i received my HTC eris droid by fedex yesterday and i did a full charge while i was sleeping..about 8 hours of charging and it showed it was fully charged...i havent done much but texting a small amount today and it is almost dead. my lg dare lasted 2 days without charging and i did alot of texting and web browsing on it...hopefully ill download that Appkiller and see if that helps..but many people are saying it doesnt...if not hopefully verizon gets a fix for this soon
Yeah love the phone but, hate the battery life. Wi-Fi and bluetooth off . after a little surfing, talking and maybe running an app or two for just a bit, it's time for a re-charge. If this keeps up or don't find a solution soon , guess
I'll take it back and get the but-ugly droid.
BTW, on the Data plan, does surfing the net, checking e-mail, etc. count against your minutes ?
Battery an issue for me too, that said this is a pretty good phone. I have maximized battery by turning off weather, stock, most automatic app updates and email sync only every 30 minutes. For those that are in the same boat we shouldn't expect more than 4 hours....that is what was published by Verizon and HTC on their own web site:
Perhaps the software update early December will help....and I may wait for a larger aftermarket battery from someone like Seidio. If that doesn't work back to Blackberry. Really don't understand why manufacturers would not try and get at least 6 hours out of these smart phones by putting larger batteries with them.
