Re: Why does the battery die so fast?!
Not sure if your Newtrent has (2) 1 amp USB Ports, or a 1 amp and a 2.1 amp. If it has a .5 amp, that's old news, get a new charger. If 2.1 is an option, plug the USB cord into that and it will charge the phone about as fast as anything can. HTC disabled a "quick charge" feature on the Qualcomm chipset as that feature would have worn out the battery quicker and with the battery being non-replaceable, it would have been a disaster for many first adopters approx. 12-18 months from now. By making it charge slowly, it will last 24-36 months and by then most folks will have gotten a new phone. On the H1, charging from 0% to 100% can take anywhere from 3 - 4 hours. Always use the wall charger; 2.1 amps; a short cord, preferably three feet (I've confirmed in the past that the longer the cord, the longer the charge time -- at least for me); and, if you can, turn the phone off and don't use it. You should have to do that, but that's the quickest way to charge it. Hope that helps.
