In August, three months ago, Milady and I decided to get new smartphones. We went with the Motorola Droid Maxx, which advertised great battery life. And, for a couple of months, everything was wonderful. Except that occasionally, we'd open our Contacts folder and find that the system had randomly deleted about half our contacts. Our frequently used contacts.
Aggravating, frustrating, we went to the Verizon store and they told us that it's not a known issue. That amazes me, because I told the girl at the counter about the issue and now she knows about it.
But, that issue now seems to be solved. However, there's another issue. Battery life sucks. When we got the phones, you could go two or three days between charges, but now battery life is measured in hours. Less than eight of them. I noticed it first, Tuesday a week ago (October 20th). I noticed that the phone in my shirt pocket was warm. Warm to the touch. Like the old hand-warmer I'd use to keep my hands warm while hunting as a kid. Very warm.
And, I've cast about online for a solution, but with not much luck. This is probably one of those things that's not a known issue. So, tomorrow I'm going back to the Verizon store and ask them if they've heard about the issue.
