    Yeah there is something defective with your phone. I have my bionic on all day at work from 8am to 6pm and I am using it all day, not idle. When I get home I still have 40% battery left. The other day I even used it for Navigation and it still had 30% when I got home.

    EDIT: Oh he was running a 100 widgets. Got it.

    As for the screen I not sure what you mean by grain, I see no pixels like on AMOLED screens, and I see no grain on photos...

    If you don't have 4G in your area (and won't be getting it for a while), I definitely advice returning your Bionic and get a 3G phone. When you get 4G in your area, then look at what's available then.

    I believe the "Blizzard Authenticator" kicks in when you arrive at Dairy Queen and helps to verify that you are in fact eating a Blizzard.

    I got better battery life after letting battery power off phone then recharged over night. The improvement was great and it appears to be getting better and thats with stock battery. Cant wait to do this to extended battery. I was concerned about battery until I got better results now I am a happy camper.

    I would imagine it will take a few battery cycles to get calibrated. I cant comment on battery life because I am always playing with the phone and constantly have to charge it!

    I have a charge and see no pixels. I also had a bionic and that had a grainy screen.

    What's your 3g signal like? The reason I ask is when I am at work (in a fringe area) where I have a weak signal it would drop 50% in two hours without really using it. At home where I have a strong signal I could use it to play games/surf/etc and after 2 hours it would only drop like 10%.

    Which means you don't need it as a widget either. Set it as an app shortcut on the home page and run it when you need it.

    Basically if you go away from using widgets for everything and simply run apps when needed and kill them when you don't, if you still don't see a dramatic battery improvement, your phone is defective. But I'm willing to bet that the widgets are destroying your battery something fierce.

    IMHO it does kind of suck to not be able to run the widgets you want to run.....Shouldn't have to compromise. IMHO widgets are one of the main advantages over that other OS.
