Re: Battery issues with Pre, 3-4 hrs?? and overheating

My battery life has been good. Not great, not bad, but pretty good.

Compared to my last device, HTC Diamond's battery life out of the box, good is super great. Diamond was horrible out of the box.

I don't run IM services or location services in the background. This helps. Location based apps sometimes update on launch, slowing the launch a few seconds... that's the only drawback, but it's no biggie.

Re: Battery issues with Pre, 3-4 hrs?? and overheating

My battery life has been good as well. I have left bluetooth enabled since I got it and today, just to test, I have wifi enabled. I am 4 hours into my day and after a quick nav trip, bunch of txts, read a few emails and downloaded the new missing sync program, I am at 82%. Thats pretty good in my book, much better than the battery ever did on my diamond!

I have to wonder how many of the people complaining on that forum moved from a smartphone to the pre and how many came from a regular phone? I am used to having to plug in my phone when I'm in the car to ensure the battery makes it through the day. I bet a lot of people are used to going a couple of days without charging so the pres battery life is an unwelcome change for them. Just speculation, I could be wrong.

I have had it overheat on me once. Not on the charger but when I was in a building with bad reception. When it overheated it chewed up a good amount of the battey. But from my experience battery drain happens with most all phones in bad reception.

Also one more thing, I tend to play with all the features of my phone constantly for the first few days while its still shiny and exciting. That alone causes battery life to decrease! I usually don't see real battery life until after a week or so of fully charging and discharging and I go back into my everyday usage.

I would give it a bit more time before coming to any conclusions!

Re: Battery issues with Pre, 3-4 hrs?? and overheating

battery life lasts from 7:30 AM to 9:30pm. i use internet two hours a day, fifty texts, twenty five emails through a POP account. about twenty minutes of phone calls a day. it does heat up, like the diamond and TP but it isnt bad. usually when im on the internet, it gets warm and when its on the charger it gets warm. But not to bad.

Re: Battery issues with Pre, 3-4 hrs?? and overheating

Looks like its certain phones. My coworker's phone was acting up, 3 hrs life. Then he pulled his battery and reseated it. So far its been good. Wonder if its a common issue with the connection being off?

Our other coworkers got a Pre, his battery life is excellent, both with Exchange connections
