      If only this new phone doesn’t eat up so much battery power. I’m beginning to think that I got a defective one, as I’ve come to a point where I have to charge my phone every single day (sometimes even twice a day) instead of the usual every 2-3 days like my past phones (HTCs (this is my 3rd HTC phone) and a few LGs and a few cheap Samsungs). I don’t even have that many apps installed (it’s a whole lot less than the number of apps I’ve used on my last phone too) either, and I noticed that it’s the T-Mobile support app and even the system screen is what’s eating up my battery energy.

      I’m about to contact support now.

    I hope that you will enjoy your new phone! Like you, I’ve had to purchase (well, Tristan had to purchase a new phone for me) a new phone, which I just happened to get the Samsung Galaxy S7 note, which Samsung has always been good to me. Of course, the phone that I want has to have a recall, which lead me to another debate either another android phone or an iPhone. This time, I decided to go with the iPhone 7 plus. However, Verizon were completely sold out and they had to back order the phone. I’m just shocked that I’m finally giving apple a try out.

      Well, after done talking to T-Mobile Support regarding the defective battery issue, I’m gonna have to go back to the store to have it replaced. Yesterday, I played my usual mobile game for about 15 minutes, turned the app off, and noted that the battery was at 75% when I placed the phone on standby. When I woke up this morning, the battery completely drained to 0% and I had to recharge it again, and this was after I charged the phone late last night too. It’s really inconvenient. I don’t blame the store or T-Mobile for this, as the phone was packaged in the box. There was no way they could’ve known about it.

      So, back to the store again maybe later today or tomorrow. I already made a list of my current apps so I would just install everything in one go when I get my replacement. :)

    enjoy your new phone, I have the HTC desire 626s, I love it and the battery is a lot better then my old phone. I had the blu studio, very expensive but the phone sucks, it barely lasted a year.

      Hello Jolene, thanks for stopping by! ^_^

      Unfortunately, T-Mobile (well, the one in my area) is currently holding the HTC Desire 530 and none of their more higher-end models (I had the HTC One M8 as my old phone), plus I can’t afford to purchase anything on the higher end also. In addition, HTC has a panoramic view of its camera in a good priced phone, which is something I really like (I do hobbyist mobile photography, so the camera is a bit of a big deal for me LOL).

      I actually never heard of the Blu phone lineup. Maybe it doesn’t exist here in California. Hm.

    I hate when phones don’t keep their charges. My old phone had to be charged everyday, and it was a pain. I have a Moto now and I only charge it bout once a week.

    Congrats on the phone though. It’s always fun getting new stuff like that.

      The replacement phone that I got is a lot better than the original phone I purchased, but also, that depends on your usage of the phone too. I use my phone to study my classes at Udemy via their app (my Kindle doesn’t have Udemy app available in the Kindle app store, unfortunately), which also means there is also a lot of media (videos and audio) being played, so it would take some battery drainage too. Still, the replacement still lasted longer than the previous phone LOL. ^_^

    Phones does seem to really have the 2 year life span or less. My Samsung S4 is close to “barely” breathing. My charging port got busted before the end of my contract so I had to bear with swapping batteries and charge it externally.

    I think I have found my next phone. The Google Pixel. It’s a bit pricey but I’m thinking of it as a graduation gift for myself. Haha. Anyway, the good thing is, it can be purchased directly from Google Store and their full retail price is $50 cheaper compared when you get it at carriers for the full price ($649 vs $699 — they still want to lock you for two years, lol).

    I want to blue one for the Pixel XL but it seems Google can even barely keep up with the demand.

    (Belated) Congratulations on your new phone. I did consider HTC but I want to get something that will not bind me to phone carriers (I thank Google Store for that option)

    Congrats on your new phone! I’m thinking of also getting a new phone because I have to charge my phone almost everyday and I didn’t know it was a bad thing until I read your post and the comments here. lol
