So I finally switched from my X2 to a Nexus and I'm in love. It's like night and day. One of the only problems so far (and I've seen numerous threads here) is the battery. It barely lasts half a day before recharge. It's ludicrous. I also think it's fairly dumb you have to shut off and disable everything that makes it a smart phone to get adequate life out of it. That being said, any recommendations on an extended battery? People recommend the Seidio, but I can't really afford that at the moment. Amazon has a number of $20 ones with the same capacity, any advice or experience? Is the "official" Verizon extended battery as much a rip off as it sounds? I'll miss my cool case though. :-( Without being rooted, is there a way to remove the keyboard and GPS icons from the notification tray? They're very irritating. Is there a Wifi app that automatically connects to the strongest signal Wifi? We have a booster in our home, and the phone will hang on to the crappy signal until I manually go in and tell it to connect to the much closer, much stronger booster signal, and vice versa when I'm back. Not the phone's fault, just annoying. Back to the battery thing, is that just poor design, or poor software utilization? Sometimes when it's dying and I'm using it plugged in, it will still go down in percentage until I leave it alone for a while. That doesn't seem right. Anyway, thanks muchly for the help!
