    1. Battery - this has been discussed a lot so i'll get it out of the way. Woke up yesterday around 7 am, phone was dead by 10 am. No calls, no testing, was just listening to a little outcast and talking to someone over aim. Gonna have to keep a charger at every place ill possibly be at. I've easily fully charged it over 10 times by now so I guess this is the full potential.

    2. Lag. Never expected to have this issue but way too often does the phone lag behind, especially when typing. I've also had apps completely lag out. The Droid almost seemed faster at times.

    3. Other random stuff... volume went half as loud randomly until I rebooted. A couple days ago my phone would not lock, I checked in settings and everything was set correctly, a reboot didnt fix it. Phone wouldn't lock again until the next morning after it had charged all night. A lot of sense elements don't work very well.. the autocorrect while typing seemingly stops working at random. Also when svrolling (example of auto correct not working, lol) the "zoom bar" will pop up on a part of text that my finger is nowhere near, interrupting my scrolling.

    There's some other issues i can't think of at the momemt.. I'm not posting to whine or complain, I still like the phone, just wondering if anyone else is having these random issues.

    Those are not "normal" little glitches. I would exchange the phone for a new unit.

    may not be a bad idea, i don't have any of the problems you described and i have been using it pretty heavily since last thursday. i pound away on the phone with txt, email and websurfing most of the day with about 2hrs worth of calls (everything but gps,wifi and bluetooth on). i unplugged it at 6am yesterday, at 8pm i had 43% battery left. now i played a game at 8pm till 9pm and was down to 23% after that so the battery can take my normal day. that being said i am seriously considering that seido 1750Mah battery everyone is talking about. an extra 10 or 15% on the battery at the end of the day would give me a warm fuzzy in case i ever need to use the phone alot more than i do in an average day.

    Wait a minute before you replace it: What apps have you installed?

    Not many will argue #1 with you but #2 and #3 seem odd. Haven't heard of anyone else having those problems.

    Not many will argue 3 hours of battery life without even using the phone? I dont agree with that.

    I would try uninstalling your apps in reverse order, and then a factory reset before exchanging the phone. Either way, none of those are normal behavior.

    Good luck.

    I have not seen any of those issues with mine. This device has lived up to its name for me so far. Sounds like you should take it in to a Verizon store and show them all the issues you are having.
