Anyone know if the new update supposedly coming out next week includes a software update for the battery issue?
I doubt it, unless HTC recognizes publicly that the battery needs to be fixed. I have good days and not so good days, but I can get through a whole day in any case. Just that some days of "heavy" use it can go pretty quickly. I've learned how to manage the battery efficiently and also bought 2 extras so I have spares. No worries...
Just buy this battery. Amazon.com: Seidio Innocell 1750 mAh Battery for HTC Droid Eris to Seidio Innocell 1750 mAh Battery for HTC Droid Eris/Droid Incredible: Cell Phones & Service
I last all day now.
My battery will last along time if i shut off GPS, don't let it update weather Facebook etc very frequently, and only use data when needed, not "always-on".
