Battery Life/SB time


Jan 16, 2011, 5:47 PM
Talk: 4.1 hours max. (245 minutes)
Standby: 120 hours max. (5 days)

R they serious? This phone is a msg device and should have amazing Talk/SB time.

These numbers make you feel like it's 1998 and the only droid you knew were the ones on SW.

I'm not so sure it's just because it's iDEN, I believe a lot of the poor battery life is due to MOTOROLA.

Moto's have in my experience always been battery hogs relative to any equivalent device from any of the Korean or Japanese manufacturers. FOr example, our Verizon Moto phone used the battery just as much as any of our iDEN phones, and furthermore, the Verizon Moto had to have it's battery replaced every 18 months or so. And that was Moto on CDMA!

Actually, the best battery efficiency I have personally experienced with any mobile device was my T-Mo Blackberry, and the spouse's Verizon Blackberry is just as good. So from my experience it all points to MOTOROLA being poor at circuit design for battery life, not iDEN per se.

That sa...
