I love the Eris, but the battery life sucks. I had an LG Dare before which suited me fine other than the crappy web surfing. The battery lasted forever. Heck, I had the phone turned on, but wasn't using it for two weeks after I had my Eris activated. I had it in the console of my car. I bumped it and it still had half a battery left. I had charged the Eris at work and charged it full-came home and put it on my nightstand and it the battery was nearly drained. I know some people have given tips on saving batteries, but it defeats the point of a smartphone. I do not want to have to worry about the charge on my phone. To me the artificial intelligence on the Eris makes it a relatively dumb phone. If the phone is not being used for more than 10 minutes and is sitting idle, it should automatically turn the networks off and then switch them back on if it is picked back up. I shouldn't have to think about turning things off which are obvious to save the battery. It is a pain in the ass. I may get the Omnia 2 or the Passion if it is out within the next week or two-also have been considering Storm 2. I just need something to surf the news on the way home, updated FB and send text messages, If it was not f or the Eris poor battery life, I would keep the phone or if they update the software to conserve battery or if I could buy a new battery. It is too much of a pain to keep.
