I've owned the Droid for 3 weeks now, had my 1st hiccup yesterday, would love to hear some of your thoughts.
So I activated GPS to get to work for just the 2nd time (detour). I am 99.9% sure I exited out of navigation mode upon arriving at my destination. There was no GPS icon and I exited out of Maps to the home screen.
5 hours later, I had barely touched my phone thanks to a miserably busy work day.
I went down to the cafeteria, sent a text to a co-worker about grabbing lunch, I am 90% sure I still had a full green bar of battery.
30 minutes into the lunch, I noticed my phone was blinking with a red LED. I thought this was odd since I had never seen a red LED notification before. I unlocked the phone and saw it only had 5% juice left and was about to shut off. So I preemptively shut it off myself just in case I needed the phone on my return commute home.
7 hours later, the phone was still off, my day was done. I got back to the car, I yanked the battery out, reseated it, and then plugged it into the car charger I had recently purchased.
The readout? My phone was fully charged.
What gives? Was there a faulty connection initially so that the battery meter wasn't picking up a correct charge?
How could a phone go from 5% charge to 100% charge with the only change being reseating the battery and having the phone off (and not charging obviously) for 7 hours?
I ask because this is the 1st time I've had this issue. Was really spooked and curious. Thanks for the help.
