    I had an iPhone 3G and It would always last over 24 hours, I've even had it last 2 full days before. This was also in a low coverage area, if I had Verizon with their awesome service I bet it would have lasted even longer.

    Battery life is what I hate most about my Droid, I'm lucky if I get 8 hours out of it. I charged my phone over night, unplugged it around 7:30 this morning, and as of now at 12:30 it's at 40% with only two phone calls made.

    No ill will towards you other than I might have waited for an LTE version. That's all. Other than that, best of luck to you.

    Right now the Droid is being super sluggish, the battery is terrible, and I've been getting so many random reboots that I want to smash it on the floor.

    Deep down I have a feeling I'd be way more into some HTC phones. I just love the cleanliness of the iPhone, battery life, the feel, the organization (symmetrical icons etc). I understand I'll probably want to come back, but there's no sense in not trying something I've wanted to try for years.

    We'll see what happens, you guys all rule though and have been great to talk about our Droids with. I'll still check in obviously because i'm sure MIUI is going to go leaps and bounds ahead of what it is now and i'd like to see that.

    I won't move to the iPhone for the sheer reason that the OS is locked. For that matter, I won't get another Droid until they have one as open as the Original Droid 1. I like modding my Droid way too much!

    I was an Apple fan going back to the original MacIntosh. I still have an original 5gb iPod that still works! (It's the size of a deck of playing cards and three times as heavy!) I did have to pry it open once to change the battery pack since it would only last 5 minutes at the end of the original battery's life. That was quite a project. I also have iPod nanos.

    Apple lost me as a fan with their unabashed grab for cash when the they wanted to charge me additional money for songs I purchased on iTunes just to do away with the DRM encoding. Total BS! They should offer this to us free of charge since I have already spent thousands of dollars with them! I now purchase my music online through Amazon. I will not give Apple another dime.

    Anyhow, enjoy your iPhone......

    Yeah My battery life was NEVER good, hardly ever lasts even 8 hours of normal, to me, use. And definitely never lasted more than a day... the price to pay for now, that seriously is the only thing I hate about the OG. there other things that bother me, but I literally hate the battery life.

    just remember that you are running a little computer in your pocket, think about that before complaining about battery :)
