Storm Battery Life - Findings
I am hearing a lot of people say "battery life is excellent", "this is the best OS for battery" etc. I am wondering what people believe is a good battery life.
Here are my stats of the phone and usage so you people can compare.
These are the programs I run on an every day basis:
I have .132 installed with Hybrid v5.1.
Blackberry Pro v3 Theme
Phone Usage per Day:
I probably average about 45 minutes/day talking on the phone
I read my email many times a day - probably about 20 times a day.
This is what I am seeing with my battery. Every single day at the end of the day (between 8pm-10pm) I am almost dead. If I use VZ Navigator during that day, my phone will completely shut off (radio turns off and sometimes the phone even goes does all together). I absolutely HAVE to plug my phone in every night or it will be dead by the morning.
Is this normal? This does not seem like "excellent battery life." Nor does it even seem like good battery life. It almost fits the unacceptable range. Can you others fill me in on your findings with the battery? I'm wondering if this is normal, or if I am either doing something wrong, or if there is something wrong with the phone.
