OK, here's the deal: I've been a Droid user since day one and consider myself an educated user of Droid phones. I've rooted phones in the past and over clocked the CPU, I'm familiar with all the tips and tricks to keep a Droid running, BUT...here's my gripe. Why can't the $%#$#!! battery make it through the day with minimal use??
I use Fast Reboot and Advanced Task Killer to constantly kill apps, my email polling is once an hour, and screen brightness is 40%. The problem is the damn apps just re-start and suck the battery life right out. I rarely use my phone, yet the moment I do I can literally watch the battery meter go down. And before you say I have a bad battery, EVERY Droid phone has been like this. I literally use my phone for calendar appts, phone calls and text messages. In my opinion it's all the running processes that kill the battery and heat up the phone.
And while I'm ranting, why can't an app just "shut down". For example, if I'm in Chrome looking at a website and I've gone several links deep into the page, I can't just kill the browser to exit...I have to press Back, Back, Back, Back, until I'm out (or just kill it via ATK).
I love the customization of the Droid OS, but honestly, I'm so fed up with the battery issues and what appears to be a form of "Win-rot" (Droid-rot) in the OS that I'm ready to get an iPhone (I have an iPad and my daughter has an iPhone...so far I'm happy with the battery performance and how quickly the camera launches, unlike my POS Droid Razr).
