Hi all --
Been lurking on the site after finally joining the smartphone world with a Fascinate. Was wondering if you could lend your expertise.
Bought the phone at Best Buy, they obv. turned it on to get it all set up, contacts transferred, etc., then I threw it in my pocket and went on my way. Played with it throughout the evening, then finally plugged it in to get it charging, but continued to play with it. Finally went to sleep, let it get a full charge over night.
So, I then read (and I swear this wasn't included in the VZ tips/tricks manual that was included -- a full product manual wasn't included at all) that I should've immediately plugged the phone in after turning it on for the first time and let it charge entirely. Oops?!
Gotta say, I was a little disappointed with the battery life on its first full day of use -- 7AM - 8:30/9PM, battery nearly drained entirely. (I've since turned off auto-sync and installed the Android Booster app, ostensibly to help with battery life.) Even this morning, I unplugged at 7:30 AM, with light use it's down to 76% three hours later.
Long story (really long, I know) short, have I compromised my battery in any way by not charging it correctly the first time? I guess as a smartphone noob, and being accustomed to a basic, candy bar phone in the past (where I could literally get 3 - 4 days on a charge), the battery seems to be draining pretty fast so far. Any thoughts? MUCH appreciated!
