Hi, this is my first smartphone to actually own. I am upgrading from a flip phone. I just got this phone yesterday. I talked for about 2-3 hours last night and the phone ate up about 46% battery life. Does this sound about right? I don't have anything to compare it to other than something like the Apple site claiming the iPhone 4 had something like 7 hours of talk time. That seems to make this phone worse to comparable. EDIT: The Samsung site claims 8 hours of talk time, which they define as, "Amount of time available in Talk mode in which a phone's display are active." I assume that means with the display running. Last night, I did not use the display much while talking and let it cut itself off. I don't think I even talked for 3 hours, it was probably more like 2.5. I am just on the edge with this phone. I'm not sure if I like it or not. I'm not getting good reception on the phone at my house. I never have really, but my flip phone got at least 3 bars. This one is giving me 1-2 bars constantly, maybe 3 if I'm super lucky. On top of that, while I was talking last night, the person on the other end was having difficulty hearing me. I thought this might be a reception issue, but when I moved my mouth closer to the mic, they could hear me better. This required me to move my ear away from the speaker, though. I ended up switching to the supplied headset to see if that made it any better and it did. This seems to indicate that the microphone or something on the phone isn't very good. Other than some nitpicky things, I like the phone overall, but these seem like really breaking issues for me and I'm curious to see opinions on them before I make a decision to return it or not.
