1. Battery life, I charged it and it lasted only about 3 1/2 hours though that was pretty much being used the whole time, I browsed the web mostly during my use along with maybe ~20 min pandora streaming, im running, took some pictures, streamed some youtube videos maybe around 15 min, I have 3 widgets (pandora, weather, facebook). Had twidroid running maybe half the time. Now I'm aware that this would probably qualify as "heavy" usage but the run time did seem pretty short even for heavy usage so I'm a bit concerned. 2. Auto brightness, I noticed when you first boot the device that when the lock screen first comes up the autobrightness is not functioning until you sleep the phone and wake it again. I was wondering if that is a normal thing.
