Battery

How long does your phone battery lasts ?

 

I charge it during the night then if I make 2 or 3 calls during the day not lasting more then 10 minutes at the end of the day the battery is all gone. Do you guys have the same problem ?

Re: Battery

A few people have noticed a short battery life on the Storm, I did too the first 2-3 days and it oddly got much much better after 3-4 charges.

 

Give it a similar try.

I agree with JSanders!

The first few days with my storm, the battery life was horrible.

Now, it is perfect and lasts all day!

Re: Battery

I like others had problems with the life of my battery at first.  I found the first week, that if I shut off the phone while charging, it seem to take a better charge.

 

Now I charge it overnight, use it all day at work and I seem to have about 40% battery life left each night.   That's working about a 10-11 hour day each day.

 

If this is new, shut it off for the next few night while charging and let it get a good charge and see if it helps.

Re: Battery

I am not a heavy user of my phone. I've had the phone for over 3 weeks but still with 2 or 3 calls the battery goes very quick. I had a Nokia before and the battery life lasted for longer, my partner has the Blackberry Bold and he makes and receives calls all the time and still his battery lasts at least fro two days.

Sounds likeyou may have gotten a bad battery.  I would take it into the store and have them check it and give you a replacement.

 

It shouldn't die that quickly with that little use if you're charging it each night.

 

I vote defective = return/replacement.  Smiley Happy

Re: Battery

dont forget there are many things you could do to improve youre battery life such as turning off youre camera flash, turning vibrations off, cleaning the metal parts between the memory and phone, deleting old emails.

Re: Battery

I too have been noticing improved battery life. I have been charging it in my car, i drive 45 minutes each way everyday. And left it on last night with no charger and it still lasted long. I jusy put it on my charger now and it was yellow.

 

I am running .85, maybe this is a improved battery life on the new OS?
