Battery issue reason enough to pass on DG2?
Hello Droid community!
My wife and I are looking to move up to our first smart phones. I like the DX, she prefers the DG2 because of the slide out physical key board. Verizon has a BOGO deal right now that would get us both phones for $150 (with my nu every 2). Plus the smart phones talk free promotion.
After reading all the reviews I am concerned that the battery life on the Global may be a deal breaker. My wife is not one for playing with settings and tinkering with her phone. She is a heavy texter along with a few calls a day. The smart phone would let her surf the web a bit, check her email etc. What is a realistic expectation of battery life under this useage profile? Will it make it from 7am till 10 or 11pm? We are OK with charging every night, but not interested in rooting or modding the phone while it is under warranty.
Would the larger capacity optional battery work?
The DX doesn't seem to get near the criticism for its battery life, though I know it barely makes it through the day with average use.
