Day one, what can I say I am a late bloomer and just got the phone. I won't go in to the things I like and dislike,(you all have one I am sure you can decide for yourselves).
I will note the the following. I read about the battery issues in different forums for days. I was pretty discouraged by what I read and yet being strapped to Verizon, this phone was the clear winner.
I picked up my phone from the store last night (50% charge at the time of pick up), made 2 changes, added 3 Google accounts, 1 Exchange account and played with the phone until the indicator turned orange. I plugged the phone in and awoke this morning to find my battery was still in the orange.
I was puzzled by this until I discovered my charger wasn't plugged in.
This basically means my phone sat idle for 6 hours (I don't get to sleep much) without actually losing much in the way of battery life. I charged the phone up to about 80% and have been running all day 7am-current(1:24pm) with about a 30% reduction in over all power.
The changes I made are as follow:
Under local settings
Turned off VZW Location Services
Turned off Google Location Services
Standalone GPS Services was already off.
