    Some interesting observations on my 2nd X phone

    I'm on my 2nd X, 3rd battery.

    First phone, first battery ordered the night they became available. Phone arrived, battery life was terrible (4-5 hours max, nothing odd running on it). Called Verizon, they sent a 2nd battery. This one worked better and would require charging every 24 hours. I assume this is normal and am happy. Then my ringer/speaker stopped working, back the phone (my wifes Droid) to Verizon.
    We try various incantations/resets/voodoo stuff and they tell me they're sending me a new phone - in two days!
    Almost a month goes by and my new phone arrives - it's really new and has a battery/charger/etc with it. I'm apprehensive about using a new battery, given my experiences with the first battery but I charge it and activate the phone. I download the apps I had on the original phone immediately, and set up the phone EXACXTLY the same as the original (I'd written down all the settings so I could get it right). This phone and new battery has been running 24 hours and the battery is still at 70% - I've done my usual daily stuff with it, taken/made calls, did email, some browsing, etc.
    It's clear to me not all X's are created equal.

    lol...its the same thing for any product. There will be some duds in there. Whenever I here ppl say their battery life is bad on the X, I recommend they try a new X.

    The next few batches might have less duds. But by then...newer phones will be out. Glad to see your battery life problem is gone.

    24 hours and still at 70%???

    You didn't use your phone that much if even at all during that 24 hours. You say you do your usual stuff. I'm guessing you may have made 2 or 3 phone calls?

    I have the extended battery, and I have about 10% left on it at the end of day. I take the phone off the charger every morning after I get up.


    I do actually use my phone though

    I made 8 calls, and got 5 yesterday. Did email and some browsing while getting coffee and ran bluetooth all day. Today I've only gotten 4, made 2 - one of the calls I took lasted over 10 mins.

    I use this phone quite a bit. I'm 4 hours away from 48 hours on the same charge, and I've got 50% left according to the "about phone" "status". I don't know - nor do I care what you do with your phone.

    This phone is a keeper. I don't know what they changed, I can't compare the battery p/n's with the old since I Fed-Ex'd it off yesterday.

    That's a bad thing to put into peoples heads, of course there are duds, but battery life is reletive to the monkey toying with the phone. With my experience people often exagerate how their phone actually performs and often expect much more than what the device is capable of. So if you tell Johnny face to get his phone exchanged because he says his battery doesn't last long, the next time he kills his battery by jamming to Coldplay on pandora for a few hours while using his google nav he will remember what you have said and compare the battery life to his lg-vx3200 and march into the nearest store to hassle someone.

    With all that said, im a pretty more than average user, and I charge my phone every day. But It's a smartphone, so I expect that I will have to charge it more depending on my use.

    Wtf? Are you serious? Phone calls must be all you do.

    I was using the nav and music over bluetooth to my car while making calls texts and emails. The screen was at 100% brightness cause it was so sunny today. I was proud of my phone, it held up well to its first real challenge.

    But what you're saying is a fairy tale.

    I hope to be getting my X in 2 weeks. I have the D2 now and I am just not happy with the weight. I like the keyboard but it is heavy.
