    hi jus t got my eris last week dont understand why battery life is so short. standby is only a few hours and if i use it is a lot less. i tried son=me fixes that turn off features and lowered the brightness but they dont help much. i dont understand that this mini computer/phone is designed with features you cant use because the battery cant sustain its use. if there is no fix for this i will return it. i play golf and use one of the gps apps for golf courses yet the most i can get from it is about6 or 7 holes before it dies. i have a portable battery charger that runs on a aa battery and that is sucked dry quickly also. i would appreciate some help

    There is a lot that can effect battery usage. Be sure that you don't have a ton of running apps in the background. Things like GPS always updating and emailing always syncing can greatly affect your battery power.
