Exclamation Advise me on Imagio buying plz!

Hi all
I'm looking 4 a new phone since my Touch II stopped working. I'm interested in Imagio. However, I've read many topics complaining Imagio's battery and RAM issues. Could u advise me on this? Are these issues solved at the moment? Can new ROMs help?
As ur usage experience, how long does the battery last after fully charged in normal use?
My normal use is fone (40mins/day), sms (10-15 sms/day), abt 1-2 hours of wifi/3G, reading stories (1h/day). Can the fone live for 2 days?

Re: Advise me on Imagio buying plz!

I think you need to ask yourself the following questions: 1) Do you need to stay with Verizon or can you jump to another carrier? 2) Do you need/want to use a winmo phone? 3) Do you need global coverage? If the answer is yes to these questions then your options are limited to the Imagio or another TP2. If you answered no to those questions then you have a lot of options. I personally have enjoyed my Imagio, I think the custom ROMs are great but not necessary. I wish it had more program memory since HTC's Sense UI uses a lot of system resources. I haven't had a problem with battery life but others have. From what I've heard the Imagio has better battery life than the TP2, so if you were getting 2 days use from your TP2 then I would think you would get the same amount from the Imagio. If you don't need global coverage and are willing to try another operating system then I would suggest an Android phone.

Re: Advise me on Imagio buying plz!

it is about impossible to get any smartphone to last 2 days under moderate use without an extended battery.

Thank you very much!
My answer: 1) I'm using another carrier; 2) I prefer winmo fones to others, but maybe i'll try another mobile OS if it can serve my work well; 3) I'll use GSM only and rarely use the fone abroad.
Do android phones provide better battery life? As my normal use above, do u think an Imagio can live more than 1 day (24h)?

Re: Advise me on Imagio buying plz!

One question first...is your old phone a Touch 2 or a Touch Pro 2?

The battery in the Imagio is the same as the Touch Pro 2, which is a larger 1500mAh (Touch 2 battery is 1100mAh). The hardware specs for all three devices are all similar.

Sounds like you want an HD2.

I have a Touch II, produced in 2007 Touch 2 may have a better batt life since it's screen is 2.8'' only.

The Imagio's battery is a good deal larger, so you should be able to get better battery life.
