All these 'feature' enhancements are useless if you cant keep your phone switched on for more than 8 hours.. I leave my home in morning at 10 AM fully charged and by time its 4PM my battery looses all its candles and by the time I get back home at like 6PM it starts giving me 'Critical battery level' warning.. and all this when I dont even use WIFI or listen to music.. just use it to store appointments check email and market rates and read news and check weather updates.. over 3G.. all day long I am always praying god, plz dont switch off my phone.. coz once it switches off its a pain in ass to charge it back again to the retstart level.. even once it reaches restart level I cant use my phone for next 30 mins and just let it sit and charge.. if I try to even send a text it immidiately switches off and another long wait follows..

With all these new feature and flipping of live tiles and multi-tasking which will be using some sort of cache to store your recently used applications, push notifications for third party apps, I am worried it might drain down my battery more..

These feature are great and wonderful.. their have been no other phone which has been as smart as this one in human history, but the 'Battery Enhancement' feature is most critical for me.

Or atleast in future release some new WP7 devices with greater battery capacity.. I would be more than willing to sell my Omnia for any new WP7 that comes out with a greater 'lithium?' capacity..

And BTW when was the last time we saw a new WP7 device coming to the market from manufacturers?? 6-8 months back.. that ASUS phone have been floating around since forever. I dont know when the heck will they release that phone in market.

Smartphones and chargers go together these days. You'll rarely find anybody, including many businessmen, who don't have a charger available everywhere they go. Especially considering the size of a lot of these WP7 screens, the battery is exceptional. I use the phone non-stop. I'm a Twitter addict, I use well over 13,000 texts a month, I make calls, etc and my battery lasts me the entire day. On days I use Netflix or constantly stream music I need to charge it on the go obviously, but other than that, it's fine. And I have the biggest screen of them all.

Also, about the camera settings... I really hope "saving" them is optional, because I actually agree with Microsoft and this whole reverting back to default stance. I don't want to open up the camera and have to disable a filter that I set the previous use... I really don't.

If battery life is that big of an issue for you, buy a charger for work as well as a spare battery for travel.

I have two batteries for my Focus, so if I'm traveling on a long trip and blow out one battery I can just pop another in. Also I have the option to charge it at work when needed
