With all the battery issues the ERIS has had I thought I needed to make this post. I have had the ERIS for 5 days now. I had awful battery at first doing very little. The first day it lasted 4 hrs. I am happy to report that I took my phone off charge this AM at 8:00am EST. I had a normal day texting and emailing with a few short phone calls (not a big talker). I listened to 14 songs and played 2 full 90 min movies. At 11:31pm EST my battery just died. Give it time... the battery life gets better. If I can get 15.5 hrs out of the battery with my use, I am stoked! This just made the best phone out better!
