my opinion, is the inconsistency... One day, I'll have decent battery life where it'll be noon and I'll still have more than 70% left with moderate use. On those days, the battery lasts me all day and unless I intentionally drain it when I get home, all the way through when I go to bed. Other days (like today), the phone will be dead before I leave work. For example, this morning I took the phone off the charger at 7:10 a.m. (after charging all night), on my way out the door. It's now 8:07 a.m., I made one eight minute phone call and I'm down to 83%. That is absolute B.S. I've read all the battery-related threads on all these forums so I know all the issues... My awake time is only 25%. I already downloaded Hancent SMS. I had been using Advanced Task Killer but uninstalled it when I read that that could cause problems. I have everything (except mobile network) turned off. WTH? I love this phone but I hate the fact that I have to babysit the thing all day and make sure that nothing is eating up my battery in case I actually need to make a phone call later in the day. If a permanent solution that doesn't require me to constantly monitor awake time and all that B.S. isn't found soon, I'll be heading back to Verizon to get my money back.
