21 minutes uses 11% charge. no video watched, no massive processing power used. checked email and the weather. continuing#fail by +Verizon Wireless. finally done with enough travel where I can chat with to see about getting a different unit or device altogether. having gone through 3 now, I've been more than patient.

- i had a few but not that close together. my shutdowns showed me the green O D I N screen- where it was the green robot- and then the phone just totally locked up - nothing worked- taking out the battery was the only option- which given the not-so-fast bootup for the phone was a total waste of time. the latest replacement seems to be holding up. Now i hear that apple's lawsuit will downgrade or disintegrate in-phone search... the gnIII is already out- there is such intense fragmentation in which OS people perceive android through and oh yeah- this google branded samsung was NOT ready for primetime even after we waited and waited and waited. next phone i get - i'll let the market sort out the bugs, and jump in when everything is working... worst case- it'll be the i5.Jul 9, 2012
- Thanks. Thinking back, for a few of those random shutdowns, the only way to turn the phone on again were to take out the battery and then put the battery back to power up.
By the way, did you get a chance to try the myCharge 6000 for your traveling need? The manufacturer was supposed to have a new model since April (which I havne't seen) and the new model comes with a built in wall charger.Jul 9, 2012
- not yet, partly because i've been so soured by this experience i feel less of an urge to invest in more infrastructure for it.- i'm just trying to be more vigilant about setting the screen on auto brightness- which generally always seems to default to 50% or higherJul 9, 2012
- Totally understand with not investing more infrastructure for it. By the time a new phone comes out, they may have different connections, etc.
When you exchanged the phones (3 of them), did you have to do it through Samsung or was it via Verizon's Customer Support? I am thinking I should deal with the random shutdown problem before my warranty expire. Was it a big hassle to transfer your phone's data and clear its content when you exchanged the phones?Jul 9, 2012
- if you've paid for insurance- this is exactly what it is for. the guys in the cell phone replacement business- are some of the fastest i have ever dealt with. my dealings were all with vzw- the phone practically tears the space time continuum to get to you before you even ordered it. i would totally keep replacing units till you are happy. that's what you pay the 10 bucks a month for (and if you're like me- what you've been paying that fee for over a long period of time)Jul 9, 2012
- I'm guessing you leave adaptive contrast on under camera lights and outside a lot. If I was in your line of work I'd get a couple spare batteries and the insurance plan.Jul 9, 2012
