    HTC Thunderbolt and new Bionic

    I purchased the thunderbolt but didnt realize the battery was so bad.. Now I'm wondering should I have waited for the Motorola Bionic. Do you guys think the Bionic will have the same battery problem that the TB has, needing an extended one that large?

    I'm asking because I still have a few days where I can return the TB and wait for the Bionic. My old phone was a moto droid original and I loved it.

    Any advice will be greatly appreciated.

    I updated the first post of the thread with a couple more links, and added two pictures of the TB with the HTC extended battery installed, so check page 1.

    Well the bionic is going to have around a 1900mAh battery so, no it shouldn't have this problem. But who knows, what kind of effect dual core will as well. I'm pretty confident there will be a battery released around that mAh at some point, there has to be.

    I think that with the bionic's first gen dual core hardware and software, along with the (relatively) brand new mobile ddr2 ram it may need that hefty stock battery just to pull the same or even less than the same usage as the 2nd gen smartphones.

    Better than the Tbolt? Possibly. But we won't know for sure until we get some hands-on with it. I suppose you could take a look at the Atrix to get the general idea of the Bionic's battery life lol...silly me, their the same phone!

    Well according to an in depth phonescoop review of the Atrix, the battery life of that phone is not good, so we shouldn't expect any different for the Bionic. I will post the link shortly.

    Edit:
    Here's the link http://www.phonescoop.com/articles/article.php?a=7633

    Battery

    Here's where we run into a significant problem. The 4-inch display and dual-core processor set-up appear to be eating into battery life a bit. I was unable to get the Atrix 4G to last from 8AM to 8PM. It typically died between the 10- and 11-hour mark. That's just not good enough (especially with Bluetooth, GPS, and Wi-Fi all off). Power users can't plan their days around where they can locate an outlet. It also lost an entire charge (from 90% to dead) between 11PM and 7AM -- when it wasn't used at all. This thing is going to have to be plugged in all the time, and I'd even recommend carrying a spare battery if possible.

    Bought One...

    I purchased the 2750 extended battery when I bought my HTC Thunderbolt this past weekend.

    Yes, it will look a bit unsightly to some, but the fact that it almost doubles the battery life more than offsets that for me.

    So Far: 7.6 hours of mixed use and still going.

    so yeah, its not that bad looking and really adds life like crazy! gaming, 4g and heavy use for 4 hrs now since taking off charge and im at 76%. installed a bettery icon mod with 1% increments to see how battery life really is. extended on heavy use is slated now to last 16 easily lol. worth a slight bump in the back of the phone.
