    Welcome to the forum.
    You came to the right place for help.
    As far as battery problems with smart phones, they don't get the best battery life in general, you should expect to have to charge it at least once a day.
    How often are you using your phone? This might give us some insight as to any problems there might be.
    After heavy usage for about 5 hours on my Droid X I have to charge it.
    Enjoy your stay with us.

    to the forum Gennie. These Droids seem to have a big appetite for batteries. I carry a charger with me. Settings the screen to auto brightness and turning off wifi, bluetooth and the gps when not using them helps.

    Smile Battery - Newbie

    Hello Quicksilver,

    Thank you for fast response!

    I use my phone all day, both for home and work... it is on all day ... i wanna say i text more than i talk on the phone if i can help it ....

    There are times when i didn't even use the phone and all of a sudden the battery status turns yellow ....

    I read a post to download an app called Spare Parts .... i did and it told me exactly what was draining my battery ...

    Are there any other droid apps that i need to install to help with my droid's performance? Please advise.... thanks!

    I think you'll get similar battery results with any smart phone. "Is this a better phone than the droid X", really depends on what you want/need in a phone. If it was me, I'd go with the X. But thats my own opinion.

    For starters I always have my wifi, gps and bluetooth turned off when I am not using them. There's a widget called power controle that gives you quick on/off access to these features. Here's a pic of it at the top of my home screen.
