My battery story...
Charged my phone last night (first night w/it). Today I used it all day heavily. It was in my hands doing one thing or another pretty much non-stop:
- BT on all day (I've been leaving it on 24/7, and haven't had any drop-outs yet), used it w/GPS mapping at home playing w/generating routes, and in the car as well. Also used it in the car with a BT hands-free unit for calls. (That's cool...navigating and also taking a call on BT at the same time.)
- Frequent email (receive, read, send)
- Browsing web sites, reading and posting
- Misc. exploring of the device, settings, options, and programs, also installed and played w/Windows Live Search
At about 3:00 PM I checked and was at 40% battery. I decided to get aggressive to run the battery down as quickly as possible.
I started playing music (set it to play all the songs on my 8 GB card) non-stop, while continuing my other use noted above. Except during dinner. (What am I, a savage?)
About 3 hours after I added the full-time music playing, I was at 9% battery. Radio had still not turned off (I was able to dial a number), which surprised me.
I closed all the open apps at that point and put it on the charger to charge it back up.
It charged up very quickly...forgot to time it, but I was pleased by how quickly it was charged up again.
Overall I am happy so far...even with today's unusually heavy (for me) use, it lasted long enough to get me to the end a work day. I expect that with a more normal use level I'll go a couple days, but we'll see.
That's my next test...as soon as I can get myself to stop playing around w/my new toy and just use it normally, rather than compulsively.
