- I've had the Mesmerize for almost a week now and the battery is about average for a smartphone. I get through the day with a few phone calls ~1 hr worth of music streaming, few minutes of internet browsing, random fiddling and tweaking and 100+ texts. You can't really compare the battery longevity to that of a blackberry...BBs have freakishly good battery life.11-01-2010 12:41 PM
Battery life varies with each individual usuage. There is no one answer to battery life.
However, there is one thing you can do to not worry about it.... keep the device charging while using.01-21-2011 06:49 AM
- It depends on the user of course but you can make it last longer by turning off wifi and gps. Mine gives me about a days worth of up time before it needs to be charged but I don't talk much...mostly text and internet usage. Uscellulat does have that really nice battery swap if you find yourself too low and with no chance to charge.01-21-2011 09:50 AM
- My own experience is if I have the screen on (i.e. using my Mesmerize constantly), I go through ~10% per hour. When not I use, I guess it is around 2% per hour. If I'm using apps that use GPS, bluetooth, wifi, and so on, my usage might be more.
When I'm at my work desk, I have it on a cradle charging. It is in a cradle in the car as well, so it's plugged in there, too (mainly so I can use GPS). Between that and charging overnight, I haven't run out of juice. I came close when I first got it, but that was because it rarely ever left my hand.
It was just about the same with my BlackBerry. I used it so much each day that it wouldn't make it through an entire day (carried a spare battery with me for my Tour). I got into the habit of putting my BB in a charging cradle on my desk, and had a car cradle that charged as well. It was a natural transition to do the same thing with the Mesmerize.01-23-2011 10:32 AM
- one thing I know for sure, is I downloaded a clock with weather (didnt like the one that was included), and made the mistake of having the weather update every 15 min. WOW, battery drain. I changed it back to 1 hour and now my battery lasts a lot longer. I still have my sync on for gmail, but I also disable GPS unless I am out driving and need it.02-05-2011 05:23 PM
