    I unplugged G2x at full charge and went to bed at 2am. Woke up 8am finding out the phone has 15% left. Also, I noticed the phone drained quickly for regular browsing with or without WIFI. It also takes a long time to get full charge. Recently, the scrolling and mp3 playback becomes stuttered.

    Reset the phone and it returns to normal. Not happy with this phone.

    There's no way the phone should drain that quickly when not used, something running in the background must be draining it, it's just a matter of finding what. Check the refresh interval of your mail or anything else that is configured to auto-refresh, and check for any apps you've installed that may be running (there are poorly written android apps that will drain any phone they're installed on).

    Didn't bother checking it. I only have Gmail and I turned off auto sync too. Anyway, I reset the phone and it runs normal now.

    Before, when I activate WIFI hotspot. Even with USb charging it won't keep up with the battery drained. It was horrible.

    This is already my second G2x. I lost faith in LG.

    I already traded the G2x with Sensation. G2x is the buggiest android phones I have ever used.

    I have to agree with you and the main reason I returned mine was the horrible battery life. Check out my one month experience with the G2x here.
