    The Legend isn't a Blackberry...


    Seriously, if you have to ask, then you need to play with them both and you'll see.

    A legend because the blackberry should be provided by your employer ;)

    Hi, I noticed you have the HTC Legend(Says on your profile) and I was just wondering how good is the battery life on it? And is the camera good?
    Thanks:)

    Battery life I find very good, but then I would describe myself as a light user. Make around 20mins of calls a day, hour or so of bluetooth connectivity to my car and that's it. A full charge lasts three days before the battery gets to "amber". I'm sure it'll go another day until it reached critical.
    On the occasional day when I've got moderate use, a few of hours playing games, surfing, music player it does last at least 24hrs.
    Things like GPS and navigation really drain the battery.
    I've never had an issue with charge thinking it's unacceptable.

    Camera I find is good, well for my needs anyway. It's good for those snapshots for posting on facebook/Flickr. Not honestly looked at those pictures other then on my phone so can't really comment too much.

    Hope that helps.

    Would you happen to know if its also Mac compatible or if there's a way to sync it??
    Thanks for the help with my other question btw:)

    Haven't heard about any issues when connecting to mac.

    And about the battery life.. Martin L is definitely a VERY light user. I am kinda a hard user and if i'm bored @ uni, i get down to 30% before 5pm already. But usually it lasts for one day. I charge my phone every night. A few weeks ago i was sick and spent 4 days at home. So most of the time i was on my pc, not my phone. But sometimes played some games, texted a few times.. And it lasted for 2 days.

    If you want a better battery life, there are replacement batteries which last up to 2-3 days of hard use.

    I don't have any issues plugging it into my macbook.
    Not honestly tried using Itunes to sync music (or is that a froyo feature?), I just copy and paste the music I require onto my phone.
    As for syncing I'm using google and there's no need to attach to a computer to sync.

    Definately on my personal phone, what do you think a work provided blackberry is for :p
