I’ve switched back to the Droid 2 and plan to return my Droid Pro. I like the Droid Pro form factor better1, but even though it has the same model battery and I’ve triple checked that my settings are the same as the Droid 2, I get 2 real days of battery on the Droid 2 and can’t make it through a day on the Droid Pro.
I’m tired of fiddling to try to get it to work. I need to get a real day and a half of use from my mobile, especially when traveling. It’s a deal breaker.
Perhaps they will release a software update to the Pro that will help with whatever is killing the battery life; I’ll re-consider it then. I just hope that the Droid Pro is successful enough to show the Android hardware manufacturers that the form factor is worth pursuing in more devices.
