    The extended battery is great and the battery cover is barely noticeable. It was well worth the $50.

    You will think so too, I am sure.

    I owned a d2g for about a week before switching to the X. I was concerned about transitioning to a software keyboard after using an original droid for about a year. I quickly got use to the sw kb and now prefer it(especially swype). I thought the kb on the d2g was poorly layed out anyway...

    Long story short - I LOVE the screen and the dx in general and have never looked back.

    P.S. The battery on my d2g was a complete joke.

    and I agree with hook. every phone may/may not have battery issues. I believe like any new phones out there, you just have put high usage to it and sort of drain the battery down just to give it some kick.
    there are apps out there that may help, like JuiceDefender. it works for me by customizing it to fit my needs. im getting anywhere between 15-22 hours before charging. i check emails, both personal and business, i have documents i work on, surf the net, etc or like others, get the extended battery.
    good luck in your findings though...

    Battery issue is the number 1 topic in this forum on every smart phone we cover. I've seen a lot of hypothesis about how to improve battery life, and quite honestly those are more of a placebo then anything else.

    So please don't let the battery keep you from getting a D2G. It's no better or worst then any other android phone.
