Battery life, reception, a bug, and first impressions....
I am doing a full battery drain today. Currently at 43% on almost 9 hours. 56% was used for screen.... I do use the phone quite often. Texts, emails, some navigation, few minutes of gaming, some music, and I use the phone with a BTY headset. I started off this morning with about an hour or so of heavy texting.
Reception seems ok for voice. I have noticed times when the phone went to 3G....reminds me of my Bionic in the early days. Seems like there are some handoff issues, but very minor. Overall, I am ok with it.
My main bug is the voice-to-text when texting or writing an email. I use this function a lot, but about half the time, when I [press the voice-to-text button on the keyboard, it just tries to initiate the app. I think this has to do with my BT headset. I plan on trying to turn off media sounds to the headset to see if that works, but I like being able to hear my Goggle Voice VM messages on the headset.
Overall, the phone is a BEAST!! ZERO LAG....It handles whatever I throw at it. My bionic got horrible after the last update. Itís so nice to click on email, and it opens right away. Widgets initiate my music very fast, and itís just a joy....I am getting used to holding the phone in one hand, which is my main complaint. Also, it seems to want to slip out of my pocket when in my bucket seats....I went ahead and added the insurance (which I never do) to my account today. I picked up a case with a kickstand at Verizon for 19.99, and turned out to be $15 with my corporate discount.
Other than the annoying voice to text bug, I am happy.
Also, on a side note, how do I turn off email notifications for replies to threads on this forum. I have tried twice, and keep getting them. Is there not a global, I do not want any email settings somewhere?
