    I have the DX and so far everything has been ok with it. It works great and hasnt had a problem up until the last couple of days when I noticed the battery life being very short. I found that under the battery manager in battery use, the display is at a very very high percentage. It seems to stay at around 90%. Currently it is sitting at 94% and the screen is on the lowest brightness level. Ive hardly used it since I unplugged it around 830 this morning and I'm already at 60% battery life. Anyone know what could be causing the high battery usage for the screen?

    Any help is appreciated!
    Thanks!

    It times out after one minute and shuts off. I've been at work and maybe used it for 30 minutes max today.

    Yeah that's not normal. I keep mine cranked up to 100% brightness (it's so pretty!) and right now my Display is only at 20% usage (though usually it's higher). You may want to first try a factory reset, then if that doesn't work go to a store and see if they can help you out. Maybe something wrong with your hardware.

    I'm also facing the same problem, my phone is at 50% battery and its only been about 4 hours... any recommendations?

    Btw my phone is on power saver with the lowest brightness setting possible.

    I read most of the forum posts in that link you just gave, I have had all my GPS settings off.

    Could it be that it is using so much battery trying to get a good signal? I often lose connection in my own house, i get very bad signal.

    It turns out that the espn scorecenter app was just donkey raping my phone with no lube. Yesterday I unplugged my phone at 830 and by noon i was at 50%. Today I unplugged it at the same time and im at 80% at 1 after using gps for a while earlier. This app is the spawn of satan if you have it lose it immediately. Also if this isnt causing your problem check your other widgets and apps as the ones with auto update seem to rape your battery. I cant stress enough how badly that app was eating my battery.

    Just curious, how long does your battery last on the highest brightness setting?
