This is a great phone functionally, but my experience has been that the weak battery life overshadows the phones good points. I know its been out only a coupla days and it takes time to break a battery in, but this has become a major obstacle to really enjoying this phone. I have killed gps, many email syncs, haptic feedback, weather syncs, stock quotes checks, lowered the display brightness, killed vibrate for alerts, other things also, but running it from 9 am to about 1 pm with just minimal to moderate use, no videos, just email, a few texts, 5-6 phone calls, about 20 webpages, and this thing is down to 40%. No way would it make it till 5 pm or longer. I feel this is just totally unacceptable and don't want to spend the money, nor want the extra bulk and extra weight that an extended battery would add. Hate to do it, but I think its going back. Reminds me of the Incredible last summer with the battery problems it had. I'll give it another day or two, but don't really think it will improve. Just my 2 cents.
