I plead guilty to all allegations of conspiracy.
This has become quite the phenomena. I have a Motorola Droid X, which is diddly squat on battery life. I need to make sure I have my cell phone charger in my car (along with my car charger), so I can plug it in when I need to.
Thankfully, I am friends with certain bar and restaurant managers, bartenders, hotel managers, and other various hospitality employees, that I can get away with asking to use their electrical outlets. I refer to them as holes. 🙂
When I am at a friend’s house, I find the nearest outlet and plug away. The irony is, I am not always on my phone. The battery life is an absolute travesty for Droid X. Now I know there are Extended Battery Pack’s, but why the need to make us spend more money? The point is already made for me.
I have been involved in deep and profound conversations, but have to check on my phone to make sure it’s no longer in the orange (under 30%) and headed towards the green. I have seen other folks doing this and it’s a hilarious, yet disturbing trend. In the middle of dinner and drinks, let me just check on my phone and see how it’s doing. 🙂 What have I become? What have we become? Wow.
Now do other phones have terrible battery life? I know the iPhone has a great reputation for extended battery times. I have been with Verizon for nearly 10 years. I feel a loyalty to them but not sure they are deserving. I may have to switch from Android to the iPhone, the next time I am eligible.
Anyone dealing with this existential issue? I would love to hear other stories. Thanks!
