    Considering Droid, concerned about past Motorola flaw...

    Hi,
    I'm considering buying a droid, but once upon a time I swore I would never buy another Motorola phone. The reason? On my older phones, a v600 and a razr, there was no way to turn off the low battery notifications. On the v600, even when the phone was on vibrate, the low battery notification was an audio tone -- on the razr, when the phone was on vibrate OR silent, it would vibrate when the battery was low -- still really annoying.
    How does the droid notify you of low battery? And how often?

    Thanks.

    The only notification that I know about is that at 15% when you turn your screen on the lock screen will say, "Connect To Charger" or something like that. I use the application called "Missed Call" which does have a low battery reminder that you can set (I personally like to know). I don't know if one comes "out of the box" though.

    I plugged mine it this afternoon while it was at the lock screen and the screen said it was at 15% and charging. I never saw/heard/felt any notification prior to that. If there is a notification at 15% I probably just missed it. I've never seen any low battery notification.

    there are no native audible or vibe alerts for low battery on the Droid.

    .....it's not a sissy who cry's out for juice. Just says " I'm out fool" and shuts off.

    Yep, I always hated that about Motorola phones. Fortunately the Droid doesn't do any of that nonsense. You get a (silent) notification that it's at 15% charged, another at 10% and another at 5%.

    It's blessedly quiet.

    I agree with your concerns. But in previous threads I have explained why the Droid has became Motorola's exception. How so?

    Motorola was failing. They were in last place when it came to phones, especially in the smartphone field. They were far behind the likes of HTC, Samsung, etc.

    They had their backs against the wall. They needed to come out with a device that could turn their fortunes around. Instead of releasing C-/D+ products, they needed to make a statement. They came out with the Droid and ironically, for us, it came at the best time. When a person or company has their backs against the wall...that is when they are most dangerous. It was do or die for Motorola and fortunately for us..we reap the rewards of a great phone.

    It is not by chance or by coincidence that the quality of this phone is good and very strong.

    I agree.. hopefully the camera follows suit with the next firmware update.

    Yep. The notification LED on the front will blink red when you are around 5-10% I believe. Then you better hope you are by a charger because it doesn't have much life after that. Shuts down with little warning.

    Can't pull a Kramer and see how far you can go on E...low battery really means a low battery.

    If you think about it... why would you want vibrate and audible notifications for a low battery on this device? It's already got a short battery life.... when it gets down to 15% or so 'vibrating' and 'notifying' would just eat away at the precious battery left.

    Just a thought...
