aight...how's everybody's battery doing after a normal monday workday? i think everyone will have improved battery life when they get into their regular routines and stop playing with their phones continuously. here's how mine did today...i got a spare battery (eris) at the verizon store yesterday and popped it in...ran it down to 9% and put the charge to it. i left it on the charge till well past full charge then unplugged it and plugged it in again by my bed. today i would consider my use moderate...after 12 hrs i still have 35% left on my battery...that includes an hour and a half of pandora at the gym.so i would say that i'm getting great battery life and this new battery isn't even close to being conditioned yet. few of my settings: full brightness...i don't care for the auto brightness setting screen timeout 1 min weather update... sense every hr... weatherbug every 15 min facebook and twitter refresh every hour no bluetooth or wifi of course....data always on as i've always said ....the best way to improve battery life is to slip a spare into your front left pocket.
