I bought an Eris on day 1. I liked the phone, but I hated the battery life so I returned it and got my old Dare turned back on. I have read where the Motorola Droid has a slightly better battery life. Also, I have found other applications which can help manage the power usage. I had used task killers to try to save the battery on the Eris, but I didn't know there were possibly better applications.. If I got the Droid and didn't like it (what is concerning me is the camera, but that might be fixed), could I take that phone back as well? I really want a smart phone and want to stay with Verizon, but I want to make sure I am not stuck with someone I don't like. If they fix the camera on December 11th with the update then I will definitely keep the Droid.
