I was checking out the specs of a few of the phones coming out and I noticed something about the Motorola Droid Pro that I have to admit I am a little jealous of... it comes stock with an 1860 mAh battery. Now then, here is a phone with a 3.7 inch display with a stock battery as big as my extended battery... THANK YOU Motorola, not that I'm switching over to a Droid Pro or anything, but I appreciate this train of thought. Give the customer more unplug time with their phone, what a novel idea. Of course this phone is supposed to entice a lot of RIM lovers to jump over to Android, so indeed it had better have good battery life... after all that is one of Blackberry's strong points. Now contrast that with the specs of the HTC Desire HD... here is a 4.3 inch screen smartphone coming out with a 1230 mAh battery? WTF??? Where is the logic in that HTC? I don't give a damn what number they throw at us for 'talk-time', all of us DX owners know that talking on this phone does not kill the battery. Playing around on that huge screen is what kills the battery. Their decision to put such a small battery in such a large phone astounds me. I personally feel like Motorola should have shipped the DX with the extended battery instead of the 1540 mAh battery that came with it. I can't even imagine this phone with a 1230 mAh battery powering it! And I'm well aware that different phones can be more efficient than others and we haven't seen what the numbers look like with the Desire HD yet. But that doesn't really matter IMO. They could have easily developed this phone with at least a 1540 mAh battery if not something more along the lines of the 1860 the Droid Pro is getting. So even if the phone gets 'decent' battery life out of the 1230 mAh it's coming with, they could have easily given their customers 50% more performance. Their decision not to, IMO just shows that they don't care. This disappointed me because I'm looking for alternatives to Motorola when I get my next phone and I really want to like HTC. But I've heard a lot of negative things about the Dinc and the EVO, and then I saw that and I just thought, "are you kidding me"??? Well I'm the kind of guy that gives credit where credit is due. So as much as I feel like you've done wrong as of late Motorola, I have to give you kudos on this point. Throwing a bigger battery in a phone with a smaller screen than the DX is a really good move IMO... a move I would like to see more OEM's making. Bravo.
