Re: Phone app using battery?
Two things with new phones:

Usually people get over it after a about a week and settle into 'normal' usage - so the battery 'seems' to magically 'come good'. In fact, you're just not using the phone as much.
2. The first day or so after you set up an Android phone a fair bit of background updating and syncing can go on (depending on your settings) to get your new phone all backed up in the cloud and your apps and stuff restored from the cloud. So in the initial few days after receiving your shiny new phone it can seem like the battery is draining pretty rapidly - it is, but it's a temporary thing.
The thing to realize is that neither of these phenomena have anything to do with 'conditioning' the battery. In fact the most charged your battery will ever be will be on day one. With Li-based batteries it's all downhill from there. They never get better with a few charge cycles, only marginally worse.
