    How often are you actively using your phone? Do you have things like gps and WiFi active all the time?

    I guess your concern is battery life.

    Few tips to help your battery last longer:
    Turn off GPS, bluetooth, wifi, autobrightness, and autosync.
    Change your screen brightness manually.
    Don't check your phone every 5 minutes, lol (yeah hard to do with such a great device)

    Other than that, the Incredible is known for having a pretty cruddy battery life compared to other Android devices.

    If your phone is not being used much then yeah the system will be using most of the battery. What its showing is not that its using 92% of you battery, but 92% of what's been used so far. If you add up everything it will equal more than 100%. I don't think there's really an issue here.

    Yeah mainly texting so far. trying to figure the damn thing out. I really wanted a droid 2 but when i went in they only had this or the X and a samsung fascinate which wife has, so i settled for this. Did I make the right deal or should I take it back within the 30days and get a droid2 global(they dont the reg droid2). Is the Dinc better than the droid2?

    android system is the OS that runs the device....if you don't do more than just text it will be the largest user of power.

    Well if you wanted the D2 then I would say take it back. If its not what you wanted don't get stuck with it. The D2G is a good phone. It all depends on what you want. Don't settle!!

    Haha! Gotcha! They're both great phones, they each just bring something different to the table. The battery life and reception are better on the D2. They could've shipped you one if they were sold out, my store has about 20 in stock. Not taking anything away from the Incredible though but, with a contract renewal, I'd recommend getting the one you want vs settling. Returning the Inc will cost you a $35 restocking fee as well.

    well for 3 months i wanted the Dinc until thursday I just figured i needed the keyboard on droid2. after a few days with inc i am used to touchscreen. They all have problems I understand that but after reading alot of posts on both and peoples recommendations I just flipped a coin and went to get it and they sold the last one b4 i got there. My Luck right. I am not really settling since this is the phone I been wanting but I just dont know what one is a better phone. Alot of people say HTC's are better at alot of things so i went with it.


    I guess my ? is which phone is easier to use and more user friendly?
