I am eagerly awaiting the friendly fed-ex man to deliver my new DROID. Do I have to initially charge it for X number of hours before I play?
Take into account that its always better to let the battery drain completely before charging. Doing this can prolong the life of the battery cells. So the answer is No, you dont have to charge it...power it on and use it until its about to die and then charge it fully.
Thanks to new technology there is something they call "charging intelligence". Wich means u dont have to switch or phone on, play it empty, recharge it full and so on if u got it new.... just play wif it and recharge whenever u want!
The best advice is to charge for five to seven hours before using the Droid.
