    Overnight shipping, in time for Christmas, looking forward to a white D2G for my girlfriend. She's been drooling over my original Droid all year, so it's time for her to step up her game and shame all her coworker's pathetic iPhones.

    Don't worry about that too much I regularly get a full day out of my battery. Switch to fission as soon as you can though. Battery life its far better sans blur.

    A great accessory would be the extended battery. If you want to guarantee a white battery cover for the extended battery, buy the r2d2 extended battery w/ cover, its solid white with a black M logo in the center. The extended battery has approx 40% more capacity, easily be able to last all day even with moderate to heavy usage. Droid, Droid 2 and Droid 2 global all have the same battery, and the same slots for battery covers, so they will all fit on each other.

    Fission is a custom ROM, like customized firmware.

    Its recommended not to flash custom Roms due to the lack of a recovery sbf to flash your phone back to stock in case anything goes wrong.

    Visit the Droid2Global subforum for the info on that.

    Funny!

    A buddy of mine at work has an iphone. He just had to get a smart phone after I bought my first Droid. We break each others stones all day long about who’s phone is better. The other day I sent him a txt after getting the D2G to tell him how cool and fast it is. I also told him my new D2G won’t even let me type “iPhone”, I have for Force it too….. he calls me geek and I call him follower…..:motdroidhoriz:

    You can get a full days worth running stock battery and most features turned off or on low settings however things change when your on it 24/7

    Hey Twobuells... are you on BadWeB?

    Update on my gf's D2G:

    Battery life is just fine. Everything is lightning fast and it blows away my original Droid, but I am still happy enough with it.... although I am suffering from keyboard envy!

    That's 11 straight hours of MP3s, texting, email, web, and voice calls.


    Edit: I just re-read that, and it sounds misleading. That's 11 straight hours of MP3s. And in addition to that, I did some texting, some voice calls, some email, and some web. It was not 11 hours straight of all of those activities. That would be impossible. That's what I get for posting late at night.
