I bought my wife an Eris last week and she likes it. Battery life has been fine so far, but I have one concern. Last night before I went to bed, I checked "awake time," and it was about 6 hours (uptime was about 14 or 15). The 6 hours may have been a little bit high, but it was probably about right. This morning as soon as I woke up I checked awake time again, and it was at 14.5 hours. So it had been "awake" literally all night. I killed extraneous tasks before I went to bed, but here's what I've got installed: Pure Calender* Gmail Unread Count* Audio Manager* OpenTable Shazam Movies by Flixster Astro Google Voice My Tracks DropBox BatteryLife widget by CurveFish* The ones with * were the only ones running when we went to bed (I have those excluded from my task killer). This morning, I killed "Messages" because I read that the stock SMS app can cause the phone to stay awake, but "awake" time continues to increase despite the phone appearing to be asleep. Thoughts? A couple other things: we used my tracks yesterday, but turned off the GPS and killed the app when we were finished using it. And she played Teeter for like 20 minutes a little while before we went to bed.
