    Quit complaining about battery!

    In almost every single thread on here someone brings up or eventually says they have terrible battery life or they are unhappy.

    Go buy an extended battery. Yes they are 50 dollars and we should have gotten them to begin with for free but I'd rather spend 50 then pay retail for a new phone which would be your other option.

    Truthfully this is a good phone with the extended battery, I can't really complain about anything major that would make me get rid of this phone.

    Unfortunately the price we pay for carrying around basically a small computer in our pockets is bad battery life. I'm sure battery technology will improve greatly soon enough. If you want good battery life then go back to a flip phone lol. I'm perfectly fine sacrificing battery life for all the awesome stuff I can do with my smartphone now compared to my old flip phone from back in the day that could go almost a week without needing a charge.

    Actually before the gingerbread ota battery life was horrific even for HTC devices, who are known to have poor battery life. The evo had the same issue and then when they updated it to gingerbread they saw a huge improvement. So I am not surprised about tbolt improvement in battery life with gingerbread. But the extended battery is a big helper with providing more battery life.

    I wasn't smashing gb its just all the time people complain about the battery and how they hate it. My battery use to not make it through the day but with the extended my phone easily goes all day and I still usually have 50 percent or more. I'm just trying to show how much better this phone is with the bigger battery and that if u hate your battery life you should buy the extended battery

    I bought an oem battery on amazon for less than 10 bucks and a wall charger for batteries for another 5. Well worth it.

    Let's say you buy a brand-new car that's advertised to get 20mpg highway; however, when you get it home, you're getting less that half that, with no obvious cause that you can discern. Let's say you take it back to the dealer, being that it's under warranty, and he offers to sell you an external fuel tank that mounts to the roof of your car. For a variety of reasons, you would probably be dissatisfied with that solution.

    Shorter-than-advertised battery life is OK with lots of people. And a $50 extended battery that makes the phone look like it has a goiter is OK with others. But some people, myself included, seem to believe that the phone should work as advertised, and that we should be able to get through a workday without having to recharge. That is not an unreasonable position.

    They never said how much battery life you would get out of this phone, what I heard was improved battery life and larger battery.
