    (1) Movies. I was able to transfer some AVI s to my droid and watch them. However, the experience is inconsistent. Some AVIs play, some dont. And some play video but with no sound. I used DVDFAB and Handbrake to convert dvds to MP4s, which I read will work, but i failed 3 out of 3 tries with different movies. I get Error, cant not view or play. (something like that) BUT the dvd that wouldnt play DOES play when i go into edit mode LOL. Whole thing makes no sense!

    (2) Battery life is horrible. I have it charged to 100% and make one call and check my gmail twice. By the afternoon it's down to 50%? Is it really that bad? I turned off all apps, gps, etc. I think it has to do with poor reception in my apartment which is a problem with all carriers where i only get about 1 to 2 bars. I will need to assess the battery charge when I go into a good reception area for comparison. Oh and if it says 20% - 30% when i go to sleep, when i wake up, the phone is powered off.

    Other than that, I am really loving my new phone!

    Full drain it once to calibrate, then every so often to keep the meter accurate, but not more than once a month.
