    I've had 440 since its been out and my battery life has been horrible. I'm talking about 6 hours.

    My wifi is pretty crappy too. No bars after about 20 feet. My g/f's torch 9810 doesn't do this at all.

    Anybody else having these problems?

    im having good battery life on .440. i would make sure you are properly closing programs when not in use. numerous items running in the background will decrease battery life.

    also maybe try reinstalling from scratch.

    I'm with dictoresno on this one... very good battery life on .440

    Easily lasting a day with average use, and 2 days with light use.

    I was on 261. Ever since I went to 440... my batt issues are history. I'm back to almost 9700/9780 glory days. I was surprised at your post.

    I'm having to revert back to the stock OS7 I bought the phone with, .440 is pretty bad plus I think the OS is quite buggy. Also this morning I noticed my phone hadn't charge at all the entire night, every time I plugged it in a notice would come up saying cannot charge the outlet is not powerful enough. I know that was a major glitch in the OS because I always use that socket, I pulled the battery out rebooted and it was fine. Not sure about .440 but I think it needs work plus it crashes on me for some apps I have like ESPN goals. So I have downgraded to stock OS7.

    Not having any problems at all on .440. Easily lasting through the day. Haven't noticed any bugs either. WTF are you guys doing? Go into options select device select Application Management. Swipe to the left on the screen and you will have CPU usage. Mine hoovers at about 8 to 10% just sitting. It also shows which apps are using CPU time and which apps are running.

    .440 has definetely been improved compared to erliar OS, but can't be compared to the old 9780's days: That has not been achieved yet I am afraid.

    On the less busy days I still have to charge at 19,00 when the battery would hit the red status
    Plus I used to prefear the cut of radios at 8% like it was. That prevented to harm the battery.

    That was on a day the phone wasn't being used
