I left the house today at 100% to take my twin 8 year olds out for Saturday fun.
I had to drop my son off at a birthday party (go kart racing) and then I took my daughter to Dave and Busters.
By the way I went from places where I barely got 3g to getting 4g without a problem and back.
In order to get there I used the display and Navigation for about 1 1/2 hours. Using Navigation made my cars built in Nav system look like a toy. I spoke where I wanted to go by address first and it got my straight there. Only complaint is it's not very loud. However the directions were perfect. When going from there to Dave & Busters I just said Dave & Busters and it took me straight there. Then I used it to get back to my son and then home.
I also used the phone to text, check mail, etc.. while out.
At dinner I had it on playing with live wallpapers for my daughter - she found the Beautiful Live Weather which I had never seen and now it's my wallpaper - it's fantastic. The blades of grass move, the sun and moon move according to day and the weather changes and you can pop the clouds by touching them.
Then I went to pick my son up and the party was still going - I took about 10 pictures - and yeah it was slow and blurry for some, I will be looking for a better picture app.
It was my sons turn to race the carts so I decided to use the high def video for the first time ever. I was ASTOUNDED! The zoom was easy to use and when I finished the 40 minutes of video the battery was down to about 30%. Then I played the video and a bunch of kids surrounded me - the quality was unbelievable. For as hard as the camera is to use the video is easy, self focusing and the color and detail is stunning!
No way I could do any of the above with my OG droid. So generally I am happy with the battery life. I did find when it got under 30% it dropped faster than I expected.
Now I need to find where to find the video's I took so I can move them to my computer... I can't seem to do it and it's driving me nuts.
