    So, I've seen other complaints and even read on BGR in re: to horrible call quality. I've gotta say, I don't have that same issue at all. This phone is amazing. I'm generally on the phone between 3-6 hours a day for conference calls and not a hick up anywhere. Sure, battery life is crap, but, what can you do?

    agreed...

    same here. Phone call quality is just fine. I can say battery life is not good, but then again I have only had the phone for 2 days and cant seem to put it down!


    Ill also comment that the display looks great and the touch screen works great as well.

    Just want to add that I too have been told by three different people that the call quality was great on their end. I am not experiencing any of the static/cracking issues either...so far its great. I'm glad I decided to give this phone a try.

    That's good news. Phone calls are the one thing I haven't tried yet, so I'm anxious to test out the call quality.

    My battery seems to be "re-training" itself just like my other Droid (Fascinate). I don't use the WiFi, but I'm already able to leave my GPS settings on and my other standard settings and the battery is lasting longer and longer. It does take awhile for the battery to "train" itself according to your usage, but it WILL get better. I've only had mine up and running since about 3pm yesterday (EST), but the battery is already improving. I cleaned up my applications, hid various ones, and stopped others from running and that seems to work well.

    If I may ask, how do you hide apps and stop them from running? Does this require root?

    Oh dear, now you're asking the hard questions. I use the Task Killer app. Despite the bad raps I've read about them, they've always worked fine for me and help control my applications.

    I haven't learned the Droids well-enough yet to tell you exactly how I do it (hopefully an expert will jump in here to save me???), but I normally just spend alot of time clicking and clicking and clicking around through all the menus and options and settings and make changes. I can't remember where I found the options to hide various apps, but I've come across the option to do that in my wanderings around the mysterious Droid universe.

    I also go into the application settings for management, uninstall options, force closures, etc. etc. Whatever I can find that seems to help save the battery power is what I play with until I get my settings to suit my fancy.

    I'm sorry I can't be more specific. I normally learn by clicking around and digging into the system, but I can't always remember exactly how to tell you what I did. :( Hopefully some other experts will jump in here to guide you better than I can.

    I follow you, no worries. I have the "System monitor" app (paid) version installed myself. I'm going to root this beast and rename some .apk files to keep them from loading but not for a couple weeks in case it needs to go back for any reason.

    Thanks. dancedroid

    System Panel is a great app that allows you to keep track of which apps use the most resources. It has a" monitoring" mode that will track those stats for up to a week. Unfortunately, I can't seem to figure out what's been killing my battery when idle.

    There aren't any real ways to hide your apps without rooting. Task killers seem to cause more problems so I stay away. Google reps have said they are useless as well as all the independent Android rom developers. You can root your phone with zroot and then use Titanium Backup to remove the pre-installed apps, though I don't recommend you do it unless you know what you're doing. Uninstalling apps has the potential to mess up your system. Buuut, if you do mess it up I guess you can always restore to manufacturer default.

    Don't be put off by all this stuff..most isn't necessary. Hopefully Motorola will come up with answers to address our concerns. Good luck!
