I've been a user (from an iPhone background) for 2 months... Battery last a half day on my average usage - even shutting down WiFi and Bluetooth (in my usage scheme of things, this thing lasts around 60% what the iPhone 3G does (may be an overstatement). I understand everything isn't perfect - but the iPhone (IMHO) has semi-poor battery performance. This thing is way under that... I now must keep an extra charged battery with me - and make sure I have chargers in any car I'm in, and various home outlets. I can't be the only one??? Do I have a faulty Slide (I don't think so). If my Slide if semi-OK - I don't get having to run multiple batteries (or making sure you are *plugged in* often)... ????????????????
