Re: Battery Life
I think it depends a lot on how heavily your phone gets used, and how often the battery discharges deeply and is recharged. These batteries have a certain number of charge cycles before they start to lose capacity, so the more often they're fully discharged the faster they'll start to fade. To maximize battery life, don't let the battery get below 25%. Frequent short charges, to keep it above 50%, are better than letting the batter discharge fully.
Heat is also the enemy of batteries. Fast charging generates a lot of heat. Charging off the stock 700mA charger, or a USB port, is better for the battery that a high amperage rapid charger. Running apps that heat the phone up (like using GPS for long periods, and especially using GPS while charging) will shorten battery life, too.
In the end, just be glad you have an interchangeable battery and can get an inexpensive replacement. Just think how the htc One owners are going to feel when their batteries start fading.BROKE MY WRIST AND TYPING ONE-HANDED! Please forgive all typos.
PLEASE, when asking for help provide as much information as possible. Otherwise, it's like calling your doctor and saying "My head hurts." Your doctor can't treat you unless he knows whether you have a headache or a concussion, and we can't help unless we know what the symptoms are and what you did before they occurred.
Give a person an answer, and you've solved one problem. Teach a person to search, and you have helped them solve problems forever.
