Hey guys, fairly new but I just got the g2x on wednesday and well, let's say I drained the battery (30% when I got it), and then charged it fully, and then fully charged it again, and let it drain.

My battery is horrendous, and I don't even use the phone that much. I'm losing 20% battery in a half hour - 1 hour just texted someone twice, used facebook for a maximum of 10 minutes, and searched/downloaded some apps I found very useful.

I know this is redundant, but I'm not sure what to do, i'm afraid to play NOVA or need for speed just because my battery is draining so quickly from just texting and minor functions.

I have TaskPanel to auto-kill anything, but I'm not sure that's really doing anything. Not going to lie, the battery improved from yesterday's charge. Maybe I need to give it time? But after 2 days, it's still frustrating.

Someone help

Call T-Mobile, get a new battery or exchange the phone. You have two weeks to decide if you want to keep it.

That's what I'm doing. Or just try a factory reset.

Alright, i'll bring it to T-mobile then ask them about it, and then if they recommend the factory reset then I'll do that, I hate to lose all my apps that I spend awhile downloading lol, but I guess there's never free lunch

I'm not rooted, I simply don't do it because I'm worried about voiding my warranty, and I'm really not that tech-savvy with the android, I'm really new to it, and find it difficult at times haha. Unless it's easy to unroot it..... then I'd root it

Its really easy to unroot, one button and that's it. Same program to root it. Just root it then unroot it after you're done backing up your apps.

what apps are 'extremely' useful? Id wipe, then download them one at a time. One of them is likely causing the fast drain.

If that doesnt help, def. take it back to the store for a swap.

That's what I'm going to try after the factory reset. I have like 150 apps lol. Mostly games.

Alrighty, well i really dont have that many apps haha, I have like SMS pro, and I added some widgets and launchers that's all, those are probably easy to download in all honesty.



Is it really that easy to unroot and root? Can you tell me what app I can use to do that? or how to do that?

I'm trusting that it really works because I'd hate to void my warranty
