I know that there are a bunch of threads her that talk about battery life. But it's hard to get a real estimate of what average is just by looking through the threads. I love my Droid and I am having zero problems with it. However, I think my battery is lacking. I'd rather not replace it (because I already put a phantomskin on it) but if I think I can get significantly better life, I have to try. After reading the thread about factory resetting, I'm even closer to pulling the trigger. To be able to get back all of my apps and contacts almost instantly after replacing a phone, makes the decision a lot easier if it comes down to it.. Anyways, since I got my phone the battery hasn't been that great, not too bad. The first couple days having it were pretty terrible. But I hadn't calibrated my battery really because I was too eager to use it. Then I decided to let my batter drain and then charge back up completely. I did this a few times and battery life definately improved. Still it's not amazing. I have never had a smartphone before so I don't really know what battery life is supposed to be like. And honestly I probably would just get used to and accept the battery life I have been getting if it hadn't been for people on the board saying they are getting a day and a half out of their phones. I have been getting about 5-7 hours of moderate/heavy usage. It's only been a week so obviously I'm constantly playing on it. I use a lot of gTalk, browser, and market. Some phone calls, some youtube, some pandora. Not really a lot of power intensive apps. I have facebook updating every hour or so, weather widget updating every 3 hours or so. GPS off, Wifi off unless I'm at home, and screen on the lowest brightness and quickest auto off. The longest I've ever seen it make it was about 12 hours and that was when I was barely using it. I was gonna just take it as is because I felt at least I didn't get one that restarts and force closes all the time and my camera has always been pretty good.. But today I took my phone in to work at 90% at 9am. And I was using it really hard. I was browsing, messing around with picsay and then I was playing sonic. AND IT DIED BEFORE 12!!! I know I was using it heavily but that is just unacceptable. I've done everything I can to keep track of and improve my battery. I have Advanced Task Killer Pro and spare parts. I don't think I have a leak anywhere. Just a crappy battery. So should I just go try a brand new one?? I just did a factory reset on my phone to test out the recovery, and see if maybe that helps my battery. I'd like to finally get some numbers on what their average battery life is before I demand a new phone.
